25 Things You Didn't Know About Me

I'm kicking off the August Blogging Challenge with a classic things you didn't know about me blog post. Why? Mainly because I love reading these types of posts. Besides, I thought it would be fun to share some random-ish facts about myself. Hopefully you enjoy finding out some new facts about yours truly! Let’s get started, shall we?

The one show that I can watch again and again is Seinfeld. It's also one of the shows that I the most in daily life.

I was on the yearbook committee in high school. Yes, I was that nerd. I took photos and wrote.

I don't care what people say; a good vanilla bean ice cream is the ultimate flavour.

If I could live anywhere in the world it would be either Whitby, England or New Orleans.

My engagement ring and wedding band are the best gifts I have ever received because Alex came along with it.

My mom grew up in Bronx and I still can't understand why she ever moved to Florida. I feel more at home in NY than in Florida.

My favourite cocktail used to be a Ramos Gin Fizz. But now it's margarita on the rocks with a salted rim.

I love the smell of lavender, but cannot stand the way it tastes in baked goods or drinks.

I've never had braces, but always wanted them when I was younger, but I didn't need them.

I always wanted glasses too... and well, you can see what came of that.

I first met Alex when I was 14. We were just babies and neither one of us can remember why we broke up.

Before Olive, I had a cat named Keeks. As a child, I had both cats and dogs.

I drove to Texas by myself when I was eighteen. That was also the first time I went to New Orleans and feel in love with that city. As for Texas, I don't ever want to go back. Sorry if you're just finding this out, Mom. Womp womp.

The first time I was on a plane was when I was a year old - my mom & I were headed to New York to see my newborn cousin.

With that being said, I love flying, but loathe the idea of being on a large boat.

I initially went to college for interior design, but then transferred to another school and got a degree in liberal arts.

The first movie Alex & I saw together was Dark City - all the way back in 1998.

When I was younger my parents asked me if I wanted a little brother or sister. I got what I wanted. (I'm talking about you, Caitlin!)

In the past, Alex & I both didn't want children, but now we're set on having just one.

I like to think of awkward/random band names, for example, Crunchy Mustard. It's something that me, Alex and my sister have bonded over. "Hey everyone, we're Crunchy Mustard. We're gonna to play a couple songs for you tonight...". It's ridiculous, but fun.

I have seasonal summer depression. The heat makes me incredibly lethargic and quite sad. Megan & Alex like to joke that I'm a cat and just might fall asleep under a car in order to get some relief from the summer heat. Hahaha.

I like gloomy, rainy days and cooler weather - they are my jam. Yes, I know I live in the wrong state, but Florida does have some really amazing thunderstorms. It's the only redeeming quality.

I've been writing poetry and short stories since I was in middle school. I've been asked before if I'll ever want to publish them, but I'm unsure. When I was younger I was extremely against the idea, but now I don't think I'd be too opposed to it.

I'd rather spend money on good coffee than on mediocre food. Latte, French Press, chicory, pour overs - whatever it is, I'm down.

I don't enjoy shopping as much as I used to and I'm fine with that. However, I am not opposed to wasting a few hours in an antique shop or IKEA.

Alright, so know that you know more about me, I want to get to know you! I'd love it if you would share a few facts about yourself in the comments below...

Don't forget to stay tuned for tomorrow's blog post!
