Blog Hop – 3 Things You Didn’t Know About Me

Ok Blog Hop… This isn't an easy one for me!! I mean obviously if you're just hopping through, I can say any three things and you wouldn't know the difference, but for others who potentially read this at least occasionally… well… what do you not know? So I'm writing this strictly for the unknown. For people who want to get to know me in three easy steps.

  1. I am originally from the suburbs of Chicago. I lived in a small-for-Chicago town called Westchester, and the house I grew up in was about 5 blocks(ish) from where Al Capone was buried. I moved to TN in September of 2004 because I felt that it was what God was calling me to do with my life. It's been a ride so far, and I can't wait to see what God has in store for my future

  2. I'm a banker. I can open accounts, work teller-row, do all things back office. There's a lovely little term called nepotism that got me a job in banking when I was 16 (almost 17) and except for about a year and a half just after I moved to TN, that's what I've been doing with my life ever since. It's amazing to me that I've had 10 years in the same field and I only recently celebrated the 4th anniversary of my 25th birthday! I'm not always content in this because what I want more than anything is for God's timing to be now when he lets me meet the man of my heart and get married. I want to be a mom. But I'm pretty sure I've mentioned this pretty recently

  3. When people ask me how I'm doing, I always answer, "I'm livin' the dream!" It all started out kind of as a joke when I was having a bad day. I really believe in using reverse psychology on myself (i.e. when I'm in a bad mood I make myself act chipper, when I'm feeling self conscious I make myself look people in the eye). So when I started saying that I was 'livin the dream' it was to convince myself that the day wasn't as awful as I was making it out to be. Now it's become kind of a staple for an answer for me. People just got such a kick out of it that I kept it going. But I realized there was even more. I am living the dream. I have my health, my family, friends… and most importantly, I have God in my life!! It is a dream indeed…
