33 Things You May Not Know About Me

We have so many first happening here lately!

I've been 33 for a month now & Benjamin starts zoo school in a few short weeks. Mama is getting some solo time (hallelujah!) & he is beyond excited to go learn about everything, especially animals! In honor of his excitement of learning & new readers, I have compiled a list of 33 things that you may or may not already know about me.

Who doesn't love a good get to know the author post?

1. I'm lactose intolerant. However, you'll see cheese is like my best friend, especially in Mexican food, so I medicate heavily to indulge when I need to.

2. I'm left handed, but consider myself ambidextrous. Writing & throwing are left, but most everything else is right.

3. While in high school, I lived "homeless" for a weekend. It was humbling, hot, cold & wet.

4. I'm two classes short of graduating from college. I know, I know. And currently, I have no desire to finish it.

5. I don't necessarily have a favorite color. Its so hard to choose, but orange orange & yellow will never be on the list.

6. With the exception of working in an orphanage in Mexico just across the border, I have never been outside of the Continental United States. I really hope that changes soon.

7. Celery & raw onion are absolutely repulsive to me. It's not happening, don't try to convince me.

8. I worry about everything.

9. I use to be extremely self conscious about my freckles & fair skin. Now, they are one of my most favorites parts of me.

10. We are sober. We haven't had a drink since July 2016 & it's been one of the best decisions ever. And for me personally, I'm much happier with a sweet tea or dirty Dr. Pepper & that's even a rarity as I'm ice water & unsweet tea girl anymore.

11. I could my count reliable friends on one hand & I am completely okay with that. Years, heck even months ago, I would be upset by this, but now, I've learned its quality, not quantity.

12. My favorite movie of all time is Steel Magnolias & TV show is Gilmore Girls.

13. We have three dogs, three cats & a fish. It's a zoo, seriously.

14. My favorite time of year starts October 1. Christmas is my absolute favorite, but October 1 kicks off fall & all the reasons for pumpkins & plaid.

15. Until I met Damon, I really had no idea how football worked. Yep, Texan right here.

16. I love office supplies like girls love shoes and makeup.

17. Curtains being even slightly open when it's dark outside gives me the heebie jeebies. Thanks Criminal Minds.

18. I've never ridden an actual horse.

19. Fresh cut grass may be one of my favorite smells ever.

20. I lived in Corpus Christi for almost 2 years and after moving back to DFW, I went through this period of hating seafood. Glad that's over.

21. For me, laundry is the worst chore ever.

22. Benjamin was a total surprise. Before him, I was against having children.

23. Spontaneity is one of my favorite things in life.

24. I daydream quite often.

25. I love trashy reality TV.

26. I get carded for everything. I didn't realize they card for sharpies in some stores. These kids are getting way too smart or desperate; not sure which.

27. I don't care what's on the brand tag. If I love it, I buy it. No shame in my game.

28. I still don't fully understand Star Wars.

29. I always, always wanted to be on Supermarket Sweep as a kid. They really need to reinvent that show.

30. I can't whistle.

31. Painting my nails makes me feel fancy & like I've got my mess together.

32. When in college, I discovered Bingo Halls. It was mine (& my roommates) thing. I've not played in years, but I live for the day that I play again.

33. I use to be a Peppermint Mocha girl, but after discovering I could get a PSL with almond milk & no whip, I've been converted. Now, the count down is on for PSL season 2017.

Here's to the next 11 months of 33 & Benjamin starting school!
