10 Things You Didn't Know About Robyn Schaub

1. I'm an only child and an only grandchild. Oh yes, I have been spoiled my entire life. But I refused to let my own children be a "lonely only," so I was determined to have at least TWO kids. (And I do! Two girls, both just as spoiled as I was.)


2. I love karaoke, and I don't care how bad I am at it. Secretly, I think I coulda been a contender on American Idol, but unfortunately, I was above the age limit when it started. But that doesn't stop me from watching it and picking apart all the contestants. (I think I'm meaner than Simon.)


3. I used to be a Pampered Chef consultant, so I own every kitchen tool ever invented. Ironically, I rarely cook anything more than a Lean Cuisine or microwave chicken nuggets.


4. My husband, Adam, and I got married on a cruise ship, and it developed into a bit of an addiction. By the end of March, we will have taken six cruises in the past eight years.


5. I have two dogs that were rescued from the local pound: a smart and fiesty Jack Russell Terrier named Zoey and a lazy, sweet Labradoodle named Lilah. I'm trying to make up for their time in the pound by spoiling them shamelessly for the rest of their lives.

6. My brain has a built-in Starbucks GPS -- I have an uncanny ability to guess where one might be even if I've never been to it before. My usual order is grande-nonfat-no whip-white-chocolate-mocha.




7. I've played the piano since I was four years old, and my first job was as a teaching assistant at the piano studio where I took lessons. Now my 7-year-old is taking lessons, and I make her play duets with me.


8. My hair is naturally curly, but you'd never know it because I have flat-ironed the life out of it for years now. Last fall, I started getting Brazilian Blowouts so that I wouldn't have to flat-iron and it has changed my life!

9. I've had a lifelong dream to be on Wheel of Fortune. I've watched it since I was a kid, and now my husband and I watch it every night. We play against each other to see who can solve the puzzle first. And 95% of the time, I win.


10. I have absolutely ZERO athletic ability. None. There's not a single sport I'm any good at -- unless you count shopping.



I'd love it if you stopped by my blog -- today I'm featuring my favorite Imaginisce layouts -- and become a follower while you're there. We have some wonderful things in store for you this year, so stay tuned!

Leave a comment on both Robyn's blog and the Imaginisce blog and you could be selected to win!!

Fun facts, Robyn! I took my first cruise in 2009, and then my husband and I took my kids last year during the summer. The kids want to go on another cruise now. Safe to say that it will probably become a habit for my family!

I guess shopping does become a contact sport around black friday (or a really good sale at the lss!), so I'd have to say it's a handy sport to be good at! lol

Having naturally curly hair I can understand your desire to have straight hair. Do you ever, even for a moment miss the curls. A Brazilian Blowout seems so drastic.
