Hey Hey!

I don't know that I've ever done a full blown get-to-know-you post but since I haven't posted anything like that in awhile, I figured it would be fun to share some get to know you things about me!

1.  I'm 34, married to Kevin and have a little two year old girl named Molly Anne!  We also have a golden retriever named Mills who is four!

2.  Grew up in Maryland on the Eastern Shore, went to NC State in Raleigh, NC for college in 2000 and spent 5 years there.  Majored in Civil Engineering and also got a business minor while I was there.  Moved to Charlotte in 2005 after college for a job I had gotten to start after I graduated.  I worked there for just under 2 years and have been at my current company ever since (10 years!).  Officially I've lived in North Carolina the same amount of time I lived in Maryland.  17 years both places!

3.  My parents still live in Maryland (same house as I grew up in!).  I have an older brother who just turned 39.  He is married with two little girls and they live on the coast in South Carolina.

4.  I met Kevin November 29, 2007 in our uptown condo building where we had both just purchased condos earlier that month!  He was on the 12th floor and I was on the 13th.  My balcony overlooked his!  We started dating in 2009, got engaged in 2011, married in 2013, had Molly Anne in 2015 and what's happening in 2017?

5.  In 2017, we are building a home!  Should be ready before Thanksgiving, maybe!

6.  I work for a commercial developer doing project management.  All of my work is out of town so I've always traveled for work.  Right now I'm doing a lot of Utah work but I've been fortunate to travel all over!

7.  Favorite things to do - run (ha, haven't done this in awhile!), Flywheel (ha, haven't done this in awhile), shop, go to the beach, be on a boat, play with Molly Anne and take her to the pool, cook and travel.  These days my life is consumed with work, building a house and being a mama!

8.  Favorite things - salt and vinegar chips, tanqueray and tonics, social media, Bachelor/Bachelorette (only tv shows I watch!), popcorn,  golden retrievers, J. Crew and Lilly Pulitzer.

9.  I'm mostly organized although I still forget things, I live and breathe by the calendar on my phone, Kevin says my life revolves around doing my hair (only twice a week), I am particular on manners and doing what is right - sometimes too much, I'm a rule follower and things are black and white to me.  I like everything to be perfect.


Thank you all for continuing to read this little blog of mine!  In a week or so, I will have blogged for EIGHT years!  That's a long time and back before blogging was big.  Thankful to have kept it up for this long!

Loved this post! I am a total rule follower too. So glad I've gotten to know you beyond just blogging, friend!!

Too cute - and laughed out loud that Kevin said too many things revolve around your hair. Such a thing a guy just can't understand!

Margot said...

Love this post! Happy to know you in real life, friend!

Love what you posted! I like doing what is right, a rule follower, love good manners, and somewhat of a perfectionist. These really are not bad traits. Are you the oldest child in your family, as these tend to be traits of an oldest child

Girl, I literally write whether I'm washing/blowing out my hair or dry shampooing my hair on my weekly to do list. I gotta carve out that time to tame the beast!!!!

Love this intro/reminder. Makes me miss blogging(somewhat lol!) but I'm certainly glad this little space of the internet connected us!

Love it...esp #9. Perfectionists rule. (Although sometimes we are too hard on ourselves!)

My fiancé and I work for a construction firm for international airports (he is a civil engineer/site agent & I write bids and proposals). Some of the places we have worked have been amazing (London for a year and a half) some awful (you could not get me out of Gibraltar fast enough aha). Love your blog and getting to know more about you!

I love a clean pantry! Did you donate the food? I would hate to see all that go to waste!

Amanda said...

Oh my gosh, only twice a week!?! I would love to know your hair secrets.

Genny said...

Love your blog and it is so nice to get to know you! I'm a rule follower too! Lol Good luck with building -- we've done it and while fun, so stressful! We have a daughter named Molly too!

MCW said...

I am not really a rule follower, but one of my good friends is and we mess with her all the time. Ha. Can't wait to see your house finished!

Leslie said...

I think I've been blogging for about eight years too! Isn't that crazy? I feel blogging has changed so much, but it's so funny to go back and look at how things have changed. I loved reading your list!

Love this post!!!

Speaking of doing what's right I thought we agreed no thank you cards ;) hahah?! You also must fill me in on the "only do my hair twice a week" thing. I am super jealous as I HATE doing my hair (and it's super time consuming) but it looks truly terrible if I leave it alone.
