about me

I blogged nearly nine months without an about me page...  Why?!  Well, it's awkward to talk about yourself - much like that darn profile picture!  But, I felt like I needed to tell you a little bit about me - ya know, just in case you were wondering!

Howdy, I'm Holly!  (I don't really go around saying "howdy" - it's just an Aggie thing!)  I was born and raised in the piney woods of East Texas but have lived in Aggieland for 20 years. I've lived here longer than I've ever lived any place else - it's home and I can't imagine living anywhere else!
I'm been married to Mike for the past eighteen years and we have three kiddos - Colby-age 13, Holden-age 10 and Hope-age 5.  I'm a stay at home mom which is funny since I'm hardly ever home!
Let's see - I love God, my family, my friends, random acts of kindness, chocolate, Instagram, chips & queso, the Aggies, college football, sleeping late, eating dessert for breakfast (preferable after sleeping late!), crafting, making people smile, planning events, volunteering, online shopping, Target, Chick-fil-A, finding the perfect gift, and road trips - just to name a few!

Things I'm not too fond of are walking into a crowded room, flying, having my trust broken, mixed texture foods, and OCD.

And, I bet you're wondering, "why is your blog called While I'm Waiting"?  You can read more about that here!

And there you have it - me in a nutshell!  :)
