Fun Fact Friday

Another Friday is here, yay TGIF!!!! Okay so I have the day off, but for those of you who are working, yay! Weekend is upon us! I'm currently at my parents hanging out with family, and letting Baby Fox get to know his Baby Fox Cousins.Which brings us, lovely readers, another installment of Fun Fact Friday...not sure how many Fun Facts Friday I'll have, but I'll go with it till I don't have any more to say. Of course in list form:

  • I still carry a day planner, I know, so 90's right? But I love opening my little day planner and seeing what I have to do for the month. Yep I still use Franklin Covey (is there anything else really?). I've had this same purple day planner for 18 years! Yes that's right, I should be a spokes person for Franklin and how indestructible they are. As you can see I color code it, so at a glance I know exactly what I have to do...dorky I know, but it's worked for me for 14 years, I don't think I adopted the color code until college, you know you're in class bored out of your mind and need something to occupy your time, because class obviously isn't.

  •  I met my husband a bar called Barney's Beanery in West Hollywood. He sat in the booth right across from me and my friends. All my friends were talking to someone in his group, we weren't talking to anyone, I walked around my booth to his booth, sat down and introduced myself. That's right, I picked HIM up! We were both dating people at the time (that is a whole other post).

  • I repeated the second grade. I wasn't failing but school did NOT come easily to me. I don't think I would be where I am today if I didn't repeat second grade, seeing as that math was my hardest subject back then (I could not get the concept of greater than and less than...what?!? You want the alligator to do what?) Fast forward 10 years and my engineering major made me take math classes up to what is equivalent to a Calculus 4. After I repeated second grade, math came easily and I was always a grade ahead in math, thank you parents for that! 
  • Speaking of school, I have a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and a Masters of Science in Systems Engineering.
  • Mr. wants me to tell you, that he takes all of my outfit posts, he wants full credit.
Hope you enjoyed this weeks, Fun Fact Friday! Until next time! Have a great weekend!


  1. Haha, I love these facts! You know, it's such an accomplishment to go from repeating 2nd grade to being totally awesome at math and have 2 degrees in engineering. You should be so proud! :)

  2. I love my planner. Staying organized keeps me sane haha.

    1. I agree! My sister teases me to no end that I am so "old fashion"!
