Guest Post, Get to know Simply Sami

Hello to everyone here at Lady Luck! Hope you all are having a great Thursday!!!

I blog over at Simply Sami.

Since some of you do not know who I are 25 things you may or may not know about me!

1. I am a 30 year old, stay at home mom to the most awesome 3 year old (Nathan) ever!! My hubby is Brian.

2. Being a SAHM is not by choice....someone help me find a job!! 

3. I have lived in Illinois all my life, but have moved like 10 times. 

4. My maiden name (Bertram) is a character on Family Guy, a character from the Sandlot, a town in Texas (and other states, too), a brand of yachts and in a title of a book. (and there may be others)

5.  I do not like raw tomatoes, but I like ketchup, pasta/pizza sauce, stewed tomatoes and tomato soup. 

6. I had braces in 6th grade until the end of my freshman year of high school because I hated wearing the little rubber band things at night when I was supposed too. 

7. I will always be a Chicago Cubs fan even if we don't win this year (or next year). And, I will never ever, ever be a Sammy Sosa fan. 

8. I was a swim instructor for the Mathewson's for 4 years. The pool was in their backyard, we had 600 kids come through in a summer, ages 3-14 and I taught my little brother and sisters to swim and dive. Oh, and my first job was as a lifeguard at the "pit" in Forrest (the small town I grew up in). 

9. I love softball, but I didn't play my sophomore, junior or senior year of high school. I did however play Bradley Women's Club Softball for 3 years. 

10. We (BU Club Softball) had one game our first year against U of I and had only 7 people. We lost. 

11. I was a cheerleader in 8th grade. GO! FIGHT! WIN! 

12. I bought myself a coach purse when I graduated from Bradley in 2006. 

13. I am a pencil person not a pen person. 

14. I love peanuts, yet I do not like to eat peanuts in cookies, chocolate, etc. 

15. I love strawberries and kiwi's but do not like drinking them together. Anything strawberry kiwi makes me nauseous. 

16. I am a social media junkie. I check my Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest like 3 times an hour. Seriously. I am addicted. 

17. My phone is never more then 10 feet away from me. Hence #16. 

18. . I have a brother that is 10 years younger than me, a sister that is 12 years younger than me and another sister that is 14 years younger than me. 

19. My sister, Maggie (12 years younger...), died last year in a car accident. She was 16. I miss her everyday. Always & Forever Maggie. Check out my Running 4 Maggie page. 

20. I participated (high school) in the madrigals, choir, band, marching band, jazz band, jazz choir, and the musical for 5 years, including my 8th grade year. I played the flute, tuba (8th grade with Marcus Miller), and saxophone. I usually sang alto. 

21. I still love to play beer pong in our garage! Yes, I played in College and it reminds me of back then. Come on over and challenge me! 

22. My nicknames are Sami, Sam, Samster the Hamster (thanks DJ),  Shock and Aw (I have huge boobs) and Sami Kooz (I will explain below). 

23. Brian's nicknames are Cheese and Ciaccio (our last name). When we first met, I thought his name was Ciaccio because that is what everyone called him. 

24. I call Nathan, Nate-Dog, Nate, bubba, bubby, little man, bugger, bubba man, mister man, and pretty much anything ending with man. LOL. 

25. I carry a koozie with me at all times. Seriously. I have 2 in my car and 1 in my purse all the time. I use it at the bar and someone always comments on it. It's my thing. 

That's it. There ya go. Hope you learned a lot about me! Good luck to Britney on the rest of her moving and thank you for having me guest blog!
