Birthday Post 2018

If you haven’t guessed by the title, today is my birthday. I’m 24 today, which is great because everyone likes me again (because nobody likes you when you’re 23). In celebration, I thought I’d tell you guys 24 things about me which you may not know.

  1. I have two cats, Gale and Tony.
  2. I work at a marketing firm as a content manager (I love my job).
  3. I have one brother and the two cutest nephews (they’re 4 and twins).
  4. I have written two children’s books. Neither are published yet, but I’m working with my cousin to get illustrations done, so we can hopefully have at least one published in the next year.
  5. I grew up riding horses and was nationally ranked at one point.
  6. I’m from South Carolina, but I now live in Kentucky.
  7. I majored in English in college.
  8. I love to watch basketball. I prefer college, but the NBA is growing on me. The Kentucky Wildcats are my favorite team.
  9. I got married almost a year ago, and I’m so thankful to have such an amazing husband.
  10. I don’t want kids right now, but I may change my mind at some point.
  11. I really want a dog; my husband and I are thinking about a basset hound.
  12. Macaroni and cheese is my favorite food.
  13. I like to cook and bake, but I don’t bake as often as I’d like.
  14. I am attempting to take up cross stitching, although after recently discovering Louie’s Loops, I may want to switch that to crocheting.
  15. I’ve been playing volleyball since I was about 6 years old but didn’t play in college.
  16. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.
  17. I like to play video games; Skyrim and Dragon Age are my favorites.
  18. I like to read fantasy and mystery books. Most recently, I read the Lord of the Rings series.
  19. Mary Higgins Clark is probably my favorite author. I’ve read most of her books. She writes mysteries.
  20. I hate going to the dentist, but I don’t mind the doctor. I don’t think it’s a fear so much as I didn’t like the one I went to growing up, so by default I’m skeptical of all of them.
  21. I got married at the same place I had both of my high school proms.
  22. I don’t habitually bite my nails, but sometimes I do it when I’m anxious.
  23. John Mulaney is my favorite comedian. If you haven’t seen his Netflix specials, check them out because they’re amazing.
  24. I am not fluent in Spanish, but I can speak quite a bit. I went to Spain right after finishing my last college semester of Spanish and was able to converse much better than I expected.

If you read all the way to the end, thank you! I hope you enjoyed learning a little bit more about me! Here’s to 24 being a great year!

5 Things You May Not Have Known About Me

Every week, I talk about makeup products and tips, but most of you don’t know me from Adam, so who am I to be talking about these things? Well, I’m definitely no expert, but I like to think of makeup as a hobby of mine, so here are a few things about me to help you get to know me a little better.

  1. I used to ride horses when I was younger and was nationally ranked. We had Arabians and rode endurance (very long trail rides).
  2. I played volleyball all the way through high school and still play whenever I can, although now at a much more recreational level. Side note: if a bar in your area has a volleyball league, find some friends and sign up, because it’s a blast.
  3. I have two cats. I have a tan one named Tony (short for Anthony Davis) who is very fat and would be a terrible hunter, but really likes to watch birds through the window. The other one is black, and her name is Gale. She loves her brother, but he does not reciprocate that affection. She also likes to watch birds and play with hair ties.
  4. I like to play video games. Skyrim is my favorite, and I have put way too much time into it, but I also really liked Dragon Age: Inquisition.
  5. I work as a content manager for a marketing firm. Basically, our clients need content written for their websites and I either write it or assign it to one of our content writers to finish and then edit it.

So, now that you know a little more about me, comment some facts about you, so I can get to know you a little better, too!
