Getting to know you…and me :)

It’s been a few weeks since I started this blog and I can’t tell you how much i’ve enjoyed it.  I appreciate all of your comments and gain so much strength and excitement through reading your stories and learning more about what motivates you.  I thought it might be fun to do a little “get to know you” post.  There are so many people I have communicated with over the past few weeks that I don’t know and have never met. I thought it would be fun if we were able to get to know each other a little better through this post?  If you are reading this, I want to get to know you!  I haven’t shared too much about myself, outside of  my about me  and my few posts, so here is a little more about me and my life.

Hi, its me…nat or nattie to dave, nanny to the fam, nat to friends..aka Natalieme carFact: I like to braid the front part of my hair

11111111Fiction: I hate the rain

Ok, I think thats enough pictures for now.  I’ll end with a few other things that I love:  I love all things fitness, love to eat, love to sleep, love to cuddle, love to watch tv, love to be with family, love the rain, love to travel, love to take naps, love to wake up early, love to talk, love to dance, love to learn, love to laugh, love to love.

I’d love to learn more about you. I know most people hate when they are asked to stand up and tell something special or unique about them selves, but since this is a blog I won’t make you stand up, I’ll only ask that you tell me something unique or special about yourself.  Give me some insight into who you are. Take the opportunity while your at it to appreciate yourself for who you are!! Can’t wait to read what you have to say!


What is something unique about you?

    Such a cute post! This is fun, I’ll play!

    1. I have several nicknames, but the ones I get called most are Momo and Mo.
    2. Nowhere right now. I just moved from Boston to PA for my husband’s job, and the job search for me is rough!
    3. My husband, my family, my friends, my puppy and Eric Bana
    4. Just a dog. Rufio, a miniature schnauzer. He’s my baby!
    5. We got married October 14, 2007. Almost 2 years now! It goes fast
    6. Meadville, PA. It’s north of Pittsburgh, south of Erie and east of Ohio. Big change from where I used to live
    7. red wine, orchids, the beach, Sting, funny movies, good food, cities, Israel, cheesy TV, meeting new people, rubber duckies, pedicures, working out, a great book, a comfy bed, traveling…the list goes on and on!
    8. I do. I know that by writing down my goals, I am more likely to achieve them. I felt so inspired by the other blogs I was reading, and wanted to give back and thought that sharing my goals and thoughts with others would be helpful for myself. Now I love blogging, and the blog community. I just wish there were some bloggers that lived near me that I could meet!

    This was such a cute post. I’ll play…

    1. I have a ton of nicknames. The ones I get called most are
    2. Nowhere right now. I just moved from Boston to northwestern PA for my husband’s new job, and haven’t found a job yet 😦
    3. My husband, family, dog, friends and Eric Bana ❤
    4. No kids, but I have a miniature schnauzer, Rufio. He's my baby
    5. We got married October 14, 2007…almost 2 years! It goes by fast!
    6. Northwest PA. North of Pittsburgh and south of Erie. Almost Ohio! I never thought I would live in the Midwest!
    7. red wine, orchids, the beach, a good book, silly reality TV, funny movies, a great meal, working out, eating, cities, traveling, rubber duckies (I collect them), baseball, the list goes on and on.
    8. I do have a blog. I felt so inspired by the blogs I was reading. I realized reading them was making me a healthy person, so I started a blog to give back, hoping I could inspire someone as well. I love blogging and the community, I just wish I knew of some bloggers near me so I could meet them!

    I don’t think there is anything I could tell you that you don’t know! But I love your post! I laughed when you said you love to wake up earlier, but I really do believe you! I love all your pictures! You are so pretty sister!!

      Best sister ever.

      ha…and it’s true I really do like to wake up earlier. Of course I love a good sleep in and plenty of naps, but somehow when I wake up earlier I feel better. DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO….twighlight zone.

    You know me too. So I will just say that I don’t like how no one else said how much they weighed in your last post and now I feel like you should erase my comment that did!!!! Embarrassing!!! J/K I don’t care (kinda) or I guess I shouldn’t care, but I do (kinda). 🙂

    • September 17, 2009 at 3:53 pm

      I’ll erase it if you really want me to.. but hello you shouldn’t care, you look like a model. I think no one else posted it because it was a hypothetical question 🙂 i liked that you answered it though….it means you are confident in it..and you should be!!

  6. September 17, 2009 at 7:20 pm
