Woot Woot! I made it to 100 posts! So exciting. I started this blog about a year and a half ago and I never really thought I would keep up with it this long, but here I am!
I thought I would “celebrate” by giving you ten pieces of information about me that you probably don’t know. Here goes!
1. I have no middle name. My parents thought that my sisters and I had long enough first names and our last name was ridiculously long, so they just gave us first and last names. My brother got the short end of the stick and has two middle names.
2. I was briefly in culinary school. I love to cook and I was floundering in college so I started in a culinary program. I worked for about 6 months as a butcher at my college and I loved it so much. There is something crazy powerful about being a woman and being a butcher. Probably the most fun job I have ever had. I made it through the meat and dairy rotation of the culinary school before I decided I didn’t really want to cook for other people. I just really like to cook for people I love.
3. I have a degree in event management. I am an event and wedding planner, so I may be one of the few people in the world who have actually gone into their intended field. I did, however, change my major when I was a junior in college and I was already working as an event coordinator, so I kind of cheated.
4. I am an athlete. I played basketball and golf in high school, basketball in college (briefly) and after college I played basketball and softball in local leagues. I love sports and I miss being able to play, but I just don’t have the time anymore. Plus I am waaaay out of shape.
5. M’s real name is Matt. I’ll probably never type it again cause I like to protect his privacy whenever possible. He’s the best…
6. I am a middle child. Technically I share the middle child spot with my sister, but I truly got the middle child treatment, whereas my sister did not. If we end up having three children, you better believe I will make sure that the middle child gets lots of attention and love.
7. I was married once before I married M. It was a truly awful experience and someday I will write about it. Shudder.
8. I feel like a child most of the time. I keep waiting for that moment where I will feel like a grown up and it just never comes. I honestly can’t believe that I am 31. I certainly don’t feel like I am 31.
9. I live in Oregon. I love it here and I will probably never live anywhere else. It’s beautiful, I love the rain, and we have no sales tax. Seriously, if you’ve never been to Oregon, you should. It is amazing.
10. I am painfully shy in real life. I have a really hard time speaking to new people and I hate being in situations where I don’t know anybody. It is almost to the point of petrifying fear. I much prefer to stay home and be with M and Arlie.
Well there you have it. I’ll be back to my regular posts tomorrow. 🙂
