When I found Pretty Little Me's Etsy Shop I fell completely in love!  I'm so excited she's doing a giveaway here today!  Everything in her shop is just so pretty! I bought this pretty cuff and ring for a Christmas present and kept the necklace for myself! 

Katherine of Pretty Little Me has such beautiful headbands, earrings and adorable bobbi pins, too :)  It's all so uberly awesomely pretty! and another thing I appreciate about her shop is her great photography.  Visit her Etsy Shop, you'll be glad you did!  

Everything in there is pin-worthy!

Katherine is offering one lucky reader this pretty little necklace. Wouldn't it be an awesome surprise if you found out you won this necklace on Valentines Day??
 I wanted all you guys to have the chance to get to know Katherine a little bit so, she's the first to take part in my new 20 questions series!! yay!!
So, the 20 questions series goes like this... I ask someone cool 20 questions so that you can get to know them better. simple, right?
Here we go!
Here's Katherine, isn't she beautiful??
Hey, I am KatherineMW.  I like my church. i really like my husband.  I like to travel. I like laughing, and I think I am funny (because one of my sisters tells me I am). I like putting puzzles together with my children.  I like photographing glimpses of my life as the days go by. And I feel more like a cute mom with a pair of pretty earrings on. 

*Do you have children?
I have 2 children.  Grace is 5 and Willis is 3.  Yes, my kids are Will and Grace!  They are both family names, but also very significant to their entry into the world.  There were complications with both my labors.  During the wee hours of the morning, after a long, restless night of “labor” with my daughter, my nurse was comforting me, telling me all would be well and that because we were in a hospital, my baby would be saved by the Grace of God.  After my nurse left the room, I turned to my Lance and said (of course while bawling), “We are naming her Grace.”  And it fits perfectly.  My son’s labor came with additional complications, resulting in moderate cerebral palsy.  My sweet son had no signs of life at birth, and needed to be fully resuscitated.  From the very beginning, my son has had a very strong will, so it stuck like glue.  I love my children, being a mother is complicated and tough and amazing, especially of a child with special needs, but I would not trade my life for anything.  I am blessed.

*what one word would you use to describe yourself?  Faithful.

*what's your favorite color?  Green.  Or maybe peach.  I have always loved the color green, and I like to wear the color peach.

*Which do you prefer hot chocolate or coffee?  Nestle hot chocolate.

*if you could have a super power what would it be?   Hmmm. I would love to magically change bodies – I would love to heal my son from him physical ailments!  I would also change my body and give me the right size curves where I want them.  And I would love to give and have wings, so we could all fly.

* what one word would you use to describe your business?  Feminine.

*which do you prefer the beach or the mountains?  I prefer the beach, but my fair skinned family should really be in the mountains.  One of our favorite vacation spots is Glacier National Park.

*favorite season?  Spring.  So refreshing and new.

*favorite pizza toppings?  My favorite pizza is italian style margarita pizza.  Settebello in SLC is my fave.

*night owl or early bird?  Both.  I stay up late working on Pretty Little Me or editing photos for my photography business, but then I get up at 5:45 every morning to walk/jog – that is my therapy. 

*favorite TV show or movie?  I love Parenthood.  Oh man, so real. 

*what is your guilty pleasure?  Sex in the City reruns on TBS or E, so the naughty parts are censored.

*what is your favorite phone app?  Instagram.

*what is your most embarrassing moment?  Eeek, too embarrassing to put on the www!!

*what's your favorite ice cream flavor?  Limited edition Amaretto Almond Crunch, by  Haagen-Dazs.  Seriously, heavenly flavor, and so silky.  Dang, I need to go buy some more.

*how did you meet your spouse?  Church.  Nothing fancy, but so happy we ended up together.  He’s so awesome, he is my rock.  I really like my husband.

*what's one food you can't live without?  I really love food (dangit!), I could do without mushrooms however, they are the yuckiest!

*what was the happiest day of your life?  when my house is clean and my kids are happy and my work is done . . .  no,  i don’t think I have had just one happiest day.  I have many happy moments I lock in and continue to create with my family.

*favorite sport?  I am not an athlete, at all, but I do like watching college football with my husband.  Oh and I do kick lance’s butt in Wii bowling.  I do enjoy yoga and jogging, if I get off my behind to do it!

*name one item on your bucket list . . . I have never written a bucket list for myself.  But a few things I am hopeful for are . . . to go on a mission with my husband someday, have my own craft room – that is all white and pretty, become a runner, have more children, take my family to Disneyland and create something that will magically wash and dry and fold all my laundry!
