It’s here, my birthday. In my opinion I think it has got to be the worst possible week to celebrate a birthday. But unfortunately out of all the things in life that we are able to choose, our birthday is not one of them. I promise to stop complaining now.
In honor of my 30th *cough 33rd cough* birthday I thought I would share
30, 33 things about me.
#1 I’ll admit it. I was half tempted to copy last years list and just add one more.
#2 I take my coffee with a whole lot of cream, but I also can’t stand weak coffee.
#3 I feel like I’ve changed and grown A LOT in the past year.
#4 For example: gray is no longer my favorite color! I can’t even pick a favorite color because I love so many now. Don’t even get me started on patterns!
#5 In 2016 I became addicted to using paper planners,
#6 My most dreaded household chore is cleaning the shower. I HATE cleaning the shower.
#7 My love for pumpkin spice grows a little deeper every single fall.
#8 I just started watching the Gilmore Girls recently. I am currently on season 1 and will be lucky to finish them all by the year 2020. I really do love the show, I just don’t watch TV that often.
#9 I geek out weekly over our families budgets and spreadsheets.
#10 I consider myself pretty open around here and don’t keep much to myself, but I honestly feel like some things just don’t need to be shared on the internet for all to see and hear.
#11 I love taking photos of food. It doesn’t move, wiggle, or complain.
#12 I have a hard time taking me time. Usually when I try I can’t stop thinking about the 100 other things I should be doing.
#13 My favorite person to shop with is Anna. Not only is she a super frugal shopper too, the company is always so good. I’d be lost without her friendship.
#14 I never imagined my 30’s being this good. They are WAY better than my 20’s which has me hopeful for my… well, you get the idea. *gulp*
#15 I can be a bit of a hypochondriac.
#16 I want to run a full marathon (with Anna) some day just to show myself I can.
#17 I like to do burnouts when I drive our 37 Ford. The first time I did one I laughed until I almost cried. I never understood why guys like to do them, but now I totally get it.
#18 I never have a birthday cake because I absolutely refuse to make my own. Since the best cakes are the homemade ones, I just go without. Maybe some day my girls will be capable of baking me one!
#19 I love giving other people presents and surprises but waiting until the right time almost kills me. I just get SO excited.
#20 Sometimes I feel completely unqualified to teach our children. Every year after testing I am assured that we are doing really well. As long as that continues, we will continue to home school. I hope that is forever.
#21 As much as I love our home I’m ready for a change.
#22 Russ is almost exactly 4 years older than me and I don’t ever let him forget it.
#23 Anyone who I text often knows I am the queen of typos. I put at least one in nearly every single message.
#24 It isn’t uncommon for me to misplace things. My keys, wallet, phone, or other important legal documents.
#25 Baking is my thing. I would happily bake almost every single day, especially if someone else cleaned up the mess.
#26 One of my closest friends is someone I have yet to actually meet.
#27 I am TERRIFIED of bees, wasps, hornets, and any other flying, stinging insect.
#28 If I money wasn’t an object I would totally drive a Range Rover. I took one for a drive once and it was amazing.
#29 Once upon a time I was payed to plan, schedule, and organize things. My OCD is probably no longer surprising.
#30 Every time I go to Starbucks I get a bit panicky over how small the menu is and all the options that I know exist, but aren’t listed. I’m probably missing out on something great.
#31 I used to be pretty musical: singing, guitar, and the flute. Now all that is out the window and I am left serenading my girls in the car.
#32 I love being a blogger. The friendships that I have made blogging are some of the sweetest I have. Someday I hope to meet several of you in person, even better if it is several at once!
#33 I think this coming year is going to be a crazy whirlwind, but goodness I am so excited.
