I love a good survey post! I came across this 25 Random Facts About Me Survey when reading Sara’s blog the other day so I copied a bunch of the questions and answered them today.
So here we go! Random Facts About Me!
Do you make your bed? I absolutely make my bed every morning. Making my bed is part of my routine before I leave the house to run. I don’t think there’s been a day in my adult life that my bed has been left unmade. I wouldn’t feel right about the world leaving my bed a mess. When my son leaves for school, I make his bed too because I can’t rely on him to do it.
Messy bed, messy mind. That’s just how I see things.
The first car that was officially yours? Ahh, my silver two door Honda Civic back in 1996! My parents surprised me with the car parked in the garage which was a really excitement moment in my life. Sometimes I still see that cute two door 1996 Honda Civic on the road and point it out to people and say, hey that was my first car!
Three grocery items you don’t run out of? Honestly, I run out of everything lately because I’ve become that person who HATES the grocery store. Seriously, going to the grocery store is such a chore for me right now. The items I try not to run out of though are coffee, peanut butter and oatmeal.
When did you start doing your own laundry? So this is really embarrassing but I will be honest. I didn’t do my own laundry until I was 25. I KNOW. Actually, rather than be embarrassed, I consider myself lucky.
If I could still bring my laundry to my mother, I would. Okay fine,
sometimes often I bring her my nicer white shirts so that I don’t ruin them.
If you could, would you go back to high school again? For sure! I loved high school and never really wanted to grow up. Although I think I would like to go back to college right now even more than high school.
Guilty TV pleasure? Where do I begin? The Kardashians, 90 Day Fiancé, Younger, Girlfriends Guide To Divorce and lately, Siesta Key… See I told you, I never really wanted to grow up. But come on, how good is 90 Day Fiancé right now? The whole new Before the 90 days show that just started? Please tell me you watch it?
Sweet or salty? You know that chocolate cake is my love language.
However, I do go salty sometimes. Lately I am all about Mexican food and crave jalapeños like nobody’s business.
I keep thinking about my recent dinner at Dos Caminos and really want to get back there for those vegetarian taco bowls.
Do you consider yourself strong? Physically? Absolutely not. Do not call me to help you lift or move anything. Emotionally though, people say I am really strong. I am not so sure about that but it’s what they tell me.
Something people do, physically, that drives you crazy? So here’s the thing. I have a very low tolerance for people so it doesn’t take much to annoy me. However, I cannot handle listening to anyone chew near me. Do you hear yourself? Please stop it already. It’s nauseating.
Favorite childhood game? I was never a huge fan of playing board games (and puzzles are BORING) but I loved to play Barbies all day, every day. Do girls still play with their Barbies? I hope so.
Would you go on a reality show? Definitely. My life would make an excellent reality show. YOU HAVE NO IDEA. I would just need my friends to be on board and I am not sure everyone in my life would go for it unless we were promised big money.
First thing you remember wanting to be when you grew up? I wanted to be Tom Hanks from the movie Big and get paid for playing with toys. In college, I majored in marketing and had two amazing internships in the toy industry (including one with Mattel which was a really big deal to me). After college however, I fell into the promotions industry instead because the job offers I received in the toy industry just weren’t paying enough to make it worth it.
No matter how much money you have or don’t have, what are you an absolute snob about? Easy question to answer. Skincare and makeup. And shoes and handbags.
There’s just no skimping in the skincare department if you want my opinion. I’m banking on the 20 years of investment in serums, exfoliators and moisturizers to continue to keep me looking young. I started a true quality skincare routine when I was 20 so hopefully this investment means I won’t look 40 until my 50th birthday. 🙂
I would say I am snobby about weekly manicures too but they are really cheap here in New York. There’s a nail salon (or two or three) on every block so the pricing is super competitive. Right now, I pay SIX DOLLARS for a manicure. I know, right? Crazy cheap. Please don’t tell the owner of the nail place I go to weekly that he can probably charge more.
Your turn! What was your first car?
What are you really snobby about?
Do you make your bed? Would your life make a good reality show? What grocery items do you never run out of?
