25 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Me

September 8, 2017

Here’s to a quarter of a century. My birthday is one of my favorite days of the year, its a time where I reflect back on the previous year and see how far I’ve grown. I have to say year 24 was the best one yet! I thought it might be fun to round up 25 facts that define me.

 

 

1. I am a true Virgo.
2. I always have to have my nails painted. I hate the look of unpainted nails and toenails.
3. I would choose appetizers over dessert any day.
4. I love cooking and baking, I am always trying new recipes.
5. I have a full blown obsession with Pinterest. I am on there everyday and have well over 10k pins.
6. I love board games, they are my guilty pleasure.
7. My favorite food is pizza, I could eat it everyday and never get sick of it.
8. I love plants, my favorite are fiddle leaf figs, but I do not have a green thumb. At all.
9. I don’t like my food touching on my plate. I like to eat everything separately and one at a time.
10. I strongly believe that a good candle can transform your whole house.
11. My two favorite smells in the world are the beach and lemon.
12. My favorite movie is A Cinderella Story.
13. I am a workaholic. I have a full time job, two part time jobs as well as my blog.
14. I am super competitive, I hate loosing.
15. My go-to coffee order is quad-venti caramel macchiato upside down. Hot or iced.
16. I love white marble. I dream of someday having an all white kitchen with white marble counters.
17. My favorite outfit is a great pair of denim and a navy and white striped top.
18. I have a weakness for gummy bears, the champagne ones are my favorite.
19. I am notorious for falling asleep every time I watch TV.
20. For the shows I have made it through, Gossip Girl, Fixer Upper, Royal Pains and Master of None have been my favorites.
21. I read a lot, I love beach reads and physiological thrillers. I am always on the hunt for my next great book.
22. I am always freezing cold. I carry a scarf or sweater in my bag wherever I go.
23. My go-to cocktail at a bar is gin & tonic with lime. Or a glass of champagne.
24. Lists are my favorite, I make lists for everything.
25. I am marrying the love of my life in a little over a year. And I am SO. EXCITED.

 

Do you relate to any of these fun facts? Do any of them surprise you?

    Hahaha I hate when my food touches too! In the last year and a half I’ve really become obsessed with keeping my nails painted. I have a huge Essie collection now!

    If it’s later in the evening, I often fall asleep while watching tv too. My husband doesn’t get home from work until around 10pm, so if I try to stay up, eat dinner, and watch tv with him, I usually end up a goner on the couch. lol
