Spinsters I Know and Love: Kate McElveen

It's been quite a while since we had a "Spinsters I Know and Love" post, but after seeing Kate McElveen this weekend, I knew I needed to do another.  When Kate returned her answers answers to the Spinster questionnaire, I found I was quite right in this idea. 

I don't remember meeting Kate McElveen, but my parents bought the house I grew up in from Kate's parents. Kate and I went to elementary school together, and then we ended up at the same high school as well. Eventually, Kate went on to the South Carolina Governor's School for the Arts and Humanities and later to a different college than I did, and I really don't know that I've seen her much since then. However, when she said ranch dressing was the fat girl's ketchup, I remembered how much I liked her.

In addition to being so fashionable that she recently styled a shoot for Garden and Gun, Kate is witty in that way that makes you want to sit on the back row of any seating arrangement and whisper-giggle. What is she whispering, you ask? Well, for one thing, she recommends Under Armor compression shorts from the boys' department if Spanx aren't quite your style. For another, she shares a love of activewear from the men's department like I do. Only, she prefers gym shorts while I like to go with the elastic-ankle sweatpants. Still, you can see how I could like a girl like this.

So, without further ado, I give you Kate's answers to the Spinsters I Know and Love Questionnaire:

Something enjoyable about being single: Doing (eating) what I want, when I want, where I want. And taking full advantage of the "McElveen minute".

If you had a one-sentence spinster philosophy, what would it be? "I'm just doing me and you can never understand it..."

Currently in your Netflix and/or Hulu queue: Keeping Up With The Kardashians; about Bruce. 

The question on everyone's mind: Kittens or Puppies, and why? Puppies...because cats are sneaky and remind me of myself too much.
