The Facts of Kimmie

Linking up with Whitney over at I Wore Yoga Pants to Work because this looks like too much fun =]

Fact- I run because I really really really really like dessert.  Cupcakes, ice cream, cookies...da-lish.

Fact- I was born in the Philippines.

Fact- I come from a large military family...guess the branch ;)

Fact- I love weddings and I think nothing is more romantic than an engagement announcement or a proposal.

Fact- I'm really good at the creative side of advertising but I don't know if I would be a good fit for an ad agency.

Fact- I love cooking up a delicious dinner.  I find it really fun to be able to mix different tastes, spices, etc. to create a great meal.

Fact- I greatly disliked being a stay-at-home wife. I'm not knocking anyone who is a stay-at-home mom or wife, it really wasn't for me.

Fact- I don't really have any great drive to meet my birth dad.

Fact- One of my life ambitions is to write a novel and get it published.  I would love to have short stories published in a magazine.

Fact- I'm a hopeless romantic.

Fact- I hope that Ryan and I will have a wedding ceremony and reception someday.

Fact- I periodically get mad boughts of baby fever.

Fact- My dad is one of my favorite guys.  He's technically my step-dad but I've always looked to him as just being good ol' dad.  He came up with the concept of Friday present where every Friday he gives my mom a little gift.

Fact- I love blogging and following other awesome bloggers.  It's a fun way to just take a deep breath after a long day and I may or may not live vicariously through their adventures.


  1. YAY for sharing more about you! Love this. And there is nothing wrong with running because you love sweets, I feel the same way!


    1. Haha amen! I was doing sprints today and afterwards I was thinking, "I hope the cookout we're going to has cookies." I'm terrible! :P

  2. #1 fo'sho! And your dad sounds really sweet - Friday gifts are so thoughtful!

    1. My dad is really awesome about picking the perfect gift. I remember one Christmas, I made a list of potential things I would like and he went so above and beyond. He has great taste and is an awesome dad.

  3. Yay for books!! and I love weddings excited for the million weddings I have in the next 2 years hahaha

    1. Two of my favorite couples are getting married this year and a lot of my military friends are having their "big" ceremonies after they got married in a courthouse, which what my husband and I ended up doing. I'm really excited for this because there is just so much love and adorableness! Plus, I'm the matron of honor for one of the weddings and I can't wait to celebrate their day.
