Hello and welcome!
I’m writing this “Get to Know Me” because it’s really hard to get a feel for someone’s personality by looking at styled tiny boxes on Instagram, a few seconds on Insta Stories, Tweets, FB Posts, you get it. I hope you get a sense of my personality and I’d love for you to comment and tell me about yourself as well. I’d love to get to know you all too!
I put this goofy looking picture here because it made me laugh when I saw it. I didn’t have the flash turned off and I look like a deer caught in headlights.
About The Rants of a Yat
My hair is naturally dark brown and I’ve been dying it numerous shades of red since my teens. I come from a very long line of natural redheads and it’s my favorite hair color. I’ve also dyed my hair black, brown, and blonde. I’m a chronic hair color changer.
My blog & social sites are called “The Rants of a Yat” because I am from New Orleans where a lot of natives speak with a certain dialect called, Yat. It’s a whole thing. I actually had a blog called “Rants of a Yat” sans “The” in 2009, it got hacked and…I digress.
I’m fairly sarcastic, I love to laugh, and find the humor in everything. If you are witty, come sit by me!
The best sound in the world is a baby/toddler laughing. You can’t possibly be in a negative mood hearing that sound.
I’m a 4x cancer butt-kicker & it doesn’t define me and I have been in remission for 19 years. Cancer made me change some of my ways, appreciate more, and not care about what other people think of me. Life is short. I have a long scar on the front of my neck from side to side, another one on the upper right of my neck, and one more on the upper left of my neck. These don’t bother me and, if anything, they remind me of what is important in life when I loose sight.
I’m a beauty product lover! I was wearing a full face of makeup to school in 6th grade and never stopped.
My feet are freakishly big for how short I am. I am 5’2 and wear a 9.
I’m a mother to two & a wife to one. The loves of my life.
I’m 44 years old and feel like I’m 30.
I have rosacea on my face and chest and sometimes it cooperates and other times it hates me. With the use of makeup and spray tans to help the look of it too. I’ve also had several treatments with dermatologists and although it is better, I will always be fighting redness.
I love pineapple juice & loathe pineapple pieces. I love cherry juice & hate cherries. The list goes on.
I think overly whitened teeth look like a mouth full of Chiclets and make me think of Ross from Friends.
My husband and I moved our family to North Georgia a few years ago and it still feels like yesterday. I’ve traveled to many of these places numerous time…Paris, London, Vancouver BC, Seattle, San Francisco, New York, Florida, Alabama, and only lived my whole life in New Orleans until about three years ago.
I could eat my weight in seafood…it’s kryptonite. Crawfish, Crabs, Shrimp, Lobster, Scallops…I’m in!
My adult body has been from a size 8 – 16 and I am currently a 14/16.
Randoms: I’m a huge fan of The Office, 80’s & 90’s music, old movies, amazing coffee, pizza slices so big you have to fold them, women support women, scream singing in the car, and champagne.
