I have noticed a lot of new faces around here lately so I thought I would do a little “about me” post so that everyone can get to know me a little better. You can also check out my About Me page to get to know me even better.
ONE. I am a Respiratory Therapist by day and I love my job. I work with all types of patients from adults to tiny babies and I love the diversity. Most people think RT’s only do breathing treatments or incentive spirometers but that is far from the truth. We manage advanced airways (breathing tubes and trachs), manage ventilators, draw blood for arterial blood gases, perform pulmonary function tests, work in every area of the hospital from the ER and patient floors to adult and neonatal ICU’s, we fly on helicopters to help transport patients, and so many more things. It’s a really neat field to work in.
TWO. I love to travel and am taking an epic east coast road trip with my (non-blogging) bestie, Libby this summer. We are going to Washington DC, Philadelphia, Atlantic Beach, NYC, and Boston. If you have any suggestions on places to eat or things to do let me know!!
THREE. My favorite season will always be fall but summer is a close second. I love going to the pool during the day and then sitting on my back porch in the evenings watching my dog run all over my backyard. Summer is magical.
FOUR. I am addicted to McDonalds Frappes. I am currently a brand ambassador for all Central Arkansas McDonalds and I think that has only increased my addiction. HA! My Instagram is filled with a ton of frappe selfies. #SadButTrue
FIVE. I recently got into essential oils and am seriously loving them! I use them everyday for my allergies, tummy trouble, lady issues, and so much more. I have to admit that I was a serious skeptic at first but now I am loving them!! I have plans to make some sugar scrubs with them this week. I love a good sugar scrub!
SIX. I learned how to curl my hair with my flat iron a few months ago and it has been life changing. I don’t have to wash my hair every single day now and I love the look. On day one its pretty curly but on the following days its just kind of wavy and beachy. I love it!!
SEVEN. I love to read and listen to audiobooks on my drive to and from work everyday. I read everything from chick lit to murder mysteries. There is nothing better than getting immersed in a good book.
EIGHT. I am very OCD and have to have my house organized a certain way before I go to bed at night. I also have a certain routine I have to go through in the shower or I will forget something…I totally walked out of my house with only one leg shaved a few weeks ago. #TrueStory I also have to start a TV show from the first show and watch it all the way through. Netflix has seriously contributed to my OCD on this. #DamnYouNetflix
NINE. I am back in school for bachelor’s number two, this one in E-Commerce. It’s a mix of business and computer science. I am almost through and only have seven classes left!! However Accounting II may just be the death of me. Why must I have to take accounting???
TEN. I have a sweet puppy girl named Sophie who rules my house. I would say I rule it but if we are being honest she’s there more than me and totally gets her way 99% of the time. She’s a crazy one…LOL!!
What’s a random fact about you??
Robin (Masshole Mommy) says
Awwww, Sophie is just the cutest thing ever!! I love her And same here as far as summer goes – I am ALL about the beach and nice hot weather.
Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle says
Oh, Sophie! She is just a doll. My dog runs the house, too! At ALL times!
Diana Villa says
I’m addict to frappes too lol, they are so delicious, thanks for sharing more about you with us ^_^
Summer is my favorite season, too and I would live at the beach if I could (one of these days!). I need you to teach me how to curl my hair with my flat iron. :) Maybe you need to vlog about it?
Cute dog! I love reading and traveling too.
Megan Elford says
I too am a fellow McDonald’s Frappe addict! I love, love, LOVE them! I just hate having to go cold turkey when they stop making them for the winter :-(
Christy Maurer says
I loved your random list :) I am like that with shows now too thanks to Netflix…it’s pretty awful! Though I did actually start watching The Whispers 3 episodes in. Thanks to me, it will probably be cancelled soon. I’m convinced if I start watching any new shows on network tv they get cancelled….
Tracy @ Ascending Butterfly says
Bring your OCD over here please, my whole life could use some organizing! LOL :-)
Your puppy is so cute!! I love essential oils too and summer is my favorite season. I love the pool and the sun-I can’t take being cold!!
