In Case You Wanted to Know Some More About ME :)

Linking up with Becky today! I also love getting to know all about other bloggers, so this is a fun way to introduce myself to new readers and maybe let my loyal readers know a little bit more about me!
How long have you been blogging? And what got you started on blogging? Has your blog changed?
I have been blogging for 6 months! I got started blogging because I was a wee bit down after the holidays. My dream wedding was over, Christmas had come and gone, I was home all day with a 4 month old baby two hours away from my hometown... blogging became a way for me to feel like I had purpose! Now that Bubba keeps me WAY busier than he did 6 months ago, I still love to blog!

Did you go to college? If so where, and what did you study?
Yes! I went to Michigan State University (Go Green!) and studied Psychology. I am returning to MSU this fall for my master's in social work :)
If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you would buy?
A house! The house fever I have is baaaaaaad! I wish we were in a place we were ready to settle down because house shopping is something I do for fun these days...

What is your drink of choice; wine, beer, or liquor. Or Water, Soda, Tea?
This really depends on my mood.
Love me some tequila (preferably Patron), club soda, and lime.
Red wine September-April, White wine May-August
Beer works - I love a dark beer (Guinness... yum!) and Oberon on tap in the summer!
I am addicted to fountain Diet Coke.
Could drink coffee all day.
But drink about 3 water bottles of water a day!

What is something you enjoy to do when you have me time?
What's that?? I don't really like being alone so I would rather have John be with me during "me" time and have us snuggling up on the couch or out to see a movie/grab a drink.

What day would you love to relive again?
It's cliche to say but I would love to re-do our wedding day over and over and over again- it was that amazing!
I would also relive the day Jack was born. Sure there were painful parts... but nothing can beat the raw emotion and love I felt that day!
What are the jobs you had in high school/college/the early years?
My first ever job was as a hostess at a popular restaurant in my hometown.
Then I was a nanny all through college... other than a few blips as an ice cream scooper and 3 weeks as a university telemarketer (WORST EVER!)

Show us a picture from high school or college.
high school Kayla: Obviously I was a master at staying glamorous while camping at the beach.
College Kayla: Being driven home after her 21st birthday.

Show us the most current picture of you or you and your family.
Where do you see your life 5 years from now?
Babies, babies, babies! A part-time job at a marriage and family wellness clinic, and in our first home!

Extra BONUS fact about me: My name is KAYLA... only my closest friends/family call me "Kay". I decided to use that as my "signature" on this blog to be a bit more "anonymous" (my hubby gets nervous about the crazies!) I now realize it's a bit ahem unnecessary, but the name has stuck! Consider yourself a close friend ;)
