11 Facts About Me:
- I was born in Fort Worth, Texas, but was raised and grew up in Salisbury, MD. No matter where Jarrett and I live, I will always be a southern gal.
- I was a field hockey goalie in high school. Yes, it was hilarious to see me being swallowed up by all that gear, but I would not have traded it for anything.
- I love to run even though I rarely do it anymore. This year I am trying to put the gym and running back into my normal routine. I want to train and run a 5k(s) as well. Stay tuned for those adventures.
- As I've stated before, I want to be the female Nicholas Sparks. One day I will be.
- I LOVE dessert. Any kind of sweet thing or dessert, I will eat it. I probably eat like three or four sweet things a day. I have a problem.
- I am obsessed with dachshunds. If I could, I would have a whole farm full of dachshunds. Seriously. I am in the process of trying to convince Jarrett of why we should get another dachshund, preferably a long haired female named Genevieve. Just saying!
- I am kind of obsessed with wanting to become a mom. I know that when the time is right for us, it will happen, but I literally wish I could just make a wish and boom, us have three kids already. Crazy huh?
- I am a Christian and I love God undeniably.
- When I was a little girl, I did ballet. I was adorable in a tutu just so you know.
- I want to travel the world. My start will be in March when I visit another country to spend two weeks with Jarrett on deployment (I cannot post the country just yet).
- I want to have it all. Is that so bad? :)
- Where do you live? -Hampton, VA for now.
- Do you want to be living there? Why or why not? -Yes, I do want to stay here because our family is only three hours away and we love it.
- What is your occupation? - For now, I am a sales associate/pretty much assistant manager at Hallmark. I love the store, but cannot wait to have a full time job and career.

- What is your favorite food? -Chocolate :)
- What types of food are you afraid to try? - Nothing really. I'll pretty much eat anything.
