10 Things You Didn't Know About Me

Y'all, I hit 10,000 followers on Instagram yesterday.  Like, what?? If you would have told me 9 months ago that I would hit 10k followers on my Instagram this year, I would have thought you were absolutely crazy. I am blown away by your support over the last 9 months and am truly grateful for each and every one of you!  This blogging journey that I started just 9 short months ago has been a LOT of work, has been hard and frustrating at times, and has pushed me out of my comfort zone.  But it has given me the opportunity to learn something totally new, meet some amazing women, and has been SO. MUCH. FUN.  I wouldn't be here without YOU - the love, support, and encouragement from my husband, friends, family, and followers has been amazing and for that I am forever thankful {I'm not crying, you're crying}.

Okay, enough of the sappy stuff.  If you're new here, my name is Brooke, and I'm an engineer/runner/fashionista living in Atlanta, Georgia.  I love  styling and sharing affordable fashion sprinkled with travel, beauty, fitness, and just plain ole life.  In honor of hitting 10k followers on Instagram, I’m sharing 10 things you might not know about me.

Before we get into the list, let's talk about this cute outfit.  I am loving this chambray dress because it is so versatile, perfect for layering all of your cozy fall accessories, AND is on sale for just $15! I paired it with the softest chenille scarf, quilted puffer vest, and my favorite cognac boots to create a perfect look for fall.

Now let's get back to the list of 10 things you probably don't know about me.  Here goes...

1.  I have been a runner since I was 10 years old.  I even competed in the Junior Olympics in 5th grade in the 1500m.  

2. I am an Industrial & Systems Engineer by trade, but now I am a Business Development Manager in AT&T's Internet of Things organization focusing on our Connected Car accounts.

2.  I hardly watch TV {who has time for that with a full-time job + blog?}, but when I do, it’s Friends, Big Bang Theory, or This Is Us.

3.  I am blind as a bat but I hate contacts, so I wear glasses while at work and when driving. If you ever see me out and about and I look at you like you’re a crazy person, it’s because I can’t see you. 

4. I hate feet with every ounce of my being. Like seriously, keep your feet away from me or I’ll freak out. 

5. I met my husband Fielding while at school at Auburn University, and we go back to Auburn for all of the home football games. War Eagle!

6. Our dog Lilly is named after Lilly Pulitzer because I worked in a Lilly Pulitzer boutique all through high school and college.  Our dog Sammie is named after Samford Hall - which is the beautiful building on Auburn’s campus where Fielding proposed to me.

7.  I am left handed for writing and eating, but I kick, throw, golf, bat, bowl, etc. right handed. 

8.  My favorite foods are steak and mac n cheese, and I eat like a 500 lb man. Any of my friends, family members, or co-workers can attest to that. 

9.  I don’t like Pumpkin Spice Lattes...yeah, I said it. Don’t @ me! 

10. I grew up going to the lake in Alabama, so I love to slalom water ski {ski on 1 ski instead of 2} and am pretty darn good at casting a fishing pole. 

I hope you learned a little something new about me today.  I want to get to know you, as well! Tell me something about you in the comments below.  Thank you again for your support and for following along on this crazy blogging journey of mine!
