What's this blog about?

Sunday, August 31, 2008

Well, I guess this blog creation was inspired by my dear friend Nicole. You may know her as Nikki, but I just can't seem to make my mouth call her that. hahaha. We have been friends since high school, and she is one of my very closest friends. I love her!

I have been so inspired by all of her spray painting talent that I believe I will attempt to decorate my house...with her help of course. I am an organizer, not a decorator. I enjoy cooking and baking, and I have recently picked up the hobby of coupon clipping and CVS shopping.

What's the name about? Well, I wasn't really intending on creating a blog; I just wanted my picture on Nicole's blog page as one of the followers of her blog because that I am. One thing lead to another and I found myself on this page that wanted my new blog name. I had to think of something cute or creative; I didn't want to just plaster my name across the top, but to no avail. I couldn't think of anything, so I began thinking of catch phrases that my Granny used to say. My husband was brainstorming with me, and he said The Proper Pinky. You see, my Granny had this pinky finger that, due to a little accident in the kitchen, would not fold down by itself. She always had that finger pointed up so dainty and lady-like, whether she wanted to or not. It was always pretty funny to her and to all of us. So in her honor, I thought this was the perfect name. Also, I have always been very curious about the proper way to do things. As long as I can remember, no matter what had to be done, I wanted to know, before the first finger was lifted, "What is the proper or correct way to do this?". And if someone is doing something improperly, and I notice, it always bothers me. I don't know why. So this name really does fit, and I just think it's cute. Needless to say, there will probably be a blog or two about the right way to do a thing.

I knew you would eventually start a blog, and I'm so excited that you did.

I love the name, very fitting.

Oh, I already have a TON of very low cost projects for your house, and yes I've been thinking about it for quite some time.

You've been tagged on my blog. I thought it was time for you to post something again. That would be the Proper thing to do.
