Ten Things to Know About Me // Victoria's Secret Giveaway

First off, hello to my new followers! I think my recent surge in followers might have something to do with this little $215 VS giveaway (at the bottom of this post) hosted by Shane. Just maybe.
I thought this would be a perfect time to do a little "me in a nutshell" post for the new faces. While you're reading the blog (and I hope you are) here are ten things you should know about me:

ten things, to know about me, victorias secret giveaway, cat shirt

one. My dad got the idea for my name from Alyssa Milano, but it's pronounced differently. Think "Lisa" with "uh" at the beginning. After people getting it wrong in every way for years I'll answer to just about anything. But if call me Lisa I will ignore you.

two. In my wildest dreams I'm a UFC fighter and my intro music is Shipping Up to Boston by Dropkick Murphys.

three. I live for weekends and Sunday is my favorite day of the week. It usually consists of church, lunch and goofing off with my family that I love so much.

four. I like to read and horror novels are some of my favorites, especially The Exorcist.

five. Some of my favorite expressions are Mother of Pearl, For Pity's Sake and HOLY CRAP!

six. I used to be a picky eater until I realized everything I was missing out on! Now I'll eat just about anything you put in front of me. Expect tomatoes. Little red satan fruits is what they are.

seven. I never went to college. Not one day.

eight. Imagine Dragons' Night Visions album is me in music form.

nine. I'm very introverted and social situations sometimes stress me out. But it works out perfectly being married to an extreme extrovert.

ten. I like dogs, I really do. I'm just a cat person through and through. (If the shirt in the pic didn't make that clear enough.)

Now that you know the basics of Alyssa (not Lisa), feel free to enter this truly AWESOME Victoria's Secret giveaway.
PS. Hope to see you tomorrow for Ten on Tuesday!

  1. I did not know your name is pronounced like that! Pretty cool! :)

  2. I have to be 110% honest, I did not know it was Ah-Lisa! Learn something new every day. I've always liked that name, a friend from college had that name (just spelled differently!)

  3. I don't like tomatoes either. Nooe nope nope. I also didn't know that was how your pronounced your name. Now I know better!

    Stay safe tonight. Crazy Alabama weather!!!!!

  4. Love getting to know you more. I love sunday too.

  5. I already know and love your blog, but I didn't know your name is pronounced like that. It must be annoying to be called Lisa!!

    Love Dropkick Murphys. They always make me think of the Boondock Saints. I also say Mother of Pearl because I try to not swear too much and that seems like a decent substitute...though I usually fail!
