A Little Bit of Earl

I  realized recently that I post about things that I buy, sew or love but never mention anything personal. I’m not a mushy- gushy girl so I probably won’t ever have posts that are “deep” because I like to make people smile and laugh. My life is by no means perfect. We all have problems and bad days and/or weeks. I just wanted to share a few facts about me, so if you’re interested…stay tuned.
Factoids:
1. My first name is actually Whitney. When my mom was pregnant she didn’t know what to name me, especially considering the fact that I was a surprise. (she thought that she had a stomach virus LOL) The only name she could think of was Boo. Yes, my mother wanted my God given name to be Boo. Thankfully, I had an older brother who didn’t want my head to be swirled in a toilet by bullies so he suggested “Whitney” as a name. 
2. Earl-Leigh is a combination of my Uncle Richard’s middle name and my own. My mom doesn’t believe in middle names because she hates hers, so my siblings and I only had first and last names. I don’t think she realized that Whitney was going to be such a common first name. Oh well! When Mike and I got married I was super psyched about naming myself. I talked about it EVERYDAY and everyday “my new name” would change. Until I landed on Leigh. My Uncle Richard passed away almost a year ago from cancer. He was a big man and full of life and opinions until he got sick. A few months after he died, I was thinking about what I wanted to name my indie biz and Earl-Leigh just came to me. And it just made sense. I couldn’t imagine it being anything else. 

3. I swear…a lot. Its like my version of meditation.
4. I take more pictures of my dog, Shira, than of any person I know. She’s super cute.
5. I love old movies and music from the 20s to 80s. Old school Cher is the best. I like to swing my hair and sing in my best Cher voice when Mike isn’t around. Don’t even get me started on my love for Celine Dion. 
6. I’m tinkle-shy (TMI, sorry) so I hum/sing in the ladies room. I do not like going to the ladies room in packs because I don’t like having conversations in there. That’s just weird to me. 

If you’ve made it through my prattling, you deserve praise and a cookie  cupcake but all I have are pictures. Ha!

    i am sooo very much with you on the personal posts opinion. i always post about beautiful things and things that inspire me but only recently (probably because i got married and wanted to share stuff about my wedding), did i start writing a tiny bit more personally. it's hard though isn't it?
