7 Random Facts

by Ashley

I know I have been a little MIA this afternoon… sorry ’bout that!  It’s been a busy day, as most of my Mondays are.  It was a good, productive day though, which is always a great way to start off the week! 

Today I was awarded the Blissful Blogger Award by the fabulous Lyndsie at High Cotton Livin’!  Thanks so much Lyndsie!

 I am told that if I want to accept this award, I must share with you seven random facts about me.  Oh boy, I’m really not good at these random facts kind of questions, but I’ll give it a shot.  Here it goes:

Fact #1: My husband and I have known each other since he was 12 years old and I was 9 years old!

We attended the same church growing up, so we knew each other since we were kids.  Never in a million years did I think I was going to marry the “ladies’ man” in our youth group!  I am so incredibly thankful that I did though, and I am also incredibly thankful that he’s not known as the “ladies man” anymore. 😉 

Fact #2: I tore my ACL, MCL, and Meniscus playing volleyball my junior year of high school.

I was going up for a hit (spike) and when I landed, my knee locked up and I fell to the ground.  Needless to say, this was not an enjoyable experience!  It was at the very beginning of our volleyball season, and I was having a great season so far with high hopes of being one of the starting six and a possibility of looking to play in college.  Unfortunately my knee injury didn’t allow for either of those hopes.  I had surgery on it and it still gives me issues sometimes, but at least it’s fixed!


Fact #3:  My favorite candy (bar) in the whole wide world is Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

The good ol’ traditional peanut butter cups are my favorite.  I eat the outside of them first and then eat the center, which is the most amazing bite ever. 


Fact #4:  I am 100% DUTCH baby! 

Yup, I am all Dutch…every little bit of me.  This means I am incredibly frugal, far from petite, have a (Dutch) booty, and have lighter hair and features. 😉


Fact #5:  The one food I could never ever get sick of is peanut butter.

I could seriously eat a whole jar of peanut butter in one day if I allowed myself.  I make sure I ration myself to 2 tablespoons a day otherwise I’d spend WAY too much money on peanut butter, and I don’t think my tummy would be very happy if I ate a whole jar every day. 

Fact #6: My two favorite movies are “Marley and Me” and “The Blindside”.

“Marley and Me” reminds me exactly of what our life is like with our yellow lab, Ryan.  I swear Marley and Ryan are the same dog.  Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston’s relationship in the movie also is very similar to Cody’s and mine, so it just makes me smile. 🙂


“The Blindside” was such an inspirational film.  It made me cry as much as I laughed.


Fact #7: One of my biggest dreams in life has always been to be a mom.  (A great one like my momma nonetheless!)

I am now supposed to tag seven other bloggers.  Here they are:

Janae at The Hungry Runner Girl
