7 Facts About Me

Last Thursday I was tagged by Amy over at Surly Kitchen to participate in a fun activity called "7 Facts." By being tagged, I get to share 7 facts about myself and then tag 7 people to do the same!

The Rules:
-Tag the person who tagged you
-Share 7 facts about yourself
-Tag 7 bloggers to participate in this activity

So here are 7 facts about me:

1. I am a huge Star Wars nerd! I've watched the movies so many times and I use to play with the Star Wars action figures. I even had the Death Star and Millenium Falcon! (TOTAL NERD)

2. My first love was Leonardo DiCaprio in 4th grade when Titanic had just come out. My dad took me to see it in theaters and I sat in his lap while crying like a baby when Leo died at the end. My dad kept saying to me, "It's okay Haley, his Mercedes Benz is parked in the back lot." It didn't help me much because all I was focused on was that my boyfriend was drifting to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean!

3. I was a cheerleader from 7th grade until my senior year of high school. My senior year I was dance captain and choreographed the motions to the school fight song that they still do today.

4. The only place I shop for clothes and accessories is Maurices. They always seem to have the clothes that fit my personality the best and they are so cute! I have a charge card there that causes me a little bit of trouble!

5. I was an RA in the dorms for 2 years at the University of Montana. It was great because it was free room and board, plus my staff members became my greatest friends. It was rough because I didn't have a life and had a 8:00 curfew 4 out of 7 days a week. It was such an amazing experience...I highly recommend it to any college student.

6. Dusty and I met at a fraternity party (romantic, I know) my sophomore year of college. He came up to me and asked me if I wanted to "merengue dance" with him. He twirled me and spun me all night on the dance floor. I was so smitten with him and weak in the knees from his smile! We swapped phone numbers that night after dancing and then we had a date at our local smoothie place a couple days later. The rest is history....

7. Last spring I had a mid-life crisis and thought about going to culinary school instead of nursing school. When you take 4 years of science class, you get really frustrated from the lack of creativity. So instead of culinary school I took my creative frustration and started my blog. I have to say it has been 100 times more fun teaching myself to cook and I still get to be a nurse! It's a win-win situation!

Now that I have told you 7 facts about me, I get to pick 7 bloggers to tell 7 facts about themselves:
The Country Cook
Eccentric Kitchen
The Menu Mama
Wanna Be A Country Cleaver
Cook, Bake and Decorate
365 Random Days of the Year
The Church Cook


  1. What a fun blogging game! We have a lot in common! I was in love w Leo DiCaprio back in the Titanic days : ) I also LOVE Star Wars and shop at Maurices often!!

  2. Haley - you are just the cutest gal ever! :)
    I was 21 when Titanic came out (this is making me sound kinda Anyway, for months afterwards, I debated on dying my hair red to look like Kate Winslet..LOL.
    Sounds like you had your own love story happen later with Dusty (very sweet!)

  3. I LOVE your 7 facts. I totally agree that science classes just suck the life out of you! I also loved Leo and I still do today...I also still cry at the end of Titanic! Haha congrats on the award, you deserve it!

  4. i love this 7 facts thing, it's a nice break from food. can't agree more with the science thing. until my blog my only writing consisted of lab reports and experient/test SOPs. not fun.

  5. Love your facts, thanks for tagging me. Oh and the Creme de Menthe cake looks so fun and yummy!!!

  6. I was in Kappa Kappa Gamma. But it was only for a semester. It wasn't a good environment for being a serious student in the biology department and I needed to get out and be an RA. The only good thing that came from it was meeting Dusty!

  7. Haley, love your 7 facts! I had a friend that worked at maurices in high school and she always had on the cutest outfits! Love your blog and thanks for tagging me! Oh and seriously I don't know if I mentioned before but your creme de menthe cake looks amazing!!!
