Tidbits About Me: Part One

I decided that I didn't want to create a blog where my readers didn't know anything about me (I'm really thoughtful, huh?!), so I'll periodically post a few fun facts for all to enjoy!

First is my kitty, Pennie Louise. I like animals to have middle names, which you probably noticed with Kassie James. And, yes, I realize that Kassie does have a masculine middle name, but she's comfortable with it. Anyway...I consider Pennie my first child and treat her as such. She is extremely loyal to me and only me. Friends and family can definitely attest to that. Some of Pen's talents include fetching and knowing how to royally tick me off. Now, I understand a lot of people don't like cats, so I'll move on.

Let me also share a story of my addiction. To chapstick. It began around fifth grade - there was a brand of chapstick called 'Natural Ice' (I assure you, it has no relation to the beer) which made my lips tingle with joy. Soon enough, I was making my way through a tube a week. I tried other brands of chapstick, but they didn't have the same affect. One time in seventh grade I was spending the night with a friend and, much to my horror, I forgot to pack my beloved Natural Ice, so I had to slum it with my pal's Blistex. Out of the blue, my mouth started swelling and it grew to about five times the normal size. Now quickly scroll back up to the photo of me and imagine that visual. Gross. The next morning my mom took me to the doctor and he confronted my addiction and prescribed diaper rash cream to calm the swelling. It was so mortifying carrying that around school. Fast forward, I quickly rid myself of the Natural Ice addiction after that incident, but I will always have a special place in my heart for chapstick. Currently I use Burt's Bees and will settle for nothing else. 

That felt like a really long story and I kind of cut it short at the end, but I'm in a Red Lobster daze and can't concentrate on anything other than how bad I want a belly rub. 

I'll be back with outfit posts either tomorrow or Monday - I can't make guarantees.

Hope you have a lovely weekend!


  1. I love cats. Very beautiful name for cat!!
    The story about the lipstick is terrifying. My friend have almost the same problem with a hair dye. She used it very often and because of this her face swelled out one day.


  2. I have pleeeently of hair coloring horror stories as well...

    Thanks for the comment! And you earned brownie points for liking cats!

  3. How come I never knew that story?!?!

  4. Well I didn't really publicize it. Not one of my finer moments!
