 So who am I? What makes me tick? Here are 20 things you probably don’t know about me.

1. I am an only child yet I have several nieces and nephews that call me  ‘World’s Best Auntie’. I spoil them rotten then send them home! 


2. I took my first flight at age 3. I went to Jamaica with my parents.


3. I love riding trains and the metro. 


4. I am insanely crazy about my parents. They are awesome.


5. I have a huge fear of big animal mascots. I have no idea why.

6. I am fluent in English, French, and Spanish. Yes. Oui. Si.


7. I have never seen the movies (cue gasp in 3…2…1)  Sound of Music or Pulp Fiction.


8. I LOVE to eat.


9. I workout often. See #8.


10. Wine is a food group in my house.

11. If you talk to me before I’ve had my morning coffee you may get punched in the chest.


12. I can’t eat watermelon in public. I have issues.

13. I would rather eat my mother’s home cooking than go to a restaurant.

14. I love to cook and would be giddy if someone would upgrade my kitchen. Really you can, I won’t be mad.


15. There is a baby born every year on my mother’s side of the family. She is one of 14 (hence the reason I’m an only child).


16. I’m from Los Angeles (where I got my Bachelor’s degree and teaching credential), lived in France (where I got my MBA) and Spain and now call Charlotte home. I have perfected my y’all.

17. I love to laugh.


18. People who don’t have common sense confuse me.


19. I hate shopping, unless it’s for kids (see #1). I do love buying carry-on bags. I have at least 10.


20.  I am a girlie girl. But if you ask me to sit through a chick flick I may bite you.
