About Me - xoxo Rebecca

About Me

Hi, I'm Rebecca. I guess you could call this my little piece of the web right here. My blog is called "xoxo rebecca" .... yup, that's me! But don't get me wrong, I'm not really that full of myself. The name just seemed to fall into place and the rest is history.

1. I am a digital cartographer/graphic artist/illustrator turned stay at home/homeschooling mom.

2. I have three children. Natalya, Reggie Jr, and Larissa

3. We named our first daughter after a video game. Yes, we are those people LOL curious as to what game? Check out the post here.

4. I was born on March 21st. 3-2-1 {I think that has always been kind of cool}.

5. I'm 5'7" making me the shortest person in my family. My mom nicknamed me "Christmas Elf" because I'm so short compared to everyone else.

6. My youngest was born at 4:02am in room 402.

7. When I was pregnant with my middle child, I needed to have my appendix removed during the last few weeks of pregnancy. Right after my baby was born, he needed to have his appendix removed as well.

8. I have never tried coffee in my life. Not even anything coffee flavored.

9. I am a very superstitious person when it comes to numbers. I have this weird thing when it comes to even and odd numbers together. I know, I'm totally weird but you can read about what I mean here.

10. I grew up in Germany. No, I am not German. I get asked that a lot. But my mom and dad were both in the Army and we were stationed in Germany through almost my entire childhood.

11. When I was 10 years old, I spent one summer collecting ladybugs and released them in my bedroom all at once. I had an infestation and thought it was so super cool. My mom, however, did not.

12. My brother and I were named after the Tom Sawyer books by Mark Twain.

13. I cannot put my hands in pants pockets. It freaks me out for some reason. I even tend to buy jeans with no pockets because I get freaked out if my hand goes near them.

14. I also can't have my food touching. So that usually means I need a separate plate for every food item I am eating for that meal.

15. I have an unhealthy obsession with four things :: Coach bags, Marie Antoinette, The Tudors, and nail polish.

16. I was in a sorority in college. I'm a Sigma Sigma Sigma.

17. My favorite color is pink. And anything glittery!

18. I met my husband at a college fraternity party during a hurricane. Here's a little sneak peek at our wedding.

19. I used to have such bad social anxiety while in high school., I couldn't even walk down the hallway at school by myself without having a panic attack. Let alone, go out to the mall or any other public place alone. I finally grew out of it when I left for college.

20. I'm addicted to slipper socks and mineral water.

21. My favorite animal is a penguin. I've been in love with penguins since I was a baby.

22. My first celebrity crush was Kevin Costner.

23. My husband and I want to start our own bakery one day.

24. I love silence. When I have any "me" time, I refuse to have the tv on, no music, no noise at all. Just sit in complete silence. Even driving in the car, I love having it absolutely quiet!

25. I sleep with my face completely covered up. I have to have my face fully under the covers even when it's 100 degrees out.
