About

My home is Texas. I’m 21 and just got married.  We own a beautiful boxer puppy named Stella. I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in December 2o15 with my Bachelor’s degree. I don’t really have a direction for this blog yet, so we’ll just have to see where it takes us.

In an attempt to give you some background on the kind of person I am, here are 5 interesting (or uninteresting to some) facts about me:

  1. I love sports movies. I don’t love sports. I find they are incredibly moving and inspirational and since I’m a big softie, they are guaranteed to make me cry. Some of my favorites: We Are Marshall, Remember the Titans (duh.), Coach Carter.
  2. I’m a huge reader. The past few years have seen a decline in the number of books I read, which hurts my heart, but every time I get the chance, I jump into a new book. My most recent read, The Nightingale, was set in France during WWII. It was heartbreaking, and the end turned out to be a bit of a surprise (ask Avery, I was very vocal about it). Regardless, I would definitely recommend.
  3. Winter is my least favorite season. Anything lower than 60 degrees will have me shivering and in an unpleasant mood. That is why Texas will always be my home: reliable heat for most of the year.
  4. I can’t do a cartwheel. I feel as if this is one of those things every young girl learns as they grow up, but I never did. It makes me feel like a failure.
  5. Children’s sugary cereal is basically it’s own food group for me. Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Frosted Flakes, Froot Loops; all are tried,true, and Marissa-approved snacks.

  1. Also cannot do a cartwheel so I feel your pain. And can’t do a handstand. I also can’t do the monkey bars in the playground, and I’m not great with climbing frames…

    Basically anything that isn’t the slide is pretty much a pass, if I’m honest.
