Flattered Beyond Belief

CJ and I have been honored with the One Lovely Blog award from Jenna over at a little blue and Kristin from Change is Necessary for Growth.

Thank you so much, girls! Part of our duties, should we choose to accept them (and we do!) is to list 7 little factoids about ourselves. I'm up first...

7 Things You'd Probably Never Need to Know about Ashley...
  • America's Funniest Home Videos can break me out of any funk I'm in within seconds. I usually end up laughing so hard I'm crying and can't breathe. 
  • I dream of moving to Austin, TX. I want to own a home, have a large yard with an outdoor living area, and have at least 2 kids. Basically, I strive to be Tami Taylor. This is a 180 from what I thought I'd want for my life not five years ago.
  • In talking about moving, I have lived in 3 countries including the U.S. When I was a wee one, my dad was a chaplain in the military and we were stationed in Gelnhausen, Germany. I completed second grade on an army base and when we moved back I was told that I'd slip in and out of German during conversations. I also did a study abroad in Canterbury, England my second year of college. I learned TONS while there, but the most important skill by far to come from that was how to manage money.
  • I am obsessed with the Olsen twins. Ashley is my favorite.
  • I have to be careful with what I watch when it comes to movies and t.v. shows because I take on all the emotion of what I've just seen. For instance, Monday nights are difficult for Jeff after the drama of an episode of Gossip Girl :)
  • I make it a point every day to enjoy a frozen treat before bed. My favorite is ice cream (usually coffee or chocolate), but I try to change it up with popsicles, smoothies, fudge bars and the like.
  • I'm working on adopting a "Grin and Bear it" attitude, which does not come naturally and I usually react like the sky is falling when I hear bad news. This one is very much a work in progress, and I must practice everyday. 

Carli is up next!

  • I grew up on a farm in a small town in Wisconsin.
  • I moved to Los Angeles six years ago completely alone with no job or friends because I woke up one morning with the urge - two weeks later I was on a plane.
  • I absolutely HATE exercising so I tried pole dancing for fun and for a new way to get toned. Eight months later and I am obsessed! I dance five days a week, have a better body and feeling sexier than ever!
  • I absolutely adore animals, especially dogs! I cannot pass one without wanting to pet/talk to it!
  • I hate wearing make-up.
  • I cried when Mod Flanders died on The Simpsons.
  • Whenever I introduce myself for the first time people always misunderstand me and think my name is Curly Jo.
