Blog Star... More About Me

Mrs. Monologues

Welcome!  Today, I just happened to stumble upon Mrs. Monologue’s Blog Star link-up, so I thought I’d give it a try.  I’m relatively new to the blogging world, so I’m hoping to meet some new people through this link-up, along with finding some new blogs to read.  So here’s a little introduction to my little corner of the blog world.

I’m Ellen, although some people call me Ellie.  I married the love of my life, Justin, about two months ago.  We have a cute little fur-baby, Maggie Mae, and hope to be parents sometime in the future.  Last week, I turned 27 28.  (I’m still in denial about that one.  It seems so much older than 27!)  We just moved this past weekend and are still working on organizing our lives again, but I’m sure we’ll get there soon enough.

I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri.  Even though I ventured out for a few years (2002 – 2010), I’ve made my way back to St. Louis and love living here.  It’s going to take a whole heck of a lot to get me to leave my beloved home.  During the day, I work as a business analyst (aka. number cruncher).  It’s not the most exciting job in the world, but it pays the bills.

I’m a zumba enthusiast. Over the past few years, I’ve lost over 50 pounds and have been (mostly) maintaining for the past year or so. Exercise and I have a love hate relationship. Zumba is the one thing that will always get me to the gym. I’ve been trying to get into running, but my mind is fighting me on that. I will do it eventually.

I’m a TV junkie. What can I say? I love sitting down on the couch with some junk food and catching up on all my crazy TV. Right now, I’m really sucked into the drama of reality TV – The Bachelorette, Hell’s Kitchen, Masterchef, and So You Think You Can Dance. It makes for great summer TV.

I’m from a huge family and it drives me nuts I absolutely love it. I have seven siblings (two older, five younger)… all from the same mom and dad… and yes, we are catholic. I have over 20 aunts and uncles and over 30 cousins who I see on a fairly regular basis. Family get-togethers are something I look forward to. I can’t imagine life without my crazy family.

Like I said, I’m new to the blogging world, so I’m still trying to get my footing on what exactly this blog is about. I did start a new “series” on my birthday last week that is going to revolve around my bucket list for this year of my life. This blog will also incorporate crafts (I knit and crochet), fitness and health, family, friends, and much, much more. It’s my life and this is my blog… I hope you stick around and enjoy the ride!

Hi, stopping by from blog star. Omg, I'm a TV junkie too. Glad to hear I'm not alone! And I hear you about denying my age. I refuse to believe I'm 30. Refuse.

Meanwhile I'm now distracted by your fishes. :)

So happy that you decided to link-up! Congrats on your recent wedding and move. You have been a busy lady!!


Welcome to the bloggy world! My hubs and I went to St. Louis about a year ago and I fell in love with the area! We went St. Charles and it's my absolute most favorite place I've been. We talk about going back every time a hurricane threatens to make us evacuate New Orleans!

Blog Star drop by!

Your kitty is so pretty! :) I'm an every animal person and the hubs is a dog person so we have our two puppies. Almost got to have a cat - then we moved into this stupid condo with this dumb rules about only having two pets...under 50 pounds total. *grumble*

Anywho, Would love to have you stop on over to my little corner of the internet if you'd like! :) Looking forward to what you post next.
