  1. I chuckled at the "maybe I should get out of Idaho" comment ;) haha! I love How to Train Your Dragon and Pitch Perfect!! I love getting to know more about you. Isn't that funny how in sports you always seem to start going by your last name?!

  2. Oh girl. I am all about the chips and salsa, too! Give them allllll to me. Yum Yum Yum!

  3. I could watch Ever After every single day. And I could literally live off of chips and queso. Love your list!

  4. My Momma actually just moved from Idaho to Pennsylvania last week (to be closer to me) but I sitll have and Auntie and cousins out there. I believe they lived in Moscow at some point but two are in Post Falls now. It's so pretty out there...why leave it? :)

  5. I was also a Bath & Body Works associate! The discount was both dangerous and helpful. Hey, guys! It's a Bath & Body Works Christmas! Everyone gets Bath & Body Works! YOU get Bath & Body Works, YOU get Bath & Body Works...

  6. Ever Afterrrr! Love that movie! OMG you worked at Bath and Body Works? Did you ever get out of there with your paycheck intact? Love all of your nicknames for your pup, our dogs get called at least 5 nicknames each. :)

  7. Your list of favorite foods is basically my life. I would do anything for any of those things haha!!! You have been to a lot of cool places, it makes up for never moving out of ID :) And Big Bang Theory is my favorite show ever!!! Have a great weekend!

  8. I LOL'ed at "Places I'd rather be: a brewery" probably a little more than I should have. YES to all of the chips and queso!! Aw, shucks :) I feel so honored! Have a great weekend, girlfriend!

  9. In bed or at a brewery... we might be sisters!!! Have a great weekend Laura!

  10. Thank you so much for joining in the fun! I can't wait to see what else you come up with this month :) This is such a perfect introduction post. And OMG I used to work at Bath and Body Works, too! I keep finding out these little gems about you that makes me pretty sure we're BFFs separated at birth.

  11. I just watched Ever After for the first time since I was younger and wow did I forget how beautiful that movie is. I love it.

  12. I am a major "Harry Potter" fan. I read all of the books recently, so now I am a little disappointed with some parts of the movies. And I used to be a seasonal associate at Bath & Body Works. Did you like it? I liked the actual job, but my store was poorly managed.

  13. LOVING this post- I learned so much about you! :) And now I know we're destined to be friends because I would live on chips/salsa/queso if I could ;) Also, New Girl freakin' rocks!
