10 Random Facts About Me

Hey, guys!  I thought it would be a good idea to give you a glimpse into what makes me tick (beyond makeup, clothes, and accessories, of course!).  Here are 10, short random facts about me that I will help you get to know me better.  You can also get a more in depth picture of my life in my previous post 50 Things that Make Me Happy.

  1. I swam competitively from age 8 through high school. swimming pool

2.  Even though I am not currently practicing, I will always be a 5th grade teacher at heart. apple and books

3.  I’ve been to Maui (on my honeymoon), St. Lucia, and The Bahamas (twice).  There is nothing quite like a beach vacation.

8.  Taylor Swift is my favorite female artist, but I have yet to see her in concert

9.  I pretty much have to eat a donut or something similar (coffee cake) for breakfast every morning, along with coffee.

10.  I have a bad habit of staying up too late doing nothing important, just to have some quiet time to myself.  I wake up each morning telling myself I will go to bed sooner that night.  It never happens.
