Happy Birthday to Me - 31 Fun Facts About Me

Happy Birthday to me! In honor of my 31st birthday this Sunday (phew I feel old), I thought it would be fun to share with you some fun facts about me. Without further adieu...

I've been to six of the seven continents. Africa is my favorite, and I can't wait to go to Antarctica. 

I've traveled to 76 countries. Some of my favorite places have been Egypt, Easter Island (off the coast of Chile), the Galapagos Islands (off the coast of Ecuador), Hungary, Machu Picchu in Peru, Hong Kong, Kenya and Tahiti 

I was born and raised in Vail, Colorado and lived between our mountain house there, and our lake house in Wisconsin

I was on skis as soon as I was able to walk

Every time we go out to a nice dinner, I make Adam say it's an anniversary, birthday, or some sort of celebration in hopes of getting a free dessert. 9 out of 10 times I luck out

Sunflowers and stargazer lilies are my favorite flowers

I attended the University of Colorado - Boulder for college, and majored in Sociology emphasizing in Criminology

I convinced my mom when I was 15 to let me get my belly button pieced while we were vacationing in the Cayman Islands. I haven't had a belly button ring in for years, but the hole still won't close - so weird!

I went to a private K-12 school in Vail, and then attended a prep school in Wisconsin for high school

My class in Vail was the biggest in school history - it had 27 people in it. In Wisconsin, I had 32 classmates in my grade

I have a weakness for McDonald's french fries and get offended when people talk trash on McD's

Safari (my pup) is my favorite thing in the world

I always knew I wanted to go to fashion school but my parents said I had to have a well rounded education so I had something to "fall back on." After graduating from CU, I went straight to the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in San Francisco and graduated with honors

I still sleep with my childhood stuffed animal, a raggedy pink haired rabbit named Fuzzy Wuzzy, when Adam is out of town. He's seen better days, and has been patched and sewn back together more times than I can count 

I'm OCD about showering and bathing

I hate driving and being in the car 

I have two tattoos, and had my nose pierced for a few months my freshman year of college. I loved it, but looking back now, I can't believe I did it

I'm an expert packer, and can travel with just a carry-on for a two week trip. Fun fact - when I went to NYFW (New York Fashion Week) this past fall, I traveled with just a wheelie. It blew all the girl's minds, especially because they came with five suitcases. I had six outfits, three pairs of shoes, and four handbags. It's all about the planning

Philanthropy is a big part of my life and I think it's integral for everyone to give back. I'd love to start my own non-profit charity some day

My sister, Chelsey, is my only sibling and is four years older - she's the best!

I played competitive tennis in high school and still love the sport to this day. I also was on the swim team, and the cheerleading team

I absolutely hate surprises, probably because I don't like being caught off guard

I've always dreamed of owning a boutique on a tropical island

I took Spanish classes from kindergarten to 12th grade and can still understand the language fairly well, but can't speak it

I love tomatoes more than anything, and I eat them by themselves all the time

If I wasn't in the fashion industry, I would be a lawyer

My favorite holiday is Halloween, but I don't like candy. Go figure

I don't like change, but adapt well when I'm put in a new environment or start something new

My grandma is the #1 fan of my blog. After she reads every blog post, she writes me an email about it, and shares the most amazing anecdotes with me. I truly look forward to it, and save them all in an email folder with her name on it!

I believe in quality over quantity, especially when it comes to friendships 

I love laughing and always laugh at my own jokes

Thanks for stopping by and getting the chance to learn a little bit more about me! Have a great weekend! xo
