Happy Monday, y’all!
Welcome to the blog! We are so glad that you ended up here with us! In order to get to know us a little better, we’ve decided to share 10 fun facts about each of us! Enjoy & let us know if you share any of our fun quirks!
1.) I LOVE to read! I own about 300 books! (actual ones, not ebooks) When I was in middle school and high school, my bff’s and I spent an unhealthy amount of time reading books together. So, the collection grew very quickly and has continued to grow over the years!
2.) Due to the above fact, I have an unhealthy obsession with Twilight. (I know, I know) I can’t help it, y’all. Twilight became popular when I was in middle school, and my young teenage heart just fell in love.
3.) My first name is Helen! There is a tradition in my family where the first born granddaughter is named after her great grandmother. The only time anyone calls me Helen is when I’m in trouble.
4.) I was once in nursing school! I got 3 years into college, and decided to change majors.
5.) My enneagram number is 9, The Peacemaker, and my wing is 1, The Reformer!
6.) I love to eat! Food makes me very happy! I’m known for being the first person in line at any party food table! Breakfast food is THE BEST FOOD OF ALL TIME! Try to change my mind, I dare ya.
7.) Anything related to the arts gets me super excited! I love going to plays, art galleries, museums, and anything slightly creative. There is nothing better than seeing other people’s creativity come to life!
8.) I have 9 siblings & 19 nieces and nephews!
9.) My husband, Anthony, & I have known each other for 11 years! We met at church (holy roly), and have been together for over 8 years, married for 4! There is a 4 1/2 year age gap between us, but must people don’t even know it.
10.) I LOVE JESUS! Y’all, how cool is it that the creator of the UNIVERSE made you & me, too?! God is awesome & my life has been radically changed by His love! You can almost always catch me at church (my happy place) on the front row, belting out all the songs, and crushin’ on my worship leader husband.
1.) Like Katlyn, I also love to escape into the land of fantasy. My favorite series by far is Harry Potter. My house is HufflePuff.
2.) I enjoy cleaning. I try to keep my house as clean as possible with my family running around. I also have been known to absentmindedly clean my friends homes. <freak>
3.) My enneagram is 6, The Loyalist, and my wing is 5, The Investigator. Those two together make me The Guardian.
4.) When I was growing up, my family and I were very into 4H. I had horses, pigs, chickens and rabbits! I won a few belt buckles and awards with my animals.
5.) When I was 15, I became an advance first degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do.
6.) I danced ballet growing up and I loved it! My daughter is now enrolled in dance and it makes my heart so happy.
7.) The biggest role model in my life would have to be my Grandmother. She has always been a huge inspiration to me.
8.) My husband, Brent, is amazing and so hard working. Without his daily sacrifice, I wouldn’t be as blessed as I am today! Not technically a fun fact about me, I just like to brag about him.
9.) I have a doggie named Knox! He is mixed breed and we rescued him about 7 years ago when he was a puppy. He is so good with the kids and loves for them to climb all over him. He also does not like to lay on hard surfaces. I’ve caught him a few times laying on the trampoline, sunbathing.
10.) I love a good party, wedding, or any celebration; whether I’m throwing it or attending, if I’m invited, I am there!
With love and grace,
