11 Things about WE {since there are three of us, we will each provide three things about ourselves, and two collective things}:
1. Isabel: I teach second grade and dapple in photography when I can.  I'm pretty obsessed with images.
2. Isabel: I waste a lot of time but think I'm doing something "really important".  Does that ever happen to anybody else??  Sometimes I call it "research" to make myself feel better!
3. Isabel:  I told my cat the other day, "Stop thinking about it and just do it already!"  I think that was me projecting my own feelings onto my cat.  Sorry, Arbuckle!  It was meant for me!
4. Kerry: I recently "retired" from teaching elementary-aged kiddos.
5. Kerry: I'm a pretty shy/quiet person at first; it takes me awhile to warm-up and be comfortable around those I don't know well.
6. Kerry: I am the only person in my immediate family that was born in Texas; everyone else was born on the east coast.
7. Maigen: I just got a part-time job at West Elm in the visual department!  So, for a few hours a week, I will get to play with displays and design {and get PAID for it, what?!}! 
8. Maigen: Right now, I am obsessed with different versions of the top-knot hairstyle and playing with options to make it fun.  {Who am I kidding, "right now?"  It's always one of my faves!}
9. Maigen: I have decided to make world travel one of my top priorities... I love to see new places!   
10. LCDF: Like most things in life, we talked about doing this blog for a while before we created it. Maigen & Isabel actually met for the first time at our first blog meeting in January {we were both friends with the ever-so-stylish Kerry}!  We needed a creative outlet that would also lend us a new excuse for more shopping!
11. LCDF: If you can't tell, our favorite stores are J Crew, Anthropologie, West Elm & Z Gallerie!

Dieting Fashions' questions {since there are three of us, we will each answer a few questions}:
1. Describe your perfect day. Maigen:  Sleep in; take a long, hot shower; go shopping with friends or my mom and sisters and spend tons of someone else's money on clothes and home decor; go out to sushi; make out with a George Clooney look-alike; eat chocolate; read; watch a great film while snuggling in my uber-comfy bed and fall to sleep to the sound of rain!  Is that specific enough?
2. Would you rather win the lottery or live the way you are now?  Isabel:  Um, can I safely say "Lottery" without being judged?!  But ONLY if I win it anonymously and no one knew.  I'd rather approach people/organizations than people hounding me for money.

3. 3 Things you would want if you were on a deserted island. Click here for our answers!
4. Top Favorite Book. Click here for our answers!
5. If you have super powers, what power would that be?  Kerry: I would grant world peace. How's that for a pageant answer? {No, I was never in pageants, but I do like watching them.}
6. After a stressful day, what do you do to de-stress?  Maigen: see question #1.  JK, my first step is to put on pajama pants the second I get home!  Also, a Seinfeld re-run is a must!
7. What do you fear the most?  Isabel:  Drowning.  I cannot watch water scenes.  My heart beats super fast, my breath gets really shallow, and I cover my eyes/ears or leave the room.  It's horribly embarrassing.
8. How do you see yourself 10 years from now?  Kerry: Living happily in the country-side with my husband, kids, puppies, and horses.
9. Do you believe in Love At First Sight?  Kerry: I believe in good instincts/chemistry at first sight. I think love comes later, which in my case with Dalles was like a week later. ; )
10. What is your favorite song?  Isabel:  I...don't have favorites?  Because come on, there's a specific time and use for everything!  My favorite song to make me happy, my favorite song to start the day with, my favorite song for belting heart felt emotions at the top of my lungs.
11. What is your favorite type of cuisine?  Maigen: Sushi.  And Mexican.  But not together.  Although, that might be an interesting fusion restaurant idea...
