18 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Me

This week on Instagram Stories, you may have noticed a lot of people sharing 5 interesting things about them. I shared mine, but it got me thinking. I have been blogging for almost 5 years now, and have kept my platforms pretty much fashion focused, rarely sharing anything personal. However, I want to share more with you guys, so here are 18 interesting/silly things about me. Looking forward to sharing more with you this year!

  1. I was born and raised* in Del Mar, California. Most of my family still lives in southern CA
    * I also lived in Lincoln, Nebraska & Fort Worth, Texas prior to going to college
  2. I'm left handed, but do everything else right handed (batting, throwing a ball, kicking a ball, etc)
  3. I sucked my thumb until I was 5-ish. My mom bribed me to stop with a $100 shopping spree - thus began the fashion addiction
  4. My first concert was the Beach Boys when I was 8 at a Kansas City Royals baseball game - I loved them growing up!
  5. In elementary school I was on a competition jump-rope team. Pretty sure I can still do a few tricks if handed a jump-rope.
  6. My mom is Canadian, which means I can have dual citizenship - one of my 2018 goals to make that happen!
  7. I could eat tacos everyday for the rest of my life...with avocado of course
  8. I've never had a cavity, but had to wear head-gear in 4th grade due to sucking my thumb
  9. I played select soccer in elementary/middle school & competitive cheerleading in high school
  10. My dog's name is Scout. He is a maltipoo and 6.5 years old. The SWEETEST dog you have ever met. 
  11. I went to college at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth - majored in Fashion Merchandising and minored in Radio-TV-Film. Go Frogs
  12. I have a strange fear of fish. I do not want to see them swimming near me/touching me, so I will not snorkel/scuba dive, but I will swim/surf in the ocean as long as I can't see them. I know its weird. 
  13. My first job out of college was designing cheerleading uniforms & also where I met my best friend!
  14. Traveling is one of my passions and I have logged over 250,000 miles with American Airlines
  15. I think I would be a great NASCAR driver (most are terrified when they ride with me...I'm a good bad driver)
  16. I worked as a sourcing manager in the apparel industry prior to blogging & traveled all over the world for it!
  17. My favorite relaxing vacation is Hawaii & my favorite city to get away to is NYC
  18. I started my blog as a creative outlet from my full-time job, I never would have dreamed I'd be able to make it into my career. I'm so thankful for all of you helping to make Fashion Jackson possible.

    This is a totally random question, but what kind of socks do you wear with your sneakers? I have a hard time with short socks not falling down while I walk. Thanks!

    This is such a great idea for the post, I loved getting to know you better by reading through those facts.
    I also thought it was so funny how you wrote that you never had any cavity but you had to wear a full
    head set to fix your teeth because of the thumb sucking. 😀
    My sister was sucking her thumb until she was 8!!! No bribing could help in the world, I still don’t remember
    how she managed to stop.

    If you become a NASCAR driver, hopefully that means all passengers get helmets as well 😉
