Here goes nothing…

My first blog post…here we go.

I thought I would share 26 things about me. Why 26? Keep reading to find out.

  1. I am 26 years old…hence the 26.
  2. I am married to my wonderful husband Jason. We have been married for 2 years. He is the love of my life.
  3. I am a mom to a beautiful little girl. She is 2 1/2 months old. She brings so much joy to our lives…when she takes naps. She currently believes babies don’t take naps.
  4. I am the oldest of 5 girls. We range in age from 26-10. These girls are my best friends. I always have someone to talk to.
  5. My mom and my dad are two of the best people I know. They are always there to support me.
  6. I am a follower of Christ. My faith is a huge part of my life. I don’t know what I would do without it. “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.”           -Philippians 4 :13
  7. I am an Oncology Nurse and proud of it. I have worked in oncology now for 6 years. I don’t ever see myself working in any other specialty. It can be beyond difficult and heartbreaking at times but my patients and coworkers are the best.
  8. Writing this blog makes me excited, yet anxious. I am excited to document my life. If just one person reads it and can relate I am happy.
  9. Right now…my daughter is sleeping, my husband is eating Veggie Straws, and I am writing while watching the Bachelorette. This is my life.
  10. My guilty pleasure show is The Bachelor/Bachelorette. Thanks to my coworkers 🙂
  11. I love to craft. Pinterest is my jam. My craft table always looks like a tornado just went through. I have several projects going on at once. I need a craft room.
  12. My favorite TV show is Fixer Upper. I want to be Joanna Gaines when I grow up.
  13. I love to read, I don’t do enough of it.
  14. I love food! Like too much. I don’t have a favorite, I have too many.
  15. If I could open a bakery from my house I would. I love to decorate cupcakes…and then eat the cupcakes.
  16. I wish I was better at cooking. I am not bad by no means…but I strive to be better. I am always trying new recipes and experimenting.
  17. I am terrified of snakes, mice, spider and flying squirrels. Pretty much anything that will jump out and scare me.
  18. Growing up we had flying squirrels in our house…not as pets. Hence the fear of flying squirrels.
  19. I hate grocery shopping. So I go with my mom every Tuesday to make it more bearable.
  20. I can’t wait to buy a house a decorate it. I want to channel my inner Joanna Gaines…and Chip too. Demo day!
  21. I want to start running…we shall see if that ever happens. I have wanted to start for years. I just hate being sweaty and feeling like I can’t breathe.
  22. I love to get my nails done. A girl needs to pamper herself.
  23. I live in Michigan and love exploring the state. Northern Michigan is one of my favorite places in the world. The beaches, wineries, shopping, food…need I say more? I just love to travel.
  24. I am afraid of failure and disappointing people. Sometimes it is crippling. My anxieties can sometimes get the best of me.
  25. My favorite color is light blue/aqua. I may be obsessed. I will someday have an aqua front door. (Still have to convince the hubs on this one)
  26. I want a puppy. A black lab puppy. I loved my family black lab Midnight growing up and still love our family lab, Shooter. I kinda want to steal her from my parents. My sisters still living at home would kill me.
