Happy Friday friends! We finally got a break in the heat here in Kansas, but sadly the cooler weather is accompanied by rain and humidity!
I’ve got a busy day today and one of the things I’ve got going is a meeting over at Kendra Scott about a fun upcoming event we are collaborating with next Wednesday night here in Wichita! They are releasing their new charm collection (I’ve seen a sneak peek and it looks gorgeous!). I’m going over there today to take a look at the new goodies, and I’ll let you know what I think! The release of the new collection will be next Wednesday and the event we are hosting is from 4:00-7:00. I’m enclosing the invitation down below! Come on your own or grab a girlfriend and make your own charm bracelet and enjoy some yummy snacks!
For today, I thought I would pass along a few getting to know you things:
- I didn’t own my first dog until I was 30 years old which is hard to believe since I am obsessed with my 3 fur babies! If something ever happens to Charlie, Gracie or Lulu you will have to put me in a padded room because I will lose my mind.
- The “unnamed child” and I have an incredibly close relationship which I think is my proudest achievement. Even when she was going through the ages 12-14 when I thought one of us wasn’t going to make it out alive she still always confided in me and let me in. Now she’s 20 years old and finishing up college and having she is still living at home, much to her dismay, and as much as I gripe about her leaving her crap all over the house deep down I’m still glad she’s at home.
- Topher and I got married young. Young as in 21 and 22. We were dirt poor and not long after had a baby on the way so times were hard, but 22 years later we’re still here and looking forward to growing old together!
- As much as I love having a lifestyle blog, my dream would be for Topher to quit his job and we could be travel bloggers! We both have such a love for travel, but his pesky 9-5 job (that reliably pays for food, shelter and insurance) gets in the way! Maybe someday when he retires!
- I am a total introvert! I do fine in social situations, but when it comes to deciding between having a night on the town with friends or a Friday night with just the two of us catching up on America’s Got Talent, the latter almost always wins!
- I have terrible insomnia. I had a medical issue that arose 12 years ago (that I will get into more someday) and ever since then my sleep has been rough! There are so many times where Topher is up going to the gym at 5 am, and I am still laying on the couch reading a book or watching tv.
- I have watched Grey’s Anatomy all the way through (yes all seasons) 3 times! I also have watched all of Hart of Dixie and Gilmore Girls twice. Yes that’s a lot of tv, but the majority of the time it’s just on in the background while I am working but there are certain episodes (like where Denny dies) where I have to stop what I’m doing and watch the whole show.
- I don’t mind cooking but I can’t stand doing dishes. Topher and I have a deal, I cook he does dishes.
- I can’t handle sleeping in hotel beds with the sheets all tucked in. I feel like I’m trapped in a straight jacket. The first thing I do when I get to a hotel is untuck the sheets.
- I have to have my feet sticking out of the covers when I sleep even in the winter. I might tuck them in a couple of times during the night to warm them back up but they always end up back where they started!
That’s all of the weird stuff about me for today! Can any of you relate? Please tell me a weird fact about you in the comments down below so I don’t feel so alone!
