I was very sweetly nominated by the lovely Katie of Denim and Fringe for a Liebster award.  I started this blog over Christmas break.  I had time off from work and became obsessed with Instagram style bloggers.  I’ve always been a creative minded person and so I dove in.  It’s been a fun learning curve and I can’t get enough.  The name “something cute happened” comes from a hilarious comedian named Neal Brennan.  He wrote a bit about “women” and “cute” that had me in stitches.  Here’s the link:


The way it works is I post 5 facts about myself, answer Katie’s 5 questions below, nominate 5 other bloggers and give them 5 questions to answer. So, here we go!

5 facts about me:

  1.  I am a retired ballerina.  I started dancing at age 6 and toured on a national level as well danced with the Cologne Ballet Academy in Cologne, Germany.
  2. I am extremely claustrophobic !  Yikes!
  3.  I worked for Disney for years as “friends” with Cinderella.
  4. I have a weird ability to remember names – like even people’s kids’ names that I hardly know.  It freaks me out.
  5. I’m an extremely structured/organized person.  Like to a fault.  I wish some days I could break routine but, I don’t know how.

Here are my answers to Katie’s 5 questions:

  1. What is your guilty pleasure as a parent? Shopping alone at Target.
  2. What does your “mom uniform” consist of?  Either ripped jeans or denim shorts, a casual T, and sandals.  
  3. How did your marriage change after becoming a parent?  Good question!  It definitely made us closer after our son was born but, it’s work to make time just for us.  We try to go out once a month and set aside one night a week to watch bad reality TV together. 
  4. Who is your favorite person to follow on Instagram? @gaiaandnina
  5. What is your favorite beverage? Coffee!
