My name is Janna, but all my friends call me Beans. Why, you ask? Well one night nearly ten years ago when my husband and I had just started dating, we were watching the comedic treasure Encino Man, starring none other than 90s heartthrob Brendan Fraser. At one point in the movie when Pauly Shore is holding up a bag of beans, he says “BEEEEAAAAAANS,” and for some reason, I thought that was hilarious. My husband started calling me Beans, because he thought it was funny, probably because I made it clear that I did not like the name. After ten years though, it has grown on me quite much.
Aside from my nickname being Beans, I have been married to my dream guy since 2012, have a beagle-dachshund mix named Dobby (who is a complete jerk…but he’s our jerk), a daughter who was born in 2016, and I am obsessed with Disney. Like SUPER obsessed. For me, Disney is not a brand or company. It is a feeling—a way of life. Disney is my religion. If you want to experience my Disney obsession in full throttle, be sure to check out those blogs on the Disney category.
I try to be healthy by eating right and exercising, but I tend to slip up more than I should. However, my family’s health, including myself, is one of the most important things to me. I want us to live long lives with each other, and the best place to start that is through taking care of ourselves. I also love to travel, cook, hang out with the fam, and daydream about anything and everything. All of my blogs relating to these topics, you will find under the Lifestyle category. And what about the dollars? I make my money the good old-fashioned way. I am an auditor for a large local accounting firm. I know, I’m as basic as it gets, but I’m hoping you’ll enjoy my basic-ness, subscribe to my blog, and continue to revisit to see what I’m up to.
