Who Are You?

What is this place called Fashion Plate? The blog with the name-that-makes-no-sense?

Am I a fashion-blogger? Nope.
Am I a design-blogger? Nope.
Am I a mommy-blogger? Nope.
Am I a funny-blogger? Nope.
Do I write poems? Nope.
Do I write life-lessons? Nope.
Do I photograph awesome stuff? Nope. Not much anyway.

What the hell do I do?
  • I twist my hair like it's my job.
  • I stand in the middle of rooms and wonder where to start.
  • I laugh abruptly.
  • I cry easily.
  • I procrastinate as though I'm training for a competition.
I kind of meander along. Scattered a bit.
Um, yeah. Note flip-flops and awesome pedicure.
This is why I love the fall season. It is a beginning to me. The season marks the beginning of all the new fall fashions, all the new fall television shows (come on - we know it's fun to watch a few new ones), all the new fall classes, all the new fall students returning to school, all the projects to list down that couldn't be done during the hot summer season.

Leaves get picked up, gardens get plucked, cars get vacuumed and scrubbed, windows in houses get cleaned. Shiny and new and lovely as a new penny.

What are you about? What is your favorite season?

My favorite season is anything cooler than our HOT summer! If it makes you feel any better, I don't have a blogger niche, either and I always say I muddle, with a limp.

I love them all for different reasons, and usually toward the end of one I start complaining about it... enough of the heat already, enough with the rain!.. JEEZ it's sooo coooold... OK, everything looks dead now that leaves are down... blah blah blah. I do feel lucky to live in an area where we have four seasons...

Love the flip-mix there.

I think your all of those kinds of bloggers in one person! I like your perspective on things. I love the fall. I was married in November. My first son was born in October. I like the beginning of the school year. Most of all, I love fall colors. And the food.

I agree with Kelley. You ARE all those kinds of bloggers. You're a fabulous blogger. And you have an infectious personality.

As for MY favorite season? Hands down...FALL. Anyone who knows me even remotely could have guessed it. I stay on a constant HIGH throughout this season. The smells, the colors, the crisp, the events, the holidays, the WARMTH that it encompasses. It's all of that and more.

Good blog post, Deborah. As always.

I love fall
the crisp air, the colorful leaves, the sights and smells and ooo the fall fashions, scarves, boots and corduroy!

So. Cal. Gal said...

Are you wearing 2 different flip-flops??? Honestly, I'm not surprised. ; )

I'm a Summer girl through-and-through! Thank God I live in CA. Winter anywhere else would kill me (well, except for maybe FL but why would I want to live there when I live here?). Spring is too rainy. And don't EVEN get to started on Fall. The only good things about it are cool sunsets, hot chocolate and electric blankets.

Haha..I found you over on Karen's blog (This Old House 2) and hoped over to check out the hot men Friday..haha..(if I was married at a "normal" age he would probably be young enough to be my grandson!!)
I am laughing at "who you are" because you sound like me!
I added you to my blog, because I think there is style in everything too.
