Girl Behind The Blog

Here I am sitting at my computer a little after midnight, wanting to share a post with you, but not really feeling what I had planned for today.  Let's do something spontaneous and have a "Get To Know You" post...or Girl Behind The Blog as I like to call it.  This totally goes both ways though.  I know I'm not that exciting.  I would love to know about you as well, so feel free to leave your list in the comments below!




Here's a few fun facts about me (the girl behind the blog.  Are you sick of hearing me say that yet? Well, I'm not.  It'll probably be in here a couple more times)





1.  I was born and raised in Rochester, NY.  Cold, snowy, and cloudy 8 months out of the year.  I left as soon as I could.

2.  I have a passion for travel, daydreaming, and food.  Specifically carbs...and sugar...and cheese....am I getting off topic?

3.  I can write with my toes.  Exactly what it sounds like.

4.  I used to be a professional poker player.  So long as by professional you mean, that was my only source of income for a while....not that I was on TV or anything.  Let's not get carried away.

5.  I used to be an international flight attendant.  So long as by international we mean, only flying to London multiple times- for a job that lasted like 6 months.  Then the company went under.  It was fun while it lasted though!

6.  My favorite color is green.  Come on, you were dying to know

7.  I lived in Rochester, NY, Providence, RI, High Point, NC, Las Vegas Nevada, Atlanta, GA, Hilton Head Island, SC...and London, England.  (Can we throw London in there just to sound cool?  I mean, I did stay in the same hotel every time I went.  That counts right? Judges??  Judges?  It Counts!)  Some places longer than others.

8.  I love action and horror/suspense movies.  Sci Fi and I don't get along. You can keep your aliens and space ships.

9.  I am afraid of balloons.  Ok, not all balloons, but the ones with string that people tie to a chair or something.  I know...it's crazy.  I still don't like it.  Or the strings that are on ceiling fans for that matter.

10.  While we're on fears- Please don't touch my jaw.  Why would you?  I don't know, but people do more often than you think.  Have you ever had your jaw dislodge and then you can't shut it for a while?  Scariest thing ever.  Scarred me for life.  Twice.  Did I get in a fist fight?  No.  Did I sky dive and break my jaw?  No...I yawned.  Yes, very exciting.  I yawned, my jaw dislodged, and I couldn't open or shut it.  Twice.  Now let's never speak of this again, lol.

11. While I'm embarrassing myself, do you want another random fact?  I once singed my nose hairs.   You know with fire.  I'm a huge pyromaniac.  Or not.  I was smelling a candle....apparently a little too closely.  Go ahead and laugh.  Have you ever heard your nose hairs sizzle before?  Uggggg.  Fire in my nose, Fire in my nose!  Anyways...

12. I usually change houses every year.  Even if we stay in the same city, we still usually move houses.  I like change, what can I say.

13.  Speaking of we- I am married and have a 5 year old little boy- who thinks it is so much fun to move and always asks me when "so and so" are moving to a new house.  "Honey, most people don't like to change houses as much as we do"

14. I am an introvert.  

15.  I believe everything happens for a reason and that you should always have a dream to chase.


Ok, enough about me.  Let me hear about you!

Girl Behind The Blog (there, I had to do it one last time, since I told you I would.)  Better known as Kelly.

  7. I enjoyed reading this, funny and it's fun getting to know you! Thank you for sharing. I'm living the crazy mom life with two little boys, like today I ended up with two cups of coffee going at the same time - unintentionally so I blame mommy brain.

    1. Hi Erin! Haha...You can totally blame that on mommy brain. It's probably better to have 2 cups going anyway. I can never seem to get through a cup of coffee while it's still hot!

    1. Hi Nikki! I may have taken some grown men for their money ;) lol. My husband did it as well. We were a bit obsessed with poker for a while pre kids, learning all we could, etc. We used to play on the computer back when it was legal, and moved to Vegas for a couple years to play!
