Regret…

Regret. A six letter word that can hold so much power over one’s life. I won’t lie, there are many things that I have done, but more that I  haven’t done that I regret in life and it seems as the time goes on, more and more regrets build up. Last night, I went to support my friends as they performed in their show choir concert. For many of them, this would be their last show choir performance as a DCC student and it was bittersweet watching them. From the moment I arrived, I felt a surge of regret hit me. I haven’t seen my friends in months and the first encounter with a few of them was nothing but awkward. One friend in particular who was like a brother to me, greeted me with a hug but the sense of friendship we always once had seemed estranged. As we talked about our hectic lives, I noticed the extreme difference between the two of us. He would talk about performing in shows, organizing drama club events, getting into his next college and passing his music classes while I talked about working, finishing up my online classes, wedding planning and trying to find a home. You know, adult things. From there, the conversation got awkward and I was relieved to know the show would be starting soon so it was time to take my seat. However, at that moment I realized how much I wish I was waiting with them all to perform as well. I had a choice this past spring when it came to my last semester at DCC. I could take actual classes, continue to be in show choir and finish off my year by my friends side or I could take online classes so I could focus on work and making money for Tom and my future. That and a mixture of physical and mental health problems, seemed to make the decision for me much harder. Well, in the end you know which one I chose and up until last night, I thought I made the right choice. But last night, watching them on that stage, it hit me that I should be up there too. When the show was over, I greeted my friends with huge hugs while I held back the tears. Didn’t help that their last song was “you will be found” from Dear Evan Hansen. Though it was awkward before the show, I was happy to see things seemed to go back to normal for me and Christian. Him giving me three hugs and a kiss on the cheek just showed me that though we don’t hang out anymore, that strong friendship is still there. We also agreed we need to hang out this summer and unlike every time before, this time we need to follow through with our plans. Though some of my friends welcomed me with open arms, others completely ignored me and didn’t say a word to me. That’s what hurts the most. Some of these people I was so close with just a year ago and now, they act like I’m nothing more than a stranger. But, I mean that’s life right? If you don’t fit in and do what they do, than you’re a nothing, a nobody, That wasn’t more clear than last night. I left the school feeling depressed, regretful and like a failure. I couldn’t help but think about all the decisions I have made when it came to college. College is supposed to be a pivotal time in someone’s life. When I was younger, I always thought of my college years.You know, knowing exactly what major I wanted to study, meeting lifelong friends who actually care about you, participating in a ton of on campus activities and clubs. But I also knew at a very young age I wanted to become a wife and a mother in my early twenties. When Tom and I got together, we had talked about going off to college together. Both of us went to community college but we always talked about going away to college together to get our Bachelors. But as life continues, that thought grew more and more distant. I was content at DCC. I had made wonderful friends, was a part of the show choir and drama club, and was studying performing arts. I was happy. But I didn’t know how to balance that and working enough to build my future so I gave all that up. To make matters even worse, it took my fourth year at DCC and going to therapy to realize I never should have stopped majoring in psychology. Just another regret to add to the pile of others. I keep trying to see the silver lining, the positive that I can pull but it’s very hard. If I had just doubled major in performing arts and psychology from the start and continued to be active in drama and show choir with my friends I would be graduating alongside my friends this month with two associate degrees. Instead, I’m not even participating in graduation because I feel there is no celebration in just a general studies degree after four years of college. I always try to have a message or lesson within these type of blog posts but the only one I can really pull out of this is, just follow your heart. You’re going to regret the things you never did way more than something you did that turned out to be wrong. If I could, I would rewind time and actually enjoy my college years. It’s too late now…my friends will be going off to a new four-year school and who knows how many I will even keep in touch with… :/  So I need to just accept the descion I made and move past it…I just wish it was as easy to do as it is to say..

 

Well, until next time my darlings,

Feeling like you’re in a constant dream

Do you know what it is like to feel like you’re constantly in a dream?

To look in a mirror and have no connection with the face looking back at you?

Can you imagine the frustration one might feel when nothing around them even feels real?

I do.

I know the feeling because I suffer from that feeling all the time.

The feeling of being in a fog or trapped inside a fishbowl, shielded from the rest of the world. And no matter how hard you try to tell your brain you’re real and this is real, it doesn’t make a difference.

The people around you, strangers and loved ones alike all look just a little off now.

Your surroundings have a dream-like aura to them and you feel like you’re going crazy.

