Speed dating

Sorry folks, I am a married woman so unfortunately this post won't be worth your time if you are single and ready to mingle.

So here are some get to know you tidbits about the author of The Chronicles of Ruthie Hart...


I am a Christian and wild about Jesus.


I am a Libra not only by birth but personality. I am indecisive (& impatient) but also very extroverted and positive. The "body part" for Libra is lower back which is weird because I broke mine...
Yes I broke my back. Partner stunting (with my BIL) when I was 14. It will always be broken and gives me pain often, more on that later.


My favorite book is Redeeming Love. I've read it a handful of times yet it still moves me.

I hate the sound of a toilet flushing and if you've ever lived with me, you know I sometimes leave #1 in the potty so I don't have to hear the flush. Gross I know. But it scares me. I close my ears in public and run for the hills after flushing.

I married an amazing man on February 5th, 2011. He's a stud and quite a catch. We want a big family someday soon and are praying for the right time to start.


Right now we are totally in love with our fur baby Ernie, the French Bulldog. He's a nut and has shown me how much I can love someone so quickly and compassionately (and patiently!)

Jon is from Cleveland, I am from the Chicago suburbs and we call Austin our home. He came to Texas to go to Baylor & I came with my family for my dad's job.  

I never got to meet Jon's dad. He passed away the morning of what was supposed to be our first date in 2009. I love hearing stories of my father in law, I think we would have gotten along really well. I've only met Jon's mom 1 time so I really don't have in-laws but we are so lucky to have our family here in Texas.
I didn't start cooking until we got married and now I cook most nights of the week and love it! My hubby is also a great cook and help in the kitchen. Thanks to Pinterest I am quite domestic. Being in the kitchen is therapeutic for me (and so is pulling weeds...weird huh?)


I sleep talk almost every night. In case you've missed some of Jon's "sleepy Ruthie quotes" here is a sample

I got my first gluegun before the age of 10 and have been attached to it since. I love crafting and although my talents have evolved over the years, my favorite memories were cutting up old Christmas cards and making ornaments and cards during the holidays (and anything with popsicle sticks duh)

Jon is 5 1/2 years older than me. We met when I was 20, he was 26...I was the intern where he worked.

I am a Zumba instructor and love helping people feel confident and beautiful. 


We painted a chevron wall in our new house...swoon.

My current breakfast obsession is Cinnamon Toast Crunch with Grape Nuts.

Jon and I read the bible together almost every night. We are using Reader's Guide to the Bible by Lifeway. We pray on our knees or hugging each night. 

I am not a movie theater person. I get antsy and uncomfortable and would much rather wait for it to come out on Netflix. When we do go, we go to the Alamo Drafthouse where you can eat while you watch :-)


We bought our first home this year and shot an episode of House Hunters...it should air later this summer!

That's a whole lotta random for ya!

This is great! There was so much I didn't know about you! I sleep talk too- but I think you win on the sleepy quotes, those had me cracking up!

Thanks for linking up!!

Amanda said...

I have to admit that I knew probably 90% of these fun facts, but that's also because I've been reading your bloggy blog for so long (and we've become such good friends)! How many more days?!?!

KRISTIN said...

Love this! Sleeping Ruthie quotes are my favorite!!! :)

Jessi said...

We have a saying in our house, "If it's yellow, let it mellow, it its brown, flush it down!" But that's because 1. the toilet backs up to the baby's room and sometimes it wakes him and 2. we're cheap like that. So nope, I don't think you're gross :)

I had no idea you were from Chicago! I totally thought we were a native Texan.

And I'm like you with cooking. My mom tried to teach me once or twice when I was younger but I wasn't interested. As soon as I got married tho, I started teaching myself. I love it!

I am Megan said...

You know, I have been following your blog since forerver, and I learned quite a few new things about you today. Always love Ernie, the most beautiful pup!

Rachel said...

Your toilet flushing phobia is hilarious! Too funny. Loved getting to know you more :) Oh, and I love that your a midwest girl at heart! ;)

Claire-Christine said...

Well that's a lot of fun, Ruthie! Thanks for the randomness post! I think I might incorporate this sometime into my blog!

You are really luck to have your family in Austin. I feel the same way about my parents :-)

Hope you have a happy Wednesday!

Chelsea said...

this was such a cool idea! loved getting to know you a little better. Your sleep-talking is so funny! And it's so sweet that you and your husband pray/ study the word together every night!

Mackenzie @ pintsizedmama.com said...

I loved learning more about you! I was glad to read that you love cooking but didn't start too long ago - I started really cooking this last year. I love your recipes, I am very surprised that you haven't been cooking for a long time!

Carolyn said...

Love all of this! :) The toilet flushing one cracks me up! HAHAHAHA :) I can't wait for mini Ruthie and Jon babies to start popping out! Wait. That sounds awkward. You know what I mean. :)

Daisy said...

Love this Ruthie! I totally copied you. It so sweet that you read your bible together every night :)

Allyson Butler said...

Such a cute post - I did this link up too. I thought it was such a great idea!

Girls Love Fried Pickles said...

So what you are saying is that I should never send you one of those prank buttons that you push that make the toilet sound for Christmas?

Carly Ann said...

I definitely hate going to the movies. Even when I get super excited about a movie, I make myself wait until it comes out on DVD.

Rachel Emma (Daydream Frenzy) said...

You and your hubby are adorable! I am also impatient and indecisive, but I'm a Sagittarius... hmmm, maybe I should have been born a Libra? ;) lol

Kelly said...

Loved learning more about you girl! Can't wait to see your house hunters episode! How fun!!!

Julie Keller said...

What a great idea for a post Ruthie!! Going to copy this idea for my post today. I too get antsy at movie theatres. I made one of my 27 Before 28 goals to go to the theatre on six dates to try and get over my fear. I just hate it!

BF said...

What a great picture of you and your puppy, and that's so true, a pup shows you a different kind of love. Honestly I didn't even know I had that in me before I got my dog.
