If you really knew me...

I have been really enjoying reading these on other people's blogs, so I thought I would do it myself. I was having a hard time coming up with things about myself that you wouldn't know from reading my blog, so I asked Travis for some ideas. He said "Something about the Spice Girls? Your love of Santa?" Ha! Here is what I came up with:

I get asked if my glasses are real all the time, and they are. I'm extremely near-sighted, and have worn glasses since I was 7 years old. I can't decide if I should be insulted by people thinking I wear fashion glasses. 

I am a fast talker. Customers at work ask me where I'm from a lot, and when I tell them I was born and raised in Tennessee they are surprised.  The worst thing you can say to me is that sometimes you don't understand what I'm saying, and you just laugh so I think you heard it. It really hurts my feelings. 

When I was a kid my mom didn't let us help clean the house (which I loved then) so I am helpless when it comes to cleaning the house now. I really feel clueless when it is time to scrub the bathroom/mop the hardwood floors and usually get Travis to do it. We both have a high tolerance for mess, so our house is more often than not a wreck. 

All the excitement on the internet about shark week makes me nervous. I am terrified of sharks. Seeing one on tv, especially one JUMPING out of the water makes my stomach hurt. The movie Jaws is really scary to me. Just writing this has given me chills. And yes, I know it is a ridiculous fear.

You probably CAN tell this by reading my blog, but I am really obsessive. I can't ever just like something, I get obsessed with it. This goes for musicians, tv shows, movies, collections, pretty much everything. If I find a new show that I like, I will watch it non stop until I finish the whole series. 

I love singing more than almost anything else. Especially pop songs, ballads are my favorite. I have a good memory for song lyrics and love singing cheesy 90's hits when they come on at work. I feel better going in to work if I can belt out something on the way. Currently I've been listening to Beyonce's newest album on the way in, but Michael Jackson, Queen, and Weezer are in heavy rotation. I have a karaoke machine and sometimes I get it out and sing by myself. We had karaoke at our rehearsal dinner too. 

Sometimes I feel like I am the most self conscious person on Earth. I wish I could be one of those people who didn't care what other people thought about them, but I haven't been able to get there yet. 

Uhhh, that is all I can think of. Did you do one of these? Leave me a link! 


  1. Sooooo what's the spice girls thingy?

  2. Haha I don't even know why he said tat. I ha w two spice girl CDs from middle school that I listen to sometimes, and I like spice world but it isn't some big obsession. I'm surprised he didn't mention the huge box of backstreet boys stuff I can't bring myself to throw away.

  3. Aww your fear of sharks/jaws. Well, for you I hope shark week goes by fast!

  4. Um weird I was just going to confess my bsb obsession, errr of course from the past. That's all I'd like to say on the matter. Haha.

  5. I get you on the sharks! When I was 5 I accidentally saw Jaws at the drive in (I was supposed to be sleeping in the back of the van, but I peeked) & stopped taking baths or swimming in any body of water (even pools) that wasn't our local creek. I also couldn't read nature books with whole pages of underwater photos of sharks, it made me achey to have to touch the page while turning it. Not an ridiculous fear at ALL!

  6. this is cool! I'm with you on the pop songs and obsessing over things (just saw one episode of sherlock - now have to go buy both series on DVD so I can watch them asap). I sometimes wonder if other people are still self-conscious on the internet haha. I am morbidly so!

  7. I love these kind of posts, it's so cool to get to know the person behind the blog. I am fairly obsessive myself, I can relate :)

    What Lola Wants

  8. You're awesome. Can relate to the car singing too! I blogged mine :)

  9. I am stealing 2 things from this blog entry: The entry itself and the concept of having Kareoke at my rehearsal dinner someday. Doing that as well.

  10. Cutie! Your mom didn't let you clean? You lucky gal... and not so lucky. Teehee ;)

  11. people ask me if my glasses are "real" all of the time. ugh. hate that.

  12. hey girl! i love these kind of personal entries. (not that i don't love all your photos but ya know!) people tell me i talk too fast all the time and i HATE it. mostly because it makes me feel really self conscious.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a comment!
