Blog Hop: 25 Things You May Not Know About Me

Christine, from Everyday Mama, is heading up a Blog Hop. 
She made a great point that moms are great at writing or talking 
about any and everything... except ourselves. So, here are 
25 things you may not know about me.

  1. I was allergic/intolerant to eggs, gluten (wheat), and casein (milk) for 5 years. My daughter was my “cure”.
  2. After my allergies were gone I ate scrambled eggs with cheese, on a bagel, with a tall glass of whole milk, everyday, for at least 2 months.
  3. I read to learn. I don’t like fiction, unless it’s a children’s book.
  4. I believe that all books should have pictures, diagrams, charts, anything visual to break up all the words.
  5. I think that my daughter is quite honestly the funniest person I have ever met, and she is only 2.
  6. I think that it shouldn’t take longer to prepare a meal, than it takes to eat it. This is why I don’t cook often.
  7. I helped my mom start and run an at-home business at age 7.
  8. I drastically changed my career choice 3 times in college, without ever changing my major. (1. Special Effects Make-Up Artist, 2. Sports Advertising, 3. Baby Planner)
  9. In high school I was the lead make-up artist or designer on 15 different theatre shows.
  10. I hate crowded places. I try to only go to touristy locations or malls Monday-Thursday.
  11. I’ve never had anyone other than my mom clean my teeth. (She’s a dental hygienist.)
  12. I love new office supplies.
  13. Being creative and crafty makes me happy.
  14. I’d rather talk to you in person or talk over the phone, rather than email.
  15. I used to collect print ads. 
  16. I dominate at the game “Chubby Bunny”.
  17. I enjoy sending and receiving cards, and won't throw them away.
  18. I use cleaning as a procrastination tool.
  19. I love giving presents, and I can’t keep them a secret.
  20. Wrapping presents is one of my favorite things to do.
  21. My favorite color is lime green.
  22. My husband and I were good friends for almost 2 years before we started dating.
  23. Dressing my daughter helped me add more color to my own wardrobe.
  24. My own baby “plan” involves adoption, in the future.
  25. I’m crossing my fingers for Baby #2 soon.

  1. Thanks for joining in the Blog Hop!! Can we do makeup sometime together?! I was the one girl in college and high school that had to do everyone's makeup because I was awesome at it -- I've seem to lost the touch :)

  2. Thanks! Not sure you would like the stage make-up I did. Lots of old age, or I can turn you into a pretty convincing tiger ;)

    You can practice street make-up on me anytime though!

  4. #15 ~ ME TOO!! I would keep them in a photo album. All sorts of things too, anything that struck me as interesting.

  5. We have a lot in common! I too love new office supplies, being creative & crafting, wrapping & giving presents, & I have to admit, I still collect print ads to this day. Actually, any cool printed graphic I find, I tend to stow away somewhere for future creative inspiration, or, just because... : ) Thanks for sharing, Heather!
