10 Things You Didn’t Know about Lori Allred


We are going to start off introducing our new Design Team for 2011 to you starting today. You'll start seeing us post TWICE a day (not including today) to introduce to you one of our original DT girls and one of our newbies. And each day that you stop by our blog and our team member's blog you could win goodies from Imaginisce!

But to get the ball rolling I thought as the DT Coordinator and Social Media Marketing gal at Imaginisce that I would get things started! I thought we'd do something fun and tell you 10 Things You Didn't Know about Lori Allred (me).

#1 My favorite number is 12…because I could stop wearing those puffy orange life vests on my grandparents boat when I turned 12 years old.

#2 I hate NUTS…any type and in anything…don’t like the smell or the taste of them or the taste of them. I am not allergic to nuts! I just don’t like them. In fact, they taste like wood to me.

#3 I am a HUGE reality TV junkie…Any type of show works for me (except those lame game show types like “The Mole”); everything from Top Chef, Amazing Race, The Bachelor, Ice Road Truckers and Deadliest Catch. Oh and my number one favorite is Survivor…seen EVERY season and every episode that’s ever aired.

#4 There are three things I love to do when I commute home from work…sing loudly, chew bubblegum or talk to my bff on phone….every day!

#5 Growing up I wanted to be a truck driver or a lawyer. So that didn’t work out and instead I married a truck driver and I work with a lawyer.

#6 My most favorite thing to do when I have free time and money is to go to the movies. Nothing is better then sitting in a movie theater watching a good flick on the big screen…makes me super happy! I even started a blog about the movies I see called Reel Girl Movie Reviews (which I tend to neglect).

#7 I think I’ve been scrapbooking in one way or another all my life. I remember being in grade school and setting up my own little studio under the stairs where I cut out construction paper and glue it together in books with all my photos. So I was destine to do this professionally!

#8 I still occasionally have dreams that I’m either at school naked or waking up late for a TEST!

#9 My favorite color is RED…and yes, that’s why I married and “Allred.”

#10 Pizza is one of my favorite foods and I firmly believe it’s the perfect food because it includes all 4 food groups!!

I would love it if you’d stop by my blog and check out why I love to be crafty. I’d also love it if you would follow me on my blog and/or leave a comment. Then RETURN to this blog post and leave a comment to win.

Of course pizza has all 4 food groups, there's no way to argue with that. I'm with you on the nut thing as well. I'll eat peanut butter but as long as it is in a baked good or chocolate bar.

Kath said...
