If You Really Knew Me ...

I have seen a few posts like this floating around the interwebs recently, and it got me to thinking that there are probably a bunch of things that my readers don't know about me. Things that you wouldn't really know unless you knew me in person. So, I thought I'd put together a list to help you guys to get to know me a little better. I know, you're welcome ;o)

If you really knew me then you'd know ...
  • That I am a total neat freak. Like, all dishes in the dishwasher, counters wiped down, laundry put away kind of freak. I just can't seem to stop myself sometimes. 
  • I am always late. For everything. It's one of my least favorite things about myself, and it drives B craaazy.
  • I love to dress up, but you can often find me in comfy clothes while working out of my home office. Some days I get dressed right before B walks in the door so I don't look like a total bum.
  • Same goes with my hair. I have a thick head of dark, wavy hair, and while I can do lots of things with it, I often throw it in a ponytail or messy bun because I'm too lazy to straighten it everyday.
  • One of my very favorite things is TV. I am sure that it has something to do with the fact that we watched a lot of TV in our house while I was growing up, but it is one of my favorite things to do, and one of the ways I relax. I watch way more shows than I'd like to admit.
  • I'm not sure if I have a favorite color. Wardrobe wise, I wear mostly black, but that can't be a favorite color, right? I love brights and fall colors. I guess I don't really discriminate.
  • I am the oldest of four children, and while this has been a great job, my type-A, leadership qualities get exhausting sometimes.
  • There are days where I wish I could just lay on the sofa and watch countless hours of television instead of running around cleaning, organizing, working, blogging and running errands all.the.time. I think I feel guilty if I give myself time to 'relax,' and I wish I could stop doing that to myself.
  • One of my most favorite things to do is stream an episode of the Kardashians, Smash or Felicity and drink a glass of wine (or 3) while I cook dinner. I think this will be the thing I miss most once I get pregnant.
  • I wound up living in Maryland by way of New Jersey and Virginia. While I do love being here surrounded by so many of our friends, I miss home a lot and think about moving back all the time.
  • I have a few girlfriends that I cannot go more than two days without talking to. There are about 4 of them and they know who they are. I have the best girl friends ever.
  • I am a child of God and my faith is very important to me. Perhaps I should talk about that part of my life more here. Cue the planning
  • My absolute biggest vice (when it comes to food) is macaroni and cheese. I cannot get it out of my system, and still find myself buying boxes of Annie's or even Kraft at the grocery store. Someone please sign me up for a support group.

Well, there's a little more about me, I hope you enjoyed it, and weren't bored to tears. I'd love it if some of my readers would comment and leave me 1-2 things I probably didn't know about them!

I am also a total neat freak and don't know how to relax! I find that I feel guilty when things aren't cleaned up. Now that I'm pregnant, it's really starting to become a problem b/c I just exhaust myself but can't seem to stop it from happening!! Try to relax more now (and give some of those jobs to B) so you will be able to do a better job than I did come pregnancy! :)

I never realized how much I cherished my weekly wine night (thursday nights with all my TV shows) until I got pregnant and had to substitute juice instead of wine. Enjoy it now!

Things you don't know about me? Pretty much nothing. LOVE YOU!

I've seen this type of post a lot. They are always interesting to read. I've made one up but just haven't posted it.

I'm the same way with my hair. I have curly hair, so it either looks really nice or it looks messy and thrown up into a bun. Unfortunatly, you can't wear it in a ponytail then decide to have it down later - it's one way or the other!

I love TV too - I wish I didn't! I used to read so much before but now I do like to relax with some old Friends episodes, trash reality like the Kardashians, or just about anything really. Wonder if I'll ever cut back, but not planning to any time soon! :)

Oooh I love Smash! I love TV too (obvi lol). Do you watch Grey's or Revenge? Hope you won't be drinking that wine for too much longer :) Thanks for sharing!

Courtney said...

I'm so with you on cooking dinner! I love to watch my favorite shows and drink wine while I put a meal together. Cute post!!!

I am right there with you on being late to EVERYTHING. It makes me crazy and I feel bad about it but.. I'm just always late. Oh well :)

I share a lot if the same traits - being late, neat freak, mac and cheese. Something else? I wish I could be a professional housewife lol.
