My blog has grown quite a bit in the last year, so I’ve been trying to think of a fun way to kind of introduce myself to everyone who might be new around here. Although this kind of post has been done before by many bloggers, I enjoyed writing it and included some…quirky…facts about myself. Enjoy!
1. I started blogging because I was unemployed for several months after graduating college.
2. I have a sister who is two years older than me and when were younger, we slept in bunk beds—her on the top, me on the bottom. She would tell me to look up at her because she had a “surprise” for me and then she’d drip spit in my hair. I fell for it every. single. time.
3. I have a shellac machine and do my own manicures every other week.
4. The town I grew up in has a population about 250. My graduating high school class had a whopping 26 kids in it.
5. I absolutely hate mustard.
6. I once travelled to Europe with a British boy I met in Mexico on spring break.
7. I have a wart on my nose that I’ve had removed twice, but it keeps growing back. Help me.
8. I have an insane obsession with Law and Order: SVU and Sex and the City. The characters are my friends and we hang out every day.
9. When I was 20 I studied abroad in London and it’s been my favorite place in the world ever since.
10. My sister (the same one who spit in my hair) also gave me the nickname “dough butt” when we were kids. I guess I’ve always had a slightly larger backside.
11. I used to drink over a gallon of milk a week and now I haven’t had a sip in over a month (hello plants).
12. I love watching my favorite shows and movies over and over again. This is really hard to do since moving in with Trevor because he hates re-watching movies—even his favorites.
13. My first car was a 1989 Buick Century that was called “Gibson Power”.
14. I started working when I was 12 years old as a hostess at my Dad’s restaurant.
15. I had to have a tooth implant this year, but the whole process took almost two years total. Never get a tooth implant if you can avoid it—they suck and are very expensive.
16. When I was younger, I told everyone I wanted to be a veterinarian and live on a horse ranch outside of Helena, Montana.
