Things you Should Know if we’re BFFs

Hi friends! I always like getting to know the people behind the blogs I read, so today I thought I’d share some random things about me.

  1. I am an only child and so is my husband (sadness that I’ll never be an auntie!)
  2. I grew up on a dairy farm (but I’ve never milked a cow).
  3. I was on the swim team from 2nd grade through high school and I still love the smell of chlorine and being in the water.
  4. My Man grew up in the same hometown as I did but we didn’t meet until after college because we went to different schools.
  5. I am a Delta Gamma and I love anchors. I met some of my best girlfriends through DG.
  6. I love to read and if I’m really into it, I will stay up till 4am on a ‘school night’ just to finish the book. My fav book of recent years is Water for Elephants, but I also love my YA fluff books too!
  7. I cook in spurts. In one day I’ll have something in the crock pot, bake something else and cook something different for dinner. Then I won’t cook anything for a few days.
  8. I’ve been watching a lot of Walking Dead and Revolution lately and now have the urge to be able to do things without electricity/going to stores (ie learn to make things from scratch, grow a garden, etc.).
  9. I rarely drink anymore because (a) I’d rather eat my calories for dessert and (b) I get crazy hangovers these days. I still love me a glass of wine every once in a while though.
  10. When I was little I wanted to be an illustrator for children’s books.
  11. I will not wear orange or yellow. I don’t like orange and yellow does not like me.
  12. I don’t wear heels anymore. A few years ago I had very painful heel spur type things (boy do I sound like an old lady) and I couldn’t wear heels, so I just stopped altogether even though I don’t have the heel problems. I will wear boots with heels though.Β Plus, I walk super fast (especially for someone who’s only 5’3″) and heels slow my roll. I get a little road rage when people walk too slow.
  13. Long nails gross. me. out. Mine are clipped short at all times.
  14. I love makeup and am known to do my friends makeup for them. All 3 weddings I’ve been in I’ve done the bride’s makeup.
  15. I love shopping at the Loft.
  16. I’m an introvert. I may come across as shy or quiet at first or in large groups, but once you get to know me, I’m not so bad. :)
  17. I love Cherry Coke Zero, Mixed Berry Diet Green Tea and Chai Tea Lattes.
  18. I lived in Denver for 3 years after college and I miss it and my Denver besties like crazy! One thing I really miss is being able to explore different trails and Rocky Mountain National Park. It’s so beautiful there!
  19. I don’t like stupid-funny movies (think Will Ferrell type). My Man says I must not like to laugh. I’m more of a rom-com, drama, or action movie type of girl.
  20. I have the worst sweet tooth. I love chocolate, froyo, and cookie dough and my fav sweet is warm chocolate chip cookies.

    Sounds like you have a budding career as a make-up artist!! I also agree on the stupid-funny comedies – don’t like them and don’t really get them!

      I’m glad I’m not the only one who doesn’t like those movies! Thanks for stopping by Biana!

    I can’t do makeup to save my life! I so wish I could. I know just enough to get by. And I never pass up a sweet!

      Whitney – That’s probably for the best! The more I know about makeup, the more money I spend! It’s dangerous. :) Thanks for stopping by!
