Hello friends! Today I’m linking up with Kiki for another round of her monthly link-up: The Circle! Get more details about this link-up here. This month’s prompt is: Blogger Introductions! I forgot to link to the Circle earlier this month…so here’s to meeting new bloggers and making new friends! But first…”I wanna talk about ME!” *lest you think I’m crazy obsessed with talking about me…I’m referring to Toby Keith’s song…and…you’re welcome for making you hum it all night!*
HI there, I’m Jen. Thank you so much for stopping by! For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a dreamer…and a runner.
Relocation has been a major theme in my life. I was born in Florida, but grew up in Wild, Wonderful West Virginia and attended college in Ohio. I had the most amazing, wonderful opportunity to intern in Washington, D.C. at The World Bank. About a year and a half after graduating college, I got engaged and moved to California. After 4 years in sunny, southern California, the hubs and I got transferred to the great south – Louisiana. Our most recent adventure is our first international assignment in Calgary, Alberta, Canada!
“Daydreams & Shoestrings” began in January 2011 as a way to share my first half marathon experience and random musings with my friends and family. I was living in Louisiana at the time, and trying to live a healthy, balanced life, while also enjoying some of life’s indulgences, such as Mardi Gras, Gumbo, and Mint Juleps. Along with a focus on living an active and healthy life, my blog follows my daily adventures with my hubby, and our insanely spoiled orange polydactyl cat, Mario. You will also discover day-to-day life in our current city, travel guides, daydream adventures, book reviews, and things that make me happy!
Additional Randomness about ME:
I love, love, love the color GREEN!
Fact: I am obsessed with making lists.
I obsess over far away destinations…hence my constantly growing DAYDREAMS list!
My newest pet peeve is one that drives my hubby crazy – now I constantly notice it: People who shuffle their feet while walking.
I have 22 pencil skirts…but wear pants to work 99% of the time.
I can’t cook to save my life.
I’m right-handed…but randomly find myself doing tasks with my left hand.
I talk to my mom almost every day. ♥
Any time I hear a CCR song, I’m instantly reminded of my youth. (Creedence Clearwater Revival…one of my dad’s favorites!)
A whole list of my QUIRKS…just for you. I know you’re curious!
My favorite holiday is Christmas – the one time a year that everyone comes together…no matter where we are in life.
I’m a natural introvert…with bursts of extroverted-ness!
I love Harry Potter. And The Hunger Games. And anything by Jennifer Weiner. Who am I kidding…I’m a total book nerd!
♥ Oh yes…and I can’t forget…I’m a country girl at heart! ♥
There you go! A little bit about me! If you’d like to know anything else, feel free to ask, I’m a pretty open book! Head on over to In Its Time to get acquainted with some other bloggers as well!
