Allow Me to Reintroduce Myself...

In honor of me buying this little ole blog it's very own domain I thought I'd celebrate with a post to help you get to know me better. I haven't written an "about me" post since way back when I started blogging and I have some new readers that I would like to get to know me so I hope you enjoy these fun facts...

I started this blog to document wedding planning and it's evolved into a lifestyle blog now.

I named it Former Kennedy from the start to pay homage to my maiden name and because I didn't want to have to change the name of my blog several times. I felt as though Former Kennedy stuck and I haven't grown tired of it yet.

I'm a proud alum of West Virginia University and absolutely loved my time large part to my sorority, Sigma Kappa.

I was set up with my husband by my sorority sister and bestie, Erika. They worked together at a college in West Virginia and were roommates. He messaged me on Facebook with a quote from one of our favorite movies. We talked everyday for a month and then they both flew down to Orlando for a weekend (so he and I could meet) and the rest is history.

I am one of those crazy Harry Potter fans. If you like HP we're going to get along just fine...even if you aren't a Slytherin like I am.

I'm obsessed with really, our schedule revolves around the show lineup. We have lived in Atlanta going on three years and I'm so bummed I haven't run into a real housewife yet, only Porsha's ex-husband (Kordell) at Home Depot one time. At our reception our wedding party walked out to Kim Zolciak Biermann's "Don't Be Tardy for the Party" and Brian and I walked out to the Vanderpump Rules theme song...and yes I did toss my veil like Lisa used to toss her scarf.

I worked for Disney at the Walt Disney World Resort for five years. My roles included: merchandise, front desk, concierge, guest relations, guided tour guide, call center agent, Disney University Facilitator, and VIP Tour Guide. This year I want to have a lot more Disney tips and tricks posts and maybe a giveaway or two. One of my biggest pet peeves are poorly written and researched posts about WDW.

I consider myself an outgoing introvert and those close to me agree. I'm standoffish at first but once I'm comfortable I'm nothing less than rowdy. This is what I consider my best and worst quality.

There ya have it! A few things about me and my life that you might not have know. Have any questions about me or want to share a fun fact of your own. Comment below!
