Heather @ From Here to There - {Guest Post}

Today I have a fun guest post by my 'Savory' sponsor Heather over at From Here to There! Make sure you check out her cute blog AND join her on the 26th for her new favorite things link-up...BLISS!
Hey y'all!  I know when I read guests posts, I want them to be one of three things: (1) humorous -  I don't find myself to be really funny - so that's out of the question (2) informative - either a recipe or a tutorial - and I don't have either of those today or (3) an introduction - which is what you're about to get!  I enjoy reading a few facts about other bloggers when they guest post so I can determine if I would enjoy reading their blog and keeping up with their life.  Hopefully, you'll get a quick glimpse into who I am and what I'm about and fingers crossed, you'll decide we should be friends!  If you come to that conclusion, hop over to my blog, From Here to There, and say hey so I can come check out your blog too!

Here are 9 facts about me:

{1} I did the Disney College Program
By far, this is one of the most interesting things about me.  People usually squeal and freak out over it - so I figured it was a good place to start.  I lived at Disney for 7-8 months, lived with 7 other girls, and worked at the Boardwalk Resort as a Housekeeper.  For the most part, it was less than glamorous, but I'm a Disney fanatic now.  If you are too, chances are, we'd be great friends!

{2} I love Reese's
Not a lot of explanation here.  I will say that blogging and my love of Reese's has brought on excessive benefits.  Let's just say, I haven't bought my own Reese's in about 3 years now.  They are always included in swap gifts, friend gifts, and anything else that comes with blogging.  I'm usually stashed up.

{3} I attempt to be fit
I can't say that I'm always fit or that I enjoy working out.  I enjoy the benefits of working out, but sometimes I don't have all the motivation in the world.  My workout of choice is running; however, I do my best to dabble in other forms.  I've done 3 half-marathons (2 of which were at Disney - The Disney Wine & Dine, The Disney Princess) and I've done 1 triathlon.  This May I'll be doing a 50 mile Bike Ride.  I've also done a Beach 5K.  I'm not great at being adventurous, so I have to force myself or else I'd lead a pretty dull life.

{4} I'm raising money for Diabetes
I mentioned that 50 mile Bike Ride above.  I'm doing that race in honor of my childhood best friend.  She has lived with diabetes since we were kids and it has always been close to my heart.  I grew up knowing how to give her shots if needed, test her blood sugar if needed, and how to respond during an emergency.  This may not be your thing, but if it is - You can donate here.  My minimum to raise is $200, but my goal is $1000.  As you can see, I have a ways to go!  Any donation is appreciated!

{5}I'm hosting a new fun link-up
If you like link-ups, I'm fairly certain you'll like this one.  It's simple.  Once a month, share some of your favorite things!  They don't have to be products - although I wouldn't complain about learning of a new product I should be using!  They can be favorite people or favorite moments from the past month.  If it brought you "Bliss" then you have a reason to link-up!  The first link-up with be February 26th!

{6} I'm a vegetarian
This is recent.  I've watched the documentary Vegucated and read the book Main Street Vegan. They both were very informative.  If you've thought about going vegetarian or vegan, you should watch and read those!  I'm not a vegan - haven't made that plunge yet, but I became a vegetarian on January 1st of this year and so far so good!

{7} I live with my parents
Crazy, right?  I moved back home in August and began searching for a job.  I went unemployed for about 4 months, working odds and ends here and there.  I finally landed a job in January and it's been great so far!  I do plan on moving out in a few months, but right now... I'm accepting my place and moving forward with life.  It's not ideal, but it's not worst case scenario either - I'm extremely blessed to have parents that allow me to live at home, rent free!

{8} My goal is contentment
I have struggled with being content where God places me for a long time.  I finally accepted my placement and chose "contentment" as my word of the year!  If you struggle with finding contentment - then we can relate!

{9} I have a main squeeze
Lastly, I know most people enjoy seeing that "significant other".  Nick and I have been together for about 6 years now.  He's a Mechanical Engineering student and we are as different as night and day, but he's my main squeeze!  I don't understand him half of the time, but I love our differences and how they balance us out.

If you think we'd be friends, I would LOVE for you to stop by my blog and say hi, tell me a few facts about you, and strike up a new blogging friendship!
