In Case You Wondered

It has been awhile since I waxed narcissism on you all with a post all about me. So, here it goes … things you just need to know before continuing your day.

  • I love drinking water from the faucet during the winter. The freezing pipes make it extra cold!
  • Thick lotion is the only lotion worth wearing. Like this kind.
  • For the life of me I can’t hone my home style — boho, country, rustic, vintage. I want to change my curtains AGAIN. Don’t tell Dom. I obviously have curtain commitment issues.
  • Stores with awesome return policies will always have my heart.
  • My wedding ring doesn’t fit me anymore and I’m torn on whether or not to get it resized.
  • When I get hungry late at night I eat eggs – scrambled or hard boiled.
  • I’ve never dyed my hair. A few rounds of home highlights, but never a full head dye.
  • The small legal pads are my favorite. I make a daily to do list on them with a super fine ballpoint pen, also another favorite.
  • I dreamed of a minivan for 4 years and now I’m an official Swagger mom. And now I sing this in my head every time I load the car.
  • I sing this with new fervor too.
  • In actuality though, I can’t carry a tune in a bucket so don’t laugh if you happen upon me trying to singing.
  • I don’t drink soda.
  • I’ve become a library fiend – we go often and this whole year I’ve managed to keep my late fees under $1!
  • Mary Poppins is my favorite Disney character.
  • Dutch Bros coffee has better eggnog lattes than Starbucks.
  • Jemma and I share one favorite color – gold.
  • Essential oils have become my go to perfume – a blend of Bergamot, Grapefruit and Ylang Ylang are such a mood boost!
  • I’m worried my passport will expire before I travel internationally again :/
  • Vacuuming is my favorite chore. Dishes are not.
  • Doing less helps me to enjoy life more.

What’s a “secret” about you? Share something new in the comments!

P.S. Don’t forget the $150 giveaway! And, the perfect match for my vacuuming love thanks to a new sponsor :)

      Mine too! It is so much more legible with a fine point.

    Never dyed my hair either! And about me – I use shower time as a ‘let kids play and get a few things done’ time. They splash around in there while I scurry and do a few chores and then I finally join them. Our water bill may be a bit higher but it’s worth it.

    We go to the library a lot too. They have a big pirate ship that the kids can play in with Legos. It’s awesome!

      How awesome! I wish ours had something like that!
