The Facts of Me

Most of you know, I'm on a mission to become a little bit more classy... well, and more of an adult really.  I decided to share some other random facts about me that make up my existence, plus I'm trying this link-up thing for my first time - you know, trying to move forward on my blogging journey.

Warning, I'm just writing whatever comes to mind and trying not to duplicate the "about me" section.

  • I love coffee and wine... but I spill everything.  Those are two very bad things to love.
  • I have two dogs, Quincy & Lola, that if you overheard me talking about, you would think they were my human children.  I'm a tad bit obsessed.
  • I love "smut" (that's my husband's name for it) TV - which includes anything on Bravo and a few other random reality shows.
  • I was the longest baby my doctor had ever delivered at 24.5 inches... and now I'm 5'3" - apparently those things don't last.
  • I love all musicals, but people don't like to watch them with me because I usually sing the whole time.
  • I have never been to Disneyworld... which won't be true in a few weeks :)
  • I have no tattoos or piercings - that's the fact that I always win with in Never Have I Ever
  • I have an amazing husband.
  • I have a little brother that left the big city to become a tractor boy in South Dakota.
  • My dad and his siblings all have names that start with J - Jeff, Jay, Jim, John, Joe, Jerry, Jennifer and Jason.  Sorry, totally random, but I'm just proud of myself that after 27 years of life, I could name them all SUPER fast.
  • I love four seasons.  Not the fancy pants hotel, but the fact that living in Minnesota gives me winter, spring, summer and fall.  Each has its pros and cons, but I never get bored.
  • I have a sick obsession with Cream Cheese Wontons and once they are in my head, I can't get them out... so I'll probably be braving the -10 degree weather to get some for lunch today now that I mentioned them.
  • I am also starting to love vegetables, which is a good thing, because I became a vegetarian 10 months ago for that reason.  I should say I since then have changed from a vegetarian to a pescatarian (I eat fish.)
  • I can't leave the house without my old school planner, my high tech phone, burt's bees chapstick and sunglasses.  I'm the kind of girl that thinks she looks better with sunglasses on, no matter what time of day.  Sorry, it is what it is.
  • My 2013 resolutions are: becoming more worldly (it's past of my adventure to be more classy), remember gratitude each day, keep eating vegetables and trying to get Call Me Maybe out of my head.
