Hi, I'm Becky

HI! My name is Becky. Welcome to Choose Happy. For those of you that are new here, I thought I would give a little introduction and tell you a bit about myself.

I am a....
*wife: I have been with my husband for 16 years and married for 9 1/2. We are high school sweethearts. He keeps me grounded.

*mom: I am blessed to have 2 beautiful children. My son is 6 1/2 and my daughter will be 4 in a few weeks. They keep me on my toes & I can't imagine my life without them!

*friend: I am very lucky to have many, many girlfriends. I can't imagine life without them! 

*marketer: I went to college for Marketing Communications. I am a Marketing & Sales coordinator for a food manufacturer by day.

*traveler: I love to travel. It is one of my FAVORITE things to do. We are currently finishing our plans for our Florida trip with the kids in March and deciding on dates for our Colorado road trip this summer to see my little brother. 

*crafter: Another one of my favorite pastimes is crafting, DIY projects, getting my hands dirty and seeing what I can make with my own two hands {and sometimes my hubby's too}

*planner: Sometimes this is a strength, sometimes a weakness. I love to plan my week, plan events and future vacations!

*outdoors woman: I love exploring the great outdoors. In the winter, I enjoy snowshoeing, sliding, ice fishing (sometimes), and playing in the snow...when it is above 20 degrees! In the summer, I enjoy hiking, biking, swimming, camping, just about anything outside!

*reader: I enjoy reading, I just don't spend enough time doing it. I currently have a BIG pile of books that I want to start reading on my nightstand. It's one of my goals for this year!

*sister: I have one little brother. He is 7 1/2 years younger than I am. I was always a mother hen & still am. Sorry bro. 

*blogger: I have been blogging for about 15 months. Wow, 15 has went by so quickly. I have loved every minute and hope to continue to love it!  I had been wanting to start a blog FOREVER, just kept waiting for that perfect moment, perfect design, perfect words. After a little push from a few friends and inspiration from my Aunt Nan, I started and have loved it ever since!

Other random facts about me: 

*My nickname my whole life has been: Beck
*My favorite outfit is jeans & a white tshirt, but I do love wearing fun outfits, as you can see in all my What I Wore posts. 
*I rarely drink pop, but when I do... I drink Sunkist orange, 7up or A&W rootbeer
*My favorite color of flowers is pink
*My favorite foods are cheese & crackers and chips & salsa
*My favorite movie is Mary Poppins
*My favorite thing to watch on TV is old movies like Breakfast Club, Clue, Dirty Dancing & Troop Beverly Hills
*I am addicted to Instagram. It is my FAVORITE form of social media. 
*I can't wear fake eyelashes, I am allergic to the glue. I was practically in tears about this, as I love how they look on me. Except my eyes looked like huge puffy balls for 3 months. 
*One of my biggest goals in this lifetime is to encourage others to Choose Happy and live each and every single day to the fullest!

I would love to hear a random fact about you!
