Things you should know about me if we are going to be Bloggy BFF's

Chrissy over at Boerman Ramblings wrote an fun post this week about, well  herself. She called it,  "Things you should know about me if we are going to be Bloggy BFF's" which got me thinking. I totally need to write one of these. I however have some of the same fears that she did, will people still want to read what I write after they know me better?! Well here goes...

I'm a Pediatric Nurse, with a secret desire to be a stay at home housewife.
It took hubs 6 years to "put a ring on it"
I like infomercial products, You should see my awesome duster that came in the mail the other day 

I love Jesus with all of me
eat cold Pizza for breakfast, I think it might even be better this way.
I'm almost 30 years old and have never drank a cup of coffee..its gross.
I yell when I am upset, like crazy yell, but I prefer to call it speaking loudly.
I will remember EVERYTHING you say to me that is mean... for years
I have a few very best friends from different times in my life.
I am secret eater {like when stressed, I can down a whole box of cookies} I'm working on this.
only wash my hair 4-5 times a week

I'm unsure about being 30 and not knowing what else I should do in life.
I do not eat: fish,tomatoes, organ meat, green olives, cooked carrots
I consider fruit roll-ups as a fruit serving for the day
I go to the movies by myself on the weekends when hubs is at work, he doesn't like to go.
I can read a mindless romance novel in a day, or stay up all night to finish it.
I try not to say I "love" anything other than God, my husband and my family {it's harder than you think, try it for a day}
I have an unhealthy obsession with giveaways, I must enter! {I win a lot:)}

I want a BumpIt for my hair { I love this look, thanks Snookie}
bite my nails
Start my day reading my Bible and praying
pray a lot, all day but to myself and RARELY out loud
My husbands loves when I try and impersonate Saturday Night Live characters, which I only do for him.
I hate that I was raised in a church that made it taboo to raise hands in praise. I struggle with this still and it makes me sad. 
Hubs and I sleep in different rooms {I can sleep through a hurricane and him not so much}
I'm very self conscious about reading out loud in front of people
I secretly miss California, but don't want to move so far from parents again. 
I haven't used my dishwasher in years, except to make sure it worked when we bought our house. 
I make children's clothes, yet have no children.
I try and respond to every comment I receive, they make me so happy 
I plugged my TV in for the first time in 2 years last weekend to watch a DVD {mom brought the DVD player with her to my house}
 I feel blessed to have gained 82  94 blog followers in less than 2 months, and can't believe anyone actually cares what I have to say.

Is there something I forgot? 
Did you want to know something else?
Ask me and I'll do a follow up post.
Also comment and let me know 3 things about you.

Everything According to Erin

Weekend Bloggy Reading


Pin It


  1. 1. I used to have an irrational fear that I didn't shut off the oven. So I would sometimes be halfway to my destination, turn around, and check....just to see that it was turned off already!

    2. I finished undergrad in 2.5 years.

    3. I have 3 nieces, and six nephews!

  2. thanks for linking up at the blog hop i am hosting today! i am now a linky follower & GFC follower! hope you follow me to!


  3. I love reading lists like this! It's so much fun to get to know the person on the other end of the blog you're reading. I just did an 11 Fun Facts and Q&A post on our blog on Saturday. I had so much fun putting everything into words & I love hearing all of the feedback!

    Following your lovely blog now via the Show Some Love Linky Fest!!

    Mendi @ Her Late Night Cravings

  4. Wow!! You are awesome!! :) I love your blog and I am your newest follower!!!!



  5. This is a great post for new followers. Good way to get to know a bit about you

    - I'm a mom of 2

    - I want to be crafty but I don't have a crafty bone in my body

    - I have no self control when it comes to snacky foods, so I always leave the bag in the kitchen so I don't feel as bad when I get up 4 times to finish it :-)

  6. Great Post! As a kid for many years, I tried to convince my Mom that Fruit Roll-ups is considered a fruit serving...she would just nod her head. At 31, she continues to buy them for me. P.S. 30 is the new 20... I too feared of turning 30, it turned out to be the best year ever! :)

    1. I'm addicted to Starbucks coffee and green tea.
    2. I own way too much fashion jewelry, yet never have anything to match with what I wear.
    3. I'm terrified of frogs.

  7. Found your blog via the Linky follower Blog hop,...Am now following your cute blog. Hope you will stop by and say hi. Maybe follows as well:>


  8. Such a cute idea! Here is a little about me
    1) I say that my favorite TV show is Friends, but it is actually Star Trek.

    2) I could eat only fruit for the rest of my life. I love the stuff. Any kind, all kinds.

    3) My greatest fear is drowning - which is ironic because I was a competitive swimmer for almost 20 years.

    Love reading your blog!

  18. this was a great intro! I don't think you should be worried about anyone straying! I had a lot of trouble dealing with turning 30. But now I am turning 32 this year. Crazy. Each year gets tougher. I don't even want to think about being 40. I also can eat a whole box of cookies. My nearly 32 year old body doesn't appreciate this though.

  27. No coffee, never, ever? Wow, I'm impressed!

    We never keep our TV plugged in either. We keep it in a closet and it collects dust.

    Thanks for sharing all these! What a fun post!

  28. I love this post! What a great idea and way to get to know you better!!
    Can I just say that I'm glad I'm not the only,almost 30 year old, that dislikes reading out load. For me though, I almost go into complete panic mode. I have to figure out where I will be reading and read it first and then miss everything everyone else said. It's really sad :( I have just always had this fear...

  29. What a great post idea!! Im so impressed about the TV thing- two whole years? Im trying to get rid of ours because i never watch it, nor films really (being a film student put me off for life after i graduated) but everyone else loves having it on as background noise. I find it depressing though. The news is always so upsetting. Im too sensitive for it. So i read or watch tutorials on things i actually want to learn about on YouTube (and even thats rare). Got me thinking about writing my own list now.

  30. I'm stopping by and following from the Linky Blog Hop. I totally have something kid of like this set up for my blog post tomorrow. How funny this is going around. Such a fun way to be introduced to your blog. :)

  31. This is so great I love this idea,
    1. I drink way to much wine but I love it!
    2. I have a favorite child I know I'm not supposed to say that
    3. I wash my hair everyday I have to do carpool because I don't want the other parents to think I'm slack
    I found you on the linky blog hop and am following hope you will follow me back

  32. I found your blog through the linkup several of the bloggers are posting with your favorite post of the month. It was amusing getting to know you.
    1. In my mind, letters and numbers have genders.
    2. I can not go to sleep unless my closet doors are closed.
    3. Last time I drank coffee (years ago), I ended up in the ER. I haven't touched it since.

    It was fun getting to know you. I look forward to following you.

  33. I agree with almsot everything you said except that while reading I was drinking coffee, haha.
    1. I do not like asparagus! It's creepy looking and I had a bad experience with it as a child.
    2. I would love to go to a hot air balloon festival, or any fair or festival for that matter.
    3. I love Jesus with all my heart, and try to follow Him in every aspect of my life.
    Just found your blog randomly, I really like it!
    http://avintagejoy.blogspot.com/ :)

  34. Lol! Sweetheart, I *only* wash my hair 3-4 times a week, by choice! :D


I love comments almost as much as I love Starbucks and cupcakes - I can't wait to get to know you better.
