500th Post + Get To Know Me!

Since this is my 500th post and I've recently hit and surpassed the 500 follower mark, I figured I should introduce myself to the new people, and provide a refresher for my long lasting, loyal readers!
(Anyone out there want to host a giveaway for my wonderful readers??)
If you're on or were on Facebook back in early 2009, there was this post going around called "My 25." Basically, you listed 25 random, interesting  facts about yourself that maybe not everyone already knew. Pretty similar to the whole "If You Really Knew Me" thing going on around blogs lately.
So here we go...with a few updated modifications..
1. To start out, I honestly don't even think I'm interesting enough to write 25 interesting facts about me.

2. Since my freshman year of college, I have had 20 different roommates, 8 different locations! And I would like to thank my parents for helping me move EVERY time!

3. When I was in kindergarten, I told my parents I wanted to work at Burger King when I grew up. And I'm still not 100% sure what I want to do, so there's always still a possibility! But hopefully not....

4. I like ALL kinds of music. And I do mean ALL. Pretty much to the point where I'm embarassed to put my Ipod on shuffle.

5. I've been told I look sweet and innocent....but I have a serious road rage problem. I try to act on my best behavior when I'm in the car with other people, but when I'm alone, I swear like a sailor, break check if someone's driving too close, etc.

6. If I want to make my parents and sister laugh, I break out my Carlton Banks dance from the Fresh Prince of Bel Air...but I REFUSE to do it for anyone else.

Since writing this, Cameron has been the only other person to see the Carlton dance.

7. In highschool, I was a pro at sneaking out of the house. I got caught red handed once, but told my parents it was the first time. I'm sure they knew I was lying though. Hi Mom!

8. I am obsessed with BIG dogs. If I could, I would own one of every kind..and probably one or two small ones as well. I've especially always wanted a Mastiff, so I could ride it around the yard like a horse.

9. Senior year of college, I won the "Night Owl" award from my sorority (while my parents were in attendance - I'm sure they were proud!), but you'd be surprised as to how much I love relaxing at home on the couch.

10. On that note, one of the reasons I like to go out so much is because I'm afraid that the night I stay in, something really exciting or important will happen!

11. My parents will be married for 30 33 years this coming April. If I am still madly in love with my husband (and he with me) after 30 years, like them, I will be the happiest girl the in world! Along with death and spiders, divorce is one of my biggest fears.
I wrote this 2 months after I met Cameron, not knowing where we would end up in our relationship. :)

12. I get my crazy, sarcastic sense of humor from my family. And I'm extremely proud of it.

13. I hate cigarettes, but love the smell of when they're first lit.

14. In highschool, I won the "Best Smile" senior superlative, but I criticize my smile in every picture. I strongly dislike my top lip, or lack thereof.

15. I LOVE being on/in any body of water, but am constantly paranoid about an animal brushing up against my leg/body.

16. As you are already aware, I am obsessed with PICKLES!!!!! Dill, not sweet. I will eat a whole jar and then drink the juice. I have had pickle martini's and will chase my tequila shots with pickle juice. Oh, and instead of celery in my bloody mary's, yep! - PICKLES!

17. I cannot stand to hear people smacking or chewing their food..along with people talking while eating and scraping their teeth on their untensils!!

18. I also can't stand when people use incorrect grammar and spelling. Especially to/too/two and there/they're/their.

19. My absolute favorite movie is Major Payne. I can recite every line and I think it's the funniest movie ever made.

20. I never had an absolute favorite singer, until I heard Will Hoge. When he got in a bad wreck last year and had to postpone his tour, I almost cried.

21. I get embarassed EXTREMELY easily. I'm sure it gets on my friends nerves. Don't talk so loud! Don't dance! Don't look! Please see photo example below from my 25th birthday when about 15 people were singing "Happy Birthday" to me in a restaurant.

22. I didn't get my ears pierced until I was 20 years old. Well I did when i was like 10, but they got infected right after so I had to let them close up. I got it done at a body piercing place that shoved one huge needle at a time in my ear, instead of a gun, because I didn't want to go to Claire's in the mall where people would watch me as they walked by. Refer to #21.

23. I'm mildly claustrophobic. I will freak out if my shirt is too tight on my arms or if someone hugs me really tightly for too long.

24. I think about my deceased relatives and friends more often than your average person. I can't help it, I miss them!!

25. I have been told WAY TOO MANY TIMES I sound like I'm crying, sleeping, or a baby when I talk normal. And to be honest, it kind of pisses me off!! I can't help I have a soft spoken voice!

Hope you enjoyed these little tidbits about me! If I missed anything that you'd like to know, ask away!


  1. I love big dogs too! The fiance and I have a mini Poodle and Chesapeake Bay Retriever. You need to check our giant Schnauzers, holy gorgeous dogs! We saw one at SEWE this year, and he looked so regal.

  2. you're the cutest with the cutest smile. so glad we share a love for pickles, tequila, the water, and (duh) online shopping. i can't stand crappy grammar and gum smacking. ick! happy weekend!

  3. I have road rage too! But no one has ever told me I look quiet and sweet. I made a pickle martini last weekend. Love me some pickles!

  4. Happy 500th post!
    I hope to share a pickle martini with you sometime :)

  5. I eat a whole jar of pickles too! and then drink the juice striaght afterward! it's so GOOD! everyone thinks I'm weird for this, so it's nice to find someone who does the same!!!!!(:

  6. I LOVE MAJOR PAYNE! So many people have forgotten that movie and I have worn my VHS out. I'm really annoying when I watch it because I love to recite the lines.

  7. I love Will Hoge and I didn't get my ears pierced until I was 20 years old too! How funny.

  8. Great post!

    Love your style and see you as such as good inspiration!!

    I'm an instant follower of you now :)

    Please feel free to check out my blog if you have the time



  9. Ok, this is an awesome post. I could comment on each and every one of these. First of all, the Burger King down the road from me is hiring...or maybe it's Taco Bell. I could have written #5 and #15 about myself, too. All of them are great!

  10. When I read this stuff, I'm reminded that we actually are sisters and are more alike sometimes than we think :/ haha

  11. I remember #21 like it was yesterday! Good times..
