How Well Do You Know Me?


Natasha over at Schue Love did an open tag yesterday and I thought it would be fun to join in! As much as I want to be an open book on here; I feel like sometimes I don't share a lot about me. Because of that, here are some fun facts about me... :)

Eleven Fun Facts About Me
1. I went to school for English Education, but have also graduated from a Makeup Academy and went through the Police Academy in 2009. The best part? Currently I am getting certified in Interior Design. I think I will forever be a student because I absolutely love learning.

2.  Michael and I planned our first date on a Tuesday evening. Surprisingly enough, he was my second date that day. He never lets me live down the fact that I saved the best for last! :)

3. I have had my baby names picked out for as long as I can remember. I guess I picked well because Michael actually likes them!!

4. I have a birthmark on the tip of my nose. My dad used to call me his "little brownnoser" when I was little...

5. I change my hair color with the seasons. In the Fall/Winter I tend to be brunette and in the Spring/Summer I am usually a blonde. Whenever I go brunette Michael always whines "Where did my blonde wife go??" It's too funny!

6. I am a total bookworm and refuse to jump on the kindle bandwagon. There is just something about having a physical book in my hands...

7. I have gone through my closet in the last 6 months and got rid of everything that didn't fit or I didn't love. It is so nice to walk into my closet and know I want to wear absolutely everything in it!

8. I am allergic to spiders and Morphine...neither of which was fun finding out about.

9. I have a photo of my cat, his collar and a cedar box filled with his ashes in the butler's pantry. Yes, I am one of those people. Haha.

10. I graduated from high school early and went to junior college while all of my friends were still in high school. Even though I wasn't there every day, I still got to go to prom, the senior picnic and walk with my class at graduation.

11. I am absolutely OBSESSED with The Real Housewives of New Jersey. I was a giddy school girl when I realized the season was starting again. It's sad, I know, but I love it. Please don't judge....

Ten Questions...Answered
1. What is your profession? I am an HR Manager/ Admin Assistant for a BioEnergy company. I love my job and really love my co-workers. I was very blessed when I joined their team.

2. How would you describe your style? The 3 C's. Casual, Classic and Comfortable. I am not as into the trends as I was in high school/college. I would rather spend sixty dollars on a shirt that will last me a few years versus thirty on one I can only wear one season.

3. What is one make-up product that you can not live without? Eyeliner. I seriously look dead without it...

4. If you could be besties with one celebrity, who would it be? Jennifer Love Hewitt. I don't know what it is about her, but every show she's on I am/was obsessed with. I was seriously devastated when Ghost Whisperer ended too!

5. What is your dream vacation? I want to start at one continent (North America would be the most likely) and hit all 7 of them before them before I came home. I think that would be the coolest experience ever!

6. What magazines do you subscribe to? Flea Market Finds and People. I think I buy like 5 others at the supermarket though...

7. If you could have a special talent (that you don't currently have) what would it be? I would want to sew/knit. I have a few friends that do and I am always amazed with what they are able to create.

8. What is your favorite breakfast food? Hands down, hashbrowns. I could eat them morning, noon and night.

9. If you could do anything, what is your dream job? I want to own my own vintage/country cottage boutique. Don't laugh...but kind of like the one on Ghost Whisperer. :)

10. What is the best piece of advice you've ever received, and who gave it to you? You create you. Only you are in charge of whether or not you are happy. You are in charge of what you accomplish in life. You are in charge of you. Don't rely on others to fulfill you because at the end of the day, only you defines who you are. It was part of a poem we chose to have recited at our wedding and I have officially made it my new motto in life.
