I was tagged by Manda of Eat Cake to answer 11 questions. Since I recently played this game I am going to break some of the rules and just answer.

Edgartown Columbus Day Weekend 2011

1. What inspired your blog?
Like many other bloggers, I had been reading and following blogs for a few years before starting my own as a creative outlet (see my first post). As for the name, I bought the domain "" in 2008 for another venture in the works. I started my blog in 2011 and figured I might as well use Vineyard Loveknots in the meantime.
2. What lessons have you learned from blogging?
It ain't cheap. You will discover new blogs with new things you want to buy everyday. I'm inspired by so many!
3. What's your favorite article of clothing you own and why?
I love wearing dresses - one and done! When I pair a top/bottom it takes me forever.
4. It's a rainy, gloomy day. What are your plans?
I usually turn on the radio and take a nap. I don't get nearly enough sleep during the week so catch up when I can.
5. One pet-peeve when it comes to blogging?
Spammy "Follow me I'll follow you" type comments.
6. Losing what piece of jewelry would devastate you the most?
My cross necklace. I'm not sure I would ever find one just like it again.
7. Where would you recommend going for a quick getaway?
Martha's Vineyard. Duh!
8. Your next goal in life is what?
Hmm... that's a tough one. I'd love to be my own boss someday.
9. Favorite comfort food?
Hands down, grilled cheese.
10. If money was no object starting NOW, what would be your first purchase?
Let's go to Chanel.
11. A book you've read more than once and can recommend? 
The only book that I have reread that comes to mind is Harry Potter.

I was also tagged by Abi Jane of Lilly Limes and Kelsey of The High School Prep for the Versatile Blogger award. Since both ladies are in high school I thought I would travel back in time for my 7 facts.

A few of my senior portraits

1. I was senior class president.
2. I was editor-in-chief of the yearbook for two years.
3. I ran cross country and winter track to stay in shape for spring lacrosse. Unlike lacrosse, I didn't take either seriously and really dreaded practice.
4. I skipped classes multiple times to go to MTV's TRL studio. Teeny bopper!
5. Even when I could drive myself to school I would beg my mom to drop me off so I had extra time to study in the car. I crammed for just about every test and learned quickly in college that my study habits needed to change.
6. I applied early decision to Lehigh and luckily it worked out.

Junior Prom

7. I laugh when I think about this prom dress. Sheer stomach panel, haha. I went to junior and senior prom with my friend Matt and I couldn't have asked for a better date! (He has a food blog, Matt Likes to Cook - Matt Likes to Eat with amazing recipes like Chocolate Maple Bacon Pecan Fudge. Check it out!)

Thanks to Manda, Abi Jane and Kelsey for the tags!


  1. Love these tags when I get to learn more about bloggers! Yay for senior class president, and I love that you would go to MTV's TRL! I was living in NYC at the time and they would have me go often...wonder if you were ever there when I was! :) I agree with you on #5...seem to be getting more and more of those these days! ;) Hope you have a Fabulous Friday! :)

  2. This is too cute...I haven't looked at my prom pics in ages! Happy Friday. xx

  3. Thanks for answering these! :)

    Have you always lived in Connecticut? My Husband looked at me as though I was crazy when I mentioned "Senior Pictures" to him. He said he'd never heard of them before!

  4. love posts like these to learn more about the people behind the blogs we read.

    have a great weekend!

  5. @Manda - Yes I grew up in CT. My school had a preferred photographer for a senior portrait session - you had the option to buy prints or just use one for the yearbook. I went to another photographer in CT that was popular among the girls for a different look. Most people got photos to trade - those are the ones I featured above!

  6. I totally agree on grilled cheese as favorite comfort food!

    And blogging is definitely dangerous for the wallet! I find so many things to bookmark (and eventually buy)
