Welcome to our first blog post! We were both inspired to start this lifestyle blog because of our passions for fashion, cheerleading, fitness, food, and faith. We have both been talking about starting a blog for a very long time and now we are finally doing it! On this blog we want to share what we love, express who we are, and help inspire others along the way. To start off, we thought it would be perfect to share 10 things about ourselves! We are probably the most identical set of twins you will ever see so these 10 things completely apply to both of us. We hope this helps y’all get to know us a little bit better! Here we go!
- We have a passion for God.
One of our favorite things about this blog is that we will get a chance to share our faith with you guys! We put our passion for God as the first thing about ourselves for a reason – God is the most important person in our lives. God has taught us to always be confident in who we are and who He has created us to be. We have learned that the gifts God has specifically given us are unique and we should try to fit into His plan for our lives instead of everyone else’s plan. We trust Him with everything we have and this has truly changed our lives for the better!
- We are University of Kentucky Cheerleaders.
One of our biggest dreams EVER since we were little was to become University of Kentucky cheerleaders. We grew up watching the cheerleaders perform in Rupp Arena in front of 24,000 fans and from the moment we saw them, we knew that was what we wanted to do. The University of Kentucky is the NUMBER ONE cheerleading program in the world and has won 23 National Championships, more than any other school! Being a part of this team has truly changed our lives and is an absolute dream come true! Becoming a Kentucky cheerleader is one of the best things that has ever happened to us!
- We LOVE FOOD and eat super healthy.
We are both extremely healthy eaters (we could basically live off of grilled chicken and vegetables forever lol). We believe that the food we fuel our bodies with truly has an impact on how we feel. Eating healthy food is SO delicious and cooking healthy is very fun for us! We can’t wait to share what we eat in a day, talk about our favorite healthy foods, and give you guys tips on how to eat better on this blog! Although we primarily eat healthy foods, we love to incorporate the not-so-healthy foods as well. Nothing makes us happier than sweet potato fries and ice cream 🙂
- We have the most amazing, supportive family.
Family means everything to us! Our family is known as “The Brickey Family” and it consists of the both of us, our younger sister Riley (we get mistaken for triplets every time we are all three together), and our mom and dad. We are so lucky to be able to call our family our best friends. Our bond is unbreakable and one that we will truly cherish forever.
- We LOVE working out and being active.
Cheerleading has always allowed us to be super active all the time. We are constantly practicing almost every single day and cheering games every weekend. In addition to cheer practice, we also love to go to the gym! We have a true passion for working out. Running, circuit training, doing the stairmaster, you name it… we love it all! We can’t wait to share some of our favorite workouts on this blog!
- We are 5’1 girls trying to find cute clothes.
We are both very short, so trying to find cute and flattering clothes can be quite the struggle for us! We hope that this blog will help all the other shorties out there find the best petite clothing!
- We have extremely “Type A” personalities.
We are both extremely driven, focused, and determined in everything we set our minds to. We love checking things off of our to-do lists and we both hate wasting time. When we have a goal in mind we will do anything we can to achieve it! People can’t keep up with us (in conversation or on the sidewalk lol) because we like to be on the go and getting things done!
- We get asked if we are twins at least 5 times a day.
Although getting asked this question can be annoying at times, we absolutely LOVE being twins. It is something so unique and special. Having a twin is like having a guardian angel, partner in crime, and built-in best friend all in one. We are basically inseparable and people seriously CANNOT tell us apart! (Everyone just calls us “the Brickey twins” instead of Kennedy and Taylor).
- We LOVE to cook.
Cooking in the kitchen is something we love to do! Trying out healthy recipes and finding new ways to cook healthy food is one of our passions. We like to take the unhealthy (but delicious) foods and healthify them! By modifying ingredients and making simple swaps, we recreate new dishes that taste good and are lower-calorie! We can’t wait to share delicious recipes with you guys on this blog!
- We LOVE to travel.
One of our favorite things to do is travel! We love visiting different cities all over the world. Eating new foods, trying new things, and exploring new places is SO exciting for us! We love having an adventure anywhere we go! You can always count on us to be on Yelp finding the best spots in every place we travel!
We hope this post helps you all learn a little bit more about the both of us! We can’t wait to share more of our lives with you guys on this blog! Hope you are all having a great week! See you next time!
Double the love- Kennedy & Taylor
