Link-up: About Me! :)

Today I'm linking up with Neely at A Complete Waste of Makeup for a fun link-up she is hosting to introduce people to new blogs!




I'm excited to introduce my blog to some new readers!

I started blogging back in August--it was something I had thought about for awhile. I love to write and I have lots of favorite things, so I figured it was time to start my own blog after stalking reading so many fun blogs that are out there!
Me!!

My posts are often random and about whatever favorite thing I'm thinking of--I love nail polish, fashion and makeup, so I often write about things related to those. I love to participate in link-ups and there are some really fun ones out there!
I love nail polish!




I put this oufit together after seeing a similar one on Pinterest! :)
I live in northern Virginia, in a suburb of Washington D.C.. I've lived here since I was 7 years old (minus 4 years of college) and I love this area! I have two sisters who also live in the area, along with my parents--we are a very close family and they are so great!
My sisters and I at Christmas!

Younger sister Molly and I at the Gold Cup! :)

Older sister Eileen and I, Christmas of last year! :)

Although the traffic in our area is crazy, there are SO many fun things to do. I love to go into the city for concerts, museums, and sporting events. I was a theatre and dance major at James Madison University, so I'm very interested in the arts! 
I've seen Taylor Swift perform twice in DC--she is so great!!!
I also like to do yoga, run and do fun craft projects! I've always been a big fan of sports and my family has season tickets to the Washington Redskins--even though they had a terrible year, I still love them! :)

Love the Redskins! It is always so fun to see the games! (Welll, most of the time--if they are playing well! Haha..)

After college, I decided I wanted to be a teacher and I did a graduate program at George Mason University to get my teaching license and Master's degree. I teach at a fantastic elementary school and love what I do! :) It is definitely an interesting job and each day is a new adventure!
Me after the first day of school this year!
I love Pinterest and have quickly become obsessed with it! There are so many fun project ideas, fashion tips, and many other things that are constantly inspiring me! :)

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog!!

I love meeting new bloggers :) I've always wanted to live in the DC area after I went to boarding school in Virginia for 3 years! Until I can convince the fiance, i'm stuck in CA- not like that's such a horrible thing LOL.

Hope you have an awesome weekend!
