10 things you probably didn't know about me...
Hey guys!! I thought it would be fun to share a few things about myself so you can get to know me a little better.
Leave a comment on the bottom of this post to tell me something I might not know about you!
I love swimming.
I am my happiest when I am in water--lake, ocean or pool, doesn't matter, as long as I'm in the water. I love snorkeling and hope to scuba one day. Oddly though, I don't love showering!
I love to eat and drink--just about anything.
Sushi, ice cream, salads, brussel sprouts (yes! Love them!), red wine, latte’s, I love it all!!
I flew a plane in 7th grade.
Okay, this one sounds more dangerous than it really was...my uncle is a pilot and took us up in his plane whenever we would visit. He would let us take the controls about half way though our flight---which was so fun! And, technically, I get to say I flew a plane :)
I swam with sharks--no cage!
My husband and I went on a cruise a while back (where we got engaged!). We went on an excursion in Nassau, Bahamas where we swam with black tip reef sharks. I would TOTALLY recommend this excursion to anyone traveling there--it was awesome!! There were probably 20 sharks below and around us when we got in the water to snorkel with them. We didn’t touch them (and thankfully none of them touched us!) but a few got pretty close. Being in the water so close to the sharks was a very powerful experience!
I nursed my son until he was 19 months old and am very proud that I did.
I feel so blessed that nursing came easy to us--it is very challenging for many. Nursing my daughter is going equally as well at this point, which I continue to be thankful for.
I have delivered several babies.
My day job is working as a nurse and I have been doing so since 2005. My first job was in Labor & Delivery (L&D) which I loved (though, night shift didn't really agree with me!) Babies come when they want to come--some very quickly, so the doctors don't always make it in time for the delivery. Thankfully L&D RNs are awesome and most can delivery babies calmly and safely!
I have a legit fear of styrofoam!
The noise of it makes my skin crawl!!! I absolutely hate opening packages or boxes with styrofoam in it! Ew--I can't even talk about it anymore!
I love snowboarding even though I’m horrible at it…
Proof...I was at a hill a few years back and some kids on the lift were looking down at me and yelled, “hey lady, you suck at snowboarding!” Thanks kids! Even though I’m terrible, it doesn't stop me from going as much as I can. One day I’ll get to a blue hill. Hahaha!
I don't have a large group of friends, but the ones I have are incredible.
I’m lucky to have the sort of friendships that always pick up where they left off, even if its been 6 months since we have spoken to or seen each other. My good friends are strong, supportive and caring women who would do anything for each other, including me!
I dont wear makeup---and LOVE it!
I try to live a relatively natural lifestyle and when I researched how many toxins are in makeup I stopped wearing it. I love how easy it is to get ready in the morning, I love that I don't have to wash it off at night, and I love that I feel beautiful even without it! I might go back to wearing it someday (hello dark under-eye circles!) but for now, love going without it.
