11 Facts About Me
1. If I could decorate my house house, all the furniture would probably be white.  I love the fresh and clean look.
2. Becoming a mommy has definitely made me have a different perspective on life and love.
3. I'm more self conscious about my body after having my daughter.  Looking at pictures before hand I now realize I had no reason to feel that way.
4. Pink was, is and will be my favorite color.  Any shade really.
5.  Having my nails done makes me feel like I have my life together.
6. Shopping. That's really all that needs to be said about that.
7. I am 21 and had a baby before I was married. (Yeah, I know. Don't judge.)
8. I got engaged at disney in 2012. Eep! It was so very perfect.  Only thing that would have made it better would have been my nails being done.
9. My mom is one of my best friends and biggest supporters.
10.  I meet my fiancĂ© in high school... I honestly never expected to have met the love of my life there.
11.  Up till now, life has definitely not gone by my "plan." I am definitely the kind of person who likes to be in control and know what is going to happen when.  So this aspect of my life is something I struggle with on the daily.  But I'm always reminded that everything happens for a reason and I wouldn't have my wonderful blessing of a daughter if things went according to plan.  Life wouldn't be the same without my princess.
