Sequins and Sea Breezes: Gonna Party Like It's My Birthday

Gonna Party Like It's My Birthday


Because it is!! Happy Thursday everyone and happy birthday to me! Even though I usually don't post on Thursday, I thought it would be fun to post today and share some facts about me that you may or may not know (depending on how well you know me and how long you've been reading the blog). I love getting to read a little more about other bloggers I follow so I thought my birthday would be a great time to share some random facts about me while I'm out sipping champs... or tequila. Who knows? ;)

1 // I was born on June 29th but my due date was actually July 4th. 
2 // I was born in Cincinnati, Ohio but moved to Florida when I was in high school. I've lived in Florida now a lot longer than I lived in Ohio so I definitely consider myself a Florida girl and wouldn't move back for anything but I try to go back regularly to visit. In the summer of course.
3 // I love doing adventurous things and I've never met a roller coaster I wouldn't go on (even after getting stuck at the very top of Sheikra for 2 hours, you can read about that fiasco here) but I am afraid of heights. You can't pay me enough to walk over to the edge of a crazy steep drop off but ask me to jump out of a plane? No problem.
4 // Despite being super petite (only 5'1" and about 100 lbs), I will eat most people under the table. I'm the worst at all you can eat brunches because I will literally keep going back until I can't move... which is exactly what I'm doing to celebrate my birthday on Saturday. Wish me luck. Kerri and Kate, feel free to stop me when I try to go back for 5ths...
5 // I love to travel but I hate the process of traveling. Getting to the airport and getting through checkpoint security gives me so much anxiety but once I'm on board the plane I'm perfectly fine.
6 // I've been to 23 states, Mexico, the Bahamas, Grand Cayman, Jamaica, Alberta Canada, Switzerland, France, Germany and England (multiple times).
{Yes, I know my ears look huge here and no, it is not an illusion. LOL}
7 // I graduated with a degree in Communications and I've been in Digital Marketing for almost 10 years.
8 // I absolutely love animals (my dog is pretty much my life) but penguins are my favorite after him. 
9 //   By the water is my happy place. I prefer the beach but I'd settle for a lake or river. There is nothing more relaxing to me than planting my butt in the sand and listening to the waves crash in.
10 // The first "crush" I can ever remember was David Bowie as Jareth in Labyrinth. I still have a soft spot when I hear "Everything I've done, I've done for you. I move the stars for no one" or when I hear the song "As the World Falls Down". *sigh*
11 // On my downtime I love to read. I could spend all day in a hammock with a good book and be more than perfectly content.
12 // When I was in middle school I decided to join the school band. When deciding on what instrument I was going to play several people tried pushing me towards the flute or the clarinet because it "fit my size" but that just made me rebel so I decided to play the alto saxophone. Despite the fact it was almost as big as I was, I was actually really good and ended up being first chair and winning several state awards. Of course I gave it up to eventually be a cheerleader...*insert eye roll here*
13 // Despite having a "fashion" blog, I don't consider myself "fashionable" at all. My style is mostly laid back and casual. Even though every outfit you see on my blog is an outfit I wore out somewhere at sometime, you can find me most often wearing jeans and a tee or tank top.
14 // I was prom princess but I went to my senior prom dateless thanks to my boyfriend at the time being a complete jerk and taking his ex. For anyone wondering, don't worry I dumped him.
15 // The first roller coaster I ever rode was the Vortex at King's Island in Ohio. I was immediately addicted but wasn't able to ride a lot of the "scarier" roller coasters because of how small I was.
16 // I love history, art and architecture, especially European, even though I hated my history classes in school.
17 // I love spicy food. When I eat Thai I always order it Thai hot and I always get looks like I'm crazy but it is so good.
18 // I have an obsession with sunglasses. Like borderline unhealthy obsession. Classic Ray-Ban's are by far my favorite and one could ask "how many pairs of Ray-Ban Wayfarers or Aviators does one really need?" and my answer would be "all of them".
19 //I hate doing cardio but I love working out. It's such a great release for stress and tension. And when I absolutely have to do cardio I love getting outside and running. You can't pay me to run on a treadmill but I'll begrudgingly run outside.
20 // I broke my arm pretty bad as a kid which left me double jointed in the elbow/wrist. It's hard to describe what I can do but let's just say it's a great party trick and people always try it after they see me do it...and they all fail ;)
 {Here's some what of an example. Doesn't it look like my elbow is on the front of my arm? Oh and can we talk about this throwback gem for a minute LOL}

Alright, that was a bit longer than I originally planned so if you stuck with me, YAY, I appreciate it! And if I'm absent in the blogging world today, it's because I'm out celebrating my birthday and since it's a holiday weekend (and a continuation of my birthday celebration) I'm going to take a little blogging break and I'll be back next week! Hope everyone has a fabulous and safe 4th of July weekend!