You just want to lock yourself in your room, away from the rest of the world until you start to feel normal again.

Lights seem much brighter than usual, causing your eyes and head to hurt.

Your hands don’t even resemble your hands anymore but instead hands of a stranger you once knew so well but now can’t recognize.

You look in the mirror but the tired face looking back at you doesn’t look like your own.

No, you don’t recognize those brown eyes filled with emotion.

It’s like looking at a photograph of someone you don’t know yet deep down you know that it’s you.

You start to fact check yourself within your mind.

Stating your name, your birth date, your fiance’s name, your future wedding date.

You begin to panic because even though you’ve answered those questions just fine now, you’re scared one day you won’t remember.

You don’t feel like a person anymore but instead a robot, going through the motions.

Your voice even sounds weird and the words your mouth produce feel programmed and unrecognizable.

Living like this isn’t living, it’s just existing.

You wonder if you’ll ever feel normal again and as the days turn into weeks, and the weeks into months, you start to fear that this time this feeling won’t leave and you’ll be trapped as a living zombie for the rest of your life.

You want to smile and be happy but you can’t shake the feeling.

You cry and scream out but how can anyone understand?

If you even told anyone they would think you were crazy!

How can one not feel real? How can one not feel a connection to their self?

Yet, that is how I feel.

Looking in from the outside on my life.

Feeling trapped within my mind and not recognizing me

All while constantly wondering, will I ever break free?

10 tips/advice when planning your wedding

pexels-photo-256737.jpegHey everyone! As many of you know, I’ve been planning my wedding now for about 9 months and within those 9 months, I’ve learned different things that I thought would be fun to share with all of you since today marks 6 months until my wedding! Being a bride on a budget, I know first hand how stressful planning your dream wedding can be and though I’m sure I will learn even more within these next 6 months, for now, here are my top ten wedding planning tips/advice!

  1. Don’t be afraid to have a Friday or Sunday wedding

When Tom and I first started discussing what date we wanted to become married, we were only looking at Saturdays within our chosen month. However, once we began visiting venues, it was clear having a Saturday night wedding would not only cost us a lot more money but also make our minimum guest count rise and create stricter time boundaries. For example, one venue’s cost per plate rose over $20 for a Saturday night wedding and required no less than 150 guests. We also would have to have our ceremony start at 6 meaning it would be dark outside by the time we even started photos. Despite this, I was still against having our wedding on a different day of the week because I was worried my family would be upset. However, once Tom and I found our perfect venue, it was clear to me that getting married on a sunday was the best option overall. Unlike Saturday, I would be the only wedding that day meaning we could have our ceremony start whenever we wanted. The price per plate would be under a hundred and we only had to have at least 100 guests, which with a guest list of 130 wouldn’t be a problem. I won’t lie, when I announced our wedding date, I had multiple family members get upset over the fact it was a sunday. This bothered me but in the end I realized this, the people who matter in my life and who love me and Tom are going to be there no matter what. This isn’t just some party, it’s my wedding and there is enough notice in advance for family and friends to take off of work if need be and for student to let their teacher know they won’t be there the day after the wedding. So if having a Saturday wedding just isn’t what you want, either due to money or other reason, than don’t have a Saturday wedding! I promise you your wedding will be just as if not even more amazing on a Friday or Sunday as it would have been on a Saturday and the people who matter in your life will be there no matter what.

 

  1. Listen to your partner Remember it’s his day to!

Shortly after getting engaged I noticed a lot of people, especially vendors, always referring to the wedding being the brides day. As the bride, it is tempting to do everything how you want and not think of anyone else. However, this isn’t just your day, it’s his wedding day too. Some partners might want their future wife to decide everything and if that’s the case, than that is fine but there are many partners out there who want to have a say in their special day too. It’s important to remember this day if about the two of you and therefore decisions about this day should be made together. You might be surprised with the ideas your future husband comes up with. For instance, I didn’t think Tom wanted anything to do with creating our centerpieces but when he approached me with these amazing ideas, I couldn’t believe how perfect they were. It meant a lot to me that he took the time to think of our wedding centerpieces and it warms my heart knowing he wants to be a part of our wedding planning process. By listening to your partner and sharing ideas with each other, it will make the whole process a lot more fun and relaxing because everything isn’t just on your shoulders. You guys are about to become a team in life, what better way to begin than planning the most special day of your lives together.

