Ghost Mode and Some Random Facts

To appease the angry mob outside of my window all day and night, I now give you a new blog post.

As I'm sure you loyal readers have noticed, I've basically been in ghost mode since Thanksgiving. It wasn't deliberate at first but now it kind of is. I'm not really ready to blog about some of the things that have been going on and keeping me pretty occupied so I just haven't been blogging at all. In addition, I'm going on a real vacation next week and will be happily out of touch with society for 5 days.

BUT before I leave I thought it would be fun to follow suit with my Texan transplant friend Celeste from Our Fabulous Life in the Suburbs and give you a few fun facts about me that you likely don't know from just following my blog. Make sure you stop by the 'burbs and say hello to Celeste! Her blog is a completely different vibe from this one primarily because she not only loves kids, but also has one. And he's actually cute! Super cute! Which must be true since you know I can't lie about these things.

Anyway, on with the list!
  1. My first pet was a turtle I named Michaelangelo after the Ninja Turtles and I found him outside of a dumpster with my dad. I was kicking rocks and was about to kick him when his little head popped out! We kept him for a while and I fed him way too much lettuce.
  2. I can't actually tell you what size shoe I wear. Running shoes are always a little off from normal sizes but in my house right now I have shoes ranging from a kid's 4 1/2 up to a woman's 9. And they all fit. Go figure.
  3. I'm an excellent dancer. Actually I don't know if this is true or not but I love to dance and do it almost daily. For some reason it's one of the few things I'm always confident doing and I've never really received any negative feedback about it.
  4. I'm a junior national champion debater/public speaker. I competed in speech, drama and debate all through middle school and a little in high school and have an obscene number of trophies from invitational, state and national level competitions. To this day I'm still a really good public speaker but suck on a social interaction level which is weird.
  5. I've traveled to 5 foreign countries but have hardly seen anything in the United States.
  6. I really like fish tanks and have always wanted a salt water tank for some strange reason. I loved having a fish tank as a little girl and named all of my fish very clever and original names like Chelsea Clinton the 5 year old Catfish and Glowria the Glow Fish. I also had a beta fish named Napoleon all throughout college.
  7. I'm very afraid of birds.
  8. I once saw Kelly Rowland outside of a New York City H&M during a school trip and completely underreacted. I saw Nick Lachey outside of a Cincinnati hotel and completely overreacted to the point that he actually smiled and waved.
  9. I seriously considered dumping The Colonel if my cat didn't like him.
  10. I'm extremely particular about which size silverware goes with which type of food and almost never use tablespoons for anything other than measurements.
Ok, so now you know I'm a total freak. What about you? What's your inner freakdom?

  1. I totally love this!!!
    That's awesome you're a good public speaker!!! I do it, but not sure I'm good at it :)
    I would have freaked out too about Nick Lachey

Year 30

Is this thing on? I've been struggling with a bit anxiety out of nowhere over the past year and a half so in an attempt to keep my head from spinning I'm going to try my return to writing.

I turned 30 in February and it's seriously been my best year. Suddenly I stopped caring so much about things, and more about *gasp* my family and friends. Weird right? But in caring more about people, I also started to care less about their opinions on my life choices. That said, I am going to provide you with a VERY brief rundown of the 3 major life events happening right now:


We are buying a house! Maybe... Yay right? Back in October I found this really great house under a lease option contract that we ended up snatching up. It's in a nice, established neighborhood where *most* people own and genuinely take care of their houses. Not at the Hank Hill lawn level but I'm talking seasonal outdoor decorations and it just happens to be the neighborhood other parents bring their kids t…

Burn the Past

One of my old pastors used to say "God gave you two ears and one mouth so you could listen twice as much". I've always been a pretty decent listener. I was always in the top 5 during games of Simon Says and with a mother like mine, you needed to do your best to prevent her repeating herself. But one area where I really struggle is listening to what God says to me and what direction to go in my life. I'm a control freak. There, I said it. There have been times in my life where I've had to schedule not only when I would have free time but what I would do during said free time. I've literally put "watch tv" on my calendar. So is it any surprise that when someone says to "let go and let God" I have trouble leaving my entire life and existence to someone other than myself? Not only that, but someone who isn't a someone at all? To someone I can't see, don't understand, don't know how to listen to and just have to have blind faith…

Guess Who's Back

Sometimes my thoughts get really overwhelming and when that happens I usually have to do something active and relatively creative. I've been using coloring books since before they were cool and strangely baking is still a big go-to for me but there's also writing. Today while lamenting to the husband he suggested I write a blog to try to just get shit out. So that's what I'm doing.

We are moving back to Louisville. Yay? I guess that's still TBD. I love Louisville, I really do and I have for years but like a weird, slightly dysfunctional, long term relationship, love just wasn't enough. I felt trapped and suffocated. I had created this identity box for myself and while it worked for a while it eventually turned into my coffin. It was tiny and I didn't feel like it could fit everything I wanted to be a part of my identity. 15 months ago I was exercise and non-profit worker Rennay. That's it. When we moved I realized it was a true clean slate. Absolutely n…
