So today I'm linking up with Becky at From Mrs. to Mama.
This link up is basically a *411 on, well, yourself. A quick way to introduce myself to other bloggers. Becky has made a list of questions for each blogger to answer. I chose 6.
So without further adieu.....
1. How long have you been blogging? And what got you started on blogging?
For the past year or so I have really gotten into reading blogs. Fashion blogs, home decor blogs, mommy blogs, pregnancy blogs. All of it. One day I realized, ya know we have a lot of friends and family across the country that would probably like to keep tabs on what we are up to since we moved back to Illinois. We also have a lot going on right now (building a house, trying to start a family) that I kind of wanted to be able to journal all that's going on in our lives. So after I finally got over the whole "nobody is going to read this darn thing/I'm probably wasting my time" thoughts I just decided to give it a shot even if mom and grandma are my only followers! Ha!
2. Did you go to college? If so where, and what did you study?
I attended Saint Louis University in well, obviously, St. Louis, Missouri. I graduated from there in 2007 with my Masters in Physical Therapy. This is also where I met Jason. We both were studying Physical Therapy and were study buddies and close friends for about 4 years before we started dating!
3. Where have you traveled?
My husband and I have done quite a bit of traveling. After graduating from PT school we worked for a traveling therapy company that relocated us all across the country every three months. We absolutely loved it. We have met some great friends and people all across the country. We have lived/worked every where from Los Angeles, Miami, Dallas, San Antonio, to even a few small towns in Kentucky and Texas. I wouldn't trade those three years for anything. But after awhile we made the decision to settle down, "grow up", and move back to my hometown in Southern Illinois to be close to family. We have also been on a few great vacations to London, Paris, Rome and were married in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. I did a weekly blog post called "Tuesday Travels" where I posted fun pics from each of our trips if you would like to check that out!
4. What are your 3 biggest pet peeves?
When people leave the shower curtain open after they have showered, men who leave toilet seats up, when the toilet paper roll unrolls for the back instead of the front (ok why are all of my pet peeves in the bathroom?! Weird!) AND when people say I sneeze funny. Yes I know I sneeze funny, yes its obnoxiously loud and high-pitched, and NO you don't have to comment on it every time I do it. Oh and when parents let their children hang on the second story railings in the mall. I think I have a mini heart attack every time I see that. I mean come on! Am I the only person who can't stop imaging these poor little ones plummeting to their deaths! Pull them away from the rails!!! OOPs that was way more than three, huh?
5. If you could have a $10,000 shopping spree to one store, which store would it be?
I have a small obsession with West Elm lately. We are in the process of picking out furniture for our new house, which is under construction, and I sort of wish I could just pay the West Elm fairy to decorate it all.
6. Show us a picture from high school or college.
|College= Cardinals games :)|

So there it is.... the 411 on me! Thank you to Becky for hosting. I love checking in on your blog and seeing the cute pics of your little one!
