Random Facts About Me

I thought it would be fun to get to know each other a little better today.  Regular blog posts and product reviews are fun, but they don’t tell you much about my personal life.  Here are a few fun, random facts about me:

I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN INTERESTED IN MAKEUP

When I was a little girl my mom was a Mary Kay consultant.  She would take her old compacts and glue colored paper in the bottoms so it would look like blush and eyeshadow.  I would take the little sponge tip applicators and “put on my makeup”.  In middle school, I was dying to wear makeup and distinctly remember waiting for my thirteenth birthday when my mom said I could wear mascara.

Here I am at four years old, applying ‘eye shadow’ to my baby doll. 🙂

 

I AM SCARED TO DEATH OF SPIDERS

Petrified.  Doesn’t matter how big or small it is… the fear is real.  I would pick up a snake and kiss it before I would let a spider get anywhere near me.  I have had nightmares that a spider was on me, and I will wake up in panic!  I have to turn on the lights and search the whole bed before I can go back to sleep.  Uggghhhh!

I AM ALWAYS COLD

I am such a cold natured person.  And my husband is extremely hot natured so we are constantly arguing over temperature!  If there was one thing I could change about our relationship, I would make it so we were both comfortable at the same temperature.  I have to keep a blanket in my car, even in the middle of summer, because the air conditioning is so cold.  I see a dual climate control vehicle in our future!

I LOVE TO COOK

When I was a teenager my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer – she is just fine now! 🙂  During her treatments she also underwent knee surgery, so during that time I did most of the cooking for the family.  I had a crash course in how to cook and I ended up loving it!  I love trying new recipes and I love to read cookbooks!  My collection is probably a little excessive!  I recently tried these Lemon Cupcakes with Blackberry Buttercream… yum!  You can find that recipe here.

I HAVE NEVER PLAYED AN ORGANIZED SPORT

Other than miserable sessions of dodgeball in gym class, I have never played an organized sport.  I was never athletic and am extremely non-competitive.  I would happily let someone else win before I would be injured or in pain.  Not a coach’s dream.  I am sure there are many coaches out there that are grateful that they didn’t have to deal with me!

Now I would love to find out about you!  Comment below with a random or little known fact about yourself… let’s chat!

  1. That doll needed a makeover for her hair far more than she needed one for her face! You know you are at a very relaxing spa when your attendant is wearing their jammies!
