Let me introduce myself...

Hello everyone!

I thought I would start my first post by telling you a little about myself and my blog.  My name is Marissa.  I am a twenty something newlywed.  I was married in June 2011 to the most wonderful man in the whole wide world.  I am a full time student at a university in the sunny state of Florida.  My husband, Travis, is in the military and he works full time.  I am majoring in Elementary Education.  I love children and I can’t wait to teach.  I would love to teach first or second grade.  I love shopping, the beach, baking, reading, crafts, and pretty much anything that will keep me entertained.  I will try (almost) anything at least once.  I hate sitting still.  I love to talk.  I’m young, and I have a lot to learn about a lot of things, but each day is a new adventure.

As you probably have guessed, the title of my blog, "Glass Slippers and Combat Boots," is due to the fact that I am married to a soldier.  At this point, I’m not 100% sure what I will be writing about.  Most will probably be about my life and the things that I’m going through.  I often become passionate about random things and don’t stop talking about them.  Therefore, I will probably be blogging a lot about those things as well.  I love makeup and beauty supplies, so I may post my reviews on those types of things from time to time.  I decided to to start my own blog after seeing that a lot of my friends have them, and I thought this might help me keep track of all my favorite blogs as well.  Obviously I am new to blogging, so keep that in mind when you’re reading my posts.  :)

I may wear the glass slippers... but my hero wears combat boots. ♥
