As I was browsing through my blog feed today, I was thinking about why I love reading blogs so much. I've decided that it's because blogs are the closet thing to "reality" that you're going to get, way better than any reality TV I've ever seen. I feel like I can relate to so many of y'all and I love reading stories about your life, the great times, the challenges, and your inspiration for how to get through it all.
The best thing about my favorite blogs is getting to know the author behind the stories, I love finding things in common with all of y'all. I want to have that same transparency on my blog, and hope to be as relatable to as many of you as possible. I love when people leave comments saying "I know EXACTLY what you mean" because then I know I'm not the only girl out there feeling the same way.
I wanted to write a post to tell y'all a little more about me, especially since some of you are new. I figured the more we do this on our blogs the more we'll realize that we all walk in similar shoes, maybe a different color or size, but we're all traveling down similar paths none the less.
First and foremost, I'm not your typical Texas girl. I love it here, I was born and raised here, but I have a less than normal obsession with the "Carolina's"
I went to school in Charlotte, UNCC, and leaving Texas for college was the best decision I ever made. It forced me to grow up and become my own person.
My dad took me to a NASCAR race when I was 17 and after that day I knew I wanted to pursue a career in sports. I've realized I have way too much energy to be a "gray cube" girl, and have enjoyed working in sports and events ever since.
I've been blessed with the three most amazing brothers in the world. This also has caused me to love shows like Jackass, crude humor, and college football.
I'm dating my best friend. We met in college, he liked me and I didn't like him, I liked him he didn't like me, I cried lots of tears over him, moved to another state, and we finally decided to give it a shot. I'm glad we're finally on the same page, because he makes me happy.
The absolute coolest city I've ever been to is Buenos Aires, Argentina, but I'm dying to visit Chile one day.

So, tell me a little more about you!
