Blog Every Day In May

Like alot of you out there... I'm going to give this a whirl:

There are 31 little prompts for 31 days in the month. I might stray from the curriculum here and there, but I think this will be a good little solution for my recent -- and crippling -- bloggers blog. Here goes...

Day 1: The story of your life in 250 words or less

I was born in Houston, TX in April 1986. I came home from the hospital to the home that my parents still live in today. I spent five years as a princess, ruling the roost all by my little self, until my sister (more happily known as the “lil nugget”) was born in 1991. I grew up in the any Memorial area of Houston, keeping myself very busy with dance, various sports and yearbook, to name a few. I went off to college at the University of Texas at Austin and immersed myself in all things Austin and the greek world at UT. I quickly joined a four-pack of best friends (one of which is still my roommate today) and studied, partied and grew up together the rest of our time at UT. I like to call those “the good old days” – the best in my life. 

The four-pack at our best.

When I graduated college, the love of my life, Chuy the poodle prince, came into my world. After a brief and miserable stint as a law clerk after college, I returned to my roots and moved to Dallas for a communications job. I explored the DFW metroplex for a couple of years then, rocked by a devastating breakup, came back to Austin. Now, I’m just trucking right along in my favorite city. I work from home and have a fabulous roommate and boyfriend that make my life better everyday. I’m as happy as I’ve ever been and I can’t wait to see what happens next for the Chuy and I.

(final word count: 257... I'll take it).

Seeya tomorrow!


  1. AHHH! I love the idea of having a little prompt for every day of the month. I think I am going to join! Also, that is so cool that you have lived in the same place almost your whole life! I move like every few years so I have a lot of homes, but none that have been with me that long. That is pretty special.

  2. I love the story summation of your life. And so happy for you that you're enjoying this part of life and have so many good things going for you!


Thanks for the comment! I"m sending you a big cuddly warm bearhug through the interwebs....
