FTF Blog Event 4/6: Where I Come From


For the first Full Time Fabulous blog event, we are to present visuals of our heritage. Hopefully this will let you get to know me a little better!

I'm originally from New Jersey so included a little map of my hometown. Growing up in New Jersey, I always dreamed of living in Manhattan- now I do! I have this poster of the evening view of Manhattan in my apartment now just as a reminder of how lucky I am.

I'm half Irish (and Dutch) so I included the oh so true logo of "Everybody Loves An Irish Girl." My mom's side is the Irish part and her father is exactly where I get my personality. I'm joked as "Grandpa junior." He loved his family wholeheartedly although he would bust their chops (as we say) until his last breath.

I grew up with a a long, red haired dachshund named Buster. He was the worst dog ever, but we loved him as a part of the family. When he passed away, my mom quickly got two new rescue doxies. My sister has one and I know I plan on getting one so they are kind of our family dog.

I had to include the game of Scrabble because that is the family game. We are so competitive about it. Even though my sister is in California, my brother is in New Jersey, and I'm in New York we play on an app on our phone as well as Facebook. I must have like 5 games of Scrabble going right now, it's ridiculous. When we get together we always play, this past summer we got the Diamond Edition. Anyone who wants to be part of the family has to go through a game of Scrabble (lol!).

I, of course, had to include something fashion as that has been my love since I was little. My mom always joked how I had ridiculous fashion requests on my Christmas list like a white rabbit fur coat in third grade. I have no idea now why I wanted a white coat (lol!), but I was pretty pimpin'.

  12. I love that you play games with your siblings. I also am close with my family even though we may not live in the same areas. Scrabble's always fun, we have an ongoing game of chess & my Papa & brother & I always pick up where we left off when we arrive at each others location. (we're kinda nerdy that way) hehe! -xxoo Nice post dear!

  20. この間、雨が降り続けています。本当に嫌ですね。この天気で、毎日バスに乗って、仕事に行かなければなりません。どこでも水だらけです。靴や服はよく雨に降りされます。だからもっと気持ちが悪いです。この時は私はノースフェイス ジャケット・パーカー メンズに着ます。薄いノースフェイス レインウエアメンズです。私の雨を対抗する武器です。
