Web Ready Alissa 4 editI’m new to a lot of things.  Marriage, for instance. I’m a newlywed, but I’m not new to my husband. I don’t think I can claim to be a newlywed anymore. Blogging, French cheese plates, obscure music, etc. I like to sing, but I can’t hit high notes or low notes, just maybe a few notes in between. I’ve lived in the Raleigh/Durham area for about 2 years 4-ish and only know how to go to about 5 different places = navigationally challenged. I love dancing, moving my arms and legs sporadically but I hate sweating so that usually causes a conflict.  Maybe I just like dancing in 2-3 minute intervals.  Unemployed!  My dog, Destro, and my computer are my “coworkers.” The stupid boss is that annoying pile of laundry that never seems to go away.  Oh, yes.  I’ll be in on Sunday, Boss.   And, talk about office gossip.  The dishwasher was telling me just the other day that Destro is pee-in-the-backyard-phobic.  What rumors, right?  Wrong.  Remember: most rumors have some truth to them. 

And, no.  I’m not pregnant. Well, technically I’m not.  But I am a mom now. 

If I start posting pictures of me with my shirt lifted up to reveal a protruding belly, I’m probably telling you that I just ate something really awesome.  Food is great.  This, by the way, still holds true.

Points of Disinterest:

1. I am a real redhead.  This ain’t no bottle job.

2. I am originally from South Carolina.  There is a big difference.  Please don’t lump North and South Carolina into one “Carolina.”  We don’t like it. And by “We” I mean North and South Carolinians.

3. I attended and graduated from the University of South Carolina.  Go Cocks!  Yes, gamecocks.  Don’t misunderstand me.

4. I have cankles.  It’s a struggle.

5. I love soup! And stews even in the summer.

6. I smell good most of the time.

7. My style is whatever the mannequins are wearing at Kohl’s and Stein Mart.

8. I do not like oysters – a point of contention in my household as The Hubbs is from the coastal low country of South Carolina.

9. I have one brother who is two years older than I.  He’s pretty great. I won’t tell you much more because he didn’t sign up for a blog.

10. I do not try to sound smarter than I am.  In fact, I dumb myself down.  I think it makes my boobs look bigger.
