10 things

Monday, February 06, 2012

Just for fun, I decided today was a good day to share 10 things about myself here on this little 'ol blog that you may not have known about me:

1. I lived on a dairy farm until I was nine (and then again on a different dairy farm for a year when I was 15) and now don't really drink milk (I drink the odd latte because, well, they're good even though they make me feel a bit icky after...).

2. I have a serious soft spot for chips, popcorn, candy and buttered toast.

3. I probably eat about two huge bowls of popcorn a week. I air pop it and eat it with olive oil and salt.

4. I haven't owned a microwave for about five years - I do miss it sometimes, but when it comes down to it, it hasn't been bad at all.

5. I have to make my bed every day.

6. Reading a book is a bit like being on drugs for me (not that I was ever on drugs!!!) - I always have to have a book on the go, otherwise I feel like I'm going into withdrawal.

7. According to my husband, I like things "a certain way." This is true I guess. I always have to rearrange the dishwasher and I kind of like things in straight lines and angles.

8. I was born with a cleft lip and worry about my babies having one as well (or cleft palate!).

9. I watched too many action movies as a child and frequently expect crazy things to happen when I'm out. I expect bombs to go off, banks to be robbed, cars to crash... you know, that kind of stuff.

10. The day I met my husband, I was dressed like Sporty Spice for a scavenger hunt during frosh week. We didn't start dating until two years later (I think he was a bit scarred by my outfit).

Ok that's it! And just because I like to have photos around here, I thought I'd share a super-cute photo of a reading nook I found today:

Happy Monday!


  1. :)

    I don't drink milk either
    and I don't have a microwave
    and I love reading
    and popcorn! but my teeth - I can't eat popcorn anymore...

  2. Ohhh - the dairy farm! That brought back LOTS of memories. It seems like a lifetime ago, doesn't it?

  3. What little kid wouldn't love a reading nook like that? i would love one for myself! :)
    I'm with you on the popcorn. I could eat popcorn every, single day. and the books! I have at least three on my nightstand all the time.

  4. Tons of memories! (darn I wish the comment reply function was working for me on this thing!)
