20 Things You Might Not Know About Me

20 Things You Might Not Know About Me

My new friend Sarah tagged me in the “20 Things You Might Not Know About Me” (sweet thing….because she said “one weekend at AWBU wasn’t enough time to get to know each other”  LOVE that!).  Since my life has been super boring and laid back as I recover from gallbladder surgery…I’m happy to play along.

The original blog tag started here at the Blacksburg Belle. I’m just answering her questions.

Question 1: How tall are you?

5’3”. Some days I feel normal height.  Some days I feel short.


Question 2: Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what?

I can fit my fist in my mouth.  It makes my face all red, and I get slobber everywhere (read: NOT cute) so I don’t do it often.

Question 3: What’s your biggest blog-related pet peeve?

That’s a good question. I would say people who anonymously comment.

Question 4: What’s your biggest non-blog related pet peeve?

When people leave an empty toilet paper roll.  Not cool.

Question 5: What’s your favorite song?

Look at You by Hanson.  It’s got a great beat, makes me want to dance, and I smile when I hear it.  I recently read that the music/movies you see and hear at age 10 have the biggest impact on your life.  Definitely true of Hanson.

Question 6: What’s your favorite Etsy shop that isn’t yours?

Secret Garden Notes – I’m loving her bullet jewelry. #redneckwoman

Question 7: What’s your favorite way to spend your free time when you’re alone?

Napping, if I’m honest.  I love to nap.

Question 8: What’s your favorite junk food?

Zaxby’s tater chips.  Yum.

Question 9: Do you have a pet or pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?

I have a shih tzu, Mikey.  He’s a handful, but we love him.

Question 10: What are your number one favorite nonfiction and fiction books?

Fiction: The Hunger Games

Nonfiction: Let’s Pretend this Never Happened by Jenny Lawson.  SO funny.

Question 11: What’s your favorite beauty product or tool?

Cover FX cream concealer.  This stuff would cover anything.

Question 12: When were you last embarrassed? What happened?

I embarass myself on a regular basis. ha! Probably most recently embarrassed when I had to buy stuff for a friend’s bachelorette party (read: I cleaned out the aisle at Walgreens) and the only checker was a male.  I searched the store for a woman stocking the shelves and begged her to open a register for me.  “I just can’t go to him,” I begged her.  She did.  Thank goodness.

Question 13: If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Stella Rosa Black red wine.

Question 14: What’s your favorite movie?

The Wizard of Oz.

Question 15: What were you in high school: prom queen, nerd, cheerleader, jock, valedictorian, band geek, loner, artist, prep?

I was a cool choir kid.  I was with the artsty (read: weird) music kids, but cool enough to make homecoming court. ha!

Question 16: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?

Probably Northwest AR or Tulsa, OK.  I like where I live, but I would personally prefer a bit bigger area.  My husband, on the other hand, likes more rural.  So we’ll probably stay where we are.

Question 17: PC or Mac?

I’m a PC girl.  Can’t imagine dishing out the cash for Mac.

Question 18: Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boy/girlfriend, spouse?

My husband bought me new dining room chairs when I was out of town on a work trip. It’s sort of sad that new furniture is romantic, huh?

Question 19: Favorite celebrity?

I want to be friends with Amy from Karmin.

Question 20: What blogger do you secretly want to be best friends with?

I wish I was real life friends with Rachel from Suburban Strut.  We would share closets. And she seems like she is so grounded and real.


Thanks to Sarah for tagging me.  She has some beautiful photography and heartfelt stories on her blog.  Check her out!


I tag…

My blog buddies turned real-life friends.





  1. I love the Hunger Games too!

  2. I’m gonna need you to get on the Mac train. 😉

  3. Haha! The “when people leave an empty toilet paper roll” one I can definitely agree with. So not cool. And I have heard of that Stella Rosa wine before and have been wanting to try it. Must be good!

  4. Ha! Number 2 had me laughing out loud. Almost woke my son from his nap!

    You’ve got a wicked good sense of humor!

    PS – It’s not a nap, it’s a horizontal life pause….I would know. I love a good life pause.
