Blissful Blogger

Hi lovelies! I hope that you had a wonderful 3-day weekend! I had a half-day on Friday so this weekend has felt especially long and lovely. I’ve been rather mia from the blog world all weekend long so I’m excited to get caught up today!

In the spirit of getting caught up, it’s time for me to finally write my blissful blogger post! I’m so lucky to have been tagged in this by some wonderful bloggers (Beautiful Disasters, Simple Eats, Flopoodle, Squirrel Snackin’) so it’s time to tell you some random facts. I always love these posts because I love to hear more details about other bloggers so hopefully you’ll enjoy it too!

So without further ado, here are 7 things you don’t know about me!

1. I love Shakespeare!

At Shakespeare's Globe Theater in London!

I’ve always loved reading and seeing plays, but I have a special soft spot for Shakespeare. My love of Shakespeare was born in the 7th grade when my class went to the Oregon Shakespeare festival. I sat there amazed and in awe, watching these plays and horrified that my classmates were talking or sleeping during such incredible performances! Since then, my love of Shakespeare has only grown and I was lucky enough to see the Merry Wives of Windsor at Shakespeare’s Globe Theater. My love of Shakespeare also grew in school though my Political Science senior seminar- Shakespeare and Politics!

2. My hair is naturally curly

Freshman year of college at a Grecian themed party

It took me a very long time to find photographic evidence of my curly hair. As you can tell by most of the pictures I post, I never wear my hair curly. The funny thing is that as a kid, I was in so many plays and dance recitals so my mom used to have to curl my hair every night. I hated sleeping in those foam rollers (anyone else remember those?) and would wish every time that I had naturally curly hair. Well when I hit puberty, my wish came true, only I didn’t want curly hair anymore! I got my first straightener in 8th grade and have blowing my hair out and straightening it ever since!

3. I am afraid of ants

The idea of putting up a picture of real ants grossed me out too much, so this is a picture from the movie!

I don’t know when it started, but somewhere along the way I became terrified of ants. Everyone always makes fun of me because they are so small and (basically) harmless but they freak me out! I feel like where there is one ant, there will inevitably be more and groups of ants scare me.

4. I used to want to be a fashion designer

Sophomore year- If it Isn't Neon, it shouldn't be on exchange and the only dress I have ever sewn by hand!

Somewhere in our boxes of photos, there is a picture of me in fourth grade, dressed in a periwinkle suit with a measuring tape around my neck. It was Halloween and I was dressed up as what I wanted to be someday… a fashion designer! Forget the fact that I couldn’t (and still can’t) sew- I used to sketch all the time and loved fashion. In fact, as a kid I used to go into stores with my mom and re-accessorize their mannequins. I’ve come a long way since then, but when I was in college I used to sketch in class to brainstorm outfits for dates and costumes for exchanges.

5. I have a group of friends called the Core4

The first Core4 Bride 2 years ago!

I’m blessed to have lots of wonderful friends but one particular group of my friends call ourselves the Core 4. We met my sophomore year of high school in French class and immediately bonded over cooking projects, videos and scrapbooks (yes, my teacher was awesome) and started hanging out outside of class. We’ve remained close friends over the years and although we don’t see each other as often as we’d like, we’ve been able to maintain our friendship through lots of long facebook messages!

6. I’m a DG!

My first picture as a DG on bid night!

I’m not sure if I’ve ever expressly mentioned this on the blog, but my freshman year of college I joined the sorority, Delta Gamma. It made my college experience so much fun and I met some of my best friends through my sorority. I’m now active in the alumni chapter in SF and getting to know some amazing women here too! (Plus, I have all the anchor/nautical gear you could ever want so I’m always set for those themes!)

7. I love country music!

I’m mostly a top-40 kind of girl and I’m not ashamed to admit it, but the only true music genre that I love is country music. Some of my favorite artists are Rascal Flatts, Lady Antebellum, Jason Aldean, Keith Urban, etc. I feel like country music is the type that can totally express how you are feeling so I love putting it on and belting it out when I drive or listening to it on repeat on my iphone.

So that’s it! Hope you learned some random things about me! Since I’m not the best at keeping track of who’s done this, apologies if you’ve already filled this out/been tagged!

  1. Emily, you’re a girl after my own heart. I’m a Shakespeare lover too! I actually remember asking for the Romeo and Juliet movies for Christmas when I was 11 (nerd alert!) haha ;)

  2. thanks for the tag! My hair is naturally curly (like ringlet curly…it has been since I was born..) and it drives me crazy! I rarely wear it down and curly because it just get’s frizzy… I always straighten it! I have a group of 5 friends that are like your core 4… we all met in high school so we don’t see each other that often, but when we do see each other it’s like we were never apart!
