Welcome to my blog where I give you a peek into how I live my healthy, happy life!


23 things you might not have known about me

Hi guys! Happy Wednesday! I am super happy that tomorrow is the last day of the work week for me, so I wanted to share this fun little survey of things you might not have known about me (or maybe you did!) A couple of bloggers I have followed for a long time did the same survey a few years ago, and I am just now stealing their idea :) I hope you enjoy getting to know me a little better!

I’m happiest when I’m at the beach.

… especially if that beach is on St. John.


I’ve always wanted to move to a tropical place. 

My family and I collect seaglass.



I am a terrible dancer and anything else that involves choreography or coordination!

My first job was at a tanning salon. 

I could probably never work again and keep myself busy at all times.

I was born on the same day as Freddie Prinze Jr. (and I used to love him)


My all-time favorite movie is The Lucky One. 

I’m still mad that I didn't join a sorority in college.

I met my husband when he lived across the street!

I always knew I wanted to be a teacher.


I’m not afraid to say no to things I don't want to do. 

I make the best shopping lists!

I have almost no patience when I want something!

I always cry when I am really overwhelmed. 

I’m a believer in soulmates. 


I spent a semester abroad in Glasgow, Scotland. 


I wish I could freeze time. 

At 5, I was deeply in love with The Little Mermaid.


I believe if everyone worried about themselves, the world would be a better place.

I can’t stand being around sick people and germs, especially in crowded places. 

Whenever Modern Family is on, I’ll watch it.

What about you guys!? Answer one (or two or three or as many as you want!) of the questions in the comments so I can get to know YOU better!
