You might not have known...


20 little facts about me?!

I thought with some new readers, I'd share 20 facts you might not know about me. I am not nearly as funny as my hubs, who wrote about me on this post, but I'll do my best.



1. I always have to have my toe nails painted. I honestly can't remember the last time they weren't painted. 

 2. When I get an idea in my head, I go with it. No matter how big or hard, I don't mess around.

3. I have been through my fair share of cars since I started driving. {I believe the count is at 10}

4. You will find me more often than not wearing workout gear. I love my yoga pants, but am still partial to my heels when I go out.

5. I have no shame in eating an entire bowl of popcorn. {It is my weakness!}

6. I had the same job from 16 to 24 working at Timber Lodge Steakhouse. I worked at 3 different locations, as I moved and had over 35 managers. {I had other jobs with that one, but consistently kept working at the steakhouse}

7. I pierced my own belly button at age 16 with a safety pin and an ice cube. My mom later found out and even though she was very disappointed and mad at me, I talked her into taking me to get it professionally re-done.

8. I might be slightly obsessed with scented things...candles, plug-ins, air fresheners. I can't stand a 'smelly' house. I have minimum of one candle in each room in my house.

9. I am a bad dog owner. I don't give my dog nearly enough attention. We had kids first, so our dog was never really our 'baby,' so he often gets the shaft. I hadn't taken him on a walk in over a month until I started running with him at night.

10. I have had one c-section and three natural births. Though I scheduled my second baby for a c-section, she decided to come early and I decided to go with a natural birth. {very wise choice on my part and much better recovery}

11.I am an OCD clean freak. My house is for the most part, very clean and if it isn't...it will drive me crazy. {This doesn't mean I expect my friends houses to be clean too}

12. I am terrible at taking pictures by myself. I either have a fake smile or just look completely awkward. My body doesn't 'pose' well. This is why you will very rarely, if ever, see a 'fashion' post of myself. {not that I have any style anyway}

13. I am not a huge sweets person, but if they are in front of me, I feel the need to eat them. {doesn't help with dieting...so I just keep them out of sight}

14. I hate ketchup...to the point where I don't even like the smell. It is mustard for this mama!

15. I rearrange things in my house, including furniture more than once a month. I love change and it makes me happy! {Though this bugs my hubs}

16. I would rather go in a store and shop all day for my kids than myself. I love when my kids look adorable and I don't like trying things on. {I wish someone would be my personal shopper}

17. I am very stubborn. I am very rarely wrong, but in the off chance that I am, I am terrible at admitting it.

18. I said I would never drive a mini-van, but I  would now never trade it in. With four kids, it is a necessity and I love the convenience. Don't get me wrong, when the kids are out of the house, I am back to a 'cooler' car, but for now, I love it!

19. If you read my blog you know this but, I am a terrible speller and horrible with punctuation. I often times have my mom call me telling me I misspelled something on my blog or used way too many commas. {oh well, at least I can admit it}


20. I can't stand Iphone group texts...getting a million text, some from people I don't even know, really bugs me. There should be a reply and reply all option. {Get on that Apple}


Did you learn something about me?!

Are we twins?? No, really??
I honestly could have written this list myself... From the painted toes, big ideas, cars (I'm only on 6 though!), workout gear, popcorn, pierced bellies, bad dog owner when babies arrived, my first c-section and possible VBAC, OCD clean freak, horrible at selfies, rearranging furniture, shopping for kids, stubborn...

Our only serious differs are spelling - I am anal with spelling and punctuation but I am also an English teacher :)
