31 1/2 Facts About Me


It has been years since I shared an about me round up and seeing that today is my half birthday (oh yes, we totally celebrate those around here!) I figured, why not?

Here’s to thirty one and a half! Enjoy this list of random facts about yours truly!

  1. Cookies are my weakness. Especially these … worth every step!
  2. I’ve been dabbling in watercolors and want to do more of it. I also want to try my hand at embroidery.
  3. If I ever have another little boy, I would name him Whitaker and call him Whit. Isn’t that the sweetest?
  4. I’m not a pet person, but someday I bet my kids will talk me into one. Probably a rabbit.
  5. Reading is definitely my favorite pastime. 
  6. I bought legit hiking boots because we’ve been going out more and more and mama’s ankles need some support.
  7. A chiropractic adjustment can help just about everything.
  8. I’ve been to Disneyland 9 times and could easily make it an annual trip. I just love it! Next trip though is hopefully going to be Walt Disney World.
  9. There are currently over 18,000 photos on my phone. I don’t even know where to start managing that.
  10. I’m dreaming of a Sprinter van … don’t tell Dom!
  11. I only wash my hair every 5-6 days. 
  12. I only wear make-up 1-2 days a week. And since turning 30 I’ve started caring for my skin WAY more. Currently loving the Rodan+Fields <<< my sis can help you find what products are best for you!
  13. I have the joy of plucking awful little whiskers from my chin every few days. Why?!?
  14.  I love vacuuming. Can deal with dishes. Hate laundry.
  15. Onions are one of my favorite foods. But don’t worry, I also really like Orbit Bubblemint gum :)
  16. I have officially kept a house plant alive for a whole year! A sansevieria.
  17. Manatees are my favorite animal. Hoping to see one in real life for the first time when we visit Epcot!
  18. I’ve been pregnant or nursing (or both) for 7 1/2 years. 
  19. I only drink decaf. Caffeine makes me crazy.
  20. I’m really loving homeschooling and even though I’ve always said that I’ll take it year by year kid by kid, I hope we make it through high school.
  21. Black and white photos are my favorite.
  22. I almost always go to bed after midnight.
  23. But on that note ^^^ I also try to nap every day.
  24. I desperately need to downsize my closet but it’s so hard when I’m in between sizes. Also considering overalls. Basically I’m in a fashion crisis.
  25. I can’t sing, but love to. Bring on the show tunes!
  26. My wedding ring doesn’t fit right now so I’ve happily settled with an Enso ring. Honestly might keep it for a long time. It’s so comfortable!
  27. Before kids, I didn’t eat red meat. Hated it. But pregnancy made me crave burgers and now I swoon for a medium rare steak oscar. When they say motherhood changes you, I never imagined it would be stuff like this!
  28. I make lists all the live long day. I just can’t go digital. I also can’t stop buying CDs. Like, I know they’re going to be obsolete someday, but I’m just a tangible person, ok?
  29. I love the beach as much as I love the ocean. I can do without the city.
  30. My two best friends are not on Facebook and only one of them is on Instagram. Neither probably know what Twitter is or how it works. I think they’re on to something …
  31. Mondays are my favorite day of the week.

And my 1/2 fact … I totally still feel like I’m 15. Which makes life weird sometimes because I’m way closer to 40 than I am to 15.

    I stumbled on your writing in the one email I have opened from “What to expect…” since my daughter was born. (that was 14 months ago) I loved the post about breastfeeding a toddler because I can totally relate to your rationale and the I saw your name….then the name of your blog…then this post. We might be almost the same person. Anyway, keep being you. You are amazing!
