The Fact of Me

A little late to the game. . . but better late than never!
Here are a few fun facts (aka: things you've been dying to know about me)!
I've donated my hair 3 times to 3 different organizations.
I like to spread the wealth the hair.
Every (real) job I've had so far has been for a non-profit.
(Habitat for Humanity, Mental Health Clinic, Adoption Agency and Hospital)
 I've lived in Massachusetts my whole life, except for four years of college in North Carolina and one year following college in California.  I like both of those states better - mainly b/c they are warmer.  But my family is in MA so I stick around despite the miserable winters!
I LOVE country music (blame it on the years in NC)!
I hate eggs.  No matter how they are cooked.  Yuck!
I love sangria, ice cream, pad thai, french fries, and ice cream.
I think giving back to your community is very important.  I volunteer regularly.  Everyone should!
Currently I volunteer with MAAV, NMSS Greater New England Chapter and AFC Mentoring.
In the past I have volunteered for Habitat for Humanity, my college alumni chapter and Hole in the Wall Gang Camp just to name a few.  There are so many amazing organizations out there to get involved with!
In undergrad I studied abroad for a semester in London (best four months ever)!
In grad school I took a class that traveled to Romania which was an unforgettable experience.
I love shows that include singing - American Idol, The Voice, The Sing Off (so sad it is no longer on), Smash, Nashville. . . this may be the first time I don't watch AI - I'm just not into the new judges.  
I LOVE to travel.  I will go anywhere!  I'm always planning my next getaway.  I really would love to go to Africa and Australia (but since you need a lot of money and a lot of time neither of those will happen anytime soon).  Someday!


  1. I can't handle Nicki Minaj, so I won't be watching AI. She's bat sh*t crazy. And I'm with you-- I wish I had nothing but time and money to travel all over!! :)

  2. Right with you on the volunteering! I've been doing Relay For Life stuff for the past four or five years. It's a good fit for my life right now!

  3. I wholeheartedly agree with you and Katie. Nicki Minaj doesn't even look like she's enjoying judging, plus she's crazy.

  4. I am right there with you on all of those favorite foods!

  5. Oh my goodness- eggs are my favorite! I could live off them- haha.

  6. I'm definitely with you on the singing shows. I fell in love with Smash last season! I watched a couple episodes of American Idol but it just feels wrong. The Mariah and Nicki feud almost feels forced and awkward. My husband just kept repeating over and over that they both sound stupid.

  7. I love that you have only worked for non profits!

  8. I LOVE nashville!!! And btw, your blog design is one of the cutest/best I've seen! I'm following thanks to Jess at Tooth N Nails! :) Jen