 

  1. Remember this is yours and your fiance’s special day, no one else’s!

Going off of the previous advice, this is honestly the most important tip/advice of them all! When planning your wedding, what matters is you and your fiance, that is it. I can’t tell you how many times so far I have had family members, friends, even bridal party members make comments on how we are doing things. Since we are having a Disney themed wedding, Toms brother loves to make fun of our theme and compare it to a child’s birthday party. At first, this was really upsetting but I just kept telling myself that it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks, this was the wedding theme that both me and my fiance wanted. I am a Disney-aholic and I have known for years I was going to have a Disney themed wedding. Tom was on board with it and that was all that mattered. People are going to criticize or make you doublethink decisions  you make for your wedding but if those decisions make you and you future husband happy and it’s what you guys want, than nothing anyone else says should change that. You’re only going to have one wedding, why make it anything but what the two of you want.

 

  1. Don’t be afraid to speak up but be polite about it

Shows like Bridezilla, though hilarious to watch, can make a bride feel like they can’t speak up when things aren’t going how they pictured. This is not true. As I stated before, this is your wedding day so if something is happening that you don’t want, you need to say something. The thing to remember though is be polite about it. Don’t scream and yell that you’re not getting your way but instead nicely bring it up. If your bridesmaids like a dress but you really want them in a different dress, politely explain that to them. They aren’t going to be mad at you and if they are just kindly remind them that this is your wedding day and that if they were getting married, you would wear what they want you to wear. If the truly are your friend, they are going to understand this. Disagreements are going to happen but as long as your nice about things, than stating the fact that this is your wedding and standing up for yourself is not a bad thing.

 

  1. Don’t let vendors intimidate you or pressure you into booking them before you are ready.

I wish I had known this before meeting with vendors. Vendors main goal is to get you to book them and they are going to be as pushy as they can to get you to sign that contract as soon as possible. When I won a free engagement photo shoot at a bridal show, I was thrilled to meet with the photographer to discuss the details of our shoot. However, when we met with him, all he wanted to discuss was being our wedding photographer. Book after book he showed us and kept talking about the packages and prices and the awards his company has won. I originally wanted to wait till after our engagement shoot to decide but by using the scare antic that by than our wedding date could be booked, we wound up booking with him that night. Though our engagement photos came out great, we did run into multiple problems that now worry me for our wedding day. I wish we would have waited and met with other people before signing the contract. Photography is very important to me so I just hope that come our wedding photos, we don’t have any issues. When going into vendor appointments, make it clear from the start you are just looking and comparing right now. They aren’t going to be happy with this and will still push you to book but you need to stay strong until you are 100% sure this is the vendor you want to work with.

 

  1. Don’t be ashamed to buy things that say Bride or have anything to do with being engaged/getting married  

Listen, you are only going to be a bride once (hopefully), so have fun and enjoy it! Recently, I have bought multiple products that say Bride or anything to do with getting married. I’ve had people tell me it’s dumb to have these things and that it’s obnoxious but honestly I don’t care. Years from now, I will still have these things to remember the crazy wedding planning process and maybe even pass them on to my own daughter when the time comes for her to get married. So buy those bride pajamas and “I can’t keep calm, I’m getting married cup”, this is your only chance to do so!

 

  1. Go to Bridal shows

When I went to my first bridal show, I was so overwhelmed because at the time, we didn’t even have our date set. However, I had a ton of fun, learned a lot, and even won free stuff! Bridal shows are a chance to meet different vendors, try some yummy food, and just enjoy the fact that you are getting married! In total, I went to three bridal shows and I enjoyed each one of them! We have all our vendors now but honestly if another bridal show pops up, I will most definitely go anyway.

 

  1. Have an engagement party!

So this obviously happens before any of the rest of this, possibly before you even have a date picked but it’s still important! An engagement party or get together is a chance to celebrate your engagement with your friends and family and pretty much start off the entire wedding planning process. An engagement party is also a great place to announce your bridesmaids and make them feel special. At mine, I had made boxes up for each of my girls that contained a hand-painted glass, bridesmaid sunglasses, hand sanitizer and other little things and presented it to them one by one a long with a short speech. I felt it made the whole thing more personable and was so happy I had a chance to do something like that in front of my family and friends. Wedding planning is also going to be stressful so having one fun party to celebrate your engagement before diving into wedding planning also is a great way to prepare for that stress.

