21 Things!

January 26, 2015

One of my favorite things bloggers do is tell their readers a little about them. Here’s why. For me, I spend 20 minutes a day (at least) reading my favorite blogs, and sometimes I feel like I really know the writer. So, it’s fun when they do a get-to-know me post because then I can be more of a stalker, I mean reader. So for all you readers out there, here are 21 random facts about me. 

21 Random Facts: 
  1. Henry, my dog, is my first love. Thank goodness he’s bionic and will never die. 
  2. Painting my nails is one of my favorite pastimes. I paint and repaint them about 3x a week. 
  3. I love planners. At one point in 2014, I had 3. Have no fear; I’ve narrowed it down to just 1 for 2015. 
  4. Cards are my favorite part of birthdays. A present without a card isn’t nearly as exciting to me. 
  5. I’ve never been skydiving, but it’s on my bucket list. 
  6. My favorite food is pizza. Pretty much any kind. Fancy or frozen, I love it all. 
  7. My secret dream job is to be a professional organizer. Don’t get that confused with cleaner/maid. I don’t want to pick up your dirty clothes; I want to organize your clean ones (and cabinets, kitchens and everything else). 
  8. I curl my hair every day. No, these golden curls are not natural. Neither is the golden part, anymore. Getting old sucks. 
  9. I still regularly watch the Disney Channel. 
  10. Chrissy Teigan is my favorite celeb. 
  11. I wear a size 9 shoe. 
  12. I overuse emojis in my texts. 
  13. I’ve lived in 5 states in 27 years. Is that a lot? It seems like a lot.
  14. I’ve never been to Africa; it’s on my bucket list. Those who’ve been…suggestions? 
  15. My favorite place in the whole world is Florence, Italy. I studied there in college. You all should go to Italy, right now, go! 
  16. I like almost all foods, except I don’t enjoy cold shrimp or canned salmon. 
  17. I have blue eyes, and in 7th grade I wore blue contacts to make them bluer. I was so cool. 
  18. I cry at most commercials
  19. I can't wink. 
  20. I love singing in the car. It's weird, I'm the next Mariah Carey, but when someones in the car with me, I'm suddenly tone-deaf, it's the weirdest thing. 
  21. I've never seen Forest Gump. 
#1. My Henry. I mean, just look that face. 
#13. That time I moved to Nebraska. State #5.
#15 - Florence, Italy. Stunning, right? 

Anything you want to know? Feel free to ask any questions! 


  1. We're basically soul sisters. I can't wink, my golden locks aren't natural anymore either, and I studied in Florence too. It's the most amazing place in the world!
