Happy Birthday to Me, 29 Things You Didn’t Need to Know About Me

I have decided that after this 29th birthday I am going to continue to turn 29 every year. The next milestone birthday is looming ahead a little too closely.

  1. I don’t drink hot beverages unless I am sick.
  2. The only award I have ever won was for a state and national home economics testing competition in high school.
  3. I had two strawberry marks (like birth marks) on my head as a baby, and to this day very blonde hair grows where they used to be. It’s like built-in highlights.
  4. I am fifteen years younger than my husband.
  5. The only vegetable I really don’t care for is brussel sprouts.
  6. My shoe size is 6.5
  7. When I am stressed or need to relax I bake muffins…therefore I bake a lot of muffins.
  8. I have never met a cheesecake I didn’t like.
  9. Speaking of cheesecake, this had been my birthday cake since I was 8 yrs old.
  10. I HATE roller coasters.
  11. If I had tons of free time, I would work in my yard more often. I love yard work.
  12. I seem to collect chairs. I own too many of them.
  13. I hate the feeling of wet cloths. Putting clean clothes into the dryer is NOT one of favorite tasks. And wet wash clothes in the shower? Don’t even get me started.
  14. I like ironing more than I should. I have been known to iron my pjs.
  15. I really love prunes.
  16. Iced grapefruit sparkling water with one sweet ‘n low is my current beverage of choice.
  17. I decorate with blue more than any other color.
  18. I didn’t get my ears pieced until I was 17, also the same year I got my driver’s license.
  19. My friend Rebecca named my first car Humbilina b/c it was humbling to drive it.
  20. I don’t like to wear make-up and to be honest I don’t like to do my hair. I would be a perfect hippie.
  21. At night, I have to layout my clothes for the next day because if I don’t…. I will pick out super strange outfits in the morning.
  22. I am not a morning person.
  23. And I am not a night person either.
  24. But I am a pretty nice person as long as I get enough sleep.
  25. I could really go for a nice juicy hamburger right now.
  26. Or a bowl of French onion soup.
  27. Speaking of which the next recipe I am going to try is slow cooker caramelized onions for French Onion Soup by Foodie with Family.
  28. I can’t believe I almost made it through this list.
  29. There I made it.

Happy Monday!