 

  1. It’s okay to want to dress up and look nice for your bridal shower

For some reason, most bridal, like baby showers, are surprises for the bride. The bride isn’t allowed to know when her shower is, where her shower is, or even help plan anything to do with her shower. Now i’m someone who doesn’t like to be unprepared and enjoys looking my best at family gatherings, especially one centered around myself. I told my mom and maid of honor that if they must keep the date a secret either tell me the morning of or make sure I think I am going somewhere else where I put makeup on and do my hair nice. I also told them I want to pick out a dress and if it must be a surprise, make sure to have the dress there for me to change into. Some of my family and friends were upset that I felt like this but I look at my bridal shower just as everything else, this is my day. If I don’t look how I want on this day, overall I will enjoy it less than if I did. This is just me and that is okay. They need to understand this and if you are like this as well, just know it is okay to feel this way and your family and friends need to obey your wishes and if they must keep it a surprise, do it in a way these wishes are still met.

 

  1. Wedding planning is stressful but it also should be fun and memorable so enjoy the process and document everything.

Planning your wedding should be the most stressful/amazing process ever. This is the day you have been dreaming of for years. This is the day that you will be marrying your best friend. When you think of the months leading up to this day do you want to remember being stressed and crying because things aren’t going perfect or do you want to look back and remember the joy you felt when you booked things for the first time. That feeling you got when tried on your wedding dress for the first time and just knew it was the one. If you understand that everything is not going to be perfect and that’s okay, the pressure of planning your wedding decreases and you can actually enjoy the process. My last piece of advice for you is truly to document everything with your wedding planning process because years from now, you will be thankful you did.

 

Well that’s it for now. Even writing these I thought of a few more but as we get closer I will do another post similar to this one for you all. I hope you enjoyed these 10 tips/advice for planning your own wedding and maybe even learned something. If, when reading this, you thought of any more that might be good for me to know, please comment them below! 🙂

 

Until next time my darlings,

Simple date night dinner recipe idea

Hello my darlings! I hope you all had a wonderful week! Since my grandma works on Friday nights, that is usually Tom and my at home date nights since we have the whole house to ourselves for a few hours. Normally, Tom and I will cook dinner together but tonight I decided I wanted to make dinner for him all on my own. Now let me just inform you guys that I have never made dinner completely by myself before so to say I was nervous about it is an understatement. Still, 6 months from tomorrow I will officially be a wife so cooking dinner on my own for my family is something I need to be able to do so why not start now! Well, I am happy to report not only was dinner completely edible, it was actually delicious and I didn’t burn the house down! Tom even said that the baked potatoes I made were the best he has ever eaten! So for tonight’s blog post, I thought I would inform you all of the dinner I made and how I made it so maybe you can recreate it for your own family one day! 🙂

So to start off, I decided yesterday I wanted to make honey BBQ marinated thin pork chops with baked potatoes and vegetables. I knew we had potatoes and vegetables at my grandmas so I just picked up some pork chops from the store on my way home last night. Now I don’t like the really thick pork chops. Instead, I prefer the thin ones so I picked up just two thin pork chops from my local Tops.

To begin the actual cooking process, I started with the potatoes.

  1. I preheated the oven to 300 degrees F before washing the potatoes. After rinsing them off, I placed them on a baking sheet that I already covered with tinfoil. Once on the sheet, I took my fork and I poked each of my potatoes (four in total) with my fork 5 times. Next, I smothered them with olive oil and salt before placing them in the oven and setting a timer for 30 minutes.
  2. While the potatoes began to bake, I took my pork chops and placed them into a cooking dish. Next, I covered each pork chop with olive oil, salt, and finally the honey BBQ sauce on each side.
  3. After the 30 minutes were up, I placed the pork chops into the oven next to the potatoes. I raised the oven temperature to 350 degrees F and set the kitchen timer for another 30 minutes.
  4. While that cooked, I put the frozen mixed vegetables in a pan and set it near the stove. Once about 20 minutes went by, I put the pan on one of the burners and set it to 6.
  5. Once the timer went off, I took the potatoes out of the oven and slit each one of them open. I then stuffed each potato with butter and shredded cheddar cheese before placing them back into the oven.
  6. Once another 10 minutes went by, I took both the potatoes and the pork out of the oven. I also drained the vegetables before placing each food item on both Tom and my plate. Once I was done, it looked like this! 31404136_1886130448064058_5094390301833822208_o

