Things You Need to Know

I figured it's been about a year since I started this little blog (actually over a year, but let's not discuss that) and it was about time to come up with some new creative 'about me' facts. By reading some of my posts you'll already see that I spend a lot of time with friends and family, I crave traveling, and I'm in school.

But I got to thinking...what else could there be? What's something fun/random you don't know about me already. And thus, this post was created! I'm sticking with 13 facts, which you'll see why soon!

1. I was born on the 13th of August. No, not a Friday the 13th, but my birthday has fallen on a Friday multiple times. I like to consider 13 my lucky number, even though people swear it's not lucky. (No, I'm not trying to be like T.Swift. Not a fan).

2. Whenever people ask where I grew up, I always hesitate for a second. I was born and raised in Baton Rouge, but spent all my summer/free time with my family down in New Orleans so I consider myself having 'grown up' in both places.

3. I prefer salty snacks to sweets. Bag of chips? Pretzels? Done and done. Cake every other day? No thanks.

4. I spend a lot of time, especially at night, driving around with my friends. From just two of us, to all five of us piling in the car. Some of these nights are my favorite memories.

5. When I was younger, I used to refer to myself as a giraffe. Not only do I have a long neck, but I've got a skin condition that makes my skin have patches that looks like a giraffe's spots at times.

6. My mom & I are pretty much the same person. Whenever I got my hair cut, I walked into the house and the first thing my dad said was 'Oh my god you look like a spitting image of your mother'. (It's funny because they're divorced).

7. I've never been out of the country.

8. I can speak Italian, somewhat fluently. I can read it almost perfectly.

9. I'm awful at doing my own makeup. I hardly ever wear any, unless we're going out or it's a dance.

10. I love beanies. Not all hats are created equal. Beanies will forever hold a place in my heart.

11. There's a tiny town called Cocodrie that will forever be my favorite place in the entire world. Regardless of where I travel to in the future.

12. I'd chose Cheeto Puffs to Crunchy Cheetos any day, though I'd never tell this to my mom ;)

13. I'm determined. If I set my mind to something, I'll accomplish it.

I'd love to get to know you as well! Send me an email or follow me at one of the bottom ones! Leave a comment here with a few things about yourself. 


  1. When people ask me where I grew up I also hesitate because we moved around a lot when I was young. We didn't move to Pittsburgh, PA (where I am currently) until I was 2 months shy of my 13th bday. It gets complicated.

    I also much rather have salty then sweet. Chips are my weakness!

  2. Love the pic of you with your glasses! I've heard of Cocodrie's but not sure that I've ever been, guess by it being your fav, I would've known it if I've been there. 100% Puffs over crunchy! Yum!!


Thanks for saying hello! I love hearing from all of you & reply back to everyone as quickly as I can! xoxo
