10 things you didnt know about me

10 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Steph!

Today on the blog I am sharing a personal post... 10 things you didn't know about me!  

I always love reading these kind of blog posts from others, so today its my turn! I had so much fun coming up with this list!  It has a little bit of everything, some of the things I love, some of the things I enjoy and even some things that just aren't for me! Hope you enjoy reading and get to learn a little bit more about me!

1.  I AM A MORNING PERSON.

I love to get up early and watch the sunrise! Seriously, it is one of my favorite times of the day.  Everything is quite, calm and peaceful. And there is nothing like getting up early and having the whole day ahead of you to accomplish 'all the things".

 

2.  I WENT TO AN ALL GIRLS ART COLLEGE.

Moore College of Art & Design is one of the only all girls art schools in the country with only about 500 students! It's located right in downtown Philadelphia next to the Franklin Institute! It was such a great experience being around so many talented, inspiring and creative women!

 

3.  I HAD JAW SURGERY.

Incase you were wondering why I have braces on, it has to do with my ongoing recovery from jaw surgery.  I know, it sounds a little scary and it totally was!  My mouth was wired shut for 5 days and I wasn't allowed to chew food for 3 months! Let's just say, I got pretty good with blending up foods and making smoothies!  It was definitely one of the hardest things I have ever done, but I wouldn't trade the journey for anything. I also blogged all about my journey and you can read it here.

 

4.  I'VE DONATED MY HAIR 3 TIMES.

The first time I donated my hair was in high school,  a whole 13"!  The 2nd time was in college and I donated 11". And the 3rd time was just a couple years ago and I donated about 10". Maybe, just maybe I'll do it again! What do you think?

 

5.  I LOVE CHEEZ-IT'S.

This might be one of my all time favorite foods, and for sure, my favorite snack! I pretty much like all the flavors but if I had to choose one, it would be the BIG Cheez-It's, not sure why but to me they just taste better! Excuse me, while I go grab a box to eat now!

 

6.  I DO NOT HAVE A GREEN THUMB.

I love having plants in our home or the thought of even growing a garden! But for some reason I just can just not keep plants alive, I am talking simple ones too like bamboo and succulents!  Either I water them too much or too little, not quit sure! So for now I'll stick to the fake greens!

 

7.  I AM ALWAYS COLD.

Yup, pretty much always cold unless its above 75 degrees. In the winter, you can find me hibernating, snuggled up with blanket, Uggs on because my feet are always cold and dreaming about summer!

 

8.  I DIDN'T EAT SHELLFISH FOR 20 YEARS.

When I was just a baby, I broke out in hives and the only thing I ate differently that day was shrimp.  So my doctor told my parents I was allergic to shellfish (I guess back in the day they didn't do allergy test to confirm this!) So for the first 20 years of my life I never ate any shrimp or crab!  Finally in my early 20's I got an allergy test done and it came back I was not allergic!  Not sure if I grew out of it or maybe I was just never really allergic to it in the first place!  Either way, snow crabs are now one of my favorite foods!!!

 

9.  I LOVE TO BAKE.

I probably get this from my mom! I love experimenting with new recipes and being creative with decorating cupcakes, cakes, cake-pops and basically anything sweet! After college, I actually had started a baking blog called Sweet Escape, which I guess you can say was my first entrepreneurial journey!

 

10.  I MADE MY FIRST VIDEO IN HIGH SCHOOL.

I guess you can say I was a filmmaker before I ever called myself one. I compiled all the photos and videos my friends and I took throughout our high school years and made a 15 minute long recap video of all the memories we shared together!  It is such a great memory to have!
