30 Things you may not know about me
In keeping the theme of “30” I have decided to share some things you may (or may not) know about me. Writing a post like this is slightly challenging for me. I went through a time in my late teens where I didn’t care who knew what about me because, to be honest, I really just didn’t care. Enter my early 20’s and a couple life changes – all of a sudden I tried to be quite private and share with only my close circles. Now at my late 20’s (wow, will that be weird to not say anymore) I have decided to use this blog as a little therapy for myself, to grow as an adult and share my experiences with others because I am proud of where I am and what I have done in these (short) 30 years.
Hope you enjoy learning a little bit about me!
1) I have been a real estate agent for 6 years but got my first start in the industry when I was 17 working for a mortgage company. 2) I have 3 kids. I am blessed to be a "bonus" mom to my older two. 3) Nashville is my ‘Vegas.’ I also got engaged there and later married there. - Stay tuned because June is also the month I got married and I will be sharing some photos and stories in the near future. 4) I met my husband shortly after I turned 23. He asked me on a card ‘will you go out with me, check yes or no’ and I checked ‘yes’ with a permanent marker. 5) I was a hair stylist in my younger years. 6) I have one sister, she is 18 months younger and a doctor. 7) 3 of my best friends have been in my life for over 20 years. 8) My son and I share a birthday. 9) I really enjoy braiding hair. 10) I bought my most recent vehicle to ‘blend in’ not stand out. I went with white in a very popular make/model. There are almost always 5 of my vehicle on the road at the same time. 11) The only bone(s) I’ve ever broke are toes. 12) I got my first tattoo at 14 (and yes, my parents signed consent.) 13) At 26 I was diagnosed with chronic migraines. I still have daily struggles but am fairly aware of my triggers. 14) The trip that gave me the ‘travel bug’ was to the Bahamas when I was 17. 15) My favourite flowers are peonies and hydrangeas. 16) I’ve always wanted a dog. 17) My parents and I have an extremely close relationship. They are the most selfless people you’ll meet. 18) I love to two step (I have a love for country music but hip hop has its place too.) 19) My favourite song is ‘free fallin’ (The acoustic cover by John Mayer.) 20) I have really long legs, I wore a 34” inseam in early middle school. 21) My dad raised me shooting bow and arrow and riding quads/dirt bikes. He bought me my first quad at 18 months old... it had a kill chord! 22) I answered my phone for business calls the day of my wedding. 23) I have never caused a car accident. 24) I am a person who is rarely satisfied, I have incredible ambition. Sometimes it’s a downfall because I forget to sit back and relax. 25) I think a woman looks sexiest when she has on a high neck outfit and pulls it off with confidence. Showing your ‘goods’ is meant for the bedroom. 26) I didn’t start drinking coffee until my late 20s. 27) ‘Die a happy man’ by Thomas Rhett was my wedding song. His hairdresser did my wedding hair (I found this out the morning of.) 28) I got my first scar rolling my dirt bike, it was a nasty gash across my hip. 29) I wanted to own a bridal boutique when I grew up. 30) I don’t like candy or ice cream.
