I’m starting a new blog project! I got the idea from a friend and fellow blogger and it seemed like a lot of fun. It’s called Thirty Things and the series comes from Jessi at HOPESandDREAMS. Every Tuesday for the next thirty weeks, I’ll be posting from Jessi’s list! I’m doing it every week as opposed to every day because I figured it might be an easier way to keep me accountable while still being able to write about things I want to write about. Read on to check out the complete list and for this week’s post!
The first week’s task is to list 20 random facts about myself. All right, here goes! You’ve been warned……..
1. Fight Club is one of my favorite movies of all time. Most people say, “Really?” with a very confused look when I admit this. I can’t explain it. I love this movie! It never fails, I notice something else about it that I hadn’t before every time I watch it!
2. My favorite color is green. Bright (NOT lime), grass green. Think a football field in September. :)
3. I used to want to be an Aggie, but in my entire life, I have owned ONE Texas A&M t-shirt. I bought it on a judging trip in high school which also happens to be the only trip to College Station I’ve ever taken in my life. It was pink and had Psalm 75:10 (I will cut off the horns of all the wicked, but the horns of the righteous will be lifted up. NIV) on it. Two years later I was accepted to Texas Tech and never put that shirt on again.
5. I played golf for two years in high school. I was awful.
6. I wish I hadn’t been so responsible in college. I’ve never really screwed up (though I make mistakes every day!) and that sometimes makes me feel like I haven’t really lived.
7. In fourth grade, I wanted to be a lawyer and go to Harvard.
8. I have known my best friend for 18 years and counting. In kindergarten, we didn’t get along.
9. I listen to all kinds of music — lots of rock, classic rock, country, Texas country, even some rap and hip hop. I try to appreciate all genres of music and don’t judge people based on musical preference. ALL music is a form of art and what we’re drawn to is what makes us unique.
10. I have a huge family. It doesn’t matter to me that I have three step brothers, a half brother and a half sister — to me, they’re all 100% my family. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
11. I wish I were as crafty as I seem to be on Pinterest.
12. I am an independent distributor for a health and wellness company called AdvoCare.
13. I’m really into chevron and yellow and gray right now. Yellow and gray chevron? Even better.
14. The Bravo show, The Real Housewives of New Jersey, is a serious (sometimes embarrassing) guilty pleasure of mine. I LOVE THE MANZO FAMILY! Especially Albie. :)
15. I love working out. I try to work out at least five days a week. Sometimes I fail, but I am leaps and bounds ahead of where I was a few years ago.
16. I love fashion and I love outfits that make a statement. But, that said, I usually stick to my standard jeans and tee every day. I’m not brave enough to actually wear these on myself.
17. I just recently bought my first pair of wedges. I’m now a former nay sayer! Wedges are a girl’s best friend.
18. George Strait’s Amarillo by Morning is one of my favorite songs of all time — and my absolute favorite to dance to.
19. I love organizing, but I’m incredibly disorganized and messy. Controlled chaos, I say. I’m working on that.
20. I love my dog! I think she was sent to save me and I don’t know what I would do without her! Her name is Pippa. Yes, she’s named after that Pippa. :)
