13 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Me

Every new blog needs an introduction, right. Assuming you have read my about page you may already know a few things about me – my kids, the hubs, my obsession with coffee and cereal.

If you haven’t read it, check it out to find out more about me and my family!

Here are 13 things you probably didn’t know…

one | i have an outrageous fear of heights

It’s ridiculous, really. My son has the same fear. During our last vacation, we decided as a family to “do brave things.” Our first task was to ride a huge ferris wheel. Long story short, I completely freaked and my 5-year-old son comforted me instead of me comforting him.

two | i totally judge books by their covers

That’s usually how I pick a new book. First, by their cover. Then I read the synopsis to see if I think I’d like it. A pretty cover gets me every.single.time.

three | i flipped my first car

My 1992 seafoam green Ford Probe. I loved, loved, loved, that car. Long story short, I overcorrected and ended up like this. No injuries other than my heart. It was broken.

four | when I was a kid I wanted to be an interior decorator

And live in NYC. Big dreams for a small town girl. I’m so glad my life took a different direction. There is no way you’d get me to live in the city now.

five | i have a bachelor of business degree from murray state university

I may be a stay at home mom now, but that wasn’t always my plan. After my interior decorator plans changed, I dreamed of owning a bookstore after I graduated. That never happened either. Maybe someday…

six | i am an avid list maker

So much, in fact, that I started making a list of lists to make. Seriously. Such a nerd, I know.

seven | my husband and i met on match.com

The pic below is of us on our 2nd date. Almost 11 years ago we matched and the rest is history. This year we celebrated (and by celebrated I mean, said “happy anniversary” to each other) 9 years of marriage! I couldn’t love this man any more if I tried.

eight | i am left handed

Other than smearing my hand through ink while writing and those pesky right-handed desks, I have never had an issue being a lefty. I secretly love being a part of a super small (10% of people) population. We are, in fact, more likely to be genuses, genuises, geniuses!

nine | i hate wearing socks

It’s a rare day (even in the winter) that you see me wearing a pair of socks. Hot feet turn me into a rage monster!

ten | i almost never stray away from favorite dishes at a restaurant

When I do decide to try something new, it always turns out badly. Does that happen to you too?

eleven | my room as a teenager was amazing!

Black and white walls. Magazine cutouts pasted to said walls. And friends signatures. Glow in the dark stars. My parents didn’t mind. I’m not sure that I could be so cool with it. Man, if I could spend one more night in that room!

The bedroom walls of a teenage girl on the 90's. Black and white, magazine cutouts, friends signatures, and glow in the dark stars on the ceiling

twelve | i love, love, love michael jackson

Go ahead. Snicker, if you must. I have loved him since my dad brought home the Thriller album when I was 2 years old. Not so fun fact: MJJ died 2 days before my wedding. I cried, and cried, and cried.

thirteen | i want to live near the beach

I swear I was a fish in another life. The water soothes my soul. The sand and sun make me happy.  I would be perfectly content spending every day of my life sitting by the ocean and reading a good book.

After reading this, did you find that we have anything in common? Have you flipped a car too? Are you a southpaw? What about list making?

I’d love to hear from you in the comments!
