But, I don't want to be so guarded anymore. I've been doing a lot of thinking and although fashion is a big part of who I am, I don't want this blog to just be that! So to start this season of openness, I decided to share some fun facts about myself that you probably don't know!
My grandma owned a boutique in her little south Georgia town, so my online boutique, Molly Suzanne, is inspired by her.
I'm a pediatric nurse. I went to school in New York and worked for about 9 years before and in between babies before taking a more serious break now that we're in North Carolina.
I cook nearly every night. I love cooking and have since I was little. We blow our grocery budget nearly every month, but our restaurant budget always has extra.
I sang in a church band between the ages of about 13 and 16. We made 4 albums, flew or took busses to shows all over the east coast and to England. It was an amazing part of my teenage years!
I have never lived near my parents (or in-laws) as a parent. I sometimes get jealous of people who have their mom right down the street.
I have 3 sisters and 1 brother and never expected to have boys! I was 14 when my youngest sister was born and I actually delivered her at home...on purpose!
I was born in Georgia and also lived in Alabama and Florida growing up. I moved to New York with The Hubs and we've lived in California, Virginia and North Carolina since.
My Dad was a pastor nearly my whole childhood. It was hard being a pastor's kid sometimes, but also really helped ground me. My faith is a huge part of my life and I want my kids to grow up with the same love for Jesus that we do.
I'm a really poor housekeeper. I used to have a pretty good handle on things, but my house is messy most of the time. I keep up on the cleaning portion, but since having a third baby, it's never tidy here!
And speaking of cleaning, I also hate folding laundry. There are currently 4 unfolded baskets of clean clothes in my room.
I've had grey hair since I was 18. I have to color my roots every 3-4 weeks. I used to really be mad about it, but at least I'm not balding!
I love reality TV. I don't watch nearly as much as I used to, but if I have to fold that laundry, you better believe there is something mind numbing in the background.
I hate reading. Like really hate it. I've had a book on my bedside table for at least 3 months and I haven't even gotten through a chapter, even though I was so excited to read it.
I took special art and writing classes in high school and my self portrait looks exactly like 16 year old me. I wish I had kept it up more, but at least I can impress my kids with my sketches now.
I'm 5'2" and The Hubs is 6'3". I wore 4" heels on our wedding day and he still had to bend down an awkward amount.
I always said all I wanted to be when I grew up was a wife and mom. I am completely blessed to be living my dream.
If there's anything you want to know, ask away! Happy Friday!
