I'm 28 years old and currently live in Indiana.
I'm a trivia junkie and love all sorts of random knowledge.
I love being Catholic.
I grew up in suburban Atlanta.
I'm a proud graduate of the University of Georgia.
I studied Advertising and Child & Family Development.
I joined AmeriCorps after college and worked for Habitat for Humanity in Jacksonville, FL. I painted. A lot.
After AmeriCorps, I moved to Chesapeake/Virginia Beach/Norfolk, VA. Yes, I lived in all of them.
I've had 22 different roommates since I was 18. There's only two of them I'd never talk to again.
I most recently volunteered at a place that provides financial assistance and education to the military. I taught a budgeting class to expectant parents. I loved it.
I married my husband B on October 3, 2009.
I'm half-Lebanese and have the eyebrows to prove it.
I love cats but my husband is allergic.
We had our first child on January 26, 2012. Her name is Cora, and she is awesome.
I've been to 47 states. Cora has been to 11 already.
My husband is a commissioned officer in the United States Navy. He used to be on a submarine, then did a shore tour in Pensacola, FL (no submarines anywhere near). As of September 1, 2012, he left Active Duty and became a full civilian. We have now traded the submarines and sandy beaches for the cornfields and snow of Fort Wayne, Indiana. A few months later, he joined the Active Reserves with a 3-year commitment. Time will tell if this is a good decision for our family, but so far we like it.
I refuse to start a post with "Wow, it's been a while." I think it's the worst opening ever because I know no one is sitting around with bated breath wondering why I haven't posted.
Not enough? Here are some more random facts about me.
