It’s Official….You don’t know everything about me!! But guess what? I’m going to the change that today because my girl over at Random Pockets of Chaos gave me an award and I have to tell you 10 things about myself that you don’t know. Thanks for the award, Alyson!!
1.) I am claustrophobic. I get freaked out in car washes especially. I can handle an elevator as long as it’s not too long of a ride.
2.) I have sensory issues. I don’t like wind in my face when we’re riding in a car or from a fan; people chewing drives me insane; I hear every little noise; certain textures and fabrics make me nuts; my husband teases me about it constantly.
3.) I was a bank teller throughout most of college. BO-RING!! (Sorry to any of you that may hold this job…maybe your branch is busier than mine was!) But it was really cool and awe-inspiring to be in the presence of that much money in the vault!!
4.) I looked like a boy until I was 13. I’m not talking tomboy either. I’m talking I would get yelled at by mothers for being in the wrong bathroom. Seriously. Gives a girl issues.
5.) I had my heart seriously broken in high school. Not so original there but still. Right in half. Might explain why I only had one serious boyfriend before Matt. That and looking like a boy until 13…but I digress.
6.) I’ve never done drugs. Not even a little pot. Too scary for me. Now wine? That’s a different story.
7.) I’m 5 feet 8 inches tall now and in 5th grade was 5 feet 6 inches tall. Everyone thought I was going to be a giant. Might also explain why people thought I looked like a boy and the no boyfriend thing. Plus my buzz-cut haircut. (Thanks, Mom! 😛 )
8.) I am a celebrity nut. I love to read People and watch E! news and stuff like that. I know celebrities like most boys know sports teams. I think it came from going to my Grandma’s when I was little and reading all of her magazines. She subscribed to all of them.
9.) I was terrified of dogs until Matt and I got our first one. Seriously terrified. Even of little ones.
10.) I’ve read all of the Harry Potter books 6 times and the Twilight series 4 times. I think I’ve read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory at least 15 times. These are the only books I’ve ever bought and re-read. I just love them.
Learn anything new? Hope so!! Now onto the fun part! I’m supposed to pass this on to 10 Beautiful Bloggers. I don’t want to leave anyone out, and there are a lot of blogs that I enjoy reading, so I’m going to give it to 10 of my “new” favorites that I’ve discovered. Enjoy and I hope you’ll go check them out!!
Thanks again, Alyson, for the award. It made my day!!
