Profile updated August 10, 2022.
Married childless-millennial. Dog-mom to an 11 year old Alaskan Klee Kai (Kodah), and 4 year old German Shepherd (Kenai)-got their names from Disney’s Brother Bear movie.
I am absolutely Christmas Crazy. I just love how people seem to be more kind, caring, and thoughtful at Christmas time. There’s just a totally different vibe as soon as the holiday season starts. It’s truly the most wonderful time of the year. Last year I left my smaller (5ft) tree up all year (no decorations) just for the ambience of the lights. This year I’m doing the same, but have been decorating it for each holiday/season! Currently planning my fall tree!
I am also a huge Disney nerd (ClearlyKaila on TikTok. Lots of Disney, dogs, and wildlife) My guest bedroom is covered in Disney art, shelves of collectibles, and the doorknob is the doorknob from Alice in Wonderland! (Found it on Etsy!)
I have a sick sense of humor-lots of death and abuse jokes-t’s how I deal with the traumatic things I’ve gone through. I’d rather laugh at my pain than deal with it. LOL I swear far more than I should, but that doesn’t make me a bad person. It’s just a colorful way to express myself. Hahaha
Lately, I have been totally addicted to Starbucks. I have tons of their cups. I buy their iced coffee from the grocery store and make iced coffee almost every day. If I don’t make it, I hit Starbucks and buy a vanilla sweet cream cold brew with cold foam. Sooooo good and not as sweet as you’d think it would be!
My swaps have always been fulfilled by the deadline, so please please please if you haven't received my swap-reach out and let me know! I tend to go above and beyond for swaps (especially type 3+) in hopes of brightening someone’s day. I mark my postcards/letters as sent the day I put them in the mailbox. Sometimes that’s before the mailman comes, sometimes it’s after. So please don’t be that person that comments “you marked this as sent 3 days before it was actually postmarked”… If it goes in my mailbox on a Saturday AFTER the mailman has come, it obv won’t be postmarked for Saturday.
***I sometimes forget to mark a package as "sent" the day I mailed it out-But I do try to remember to send a tracking number to my partner the day it is sent even if I forget to mark it.

~Please do not send bits and pieces of papers, or a few sheets of a notepad and call it a stocking stuffer or “extra”. I have no use for them and they will honestly just get thrown away, and I’d rather you not waste your own paper like that.
Allergies - I am allergic to Avon makeup. Not exactly sure what ingredient, but any time I've used their products my eyes swell shut. Also allergic to Neosporin.
***Please no homemade beauty products (soaps/lotions/etc) and no face masks as my skin can be sensitive to them.
