15 things you never knew about "Rae"

by RaeLynns Boutique September 17, 2014 6 Comments

"I'm just a mom and wife, living my dream." 

At RaeLynn's we believe in the importance of building relationships. Over the next few weeks we are giving you the chance to get to know a little bit about our staff. This week we are starting with the heart behind RaeLynn's, Alison McDaniel. 

1.  I have been in the fashion industry for 15 years.

2.  I believe in second chances.

3.  If I didn’t own RaeLynn’s, I would be a college professor or a talk show host (I love Kelly Ripa).

4.  I love coffee but dislike Starbucks.

5.  3 words to describe me: smart, stubborn and sassy. 

6.  I gave birth to my son Max within 36 hours of RaeLynn’s opening, 5 weeks early and with complications—thank you Jesus he was healthy and happy.

7.  My daughter Carly has an eye for fashion, and loves being one of the RaeLynn’s girls.

8.  I eat chocolate every.single.day.

9.  I have the gift of gab, have never met a stranger and will talk to anyone who wants to listen.

10. My last meal would be at a little diner, Grandmas Kitchen in my hometown of Rochester, Minnesota- I would have grilled cheese, french-fries and a chocolate milkshake.

11. Some of my best friends and memories are my college years in Wisconsin (I miss cheese curds…need I say more!?).

12. I am thankful that my father and Dave Ramsey have taught me the value of a dollar, and have taught me to be frugal (most days…I’m still a work in progress).

13. I believe it is easier to forgive others then it is yourself.

14. I can’t remember the last time I shopped at Target and didn’t drop a hundred bucks.

15. My mother is the most self-less person in the world. I aspire to be more like her each and every day.

I found this very interesting and would like to add a fact or two from the outside looking in..first off Rae is more than a boss to her girls she is a second mother ( ik this because my daughter is a RaeLynn’s girl ) and second when it comes to being selfless she is VERY MUCH like her mother. Besides all of that she has an absolutely beautiful boutique and I LOVE shopping there!

I sure would like to join you in that “last meal”. Grandma’s can sure make a mean grilled cheese.
