12 facts about me

For the past year, I have been sharing mostly style tips and outfit inspiration. I always wanted to let you all in so you can get to know the girl behind the pictures. I never knew how to go about it and a big part of me was really holding back. But, I think the time is right and I think this next year is going to really be about me letting you all in and seeing me in a different way.

I recently got nominated by two fellow blogger friends,  Mary of Miss Mary Powers and Angelle of Dashing Darlin, to share 12 facts about myself. So I think it's a perfect way to open up and let you all get to know a little bit about me.

1. I am Polish, both of my parents were born in Poland. I am first generation American and am fluent in Polish. Heres a fun fact, my first language was Polish and I actually taught myself to speak english by watching cartoons.

2.  I am a Jersey girl born and raised. After high school I moved to Los Angeles California for almost 4 years! I lived in NYC for a little bit and now we are living in New York. (hoping we end up back in New Jersey! )

3. My family calls me the "Pinterest Queen" - I'm obsessed with Pinterest, it's my go to for recipes, craft ideas, home inspiration.. really just about anything!.. I can get really crafty and want to try everything I see on there .. but you totally get that right!?

4. I love to cook!! I enjoy experimenting and trying new meals. My favorite thing to do after a long day is pour a glass of wine and cook some dinner - it's my escape/therapy! 

5. I haver really bad scoliosis. When I was in High School, I saw a spine specialist who said my curvature was 2 degrees away from having to get a rod surgically put into my back. To put things into perspective, I am 5'5, doctors said if my spine was straightened out I would by about 5'10 ! 

6. I am a hypochondriac, this is not a fact that I like about myself, but maybe someone can relate? I've been a hypochondriac for as long as I can remember but as I've gotten old it's gotten worse. It's mostly medical issues that I freak out about. It could be the smallest thing but I'll think the absolute worse and can even cause myself to have anxiety attacks about it!!

7. Something you may not know.. Chris and I are not married.

8.  I love binge watching tv shows! Favorite thing to do at the end of the day.. Got any good recommendations?! send them my way!

9. I get really uncomfortable in front of the camera and a crowd ... which is a recent thing. But once I warm up, there's no stopping me.

10. Chris and I are huge foodies, we love going out to eat and trying new restaurants (that's like our thing) .

11. Growing up I always wanted to be a famous actress, I always filled that in, in school under "what do you want to be when you grow up?"

12.  I was very athletic growing up, a gymnast since the age of 3, a cheerleader all the way through high school. I ran varsity track, played field hockey and also swam . Now, I can't see to get my ass off the couch these days :( 

Phew!! That was hard .... It took me two days to come up those 12 "interesting" facts about myself. .. I guess it's a good start. That was fun though and I hope that you all got to know me a little bit more. Comment below with a interesting fact about yourself, I'd love to know something!
