Hello, My Name Is...

I've been thinking about starting a blog for the last few months. My sisters both have amazing blogs that are impossible to top or match. Em is a graphic designer and currently finishing up grad school at SCAD. She is extremely trendy and creative in ways I can only dream to be. Hanna is in Chicago working in publishing and is always witty and creative and unique. She is always posting the latest music she is loving, books that are must reads, latest amazing projects, and of course Chicago is just a great town to live. I am an engineer in Ohio. Yawn. As you can see, it seems that I am the only left brained Scott girl. I am constantly trying to prove that I am just as creative as my sisters. And yes, in my own way I know I am creative too and just as interesting...   

Anyway, I will be 30 in just shy of 6 months. It has gotten me thinking about the things I want to accomplish. Everyone has heard of the 30 before 30 list. I've contemplated it, but I realized that I have had a very full and busy past couple years and many of the items would have made the list had I written it on my 28th birthday. Just a few being:  get married to the most wonderful guy on an island, go on an adventure honeymoon (New Zealand), start nesting, and fall in love with the 2 most adorable boys ever (Ryan and Mark). I also realized that there are numerous things that I don't want to squeeze into the next 6 months to just get done so they can be crossed off a list.  

Don't get me wrong, there is 1 thing that has to happen before my 30th birthday. Until it gets accomplished, I am not going to share but I promise tons of pictures and full details later.  

But, back to blogging. Andy and I recently moved into a new house that will hopefully be "the one." It was built in '84 so there are various projects already started and renovations slated for the future. I thought this would be a good time to start documenting our life for family and friends that are interested.

  1. YAY!!! It's about time! Also, while you may take offense to not being thought of as creative as we are (and really that's just in your imagination-I think of you as just as creative as Em or I), I am offended not to be considered analytical...just 'cause I'm not an engineer doesn't mean I wasn't excellent at Physics, thank you very much. I would rather all the Scott girls just be thought of as very well-rounded.

  2. Great, now we have three blogs to keep the parents informed on the Scott girl's adventures. I am finding that creativity to blog did not come from your old man as I cannot even fill a few lines for this reply. I can take credit for giving you the ability to tell a concise, in-depth story thereby holding your audience spellbound.

  3. oh my mind does wonder at the ONE thing to definitely be accomplished before your thirtieth!!! I'm excited to have the full trio of blogs to follow!

    1. Baby. No, tattoo. No. Quit her job to become a full-time blogger. No, it's gotta be the tattoo. Yep, definitely a tattoo. Sorry, Dad.
