Things you should know about me

In honor of my 30th birthday I complied a list of 30 things you should know about me if we are going to be friends:
1. I love to read and am usually reading about 10 books at once
2. I prefer more creamer in my coffee than actual coffee
3. I tend to pee when I'm on the phone with people. This is usually due to the fact that I make all my calls during nap time and therefore have to multi task until the kids wake up. I also have a problem of never flushing the toilet
4. I met Channing Tatum. One of the best days ever
5. I never wear socks. Even when working out and wearing tennis shoes
6. I love going to the beach and could spend all day swimming
7. My husband and I met, got engaged and married in a 5 month time period
8. I never wanted to be a stay at home mom, now I can't imagine anything else
9. I wish life was like an episode of glee, everyone walking around singing and dancing all the time
10. I refuse to iron. Not sure I even know how to use one
11. I hate folding and putting away laundry. Usually all my clean laundry sits piled in baskets in my bedroom or laundry room. It takes forever for me to actually sit and fold all those clothes
12. I love vacuuming and cleaning the bathroom. Those are my two favorite chores.
13. I hate making the bed and can't fold fold a fitted sheet.
14. I am a horrible artist. My stick people barely look like stick people
15. Before kids I didn't care what I spent on clothes. I bought an outfit for anything and everything. Now I can't see spending more than 30 bucks on a shirt or dress. As much as I love Antropologie, Jcrew and urban outfitters I can't justify spending that much on one item. I have 2 kids in diapers! So my kids are better dressed than I am
16. The Walking Dead gives me major anxiety.
17. I get through grocery shopping with two kids by feeding them a banana from the produce section or opening up a package of goldfish. Yes, I'm that person
18. I love the smell of bleach
19. I used to dye my hair platinum blonde, I've since learned a more natural color suits me best
20. I live in flip flops and maxi dresses
21. I dislike eating breakfast and am horrible at making pancakes
22. I am a very random person from the music I like to tv shows I watch. etc. I'm all over the place
23. I can be very blunt and honest which can create some foot in mouth moments but I think honesty is one of the best things you can offer people. Although some times I could work on my delivery!
24. Since becoming a mom I cry at pretty much everything.
25. I hate the dark. I can easily fall asleep with all the lights on and the tv blaring but put me in my dark bedroom and I'll be awake for hours
26. I used to be a dancer and always dreamed of being a ballerina
27. I finally have long hair and it ends up in a ponytail halfway through the day
28. I love baked potatoes. I never turn one down
29. I'm a people person and like being around friends but I also like staying at home with the kids and just hanging out
30. My husband and kids mean the world to me!
And that's it! Your turn. Let me get to know you. Write your own post or link up in the comments


  1. I refuse to iron too!! It's such a tedious and annoying chore lol.

  2. meeting channing tatum... LUCKY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    i also dont flush all of the time (when at home) bad bad habit! but we are on septic so it's not the WORST this ever ;)

  3. Love this! And YOU MET CHANNING TATUM?!?!?! aka my boyfriend!! Is he as nice as I hope he is?

  4. I don't even own an iron haha!

    I'm not a mom, but I was the same way about clothes. I would buy things just because. Now, I shop at Goodwill because I can find Gap, J Crew, and Ann Taylor for $3 and $5. If I do pay "full price" for something it has to be under $25. If it is over, I really have to debate about it. I've become really thrifty over the past year and this year.

    I used to be a dancer too!
