Things You Don't Know About Me

Wow, I haven't shared one of these about me posts since last October! With that being said, it's about time I shared a little more about myself (especially for any new followers I may have acquired since then). These posts are always fun to write!

I've shaved my arms since middle school.
Yes, you read that right. I shave my arms. It's weird, I know. My best friend and I started doing this in middle school for whatever reason (I guess we thought we were cool or something) haha.

Lifetime + Hallmark movies are my guilty pleasures.
Highly doubt I'm the only one who likes to indulge in a dramatic Lifetime or cheesy Hallmark movie from time to time whenever possible. The stories create some kind of black hole of emotion and I get sucked in quickly.

Raw tomatoes basically make me gag.
I'm completely fine eating tomato soup, tomato sauce, roasted or sun-dried tomatoes, and ketchup. It's the gross texture that gets me when they're straight up raw (so slimy), and the taste throws me off too. Although, I've been able to eat them on sandwiches and in wraps from time to time as I've gotten older. I honestly wish I liked them, but I don't see that happening.

I made my first C when I was in 5th grade and it devastated me.
Seriously. Up until that point, I had been an A+ / occasional B student. I made the Principal's Honor Roll more times than I can remember. When I saw a C on my report card, I cried. That's probably the moment I stopped trying to succeed in school. Ha!

My favorite colors are purple, blue + green.
As if this wasn't obvious enough with my longstanding choice of colors used in my blog design. Plum purples, bright blues + lively light greens make me all kinds of happy. It's actually kinda strange that I developed a love for purple since I used to hate it while I was growing up. It always reminded me of that nasty grape Dimetapp or Motrin I'd have to take when I was sick.

I've been to 8 states and 2 countries other than my own.
Over the years, I've traveled to Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey + New York. I've also been on a cruise to Grand Cayman and Cozumel, Mexico with my hubby. There are still many places I'd love to visit!

  1. I am the same way about tomatoes! Well, except I pretty much don't like them in any form. I'm okay with spaghetti sauce but that's pretty much it!
