Five Little Known Facts About Me

1. I suffer from what I like to call “High Maintenance Slumbering.” Basically, I can’t sleep unless everything is just so: a fan MUST be on, I MUST have my pillow, and it NEEDS to be dark. I also prefer a big tee-shirt, lotion on my hands and feet, and chapstick is non-negotiable. Sometimes I use earplugs. It helps if the room is cool. I also feel better if there is a glass of water by my bed. 

2. I consider myself to be pretty savvy in all things thrift-store and dumpster-dive related. You don’t even know how giddy I am after a good thrifting. I’d lasso the moon just to show ya.

3. My husband is thirteen months younger than me. So that makes me a cradle snatcher. It also means that I have to hit every huge age milestone before he does. Shoot.

4. I always have slightly shaky hands. I think its hereditary and it annoys the heck out of me. It’s what got in the way of my piano playing – so I switched to the violin thinking it would add some vibrato to my music. Turns out I just suck at anything music related. I also hate holding paper in front of anyone. It’s the tell-tale sign. I probably shouldn’t paint, either.

5. My left thumb is significantly shorter than my right. Its a condition called Clubbed Thumb. Hahah. Its a nuisance that has gotten me teased tremendously as a kid, teenager, and even as an adult whenever I dare hand it over to a snickering Vietnemese manicurist. I don’t get manicures often, but when I do it provides the shop with a fun anomaly to discuss for the rest of the day. Or at least I assume that’s what they’re teeheeing about.

    OMG you’re facts are so much more interesting than the ones I listed! You need to guest post for me one of these days, k?

    Hahaha! Oh the snarky manicurists! So insulting, huh? I think that’s their strategy for getting us to spend more money. Make us feel ugly and then dish out extra for fixing it.

    So funny. I have number one in common with you. It must be dark, I HAVE to have my cup of water, there needs to be some sort of white noise, and I nearly lost it one night when I couldn’t find the chapstick.

    I think I had a camping experience once without chapstick. It was SO awful! Seriously, that stuff is way too addicting.

    First of all, I love your shoes in that picture. Secondly, I’m so glad to have a name for that sleep issue – my husband suffers from extreme “High Maintenance Slumbering” while I could sleep on a concrete floor in the middle of a tornado. And finally, I’m laughing at the image of the snarky Vietnamese manicurist. I think she’s the same one who says to me: “Want eyebrow wax?” and when I say no, she grins and says “Are you sure?” LOL!

    I love that I already knew all your random facts…Here are a few more just for kicks:
    -You had a GREAT perm in 7th grade
    -You’ve eaten at least one meal in a drained church baptismal
    -Your husband is the first and only guy you’ve kissed
