Being that my blog is relatively new, I’m very honored to receive this One Lovely Blog Award. A very special thanks to Intraordinary who was sweet enough to nominate me!
So this award requires that I share 7 things about myself and I will take it as an opportunity to share some things which I hope gives you a little more insight about me the little person behind this blog.
I’m also going to nominate 7 others* which I will do later 🙂
So here are 7 things about me:
1: They call me Bunnie. B for short. My best friend dubbed this nickname and it has stuck forever now! I used to be a creature of the night- but motherhood changed has that. My schedule now rotates around the lil love of my life. I still get my best ideas at night and often have a hard time sleeping when I should be. . .that’s where caffeine comes in and Netflix!
2: I’m quite simply a total sap- I tear up easily at the thought of someone or an animal being wronged or harmed. I tear up when I watch a sad scene in a movie, read a sad story, even catching horrible news on TV, or reading a heartbreaking article. At the same time, I am very blunt and honest.
3: I used to be very confused and felt lost about my mixed heritage when I was younger. I had a hard time identifying myself with one race or another. But I am very proud of my mixed heritage today- I am ¾ Korean and ¼ Scottish-Irish.
My father was a very proud man who always emphasized his mixed heritage. He passed away suddenly completely blindsiding me in February of 2005. It forever will be the saddest day of my life.
4: My mom’s side of the family is quite artistic. I get all my artistic and creativity from that side. My brother is also very artistic and talented. We are very close.
I think I get my perverted humor and wit from my father. I relish in the company of funny people. My husband makes me laugh daily!
I actually sold my first painting when I was 13 yrs old. I still paint here and there- watercolors are my favorite medium. I like to make things. I like to take pictures. I’m naturally drawn to people with creativity. I can’t deal with boring. I also played piano all the way up until college. I miss it sometimes my beautiful piano.
5: I LOVE to cook and bake. I actually cook for my family every day except for the weekends or times we go out. It’s something I enjoy doing and was lucky enough to have inherited cooking skills from my mother. My mother has owned 4 restaurants and still always found the time to cook for us at home.
6: I’m a bonafide speed reader. I only utilize this skill when I want to. If I want to relish and enjoy a favorite book I will purposely read it slower. You can follow me on goodreads if you are interested in reading too.
7: I’m ambidextrous. This comes in reaaaalllly handy for nail art J I loved nail art for the longest because a close family friend ’s aunt owned a nail salon and she used to do cute fruit designs for me and I was so amazed and started experimenting back then! I really enjoy nail polish and actually anything beauty related.
