Birthday Girl

Today I enter my last year of being in my 20s! It’s hard to believe that next year I’ll be 30. I feel like it was just yesterday I was graduating from college.

Birthdays have and always will be a big deal to me. I still act like a 5 year old when it comes to presents because I love them so much! My mom always made sure that our birthdays were extra special growing up and I’ve kept that tradition up even as I’m an adult. I’ve tried to get my husband to believe that I get a birthday month and not just one day but he doesn’t really follow along with that idea.

In honor of my 29th birthday, here are 29 facts about me.

1. I was born and raised in Milwaukee, WI.

2. Growing up I competed in pageants. I was pretty shy prior to competing in them but they turned me into a chatterbox.

3. I wanted my name to be Sally growing up, after the Wee Sing video series I was obsessed with.

4. I have a teddy bear named Mr. Bear that I’ve had since I was little and I slept with it every night…even when I was in college.

6. Baton twirling was my sport growing up. I can twirl 2 fire batons.

7. Along with baton twirling, I was in an Irish Baton Corps and when I was the junior captain that made me the leprechaun mascot for the group. I would dress up as a leprechaun for parades and competitions.
