15 Things About Me

Not my favorite photo of myself, but it's the most recent photo I have. It was taken about a month ago. I had just gotten this new 'do and I took a photo of it so I could send it to my sister and mom only to realize I didn't really like the color. I sent the wig back and got a different color, but I have yet to take any photos of the new one. Oh well!

Here are some random things about me:

1 - I collect Hard Rock Cafe hurricane glasses. I have 7 so far {Paris, London, Salt Lake City, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Honolulu, and Santo Domingo}, and I have acquired them all personally except for one. The "Santo Domingo" glass was given to me by my sweet brother when he was living in the Dominican Republic. He had to make special arrangements for it to make it back to the States for me.

2 - I have Alopecia Areata, but you probably already knew that.

3 - I hate clutter and I rarely get attached to the things I own. One good thing about having moved so many times is that it allows me to go through our stuff before/after each move and I get to purge the house of all the unnecessary items. Sometimes I get rid of things prematurely, though, and find that I should have kept something instead of throwing it out.

4 - I consider myself "a jack of all trades, but master of none." I'm capable of doing many things, but never well enough to brag about them. Ha!

5 - I can't handle raw onions. If I feel the crunch of one in a bite of food, especially if it was unexpected, my gag reflex kicks in quite fiercely.

6 - I was once chased by a bear.

7 - I am obsessed with the smell of laundry detergent and fabric softener. My favorite is Gain, but I'm not too picky. I could stand in the laundry aisle of the grocery store for hours, or spend my days in my laundry room, but I realize that isn't very conducive to taking care of a family.

8 - I love pens and any excuse to use them. I'm big on making lists and love any excuse to write a letter.

9 - I'm addicted to buying makeup. I love trying new things, but I find that I tend to stick to my tried-and-true favorites and everything else just gathers dust after a while.

10 - I could watch Kiera Knightley's "Pride & Prejudice" over and over and over. Brett teases me about it whenever he catches me watching it.

11 - If I could do anything, I would love to learn ballet well enough that I could be "on point." I am always in awe of ballerinas and - NERD ALERT - I love watching documentaries about them.

12 - I have always been a very shy person, and it takes me a little while to open up and be myself. I tend to blend into the background a lot.

13 - I love to shop online. It's always so much more convenient than walking around stores and having to interact with other shoppers or cashiers.

14 - I used to have a cat named Fat-Fat that would call my name {"Mmmmbrrrr!"} in the middle of the night and bring me socks from the sock bin in my parents' laundry room. (My room was on the complete opposite end of the house from the laundry room.) I think his record was 21 socks in one night. Oh, how I miss that kitty.

15 - I would take cookies, brownies, or chocolate over any other kind of candy any day of the week. They are HUGE weaknesses of mine.

That's a bit about me!
