I figured since, we haven’t done a get to know me post since my very first one, we would do some fun facts! It’s so hard to come up with “fun facts” because I don’t think they are that interesting! I think that is something we all struggle with, so let’s be more confident in ourselves, and share!
My full name is Tealagean Duhamel, Tee-la-jean, no middle name. Maiden name, Spring. When I was younger I would call myself tealabing ping lol
I started on a bowling league when I was 2, until I was like 10.
I started dancing when I was 4 or 5, I started with just a tumbling class, then quickly moved to ballet, jazz, contemporary, belly dancing, tap, pointe, hip hop and more.
I danced on a cruise ship with my studio when I was about 8 and got offered a professional dancing job on that cruise ship. I denied.
I competitively danced for 21 years. I could put up a whole blog post about this. So look for that lol
I was born and raised in Vancouver, Wa. Ya know, close to Portland, OR.
Met my husband in high school, where we started dating junior year. Thankful for my high school sweetheart, and the wild adventure high school was.
My high school dance team won national titles, in Texas.
After high school, I went to Eastern Washington University, then Markus joined me there, winter quarter after Basic Training.
I joined the Dance Force there, realized that was a big NOPE, and created my own team. Unfortunately, it only lasted the duration that I was there.
Markus and I got engaged December of 2014, right before our last quarter of college.
The day after we graduated in June of 2015, we packed up, headed back to Vancouver, and prepped for our wedding that was only two weeks away.
A few months after, we loaded up all of our belongings, and moved half way across the country to Fort Riley, KS.
Kansas wasn’t exactly where we wanted to first move in this Army journey, but it ended up being pretty awesome.
Kansas has my forever favorite donut place, called Varsity Donuts.
Manhattan , KS also has my favorite cookie delivery place, that delivers cookies until 2 am. Hi, why isn’t that in Lacey? Lol
We welcomed our 1stbaby boy in Fort Riley, Kansas.
We welcomed our 2ndbaby boy in Olympia, Wa.
It took me approximately 5+ years to finally start this blog.
I work with the #1 skincare brand in North America.
OKAY. So that was A LOT harder than I expected it to be. I guess some of them weren’t really facts about ME, but overall, it’s what makes me me. I hope this helped you get to know me a little better. For those of you that do know me, what are some “fun facts” that I forgot? It’s hard making a blog about just me, when my life revolves around so many other things lol
Stay Confident <3
So happy you decided to do this blog and I loved reading these (even though I knew all of this already). Can’t wait for the next blog and you for sure need to do one about your dance career!
