10 things you might not know about me


One thing I want to do here on my blog is be completely transparent. I want this to be a place I can share my opinions and my life freely and hopefully it will help at least one person. Some things might be personal to me that I have shared with very few but I feel that I shouldn’t need to hide them here.

  1. I LOVE COWS!! We live out in farm land and I pass by quite a few pieces of land that have dozens and dozens of cows on them. Eventually I would start saying hi to them when I would drive by them to and from work then a few weeks after that I started to name them, yes you read that right. A while back, I was able to finally meet some calves face to face. I probably could have stayed all day. Josh ended up having to push me away from the pen because I had been petting them for over 15 minutes and the actual kids wanted a turn.
  2. To keep the animal theme going, something I want to do when we retire is own enough land to have our own small farm. Not a huge one like Joanna and Chip Gaines but a few pigs, cows, maybe goats and of course chickens. I would like it to happen before we retire but Josh says it’s not going to happen. We will see who ends up winning this battle.
  3. I love to bargain shop. I’m not one of those crazy ladies who has a big binder filled with coupons and is holding up the register for 15 minutes. But I do love a deal and when I find one, I tell everyone!! Why pay full price when you don’t have to!?
  4. I still have no clue what I want to do when I grow up. Is that a thing? Can I still grow up even though I’m almost 24? I went to college for a year and a half with the intention of getting a degree in business but I just kept thinking what am I going to do with this degree once I have it? I stopped attending school and just focused on my job to see if I could turn it into a career. I now have been an administrative assistant for almost four years now and while it has been really great, I do feel like I need to decide what I want to do for the next 40 years.
  5. I love baking and cooking even though I’m not a pro by any means. Josh and I love to watch MasterChef and almost always after every episode we want to go cook whatever they just did.
  6. My dad is not my biological father. I know, shocker if you couldn’t tell from looking at us. (Total sarcasm). My biological father was in and out of my life in entire childhood and is now not a part of it and I’m completely okay with it. It hurt me so much when I was a kid that he was never there, always missed a dance recital or my baptism (which was super important to me, remember just looking around for him but he never came) but I eventually learned to stop expecting him to show up. The final straw for me and when learned was when he said he wasn’t coming to my wedding.  When my dad married my mom, they never forced me to call him dad or make me think that my biological father was being replaced. They respected me and let me do whatever felt right to me. I truly don’t recall a time that I didn’t call him dad. I’m so happy my dad stepped up and decided that I was his daughter, even though he didn’t have to be.
  7. I absolutely love ice cream! If I had to give up social media or ice cream, I would give up social media in a heartbeat. I’m not sure I can live without ice cream. Whoever invented it is a genius.
  8. I’m so afraid of spiders. Yes, I’m sure pretty much everyone is but mine is next level. When I was a teenager, I had this huge spider web in my doorway to my room. I was in my room and my mom wanted me to come look at it with her. I start to bawl because I didn’t want to cross it. She ended up having to drag me out of my room, there is a video to prove all of this. If I find a spider near me, I will jump and leave the room.
  9. Greece, Italy, Paris, Costa Rica are all on my travel bucket list. We hope to cross of Costa Rica in January!
  10. Josh and I have a plan for when we will have kids but we won’t be sharing it just to keep it a surprise for everyone, but it’s not for a while. We know we want them, just not right now. There is so much we still want to do together and things we want to accomplish before we start bringing kids in the mix. Yes, it’s a little selfish but I love that we have a choice and that we agree on it. Same reason why we waited 2 1/2 years to have our wedding because we wanted to accomplish things before then.
