About aBlyssa

get it? aBlyssa? see what I did there? aaha...

It's true. I like to smile; smiling's my favorite.

or maybe laughing's my favorite, but smiling would be a close second.

My purpose for this blog was to highlight the things that make life blissful (or now... blyssful). When we call attention to these, it can make us all feel good!

In my blog, I'll be highlighting my life, my black lab puppy Chloe, my workouts, and my healthy eating habits along with some necessary indulgences.

AND my great family!
I have completed two half marathons (the 2009 OBX Half Marathon & the 2010 Rock N Roll Virginia Beach Half Marathon), and am in training for my third, the Virginia Beach Shamrock on March 20th 2011.

I grew up in a suburb of South Jersey, just outside Philadelphia. Medford, NJ will always be my home, and I'm a huge-o-mungo Phillies Phan to prove it.

I also spent three years living in Newcastle, England as a little one. From when I was 5-8 years old, I was having tea with my lit-uhl friends, wearing my wellies to school, and avoiding bangers in the school cafeteria.

After graduating high school in New Jersey, I headed on to Catawba College to earn my bachelors in Communication Arts with a minor in Spanish. Since my parents moved to North Carolina shortly after, I'm technically a current North Carolina resident.

sopho year at Cat-U seems like so long ago!
Eeeeven though I'm now living in Virginia Beach, VA! I love how close to my family I can be while living in such a fun beach town with my black lab Chloe. I see lots of beach trips, runs, and fun in our future!

she's my baby!
I'm  obsessed  I think Ke$ha is awesome (c'mon.. I just think her weirdness/originality is so cool), I consider wine, brownie batter, and cookie dough food groups, I've always dreamt of being Cinderella at Disney World, I've been in love with Jesse McCartney for over 10 years (judge me if you will), and I will forever be wishing I could down a Dairy Queen blizzard every day for the rest of my life.
I'm Ke$ha. Halloween 2010.
Before I landed my job as an Electronic Media Specialist and Communications Coordinator, I worked in many, many restaurants. My first summer out of college, I served on the management team of a waterfront restaurant. I worked with a fabulous group of girls I still keep in close contact with.

love my Tortugas girls!
I'm in love with my side job, in which I hand paint custom wine glasses. Please contact me if I can make you a wine glass for any gift!

And I'll always sing you a song. Or bust a move on the dance flo'.

there's nothing better than a dance floor + some of your best friends.
