Things You Don't Know

1. I absolutely adore clogging. I started classes when I was in elementary school and I just loved it. I've competed several times, won talent shows, and performed at Dollywood and Gatlinburg.

2. I am terribly shy, but for some reason I love selling boats and talking to people about boats. Don't get shy at all around that! If you come up and talk to me randomly and it isn't about boats, I'm quieter. Believe it or not. If you know me, I'm anything but quite.

3. My husband and I are complete opposites. I am such a nerd at heart and he's my former bad boy. I swear we'd make an amazing story. I was the goody-goody and he was my parent's example of what never to bring home. Seriously...we were neighbors as kids. If he'd have looked at me as anything other than the tomboy, awkward neighbor I was, I'd have fallen hopelessly in love with him on the spot.

4. I want to be a writer someday. I'd love nothing more than to see something published.

5. You can find me stuck in a book on the evenings I'm not pinning stuff or setting up blog posts. I honestly read 3-4 books a week. I can't help myself. My iPad is so full of amazing books and I love to reread them. I get so wrapped up in reading that it's 1:00 am before I know it...

6. I never imagined this blog would grow past ten readers. I gush about all the sweet things you guys say to me to Ryan. He's still in awe of it all too. I don't really share my feelings about my blog with others. It's another shy-off-topic boundary thing for me.

7. It's so difficult for me to talk about my weight loss or this blog with people in real life. I would absolutely love to, but I feel so shy about it. I feel like people may misinterpret it for me being stuck up or snobby. I'm actually neither.

8. I got my first negative comment about my blogging last week and I'm still processing it a bit. It's one reason I'm so quite this week. It's tough to hear that this thing I've babied for years is criticized. I still cannot believe someone wants to read any of this, but to hear someone else say that exact same thing is just plain tough.

9. I wear my heart on my sleeve. Absolutely....and I'm okay with that now.

10. I was never patient until Caleb. I am demanding, bratty at times, and lose my cool. But there's something about Caleb that just evens it all out.

  1. I would have never guessed you to be the shy type. :)
    And BOO to the person that said something negative about you. I will NEVER EVER EVER understand why someone would take the time to bash another person. Especially a blog. No is forcing people to read blogs!!! Why would somebody take the time to read something they don't like? It's mind boggling. Anywho, you are a great blogger and I enjoy reading your posts each week.

      Thanks for being so sweet! It was tough to hear the criticism, but I'm over it now!

    1. It's hard to want to read after you've had to for so long. I didn't read much while I was in college at all.

  5. Some friends and I clog at the East Ridge Community Center on Tuesday nights! It's so much fun - we're definitely not good but we enjoy it.

  6. #7!!! I also do not speak of my blog or weightloss to anyone outside of the blogging community...its just weird isn't it?? When I have told the few people I have told about my blog and given them the url, I always feel so awkward!!!

  7. Yep...feel so awkward talking about blogging in real life! Please don't listen to that negative comment - you are amazing and your story is inspiring and motivating.

  8. Wendy, you are a writer - already - and you publish through your blog and emails. I'm 63 and love reading your blog. Keep it up and let us know when your first "book" comes out! God bless. Nikii

    1. Thank you, sweetie! I have been playing around with the idea for quite a while. Who knows what I'd put in there!

  9. I just discovered you (and your blog) a couple of days ago. You have already inspired me beyond measure and I look forward to hearing more from you. Keep it up.

    I remember my mother telling me when I was young that people who are mean and critical are really insecure and jealous. I think there just might be something to that. Don't waste your energy on the negative comment, that poor person who left it could probably use a really big hug!

    1. Thank you so much, Summer. I think you're exactly right! I knew it would happen one day, but I just wasn't prepared for it. This is kinda my baby and it's hard to hear someone knock it. Oh well...such is life!
