I saw this a LONG time ago, but decided to finally do it.
Some of you know me pretty well, but for those of you that don't- I'll share a few fun facts ;)

That is my EXCITED face, after I passed my motorcycle class. Ridiculous. I know.

5 Words to Describe Myself
  • Hustler-  Yes, I am being for real.  Ask my friends and they will vouch.  I am constantly maximizing any situation and plotting my next move.  I told my husband that I was worried about not finding a future career, and he assured me that he is not worried because I am always scheming and it will eventually pay off.
  • JEW Frugal- My friends used to chant at me "Cheap-Cheap. Cheap-Cheap.",  which only made me more confident in my frugality.  To some people, frugality is a chore and leaves them wanting, but for me it is like a game to see how much I can save and very fulfilling in my bounty. (Don't get offended by the Jew comment either- my best friend is Jewish and she makes the joke more than I do!)
  • Honest if not to a fault I am never mean, however I am not a sugar-coat<er>  I make sure that I say things tactfully, so as to not be disregarded, but  I wanna know if I have a booger hanging out...don't you?  
  •  Dependent-  On my loving-oh-so-wonderful-I-don't-know-where-I'd-be-without-him-husband.  I was going to put independent because everyone wants to be independent and "strong", but then I realized that although I can fend for myself, I do work-contributing to our household, I do have a brain, yadda yadda yadda...I have been blessed with my best friend who completes me and because of him- I do not have to face the world alone.  It is not solely my burden to bare and I am extremely happy that  I have someone so wonderful to depend on and that I am "strong" enough to understand and accept that.
  • Klutzy-  I like to claim to be a "graceful" klutz, but it doesn't always seem that way.  I usually catch myself and manage to keep it in control more than I used to, but when things happen...all you can do is giggle along with everyone else...I've embraced it and moved on!

4 Favorite Foods
           Fruits, Vegetables, Meat and Dessert...not a good enough answer? DANG!  Then, I guess....
  • Benihana's Fried Rice
  • Anything Pizza oriented- Lately, my favorite is Old Chicago's Pizza Rolls
  • Sweet Potato Fries (and pretty much just fries in general)
  • All things Coconut! Green Curry, coconut water, and of course- COCONUT PB

3 Things I'm Proud I've Accomplished
  • Graduating college.
  • Finding and locking down the man of my dreams.
  • Surviving outside of Florida.  Never thought that would be possible.
This is my "Bring on the cold, COLORADO" face. 
I now have a cold-weather wardrobe, so I am ready!!

2 Favorite Workouts Favorite Pastimes
Although, I do enjoy Hot Yoga on occasion, I DO NOT like exercise enough to use it as my two #2's.

  • Any activity that involves my husband.  Cuddling, movie watching, cooking, date nights, traveling... heck- even chores are better as long as we do it together.  If I spent every moment with this man for the rest of my life, it still wouldn't be enough.  I guess it's a good thing I married him ;)
  • Relaxing.  Most of you probably wouldn't think of relaxing as a pastime, but I pretty much feel that when I'm not at work I should be relaxing.  Whether I am cuddled up watching a movie with Will, watching t.v. while blogging, traveling and enjoying myself, cooking a yummy new recipe or being what I call "productively lazy", I try to be relaxed in my state of mind.  I don't always accomplish this, but the most I can do is try.  There are many pastimes I like to partake in, but more importantly-  I want to feel relaxed while doing them.

1 Thing You Can Expect From This Blog

   Honesty and ingenuous intentions.   I may not win the "Blogger of The Year" award, but I will darn sure try to put my best foot forward and impart every bit of knowledge I have or learn in the process.  I'll also try not to bore you.  If I do, just smack me around a bit.  I don't mind ;)

Congrats on passing your class! Whoo Hoo!!!! And I can't believe you survived in the cold! I am a Southern California/Texas girl and I refuse to live anywhere with snow!!!! (unless that place is Paris, then I can compromise)

Meghan @ More from Meg said...

I am all about sweet potato anything lately! :) So yummy! I love your coat in your picture - I bet it wasn't fun having to wear that everywhere instead of flip flops :)

It's always fun to learn facts about the lovely person behind the blog. I love your five words to describe yourself! I'm such a huge klutz too!

& I love the "I do many things well, none of which generate income." Oh so true!

Mallory said...

Haha I'm loving that last picture! So true, I wish fun things generated income:)

And you're super adorable in your "cold weather gear". Glad you're surviving outside of the heat;)

Raven said...

see and all these facts are the reasons I LOVE YOU SO. Not to mention, stop being so damn gorgeous will you? Talk about making others feel bad about themselves...

CeCe @Frugalista Married said...

I love that E card-that's me to a tee! I'm with you on the Pizza-love it and always have. I'm super Frugal too! And I much prefer that word to cheap.

Rach @ This Italian Family said...

Oh my gracious, I am so glad you did this! We have so much more in common than I even knew! I am uber frugal, too and totally get teased about it by my friends. AND I always like to think of myself as ultra independent because I was raised with a lot of the feminist ideals, but I am totally dependent on my husband. I mean, yes, I work/provide income and can do things on my own, but I don't have to! And I LOVE it! :D And some day I am going to stay home with babies and it will be amazing. Also, I totally love to think that I'm super graceful, but I never have been. I walk into everything. Tables, walls, doors, etc... it's ridiculous. Not to mention dropping things all the time (my poor phone, haha) and falling flat on my face from time to time. Total klutz. Aaaaand, I absolutely love spending ridiculous amounts of time with my husband too. Even just running errands or cleaning the house. Everything is better with him. Love this post. :) OH! And I LOVE pizza! We are having it for dinner tonight in fact! Oookay, I am done writing a comment as long as your post now, haha!

Jean said...

haha- i am one to tell others they have a booger or something between their teeth.

love fries, too! love!!!

relaxing is a good thing. some ppl may call it lazy, i don't know what planet they fell from.

love your blog. you learn so much and you're so honest!

Nicole said...

Great answers and the phrase I use is I'm cheap not easy :) haha! Although it came back to bite me in the butt when my step-daughter told a gal at a store that when I got excited about sales.

Courtney B said...

Loved learning more about you! And I must admit... I LOVE how honest you are! I know that when you say something you MEAN it! I could come to you for advice on anything and know that you would give it to me straight :) Just how I like it!

Amanda said...

That was a really cool and fun way to get to know you! Maybe I'll try this out for a blog post soon :)
