Getting to know me...

Here's some mildly amusing facts about me which you may or may not know:

  • This is my BFF Amanda and I in the 8th grade. We have been best friends since 3rd grade. We bonded over Barbie. (I'm in the pink shirt with the ginormous glasses)
  • Said best friend and I went to summer camp with Conway Twitty’s granddaughter.
  • My mom used to be a Civil War reenactor - really. My brother and I would go with her sometimes. I had a whole outfit and everything.
  • The first time I really ever drank alcohol was at my friend Randi’s house our senior year of high school. There were lots of people there and I was afraid we’d get caught so I cleaned up all the bottles and cans and drove around with the trash bags in my car the next day until I found a dumpster to throw them in.
  • I'm a speed reader, if I'm really interested in a book I can devour it within a couple of hours.
  • The name of my blog comes from my parents, my mom's maiden name was Short and my dad's last name is Rose so Short + Rose = me.
  • I played the clarinet in band. I also played the bass clarinet and the cymbals (not very well).
  • I did community theatre from the ages of 12-18. My favorite plays were "Camelot" and "Li'l Abner", I have still been known to belt out "The Lusty Month of May" on occasion.
  • My wedding was at the Stax Museum of American Soul Music . Our first dance was to Otis Redding's "These Arms of Mine" and we got our pictures taken in Isaac Hayes' solid gold Cadillac.
