Q & A : 8 Things to Know About Me

Hey friends!

It has been brought to my attention that many of you don't know much about me!
I thought it would be pretty cool to tell you 8 facts about me that pretty much summarizes me as a whole. Behind my planners, I am a pretty simple person. I like to live simplistically and functional.

I thought hard about a few things I could share with you that you wouldn't know and this is what I came up with:

1. I am a Christian.

I am a true believer in Christ as my Savior, and a huge believer in forgiveness. I try to have a pure and free heart that radiates Christ's love. I love all people, and try not to judge. I believe everything happens for a reason, and trust that everything is in God's time and planning.

2. I am married and an Army wife.

I married my college sweetheart in December of 2016. We met his Freshman year of college in 2010, and have been together ever since. He enlisted in the Army in June 2015. Ever since then, I've learned what it's like to love someone in the military. I've learned that country and duty always come first, and have learned to be okay with that. I have also learned that our love is unbreakable and stronger than I ever could have imagined. Life has thrown us some crazy balls, but we've learned how to bat. I am thankful for this journey and the community we are apart of.



3. I live in Hawaii, but can't wait to go back to NY.

I can't believe I'm actually saying this, but I cannot wait to go back to New York. We currently are stationed in Hawaii. It is as beautiful as the photos, but I'm ready to go home!

Hawaii is wonderful. We have seen so many amazing things here. The hikes and adventures here are spectacular. It's definitely a blessing to be stationed here and I really do love it. Here are a few of my favorite places:

Ala Moana Beach


Diamond Head


Bellows Beach




4 I am a Social Worker.

I have my bachelors and masters in social work. My dream job is to work in a psychiatric hospital, or working with homeless people. I have always had a passion to help people who cannot help themselves, or are not given the chance too. I'm currently waiting to take the licensing exam in Hawaii, and applying for jobs every day. But I won't lie, I don't mind taking a little break from school and work, and relaxing in this amazing place.

P.S. I am definitely ready to go back to work as soon as I can get a job! :)


5. I love animals. Cats are my favorite.

I think everyone already knew that but hey. I'll show you a few photos.

Willow Bean - She is currently in NY with my parents. She had too much furr to make her way to Hawaii. I was afraid she'd get too hot here.


Drake - My parents English Springer Spaniel who is also my favorite, but in New York. He is also my parents dog. He is a spunky boy who LOVES to hunt and snuggle.


Max- We rescued Max when we moved to Hawaii. He is a German Shepard Mix, and is such a ball of energy and love. He is only 6 months old, and we are so excited to watch him grow.


And my goof-ball Scotti- Scotti is such a blessing. I first saw him when we went to the Humane Society in Hawaii after I arrived on the island. At the time we were living in a hotel and couldn't have pets. I was so upset that we had to leave him there. I just had a gut feeling that Scotti was meant to live with us but we had to leave him. We went back a few times and Scotti had been adopted. I was happy he had a home, but so bummed he wasn't with me.

We went back on a day that they were having a deal for military adopting dogs. I had decided just to peek in the cat cages just to see what they had, and to my surprise, the person who adopted my baby had returned him. He was hiding in a corner and terrified. I ran in and picked him up, and from that moment. have loved on him like no other. This cat is special, and has so much love to give. He had been returned to the Humane Society 6 TIMES. I cannot understand why.

We are definitely blessed to have him.

6. I hoard planning supplies.

Don't we all? The amount of stickers I have could probably last me a lifetime. I have recently put myself on a no-spend. I maaaay have broken it a few times though ;) I love how creative some women are in the community, and am always so impressed with the quality of the items I receive. Etsy is a bad bad app to have ;)

For these photos- head on over to @planningourholmes on IG. I have thousands.... literally ;)

7. I love fitness.

I love seeing results, but I HATE working out. Thank God my husband is very dedicated and is always pushing me to go. I love workout clothes, and I love the gym, but I hate physically working out.

8. I could binge watch Netflix 24/7.

My current favorites are Gilmore Girls, Law & Order: SVU, Fixer Upper, & Heroes. I could obviously go on and on, but those are the 4 I'm between right now!
Heroes is frustrating me. It's a show I watch with my husband, and were on the second season but it's SO confusing. Has anyone else watched this?

So there are a few things that pretty much sum up who I am. Like I said, I'm pretty simplistic and functional. I don't have many secrets or skeletons in my closet. I like to think I am an open book and someone who is pretty comfortable sharing my story and how I got to where I am.

Thank you for reading and I hope you now know a little more about me and where I come from.
If you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask!

Until next time,
Jennifer
