A Little Bit about Moi

Hey there, friends (and new friends!)

Would you like to know a little bit about me? I hope so, because that's kind of what this post is all about...And I really do promise I'm not self-centered. I feel like I should say that since I talk a lot about myself. But since I'm not married/livin on my own/don't have a boyfriend, what else is there to talk about, really? Besides my family. I talk about them a lot, too. haha:) This post was prompted by the Gentri/Kristy/Kaitlyn "Send Something Good" project I'm participating in. So excited about it!
  • I really, really, really, really, REALLY love my family. SO much. I talk about them more than I talk about me, I think! but that's good, right?

[L to R: Eric (brother-in-law), Briana, Shaunelle, Rachel, me, Mom, Dad]
  • I looooove everything retro: retro movies, retro clothes, retro records (I scored a record player a while back, and I L-O-V-E it!), retro accessories, you name it. If it's retro, I guarantee I'll love it:)
  • I'm really into crafting, sewing, and doodling. I love doing that kind of thing SO much.
  • My favorite color is blue. As in this color blue:
(the sea...*sigh* I wanna be at the beach!)
  • I'm really not a cooker. It's not that I can't follow a recipe, it's just that...I don't. haha! I do happen to love noodles a little too much, though.........seriously. This picture pretty much sums up my life and I laugh so hard each time I see it:

  • I teach viola/violin lessons to the cutest little kiddos on the planet. I get a kick out of them.
  • I'm double majoring in Elementary Education and Music Education. Basically I'll be at school for a long, long time. Good thing I love it, though!
  • I don't like popcorn. Call me crazy. Call me a sinner. But I don't.
  • I might be a little short. But hey, I'm taller than my mom (for the record, she's wearing high heels in our family picture. But I am taller, I promise!)
  • I love to laugh. So much. Ever heard of Brian Reagan? Veggie Tales? Disney/Pixar movies? Funny children? my family? :) yeah. that's all.
  • I've moved around a lot. like I said in yesterday's post, my dad was in the air force for 21 years and so we got to live in a bunch of cool places. I was born in Yorktown, VA and then moved to some pretty cool places--the coolest probably being Korea. Granted, it was only for a year, but I still count it. I also loved Tucson, AZ. That's where I did most of my growing up. I'm a desert girl!
  • I really love to swim. I teach swim lessons during the summer at our city pool and I just can't get enough.

Hope you learned something fun about me.

I'd love to learn some super fun things about you! I got a fancy shamncie new email account just for the occaison (and...similar future occasions. basically from now until the end of time.)
Send me some love:
I hope you'll write me--I pinky promise I'll write back.
...and I hope you have a lovelee day:)
