It has been raining way too much in Seattle this winter. Yes, that is possible.
As I sit here on a rainy day thinking about my blog and how to engage people more, one thought that comes to mind is that I might not be sharing enough about myself on here. I have been so focused on all the tips/recipes/etc. that I haven’t said much about myself to help you all get to know me. The truth is I want you to know me and have fun following me, and I want to get to know you too!
So, I decided to come up with a list of fifteen fun facts that you would never know about me unless I told you. I hope you enjoy reading!
-I grew up on a dirt road in Upstate New York. I had pet chickens. My childhood was about as country as you can get.
-My husband and I had our first date on St. Patrick’s Day. This explains a lot about our relationship (at least in our twenties 🙂 )
-I moved to Washington when I was 17. I had saved money all summer long for my move by working at the local grocery store.
-I have a Pomeranian. She is a jealous little $hit and hates my kid.
-I love wine. Like, I LOVE WINE.
-One of my daughter’s first words was “tickle” when she was about 5 months old. She would try to “tickle” us all the time, before she could even walk to get to us. It was super cute.
-I work full time selling luxury boats/yachts for a company on Lake Washington. I love my job.
-I used to do sales in healthcare. I hated it 🙂
-I haven’t traveled enough. My husband promised me one big special trip before we have another kid, and I am still waiting 😉
-I played sports in high school as a joke because I was terrible. Our school was too small to have roster cuts.
-As a family, movie nights are our favorite. We love snuggling up on the couch and unwinding from the week with a movie together.
-I can’t speak Spanish, but I can understand it.
-My husband and I used to take a trip to a new snowboarding mountain every year for our anniversary. A tradition that has taken a break after having a kid, but we need to get back into.
-Our dream house is in the country with a vineyard.
-I don’t have a sweet tooth. When I bake, it is up to my husband to eat the good majority of what I made (poor guy).
