As a fun little "get to know you" post, I've decided to share 30 totally random fun facts about me!
My snack food of choice is Tostitos Hint of Lime Tortilla Chips. I could definitely eat an entire bag in one sitting.
I can solve a Rubik's Cube. At one point I could do a 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, 5x5, and triangle.
I prefer to drink hot coffee all year long, no matter the temperature outside.
I'm left handed, which still surprises people who I've known for a long time.
I can play the piano and flute. I played flute in either a band or orchestra for 11 years straight.
I attended public school for K-8th grade, then transferred to a private Christian high school.
I have always been a Chicago Cubs fan. Baseball is one of the few sports I actually enjoy watching, and it was SUPER exciting to finally watch them win a World Series in 2016!
October is my favorite month of the year (and it also happens to be the month I was born in).
For our first date, my husband and I took the train to Downtown Chicago and went to the Art Institute. It's still one of our favorite date locations!
I really love the thrill of roller coasters - the bigger the better! I would love to go to Cedar Point someday!
My favorite ice cream flavor is mint chocolate chip.
I had my first son when I was 22 years old. Now I have 2 beautiful little boys that keep me busy!
I've been gluten free for 6 years now.
I prefer watching TV shows to movies, and I will never get tired of rewatching Friends and The Office.
One summer my cousin and I decided to roller blade the length of a marathon. I still love roller blading, but the crazy hills in Colorado make it a little more challenging!
I have to sleep with a comforter and socks, no matter the temperature.
My favorite place I've ever traveled is Italy.
I always buy a postcard from the places I travel. They're such a cheap, small souvenir!
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups are my weakness. Pair it with a hot cup of coffee and it's a match made in Heaven.
I'm the oldest of two kids, and I'm definitely a stereotypical type-A firstborn child.
My sister and I were born 23 months apart, and so were my sons! It's funny to me that the age gap is almost exactly the same (only a 4-day difference).
In 2017, I presented a paper I wrote during my undergrad at the National Communication Association's annual convention.
I hate running, but I was on the track team for three years in junior high and high school.
I've worn glasses or contacts since I was 8 years old.
I love colored pens and markers, and I'm sure I have too many (or maybe never enough?)
I've had braces twice - it was miserable at the time, but now I'm grateful to have straight teeth!
I don't really like to drive.
The first time I visited Colorado I was only 6, but even then I knew I wanted to live there someday! We have now lived in Colorado for (almost) 3 years!
I love to hike, and I hope to visit as many National Parks as I can!
I'm a list maker. I have notes everywhere for everything. I find that writing everything down helps "declutter" my mind.
I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed writing it, and that it gives you a little more insight into the person behind the artwork and products you see! Do we have anything in common? Let me know!
