Well, hello there!
Thank you for finding your way to my new blog. I am so excited to have you here! Chances are good that you know me from The Zig Zag Stripe- but I wanted to create this page as a way to share some more of myself with you all. My aim is to show y'all how I incorporate ZZS into my daily shenanigans : ). There may be some fun extra-curricular posts pop up as well (think: hair, make up, crafty stuff, food stuff- who knows what else).
That stuff aside, let's dig in!
My name is Erin...and I have a "problem". A big one. I am addicted to The Zig Zag Stripe. There. I said it. Luckily, I just so happen to work with ZZS, so I blame Leslie (aka Boss Lady) for fueling my addiction.
I started with Zig Zag within a few months of the company's beginning, when photos looked like this:
Talk about a throwback, right? My dear friend Lisa (see picture- top left-isn't she beautiful?!) kept raving to me about this new boutique she had found called "Zig Zag something or other". I checked out the company's Facebook page and thought that I would definitely like to try out some of their clothes at some point. To be quite honest, I didn't really think about that "Zig Zag something or other" boutique again until a few weeks later when Lisa told me that the owner had posted a model search...and that WE were entered. Holy cow- after I freaked out and said "NO" about a dozen times- Lisa and I tried to look presentable and went to our test shoot at Leslie's house. Never in a million years did I think this company would be interested in my less-than skinny, less-than perfectly put together self. Once I stopped sweating (or should I say: started to sweat less), we had about a billion laughs playing around in these beautiful pieces while Leslie snapped away on her camera.
As they say...the rest is history- and now I can hardly imagine my life without The Zig Zag Stripe (much catchier than Zig Zag Something or other...lol). I am so honored to work with a company that values everyone regardless of how less-than skinny, or less-than perfect they are.
Now, about the rest of me. I am an Arlington, Texas native. I love, love, love living in this area. My house is pretty much smack-dab in the middle of anything fun you could imagine. I am a Sixth Grade teacher at an amazing school. I am married to my best friend, and we have three of the funniest dogs you could ever meet.
Well, friends, I will leave you with that for today. Be on the lookout for more coming your way soon!