And that’s it! Quick, easy and delicious dinner that took about an hour and 15 minutes in total to make. Obviously, you may want to add more BBQ sauce or even use different spices because not everyone has the same taste buds but for me, it was the perfect amount. I know some of you are probably wondering why I feel so accomplished at making such a simple dinner but it’s more the concept that I was able to do it all on my own. For some one with anxiety, being able to cook a full dinner without any help, is a huge accomplishment and one that I really am proud of! I hope you all enjoyed this post and if you do decide to recreate it, let me know how it turns out! I already know this is going to be one of my favorite date night dinners to make but I want to ask all of you, what is your favorite date night dinner? 🙂

Until next time my darlings,

I’m tired

I’m Tired

 

If you looked at me and asked how I was

I’d tell you the truth

I’d tell you i’m tired, though it’s no use

Because to you tired means sleepy

And though that is true

My tired has a ton of more meanings too

I’m tired of never being good enough no matter how hard I try

I’m tired of condescending people, secrets and lies

I’m tired of no one taking me seriously

Doctors, teachers and family only going by what they see

But they don’t know how I feel everyday

They don’t see the pain and suffering, though they think they may

I’m tired of my achy body and bones

I’m tired of being so sick and in pain, i’m forced to stay home

And miss out on all the fun and memories I could have made

Because I was too sick to go, or just to afraid

I’m tired of my anxiety always getting in the way

Making it difficult just to survive each and every day

I’m tired of my depression constantly bringing me down

I miss my smile and I hate this frown

I’m tired of my eyes burning from all of these tears

And i’m tired of all my irrational fears

I’m tired of my emotions never staying in my control

I’m tired of feeling broken, I just want to be whole

I’m tired of hurting the people I love again and again

I’m tired of pushing away all of my friends

I’m tired of school, of work, of home

I’m tired of feeling like I have no place to my own

I’m tired of never feeling understood

I’m tired of constantly feeling bad, I just want to feel good

My soul is tired, my body is too

And no amount of sleep can fix this it’s true

I’m tired of being tired all the time

Won’t someone please show me how to climb

Climb this mountain and get to the other side

Where my soul won’t be tired anymore and I can finally feel alive

So yea I’m tired but don’t you see

Tired has so many more meanings to me

5 tips/pieces of advice for wedding Save the dates!

Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend! Today has been nothing but getting things done for the wedding for me. After watching Bridezillas last night (yup another guilty pleasure reality TV show) I pretty much had a breakdown realizing how much stuff Tom and I still have to do for the wedding so decided to dedicate all of today to wedding planning. The biggest thing I got accomplished today was finally printing out address labels and putting our save the dates in envelopes to be sent out. Because of this, I thought for today’s blog post, I would post my 5 tips/ pieces of advice when it comes to Save the Dates for your wedding. So if you’d like to hear them, continue reading. 🙂

  1. Choose a Magnet instead of just a card

            This is my biggest piece of advice when it comes to deciding on your save the dates. When Tom and I discussed what type of save the date we wanted, I knew right away I wanted a magnet. Unlike a card, a magnet is less likely to be lost or misplaced because once your guest receives it, they will more than likely put it on their fridge. This also helps to make sure your guest doesn’t forget your special day because every time they go to get something out of the refrigerator, they are reminded of when your wedding day is.

  1.    Design your save the date with your partner

        Or at least ask them first if they want to be included in the design process. You’ll be surprised at just how much your husband wants to be included when it comes to wedding details. Tom and I actually wound up having two different save the dates because my mother and I had designed one quickly when she had gotten a coupon to get 5 free magnets from Shutterfly. She received this coupon four more times and each time she did, she got 5 more magnets. It wasn’t until we had 20 magnets that I actually showed Tom our design and to my surprise, he did not like them at all. Since it was about the time we needed to send out our save the dates, Tom and I decided to create a new save the date magnet and together we came up with the perfect one. It worked out well though because we decided to send some of our guests, especially the children who are invited, the ones my mother and I created and send the rest the ones that me and him made together. Since the ones my mom got were free, it really wasn’t a big deal but if you spend money on save the dates that you like and find out your partner doesn’t like them once they arrive, you could lose money and cause an unnecessary argument with your spouse to be.

  1.  Use Shutterfly (Not a sponsor!)

My mom and I are a fan of all Shutterfly products, especially their photo books, so when Tom and I had to get our save the dates, my mom immediately suggested we check out Shutterfly and I’m so happy we did. Shutterfly not only has a ton of different templates that are easily customizable but also have very reasonable prices. Shutterfly also constantly has deals going on and once you order from them once, they will start to send you multiple coupons for free and discounted products (minus the shipping). As a bride on a budget, I highly recommend Shutterfly for your save the dates as well as other Wedding stationary you may need. Below you will see both the save the dates we used and I will also include the link to Shutterfly for both of the templates at the end of this post in case you guys like them and want to use them for your own save the dates!

