Random happenings and ten things about me.......

I feel like such a bad blogger, lately. I promise to be present more but it's going to be kind of hard. The last time we "talked" I told you about my conflicted emotions of getting a job.

Well, I got the job!! I was and am still so excited about it. That right there tells me I am ready for this. It's only going to be part time and they are willing to work with me on my schedule. :) Such a blessing and much needed for all of us. :) However, I am definitely going to have less free time and the time that I do will be (mostly) devoted to my family. I am still of course planning on blogging because I love it and I love you guys. I guess I will just be a little (more) inconsistent.

With that being said let's move right along! The lovely Kerry over at It's The Little Things.... tagged me!

I am supposed to share with you ten things about me that you don't already know. This might be kind of if I repeat myself with something you already know, just pretend I didn't. ;)

1.) I went to school to be a nail technician. I loved doing nails, but what I didn't love was the cost of schooling, the lack of teaching and the lack of support from the school itself. I quit halfway through the program because I felt my money wasn't being well spent.

2.) I had two pet rats when I was a child; baby and Sunny.

3.) I love couponing and rarely shop without them!

4.) I had a reoccuring dream all through childhood about fleeing from cops up a mountain on a donkey with my Dad. I fell off the donkey and was drug behind. Weird, I know!

5.) I have a mild purse obsession. I say mild, but my husband would tell you something different. ;)

6.) I don't know how to french braid and it frustrates the crap out of me!

7.) I have a scar on the side of my face near my left eye where I fell on a propane tank when I tripped over a trailer hitch. I was playing tag and didn't watch where I was going.

8.) I struggle with unexplained vertigo. It comes and goes and sometimes lasts for days at a time. Usually only affects me when laying down or leaning down and turning my head from side to side. Not fun. Makes me totally nauseous too. :(

9.) I didn't like popcorn or almonds until this year.

10.) I love seafood.....crab, lobster, clams, oysters, you name it. Unfortunately, it doesn't love me anymore. About 8 years ago I developed an allergy. :( Now, I can't eat it at all. Worst part is that I know what I am missing out on.

What are some things that I don't know about you?!


  1. How bizarre you became allergic to it!!

    I agree with the cost of schooling , I went to school for hair and it was so much!

  2. So where will you be working, congrats!!!

    Have you ever thought of doing nails on the side for extra cash?
    Number 9....interesting! They are all interesting!!! Fun to learn;)

  3. Congrats on getting the job!!! :) I'm so happy for you!

    I loved learning all of those things about you!!!

  4. this is an awesome blog, love the fact that you are also afflicted with the mild purse obsession syndrome lol.

  5. Ashley, Congratulations on the job! I am so happy for you and was hoping and praying to read this post soon! :)
    You will be awesome at balancing it all...I know it!
    And I loved your ten things. Your dream cracked me up. I used to have one too when I was younger. I would be trick or treating in my nani's neighborhood. And I would go across the st and a gorilla (a real one would answer the door) and hand me a banana. LOL
    I hope you had a fabulous wkend. I am off to catch up on your new posts!

  6. Oh wow I just learned so much about you Ashley that I didn't know like you just started eating popcorn? What!!?? Lol
    And that is terrible that you developed an allergy to the foods you love most, that's gotta suck!!
    Good on you for getting the job, I hope you will be very happy there. Understandably you will be much busier, we aren't going anywhere :) And you owned two pet rats?...seriously? Eeew Lol
    Have a fantastic day xoxo
