ABC's of Sherri: Sherri Cassara Designs

I am thrilled to have Sherri from Sherri Cassara Designs (formerly Inside Out Design) here today.  Sherri is a talented interior designer who also creates beautiful weddings and parties, too!  She is one of the nicest bloggers out there, so I hope you read her lovely blog.  It's hard to believe she has a new granddaughter, she does not look old enough at all!

Age: 56 (yikes, I'm only on the first question and I am already thinking this was a big mistake!)

Best vacation: Italy was amazing. Taking our girls to Hawaii as a family was the most fun.

Chore you hate: Grocery shopping. Ask my family ... I just don't do it! I love to clean though.

Dogs or cats: Dogs! But I have both - the cat is always trying to kill me.


Essential part of your day: Prayer. And sometimes chocolate.


Favorite flower: Peonies hands down. And David Austin roses. But white Dendrobium orchids are the perfect flower to pop in a vase - they last forever!


Greatest Film: Do I have to pick one? Overboard, Funny Farm, Housesitter and You've Got Mail are ones I could watch over and over again and never tire of them. Something's Gotta Give for so many reasons if not just that gorgeous house, and Regarding Henry (with Harrison Ford) for the beautiful story.

Height: 5'7"

Instrument you play or have played: Violin, piano and guitar - none of which I played very well. However I have recently discovered that I show great promise with the zylophone.

Job you would love to have: I have often regretted that I didn't go to medical school. I would have loved to be a Pediatrician.

Kids: 2 wonderful daughters who are 21 and 27 (years that is) and a new baby granddaughter! Do I get to count my son-in-law?


Live: Long Beach, California

Mom's name: Joanne

Nickname: Sher

Overnight hospital stays: 2 c-sections - worth every bit of it!

Pet peeve: When people don't tell you that you have spinach or black pepper in your teeth.

Quote: This one describes me well:


Right or left handed: Right

Siblings: 2 incredibly talented sisters, one older and one younger (yep, I'm the middle sister).

Time you wake up: Usually by 7 - it depends if I get in bed before 2 A.M.

University you attended: UCLA for Dental Hygiene ... I know, go figure.

Vegetable you dislike: I love vegetables - I'll say collard greens because I have never had them.

What makes you run late: Trying to fit in too many things and not wanting to tell someone, "No".

X-rays: Teeth and CT scans of my brain and face (fell off my bicycle and broke the left side of my face - ouch!).

Yummy food you make: Sugar cookies!


Zoo animal: Chimpanzee.

Thank you again, Sherri!  You have such a beautiful family and your granddaughter is the sweetest little thing!  I have a bit of OCD in me too, so I can relate.  Oh, and those cookies look incredible!  Wish I was eating one right now!  xo
