Story of My Life in 250 Words or Less

Have you guys seen the "Blog Everyday in May" challenge over at Story of My Life? Weeell, I really doubt I can blog everyday for a month, nor do I really want to, but I thought it might be fun to pick and choose a few prompts and link up. Especially since I am terrible at sharing things about my non-internet personal life. So here goes:

I was born in Oklahoma City to two awesome parents. After me came a sister and two brothers. I was the stereotypical oldest child – bossy, a perfectionist and organized. I grew up in church and loving Jesus. I am so thankful for that. I was homeschooled until 4th grade, and then I attended a small private school where my mom was a teacher. My junior year I transferred to a larger private school and it was a bit of a culture shock. We never went to bed hungry or anything, but we definitely didn’t have a lot of money. I was able to go to the school because of the generosity of others and I loved it, but it was definitely a weird experience to have my dad drive me to school while all my friends drove Lexus’s and BMWs. I graduated and went to a small liberal arts university about 40 minutes away from my family, and majored in Public Relations. During my summers I worked at a camp, which is where I met Eric. We got married the fall after I graduated from college and we worked at the same camp full-time for about a year. After that we moved to Tulsa, where we only lived for 6 months because Eric got a great job in the same town that I got into grad school. We bought a house and we’ve lived here now for nearly 3 years. We added a ridiculously cute dog to the mix and life is just really lovely.

255 words. Not bad.


  1. I love this!!! 255 is not bad at all! ;) This is the second post I've seen about this... May need to dabble in it ;)

    I seriously adore yours and Eric's story.... I'm so glad things have worked out so well for you!!! <3

    Glad to know a little more about you, too ;)

  2. I majored in Public Relations too!! :) Twinsies.

  3. Fun! I'm glad you're doing the linkup. I still haven't decided if I will, but I am loving reading about all the life stories in 250 words!

  4. Way to make the word limit! I couldn't do it. Haha. I love this post. I might have to do the same. Have a great weekend!

  5. Loved learning more about you! I went to a tiny all girls school from K-12 so its always interesting to hear about others' experiences - usually very different :)

  6. I like this idea! I might just have to pick and choose a few too :) You were apparently the cutest little girl! I met my Hubby at a mutual job as well.


Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
