Hi everyone, happy Monday! And it's actually a happy one because it's Memorial Day and most of us are lucky enough to have off work today! I'll be spending the day poolside at my parent's house grilling, relaxing, swimming, and capping off the night watching The Bachelorette with one of my best friends from high school, what are you up to today?

Anyways, I thought it'd be fun today to share 10 random facts about myself. I always like getting to know the bloggers I follow a little better so I figured since I've been doing this for 9 months now, why not? So, in no particular order:

ONE // Yellow is my favorite color. My old bedroom was painted yellow but my brother stole it when I was away at college. My second favorite color is gray. when I own my own home I want to do my bedroom in grays and yellows.

TWO // I have been to four continents and I'm planning a trip to my fifth for next June. Any guesses where I'm heading? (hint: I really like sushi & loved Gwen Stefani's style in 2006)

THREE // I have seen the Sublime tribute band "Badfish" perform over 15 times.

FOUR // I have read the novel 'A Clockwork Orange' four times. I think anyone who reads it should read it at least twice since it's difficult to understand all the slang the first time.

FIVE // Breaking Bad is my favorite TV show ever. This is followed closely by Game of Thrones and Gilmore Girls.

SIX // My favorite animal is a pig. This has been true since I was four years old and received a stuffed pig beanie baby for Christmas. I still own it, and yes it is sitting with me right now.

SEVEN // My favorite bar in Paris is called Tape Bar and if you are ever in the city you should definitely visit.

EIGHT // I hate the taste of diet coke and will only drink regular. I think I'm not allowed to actually be a blogger because of this but that's ok, doing it anyways.

NINE // I am naturally blonde but I dyed my hair red twice in high school and middle school. I don't see myself doing it again.

TEN // I've studied five languages throughout my academic career. French is the only language that I've studied that I consider myself conversational in. The others are Japanese, Latin, Spanish, and Italian.

Bonus: I hate watching sports on TV but I'm totally obsessed with the Olympics and I can't wait for Rio 2016. The swimming and gymnastics are my favorite events!

  6. Wow you are quite the world traveler!! My husband and I just tried to start Breaking Bad. Well I tried, he still watches! I couldn't get into it and I was so bummed because I'd heard how great it was! It was just too dark and depressing for me. Maybe I need to stick it out and hope it gets better!
