30 Week Blog Challenge – Week 1–Fifteen Facts About Yourself

Week 1: A recent picture and 15 facts about yourself.

1. I love fashion, shopping and makeup; although I've recently been re-prioritizing my wardrobe and have really pared down my collection.

2. As much as I love being a girly-girl, above all I am a nerd.

3. I hardly ever watch TV, the exception being a couple of TV shows.

4. Even though I'm a nerd, I love sports. Specifically, NASCAR and NFL football.

5. I'm a HUGE anglophile and want to visit England in the worst way.

6. Between married life and a several health issues, I've manged to put on more weight than I care to think about. That in itself wouldn't be so bad except now my wedding set doesn't fit. I know I could get them re-sized, but to me that feels like defeat and accepting the weight gain.

7. My wedding dress is hanging in my closet and I have no idea what to do with it.

8. I don't want kids and don't plan on having any, ever. It's not that I don't like kids, they just aren't for me. Thankfully my husband has been very supportive in this and we plan on being the BEST and COOLEST aunt and uncle ever!

9. I don't know how to drive a stick-shift.

10. Some of the things that make up my nerdy-ness: Disney, Doctor Who, Marvel, Glee, Lord of the Rings, and Harry Potter

11. I was engaged to be married to my high school boyfriend (obviously that didn't work out).

12. When my (future) husband and I first started dating, he had known who I was for almost six months before I knew who he was.

13. I was a boy bander in high school, but only Backstreet Boys and *NSync.

14. I was in marching band as a color guard member.

15. I've been on national television due to being in color guard.

A huge thanks to my pal Marie over at Mom Gets Real for the challenge!


  1. My wedding dress is hanging in my closet too. I'm hoping to re-wear it for a photo shoot one day. I'm not sure if I'll ever be wedding-day-in-shape again so it may need to be altered a bit. lol

    1. Yeah I'm hoping to re-wear it for when we have a vow renewal (one less expense!) but I feel bad it's just hanging there. I'm lucky I got to wear it twice already but still....
