For quite a few weeks now, I’ve thought about taking part in the Instagram hashtag #FridayIntroductions. Buuuut Instagram isn’t really my strongest social media platform so there aren’t really any new followers I need to introduce myself too!
Starting a new blog however does require a little bit of introduction so here I am. Let’s pretend we’re going out for coffee for the first time and hopefully, whether it’s your first time visiting the blog or you’re a long time follower, you’ll learn a little something new about me.
+ I’m Elizabeth (waves) and I’m a 26-year old wife and mama (both baby and fur). My husband Zach and I have been married since July 2012 and we spent a good chunk of that time living in sunny Hawaii. Now we make our home in not-so-sunny upstate New York.
+ I’m a textbook INFP personality type–which doesn’t mean I’m shy necessarily but it does mean that I’m most comfortable dealing with people one on one, avoiding conflict if at all possible, and expressing myself in writing rather than speaking.
+ Blue is my favorite color. When I was little, I’d pray every night for my eyes to turn from brown to blue, just like Amy Carmichael. Aaaand, just like Amy, my eyes are still brown. Thankfully, I have a blue-eyed husband and a blue-eyed daughter to make up for it.
+ I’m obsessed with the Moana soundtrack. The movie was absolutely amazing and I’ve had “How Far I’ll Go” and “We Know the Way” playing on repeat since the first time I heard them.
+ I rarely drink coffee, even though I love the flavor. It’s unfair really because anything more than a grande cup gives me a horrible headache!
+ I’m 5 foot 1 inch. Exactly.
+ I’m currently in a reading funk. I’m not sure if it’s because I really don’t have time to sit and enjoy a book or if I’m just not into the type of books that are trending these days.
+ I have never watched “This is Us”. GASP.
+ I’m currently on a mission to get back to my pre-baby weight. Which means I’ve begun again my love/hate affair with Jillian Michaels. I am loving her new app though, partly because I can personalize my routine to not include the dreaded pushups.
+ I have taken the Sorting Hat quiz on Pottermore three times and have been sorted into the same house every time. In case you’re wondering it’s not Gryffindor or Slytherin.
+ My least favorite household chore is sweeping.
+ I have a bad habit of buying frames to hang in our house but never printing out photos for them.
So those are just a few things about me.
Tell me something about you!
What tune are you humming lately? Any book recommendations for me? If you’re a HP fan, what house were you sorted into?
