18 Things About Me for 2018

I was going back through some really old blog posts and realized that I haven’t shared an about me post in a really long time. Of course, you could read the About Me page…

but if you’re curious to know what 18 additional facts I’ve managed to come up with about myself, read on…

1. I’ve had the same cell phone number since 2002. Which was my junior year of high school. 😳

2. Part of the reason why I started this blog is because I love to write. I finally decided to start a bucket list goal and write a novel. It’s massive (like 100,000+ words) and not even finished yet. The story is based in Bethany Beach, DE as it’s one of my favorite places ever.

3. After the cruise we went on last March, Tom and I decided if we ever win the lottery, we’re buying an island in Belize. It’s absolutely gorgeous there and I loved every second of it. I’m already planning how to get back (sans lottery ticket).

4. Frozen fruit, particularly cherries, are one of my favorite snacks/desserts.

5. I hoard mini chocolate chips because sometimes they can be hard to find in stores and I like them better than fulled sized chocolate chips.

6. I hate driving, especially if it’s somewhere I’m not familiar with.

7. I had collected all but 4 of the 209 total Baby-Sitters Club book series before they accidentally got wet and destroyed.

8. I don’t have a natural hair color. As a kid it ranged from orange to auburn, then it started to grow our strawberry blonde. Now it grows 2 inches of light brown roots before it switches to a dark red.

9. I’m allergic to nearly everything. For an allergy test, they prick your arm with 20 potential allergens. I reacted to 19…

10. I thought I would find sour beers disgusting, but I actually love them. Like more than regular beer.

11. I work with all guys and I actually love it. Probably because I have my own bathroom.
12. I’ve always been someone who kept a journal, but in 2015 I switched to a bullet journal and I feel much more organized. Now, if I could only get rid of my sticky note habit. (Even if my journal is with me, I tend to write things down on sticky notes first.)
13. I am terrible about seeing movies. I don’t like going to the theater so I tell myself I’ll watch it when it comes to Netflix. If I’m lucky, its 2-3 years later before I remember it again.
14. My husband convinced me we should buy this house because he’d give me an 8 foot by 8 foot pantry wall. Confession: I probably could have went with deeper shelves, there’s more stuff I’d like to keep on it.
15. I didn’t know the way my brain does addition and subtraction is what’s considered common core. Or that it wasn’t usual. (To add 58 + 24 I would add 58 + 20 = 78, then 78 + 4 = 82)
16. I keep an inventory of what is in my freezer and deep freezer so I don’t end up with 5 packages of frozen burger rolls or 20 chicken breasts and no ground beef.
17. We’re seriously thinking about getting another cat for Itty so she has someone to play with. I have a feeling this will backfire and I’ll end up with 3 total cats that all want my attention separate from each other.
18. I have an Instant Pot that I want to use for dinners, but I end up only ever using it to make hard-boiled eggs or spaghetti/butternut squash.

Did anything shock you? Are we similar? Fill me in on you. I’d love to know more about my readers!
