Hello there!! I was thinking about what to write all day, and then I got tagged for “get to know you!” Easy peasy lemon squeezy! Here is some stuff about me. To all my lovely followers: YOU HAVE BEEN TAGGED!! I want to see yours! 🙂
- Are you named after anyone?
Yep! First name: Shelby from Steel Magnolias! Middle name: Elizabeth, a family name. 🙂
- When was the last time you cried?
- Do you have kids?
Does this cutie count? Then yes! One 4 year old son named Bounce!
- If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
- Do you use sarcasm a lot?
Eh? Sometimes, but it’s not a large part of my personality.
- What’s the first thing you notice about people?
- What is your eye color?
- Scary movie or happy endings?
HAPPY ENDINGS!! Fairy tales and rom coms are my jam!
- Favorite smells?
Pumpkin spice (laugh all you want), fresh cookies, Calvin Klein Eternity Aqua, and apple pie! Wow, lots of desserts…
- What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home?
- Do you have any special talents?
YES. I can touch my tongue to my nose AND do the belly wave. Not trying to brag, but I can even do both at the same time! #madskillz
- Where were you born?
- What are your hobbies?
Dancing, eating, shopping, reading, blogging (duh), fashion, and anything dealing with coffee.
- Do you have any pets?
See my kids answer! 😉
- Do you have any siblings?
Yep! 3 brothers and a sister, plus the in-laws! Only one is my actual sibling by birth. The rest were cousins who became siblings when we were adopted by our aunt and uncle!
- What do you want to be when you grow up?
Oh gosh, I am already grown up! After my PhD, I want to stay in education, but either go the administration track or the professor and eventually dean track. I know God will lead me in the right direction when I finish that doctorate! #drrose
- How tall are you?
Not tall enough to reach my top cabinets! 5’3!
- How many countries have you visited?
4: Mexico, Belgium, Germany, and Luxembourg
- What was your favorite/worst subject in High School?
My favorite was English, and my worst was science.
- What is your Favorite drink? Animal? Perfume?
My favorite drink is definitely a Starbucks latte! I like to vary the flavors! My favorite animal is a sweet, cuddly dog! My favorite perfume is Calvin Klein Eternity Aqua, with Polo’s #1 (the blue one) coming in a close second!
- What would you (or have you) name your children?
My first son will be Killian James Rose, possibly spelled Cillian, the traditional Irish way. And we may do Benjamin as the middle name instead, because it’s tradition on his side to give the first born son the father’s first name as their middle name. But we like James too! We’re still debating those things! My first daughter will be Annabelle Elizabeth Rose. All the women on my mom’s side have Elizabeth as the middle name! Then my second son will be William Benjamin Rose or William James Rose. Whichever one we don’t do for Killian! That’s all we have so far!
- What Sports do you play/Have you played?
I ran track in high school, but besides that, my sport has always been dance! I started dancing at age 4, and now I run the dance team at our middle school!
- Who are some of your favorite YouTubers?
I am not really a YouTube person as of right now, but there are bloggers who vlog that I follow. Carly the Prepster, formerly The College Prepster, is my absolute favorite! She has stayed true to herself and her brand for years, and we love a lot of the same things! Our hometowns are also like 45 minutes apart! Another one I like is TT Bret, a cosplayer with tons of Harry Potter stuff! #nerdalert
- Favorite memory from childhood?
Definitely all of the cool opportunities that dance provided me. One takes the cake, though. When I was 10, our ballet company put on a ballet dealing with Iran. They invited the Shahbanou of Iran to come and watch it. I knew nothing about Iran, but 10 year old me felt entitled to meet royalty, because I was, like, totally going to be a royal one day. Duh. So meeting her was a really cool part of my childhood! She was super sweet!
- How would you describe your fashion sense?
It’s preppy for sure, especially during spring and summer when I can wear my array of polos and Lilly dresses! I also have a super vintage flair, though! I like to add some ’50s sparkle to my outfits! It’s fabulous, yet modest!
- What phone do you have? (iOS v Android?)
- Tell us one of your bad habits!
I accidentally adopt other people’s speech patterns when I talk to them, and I have to be careful that it doesn’t seem like I’m making fun of anyone! It’s funny, because if I live in a new place long enough, their accent starts to come out! When I lived in Washington state for 3 years, I first got teased for sounding too southern, but when I got to Oklahoma, they straight up thought I was a northerner because I had started saying “bayg” instead of bag! I got rid of it pretty quick after being back where I belong, in the good ol’ south! 😉
Thanks for reading and getting to know me better! Don’t forget to do yours!! Y’all have a great Friday night!
