It’s My Birthday!


It’s my birthday! Today I celebrate 29 years of life. I can’t believe all of the things that have happened in my life so far. I never thought that I would be where I am today but I am thankful for it all. I am so fortunate to have a loving family and amazing friends. I am also so fortunate to have this blog and all of you! 

To celebrate my special day, I thought that it would be fun to share 29 random things about me that you may or may not have known:

  1. My favorite color is pink. (like you couldn’t tell)
  2. My favorite food is a cheeseburger. (a real one not the fast food kind)
  3. I love to read.
  4. My husband and I met when I was 17. I was in high school and he was in college. We’ve been together ever since.
  5. In August, my husband and I will celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary.
  6. My husband and I have moved 3 times since we’ve been living together. (soon to be 4)
  7. I watch the tv show Chopped religiously.
  8. My family is from a small country in South America called Guyana. It’s one of the few non-Spanish speaking countries in South America
  9. Since I was a teenager, I have had 7 jobs (2 were actual careers)
  10. I worked at an investment bank for 4 years before becoming a teacher.
  11. I taught preschool for 2 1/2 years before becoming a stay at home mom.
  12. I didn’t learn to drive until I was 20 (and it was my husband who taught me)
  13. I learned how to cook by watching the Food Network.
  14. The only celebrities that I have ever met were both chefs (Bobby Flay and Robert Irvine)
  15. I collect Hello Kitty beanie babies.
  16. I have a rather large Barbie Doll collection. (they’re all at my mom’s house)
  17. I have anxiety in certain social situations.
  18. I love to sing and can memorize the lyrics of almost any song by only hearing it twice.
  19. I play the alto saxophone.
  20. I like to write my own short stories.
  21. My favorite fruit is watermelon.
  22. I am a makeup addict. (I have a very large aluminum case filled with makeup)
  23. I am also addicted to Starbucks (my favorite drink is the Caramel Macchiato, both iced and hot)
  24. I LOVE doughnuts. I could eat a ton in one sitting.
  25. I’ve only left the country once and it was to go to Canada.
  26. I hate the taste and smell of beer. (Tequila is not my friend either)
  27. My two favorite animals are monkeys and owls.
  28. Sometimes I like to play with my daughter’s toys more than she does.
  29. And the last thing…I’m a total neat freak. I like to have a place for everything and everything in it’s place.

So I hope that you don’t think I’m too weird and that you’ve gotten to know me a little bit more. Now I’m off to celebrate my birthday by not doing anything for the next few hours before I have to head to class.
