7 Things About Me

I’ve been MIA from the blog for well over six months now and I thought it was time to make a return. Honestly, I just got overwhelmed with blogging and life. I have a love-hate relationship with Pinterest these days and got to the point where it felt like I needed to be doing things with the blog to live up to the new “blogging standards”.

When I started blogging five years ago, there weren’t all the other blogs with the perfect designs, amazing photography and I didn’t feel like my blog had to be perfect. The blogging world suddenly felt like high school all over again and I’d just lost the motivation to keep up.

I will do another post soon about what’s been going on in our world since last summer. As I have spent the last three days confined to the couch and on limited activity due to a new health problem, I found myself actually wanting to blog again. And don’t worry, I have no intentions of conforming to these new perfect standards. What you see, is what you get.

In case you have forgotten who I was… here are 7 Things You May Not Know About Me.

7 Things You May Not Know About Me

1. I have two middle names {Lynn Ashlee} and I always wanted Ashlee to be spelled with a “Y” because that’s how everyone spelled it. But now I love the way it’s spelled and hate that forms never allow enough space to use both names. Coincidentally my husband also has two middle names.

2. I love to travel. I spent two weeks in Australia and a week in New Zealand before my senior year of high school. And have been to every adjoining state from California to North Carolina. And once spent 24 hours driving from New York, to Niagara Falls, Canada to Iowa all by myself.

3. I almost got held behind in 6th grade when I missed almost a month of school at the end of the year due to having gall bladder surgery.

4. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice, but I have a fear of guns.

5. I moved to Ohio for college 11 years ago, not knowing anyone & turned out that I met some of the most wonderful people whom, I am proud to call my best friends, here.

6. I have seven nieces and nephews, a great niece & a great nephew. My oldest niece is 3 months older than I am.

7. I’m the youngest of 13 grandchildren and spent every weekend from the time I was 3 years old with my grandparents, going to auctions & flea markets, digging for treasures, learning how to be frugal, learning how to be creative, making me the crazy frugal person I am today. They were more than grandparents to me.

{Bonus} I really enjoy watching trashy reality shows, including shows that my husband has got me hooked on {Fast & Loud, Orange County Choppers}, and family comedy shows.
