Speed Date!

Hi friends! I'm super excited to be linking up with This Little Momma for her Speed Dating Party. Being pretty new to the blog world I'm always looking for new bloggers to follow, and hopefully get to know. I thought today I would start with the very most basic of information about me. So here we go!

I'm originally from a teeny, tiny town in Oklahoma. Population less than 3000. 

I am an only child, and I both love and hate it. I was pretty spoiled growing up, so I can't complain, but I do feel like I've missed out on that special bond people have with their siblings. 

My parents are amazing, and I consider them to be some of my very best friends. They divorced when I was about 22, and I think it was the best thing that could have happened for all of us. They now get along wonderfully, and are both in happy relationships. 
I have had the same best friend since the age of about nine (with one little friend break-up in junior high). She is an amazing lady and I adore her and look up to her more than she knows. She's more like a sister than a friend.
After a failed attempt at college (I hated it SO much) straight out of high school, I decided to move to Los Angeles to try and make it as an actress. I moved out there knowing basically no one, with a roommate I had met once or twice, and not a whole lot of experience. Needless to say I was back in a year. I was way too homesick to stay.

After returning from L.A., I wandered around aimlessly for a bit before ending up at Oklahoma State University. Best. Decision. Ever.

I met my second best friend, and my future husband at OSU. I also finally completed my Bachelor's Degree in Public Relations.
I married my husband (Arsen) in September of last year. He is funny, charming, kind, outgoing, crazy, thoughtful and super duper ambitious. He is the best thing that's ever happened to me, and I feel incredibly lucky to have found him.
Arsen is Armenian, and moved here at the age of six. Actually, today is the 20th anniversary to the day of them arriving in America!

Since my husband is Armenian, my children will be half (obviously) like the Kardashians. Here's hoping we have children who are that exotically gorgeous...

I am the proud, proud mama of a little furry shih tzu named Addie. Addison Jane to be exact. She is the apple of my eye, and I am shamelessly obsessed with her. 
My favorite things in the world are laughing, reading great books, shopping (for clothes, home decor, plants, paint, books, you name it), working on projects, lounging on the couch with my hubby and dog watching good TV, being outside when the weather is gorgeous (rare in TX), traveling to new places, learning new things, and spending time with family.

I am a super friendly person, but I'm also very reserved. I hold back before getting to know people. This has not helped my social life since moving to Texas, but I can't help it. I would rather have two great friends than 20 so-so friends.

Marriage has been quite a learning experience thus far. It's the best thing I've ever done, but it's also super challenging. I'm lucky that Arsen and I communicate wonderfully...if we didn't, I can't even imagine.

I am love, love, loving everything about blogging, and hope to be able to take it more seriously in the near future. It's a bit intimidating coming into something like this with not a lot of knowledge, but I'm excited to be giving it a try!
