The Facts of Amy

There are quite a few new faces around these parts, so Whitney’s link up couldn’t of come at a better time. Today I’m going to give y’all, The Facts of Amy.

I am obsessed with time. Seriously being even a minute late to anything freaks me out. I am always early and I don’t know how to arrive fashionably late. I blame it on being the product of two Army vets, one of which is a nurse. Double whammy folks.

I have an engineering degree. I graduated from Texas A&M {also known as the best university in the world} with a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Distribution from the Dwight Look College of Engineering. BAM!

I am obsessed with all things Disney. I’ve done the Disney Princess half marathon the past two years and can’t wait to do it again. I love being at Disney World and the child-like aura about it. I love all Disney movies, know the words to nearly all the Disney songs and I’m okay with that. It’ll make me a cool mom one day 🙂

I am a former cheerleader. Not only did I cheer in high school, but I cheered competitively. That’s pretty serious stuff right there. Y’all can laugh and point fingers all you want, but competitive cheerleading is no joke. And yes, I can do a back flip.

I have lived in 5 states and 7 cities, and I have moved a total of 14 times. 5 of these account for the 5 different places I lived in College Station {one for each year of school + an extra semester}.

I’m obsessed with animals and have a membership to the Houston Zoo. I can bring a friend for free if you wanna join 🙂

I run for me. Running is my passion. Not everyone loves it. In fact, most people hate it. Running keeps me grounded, helps me relieve stress and gives me a sense of accomplishment. I think I would be a different person today if I didn’t start running several years ago.

I love to sing. I sing all the time…in the shower, in my car, in front of people, into karaoke microphones and sometimes even dressed as Madonna in front of hundreds of people on cruise ships. I should probably mention that I’m not really a good singer. It doesn’t bother me much.

Yes, that’s me singing on stage dressed as Madonna. I even had backup dancers. Jealous?

I am a huge Harry Potter nerd. True story. I love Harry Potter and I’m not ashamed at all. In 2012, I re-read all 7 books between August and October and loved them just as much as the first 2 times I read them.

I would do anything for my friends and family. They are my everything. They hold me up when I need it, so I would do whatever it takes to do the same in return. I try to always be there for my friends when I would want them there for me. Life isn’t easy and it’s harder alone!

I am a morning person. I love waking up in the morning. My best hours of the day come before noon. This is when I am at my most productive, I am the most alert and I am the happiest. I wake up far too early on the weekends. This is probably why I’m old and go to bed before midnight on Friday and Saturday.

I’m hate being dirty. Even as a child I didn’t like to get messy. I would have my parents stick their feet in the sandbox so I could sit on them. This way my butt wouldn’t be dirty. This trait has followed me through the years. I like being dirty when I do mud runs. That’s about the only time though.

I hate cold cheese. I like cheese on pizza, grilled cheese, queso dip and well that’s about it. I never get cheese on sandwiches, burgers, fries, etc even if it’s hot. If the cheese is cold is a total no go. I hate it. Thinking about people eating cheese cubes gives the me chills and freaks me out.

I am terrified of scary movies and scary stories. I don’t watch them. Period. They give me nightmares. The last scary movie I saw was The Ring. I seriously freak myself out beyond belief. The other night, the hubs referenced “Slender Man” who I never heard of. The hubs compared him to the Boogie Man who I thought lived under your bed. He proceeded to tell me the real stories behind these creatures and I about lost it. He told me these at nighttime. I didn’t sleep well Sunday night. True Story.

So there you have it. Some of the wonderful facts of Amy! I hope you learned something new and that you don’t think I’m a total freakazoid!!!

So what should I know about you?! Leave a comment with your favorite quirk!!!

Until next time…
With love and God bless,
