Six things you should know about me, Riki Sanford.


Cutest Katie from The Silver Lining asked me to do this "you should know" thing and I couldn't be more flattered!
So first things first, go check out her bloggy blog. Her and her husband are just supes sexy.

And here are six things about yours truly!

RYLEEBLAKE

1. Let us in on a secret you haven't shared with your readers yet.
Hmmm...did you know that I work in an accounting office, and am a dance teacher/choreographer/dancer at Jive? Or that I've played the piano since I was five and love it soooo much? Oh, and I hate plucking my eyebrows so Blake does it for me, I rarely blowdry my hair, I have an unhealthy obsession with rings and shoes, I never cook, Zac Efron was my dream man when I was 14, everyone in my family got the singing gene except for me, and B swears I'll always be a little girl at heart and he loves that about me. Like yesterday! He was laughing at something I said and then explained, "I swear, you're just the cutest little girl that is forced to live in a grown up world and a grown up body". Immature, or young at heart? I'll never know. Maybe those two things are one in the same? But whatevs, B loves me for it, so that's cool.
2. What's your favorite part about marriage?
Besides all the sexy makeouts, entire nights of snuggling and an often shirtless B, my favorite part of marriage has been this: Blake's humor. I know I know. It's a totally cheesy and lame answer, but hear me out! When I was dating Blake, I was convinced that B was the funniest person on planet earth. But I had noooo idea. Now that we're married, husband Blake is 100% funnier than boyfriend Blake was. I'm not even kidding! He's a hoot, and we laugh together so much! Most times, it makes me cry cuz I'm laughing so hard. So that is totally a bonus to this whole marriage thing.


3. If you could have your dream job, what would it be?
I was about to say that my dream job would be to have no job at all. But that would be a lie. I think I would go completely crazy if I didn't have something to occupy my time while my kiddies are at school and what not. So here is what would be ideal...I would love to be a stay at home mom until my kids are old enough to go to school (being a mom is a job, RIGHT?! right). But currently, I am going to school at BYU, working on my bachelors degree in Human Development. I 100% plan on applying to grad school this year to one day receive my Masters in Human Development. So far, I have managed to maintain an academic scholarship, so cross your fingers that my GPA can get me in! And call me crazy, but I am dying to get my PhD. I want to teach Human Development at a University and do all things research and publishing. I actually love doing research and stats and all that crazy stuff, so I feel like that would be a career that I would thrive on. But I know, it's far fetched. Especially with Blake's goal of being a Dentist, and my goal of having a million kids. Can you imagine paying for dental school, a masters program AND one millions kids?! Ya right. But a girl can dream, right? Good thing I have a plan B. When I heard that dentists have the hightest rate of cheating on their wives and divorce, I told Mr. Sanfy that I'll be his secretary and hire only dental assistants that are taller than him, teethless, tattooed to the hilt, with zero personality. So if I ever hire you as my husbands assistant, you'll know what I think about you. Oh ya, you non-personality, toothless person.

(I can't really find a pic for this...sorry!)

4. How did your blog come about?
I made my blog on the night before my 19th birthday! I was with a bunch of friends and they all helped me put it together. And some people have asked what "on the reals" means. So let me tell you. At the time of making my blog, I used the term "on the reals" all the time. For instance, "on the reals, I love your pants" or, "on the reals, Zac Efron is so hot" or, "Do you swear it Rik?" "yup...on the reals". So I thought it fitting as my blog title. Also...we all love when people are real and raw right? And that's what I wanted my blog to be. I mean...sometimes they'll be all that fluffy duffy crap here. But on the reals, too much of that will kill everyone. So the stuff here is just real...whether it be flutty duffy or not. So there you go! On the reals, kids.

5. Guilty pleasure?
Ice cream. I told B that the 2 most common phrases used by me in our marriage have been...
1. I love you
2. Can we get icecream?

And it's the truth. I ask him to get icecream with me way too much, it's almost embarrassing. The best/worst thing is that he's always more than willing. I'm gonna die of an excess of icecream in a few years, I can feel it in my bones. Call it an addiction or true love, but either way, it's my guilty pleasure.

^^this is actually gelato. In Italy. Which, by the way, is highly overrated. I'd take some Cold Stone over some italian gelato any day! Please don't roast me for saying that, okay?

6. Who do you admire most as a blogger and why?
I have been stalking Claire White since I was a freshman in college. She's was my first blog crush and still remains my very fav. She is so real, beautiful (inside and out), has the best style, her pictures will blow you away, the cutest husband, and writes like you couldn't believe. Want a dose of everything good in this world, go check out her blog. allthebellesandwhistles.blogspot.com
