Whitney here, the writer and blogger behind whitswildtribe.com. Today I’m sharing 15 things about me that you may or may not know. It’s pretty random, but hey that’s the fun of it right?
This was a tough post for me to write and share on my blog. I’m not sure why. Probably because I don’t love putting myself out there to anyone really. ANYWAY, I felt like I needed to give you guys a little background on who this blogger gal is by sharing a little about myself. Maybe we have one or more things in common!
I really, really want to know who you are as well!! Please leave a comment below with one random fact about YOURSELF so I can chat with you. Hopefully you will find inspiration here on whitswildtribe, useful tips and info (read our recent post about toddlers skiing here), and a warm community of like-minded individuals.

15 Things About Me!
#15- I am a mom of 2 toddler boys, 18 months apart. My husband and I met in college on spring break. That seems so long ago…
#14- I attended high school in the heart of downtown Dallas, Texas. We parked in a big parking garage and rode the elevator up to the 11th floor of an office building for class.
#13- I used to be ONLY a lake and beach gal. I hated cold weather. Now, snow is my favorite!
#12- I cannot keep a plant alive if my own life depended on it. My husband has officially cut me off from buying any new ones. However, I do manage to water our garden and somehow grow vegetables every year… I don’t know.
#11- I have an online shopping obsession. This just started after having kids because physical shopping with toddlers is so hard! Sometimes I just jump online to browse and look at all the pretty things. Nordstrom is hands down my favorite department store.
#10- I worked as an assistant buyer in cosmetics a few years back. I updated spreadsheet upon spreadsheet with sales of lipsticks, foundations, mascaras, and ALL!
#9- Our family eats wild game meat about 4-5 nights of the week. I have prepared and eaten venison, goose, duck, elk, fresh trout, antelope burgers, the list goes on and on.
#8- My degree is in Journalism, and I was once the sports editor of my college newspaper.
#7- I have heard an elk bugle in the wild, and it was magical. What’s an elk bugle you ask? Google it. Then add it to your bucket list!
#6- I played year-round basketball in high school and volleyball in college. I’ve always been into athletics and love a good competition. I still try to work out daily. Although, I swear it’s ten times harder to work out as a mom in my 30s than when I was playing college athletics!
#5- We have two dogs. Remington (Remi) is an English Pointer and about 10 years old. Sampson (Sammy) is a Miniature Pincher and Chihuahua mix and is about 8 years old. They are both rescue dogs.
#4- As a native Texan, I say things like come on ya’ll – I’m fixin to – were you raised in a barn?
#3- I have a paralyzing fear of heights. Which is something I constantly have to work on living near the mountains.
#2- Christmas is my favorite holiday. I love a warm, cozy fire in the fireplace and a great Christmas movie. What’s your favorite? If you say Christmas Vacation, then we will most likely be instant BFFs.
#1- Photography is my creative outlet. Writing used to be my creative outlet, but recently (as in the past 4 years since entering into parenthood) I have found that I am often too tired by the end of the day to keep a daily journal! I’m talking, fall-asleep-with-pen-in-hand tired. Anyone relate? Where my toddler mommas at?
Luckily, blogging lets me combine my passions for photography and writing.
