1. The hotter the better!

2. I am 23, have been married for 4 years and have a nearly 3 year old. 
People think I'm crazy & too young to have a family but, I wouldn't change one. single. thing.

3. There is nothing more therapeutic to me than painting the walls in our home. 
I love the change and seeing the finished product.

4. I don't have a runners legs are really short but,
I love to go for a nice run and the occasional race.

5. I am super competitive. 
Which can be a curse because I take everything personally and obviously cant win at everything.
