In light of me attempting to immerse myself in all things small-town-GA, I've been thinking a lot about my likes, dislikes, where I'll fit in, and if anyone will even want me as a part of their day-to-day world.
It may be narcissistic of me to think anyone cares, but I decided to compose a list of all things ME. So, here, my friends (new and old!), are some random tidbits you should know...
*I hate to cook, and am terrible in the kitchen (see last post, ha!). However, I love to bake... mostly because I like to eat any sort of uncooked batter/dough (helloooo salmonella) and also because every step is an exact measurement, which works much better for my Type-A personality.
*So I guess that was two-in-one since I threw in the little Type-A personality sidebar. But it's true, unfortunately. I can be pretty Type-A, OCD... though I do think I'm much more spontaneous and fun-loving than anyone believes!
*I kind of enjoy cleaning...
*And I LOVE grocery shopping. Unless I have my toddler in tow.
*And speaking of that toddler, I'm obsessed with her. She's pretty awesome. And because of the hard times T and I have faced during our losses and constant battle with secondary infertility over the past 15 months, I am even more wrapped up in my daughter.
*I like red wine, a lot. And beer, any beer, really. But not liquor. Well, except for margaritas... I looooove margaritas...
*I hate my feet.
*I think spending time with family and friends is just about as good as it gets.
*I fall asleep on the couch, every night, before we go to bed. It's almost like I HAVE to fall asleep on the couch before I'm ready to go to bed. My mom and sisters do, too... so blame it on my genes.
*I like to run, a lot. It's my mental stress-reliever. And also? I run because I like to eat, more than I like to run. (I would never be able to diet.)
*I find an immense amount of joy in doing things for other people. Any hour of any day.
*I love surprises!
*No matter how full I am, there is always room for dessert.
*I consider myself to be a new-ish Christian. Not that I haven't been a Christian my whole life, but I really and truly haven't explored Christianity, the bible, or my relationship with God until about seven years ago. I have a lot to learn and a loooong way to go.
*I leave lights on, accidentally, all the time, and it drives my husband crazy.
*I think baths are kinda gross. Unless there are bubbles and wine involved. Then I understand.
*I love to sing, but literally have one of the worst voices you have ever heard.
*Country music is my jam.
*I could waste an entire day and one of my husband's paychecks in Target.
*I enjoy long road trips, as long as I'm not driving.
*I love the earth, but I hate when public bathrooms have hand dryers instead of paper towels. Ain't nobody got time for that.
*I am a morning person, but am pretty much narcoleptic at night.
*Any sort of chips and dip is my weakness.
*And reality tv. I'm a sucker for some bad reality tv.
*I wish I were crafty, but I'd rather pay someone to DIY for me.
*I really, really, really like olives.
*I'm a worrier. One of my least favorite traits about myself!
*My hair used to be bleach blonde. Many moons and too many highlights ago.
*I think when I grow up I want to be a college professor.
*Flying in a plane scares me.
*No matter how tired I am, I can never take a nap because I can't turn my brain off!
*I love the beach!!
*If you haven't already figured it out, I'm a pretty open book, about anything and everything.
*And I love having this blog as a creative, selfish, therapeutic outlet. I'm impressed if you made it this far down my list of personal randoms!
Have a great week!!
