Shaking Things Up




I would consider myself a serial dater. What is that you ask? Well, it’s someone who is constantly dating because (1) they don’t want to be lonely, (2) they have found someone new and/or better, (3) they literally can’t function without having someone around, or (4) you just kind of click with someone once a relationship is over and it kind of happens where now you are in a new relationship!

For me, I would say it’s number 4. Over the years, I literally haven’t come up for air…. Sorry that’s graphic…not in the way you’re thinking.  What I mean is that I haven’t really let myself be single in between dating. I just kind of moved on to the next convenient person (that sounds rude). To clarify I never used the guys, I literally just clicked with someone right away and thought…’what the heck, why not?’

But the past year and a half, I have been single…hold for applause.

This is the first time in a long time that I have been single and it has been freaking awesome. I don’t have to report to anyone. I can sleep on whatever side of the bed I want. I can also eat whatever I feel like. I’m free!

Don’t get me wrong, I miss sleeping next to someone (sometimes, preferably during winter).  Oh and I miss someone being there when times are tough. Yea, I have friends but it’s different when you are in a relationship with someone. It’s a different level of emotional support.

For right now, I’m just going to be single…and see how this plays out. I’m not trying to find someone nor am I rushing to get married. If the stuff happens, then it happens.

My point is, being a serial dater, like me, it doesn’t leave you any room to grow as a person. How are you supposed to ever find someone when you don’t even know who you are or what you want?  Being independent and single is a choice that I think everyone should make at some point in their life. It really helps you find out more about yourself and what you see in a future husband and/or wife!

Also, for people who have made it this far in the post, I will be doing a giveaway in the next couple of days on my Facebook page! SHhhhhh! So check out my Facebook Page here for more details….soon!


As Always,



2 Truths and a Lie


Yesssss, another one! So, I’ve been nominated by Barb Knowles to reveal 2 truths and 1 lie, five times. Since she figured out the math in her last post, it will be 10 truths and 5 lies (Btw, thanks for doing the math Barb because, it certainly isn’t my strong suit).

Anyway, I have to tell you guys facts about me and you have to guess which is a lie!  Please write your guesses in the comments below and don’t cheat by looking at other people’s answers because they might be wrong (I literally took these few lines from Barb’s post so please don’t think I stole them!)  Let’s do this!


a. I’m scared of cockroaches.

b. I like to drink pickle juice.

c. My favorite dessert is carrot cake.


a. I have a Master’s in Sport’s Management

b. My favorite sport is hockey.

c. I am a former dancer.


a.  I’m 5’9”

b. I have 1 child.

c. I have 2 dogs.


a. I have read Harry Potter in 2 days.

b. I played Volleyball in College.

c. I’m named after my dad.


a. I have went skydiving.

b. I took a 2 week trip across country.

c. I use to take kickboxing.

Alright! Please write your answers in the comments section with the number and letter of each lie.  I will wait a couple of days to post the answers and  you can see how well you know me.  Or what a good guesser you are.  And I get to see if the readers who know me in real life and are friends of mine will know all the answers!

Now I will nominate a few people but please don’t feel obligated.  Good Luck!

I nominate…
