About Me

Hello! My name is Riley Jo. Basically all you need to know about me is that my 2000 and Macaulay Culkin's 1994 are pretty much identical. 

Just kidding, sort of. 

Not really sure what to write on these little about me sections. I find it hard to contain myself in one little paragraph. So I will just do the best I can here.
-I have been blogging since the MySpace days but only in the last two years I have begun to take it "seriously" AKA I keep business cards in my purse which I wish I could say I give out at fancy blog conferences but really I just throw them in jars at restaurants to get free lunch.
-I teach middle school, specifically 8th grade gifted students, English and History. I am currently getting my Master's in Gifted Education. I have a passion for these little smartie pants, and I call my classroom the "writing bootcamp". 
-I am married to Mark. He is quarter Japanese. Currently, he works for a large news source in Utah on their social media team. He cooks, cleans and generally just keeps me alive.
-We see one big dog and zero babies in our near futures.
-We live in a basement apartment in Lehi, Utah until Mark gets out of school.
-I am a PLANNER. I plan everything. I love and live to plan. My family calls me the cruise director. I can't stop. I love parties.

So that's a little bit about me. Check out my "Popular Posts" tab for the highlights! 

However, Pinterest tells me a lot of you are here because of our wedding. Our wedding almost killed me was super awesome. Check out part one and two!

Thanks for checking me out!

  1. You are too cute! Not sure if you remember me from BBYC but it was fun to stumble across you in the blog world :)

    1. Brooklyn! Yes I remember! How fun. You are the greatest!

  2. Hi! I just came across your blog (not sure how -- I think I was comment-stalking), but I'm so glad I did! I can't wait to read more! What part of MD did you move to? That's where I'm from (but I live in VA now) so if you need any place recommendations let me know!

    1. Hi! Gosh, I always end up a million years away from where I started stalking haha. So this comment made me realized I need to update my About Me section! We moved back to Utah from Laurel, MD. I loved it there so much, though!

  3. Hi I found your blog from Emily's Happy List links, and I just gotta say that this is the best About Me Page that I have ever read! Thanks for keeping things real.
    I'm excited to start following your blog.

    1. Hi!!! Thank you so much! These pages always leave me frazzled. Thanks for following!!!
