December Profiles in Awesomeness- Courtnee of Poppy and Gray

Have you ever met someone for the first time that you left your conversation with them thinking “They were so cool. I hope they didn’t notice I am super awkward”? That was very much the case after my first conversation with this month’s Profiles in Awesome.  Luckily, my awkwardness didn’t scare her away and we’ve now been friends for several years.

Courtnee is the first person I go to when I need advice with all things style. Every time she shares a new post on her blog, Poppy and Gray, I have to hide my wallet because I want to buy everything she shares. My favorite part of awards season is following her live tweeting of the red carpets. Courtnee is also an amazing florist, formidable momma and a tried-and-true friend.  Oh and her gif and meme game on Facebook is enviable.

I am so excited to introduce you to the December Profile in Awesomeness- my friend Courtnee

Name- Courtnee

Location- Cincinnati, OH

Family- I'm married to Doug and I have 5 awesome kids (Rian 28, Logan 26, Skylar 25, Zachary 22, and Rowan 5) the most beautiful beautiful 18 month old granddaughter and Henry the dachshund!

Company/job/cause/thing that takes the majority of your time- I'm a full time mom, enthusiastic but sometimes inconsistent blogger, occasional freelance florist, and a fledgling YouTuber!

Favorite Song to Sing in the Shower- Hmmm... I think it's probably Prince's Kiss. My sincerest apologies to anyone who's ever heard me because I'm sure it was painful for you.

Beverage of Choice- I love homemade lemonade but it's so much work! If I'm given an option for an adult beverage, these days it's whiskey.

Best Meal You've Ever Had - My husband and I had only been dating for a few weeks when he took me to Dee Felice, in Covington, for dinner. I'm sure the combination of the atmosphere and realization that I was falling in love made it the best meal I've ever had!
First thing you'd buy if you won a huge lotto jackpot? A farmhouse in the French countryside!

Secret Talent- Is overthinking a secret talent? Kidding. I'm good at trivia. I can't remember my license plate number or my mom's birthday but if need to know that Jerry Orbach was not only the voice of Lumiére in Beauty and Beast but also played a defense attorney before taking on the role of Detective Lennie Briscoe, then I'm your girl!

I use The Oakley Soap Co. products because...  They smell amazing and I love how my skin feels after using them. Also, Laura is one of the best people I know!

Favorite Oakley Soap Co Product - The body butters and scrubs are my favorite!

My sincere apologizes to Courtnee for taking so long to post this.  Originally she was the November profiles in Awesomness but clearly I didn't get my $@*# together in time.  Then I tried to get it up in early December but nope, still bad at life. Thank you Courtnee for being so patient!
