Who is Tonya? Let's get Acquanited Linky!!!

Today I am linking up with Latoya from Flying into First Grade for her very first linky party! I have been thinking about doing one too...maybe soon!

So the rules are to tell something about yourself using your initials! The really cool thing about this is...Latoya and I have the SAME initials, just in different orders! 

My initials are TLR. So...here I go!

I LOVE to travel
I didn't travel much as a kid. I went to my grandma's house all the time across the state (Michigan), and Florida once. But in college I had the opportunity to do a bit more traveling...and as many say, I caught the travel bug!

I have been to Vegas 4 times. LOVE it! 

I did a semester studying abroad in Ireland! I stayed there for 5 months and fell in love! I was able to travel all over Ireland when I was not taking classes or teaching in a classroom! My favorite place was the Dingle Peninsula. Sooo cool! I remember specifically riding down this road on our personal tour bus we had for the 5 months. It was SO scary!

While being overseas for 5 months I was also able to go to Rome, Paris, and London! Paris by was my favorite out of the three! 

And I also love coming to Hawaii! I am excited to call it home here very soon! This is where I will be living:)

L-Lip gloss
I am ADDICTED to lip gloss! Specifically anything from Bath and Body works

My husband thinks I am nuts for spending $7 a pop on lip gloss. But I have been using it for years. I sure hope they never stop making it!


I really want to run. I have been saying this for a very long time. My foot has been feeling a lot better and I want so bad to get back into running!  I ran my very first 5K a month before my wedding and I had a blast! It was the most amazing feeling EVER. I ran the WHOLE way without stopping. Mind you, my time was not great, I finished, I ran, and I felt great!

I WILL do it again!

Thanks for getting to know me a bit more! I need to go pack and get ready to head back to NC in a few hours! I can't wait to go check out some new blogs!  

I also finally added my capacity unit to TpT and TN! 
Have a great day!


  1. Hi! Thanks for linking up with me! I would love to go to Las Vegas. You have been to so many cool places. It is very cool that we have the same initials. I am now following you! I love your blog title and design.

  2. I am so jealous of this post! :) I told my fiance about you moving to hawaii and while he won't let us do that, we are talking about moving to florida next year! ;)


  3. Wow - how lucky to live in paradise! I am SO jealous you studied abroad in Ireland. I love that place!

    So glad to have found you through the linky!

    Lucky to Be in First

  4. I LOVE to travel too!
    My hubby has been to Ireland and is dying to go back! We're hoping to hit the Emerald Isle next summer :)

    Joy in the Journey
