Happy Thursday!! I feel like there are a lot of new faces around here lately and so today I decided to share a little bit about myself. If you have been reading here for a while then some of this may be old news to you but if you are new then welcome!! And today you will get to learn a little bit about me!!
So here we go with…the girl behind the blog!
ONE. My first name is Ricci and my middle name is Alexis, hence my blog name and URL, Ricci Alexis.
TWO. My Mom just knew I was going to be a boy and my Dad swore I was going to be a girl. My Mom was so sure she was right that she said my Dad could name me if I was a girl and so my Dad was actually the one who picked out Ricci Alexis. Go Dad!!
THREE. I am single. No boyfriend, ex-husband, or kids…just me!
FOUR. I have one dog, Sophie. I love her like she was my child. It’s a little bit ridiculous.
FIVE. My day job is a respiratory therapist and I love it.
SIX. I have been blogging for six years and started when I was off work for six weeks following a breast reduction. Both are some of the best decisions I have ever made.
SEVEN. Fall is my favorite time of the year and I am obsessed with any and everything pumpkin.
EIGHT. Pink is my favorite color.
NINE. I love to travel and wish I could do it for a living. With Sophie of course.
TEN. I am obsessed with the Royal Family. London is on my bucket list of places to travel to and I would honestly just die if I could see one of them in person.
ELEVEN. I love beauty products but am a true skincare junkie.
TWELVE. I own my own home and have had the best time decorating it and making it mine.
THIRTEEN. I love taking selfies.
FOURTEEN. I was in the FFA in high school and those are still some of my favorite memories. I was on the Parliamentary Procedure and Floriculture teams and showed sheep. I also held chapter and district offices.
FIFTEEN. I am the world’s worst at procrastination. I guess I work well under pressure??
SIXTEEN. I am in my early 30’s but don’t feel a day over 27.
SEVENTEEN. I come from a very large, blended family but I currently live about 2.5 hours away from any of them. I like having my space.
EIGHTEEN. I met some of my very best friends through blogging and we talk everyday and travel together all the time.
NINETEEN. I have never been to Disney World and hope to remedy that soon.
TWENTY. My favorite food in the whole wide world is chicken. I could seriously eat it everyday and not complain, in fact I often do.
So there are twenty random facts about me. If you are a long time reader I hope you learned something new! And if you are a new reader then I hope you get a sense of who I am!
