Today is my one year blog anniversary. That was by the far the quickest year of my life! When I started this little blog, I had one baby. Now I have a toddler and a newborn. Life is so rapid. I love it! I thought today in honor of my anniversary, I'd do a little getting to know me post, since I have really ever introduced myself. (oops...:)) Enjoy!
I took this little form from Aly at Analyze This. Thanks!!
Name: Kate. Just plain Kate. Not Katherine, Kathleen, Katelyn...just Kate. It's also NOT Katie.
Ahem. Sensitive subject.
Height: 5'5. A nice, average height. Unless you want to be a Rockette...ha!
Relationship Status: Married to Dave for almost four years. Time flies!!
Occupation: I own my own dance studio. It's a blessing, stressful, creative, amazing.
College: Allegheny<3 When Trace is in Kindergarten, I plan to go back to school at a Pitt campus by my house for a degree in business.
Sorority: Kappa Kappa Gamma! I advise the chapter at Allegheny now and have advised the Penn State Kappas in the past. Next to opening the studio, marrying Dave and having the kiddos, rushing KKG was the best decision I've ever made!
Family: 2 parents, still married, a younger sister and 2 older half brothers. We don't talk about them, though.
Car: A green Cadillac SRX.
Lucky Number: 13
Music Preferences: HUGE showtunes fan. Ben Folds is my absolute FAVORITE. I love Christian music too, it helps me stay positive and focused. I like top 40, of course, but nothing really vulgar or about violence. I really like acoustic music, acapella, country...okay I like it all.
Favorite Quote: "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." -Eleanor Roosevelt and "Now I'm changing the world one sequin at a time." -Lady Gaga
