9 Things You Should Know About Me


It’s my birthday! Cue the confetti. Pop the bubbly. Okay, not really, but if you want to hook me up with a cupcake, I won’t refuse. Calories don’t count on your birthday, right? I’m pretty sure that’s true. I thought that since it’s my birthday today that it would be fun to share some random facts.


  1. I’m obsessed with Nutella, but try not to keep it in the house. Because I’ll eat the whole jar if left unsupervised.
  2. I was born and raised in California. I’ve been living in Texas for the last five and a half years, and I’ll say that I’m finally adjusted and will use “y’all” in a sentence with ease, although I’ll still use “you guys” among California friends.
  3. I love NPR. Yeah, I don’t care if I sound like a super-nerd making that declaration, but I love NPR. My favorite radio shows are This American Life, Fresh Air, Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me!, A Way with Words, and Snap Judgment. The local station here in DFW is KERA. Plus, public broadcasting is also home to Masterpiece Theatre and Downton Abbey.
  4. Hoodies and yoga pants are my uniform. If I don’t have to leave the house, that is. I choose comfort over style when it comes to working from home.
  5. I’m a huge Disney fan. Even though I’m an adult now, I still enjoy Disneyland and Walt Disney World with the wonderment of a child. I don’t think I’ll ever be too old for Disney. Plus, I met my husband while interning there and that was a huge win!
  6. Dachshunds are my favorite. I grew up with Frieda and Walter. And now I have Kevin, my black and tan dachshund pal.
  7. I never planned on starting my own business. In fact, I avoided business courses in college because I figured that I would have no use for them. Little did I know what lie ahead. But I’m so glad that I decided to go for it. I have the best client in the world and get to do what I love. I don’t take that for granted.
  8. I watch far too much TV. I’m a TV junkie and love the following shows on TV: Once Upon a Time, How to Get Away with Murder, Big Bang Theory, 2 Broke Girls, Downton Abbey, Revenge, and Law & Order: SVU. Two of my favorites that recently ended are How I Met Your Mother and Parenthood. 
  9. I don’t like vegetables. I really wish that potatoes and corn counted because then I would LOVE vegetables. However, since they are more starches than veggies, I drink a green smoothie every day to get more veggies into my diet. My favorite recipe: 2 cups spinach, 1 banana, 1 cup frozen fruit (berries, mango, pineapple, etc), water. Blend to smoothie consistency. Sometimes I add a couple teaspoons of Chia seeds for extra benefits.
