Friday Fun Facts about Yours Truly

Maybe you care, maybe you don’t, but regardless, as I go about my day I realize just how weird I am. And I kinda wanted to share some of those weird things with you (among other, not so weird but more “interesting tidbits” about me)

  • -I cannot leave the house without my bed made (I have been late to many things due to having to make my bed…)
  • -I sleep with a 23 year old stuffed bunny named Pink (who is a Boy, by the way).
  • -The only thing that really scares me is putting my legs/feet straight down in a lake or ocean (even though I grew up with around water with a lake house. Still terrifies me).
  • -I have only lost 1 toenail from years of soccer and running (pretty impressive, huh!)
  • -I love watching New Adventures of Old Christine.
  • -I am addicted to Apples.
  • -I go to bed by 10pm every night.
  • -I grew up with no pets and feel completely robbed of this childhood love.
  • -I studied abroad twice in undergrad– Belgium and New Zealand. AWESOME!!
  • -I live in Running Shorts. Summer, Winter, school, grocery… whenever/wherever. Running Shorts.
  • -I would be happy if I never have to wear a bra again. I hate them.
  • -I have twice cut off my loooooong hair and donated to Locks of Love (every time I was an emotional wreck).
  • -My favorite authors are Nelson DeMille and Vince Flynn.
  • -I have been on over 20 cruises (my mom is a cruise travel agent).
  • -I have never had a boyfriend (they are so much work…should probably change my attitude about this though…).
  • -Favorite movies (in no order) Lord of the Rings, Gladiator, Titanic, Braveheart, Pride and Prejudice, Girls Just Want To Have Fun, Dirty Dancing, The Departed, Casino Royale, Skyfall, Gone With The Wind, Last of the Mohicans, Blood Diamond, Pirates of the Caribbean, Legends of the Fall….. and oh so many more.
  • -My favorite shoes are my Salmon trail running shoes.
  • -I get great joy in whole food grocery stores.
  • -Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.
  • -When I graduate from grad school I WILL move to Denver.
  • -I choose Mountains and skiing over Beach and laying-out.
  • -I want to own a small coffee shop.
  • -I love to cook.
  • -I love country music.
  • -I am 5’11” yet wear size 7.5 shoes.
  • -I drive stick shift– always have, always will.
  • -I love to camp/rock climb/hike/white water raft.
  • -Bonfires, Bonfires, BONFIRES!!
  • -It is rare to find me without a headband on (its because my hair sucks, and headbands cover it up).
  • -Gonna be honest…I should probably wash my hair much more often than I do.
  • -Early mornings are my favorite times of day.
  • -I have discovered a new love in Stair Races!
  • -Secretly want to be a CIA spy (maybe I already am?? I could never tell you for sure…).
  • -I am a Daddy’s girl for sure (Totally love my mom too, but I call my dad to chat probably 3 times a day.)
  • -Trampolines make me pee my pants. As does jump roping.

And that is all that came to my mind in my 30 sec “thought vomit” that just occurred.

Maybe you guys can relate to 1 or 2 ?? or none… that wouldn’t surprise me. There are some weird things on that list…

    I LOVE TRAMPOLINES. That is all.

    1. hahahaha ME TOO!!!!!!! Even though I pee my pants when on them… can’t stay away!!

  2. I wish I had studied abroad! So cool. Also extremely jealous of your 20 cruises, never been on one! I don’t know if I could donate my locks… I’d be traumatized. I only wash my hair twice a week, and I think that’s plenty ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Never too late to travel and see the world!! ((Belgium is highly underrated and is a hidden GEM if you ask me!!)) I was on an emotional roller-coaster after I cut my hair!!!! it is finally long enough to put in a braid again! yayyy and SO glad to hear that I am not the only one who only washes her hair “every so often”!!

  3. […] Showering. As I mentioned in my Fun Facts About Yours Truly post, I could stand to shower a bit more in my week. Well, it is amazing what a hot, steaming […]

  4. I just stumbled on your blog and somehow found this post and we are so alike!! I’m a daddy’s girl, I sleep with a 26 year old stuffed bunny named Toby and I literally almost pissed my pants last weekend when I jumped on the trampoline at my adult gymnastics class

    1. haha YAY! I love stuff animals– Pink is the best ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad I am not the only one!
      And I literally just laughed out loud reading about your peeing-trampoline issues too!
      We seriously are similar ๐Ÿ™‚
