Random Wednesday!

Happy hump day! Hopefully for all of you who may be drowning in work (me), that you can see the light at the end of the tunnel, that is Friday. I'm ready for the weekend already. Then again, when am I not??

ANYWAY! Thought I would let you guys know that I am SO appreciative of all of you who keep coming back to read my little corner of the internet on a daily basis. It took me for EVER to even get the nerve to make my own blog, because I honestly thought  "who would want to read what I have to say?!" and as it turns out -- a lot of you were in the same boat before you took the plunge.

I have a few friends I've met over this blog-land that I consider my real friends. If you ever talk to a non-blogger about your "blogger friends", its somewhat like explaining to them what your imaginary friend is like from 2nd grade. My family probably thinks I'm crazy... but I do have plans to meet some of you this year, and I cannot wait!

Call me crazy, but I get so giddy every time I get a new follower, because I genuinely want to get to know you, and not only keep you as a reader, but make a new friend, too!

So here are some (you guessed it) random facts about myself;

-Camera in hand, I kiiiind of feel like I can take on the world
 -I absolutely hate cottage cheese.
-Caleb and I dream of going on an African safari (can you say 5 year anniversary trip!?)
-My uncle baptized me on my 18th birthday, I am so thankful for him.

-I work in finance, but surprisingly hate math. Doesn't mean I hate my job, I surprisingly love it! My job is just more in the stock market and retirement planning than math (thank goodness).
-Caleb and I just finished day 10 of Insanity last night. We are 1/6 of the way there! WOO!
-I could drink my weight in sweet tea. No, I'm not southern.
-Same with Mountain Dew, you with me soulmate?
-When I feel cute at work, I work better.
-I believe in wearing dresses all year round.
-My go-to appetizer is spinach and artichoke dip. Or warm crab dip... yummm.
-I suck at doing my own hair. Seriously, I can barely curl it.
-My nails are painted probably 10 times a year. If I'm lucky.
-I'm a girly girl, but I love all things sports.
-I think bow ties are cool.
-My MOH returns for Spring Break from her last semester of college Friday. YAY!! Can't wait to see her.

-Back in high school (and probably once a year...) I eat marshmallow fluff straight out of the jar.
-I SO badly want to go on the show Amazing Race. Caleb won't do it, though. Erin, you down? ;)
-Bubble baths are my favorite things ever.
-I used to work at Bath & Body Works. I miss my Victoria's Secret discount every day.
-My faith has never been stronger.
-I've never been out of the country.
-I am obsessed with Target...but, who isn't?
Whewww.... that was fun. I know, you're dying to know more.... ;)

That's what I like to call a Random Wednesday!
Thanks Shanna!

  11. cottage cheese is the worst! I don't eat cheese, but I'll soemtimes eat it in spinach artichoke dip. It's just SO good. I used to never paint my nails, but now I'm loving getting into nail polish.

  12. Eww...cottage cheese is disgusting. Totally agree.

    I can't imagine what life would be like if you didn't start a blog. Ahhhh!!!

    I didn't know you worked at Bath and Body. (I wish you still did so *I* could get a discount) :-)

    Talk Caleb in to doing Amazing Race with you!!! Do you vote on that show? i don't even know?

  13. i can't help but notice the amelia church of christ shirts. i'm a coc going girl over here. also, eating one's weight in spinach and artichoke dip sounds like heaven :)

  14. you cannot love Mt Dew and sweet tea with out being a little southern, so I'll extend my card out to you for an honorary southern membership.

  15. bloggy friends are the best and I agree people think a wack-o when I talk about them! Especially ones I have yet to meet!

    I agree about a camera in hand, even though lately little Miss Diva Breanna doesn't like me taking her pictures!

    oooooh love my some sweet tea! I think every woman is Target obsessed! ;)

    Cari (Adventures of the Roberts)

  16. Loved these facts about you. I always talk about doing Amazing Race too, but I'm terrible with directions and a map so my partner would need to be good at that or we'd be in trouble. Haha.

  17. Heck yes to bow ties!! My husband actually wore one on our wedding day. Some people called it "goofy," but I thought it was dead sexy...and different!

  18. This was such a fun post! I suck at doing my own hair too ha ha! I thank God it's naturally curly every day! I don't know how to use a curling iron;) I've never been out of the country either!

    Happy Wednesday and hopefully Friday come quick for you:)

  19. I totally agree in feeling good when I look cute! Someone asked me just this week why I'm always so cute for class but I'm so much more motivated that way! New follower here, and I'm loving your blog :)

  20. Love random facts, and you!! I hope I'm one of the blogger loves you're planning to meet this year! Because I'm DEFINITELY meeting you, and if you weren't on the same boat that would just be awkward.


Thanks for your comments, I read and respond to every single one of them! :) Excited to get to know you!
