10 Random Facts About The Real Me

Before I post on DocWife.com, I always ask, “What do readers want to read?” I try to give helpful advice to solve your problems.

But most importantly, I want to be your friend. That’s what really matters most to me. Even though there is a screen in between us and I don’t know your name, I want you to feel like we’re having a conversation in my living room.

So, I’m going to write a fun post so we can get to know each other better! ❤️

10 Random Facts About Me

  1. I blog 95% of the time on my phone as I’m putting the kids to sleep. Once their eyes are closed, I whip out my phone, the world is quiet, and I get to work.
  2. We had a macaron bar at our wedding at a time when most people (at least where we lived) had never tried one before. It was a hit. And our guests still remember it today.
  3. I don’t care for fresh flowers because I have a hard time parting with them when I have to throw them away. But I do love potted orchids because they last as long as I give it an ice cube each day.
  4. My favorite shows are Sherlock Holmes (with Benedict Cumberbatch) and Downton Abbey.
  5. I love to play with my kids. And when I play, I’m on the ground with them and chasing them. My favorites are puzzles, hide and seek, and activity books.
  6. I like genealogy and having a connection to my family’s past. I studied French as a minor because I wanted to speak it as my grandparents did. But I should have learned Spanish because I’ve never had to use my French!
  7. You can’t buy my love. But you can buy me ice cream, which is basically the same thing.
  8. My dream is to do medical missions alongside my husband in places like Vietnam. I am originally from that country and it has a special place in my heart.
  9. My husband, who was inspired to become a GI doc because of his love for food, taught me how to make some of my best dishes. Verdict is out there if student has surpassed teacher! 😉
  10. I grew up an only child until I was 11 when my sibling was born. I never want to feel as alone as I did as a kid again. I love the noise, chaos, and hustle & bustle of large families and get-togethers.
