#1. I love and share my life with the most wonderful, perfect man for me.
It's weird to think that less than 3 years ago we didn't know each other-it doesn't seem possible. When I'm with Matty I always think, "Oh. So this is how it is supposed to be." We just moved to Dayton, Ohio from Lexington, Kentucky so he could go to law school. I'm very proud of him. :)
We met in a bar...our favorite bar...through friends, though. Quit judging me. I didn't know he was interested in me and I wasn't really looking to find anyone. Then he just kinda started popping up everywhere I was. Stalker.
I loved it.
On our first real date we carved pumpkins (his idea). He didn't even know about my over-the-top obsession with fall and Halloween then. The picture above is of us a year later.
We tend to take over any and every dance floor. "What? We're the only ones out here? Oh well."
We love going on adventures together.
And he never fails to make me laugh. Like, every day.
We have a precious shih-tzu, named Nix. We love her. She's deathly afraid of cameras So this picture is close to miraculous.
#2 I have the best sister evarrrr, and family, too.
This is Maggie. Love her. Visit her awesome blog here.
My parents, with a lot of help from my grannies, raised my sister and me. I love them very much.
#3 I went to a small liberal arts college where I met the most amazing, best friends in the world.
Even though we don't live together anymore or even live close to each other anymore (for most of us)...I think of them often. Getting together every now and then is so great.
The Alpha Chi chapter of Sigma Kappa sorority (and other Greek organizations...) was my gateway to meeting and becoming truly great friends with the people I love so much.
Ahhhh Sigma K! (what?)
#4 I love teaching kindergarten.
picture found here. (I need to make those letters!!)
Wish I could share some of the funniest, sweetest pictures you've ever seen in your life of my munchkins, but I don't think their parents would appreciate it. I'm so lucky to have a job I really love.
#5 I've never been athletic. I loved being in band.
(This is not our band. I don't have too many pictures-or I can't find them)
This sweet little part of my life is one that often got me made fun of in college (and still does, really). I don't care. For some reason, at my tiny little high school, band was cool. All my friends were in it. (I know that doesn't make you believe me when I say it was cool, but whatever. It was.)
I was in marching, concert, and pep band in high school and continued on with concert and pep in college (for scholarship reasons, mostly). In high school, I lived for marching band. I was the drum major (field commander, whatever) for 2 years, I played clarinet for the others, and loved every minute. If my future children say, "Mom, I don't want to play football/be a cheerleader...Can I be in the band?" I will be absolutely ecstatic.
#6 I very rarely wear a different color nail polish other than red. And all my friends laugh at me for having 30 shades of the "same" color.
I googled "red nails" and came up with this picture from this blog by a girl who seems to have the same problem as me. ha.
#7 I'm really excited to be a mom.
No, not today. Not tomorrow, or even in the next few years. And thank goodness for that. But someday. And I can't wait.
my mom and me.
Hope you enjoyed these tidbits of my life. This was a fun post to write.
Now back to crafts.
Will post soon.
