I'm the Kind of Girl Who...

“I think somehow we learn who we really are and then we live with that decision.” 

What a great Tuesday link up and a fun way for people to get to know me better!

I'm the Kinda Girl Who....
  • doesn't have a lot of extra spending money always, so when I shop I'm extremely picky
  • prefers beer to wine or fruity drinks
  • would rather sit around a campfire than go to a romantic movie
  • writes poetry but can only write when I feel inspired about something 
  • despite growing up Catholic would like to explore other religions because I feel I am missing something in the Catholic mass and community
  • loves a good book and craves reading
  • loves being around friends and people, but I hate large crowds
  • sings at the top of my lungs in my car with my kids...and alone
  • has dance parties with my kids when we are alone, only so I can practice in hopes I won't look like a fool the next time I dance (p.s. it never works)
  • second guesses my choices all the time whether it's a simple decision like what to wear or what to order or it's a major decision like applying for a new job 
  • thinks the media is ridiculous in the things they report on.  Some things in life, no matter how famous we are, should be private or really, who cares?  Recent example- Pregnant Kate in her bikini...is that really news?
  • doesn't have it all together at all. I fly by the seat of my pants most of the time, somehow it's mostly successful.  
  • is finally learning how to be comfortable in my skin.
  • feels I should have been a veterinarian and secretly wants to go back to school but I doubt myself 
  • feels that all life, no matter it's purpose, should be respected and give quality of life
What kind of girl are you? Leave a fun random fact about yourself!


  1. I'm with you on the beer, campfire and news. Also, go after what you want! If you want to be a vet, look into it. Don't ever doubt yourself, too many people already will.

  2. I was raised Catholic too, but I feel like there is so much you can learn from other religions! I used to want to be veterinarian when I was little. I don't know if I could stomach the surgery or gross injuries. The media is ridiculous - trust me, I was a reporter for a while. I second guess everything! Classic overthinker right here!

    Thank you so so much for linking up with me today!!

    1. That's why I didn't want to go to vet school at first, I couldn't practice on healthy animals. I've dealt with a lot of gross things since volunteering in rescue so I've gotten used to it. It still does kind of scare me though.

  3. I love campfires--that's just such a good feeling, to sit close by and feel the warmth!
