9 Things

It has come to my attention that I do not have an "About Me" section. And since I typically don't post about my own life... I figured I'd share a little bit about myself. I am by no means tech savvy therefore it may take me 5 years to get an actual "About Me" page- I'll keep you posted on that one. I tried to think of 10 things but I am sincerely not that exciting so 9 will have to do. 

1. I went to the University of Wisconsin- Madison and recently graduated last May. This is #1 because I am obsessed with all things UW, Sconnie, and cheese-related.

2. I used to be a dancer & won 5 IDTA state championships with my dance team throughout high school. Yes, I'm talking about high school. No, I swear I didn't "peak" when I was 17.

3. I was born and raised in a suburb of Chicago & in Lake Geneva, WI where my dad lives.

4. I was an only child for 10 years which makes my sister and brother 10 & 12 years younger than me (quite the age gap). 

5. I've been to 3 continents, 7 countries, and about 22 states (I don't feel like counting so that may be off slightly). I LOVE to travel & would prefer to live somewhere in Europe.

Surfing in Costa Rica w/ my roommates.

6.  I hate the taste of cilantro and fully believe people are genetically predisposed to hate it.

7. I've mentioned him before, but I've been dating my boyfriend since I was 15. He was my first kiss when I was 10 & our families live across the street from each other. *cue Wonder Years soundtrack*

The boy.

8. I work for a major corporate retailer in the Chicago area (there are only a few so I'll let you figure it out  yourself). I've been involved in retail since my very first job when I was 16 and never looked back. I am a merchandiser in Kid's Footwear (baby shoes are so cute).

9. My weaknesses include but are not limited to: french fries, reality tv, chocolate ice cream, and a cute pair of shoes.

Well, I hope you enjoyed getting to know me a little better. Happy Thursday, everyone!

  5. Thanks for sharing! I really like reading these kinds of things because it kind of shows the face behind the blog. :) I actually love Wisconsin (my best friend is from there, though we attended college together in upstate New York), and had a great time in Madison and central Wisconsin when I was there a couple of years ago.

    P.S. You and your boyfriend are adorable! I hope you're having fun living in Chicago.
