About Us*

 

What are you waiting for? Hopefully, not great grammer. But ‘For what are YOU waiting*?’ just sounded weird. We’re all waiting for something. Whether it’s the bus, water to boil, or some divine inspiration from life’s instruction manual- we all need fun things to do while we’re waiting.

We’re Coralie and Leigh. We are literally old school friends, having met at a boarding school nearly 20 years ago. We had & continue to have an enduring connection that binds us. We both originate from small towns in the South- Leigh, a small town in N.E. Georgia & Coralie, a small town in S.W. Alabama- and that perspective paints who we are on a fundamental level. We are both incredibly dynamic individuals who, despite success in numerous fields, are still searching for “the perfect fit”- in a variety of areas! What makes our blog special is our similarities AND differences (see what we did there?!). We each have different opinions and interests, but we both have a love of life, friends, family, food, and the funny! It was during Coralie’s maternity leave/5-month-not-really-vacation that she and Leigh decided they needed to share their particular brand of awesome with the world and so, along with Baby Bub, “Fun Things To Do While You’re Waiting…” was also born.

After high school, Leigh graduated from The University of Georgia and built her resume. She moved to Chicago to pursue her comedic creative dreams in 2005. Leigh really fell in love with Chi-town: the culture, the people, the restaurants, and one boy, Jo-Jo, in particular. She did not, however, fall in love with the weather and as such, she and Jo-Jo decided to relocate to Southern California so she could pursue to the eldritch arts of hustling in the entertainment industry. She loves her family, long walks, playing bridge, tea parties, and archaic crafting techniques. She is also, despite her interests, not 74 years old.

After high school, Coralie went on to attend Millsaps College in Jackson, Mississippi where she eventually found herself bartending in downtown bars. She moved to Auburn, Alabama to pursue a degree in hospitality at Auburn University. While attending school there she met her future husband, who she lovingly calls Bub, in Birmingham. After she graduated from Auburn, they married & moved to Gulf Shores, AL. Coralie managed a successful restaurant there on the coast until the birth of their son, Baby Bub, in October of 2012. She knew she wouldn’t be able to rear a child & work the demanding hours of a restaurant manager but still needed an income.

So, come hang with us while we explore fun things to do!

  1. You ladies are awesome! How can I subscribe to your blog? The subscribe link doesn’t seem to work. Cheers!

    • Deanna! So glad you like our little spot in the blogasphere! I am not sure why our subscribe link is not working… there’s no telling! An easy way to keep up with us is through a blog reader- I use Feedly, Leigh uses a different one. In the mean time, I will get on trying to figure out why the subscribe link is not working. We totally appreciate you stopping by and checking in. -Coralie

    • Hey Deanna! Would you believe that it has taken us this long to figure out how to do a subscription options? It has. We are definitely self-taught bloggers! Starting May 3rd, we’re creating a Newsletter that has our Fun Things guide to all that’s cool for the months (as well as a recap of the other posts you may have missed if you aren’t on our site alllll the time). There are several ways to subscribe: through the links in our website (sidebar, footer, menu, we’re trying to put it everywhere!). There is also a link on our Facebook page… and if that isn’t an option, you can go straight to the source! By clicking here: http://eepurl.com/cJml75 We’re really excited about this next step and would love it if you would consider subscribing! Thanks for reading! xoxo, Leigh
