"Meet Me Monday" Blog Hop

I don’t normally post on Mondays, but I decided to participate in Rachel Firasek’s first MMM Blog Hop today. On this hop, bloggers will share a little about themselves that their readers/followers might not know about them, and then the readers/followers can share a little about themselves in the comments (if they want). The point is to have fun and learn new things about each other!

Below I have a list of links to all the blogs involved. Go check out as many as you can!

First off, check out my “About Me” page to find out some basic info about me (if you haven’t already). If you want to learn some things that might not come up in my posts or bio page, read on…

Three Things You Probably Don’t Know About Me

1) I have multiple cat-ears headbands. (I wore them all the time in high school and college, and still wear them during every performance I work. They started as an inside joke, but soon morphed into a sign of my goofy confidence and as an easy way for the actors to find me backstage.)

2) I’m addicted to food challenge/race/competition shows on the Food Network. (Did anyone else catch the finale on The Great Food Truck Race last night?! Be it the cake challenges, Cupcake Wars, Chopped, The Next Food Network Star, Iron Chef, etc—I’m hooked on them. I blame my younger brother…)

3) I want to learn and am trying to teach myself sign language. (I started learning some ASL when I was working at a daycare and we taught simple words to the kids—like please, thank you, mother, father, cookie, etc. I want to take an official class someday, but for now I’m using the internet, some flashcards, and a friend who knows it to learn.)

(Elvish Farewell)


  1. That's a lot of awesome sharing! I used baby sign language with both my daughters when they were very little, and it worked amazingly well. It was awesome getting to converse with them before they could really talk. Good luck learning ASL! For myself, I've been trying to teaching myself guitar. Limited success, so far, LOL, but I kinda love it!

  2. Yum peanut butter M&Ms sorry you lost me there for a minute!

    Top Three Animals: PENGUINS!!!! really I would like to answer that for all three but Horses and dog get up there in the list too!

  3. I took sign language classes in high school. I loved it. I'm not sure I could remember a lot of it now. I should have stayed in practice lol.
    I love the cat ears :) The Princess Bride and Indy are two of my all time faves too :)

  4. Well, I really need to learn ASL. Due to much needed surgery, I'm now deaf in my right ear. At some point I figure I'll go totally deaf - ASL would be a good thing to learn. Of course, now that budgets are non-existent in schools, they're cutting things like that in my state's community colleges. I just need to hang on for a little longer, lol...

    Great to meet you, Rachel!

  5. Hmmm, 3 favorites. Let's see.
    Movie: Cold Mountain
    Band: AC/DC
    Snack food: Austin cheese crackers with peanut butter
