Oh, How Pinteresting & Truths About Me

Yesterday, my girl, Candice, tagged me for Truths About Me.
It was a little hard to think of things I haven't already shared with y'all but eventually I came up with six.
Here we go!

one: I get addicted to TV shows reallyyyyy fast. As in, someone will tell me about a show, I'll watch the first episode & if I love it then I'll spend the next three days on Netflix watching episode after episode until I'm all caught up. Some of my favorites are Dexter, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Grey's Anatomy, The Walking Dead, The Bachelor/Bachelorette & Big Brother just to name a few. If you don't already watch those, DO IT. (and thank me later!)

two: I am currently unemployed. I got laid off almost two months ago and I haven't found anything yet and it's driving me CRAZY! The first couple of days it was nice to not have to wake up and go to work, but now I just feel lazy & bored pretty much all the time. I try to keep myself busy as much as possible. I can't wait to find a new job and get back to work. 
Never thought I'd say that!

three: Even though I really want to be a teacher, a part of me has always thought about becoming a wedding planner! I love everything about weddings & I know I would be great at it. There are two things keeping me from it... One is that I have a passion for kids & I know that if I'm a teacher I will wake up everyday and actually want to go to work and two is that wedding planning is such a hard thing to break into. You really have to be established before someone would trust you to plan their wedding and I wouldn't even begin to know how to get myself established!

four: Darren & I go to the movies at least once a week. WE LOVE MOVIES! Seriously. If there is a movie out that looks even remotely good, we've probably seen it. Our families know how often we go to the movies & last year for Christmas we got over $200 in movie gift cards alone. 
They were all gone by the end of February. 
Sorry, I'm not sorry.

^^the last three movies we went to see^^

five: I love giving gifts. It's one of my favorite things ever. It makes me happy to get something for someone that I know is going to make them happy! I love putting gift baskets together, I love being creative with gift ideas & I love wrapping them & making them all pretty. 
Honestly, I love giving gifts more than I love getting gifts. I'm weird, I know.
Anybody want a gift?? ha

six: On the other hand, I love getting mail! I check the mail every day & hope there's something in there for me haha. I love when I get my Birchbox & my Glam Bag in the mail every month, or something I've ordered online, but I especially love getting a letter/note/card of some sort! So next time any of you feel like writing a letter or buying/making a cute card, send it my way! haha :)

I'm tagging Allison & Kelly!

Now that y'all know a little bit more about me, let's get on to my favorite pins for the week!

Linking up with Shanna & Michelle!


  1. ahhhh we are way to alike!! I literally get so hooked into TV shows (espically if I get to watch the entire seasons on Netflix) that I will literally get depressed after... as if I am actually involved in their life....

    I love love everything wedding related & kinda obsessed with the US postal service! (I worked at my college mailroom while I was in college!)

    Have a great day Kristen! Loved reading this post!

  2. LOVE that matte grey nail polish and that dream bathroom.


    have a great wednesday!

  3. Those are 3 shows that we LOVE too!!

    I also LOVE getting the mail. I get to go through the mail at work and its honestly one of the best parts of my day!

  4. OMG I would love to plan weddings too. I am currently looking for a teaching job as well. I also get addicted to TV shows and watch them on Netflix back to back.

  5. I am just like you with the shows!! Dexter is one of our faves and we were Netflix addicts for the first 3 seasons!! Brothers & Sisters is another one that I finished in 4 days.. ALL of the seasons. I was home sick with Strep, so I needed rest and TV. :) haha


  6. Do y'all watch The Following?! If not, you need to start! It's a little over halfway through season #1 and is SOOOO good! Joey and I both love it so I bet you/Darren will love it too! And I had no idea you were unemployed! Fingers crossed that you find a job asap! What about a professional dog sitter?! Wrinkles would seriously love that - you would get to spend all day with him and his new puppy friends!

  7. I totally get addicted to TV shows super fast too! blowing through Mad Men for the second time right now before the new season premiers :)

    have a great day! xoxo, Amy

  8. I feel the exact same way about wedding planning! I'm going to school to be a teacher, but wedding planning was a close runner up as a career choice. I can't get enough of wedding shows :)

  9. Hey, just found your blog and I'm your newest follower!

    I LOVE me some Dexter and Walking Dead. Did you see the season finale of Walking Dead? I have to say, I'm somewhat disappointed but expected some of it.

    I wanted to be a wedding planner for a while too! Then I looked into it and realised I probably wouldn't be able to deal with crazy, irrational brides lol.

    I used to *love* getting mail, until I started getting bills. Now all I ever get are bills and flyers. So not fun!

    Great blog! :)


  10. love love love the matte nail polish!

  11. I am the exact same with tv shows! I haven't watched any of the ones you mentioned, but I get crazy addicted! I watched a whole season of a show in 2 days this week, haha. And I love getting mail, too!

  12. I found you through Ashley's blog! I'm a Houston blogger too!! :)

  13. I looove that mint green dress!

  14. I'm a gift giver too...but like you I love getting things in the mail, lol!
