Well hello everyone!
Today has been ridiculous in a good way!! So, for those of you who aren’t on my Instagram, Anthony and I decided to sell our original wedding shoes and use the money to put into savings for a future car or house! So now I have to go back to hunting for the perfect and comfy wedding shoes. Because of that, I decided to take a look at my Wedding Dress to get a good idea of what colors and detailing would be best! And…I ended up crying because it really just hit me that I am actually getting married. Anyways, on top of that the 18th actually marks Anthony and I being engaged for 8 months. AND THEN…Lindy from Bubzbeauty announced she’s pregnant and I can’t emotionally function right now. BUT, Congrats Lindy! I am so excited for you, Tim, Chubby, and Domo! Your little family is growing!! AHH.
Moving on, I haven’t done a SimplyMe post in a while because my life has been so busy with the convention, internship, work, snow, and I am trying to get back into the swing of life. So, today I think a 50 Facts about Me post is nice and relaxing!
Alright, here’s to a long list of…facts? Lord help us now…

#43 – I am limited in the creative department. My DIY skills are little to none and the only DIY craft I am good at is making origami stars…

#50 – FINALLY. I saved this for last because it is a huge part of my life: I am absolutely in love and infatuated with photography. I love taking the pictures and I love looking at other people’s pictures. They can make or break your website and they have the ability to draw people in without words.
