24 Things …

Since the blog has changed a little bit over the past couple of weeks, I wanted to do a fun blog post to share a little bit about me for those of you who are new around here! And even if you’re not new, these are probably still things you don’t know. Here goes nothing … 24 random things about me!

me

  1. I went to the University of Arkansas for my undergrad. I’m a Kansas girl at heart, but Arkansas is my home away from home. I loved every minute of it and would give anything to go back! Go Hogs!
  2. I can’t stand steak or seafood, at all. I’m a cheap date!
  3. I drink coffee in some form, every single day without fail. I like it hot, cold, made at home, from Starbucks, with cream, without cream, pretty much anything! I love it.
  4. I’ve lived in Kansas almost my whole life. Kansas gets a bad rap but I wouldn’t trade living here for the world!
  5. I have three pets that I love so so much. I have Butter and Jelli, who are both cats, and Peaches who is our lab/pointer mix who you’ve probably seen make an appearance on the @KaleKouture Instagram story a time or two!
  6. If I could go anywhere in the world, it would be Greece. Santorini and Mykonos have been on my bucket list forever.
  7. I have eczema pretty badly. I started having flare ups fairly regularly starting my freshman year of college and have had them ever since. It’s on my face and arms which can be embarrassing and kind of disheartening to deal with because I have little control over it. It’s usually due to my efforts in trying to find different products to keep it under control.
  8. I worked as a lifeguard for five summers while I was in high school and college.
  9. Running a half marathon is on my bucket list. I trained up to 9 miles my junior year of college and had to quit because of pretty severe shin splints.
  10. I was never big into sports which some people think is weird considering my love of being active. I threw javelin in high school but that was the extent of my sports days. My brother plays college baseball so it’s pretty safe to say he got the athletic gene.
  11. I’m a Kindergarten teacher. It’s what I’ve always wanted to do and I love every second of it! My dream is to be a teacher in a hospital for children in need of long term care.
  12. The lake is by far my most favorite place to be – any time of year. If I could spend every single weekend there, I would.
  13. I have the biggest fear of public speaking. I sweat, turn red, the whole nine yards. I’m not a shy person whatsoever but speaking in front of people is my worst fear.
  14. I have a huge passion for travel – I’ve traveled more in the two years I’ve been out of college than I have my whole life and it has been the most rewarding experience.
  15. I am not exaggerating when I say I could not live without Chick-Fil-A. It has been and always will be my all time favorite. My favorite things on the menu are: diet lemonade, nuggets with Chick-Fil-A sauce, and the cookies & cream milkshake with extra Oreos.
  16. I do not like water, at all. I don’t crave the taste of plain water, and I will be the first to admit that I am the worst when it comes to drinking water. If there’s Mio mixed in it, I can guzzle it, but without, it’s just not happening.
  17. South Carolina is my favorite place I’ve been, within the U.S. If you haven’t been, it’s a must. Charleston especially. It’s serene, the living is so laid back, and it’s so charming! I can’t see myself moving from Kansas anytime soon but if I could pick anywhere that would be number one on my list!
  18. Becoming a NASM CPT is a long term goal for me. Fitness is a huge passion of mine so I would love to be able to work closely with clients and do it as a part time job one day. I have a lot on my plate right now so hopefully within the next couple of years!
  19. I met my boyfriend Taylor my sophomore year of high school and we’ve been dating for close to 9 years now. I never really talk about him on the blog, but he’s my best friend and has been a huge supporter in this whole blogging process.
  20. Having my nails done is a guilty pleasure of mine and is the one thing I  will spend money on regularly. I’ve been doing the dipping powder for the last 6 months and I will never go back to shellac or anything else. I would definitely recommend it if you’ve never tried it.
  21. I have a serious addiction to activewear and tennis shoes. I’m sure you’ve noticed. But would spend money on workout clothes and tennis shoes over regular clothes any day of the week.
  22. If I weren’t a teacher I would want to be a labor and delivery nurse. I am obsessed with babies and am fascinated with the thought of being a part of the process of bringing them into the world every day!
  23. I cannot leave my house without making my bed. No matter how late I’m running, I take 20 seconds to make my bed. I feel like my room is 20x messier if the bed isn’t made!
  24. I’m fulfilling a fitness bucket list item this fall, as I’m planning to participate in a Tough Mudder in October! It’s extremely outside my “fitness comfort zone” and unlike anything I’ve ever done before, but I am excited to be working towards a new goal.
