Bloggers 4-1-1!

Super excited that Becky is hosting this link-up! I still feel like I'm fairly new to the blogging world so this is a GREAT opportunity to share more about myself, and learn more about all the fabulous blogs I already read ;)

PLUS, this is officially my 100th post-- Happy Day!!

1. How long have you been blogging? And what got you started on blogging?
My first blog post was September 19, 2011 and it's pathetic. So don't go read it, no seriously, don't. I had a few gals from college that started blogging about their newlywed lives, and I thought it would be a fun way to stay in touch, I never thought I'd be making friends with people all over the country! A few family members read it, and a handful of friends, but it's developed into much more than "life updates" to share with relatives.

2. Did you go to college? If so what did you study?
I have a B.A. in Print Communication, with minors in Graphic Design & Marketing
I also completed my M.Ed. in Sports Administration in December of 2010
....So I have a lot of interests, big deal?!

3. Where have you traveled?
Not a TON, I've visited 23 states + honeymooned in Mexico.
I want to see the WORLD though, so if you'd like to pay for me to travel, let me know ;)

4. If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you would buy?
Honestly, I would pay off our student loans first.
Second would be a new car for J-- his is falling apart.
Third- New appliances for me ;)
Fourth- Go SHOPPING for an upcoming VACATION!

5. What is something you enjoy to do when you have me time?
I love to take a long bath with a good book....
Organize something, anything!
Work on my own book!

6. If you could have a $10,000 shopping spree to one store, which store would it be?
Only 1?!?
Hmmm... Probably LOFT orrrrrr Express. I'll decide when I get that $10k.
Or maybe just Target now that I think about it... I mean, they have everything!
Yes, Target. Final answer.

7. What day would you love to relive again?
It's probably cliche but I'd love to relive our wedding day again, from start to finish. Or even the day we got engaged. Both were so perfect and fun, and such an exciting time!

8. If your life was turned into a movie... what actor would play you?
I've been told I look like Mena Suvari (when she has brown hair)
but I think I'd prefer Zooey Deschanel because I just love her ;)

9. What are the jobs you had in high school/college/the early years?
Funny you should ask. That book I'm writing? It's about this!

I've worked:
Concession Stand Worker at a local amusement park
Administrative Assistant for a trash company
Retail, again!
Call Center Rep at a larger amusement park
Staff sports writer for college newspaper
Standardized Test Grader
.....AND my current job :)

10. Show us a picture from high school or college.
A few pictures for your viewing pleasure, yes I had blonde in my hair at one point.
Never again.

Me and my roomy; freshman year at college
Some of my good friends/roomates; freshman year of college
Obviously- June 2006; home after first year of college with high school BFF.
11. If you could travel anywhere in the world, all expenses paid, where would you go?
I blogged about this just last week. Check it out here!

12. Show us the most current picture of you or you and your family.
This is the most recent picture of J and I, taken at my great-aunt's
90ths bday party just a couple weekends ago!

13. Where do you see your life 5 years from now?
5 years from now I'll be 30 years old (crazy!)
I'd like to be a published author.
Student-loans paid off.
A mom.
Looking for our next house.
Still crazy in love with my husband and loving our life together :)
