The Wild & Wonderful Pink Growl

I have a lot of new followers up in here and you guys might not know all the wonderful & weird things that make me the girl behind The Pink Growl. I haven’t done a “getting to know me” type of post in a while so I wanted to do a refresher. Thanks to all you newbies for following along! Here are a few facts that might help you get to know me better.

I started my blog last September. I had read some fabulous blogs for years and I just wanted to have my own little piece of the internet too. I’m not a fashion blogger, a mommy blogger or any type of blogger in particular. No OOTD posts or kids running around these parts. I just write about my life. I definitely try to keep it real and talk about even the ugly and not so happy things in my life because that’s real life. Some of my favorite topics include: Luke Bryan, Tilly (my dog), planning for my upcoming wedding & weekends on the lake.
I’m Southern to my core, accent and all. Born & raised in East Tennessee so naturally I’m a Tennessee Alum. Go Vols!

My birthday is September 18th (2 days ago) and I cannot deny that I’m a virgo.

I’m gettin’ hitched to my amazing boyfriend of 8 years on 4/27/13. You can read our Love Story here - {Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Proposal}. It’s not all sunshine & rainbows all day every day but he’s definitely the person I want to wake up to every morning. (Technically not every morning – he’s a cop so his schedule rotates every 10 days so I spend some nights solo). He laughs at my jokes, spoils me rotten and supports me through everything. I think I will keep him forever and ever!

I work in the natural gas industry. I do marketing & business development for a public utility company.

I laugh at myself…a lot! {For example: My beautiful pup’s name is Tilly. Last week I called her TITTY accidentally and laughed about it for hours days. Don’t believe me? Ask my friend Lauran!}
I am obsessed with leopard print, gold, sequins, Coach, bargains, Pomeranians, the Real Housewives of everywhere, The Voice, college football, motocross racing and Chick-Fil-A.

I love blogging because I have met some truly amazing ladies! It’s strange to say I have good friends that I’ve never met in real life, but it’s very true. The support & camaraderie that blogging has provided me is like nothing I’ve ever experienced before. They help me through anything, no matter how far away we are. I love doing linkups because it introduces me to new bloggers!

I love to read. I don’t spend a lot of money on clothes or makeup. Walgreens is one of my favorite places to spend my lunch hour. I’m a Miller Lite kinda girl. I battle my weight and breakouts constantly. My hair is ever changing. I’m a band wagon jumper. I tell it like it is. But none of that stuff matters to you if you really know and love me.

I'm not any kind of specific blogger either! People ask me all the time what kind of blogger I am and I go "life blogger" but they never understand.
Can't wait to read more about your life!