These were ten really awesome facts! I love the last one, Sophie is such a cute little dog; she must be tons of fun to have.
Liz Mays says
I’m not new to your blog but I learned some new things about you still! I like listening to audiobooks on my trips too!
Crystal Green says
These are all interesting facts about you. I am also addicted to McDonald’s Frappes! I got to do a review of doTerra Essential Oils and fell in love with them too.
I always love reading “about me” posts! They’re a wonderful way of getting to know the person behind the blog.
Nancy (@spiffykerms) says
I think you and I would get along juuuust fine. On my twitter bio I say I’m the HUGEST fan of McDonalds – I love their vanilla iced coffees during the summer. But now that I moved from Canada to the USA, I’m disappointed to see that they charge $2.16 for a medium iced coffee, because in Canada, during the summer months every drink any size is $1.00 not just the fountain drinks like they have here in the USA. Sigh lol…..first world problems :)
Uplifting Families says
You have a cute dog. We have three fur babies and they are spoiled too.
It sounds like you have a wonderful job. I’m sorry about the accounting class but most business owners run or follow their books closely. I had to start a spreadsheet to keep track of things this year.
I have a bachelor’s degree in information technology and an associate degree in Internet technology. I know how to code, it’s not my favorite thing to do but it comes in handy.
I’ve also been blogging full time for three years now.
desirae young says
That is so awesome you’re going to take an east coast road trip. We live her in NC and we have some beautiful beaches. Wave as you drive by LOL! Love your pup too. We lost our great dane this morning and have been devastated all day. Seeing that sweet face made me smile :]
Rebecca Swenor says
It is totally awesome that you shared some things about yourself. I love when people who work together essentially get to know each other through sharing. It is the only way to go I believe. Nice to meet you Ricci. Thanks for sharing.
Mistee Dawn says
My hubby is addicted to frappes, too. I have the OCD with my house thing, too. Cannot sleep if it is not in the proper order. lol. Fall is also my favorite season!
Alyssa C says
Fall has always been my favorite season, I think it’s because the weather and all the delicious scents (apple pie). Plus, my birthday is in October and I love love love Halloween! ;)
How fun! Sophie is SO cute. I love posts like this, and learning more about the bloggers behind these great blogs! This was fun to read and get to know you more!
Shaney Vijendranath says
Your puppy is adorable! I just want to snuggle with her. Lovely post, we got some things in common. I love traveling too.
Aw, Sophie is just adorable! I loved learning more about you, especially that you’re a frappe addict like me! lol!
Good to know these things about you. You dog Sophie is such a cutie. And like you, I am kind of like an OCD too. :)
Awwww what a cute post!! I always love getting to know bloggers alittle but better! Your doggie is adorable:)
Chubskulit Rose says
Sophie looks so adorable!! It’s great when you know someone love to do their job!
lisa @bitesforbabies says
I love these ‘get-to-know-me’ posts! I need to do one myself! I also LOVE traveling…having said that most of my travels have been in Europe. I need to travel around Canada and the US more!
Bonnie @ wemake7 says
Nice to meet you Ricci. =) I too am OCD about my home. I actually cannot go to bed unless our vehicles are cleaned out, the yard is the way I want it and the house is completely cleaned. No joke lol.
Bree @ HalfPennyBlog says
It’s great to meet you, and I loved learning all these random little things about you. I love reading as well, but I’ve never gotten into the audiobooks.
Jessica Simms says
Me and you have a few things in common, but I will point out the delicious one which is McDonald’s Frappes! Oh goodness I love me some Caramel Frappes! They just make me feel all types of happiness inside lol.
Shannon gurnee says
This is such a great post! I’ve never tried McDonald’s Frappes before, but they look yummy.
Aisha Kristine Chong says
I am so into essential oils too and I loove buying them haha!
