About Us

Hello! Welcome to our blog. Viv and I are from North Carolina but currently live in Utah.  I was married last fall to Jordan and I just started a graduate program at BYU studying Wildlife and Wildlands Conservation.  I started this blog with Viv because she asked me to and I hope that it will help me branch out more and be more brave and creative with what I wear.  To get to know me a little better blow are 10 random facts about me.

1. I love kitties! My husband calls it an unhealthy obsession. I always get a kitten calendar for Christmas. He makes me put in on the side of the refrigerator where no one can even see it.
2. I hate putting condiments directly on my burger. I only dip it.
3. I find trashy shows on Netflix and watch them constantly until I run out of episodes to watch (examples: Desperate Housewives, Greek, and Gossip Girl)
4. Reality cooking shows are my absolute favorite!
5.  I love bows and ruffles. My husband says I dress like either an 8 year old or an 80 year old.
6.  I love to craft and sew. I try really hard to refashion things I find at the DI. Most of them don’t turn out so great.
7.  I LOVE Harry Potter.
8. Sandwiches are one of my favorite foods. And so is lettuce.  I have been known to eat a lettuce sandwich
9.  For my job at school I play with otter poop. Weird, I know.
10. As far as fashion goes, some of my current favorites are animal and floral prints.
 
I am Vivian.  I’m an idental twin and I’ve been married for just over a year and a half to my awesome husband Jensen.  We have one child, a cat named Pigeon who joined our family a few months after we were married.  I graduated from BYU last April and now I’m working as an administrative assistant while I figure out what I can do with my degree in Physiology and Developmental biology.  I love clothes, but I feel like I usually wear the same things over and over, so I hope this blog with help me to be more creative and more adventurous in what I wear.
Random facts about me...

1. I am obsessed with reality tv shows. And I still watch Survivor, but cooking reality shows are my favorite
2. I have a strong belief that my new last name is pronounced wrong. (It's spelled Patterson with two Ts)  It should be Paterson with a long "a" sound. And this is why: all these words... tater (as in potato), tatter, Mater (from Cars), matter, later, latter.
3. I like applesauce probably more than any adult I know, with pizza, chicken nuggets, and of course pork chops! Yum
4. I love writing lists. Grocery lists, lists of things to do, lists of things I want (my favorite kind of list), lists of lists I need to write.
6. I wish Hogwarts were real and I could go there.
7. Every time I ever have a dream about cats they're killer evil cats that I have to kill so I can survive. Sometimes by kicking them or hitting them with a hammer or a sword. I don't know why because I really do love cats.8. One of my biggest fears is parasites. Mostly getting one. Like some sort of worm inside my body or something laying eggs in my head. I think this may come from watching too many weird medical shows. I'm also afraid of people in masks. They really really creep me out.
8. I LOVE cardigans. and colorful tights. and painting my fingernails.
9. I really hope that one day I have twins, and I know you're all probably thinking "well you've never raised them", and I know I haven't but I am one and I think they're pretty awesome. You always have a best friend to play with (unless you're fighting) :)
10. I get nervous and awkward when I’m going somewhere new by myself.  My nervous habit is to hum a little tune to myself when I’m walking to or away from a group of people and I’m alone.
