6 things to know about me...

So. Got onto my blog today and started stalking my friends, when SURPRISE! I've been tagged in something (that NEVER happens. seriously. Ha. and also, i may have been a wee bit excited...)
Well, Jenna here you go! :)

1. Is this how you imagined your life would be?

I always had this plan in my head of what my life would be like...what I would do as a grown up. It consisted of me getting married, having kids, having a home, a dog, a suv, and being happy. Thats it. Pretty simple right?

Well, my life has definitely taken more of a curvy path instead of a straight shot on my way there. I made myself go to school (just kidding, that was all my parents) and then i went to cosmetology school of all things. I am so not a girly girl, and so that was a shock--even to me! Then after a failed engagement...and thinking i was NEVER going to get married, i met my sweetheart and was married--at the ripe old age of 22. Never in my life did I think of a career I wanted...I just wanted to be a mom. And its turned out to be a pretty difficult journey for us as you can read about here. I live in a condo-turned apartment...and while we dont own a house yet, i do feel like this is my HOME. I also dont have an SUV...maybe when a baby finally decides to join our family we'll be able to get that :) and the dog will have to wait until we have a home with a yard.

So, while its not gone as SMOOTHLY as i had hoped/planned on...I wouldnt trade what I've learned and gained from everything. And i scored a pretty awesome husband in the process. :)

2. If money were no question, I would purchase ...

A couple of things:
#1:A house. Single level. Big backyard. With an attached room for my at home salon.
#2:A 2013 Nissan Pathfinder--its always been my plan to own a pathfinder--and they have re-done the body and now Jace wants one too.
#3: To build a custom cabin up on my families ranch. I already have the land--and thats half the cost!
#4: Babies :) Fertility treatments cost does adoption.

3. What's your drink of choice when out with girlfriends?
So...I dont drink alcohol. and unfortunately, i havent had a girls night out in a LONG time! however, i love a virgin strawberry daquiri--YUMMY! I also love Pepsi...but i'm trying to be good right now and not drink caffine/soda. Another soda that sometimes i just CRAVE, is Henry Weinharts Orange Cream. mm.

4. What do you love about yourself?

I love that I'm organized. It tends to drive me crazy when things are out of place (mild OCD over here), but once they are put away its like i'm able to breathe again!

Also, I'm pretty good at making a house/apartment (in my case the latter) a true HOME. Its a pride factor that when you come into my home you FEEL at home. In a kick-off-your-shoes, grab-yourself-a-drink, watch-netflix-play-games kind of way.

5. Name one good deed you did that went unseen.

Every Christmas we do one big good deed...our favorite to do is to leave a giant tip ($50) for our waiter/waitress at a restaurant.

6. What hobbies do you have that you don't mention on your blog?

That I dont mention? Hm...i love reading. Pretty sure i could live on my couch and read forever.
I also LOVE to bake. So much so, that for my wedding a bunch of my friends gave me cook books, cupcake books, and about 5 muffin pans. And you know what? I use them all!
Jace and I have become Netflix/Hulu junkies...we LOVE our TV shows (once upon a time, castle, NCIS, Psych...and biggest loser. (guilty pleasure!!)
