{Giveaway} Important Things While I'm Gone...




I realize I'm the last person in America (ok, in blogland) to do this post, but I really like it and wanted to join in on the fun. Here I am sharing some things about yours truly that you may or may not know! (*and at the end are some more interesting people than myself you need to meet, and also a Target giftcard giveaway. I know that got your attention!)

If you really knew me....

+You'd know I seriously hate waiting {at a traffic light, for my place in line, for the next meal I can eat, on and on..} I'm impatient.

+You'd know I eat peanut butter out of the jar with a spoon and could eat it at every meal. 

+You'd know I'd do anything (anything) for a long back scratch. My mom used to scratch my back every night before bed and I loved it. More than a massage. I've even thought of paying for a massage, but then asking to just scratch my back for an hour instead. Ha...

+You'd know that on any given day when I read or see an idea about changing (meh, improving) up our house, or something I'd want in a future home, I email the link to Billy. The last subject line of an email I sent him with a link read, "ripping out closet doors by entry way". He must think I'm certifiable.

+You'd know I once turned down a trip to Hawaii because I used to get so sick on planes. We're talking head spinning, ears popping, motion sickness galore. Luckily, my Dad told me to suck it up and that I'd fully regret not going, so I went. Thank the heavens. Now? I LOVE flying and no sickness!


+You'd know I say "babe" (to Billy) more than the word "the".
And just to make this statement true...hey, babe.

+You'd know I went 25 years without drinking coffee, of any kind. The past couple years (especially the last 6 months) I've been sucking down iced coffee's (in the summer) and skinny vanilla/pumpkin spice latte's (in the fall/winter).

...did I just say pumpkin spice?
Went there.

+You'd know I get grouchy if I go longer than 3 hours without eating. #sorryimnotsorry

+I don't take as much time as I should getting ready during the week. Most of the time, I rarely have any makeup on and my hair is back in a ponytail!

+You'd know I'm notorious for leaving the sticker on the bottom of new shoes. I always forget to take them off and my friends have been known to take them off for me in bathroom stalls. They are tricky little things!


+You'd know nothing excites me more than Ohio State football season (KICKOFF THIS SATURDAY! Go Buckeyes!) and planning vacations.


+You'd know I'm not an introvert by any means. I love being social and it's hard for me to say no, and to actually just stay in when I want to. I'm trying to work on this because I do enjoy time at home, too.

+You'd know I love Harry Potter and Twilight {team Edward}. Sue me.

+You'd know THESE fabulous bloggers/my sponsors. They are awesome. Take a couple minutes and get to know them!




+Lastly, if you really know me you'd know I have a great giveaway for you while I'm in California. Gosh, I'm so cool. ;)  I have to leave you with something good, right?

  19. I feel like I just read my very own "If you really knew me..." post. Seriously-we're the same damn person. (Minus the Harry Potter/Twilight comment)

    Peanut butter on a spoon...yes please! Impatience...my middle name. College football...favorite time of the year. Look like shit at work...me to the TEE. Grouchy when hungry...yep. Certified nut job according to my husband...YEP. Introvert? What the hell is that?

    Twins bazzle!

    Love you boo!!!

  20. haha! You and my man are similar in you both get crabby if you don't eat. I swear he's preparing me to be a mother already because I have to carry snacks just incase we get caught up and we don't eat on schedule. lol!

    Also, the back scratch? So with you, sister. I've contemplated the exact same thing. haha!

  23. I think it's funny that you are an impatient driver. I'm the most passive, distracted driver I know. Jeremy says I'm a danger to the road. He has a theory that the speeders and aggressive types are good drivers because they take initiative and know what they're doing (can you guess which one he is?) This may be TMI but I read a blog post once that argued that you could tell how a person is in bed by how they drive. Let's just say, I beg to differ... And hey! I didn't drink coffee till I was 25 either! Have fun on your vacation!

  51. I can't believe you didn't drink coffee for so long!! Not that I drink real coffee, but I love anything iced. Hope y'all are having fun on vacation!!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I didn't drink coffee for twenty years! Last summer I started drinking iced vanilla lattes and last fall I added pumpkin spice lattes. They are both SO good! I'm already craving pumpkin spice lattes but it is WAY too hot for them still, even in MI, so maybe I'll get them iced!

    I am so glad football has finally started! I'm a Michigan fan though. GO BLUE!
