an open book for a day.

Happy Friday Friends!!
Was this week slow for anyone else? Good grief I felt like it would never end.
Anyways, ya'll are awesome! You sent such fun questions. Let's get right down to it.
Jen from I'm a Nola Girl asked:
What book have you read that you would like to see turned into a movie? And who would star in it?
Easy. Water for Elephants.
Best book I've read in years. Casting is tough... oddly enough I could see Channing Tatum as the main character? For those of you that have read WfE - who would you cast?
Hilary of The Tale of this Newlywed asked:
What is your favorite thing about Charleston?
{Shem Creek - a favorite local hangout}
Not sure I can pick one. Charleston is amazing. We have history, the ocean, amazing restaurants, and has a small town feel even though it's not all that small. Who wouldn't want to live at the ocean??

Carol of Everyday Delights asked:
If you could take an all expense paid vacation to anywhere in the World, where would it be?
The Greek Isles.

I truly imagine this being the most beautiful place on Earth. I will visit the Greek Isles in my lifetime. I thought about tying it into our Italy trip but couldn't swing the amount of time off from work that we would have needed. Someday though.....
You mention that you travel a lot for work. Where is your favorite place you've traveled for work and favorite place for FUN?
For work, definitely New York City. I get to try new hotels each time, new restaurants, and meet with some amazing clients that are really passionate about their work. Every time I go to NYC I dream about living there, what my life would be like, and how I would swing it financially.

For fun, probably Guy's and my yearly jaunt to Austin, Texas for the Austin City Limits festival. Austin is an amazing town with some of the friendliest people you'll ever meet.

More question and answers to come tomorrow! Ya'll truly are the best. And clearly know me well. Most of the questions were about travel, clothes, & books. My favorite things!
Enjoy the rest of your Friday and come back and visit this weekend.

i know that Robert Pattinson is casted for Water for Elephants. i think i've read an interview about that information. he says he totally loves the book and the script and he can't wait to act in that movie..besides, he had an amazing experience with an elephant for the movie. it was interesting..he also said who he's gonna act with but i forgot that name..(you know.. RPattzz shock) so i thought maybe you'd like to know who is casted for that one.. i don't know about the book but i totally wanna give it a try. i'm pretty sure it's awesome now that you recommend it!
