@KimmieDy – Hi Joel!
Q – #1 Hi @KimmieDy! Tell us, where did you grow up and what were some of the life steps that you took to get you where you are today?

Q – #3 That’s interesting. What did you think of NYC, and what led you to returning back to MN?
A: I love NYC & wish I stayed longer. One of my biggest regrets. I was young & it was my first real job and it was hard. I came home.
Q – #4 So what kind of work do you do now in MN, what’s your blog, and what is your blog about?
A: came home and started working in the salon world doing various things!
I have a blog called www.frillsandflounces.com It is fashion, style icons,things that I see and love and want to share.
Just started it in the last couple months so seeing where it will go. I have a love of vintage jewelry so want to create a place
that people will be able to purchase the vintage jewelry that I buy and collect on my blog.
Q – #5 Nice idea! :) Lets find out your FAVS : Favorite – restaurant, store, color and summer activity?
A: My favorite restaurant is 112 Eatery but it is a tie with Bar Lagrassa. I love them both equally!
My favorite store is Styled Life. Everyone should go there! My favorite color is green but I always seem to wear black.
My favorite summer activity is walking my pekingese, George!
Q – #6 Ah, so you have a “purse pooch”. :) Do you take George to dog parks or around the neighborhood?
A: Well, He is supposed to be a purse pooch but he is more like a suitcase pooch! Too big for a purse at 24 lbs!
He is famous in the neighborhood. He goes everywhere…. he really loves Dunn Brothers and the Monte Carlo!
Q – #7 Does he get a pawpuccino or a poochie-latte at @DunnBrosCoffees? Is he your 1st dog?
A: He gets a sugar cookie! He is my first dog. He is almost 12.
Q – #8 Animals/pets are fun! :) So to end today, what advice or mantra would you like to share with people today?
A: Dogs are the best! Be true to yourself because if you are not, it will always come back to find you! Thanks Joel!
