HELLO I'M TARA
nice to meet you
I’m a country girl from my cowgirl boots to my down-home roots. On Wednesday nights you can find me country dancing. Blush pink is my kryptonite, seriously though 90% of my impulse buys are something that is blush pink… oops! Speaking of blush pink, when I go to Starbucks I order one thing and one thing only: Venti Pink Drink, light ice (Strawberry Acai Refresher with coconut milk instead of water). If you haven’t tried it… you need to! Another fun past time of mine is going to Hobby Lobby, although my wallet feels differently; thank goodness for their online coupons! One more fun fact is that my favorite season is Christmas, and not just because I have an unusually large collection of Christmas socks- I love giving gifts and making people happy!
