10 Things: A New Blog Series

In the spirit of getting back into the swing of the blogosphere, I have decided to start a new series called "10 Things." Every so often I will be posting ten things. Ten things I'm grateful for, ten things I'm doing, ten things of something.

It should be a fun little series, and if you're a blogger, you are welcome to join in! I will be posting on Wednesdays.

This week, I will be sharing 10 things you may not know about me.

10 Things You May Not Know About Caitlin: 

1. I learned how to play clarinet, and quickly picked up multiple different instruments including the french horn and saxophone. What I'd really like to learn? The guitar.

2. I love to knit, but when I learned that crocheting was so much faster, it's all I want to do now! I'm currently making Juliet a little ruffly skirt for her birthday.

3. I switched my major three times in undergrad. I started in fashion design, then biology, and finished my degree in journalism. There's just so many great options out there, if I could learn it all I would.

4. I was a varsity cheerleader in high school and did all star cheerleading. Don't ask me to do any of that crazy tumbling now, but I have videos to prove it ;)

5. I'm a dreamer, but I tend to lack follow through. It's something I am constantly trying to improve.

6. When I was a kid, I was a bookworm. Like walking home from the library with books stacked to my chin kinda bookworm. I still love to read, I just don't have the time as much as I used to.

7. I hate working out. I do it because I like that it makes me feel stronger and healthier and I know it's good for me, but there's never really ever been a time that I've thought, "I can't wait to do my workout!"

8. I've always wanted to start my own business. Being my own boss and creating with my hands? Yep, sounds wonderful to me!

9. I love giving gifts. I want to buy/make gifts for everyone I care about, and I love getting to see people's faces when they are opening a gift. It makes my heart happy :)

10. I'm messy. Not dirty, not disorganized, but messy. I have to work to remember to put little things away, but I'm slowly getting better! (just don't ask my hubby ;)

There you have it. 10 things you may not know about me. What's something I don't know about you? 


  1. This is a fun idea! Cool series. Between you and me, we could start a band :) And your majors in college! I love all the variety. Going from design to biology to journalism. What changes! It clearly means you're really smart! I swear there are very few people who have a creative brain AND a science brain. I agree - there are so many majors that you do kind of want to try them all out, right?

  2. We must be kindred spirits; I never realized we had so much in common! My parents used to call me Matilda as a kid because I would take a wagonload of books home from the library if I could! I've always wanted to be my own boss, too! Or work alongside someone. I'm a bit of a control freak so I think being in charge suits me ;) I also 100% agree with you on workouts. I hate exercise. I wish I didn't, but I just do! And I'm a major gift giver myself. I love to give gifts for any occasion, I always have! I've taken the love languages quiz and receiving gifts was at the very bottom of my chart, but I sure love to give them. This is such a fun blog series; can't wait to see next week's 10!
