A Reintroduction

Since it's been awhile, I decided that my blog needed a fun, light-hearted post. So that's what you're getting today! Yours truly complied a list of very random, but completely accurate tid bits. This can also serve as an informal introduction to people who maybe don't know me well, but want to. 
Here's a pic of me & my oldest because CUTE. Thank you Fifty Clicks Photography & Loryn Eaton Photography!

Cleaning is one of my most favorite things to do, which is probably part of why I love being home so much. The only problem is that I never have enough time, so some days my house does look filthy.

I recharge by having alone time (so I guess that makes me an introvert?) but I do still consider myself very social! 

I do not "suffer" from RBF. In fact, I may suffer from the opposite: always having a smile on my face. It's not that I try to, that's just how my face is. *insert shruggie here*

I require a hot breakfast every day. I've tried yogurt and similar items for b-fast, but after 30 years on earth, I am proclaiming that I'm a breakfast snob and need only warm items first thing in the morning. See: I eat a lot of eggs & sausage.

I am a rule-follower for sure.

I am *not* a morning person, despite having thought I was my whole life. This only recently became apparent when my hubby pointed out that I always need about an hour to fully wake up. 

One thing that really irritates me is when I see people litter. I have no clue why this makes me so frustrated, but it does. 

I have nothing against alcohol, but I don't drink. It's just not my thing. I am completely open to it (and had plenty of college drinking days) but don't see the point in drinking alcohol unless I'm going out and dancing or something similar. Since I'm currently a mom to two babies under two years old, that just isn't happening right now. Or anytime soon.

I've always considered myself a girly girl, but I have decided that I'm not as girly as I thought. I never get waxes, pedicures, manicures or my hair done. But when I do, I feel really fancy and special. Which reminds me of another truth bomb: lately, I've been getting my hair cut at Great Clips, because $10 on a trim never felt so good.

I have terrible spring allergies and have to take Claritin or similar during the spring.

I absolutely hate texting. I'm the worst at responding. Currently, I have 38 unread text messages. I'm not kidding. So if you're wondering if I'm ignoring you, I'm not. I just wait to open texts until I feel up for the challenging of responding. I'm sorry that I'm like this!

Spoilers are kinda my thing. I love to know what happens on TV shows & movies before watching them. My favorite site to read is Reality Steve (and it just so happens that he announced yesterday who Rachel, the new Bachelorette, picks)!

Taking a shower is such a chore to me, but I begrudgingly do it daily in the evenings before bed.

Stripes are my favorite pattern.

TV watching is my most favorite thing to do. I just finished Santa Clarita Diet. Often my shows are pointless and not brain stimulating at all, but I still like it. If you've seen it also, I just want to point out that my favorite line for the show (it's only 10 episodes long) is in ep. 9 when the blonde housewife says to her son, "you still have that new baby smell." You'd really have to watch it to understand what I'm talking about.

I was always a terrible sleeper (restless, easy to wake, etc) until I had two kids.

I consider myself a really good window shopper. I scope things out for a good period of time before I buy.

I only drink my coffee iced. Hot coffee has a completely different taste to me, and I don't like it one bit. Unless it has a boat load of cream and sugar in it, which is not preferable and clearly just tries to cover up the taste of coffee.


  1. I always responded to text right away...prior to motherhood! Totally takes a back seat now. I feel the same about showers. It's not that I don't want to be clean, it's just something else to do especially if I need to wash my hair. It's so good to see a picture of sweet Kensington, she has grown up so much!

  2. I just stumbled on your blog via Googling having a second baby! I thought it was kind of funny because I'm pregnant with a boy and we're naming him Bennett, and then right now I'm wearing the #Momlife shirt that is in your picture. So random, but thought I would say hi!

  3. I also feel the same way about showers! I used to shower in the morning and then blow dry and fix my hair - now I want all the extra sleep I can get to I shower at night, dry my hair and sleep on it. My hair isn't as cute in the morning, but I have a much better attitude. I've been following your blog, I'm happy to see your little man is home and growing strong. Best wishes to your and your family!
