My Life is an Open Book

I am so excited to be a part of Hello Splendor's blog crawl!  Thanks to Ashley from Lemon and Lavender for sending you to Tiny Bit of Sparkle to learn more about the asian enigma we call Sarah.  OK, maybe a bit dramatic but it's a story so I reserve the right for embellishment.


 Hi, my name is Sarah and I'm addicted to coffee and blogs... much like the rest of you reading this.  I'm probably a lot like you but I'm double jointed and have a weird need to add splenda, ketchup or lemon juice to most drinks or meals (not all together, duh!).  I'm adopted so I don't really resemble my parents at all and do not speak Korean or any other Asian languages contrary to popular belief.  I also do not know Karate or Tae-Kwon Do even though I kinda wish I did now so I could karate chop the people that ask me.  I have an unhealthy addiction to television but I'm working on it.  I've discovered blogging a little late in the game but am clearly obsessed at this point.  I love living in a bit of a fantasy world through blogging and have enjoyed all of your daily doses of inspiration.  My love my husband, puppy, friends and family, tv & internet and of course all things food.  I guess you could splash a little wine in there as well.

We start this story in the beautiful Bluegrass, my hometown of Lexington, Kentucky.  

 Then, we trek cross country to none other than Los Angeles, California

then we settle back East Coast in Atlanta, Georgia (home to NeNe and peaches)

Me and the Hubs

Our Mischevious Wheaten Terrier, Teddy "the Situation" Sapp

 my amazing friends

 I attended the University of Kentucky and during my sophomore year, I spotted a tall, preppy blond hair, blue eyed boy on campus I knew I had to be mine.  Unfortunately, we were both attached at the time so we were nothing more than "study mates."  A year passed and  I had pretty much given up on "B;" however, on Halloween, (one of my favorite holidays) B called me and asked me to come hang out.  After learning about his rock and roll alter ego, I was in love (he basically lives in the 80's with Slash from Guns N Roses).  From that night on we were inseparable.

After we graduated, we moved to Los Angeles for a year and got grown up jobs.  We did all the touristy LA stuff but managed to find some awesome hidden gems (Nikki's, Martha's, random eateries in K-Town) off the beaten path as well.  Pretty soon, B's job moved him back to the East Coast where we now live, Atlanta, Georgia (actually Roswell).  Two years later, B popped the big question and 10 months later we got hitched!  Somewhere in between we managed to buy our first home and we're slowly but surely furnishing it.  Five months later, we gave birth to a beautiful blonde, wheaten terrier.  He looks more like his Dad than me... :)

After 3 years of working in sales for a Fortune 500 company, I decided to take a huge risk and quit to pursue something I thought would make me happier... still kinda working on that per say...  Stay tuned to find out what happens next!


This Blog Crawl has been so much fun!  I've loved learning about everyone else and really enjoyed working on my own post.  Thank you so much Beth for putting this all together!  Be sure and check out tomorrow post by Kristin at Candidly, Red!
