A Little About Me...

Today I thought I would jump on the blogging train and do a post about me, myself, and I.  I found this on GingerBreadCake and figured it would be a great way to add a little personal information to my blog.  I chose the picture above because I consider myself in my prime when it was taken!  It was my last week living in Europe, and I was spending time with my two best friends at our favorite bar.  Plus I was happy with how much I weighed and how long my hair was...please no judgement :)

A. Age: About three weeks into 26. 
B. Bed size:  Full... wanting to upgrade to a Queen, asap.
C. Chore you hate: Taking out the garbage.
D. Dogs: Hallie!!  Although she lives with my parents, she's still my puppy.
E. Essential start to your day: Coffee and twitter - yes I've become addicted, ask C.
F. Favorite color: Pink
G. Gold or silver: Always been silver, but I'm buying more gold now.  It goes better with certain outfits.
H. Height: 5'6
I. Instruments you play: Piano and drums's been light years since I've played both though.
J. Job title: Allocator
K. Kids: No thanks.  In about 20 years maybe.
L. Live: Dallas, Texas
M. Mom’s name: Denise
N. Nicknames: Shell, Bell, Tis
O. Overnight hospital stays: None!
P. Pet peeve: Hmm I have a lot haha :)  The one that's popping into my head right now fake laughing.
Q. Quote from a movie: "You had me at hello."  obviously.  Or the beginning of the Notebook "I'm a common man, and have led a common life.  But I have loved someone with all I have, and that's always been enough." or something like that.  Love it.
R. Right or left handed: Right.
S. Siblings: A pretty cool younger brother, Ev.
T. Time you wake up: Whatever time I need to wake up plus 20 minutes :)  I like sleep.
U. Underwear: Since my Mom, Dad and Grandma read this I'm going to let you just guess!
V. Vegetables you dislike: Cooked carrots.  Gross.
W. What makes you run late: I wake up late.. and I take forever to get ready. 
X. X-Rays you’ve had: Ankle and shoulder.  Drunk accident and car accident.  One pretty funny, one not so much.
Y. Yummy food you make: Well I'm a food blogger, so everything.  Kidding, I've had a lot of let downs!  I think the best thing I make are cookies though :)
Z. Zoo – favorite animal: Penguins

See you all back here tomorrow for some food!


  1. Ew I seriously HATE cooked carrots as well! Prob one of the only vegetables I don't like. Hate em raw too.

  2. I'd love to hear this drunk accident story:-)

  3. Courtney - I got beat up on twitter for my carrot comment! They want to schedule an intervention to get me to like them. If I go, sounds like you have to come too :) Thanks for stopping by!

    Lauren - Yes well, let's just say costume party in college + very high heels + party location being on 5th floor with no elevator aka steps = sprained ankle. Drinks helped with the pain, so it really wasn't an issue until the next morning :) Gives new meaning to let the good times roll! Come back again!

  4. So fun! I love the little chances to get to know fellow bloggers more. I posted this same thing a few weeks ago :)

    By the way, I've given you an award! Stop by my food blog,, to check it out when you get a chance!

  5. Ahhhhh I am so touched by seeying this picture!!! I just thought let's check Rachels blog to see if I can sign my self up for a reminder that you put something on your blog and the first thing is saw was the picture of us!!! I loved that time!!! Still thinking about how cool it was to see you in the USA, next reunion should definately be in the Netherlands again!!!

    Love and miss you!!!


    PS: I saw some great things on your blog, but I don't know if I am able to make it, because in the US you find a lot of easier ingredients, I will try to make one and let you know, I probably have to be creative!!

  6. Melissa - THANK YOU! Great post, and really appreciate your support :)

    Rinath - So glad you were able to stop by and see a picture of yourself! Next reunion needs to be in the Netherlands for sure. Wish I could meet you in Brazil though, I've been really dreaming about that. Let me know if you try anything and how it goes, good luck! Love and msis you!

  7. despite me being 500 lbs in the pic, ill let it slide because yes it brings back so many memories and despite being ridiculously unhealthy at that point in my life, i had no worries or troubles. Rinath, we really do need to get back to the netherlands.... its been way too long. Miss you girls so much!

    Fellow coffee addict, eh? Do yourself a favor and get an Aeropress. Best coffee I've ever made myself, and as good if not better than any I've had at a coffee shop.

    How I make it (inverted): (Sometimes into iced milk.)

    Regular way from the directions:
