Get to Know Me–10 Fun Facts

Hello, I started this blog as a new years resolution to myself.  I am a stay-at-home mother to a beautiful 2 year old girl. I wanted to put any spare time I had to showing other people how creative and crafty they could be. I love to cook, create new recipes, and try new things. I figure it may be fun for everyone to get to know me a little bit better…so here it goes!

  1. I changed my major multiple times before landing on Sociology and recently graduating with a Bachelors in Sociology with a minor in Health and Wellness Coaching. I started off as an Education major hoping to teach 1st graders, I switched to Criminal Justice with a great desire to be a probation officer. I was informed a year and a half into school by one of my professors that they couldn’t “in good faith” allow me to continue pursuing such a path. I couldn’t “fix everyone’s problems by baking them cookies,” In this soul-crushing lecture, I was informed that I was a “brilliant writer” and should pursue that path. I changed my major at that time to Journalism. I thought “Hey, I could be a wonderful news anchor!” It was at that time a few months in that my professor told me “The voice of a magazine writer, but not that of a news anchor.” Which landed me to Sociology. Bottom line, I wanted to help people. I went to school to help others and I didn’t graduate until I was 27 years old.
  2. I love reality TV shows. I watch Big Brother religiously every summer.
  3. I did my own hair and makeup for my wedding. weddingblog
  4. We named our daughter “Ellie” after the movie Up! The relationship between Carl and Ellie reminded me of my grandparents and I wanted to pay tribute to them somehow.can3
  5. I absolutely love to read. Going to the bookstore is one of my favorite things to do. The excitement most girls get when they get a great deal on shoes, is the excitement I feel when I get a great deal on books. Nicci French is my favorite author. They are a husband and wife duo who write sexy mystery novels.
  6. I think Tommy Boy is my all-time favorite movie!
  7. I think Amy Farrah Fowler from the Big Bang Theory is the greatest, underappreciated television character.
  8. I would love to be the owner and operator of a Bed and Breakfast at some point in my life.
  9. I didn’t know how to cook or bake until I met my husband. I got really excited about the idea of making something amazing for another person. I had no idea it would turn into such a hobby of mine.blogg
  10. Two months after meeting (my now husband) I saw a palm reader who informed me that I was with the great love of my life, she could see the happiness in my heart, that I would be married once and it would last for the rest of my life, and together we would have musically gifted children.

Ha! I hope you enjoyed my list of 10 random facts.
