Being Random

I had great intentions on doing several posts this week but just did not get around to it. I have been waiting all week to link up with Ashley at The Shine Project for her random facts posts.  I'm going to share 15 random things about myself that you might not know about me.

1. I had two weddings and the same groom for both!  Check out our story here.

2. As soon as my alarm goes off in the morning my brain starts going 100 miles an hour.

3. I do not like taking naps.  I took naps in college, but that is probably because I stayed up until the early morning hours.

4. I do not like balloons or popping balloons.  I get uneasy when I am in the same room with someone that has a balloon.

5. If you don't know me very well you might think I only have 1 brother, but I have two!  I have an older half brother.

6.  I started running a little over a year ago. I had never run before and now I love it.  I cant believe I waited till my early 30's to start running.  Thanks Jill for getting me started!

7. Candy Corn is my one sweet weakness. And of course I have already purchased my first bag for the season!  I love eating candy corn alone, but it is also VERY good on top of iced sugar cookies.

8. In high school I had a trampoline accident which resulted in loosing my two front teeth.  I had to go to my freshman year of college with a retainer and fake teeth attached to the front. I felt like I had a Chiclets smile, not good for the self-esteem but I made it through.  Fortunately I was able to get my implants put in during that first year of college.

9. I can NOT sing, just ask B.  I sing in the house and in the car and it drives him crazy.

10. I wash my face with sunflower oil.  If you haven't heard of the Oil Cleansing Method check it out!

11. I own every season of Friends and have almost every episode memorized word for word.  I first starting watching Friends in college with my roommates and we were hooked!

12. I grew up doing gymnastics and then started ballet when my joints could not handle anymore of the impact from gymnastics.  I would love to get back into ballet but would have to get in MUCH better shape.

13. I want a kitten but I think I'm too OCD to have one in our house.

14. My high school graduating class was only 4 people, including me.

15. I didn't eat much meat growing up. When I went to college I was basically forced to start eating meat due to not having many vegetarian options.
I would love hear a random fact or two about you. Please share in the comments!

Til' next time,


  1. okay, after i comment i am going to read the story behind your #1! I'm excited! :)

  2. Well, thank you for being the best running partner ever! I love it too! I want to know if you still have the bag of candy corn?!

  3. I had nearly forgotten about #8...the trampoline accident. I'm having flashbacks now. That was kind of scary! Glad you recovered from it and the damage wasn't worse than that!

  4. I knew most of these! You are a very interesting person! # 8 still makes me cringe!


I'm so glad you stopped by to leave a comment. Getting comments is like getting hugs from my readers, I love it!
