Hey Ashley Shaw...you've got a blog now!
Guys. Blogging! Am I right? Like I feel I missed my blogging chance back years ago and starting one now seems so late to the game but I couldn't think of a better way for me to make connections and to also let you get to know me so here we go. I'm going to need help though deciding what to put here because you will all get so sick of me just sharing sessions after sessions right? Maybe not? I'm also trying to make a conscious effort to NOT use so many exclamation points but I have to tell you that in my head every sentence ends with one. Forgive me! (<-- oops one made it in anyway)
So here's my gang! I have been married for 11 years now and have a 10,8,5 and 3 year old. It was a crazy couple of years there but I feel like we've mostly found our groove. Like 5% of the time.
Let's get right into it. Ten quick facts to get to know me a little better. I would just LOVE to have you comment with your ten quick facts in the comments or share them on instagram and tag me at @heyashleyshaw.
I am NOT a hugger but I absolutely am obsessed with snuggling my children.
I am obsessed with homemade pico de gallo (I'll make sure to share my recipe here soon) but I pretty much despise ketchup. Both made with tomatoes? Yup. One delicious and one disgusting? Double Yup.
I am one hundred percent a shopaholic. Pretty sure my thumb has pressed the "buy now with one click button" on Amazon thousands of times. If someone has a cure for an addictive shopping behavior send them on over!
I am so bad at selfies. Like even with filters. My eyes can NOT look right at the camera. You'd thing being a photographer for a decade, I'd be good right? Big ol' nope on that one. So also...selfie tips. Please for the benefit of anyone that follows me on social media...send help! (picture for proof below)
I was 100% sure I was going to be an OBGYN from the time I was ten til my junior year of high school. Then I was accepted at the University of California Irvine as a Journalism major...wait, what? Well my senior year I realized I needed to leave California and long story short ended up in Idaho for college as a marketing major with an advertising minor and it's the best decision I made!
My husband and I are constantly laughing and joking with each other and I can't imagine it any other way. I love to laugh and have fun and I feel like every relationship can use more laughter.
I have binge watched gossip girl maybe a dozen times by now...where are my other Chuck and Blaire fans? XOXO
I am an hobby addict. I love to learn everything! If I didn't ever have to sleep and had unlimited funds, I can't think of anything I wouldn't love to learn.
I almost always say something completely inappropriate in group settings and offend at least one person. Then I stay awake at night after a group outing and think about all of the embarrassing things I said.
Just like I can't pick just one hobby...I simply cannot pick a favorite type of music, favorite food, favorite movie, etc. I love such a variety of them all...from country to rap to broadway. From romantic comedies to dramas to fantasy movies. From sushi to Italian to a classic burger. No way could I commit to one.
wow...is this like the biggest proof of how bad I am at selfies or what? Like where are your eyes looking Ashley?
Love you all!
