My 23rd Birthday & 10 Things About Me
Happy Monday friends!
I hope you're having a great start to the week. Today is my 23rd birthday and I cannot believe how fast this year has flown by! Twenty three years kind of sounds like a long time, doesn't it? For this post, I decided to wait until my actual birthday because I want to share with you 10 things you might not already know about me! It's kind of like a 'get to know me' post and I'd also love if you'd leave a comment telling me something I might not know about yourself!
1.) I wanted to be a dog when I was about 6 Years Old
I literally wanted to be one when I grew up, to the point of giving myself a carpet burn on my nose from walking around on all fours and dragging my nose along the ground...I know. I was also a dog for halloween that year, no surprise. Yes, I was a total weirdo, but I am still the biggest dog lover ever and have had my pride and joy puppy, Derby, for over 14 years now!
2.) I HATE Peanut Butter
I'm probably one of the least picky people you'll ever meet, but there is one food that makes me shiver in disgust. That's peanut butter, much to all of you peanut butter lovers' dismay! I have just never been able to stomach nuts and the smell of peanut butter is too much for me.
3.) My favorite trend this season is Straw
I'm swooning over all of the summery straw accessories hitting the shelves right now, especially bags! I got a gorgeous round straw bag for my birthday from Urban Outfitters and I can tell I'll be rocking it all summer long!
4.) I can make a pretty convincing dinosaur noise.
Not only have I watched just about every dinosaur documentary out there, but I can also make a pretty great dino noise myself. Embarrassingly, I'm pretty proud of it lol.
5.) I Was Painfully Shy up until About Junior Year of High School
Until I met my best friend, Joud, I was so shy I would hardly talk to anyone. I think it was because I lacked confidence, but Joud would ask me questions every single day in class to make me talk more. It eventually worked and now I feel much more comfortable talking to people, even if it's not my favorite activity in the world!
6.) My Least Favorite TRend is camo
Camouflage has got to be my least favorite print ever and I doubt you'll ever see me rocking it!
7.) I found out I loved Art By accident
My mom always had us doing art projects as a kind, but I never knew how much I really liked it until high school. I was accidentally put in a painting class and absolutely fell in love with painting.
8.) MY Favorite Color Combo right now
My favorite color combination right now has got to be pink and red but I'm loving blue combined with those colors too.
9.) I got Stung By a Jelly Fish
I got stung by a jelly fish in Spain a few summers ago and I never even saw it! It stung me on my hand and I still get weird bumps in that spot sometimes when I get too hot.
10.) My secret Guilty Pleasure is watching Harry Potter and Eating Cheetos
If I ever want to feel super cozy and happy I'll put on a Harry Potter movie, that I've seen a million times and eat some puffy Cheetos! My favorite HP is Prisoner of Askaban, but I love them all so much.
So there are ten facts about me you might not know! Leave a comment below with something I might not know about you! I can't wait to learn more about my lovely friends and readers. As always thank you so much for reading this post and thank you to all of you who sent me birthday messages today! I'm so so grateful for all of your lovely faces! Also shout out to Miranda from Wildroot Photo again for taking such lovely birthday shots for me! Don't forget to tune in again next week for another post.
