Welcome to my so-called wonderful (and sometimes crazy) life!
My name is Wendi and I am a twenty-something gal with a zest for life. My idea of a perfect Friday night often includes curled up on my couch with my dog, some popcorn and the latest Emily Giffin novel. I can literally spend hours upon hours in a bookstore (the more unique and quirky, the better!), and on many occasion, have. One of my favorite things to do in all the world is to visit libraries all over the country and would love to get married either at Miller Park (how cool would that be?!) or at the Chicago Public Library (if you have ever been, you will understand why. It is absolutely gorgeous!) It’s safe to say that I LOVE LOVE LOVE books and everything having to do with them. I’m still waiting for the day when I find a job that pays me to read books all day…Random House Book Review team, I’m available fyi 😉
This blog is a chronicle if you will, a collection of all of my random thoughts and Wendi-isms (which there are a ton) on this wonderful, wacky, crazy, funny, questionable, lovely, rollercoaster-of-a-thing we call life. It is also a sounding board of inspiration and hope. I want you to feel free to ask me questions and advice, to vent or just stop by and say hi!
So hop on board, put your hands in the air, and let’s tackle this ride together!
Warning: Reading this blog may have serious side effects including, but not limited to: sudden outbursts of laughing, contagious smiles, funny stories to share around the office water cooler the next day, and a sudden weakness for ice cream cones.
Just some things to know about me before you go on:
I am THE biggest Milwaukee Brewers fan EVER! Do not even bother talking about, mentioning, bringing up, or displaying any affiliation with the Cubs and/or Yankees…my ear muffs will be on.
I am a bookworm to the nth degree. Nook if I must, there is just something about pouring through a great-page turner (or seven) that has got me hooked (You could say I’m hooked on Nook–okay, okay…reader I am, poet I am not).
I have got the BEST family and friends in the world, hands (and feet) down.
I am an ice cream-aholic. Seriously. I think I may need to check myself in to the Ben & Jerry’s clinic.
I could live in a t-shirt, jeans, and sneakers. If you are ever in need for fashion advice (or should I say good fashion advice), I would advise you to go elsewhere for your own safety.
My likes: Dogs. Running. Pee-your-pants-funny movies (Adam Sandler and Mike Myers, I am talking to you). My mom’s homemade chicken noodle soup. Road trips. Laughing. Making others laugh. Thunderstorms. Singing in the rain or on a train, in my car or at a bar. Scratch N Sniff Stickers. Anything and everything Seinfeld. Peanut M&M’s. Cookies. Peanut M&M cookies. Hugs. S’mores. Learning. Trying. Doing. Succeeding.
My dislikes: Fish (because really, who would want to eat anything that smells like, well, fish?) Spiders. Tornadoes (deathly, I mean DEATHLY afraid of them). Mean and rude people, in general. Meatloaf (sorry mom, but the only thing that should be in loaf form is bread). Meatloaf the musician (sorry again, mom). The word puss. Slow walkers. Slow talkers. Regret.
I guess that’s nut in a me shell.
I mean me in a nut shell 🙂
