20 Odd Things You Probably Don’t Know About Me
Let me introduce myself a little better by sharing some weird facts with you about myself. I realized that I haven’t really shared much about myself. 🙂 So without further adieu….
1. When I was little I was deathly afraid of Koosh Balls.
Seriously those little balls of terror kept me off the stairs better than a baby gate. Funny thing is, my youngest inherited my fear without us even saying a word about it to him. When he was only a few months old we handed him a small gum ball sized one and he screamed like he was being killed!
2. I am full blown left-handed.
I can’t do shit with my right hand. When I signed up for softball as a teen and accidentally bought a glove that went on my left hand because I thought, oh hey I am a lefty I need a lefty glove… I quickly realized I could NOT throw a ball with my right hand!
3. I cannot wrap presents to save my life.
My sister is OCD about present wrapping. I am the total opposite. My presents usually end up looking like a gigantic messy cat toy. It totally drives my sister nuts too.
4. I have always loved the thought of having twins.
When I was little, I looked like one of the Olsen twins. I always secretly wished I could have a twin. So now that I am older and have my own children, I just think it would be awesome to have twins.
To top it all off, I actually had a psychic tell me that I was supposed to have twins… I actually wrote the story about that here…
5. I have never broken a bone.
I guess I was super lucky. In school, I played as many sports as I could. I was a flyer for part of my cheerleading experience too and somehow managed to never break a bone.
6. I wish that the planet in the movie Avatar actually existed.
Seriously! Everything is so beautiful and glowing. Watching that movie made me sad that I coudn’t just get in a plane and fly there.
7. I wish I had more close friends.
When I was in grade school, I always had one or two friends that I spent ALL my time with. I don’t really have that anymore and sometimes I really miss it. Seems like when you have kids, people tend to distance themselves or you distance yourself from them. I’ve experienced my fair share of both.
8. I am not done having kids yet.
I have three beautiful kids and I am 27 years old. We have never been well off financially and we did things backwards (married + kids before college) but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Having more than two or three kids seems like a disaster to most people so I usually feel weird admitting that I want more. But I am starting to be more confident in myself and my feelings, so there it is.
9. If I had the money, the first thing I would do for myself is fix my teeth.
I was never allowed to get my teeth fixed when I was growing up, because I “drank too much soda” so it wouldn’t have been worth it because my teeth were going to fall out anyways.
I had minor crowding so my front teeth are crooked and now I have a filling in my front tooth that fell out. I hate even smiling because I feel super self-conscious when I do.
10. My favorite physical feature on my body is my feet.
So many people have foot fears. I feel like I have pretty nice feet. I hate wearing shoes and I think it’s made them stronger and prettier. Plus I got my first and only tattoo so far on the top of my foot.
11. I have a heart-shaped uterus.
I have always had a hard time with my deliveries because my babies were all posterior. No one could really ever figure out why until I had my third baby. The nurse was absolutely amazing and she found out that I have a heart-shaped uterus. This only happens in 5% of women and she explained that probably every one of my kids in the future will be born posterior too. But I carry them all “in my heart.” So I think that’s pretty cool.
12. My absolute favorite pets are ferrets.
We have two girls right now; Nilla and Cocoa. They’re so spunky and smart. We all love to watch them bounce around and make their adorable little barks. They are small and you can cage them if you’re afraid to leave them free roam. No need to take them out because they can be litter trained. They’re super smart too so you can train them to do tricks!
13. I’ve always wanted to go to California.
I love the scenery and I would love to just travel the entire state. Driving down the coast and seeing all the sights is my idea of the perfect vacation.
14. I have a thing for blue eyes.
There is just something so gorgeous about piercing blue eyes. My husband has them and so does our youngest son. My all time favorite actor, Travis Fimmel (Vikings) has them too. I just can’t get enough!
15. I have a tremendous fear of vomit.
It’s probably something I should seek help for. It affects me way more than it probably should. I have full blown panic attacks whenever anyone even mentions being sick. If there is a chance I could throw up I won’t eat until I find out that I am okay.
16. If I could live outside barefoot in warm weather year round, I would in a heart beat.
There is something just so relaxing and invigorating about walking in nature barefoot. I totally am hippie in the sense that you can almost feel energy connecting you to the Earth. I live for the time of year that the ground is warm enough to spend the day barefoot. Being cooped up inside all winter makes me so stir crazy.
17. I’m afraid of being “stuck” in life.
I always have felt like when life starts going well, something happens and kicks you down. We’ve struggled financially for years and haven’t had much success with my husband working in Corporate America. We’ve always been low income.
All I want is to build a business that can support our whole family so we do not have to rely on “the bigger man.”
18. I always overthink everything.
This is one of my biggest flaws. I tend to worry what people think of me, my family, my work.. too much. It’s kept me from really trying as hard as I can to reach my goals.
I am slowly working on my self-esteem and overthinking issues. This year my one goal is to Never Give Up!
19. Despite having a fear of heights, I really enjoyed flying in an airplane.
The first and only plane trip I went on was from Pennsylvania to Chicago when I was around 17 years old. I was flying with my boyfriend at the time’s grandmother and father. It was terrifying and awesome at the same time. I was so surprised that when you are in a huge jet at 36,000 feet, you don’t even feel like you’re moving. Luckily, we didn’t hit any turbulence or I probably wouldn’t be including this right now.
20. I genuinely hope that my readers enjoy my blog.
I want to make a difference. Every blog post that I write, aims to help in some way. I like to write about products we use that are awesome, recipes that my family enjoys, marriage advice (Because I have heard so many times from friends that my marriage is inspiration) and information about cyber school.
I want to make more connections in the blogging world so feel free to email me or comment on my blog. 🙂 Hope you enjoyed!
