Hi, my name is (What?) my name is (Who?)

So, I’ve gotten a bunch of new fabulous followers so I figured I would introduce myself and basically let you know what this blog is all about. Just making sure that you are aware of the awesomeness ridiculousness you have signed yourself up for.

My name is Faith and my stud muffin of a husband's name is Sean. I talk about us a lot. And when I say a lot, I mean like 95% of this blog is about us.

Fun right? (me)
No. (you)
Oh. (me)

Moving on.

I picked the picture below because hubs looks good in it. He is normally making some type of face because he hates the whole picture taking obsession I have. So any time you see a picture of him on the blog just know that I basically had to force beg him for it.


We have fur babies. Fella our 5 year old kitty and Izabella our rescued 1 year old dog.


If Fella was the dog and Izabella was the cat, Izabella would have been Fella's dinner last night.

Izabella has become my new best friend. She follows me everywhere I go. I mean everywhere. I have had to lock the bathroom door on her because our bathroom is too small for her to be all up in my business.

Fella was my best friend but he is mad at me right now and has decided to live in the basement to spite me. I should charge him rent if he wants that entire space to himself. But I guess I understand why he is mad. There is a dog that believes she is the queen of our house and Fella refuses to be a part of that.

I like food a lot and use to post recipes a lot more regularly. Not sure when that stopped. I think I have to go back to sharing recipes since I cook all the time!


I eat too much ice cream. It is the reason I work out. If ice cream and I weren't BFFs I'd be skinny. True story.

I love fashion. I love clothes. But this is by no means a fashion blog. I do share where I purchased items because there is nothing nicer than sharing.

I have 3 sisters that I am obsessed with. You will hear about them often.


My parents have been happily married 38 years this month. They are my biggest role models. I love and respect them so much and truly believe that God blessed me in the family department.


I have a 2 year old nephew. He is the coolest. He really is. Even when he is stepping on my face I don’t mind it. He is a boy. They get rough.


I am also blessed in the in-law department. Sean's family is incredible. Also helps that my niece and nephews in law are the cutest.



We also like to travel. A lot. We've gone to some neat places. Our number one favorite place to visit is Vegas. Other favorites are Jamaica, Mexico and South Beach. This may be the reason why I'm not a fashion blogger. We like to spend our money going places.

{Vegas}



{Jamaica}






{Mexico}



{South Beach}



And then I blog about everything in between. Movies, reality television, you name it, I’ve probably blogged about it. Except drugs. Until today.

Hope you enjoyed that little introduction and that you will stay awhile. Because if you un-follow today, I'll take it personally and eat my body weight in ice cream. Although, I really wouldn't mind that.

Happy Reading!

Even though I've read your blog for a while now, I still learned new things! I'd much rather travel than spend a lot of money on clothes too! And congrats to your parents on 38 years!

Jenni@Story of My Life said...

I already knew a lot of this, but I really enjoyed the refresher!! Speaking of refreshing, YOU are refreshing, Faith. You just seem like such a genuinely happy, kind, cool person. Hope we get to meet IRL one day! :)

Nellie said...

Um I just love this. feel free to do this all the time, I don't mind at all. We heart you.

theINTELLECT said...

So this is my first time commenting on your blog, but after I came one day and saw you had made the blog private I was so upset. I guess in that moment I realized how happy your blog made me. I am currently a law student and seeing you on your journey (yep I'm a long time lurker) makes me smile. You are truly blessed in the friends and family department and as someone who has the same love and support it's great to see there are other brown girls like me having fun and living life. Keep writing and yes I have clicked the follow button.

New follower:-)

Pegster said...

Oh I enjoyed reading this little summary and I am not a new follower at all. Plus I love looking at pic and you totally indulged.

I thought my hubby was the only one who didn't care for pics, I always feel like I have to trick him.

Your nieces and nephew are so adorable.

Nice to meet you...again :)

Mrs W said...

Well hello there Faith! You are too darn cute!

Desi said...
