It’s so hard to describe yourself, isn’t it? Can someone else write this for me? No? Well ok.
I’m a midwest girl, born and raised in small town, Indiana. I have a bachelor’s degree in Nursing from Indiana University in Indianapolis. I’m married to my high school sweetheart, a ridiculously hardworking and generous man. We have a little fur child named Meeka. I have no shame in my complete obsession with this little six pound yorki-poo. We also added a new baby to the mix this year- a tabby kitten named Chrissy (after Chrissy Teigen OF COURSE).
We now live in Minnesota, right outside of Minneapolis. This is a new experience for us, we have spent the last 3 years living in Washington state right across the state line from Portland, Oregon. The Pacific Northwest is an amazing place. Truly, it was difficult to leave, however, we are loving going back to our roots in the Midwest!
I work as a nurse in a pediatric clinic doing the RN advice line. A drastic departure from the intense research hospital I used to work at in Portland, I was ready for a change. Nurse burnout is REAL y’all! I also teach Barre3 which has grown into a huge part of my life, one that I cherish dearly!
My hobbies include eating, going out to eat, cooking, trying new restaurants (do you sense a trend?). I also love beer tasting and wine tasting (again with the trend..). Traveling is a huge part of my life and I hope to grow that hobby even further in the upcoming year! I love fitness and health, especially barre. I am a complete nerd, meaning that I read an average of 5+ books a month and watch documentaries for fun. I listen to podcasts while I’m driving and basically just love knowledge. About anything. Walking my dog is a hobby that I take seriously, we both greatly enjoy it. I have always loved writing, it’s a wonderful outlet for me. Shopping. SHOPPING. For home goods, clothes, shoes, makeup, dog toys, doesn’t matter. I’m all about it. Speaking of makeup… LOVE. I love experimenting with makeup, doing other people’s makeup, doing my own makeup, watching makeup videos.
What else? I’m loud and love a good debate, however, I’d label myself as a hardcore introvert. An outgoing introvert, but definitely an introvert. I’m Type A all the way, and really love a good 3 hour long organizing and cleaning session. I’m super into fashion and style, but you might not realize it because 90% of my life is spent in workout clothes or scrubs.
Let’s be friends.
