While I'm testing out my Italian cooking skills today in Rome, I invited Mary from Eat, Drink & Be Mary to guest post. Mary is super sweet, and we virtually met through the HerCampus Blogger Network. Why do I love Mary? 1) She's originally from the south and 2) she understands the long-distance relationship struggles. Today, the spotlight is on her, so after you read this post, go check out her blog and see what she's all about!
Seven things you may or may not want to know about me:
+ I love to bake. Not to be confused with cooking. I don't cook. It's just not my thing. That is, unless you consider Kraft Mac 'n Cheese cooking. And in that case you'd probably consider me a chef. It's my specialty. Some of my favorite things I've baked recently are these Gorilla Bread & No-Bake Butterscotch Haystacks.
+ I am scared of big dogs. This may or may not be related to a big dog charging at me at the young age of two, for stealing all the attention. Can't Stop, Won't Stop. ;)
+ I'm in a long distance relationship with the cutest ginger you've ever seen. After dating in college, we've moved back home to separate states. Slowly but surely we're learning to love while being over 200 miles away.
+ I can't ride a bike. I once learned. Forgot. Wrecked. Re-learned. Forgot again. And have yet to muster up the courage to what seems like just another wreck. This is kinda embarrassing. I'm the exception to the phrase, "it's like riding a bike." Remind me again why I've decided to include this fact and tell the entire blog world that I can't do what most four year olds have mastered.
+ My favorite post I've ever written was -- My Ghosts of Boyfriends Past. I love hearing about people's dating horror stories (and their LOVE stories). Do tell!
+ I am a lover of all things coffee, Instagram, and anything with an elastic waist band. This past Christmas I gained not one, two, but nine more pairs of leggings and tights this Christmas.
With all that said and done it seems that I am a college graduate who has no clue what she's doing with her life, doesn't know the difference between sugar and salt, hates dogs and doesn't even know how to ride a bike. While this is not how I'd describe myself to someone, it doesn't hit too far from home. So I've either scared you away or hopefully this has intrigued you to follow along this crazy ride I call life. Who knows maybe I'll finally learn how to ride a bike again.
What is one thing I may (or may not) want to know about you? Anybody else out there that doesn't know how to ride a bike? What is your favorite post you've ever written--leave the link in the comments & I'll check it out. Stop by my blog or email me (mbolster1007 @ gmail) & say hey I love making new friends!
