11 Random Facts About Me
-My favorite color is purple. It has not always been purple, but it has been for the past few years.
-The only way that I like it eat mangoes is dried. I LOVE dried mangoes!
-My favorite fighting game is Mortal Kombat. Say what you will, but I really learned to play video games by playing Mortal Kombat on the Sega Genesis and that is where my loyalty shall remain. I also enjoy Street Fighter and Soul Caliber. But my first love, is Mortal Kombat. 🙂
-I love to dress up. Most people don’t know this because I rarely get the chance or have an occasion that calls for dressing up. I think it’s so much fun to find a cute dress, or another sort of outfit, and go out. When I feel like I look good it makes me feel good, which helps me have more fun wherever I’m at.
-I have written a children’s book. It isn’t published or anything, but it would be amazing if I could publish it one day. I’ve looked into it and it takes a lot of time, work, and money that I just don’t have right now to dedicate to maybe finding someone who might publish it. I think it’s great, of course. Others who have seen it seem to enjoy it, especially children. I would love the opportunity to write more children’s books. But again, time, work, and money that I just don’t currently have!
-I did a small amount of modeling in the past. And when I say small, I mean small. But the couple photo shoots that I did were amazing. If I had the body/height, I’d LOVE to be a wedding dress model. I had SO much fun trying on dresses, and not to toot my own horn but, they all looked great on me! I also think it would be WAY fun to help model in a styled shoot. *cough cough* to all my photographer friends….let’s make this one happen!!
-I played the flute….for about 2 months! Apparently, it was not something I excelled at. I quit and joined chorus instead of band, acted in a couple of plays, and found that I belonged on the stage, rather than below it!
-I do not wear any face make-up. This is a shocker for some people, but I don’t even OWN concealer! Now, I hope this will change soon, as I’ve decided to make it a point to look the way I want to feel. I want to feel put together and confident. If I look that way, I’ll be more ready to feel that way. So I’ve decided to enlist a lady friend to go make-up shopping with me and get myself all dolled up on an…almost…daily basis.
-I absolutely love event planning. I remember in middle school a friend and I would always plan our little pool parties and hang outs. We’d write down a guest list, what we planned to do, and what food and drinks we planned to serve. Since then, I’ve enjoyed making lists and throwing parties. And now with my wedding planning, I, along with my mom, get to plan the ultimate party! I am having such a fantastic time learning about the process and planning everything having to do with this wedding. It’s a lot of work but SO much fun!
-I do not want a home that is two stories. Growing up, I lived in a one story home and I always thought that I just had to have a home with stairs. But after living in a townhouse I’ve changed my mind. I HATE that I have to go upstairs to use the bathroom and go to bed. Call it lazy, but I just want to wander down the hallway and crash in bed when I’m exhausted after a long day. I don’t want to have to exert what tiny bit of energy I have left to climb upstairs and drag myself into bed.
-I love Bath and Body Works. I get all of my shower gels there. I also can’t pass up a 2 for $20 sale on their candles. I have more lotion than I think I can EVER use. Although, I don’t use their body sprays. I’m a Victoria’s Secret girl when it comes to perfume.
11 Questions from Not So Cli-Shea
1. Do you have any tattoos? If so, what? If not, want any? What would it be?
I have 2 tattoos. One is of a horseshoe with a 13 in the middle and some roses around it. My dad has the horseshoe and 13 so that was for him. I also have a penguin reading a book because, well, I love reading and penguins.
2. What is your favorite birthday memory?
Every year for my birthday we go to the LA County Fair. Every year, my favorite part is feeding the goats. I look forward to it for at least a month. That has to be my favorite, every time.
3. Broken any bones or gotten stitches? If so, how?
I fractured my foot. I was….skipping. Yes, skipping. I didn’t see a hole and landed in it and there went my foot.
4. What song would you say best describes you? Why?
Oh gosh this is hard. Maybe “Turn Me On” by Norah Jones. Not because of the obvious, however. For me, it seems like I’m always waiting for something to happen, someone to get here, etc. And that song is mostly saying how she’s waiting for him to come home and …well…get it on. So it’s the waiting aspect that I really connect with.
5. What is your go-to candy?
Reese’s or Twix…but they’re both even better when refrigerated!
6. What’s your favorite job you’ve ever had?
I really enjoyed working with my mom at her office, mostly because it was so easy! I also enjoyed tutoring. It was difficult at times, but rewarding.
7. When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A robot! No seriously.
8. What is the first thing you would save in a fire?
Assuming I’m home alone and don’t have to drag my fiance out of the house, my teddy bear. It sounds lame, but this bear is older than me and I would be devastated if I didn’t have him.
9. Where is your dream vacation spot?
There are so many places that I want to go, but Italy is definitely at the top of my list.
10. What is your vice?
I procrastinate important things. Things that seem unimportant are things that I’ll get done first, but the things I know I really need to get done, I’ll save til the last minute. I suppose this doesn’t help with my stress issues!
11. Who was your childhood celebrity “crush”?
There were so many! Jonathan Taylor Thomas was probably one of the first. Then it moved on to Justin Timberlake [still is!!].
