Hey Gals + Happy [Girl Crush] FRY-day!!!
Not only is it FRYday but it is the first day of spring! And I know here in the south, we are welcoming warmer weather with opened arms! We do not do cold well ;p Speaking of cold weather, this week's #GirlCrushFRYday is Jenny- one half of Everyday is a Holiday from the Jersey Shore! [So I'm sure she could teach me a thing or two about surrviving the cold winter blues!]
Jenny is an artist + designer and runs a Everyday is a Holiday with her boo Aaron. They have been living the [artful] life dream for 2 decades having their art & designs featured in publications such as Country Living, Country Home, Woman’s Day and many more! [They sell the best wood diecutts, you've got to check them out here!] I have been a fan of the duo for a while now, and soo happy to introduce Jenny to you gals! She is a pink hair'd gal with a love for pizza, french fries and a collector of all things cute and vintage! Check out her interview below [where she gives the most EPIC explanation of how to eat your fries ever [which confirms, I think this gal and I were always meant to be friends!]
1. How do you like your [french] fries [flavored &/or sauces &/or where from etc...]?
Geeez, this is a pretty crazy question…because for years I had an imaginary band, and we were called "Jenny & the Incredible Edible Chubby Chopsticks (aka French Fries)"…but let's stay on track here. I LOVE French Fries, seriously love them. And I love all kinds. This is a topic dear to my heart. Honestly though, I've been trying to eat good, and we've been eating healthy for a couple years now…but I'll run the gamut of the mall food court…Waffle fries from Chick Fil A, those big thick ones from Nathan's, and Five Guys are awesome. And then there is the connoisseur in me. Aaron and I have been known to do a nightlong "Frittes" tour of NYC. And also, I'm from the Jersey Shore…home of Boardwalk Fries! They are thick cut…sorta like the one's at Nathan's but probably way more grease soaked…and they like to serve them to you with salt and vinegar…the sign at our local French Fry place says "No Ketchup"…and I follow the rules when I go to them. But oh man…I LOVE ketchup! And me and Aaron also make oven fries at home…pro tip: cut up some potato wedges and toss them in olive oil and cornstarch before baking…super crispy!
2. Would you consider yourself old fashion or new aged/modern type of gal?
I would want nothing more than to get in a DeLorean and travel back to the 1940's, stop at a Woolworth's and buy every single Easter collectible they have. So, my tastes are totally old fashioned, but I need modern technology to get at them. And since I don't have a DeLorean at present, I search these things out online.
3. If you were a cupcake flavor, what would you be?
If we're going by looks, obviously Vanilla with Pink Buttercream frosting. And I'd love some pastel sprinkles and a vintage plastic bunny topper.
4.Right now, Is your desk messy or clean?
What desk? All I see is a complete candy colored disaster.
5. Would you rather spend a day hanging with the Ninja Turtles, or the Care Bares?
Duh, as much as I love pastels and rainbows…pizza wins…so: Ninja Turtles.
6. Since you spend all day making fake food, what your favorite REAL food to make?
Super layered, mega tasty, heavy on the tahini, avocado, tempeh, and cilantro, vegan bowls.
7. What celebrity do people tell you that you look like?
In my teens everyone everywhere came up to me and said I looked like Drew Barrymore.