  1. Either order or print out address labels

Tom and I didn’t order address labels because we just figured we would write out the addresses but unless you have super neat handwriting, I highly don’t recommend this. As soon as we started to write out the addresses, it was clear to us that we just couldn’t send out our wedding save the dates like that. Not only was our handwriting messy but writing out 65 or so addresses was too time consuming and tiring. Instead, Tom picked up some address labels and by using a mail merge in Microsoft Word, we printed out all of our addresses out on labels. This made the process much easier and faster because all I simply had to do was peel each label and put it on the envelope. So if you want to save time and hand cramping, either order or print out your own address labels and skip the handwriting.

  1. Make your save the date short and sweet

Think of the save the date as the preview for the wedding invitation. The only real important information that should be included is your wedding date (duh) and the name of the place you are getting married.  The save the date also doesn’t have to be, and shouldn’t be, as elegant and fancy as your future wedding invitation. So make your save the date fun and maybe include a picture (or two or three) of the two of you. This puts that personalized touch into your save the date that your guests are going to love.

So there you have it, my 5 tips/pieces of advice when it comes to save the dates! Do you have anything to add to this list? If so, drop a comment down below, I would love to hear it!

10 random facts about me :)

29598360_1859728020704301_2268770555891896123_n

I figured the perfect first post for my new blog would be a post introducing you to the crazy girl that is me! So here are ten facts about me that will help you navigate and understand this blog a little better!

  1. My full name is Kaylee Marisa DeMarco (soon to be D’Ascanio)  and I was born exactly on my due date, December 24th 1995, which makes me 22 years old, even though I look like i’m 15 😀
  2. On October 28th 2018 I will be marrying the love of my life, Tom. We are high school sweethearts, becoming a couple my Junior year and his Senior year of high school ❤ Without him, I wouldn’t be who I am today and I certainty wouldn’t have started this blog. He gave me the confidence to share my voice with the world and continues to believe in me and my dreams every day!
  3. I am a total animal lover and have always had many pets in my life. At the moment, Tom and I have two dogs but I also have four other dogs who live with my mom as well as 2 cats and an assortment of little critters who live there as well. I’m certain you will get to know each one of them through this blog because they all mean so much to me.
  4. My hobbies include photography, writing, (mainly fiction novels and poetry) reading, listening to music, baking, and working on perler bead projects.
  5. I am a total Disney fanatic, so much so that my wedding theme is Disney and we are going to Disney World for our Honeymoon. Despite my love for Disney, I have yet to visit Disney World so the fact my first time will be on my Honeymoon just makes it even more special!
  6. My favorite colors are blue, pink, and purple. I am a very colorful person so the more colorful something is, the better. Even my engagement ring is a blue sapphire because Tom knew a regular diamond would just not be me.
  7. My favorite causal food is Pizza. I love pizza so much that I have pizza earrings, necklaces, a pillow, a hair bow, and multiple shirts with images of pizza on them. My favorite kind of pizza is extra cheese with bacon. My other favorite food is steak, which is ironic considering my second favorite animal is a cow. My first favorite animal is a dog.
  8. Family is most important to me. If you ask me what I want to be when I grow up, it’s simply to be the best wife and mother I can possibly be. I would love to be in some sort of job where I can work mainly at home, however, I do dream of becoming a fiction author and would also love to help out with middle and high school drama productions. Few things bring me more joy than watching these kids grow from auditions, to rehearsals, to show time. Having done theater all throughout high school, I love being able to share my experiences with these kids and maybe even help them to gain confidence up on that stage.
  9.  My guilty pleasure is reality TV shows. It drives Tom crazy lol but I honestly couldn’t live without my reality TV. My favorite ones would definitely be Teen Mom OG, Teen Mom 2, and Jersey Shore Family Vacation!
  10. I am currently a Thirty-one consultant. My favorite accessory by far is a purse (Tom says I have a bag obsession) so when I decided I wanted to join a direct sales company, Thirty-one was my first choice. I love thirty-one and all there products so if you would like to know more about Thirty-one, feel free to follow my VIP group on FB for more information! https://www.facebook.com/groups/127635967891724/
