Hey y'all! Happy Birthday to me! To celebrate my thirty second birthday, I'm sharing my current favorite outfit (I've literally been living in this sweater lately) and thirty two things you may or may not know about me! This list is really in no particular order of importance and it's random but I am too so it's perfect for me, lol. I hope you enjoy getting to know me a little bit better!

1. I started this blog back in 2009 when I was pregnant with my oldest daughter. I just started it as a way to document my pregnancy. 

2. My favorite color has always been pink. If there's a pink option, it's mine!

3. I have a strange, irrational fear of whales. I don't know what it is but they freak me out! Sea World was an awful experience for me.

4. Sweets are one of my weaknesses, especially sour candy. Sour Patch kids are my favorite and I love a slice of cheesecake!

5. I mostly only listen to Christian music and country music. My kids only know two genres of music: Jesus songs and cowboy songs, lol. 

6. I have been married to my husband since 2008. We will celebrate 10 years of marriage in 2018!

7. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (also in 2008) with a degree in Elementary Education.

8. I have only traveled out of the country once. My husband and I went to the Dominican Republic for our honeymoon.

9. My family owns their own small business of six convenience stores. I worked at one of them throughout college.

10. I don't like surprises. They stress me out. 

11. My husband and I have been together (officially) since November of 2006. He's my best friend!

12. My top places to visit on my bucket list are Italy, Greece, and Hawaii.

13. I have to take at least one trip to the mountains every fall. I love to see the gorgeous colors and the mountain air is just good for the soul.

14. I bought the second wedding dress I tried on. It didn't even fit me and I had to have it tailored down three sizes since it was the only one available. I just knew it was the one!

15. I'm an extroverted introvert which basically means that I'm outgoing when I feel like it, lol. 

16. I taught third grade for four years. I resigned from my position to spend more time at home with my children when I had my second daughter.

17. I serve in the nursery monthly at my church (that's where I get my baby fix) and I also serve twice a month in the tech booth. I run the computer which basically means I run videos, lyrics, and sermon notes. 

18. I have lived in North Carolina all of my life.

19. Flowers make me ridiculously happy. Especially if they are pink!

20.  I worked at a grocery store when I was in high school and I loved it. Scanning groceries was my favorite. Yes, I'm weird!

21. I'm the PTO president and this is my third year serving on the PTO board at my girls' school.

22. I currently work at a non-profit afterschool enrichment program as the lead STEM teacher. I love my job and my part-time schedule.

23. The beach is my happy place. I could literally sit on the beach all day long and be 100% content.

24. I began my "fashion blogging" with thrifted outfits that I put together from local thrift stores and the Goodwill.

25. The first place Josh and I went together was Woods of Terror (a haunted trail) and he proposed at the same place almost exactly one year later. 

26. I have two brothers and I'm the youngest.

27. I have no self control when it comes to chips and salsa or Chick-Fil-A waffle fries. I need all of the Chick-Fil-A sauce!

28. My favorite holiday is Christmas but I can't get excited about it until at least November 15 (the day after my birthday).

29. My husband painted our front door pink this past August and I think it's the best home improvement we have ever made.

30. I'm one-fourth Cherokee and my kids are one-fourth Puerto Rican.

31. I always wanted to be a girl mom. It was literally my dream to have two little girls! The names Julianna and Olivia were actually never on my list for potential names but they fit my girls perfectly.

32. We are surprising our daughters with a week long Disney vacation for Christmas and I am bursting at the seams with excitement! Disney is one of my absolute favorite places to go and I cannot wait to take my girls there again!
