Casual Friday

Hey guys!

Today I wasn’t really in the mood to do any kind of deep, inspirational post. I thought I would keep things light and airy since it’s Friday and give you guys some random facts about me so you guys can get to know the girl behind this blog a bit better. Hope you all enjoy!

1.) I absolutely love Christmas. It is hands down the best time of the year and I have always been obsessed. I actually was Christmas two years ago for Halloween.


2.) I broke my left arm when I was 5 because I fell off the monkey bars. I ended up in a bright purple cast and my arm still isn’t completely straight.

3.) Mozzarella sticks are my favorite meal and I could eat them everyday as sad as that is.

4.) Besides mozz sticks I also really, really love dessert and breakfast food. I can eat cupcakes for breakfast (and I have on many occasions). And I would eat french toast over dinner food any day.

5.) I’m a bit of an adrenaline junkie and I love doing exhilarating things. I’ve done a hot air balloon ride, I’ve cliff jumped, zip-lined in Mexico, swam in an underground river through caves and the list goes on. I also love roller coasters.


6.) I’m extremely empathetic the majority of the time toward other people and sometimes I literally feel like I can feel other people’s pain.

7.) I have an amazing natural sense of direction and I regularly test myself by not using my GPS when I get lost. I call it “my game” and let’s just say other people hate when I play it when they’re in the car  😉 It actually runs in my family and my dad is the same way.

8.) I come from a mostly female family. I have three sisters and almost no male cousins besides a few on my dad’s side. When my nephew was born we were all shocked because we were convinced we couldn’t make boys.

9.) I hate scary movies and I won’t watch them. I end up laying awake with my over-active imagination and freaking out for nights on end if I watch them. Sometimes even scary commercials are too much for me. I’m surprised I’ve gotten through seasons of American Horror Story and even that show I can’t watch alone.

10.) I have olive skin that tans extremely easily and I rarely get burnt. I get so many different assumptions about what I am like Portuguese, Syrian, Hispanic, etc but it’s actually just really strong southern Italian genes passed down from my grandfather. The rest of my bloodline is just Irish, French and Scottish.

I hope you guys enjoyed this fun post and got to know a little bit more about me. Leave me a comment below and let me know something about you! I would love to hear it. Have an amazing Friday!
