    I've had to do this Five Items game for lots of team building activities, and it's not easy! I always put a ballet shoe, too – I was also a dancer for about 15 years, and you were spot on with all the life lessons it teaches!Kristinthedixiedaisy.blogspot.com

    This is so fun!I feel you on the bobby pin one — my hair is always all over the place and I always need to tame it. Also, yes to the ballet shoe! I danced from age 2-18 so I feel like that represents me as well.xoxo, Jenny || Breakfast at Lillys

    This is such a cute idea for a blog post. I loved learning more about you through this and the picture of your "messy hair" with the bird made me smile. My hair is always a mess and I think your response is perfect…I'm too busy loving life to fret over messy frizzy hair. Embrace the chaos that is life! (:

    This is such a great get-to-know-you post! It's really fun to hear the back story on all of these items because it really isn't about the item, it's about the sentiments attached to it. It seems like you have a great mom from this post!- Courtneycourtheylthings.blogspot.com

    I loved this post & getting to know. It's nice hearing the stories that go with these items that represent you. My parents gave me a similar ring in high school for the same reasons. It's a great reminder.

    You are such a fun girl! I love that the blanket and bobby pins were 2 items you included! I can't think of 5 off the top of my head but my list might include my volunteer shirt, blog planner, and a coffee cup! Haha – I might have to share a post like this myself – I love it!!!-MorganHow 2 Wear It [] http://how2wearit.com

    Such a sweet post! I love your Lilly Pulitzer dress. It's so delicate + cheery. And I can't live without bobby pins, either. My hair would be a mess if I forget to put them on.

    This is so cute! First off, I'm so happy you're cancer free. Such a story. Second, awesome reason to buy a Lilly! My first Lilly is for my bridal shower and graduation from school, so it's tied to future memories too…gotta love it. Third, I love how you can openly talk about what you love about yourself. It's honestly inspiring. <3Coming Up Roses

    This is such a cute idea for a blog post. You have me thinking about what five things could possibly describe me. I love your Lilly dress, and you look so sassy in that last picture. Love it!

    Such a lovely post! I love learning more about the blogger! It sucks when things get in the way of your goals – I also had to drop out of uni due to my health condition, but now I have re-started it again through part time learning!
