it is with my pleasure, i introduce to you, ME!

I figured a way to start this blog is to tell you all a little about me. Remember back in middle school all the chain e-mails with long lists of questions/fill ins you had to copy and paste to a new e-mail and answer about yourself then send back? Well, I'll imitate that in this post!

*College Attended? University of Kentucky

*Career: Nurse. I work in the Neurosurgical ICU at the University of Kentucky Hospital. Our patient population has any type of brain injury from brain tumors to aneurysms to trauma. I have learned so much {that is NOT taught in nursing school,} and I have a new outlook on life and how I would {not} want to live. I've seen so many sad, depressing cases, which gives me a an appreciation for the life I have and know I am so blessed. I also have learned it can be taken away in a blink of an eye.

*Siblings? One sister, Emily. She is four years younger than me and completely opposite of me. I think we have grown closer, and started getting along more when she went to college. We had a lot more in common at that point in our lives and could/can talk about stuff without creating an argument! She is so funny, smart, a great friend, and pretty much amazing. {That's for you Em, since you always ask if I tell people how amazing you are! So, I did!} This is us {a surprise gift taken for our parents this past Christmas by my cousin's husband (so he's now my cousin too!)}

*Favorite Color? Pink and Green. I wear more pink. And if you have been in my house you know I have a kitchen this color:

And I have a green couch!

*Right or Left handed? RIGHT! Bad signature though

*Favorite Music? I go from one end of the spectrum to the other. Country<--->Rap. 

*Favorite Movie? I don't think I have a favorite, but this might be. 
Kate Hudson is soo funny! I love her! I think she might be a little crazy in real life, but I still love watching her in movies! 
I also love a good intense thriller movie. Basically, I'll watch and enjoy anything EXCEPT weird Sci-Fi stuff.

*Political Affiliation? Very Conservative. 

*Coke or Pepsi: Neither. No carbonated beverages for this girl. I like sweet tea, water, juices.

*Religious Views? I have grown up in Church of Christ. I believe Jesus died for our sins and is coming back one day. I believe God has a plan for my/our lives and I have faith He is going to lead me in the direction He wants me. I have struggled lately with making myself get up and go to church on Sunday morning with my family. I work nights, so I use the excuses, "I can't get up early", or "I worked last night." I want stop making excuses!

*Pets? My child: Stella. She is a 5 1/2 lb. Toy Poodle and just turned 1 this past Halloween! You will definitely see more of her! Here's a few pics of the princess: 

*Favorite dessert/candy? Creme brule. MmmMmm. Chocolate covered strawberries. De-lish. 

*First Job? I wrapped Christmas presents in the mall! I don't mean to brag, but I have great paper creasing, wrapping skills.  My bow work needs a ton of work though!

*1st Boyfriend? I had a crush on a boy named Kyle in 7th grade. I liked him allllllllllll year. Finally, last day of school, he "asked me out." Oh, the days of middle school crushes!

*Favorite quality in myself? Honesty. I cannot tell a lie.

*Tattoos/Piercings: No tattoos. I had my nose pierced 2 separate times. {Just a small rhinestone stud} Once removed for parental demands, freshman year of college, and secondly for work. It isn't allowed to have piercings other than your ears, so I had to wear a "spacer." Mine fell out right before work and I didn't have time to purchase a new one :( By the next morning, it has already started to grow back. Ah, I loved it and would still have it today if I could!

*Blessed to have_____? Loving, supportive parents who are active in my life. They have instilled in me the principles to lead my life and I hope one day I can do the same for my children. 

There's so much more I could add, but this is just a start! I hope you all enjoy my blog and maybe find my boring and uneventful life in some way exciting to read about!



  1. We should start a gift wrapping business around the holidays. My first job was at JCPenney and I had to gift wrap. I can wrap a seamless gift like nobody's business. We would need to recruit someone for bows, though. I suck at those too :)

  2. I absolutely adore Stella! She is just precious. Do you ever have her cut in the full poodle clip? I'm not going to lie, I've put my darling Sperry in it a few times. I think she could rock it!
