Fun Facts You May Not Know About Me

Writing a blog has been something I have absolutely loved doing the past few years. Besides expressing myself through writing, I have had the ability to connect with so many new followers. Thank you guys so much for hanging with me virtually!

Since I have so many new blog subscribers lately, I wanted to share a few fun facts about me that you may not know. I always love learning random things about others, and since many things about me are obvious, it’s nice to sometimes change it up! Here’s your random dose of Katetastic-ness for the day!

1. I have an obsession with tiny hats.
  I cannot tell you when this obsession began….but I can tell you it started when I was really young because I have loved tiny hats since I was a little girl. Now I find a reason to tie a festive hat in with anything I possibly can….brunches, parties, holidays….they are a great accessory! I get all of my tiny hats from Chiki Bird Hat Studio…..Corinne does amazing work!

My favorite hat!

2. My favorite book of all time is Catcher in the Rye.
  I absolutely love to read…..and I love all kinds of books ranging from leadership books to feel good stories to fictional tales. Catch in the Rye is a book I first read back in junior high, and it is a book I have read every year since. I tend to like anything with a little bit of rebellion, but there’s something about this book that is just different that I connect to. Regardless, if you have never read it, do it.

3. My alter-ego is Hurri-Kate.
    Yes, I have an alter-ego, and when she comes out, it isn’t the prettiest thing to see. She was nicknamed Hurri-Kate quite some time ago by a friend who was present when I got extremely fired up, and that nickname just stuck. This isn’t to be confused with the name I give whenever I’m out and about…..that name is Dallas (you’ve got to choose a name after a city or a state)!

4. I was homecoming queen in high school and college.
   I was a huge fan of the small town I went to high school in and later turned down larger colleges to go to one situated in another small town. I guess I’m just a small town girl….living in a lonely world (I had to go there….you know how I love my music).  I was proud to serve as Homecoming Queen at both schools…..even though I hadn’t discovered mascara or proper brow products back in high school (I was a bit of a tomboy back then).

5. I absolutely cannot burp.
   It is just something I CANNOT do. I know, it’s very strange.

6. I was an on air personality for Froggy,
  One of my favorite jobs of all time was getting to be on the air for Froggy, ironic since I hate frogs. My on air name was Pollywogg, and I absolutely loved getting to be on air, playing music, and going out into the community for live events. It also wasn’t a bad gig getting to meet and introduce celebrities like Joe Nichols, Bret Michaels, Toby Keith, and Travis Tritt to name a few. I often miss radio and have considered getting back into it, but then I realize I already have a pretty full life and probably shouldn’t add anything else to it.

7. My name was {almost} Greta.
   My mom really liked this name, but my dad was against it. I’m thankful my dad won on this one. Can you imagine if I was named Greta??????

8. I absolutely HATE getting a suntan.
  There was a brief time in college when I managed a tanning salon and tanned every day, but I quickly realized I didn’t want to look like leather down the road and abandoned that immediately. Now I’m that person who wears a big floppy hat at the beach, and I layer up on sunscreen just in case a little bit of sun gets in under the hat or the umbrella I hide under. I just don’t like getting tan.

9. I was born 21 days late. Sorry, Mom.
   And I’ve been a pain in the ass ever since. Right, Mom???

10. I absolutely love public speaking.
 One of my favorite things to do is speak publicly. I don’t care what the topic is…it could just be me delivering bad jokes…..give me a mic, and I will be in my happy place. I’m thankful that I have many opportunities now to speak to others, whether it be in a motivational format or to deliver training materials. I wasn’t always this way though….back in college I dreaded taking public speaking, but when I did, guess what? I fell in love with it.
