Twenty Things About Me

Charity over at The Word of a Nerd had a post I read today about Twenty things about yourself. I decided it would be fun to share some more about me :) Thanks for the idea Charity! Feel free to copy and share about yourself as well! 

20 Things About Me! 

What's your favorite thing about where you live? I love how close we are to everything. I can be sitting on the beach in ten minutes or walking about the big cities in less than an hour. We have the woods and nature, but we also have the casinos and the outlet stores. Its a wonderful area where you pretty much know everyone :) 

What are 3 things you are grateful for? I am grateful for so much- but the 3 most important to me - my husband who always has my back, my family who can be annoyingly close- but I wouldn't change it for the world, and my wonderful friends who have literally given me shoulders to cry on in time of despair. 

What is the story behind your blog name? When I started taking different medications to battle IF I started to detest eggs- something I used to eat every morning. On top of that my "eggs" weren't doing what they were suppose to. One morning while complaining about my new food aversion I said "Gaah stupid broken eggs.." and that became the starting point of my blog. 

What is one think you'd like to learn? One thing thats so hard there is so much I want to learn still. I really would love to be a registered nurse. Its hard for me to go back to school for a multitude of reasons, but I really want to do more. 

What does your ideal day look like? Sleeping passed 6am, enjoying a nice slow up of coffee by my fireplace with my blanket over my legs and my dog in my lap. Pumpkin spice candles burnings and enjoying the morning sun through the windows. Then I would start my day and someone would come in to put my hair in order for me so I didn't have to. Rob and I would go on an adventure. Any adventure like traveling to the Reading Terminal Markets and enjoying a day together with no real plan. For dinner with would have my Mama's Gravy and pasta w/ home made meatballs and a nice glass of my favorite pinot grigio. Then we would retire to the bedroom and enjoy a movie. Those are my favorite days :) well those and a day at Disney World! 

When are you at your best? When I am in the midst of chaos. I am a 911 dispatcher and I actually thrive when its the craziest. I am able to remember minute details and maintain a calmness to keep things running smoothly. I love when the craziness ends and we can all sit back and say- wow this worked out well and we made a difference today. 

If you could meet any blogger in person, who would you choose? There are so many I would love to meet in person. Caroline from In Due Time has really helped me find some inner peace and faith, Rise from Who Shot Down My Stork has taken us all along in her ups and downs I really just want to give her a hug, and Emily from Eat Love Procreate has been a guiding light for me and always has wonderful advice. There are many more who I love to follow along and would love to meet as well. 

Which blogs are you loving right now? Goodness it seems like everyday I am adding a new blog to follow the 3 above and Charity's blog plus- 

But there really are a ton more that I love to follow along with- just search everyone out on my blog under Blogs I Adore. I really do adore you all :) 

Tell us something we don't know about you. I am a Disney fanatic and I took my husband down the rabbit hole with me :) 
Last Christmas :) 

Favorite piece of jewelry other than your wedding/engagement ring and why? I have an infinity bracelet from Tiffany's that Rob gave me as a gift this passed Valentines Day. I love it because it was a total surprise and Rob searched out jewelry that I had posted on Pinterest to chose this one. Which is amazing :) 

Who inspires you? Each and every one of you. You all have stories to tell with triumphs and failures but you all find time for humor and faith and love. You take time out to comment and help life one another up and I am so proud to be part of such an amazing community. You guys are my rock :) 

What is your favorite family tradition? "Sunday" dinners. I put Sunday's in quotes because in our line of work our Sunday's are not always Sunday's, but we take time out to make a big meal and sit down and eat together. We work on the meal together. It may not happen every single week, but we do it often and its something I desperately want to pass along. 

Who do you admire most as a blogger and why? I admire so many of you- but Risa at Who Shot Down My Stork has been through so much recently and has shared it all. She still manages to keep on moving forward and put a smile on my face. She is the face of determination and my heart goes out to her. 

Is this how you imagined your life would be? Nope. Not even close, but its the life I have and I am trying to enjoy every second of it. 

Show us your favorite picture and explain why you love it. This is the day I married the man I love, my best friend, in the most amazing wedding on the Jersey Shore with the most amazing weather and wonderful family and friends. 

How did your blog come about? I needed someplace to document this journey and somewhere to feel comfortable talking about things that many don't know about or understand... someplace to spew forth emotions and feelings that are not always okay to share with people that don't understand IF or can be confused as awful and thoughtless. 

What do you love about yourself? My ability to be there for my friends no matter what they need. 

If money were no question, I'd purchase a new home with a beautiful back yard and I would landscape it with a gorgeous pool with flowers and bird baths and trees- a sanctuary. 

What's your biggest struggle in life? Right now a battle to get pregnant. 

Name something you have learned that surprised you. Lots of things surprise me. I think that my parents met and were married within months of meeting one another and are still together today is still the most surprising. 

I hope you enjoyed this post. I would love to learn something about you. Answer some of the questions in the comments below or link me to your own post.

Thanks Charity for sharing :) 


  1. I loved this! Thanks for the shout out :) And you sound like the PERFECT EMT. My mom is a nurse and she's amazing in a crisis in a way I could never be. I try--I pulled two people from a burning car once, but afterwards I cried for hours and was terrified to drive. I still get nervous driving sometimes and it was years ago. You sound like you thrive in those situations and that's amazing.

    Also amazing is that wedding photo. You look so happy. I love it :)

    1. Its such a calling to be called towards crisis instead of away from it. Its my favorite wedding photo of us :) Never happier than that moment! .. well at least not yet

  2. Great list!
    Love the wedding picture of you guys... You live in a place like me - isn't it great? we are so lucky!

    1. I love being so close to everything. It makes the thought of moving its so important for me to move to some place with the same layout.

  3. Kasey, thanks for sharing this!! Your wedding pic is fab!

    1. It certainly has more ups than downs. Though in recent years we seem to be hurraince alley.

  6. This post is definitely at hit! Thank you so much for the shout out. Honestly we have so much in common it's crazy. I love how real you were especially on the question about life, I don't know many people whose lives went according to plan perfectly. Also the photo of you and your husband is just too cute. We are not too far from each other it would be totally fun to meet up with other bloggers. Especially TTC ones. I hope you are having a fab day.
