I have an older brother (31) and an older sister(27).
Both of my siblings actually travel waaay more than I do. My brother has lived and worked in Southeast Asia and in Western Australia, and my sister has been on 5 continents and currently lives and works in Rwanda, Africa.
I was voted “best hair” and “most likely to leave town and never come back” in my senior class
I have thick hair with a natural beach wave look to it, and I kept it really long and layered all through high-school. When I was in high school (06-09) straightening your hair was the style. I’d like to say I didn’t want to be like everyone else, but in reality I just really didn’t care and would rather have had 20 extra minutes of sleep in the morning than have straight hair everyday.
I have literally flown completely around the world
During one of my trips to Asia I flew from Chicago to New York City to Bejing to Bangkok. My return flight from that same trip was from Bangkok to Tokyo to Chicago.
I google the ending of nearly every movie and TV series I watch
I genuinely like knowing what’s going to happen and can enjoy the plot more once I know how things are going to end up. There’s nothing worse than getting completely invested in the characters of a show only to be surprised when the ending is god-awful (I’m looking at you Dexter).
I hate hate HATE licorice, red vines, etc.
Literally just the smell of it will make me dry heave. One time my sister insisted upon getting liccorice during a road trip, I literally had my head out the window of the car the entire time she ate it.
My fiancé, Casey, and I were really good friends for quite a while before we actually started dating.
I honestly think genuine friendship is one of the most solid foundations to build a relationship off of. If you’re gonna spend forever with someone you should probably spend it with your best friend.
My favorite book ever is The Great Gatsby.
I first read it in high school for a book report and instantly fell in love. In fact, I love it so much I named my dog Gatsby.
I started riding horses when I was 9 years old
I competitively competed in rodeo from age 12-18. In that time, I was a 4-time grand champion barrel racer, and a 2-time grand champion pole bender. My rodeo horse, Sally, is now retired, but I still take her out on trail rides from time to time when I’m back home in Wisconsin.
My favorite television shows of all time are Boy Meets World, and That 70’s Show
I own all seasons of both shows and can quote nearly every episode. I can watch 1 million rom-coms and never shed a tear, but the final episode of Boy Meets World makes me cry every. freaking. time.
My first crushes as a little girl were always on older men
Specifically Jesse Katsopolis and Nick Parker…AKA, John Stamos from Full House and Dennis Quaid from The Parent Trap. I mean what 90’s kid didn’t have a crush on Uncle Jesse?
