Meet Christina


Now that you know a little bit about my background and why I started this blog {see My First Post}, I’d figured I would also share some fun facts about myself. So here are 10 Things to Know about me!

P.S. I’d love to hear if you share in the same favorites, fun and guilty pleasures as I do!

1.     My favorite movie of all time is Lady & The Tramp. I even named my very own first dog after the main {dog} character, Lady. Second place goes to Night at the Roxbury, whose infamous head-bobbing song What Is Love is my cell ringtone.

2.     I am a horrible singer… but that doesn’t stop me from singing at the top of my lungs when no one else is around.

3.     I have an odd obsession with bubblewrap. There is something about popping bubblewrap that makes me grin like the Cheshire Cat! I love it so much that friends and family have gifted me pieces/rolls of bubble wrap. One time, my best friend even gave me a bubblewrap calendar so I could pop one bubble each day of the year!

4.     Dancing is a passion of mine! I danced most of my life through high school and a little in college. Mostly jazz but also contemporary, ballet, tap, hip-hop, modern, swing and Lindy Hop. I even choreographed a “surprise” dance for my wedding. I may not have the same moves I used to, but I will dance anywhere at any time just for fun!

5.     I have a major sweet tooth. HOWEVER, I have cut back from a roll of chocolate chip cookies a few times a week to actually being able to say “No” {from time to time}.

6.     The story of the Titanic fascinates me! {The actual ship, not the movie.} I already know so much about it and still always want to know more. It was the Titanic that made me want to originally become a marine archeologist {before I realized I didn’t want to study biology and chemistry}. One of my goals in life it to visit to visit the largest Titanic museum in Belfast that has life size replicas and the most original artifacts!

7.     I’ve never traveled internationally. Except once when I was a young kid… to Canada… back when you didn’t need a passport. I’m pretty sure that doesn’t count.

8.    I have a true addiction to the TV show FRIENDS! There isn’t a week {maybe even a day} that goes by where I won’t make some reference to the show. I even won a trip to New York City to visit the Central Perk pop-up shop in VIP style for the 20th Anniversary contest in 2014. Could I have BEEN any more excited!? 

9.     I am blessed to have a job that I love for a cause I am deeply passionate about! I am an event planner for the Midwest’s largest “No Kill” animal welfare non-profit organization, PAWS Chicago. I help plan several major fundraising galas to save the lives of thousands of homeless cats and dogs. Being that I’m a big animal welfare advocate and love {almost*} all animals, this is a dream come true! {*Note that I am not the biggest fan of most insects and amphibians.}

10.  Speaking of cats and dogs, I should mention that I have 5 kids… and by “kids” I’m referring to those of the furry, 4-legged kind {aka Furbabies}. I have 3 dogs, all of which were adopted, and 2 cats, which were both taking in as strays off the street. They are my world and are, of course, very spoiled. Meet our Furbabies with my husband {David} making a guest appearance: {from left to right} Josephine, Lady, Jaeden, Kahuna, Tristian!
