About Me and What I am Obsessed With

I thought I would write a post letting you know a little more about me. I am 26 years old, married and I live near Tampa, FL. I don't have kids yet, but hope to in a few years. I am currently retaking a few college courses so that I can score high on the PCAT (the worst test ever invented! Similar to the MCAT) and get into Pharmacy School. In the mean time, I am working as a Pharmacy Technician for a Long Term Care Facility (ie. I fill prescriptions for nursing homes/ALF's) and not getting paid crap. I started this website because I really love blogs and especially blogs with giveaways. I was spending so much time on them that I decided I needed to start my own. Now for some of my favorite things:

Things I am obsessed with
  1. My Husband and My Puppy- I have a wonderful Husband that I have been with for almost 8 years (we started dating when I was 18). He means the world to me and I am so lucky to have him. My Puppy is not actually a puppy...he is a little over 2 now. He is a beautiful black chihuahua with a white stripe that runs from his chin all the way under his belly & a little white on his paws. His name is Tequila and he is a wonderful dog that has brought me so much joy and love.
  2. Music & Concerts-  I absolutely LOVE music. I also love going to concerts.I like I lot of different types of music, but my favorites are Punk, Alternative and Rock. I have been to hundreds of concerts and when my favorite bands come to town I HAVE to see them...everytime! Who are my favorites? Rise Against, Blink 182, Jimmy Eat World and Ludo. I know most of you have no idea who the last two are...and maybe no idea who any of them are. You should look them up. They are wonderful and they all 4 put on a great performance. I have also met the guys in Rise Against, Jimmy Eat World and Ludo and they are all really nice, cool guys.
  3. Eyeshadow- When I said in my Orglamix post that I am obsessed with Eyeshadow, I wasn't joking. I seriously have a ton of eyeshadow &; I still buy it all the time. I actually just made a $30 purchase of eyeshadow from Orglamix. : ) As I have said before, if I only have 2 minutes for makeup...forget everything else, just put on the eyeshadow! I like bright colors too. My favorite colors are baby blue or turquoise. Sounds weird...but, I pull it off well. 
  4. Crime Shows- I absolutely love them! CSI, CSI:NY, NCIS, Criminal Minds, Bones, Law & Order, the list goes on...I love them all! My Husband and myself rent them on Netflix. We start with the first season and watch it all the way through and we are kind of obsessive about it. We have been known to wait for the mail man and then watch all 12 episodes at once! They are addicting. The best and most addicting ones don't really classify as crime shows....but, 24 and Prison Break (RIP). I am super obsessed with those two.
  5. Books- I read every night before I go to sleep. I also read at work and at school on breaks. Normally, if you see me carrying my stuff...I have my current book. I love reading. I really love fiction novels that are thrillers, mysteries, medical thrillers (ie, Robin Cook), sci-fi and fantasy. Of course, I love Harry Potter and Twilight! Here are a few of my favorite authors: Terry Brooks, Donita K. Paul, John Grisham, R. A. Salvatore, Robin Cook, James Patterson, Angie Sage, Stephenie Meyer, Jenny Nimmo,  Garth Nix, Eoin Colfer, and John Flanagan. Just to name a few!
  6. Freebies and Giveaways- you probably noticed this one on your own! I have been entering for freebies and giveaways for about 6 months. I have received dozens of shampoos, drink mixes, lotions, free dog toys, free magazines, and so much more. It is exciting and addicting to get all of these free things. Beware!

Thanks for sharing! It's always nice to get to know other bloggers. Your giveaways are the first I've entered. I hope to win, which reminds me, I better go tweet! Also, I have some giveaways starting this week, will you check them out? One more thing... You need a button, so I can add it to my blog!

I will definitely enter your giveaways! I know I need a button! I have had 3 different people tell me they are going to make one for me...and none have followed through. I don't have photoshop, but I have a generic program. I guess I am going to install it & play around with it this weekend. I'll try to make one and get it to you soon. Thanks hon!

Good to get to know more about you. I also love Jimmy Eat World. One of my favorites.

Crystal said...

Dolce Baci...I will check it out! : )

Danielle...SO glad to hear it! I was hoping someone out there would know them. I saw them with Foo Fighters (Amazing too) and Against Me a few years ago & no one knew who they were. It was so depressing! I also met Jim Adkins once...he's really cool & completely modest.
