{Love You: Chelsea}



I am so excited today to be sharing with you my sweet blogger friend Chelsea from Haute Child in the City.  Like many blogger buddies, I can't remember exactly how Chelsea and I met, whether it was stumbling upon her blog or instagram, but I am just glad we were able to "virtually" meet.  Chelsea's fun, sparkly, and sassy personality exude on her chic lifestyle blog Haute Child in the City, and I am excited for you all to see what she is loving about herself today.   

"I love that I am decisive
I have the ability to quickly come to a decision and stick with it.  Sometimes it can be to a fault; but mostly, it enables me to get in and out of the grocery store much more quickly than the average person.  Anything that acts as a time-saver for me is aces in my book. 

I love that I am loyal
To my friends, family, and colleagues, I am one of the most loyal people that you will ever meet.  I will always be there for you, I will travel great distances to support you, and I will go to the mat for the people in my life.

I love my scars and random body idiosyncrasies
From the small stitch marks on my forehead from my first stitches to my oddly shaped toes from years of dance, they are all a part of who I am and tell the story of my life.  Also, it's super fun to mess with people when they inquire about certain ones. "Oh that chunk out of my leg?  Shark attack."


I love that my superpower is the ability to wear any height of heels without feeling pain
Sure, it’s a little freakish that the nerve endings in my feet don’t communicate with my body well and I’m sure that most doctors would read this and tell me that I needed to lay off of the heel wearing, but being 5’0 on a good day, this super power comes in handy.  It also makes me a bad gauge for people who ask, “Are those shoes comfortable.” My answer is ALWAYS yes.   

I love that I have the most random (and at times, terrible) taste in music
My iPod has everything from The Clash, to GirlTalk, to Vampire Weekend, to John Mayer to Van Morrison, to The Beatles, and yes, even the entire music catalog of the one-and-only Britney Spears and Taylor Swift, as well as most of the songs from Glee.  I unapologetically download Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez.  It should be shameful, but for me, it’s totally not. #sorryI’mnotsorry

I love that I am a nerd
I’m a totally science nerd and I love to read, mostly nonfiction.  I never want to stop learning and I think that the thirst for knowledge is an under appreciated quality.


I love that my sister and I are close
My sister and I haven’t always been close.  In fact, it wasn’t until I went away to college and she started high school that we actually could tolerate being the same room as one another.  Most of that was my fault; I was too cool to have a little sister hanging around and we fought like cats and dogs.  I’m lucky and thankful that she and I are very close now because there is such an awesome bond between us a sisters; a sense of comradery that only we will every truly understand being sisters.  Not to mention she’s way cooler than I’ll ever be and is such an amazing Aunt to our little guy.

I love that I don’t own a scale
Seriously, if you asked me what I weighed right now, I couldn’t even wager a guess because the last time I was weighed was at my post-partum appointment after my son was born which was over a year ago.  I just don’t see a point to obsessing over a number; as long as I’m happy with what I look like, my clothes fit, and I’m eating well, it’s just not a priority to me.


I love that I am comfortable in my own skin
It’s taken a while to get here, but I’ve gotten to the point in my life where I know who I am, I don’t regret any foolish decisions from my past, I know what I like (and what I don’t), I’m settled in my life and career, and I’m happy with and appreciative of where I am."    

Do you see what I mean about being sassy???  I love that she jokes with people that she was in a shark attack because her toes and feet are a little wacky after years of dance.  I also really loved that Chelsea shared her love for her sister.  I too became very close with my sister, especially after I went to college, and so often relationships with other people are such an important part of our lives and certainly something we should cherish.  A big thanks to Chelsea for sharing so much on the blog today.  I am not surprised, but happy to know she is just as beautiful on the inside as the outside.  If you have not checked out Haute Child in the City yet, the site is a must.  Happy Friday...J
