I never thought I would be sitting at my “work desk” in our family room writing my first of seemingly many blog posts. But here I am. Hello World! This is my blog. Read me, read me, read me. Ok, enough of that.
Where to begin? I wrote this whole “About Me” section full of my Marketing credentials where I name-dropped all of these big companies that I had worked with and it came out super boring and pretentious. It even bored me, and I lived it.
That stuffiness is just not me, so I crumbled up that draft (so to speak) and just started writing from the heart. There are a few things about me worth knowing as you decide if you want to continue reading my blog or not and I like to think of them as FUN FACTS instead of credentials or a resume.
The Nerding Curve is my first public debut at blogging. Although, I have been writing down my thoughts, memories, emotions, etc. etc. since I could put crayons to paper. However, the main reason that this blog came to be right now is because I realized that my nerdy, gamer, geek, insert another adjective here, husband was turning me into a nerdy gamer geek. And then I realized, I was clearly ALWAYS a nerd, because let’s face it, nobody TURNS that quickly and maybe he just made my inner nerd comfortable enough to show itself. And the only thing nerdier than being a self-confessed nerd is sharing all aspects of that with the world and poof, this blog was born!
So, here goes: 5 Fun Facts About Laura!
1.) I’m a Newlywed! (YAY!) And married to a great guy. Truly my better half, the love of my life, and my best friend. Really, my life wouldn’t be the same without him.
2.) We have a 3 legged, 5 pound, white and tan Chihuahua. He is our fur baby and has a typical Chi personality (read: insane.) I will probably write about him from time to time or at least post pictures because he’s just so adorable!! For a counter perspective, my husband has nick-named him a “tiny terror.” Draw your own conclusions.
3.) I LOOOOVVVVEEEE to read. As a kid, you could frequently find my head buried in a book and to this day, I always have a stack of at least 3-4 books on my nightstand that I am reading concurrently. Since my husband shares my insane love of books, we just had to make one of the rooms in our home a dedicated library. Our library has nothing in it except shelves of books and comfy chairs. Doesn’t get much better than that…… 🙂
4.) My husband and I started an online business together 2 months before our wedding (read: also insane) and now have 2 eCommerce stores up and running. Con Couture just celebrated a 1st Business Birthday! Our plan is to keep adding to it so that I never have to dress myself and clock into a corporate cubicle every again.
We sell fun things. Take a little looksy:
5.) I am interested in trying to live a Vegetarian and (ultimately Vegan) lifestyle. If you keep reading, I will amuse you with tales of how this goes down in our house! 🙂
Well that’s it. Those are my 5 starter fun facts and it’s only going to get fun-ner (this being a word is debatable, but it should sooo be a word already.) You have to stick around to learn the rest.
With this blog, I hope to share my insight on a wide range of topics: being a newlywed/wife, obviously everything nerd and nerd related, recipes, a vegetarian (aspiring vegan) lifestyle, TV, life, our business Con Couture, and most importantly: The Nerding Curve!
So welcome, stay awhile and nerd out with me.
