Today’s a day of celebration at good old Blogs Like a Girl. Not only have I established a Facebook page but I reached over 100 followers on Bloglovin’. Since I have so many new followers, I figured I’d do a reintroduction post. (Lovingly stolen from Kat.)
Name/ Age/ Location – Michelle or Chelle, whichever you prefer. 29, 30 in March. (This is where I’m supposed to gulp since I’m almost 30 and I’ve achieved…really nothing but nope! I’m quite comfortable with turning 30.) Washington, DC. Well, really NoVa but I’m within the old boundary stones.
Working for the Weekend – I’m a fundraiser for a medical foundation. If you ever get address labels from a nonprofit in the mail, think of me!
Hobbies – Well, I read. I also hang out with my Delta Zeta alumnae group and Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR.) I claim to, and sometimes actually do, work out. I sign up for races a lot. Oh, also, I like to keep my life exciting by waiting till the last drop to fill my gas tank. Will I make it to said race? Will I?
Favorite Food – There are many contenders but I’m going to go with mash potatoes with cheese and sour cream. So yummy, so fattening.
Standard Bar Order – Rum and coke.
Shopping – Kohls. And Target. But that’s pretty much it. If I can’t get it from those two places, I don’t need it. That’s a lie, all my dresses come from TJ Max and Ross and that other one that’s basically the same thing. Marshalls.
Bed Time/Wake Up Time – Supposedly 7am on weekdays, around 9am on weekends. But if I go to bed after 11pm, whoa whoa all bets are off!
Beauty Products I Can’t Live Without – I cannot stress enough how I am not a beauty girl. I basically roll out of bed and skip make-up. I guess when I do my make-up, I can’t live without my Naked 2 eye palette. Also, I really love EOS Chap Stick.
What I Blog About – Recipes, book reviews, personal stuff, occasionally politics (particularly women’s issues) and of course, my cats. I’m kind of obsessed with their ridiculousness.
How I Started Blogging/ Why I Blog – I’ve always had some sort of blog/web presence. Livejournal, xanga, deadjournal, blogger, wordpress, myspace, tumblr, etc. you name, I probably had it. It all started when we got that free AOL disc in middle school and I started my own webpage on GeoCities. I taught myself html code thanks to this site called Lissa Explains It All, which I confess I still sometimes refer to as a reminder. Why do I blog…I mean have you seen my hobbies?
Tell me about yourself!
