This is 30!

30th Birthday

Well here we are friends…I am officially 30 today, and I’m not mad about it! 😉 I know a lot of people have aversions to celebrating milestone birthdays. But today, I am feeling extremely grateful for everything that God has blessed me with in my first 30 years of life.  I have the best husband, children (and dogs 😉 ) a girl could ask for! On top of that, I am extremely grateful to all of you who have followed along on this journey with me this last year.  Today I thought it would be fun to share 30 totally random things you may not have known about me!

  1. I’m not like a regular mom, I’m a cool mom.  But you probably already knew that! 😉
  2. I’m a lefty.
  3. When I was a kid I wanted to be a veterinarian, but then after my childhood dog, Comet (like the dog on Full House) passed away, I didn’t think I would be able to handle the vet life.  I thought I would be too sad when someone’s pet didn’t make it…which is still true! 
  4. I’m severely allergic to peanuts.
  5. When I was a kid, I was obsessed with the Spice Girls…specifically Baby Spice.  My friends and I even choreographed a dance to “Spice Up Your Life” and my third grade teacher let us perform it in front of the class. Thinking about it kind of makes me die inside! Mind you, I was painfully shy as a kid. Not sure how I pulled that off.
  6. My husband would say that I am majorly OCD, which isn’t entirely true.  I just can’t go to sleep with dishes in the sink.
  7. I am definitely a home-body and would prefer a night in versus going out any day of the week.
  8. I have always been a worrier, even at a young age.  In elementary school I had 5 Giga Pets on my keychain and as I was going through the lunch line in the cafeteria, I would stress myself out trying to feed them all before it was too late. 
  9. If I wasn’t blogging, I would love to do something in interior design. I love all aspects of it but specifically loved the building process.  I would totally do it all over again, but we are planning to stay here forever!
  10. My favorite color is pink, duh!
  11. I graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration, but the older I get, I wish I would have done something in the arts. I couldn’t tell you a single thing about polynomials but I probably would have retained something I learned in art class as it is far more fascinating to me. 
  12. I played guitar 15 years ago and still have my acoustic Taylor (left-handed) I have always wanted to get back into it (with all of my spare time 😉 ) but the only song I remember how to play is “Good Riddance” by Green Day.
  13. There are few things greater in life than a chocolate chip cookie.
  14. I’m not much of a concert person anymore (I’m old now! 😉 ) but I have seen Britney Spears in concert four times. 
  15. I love to read, but I am terrible at making time for it. I am currently trying to finish 30 Days to Understanding the Bible….but let’s just call it 60+ Days…
  16. I don’t really watch much TV, but my favorite show is This Is Us! I don’t even have a Netflix account, which is apparently shocking! I am so behind on all of the shows everyone is watching these days.
  17. I hate horror movies. Lifetime is about as scary as it gets for me! 😉
  18. I am definitely a morning person and usually in bed by 9 pm.
  19. If I had a dollar for every time someone told me that I look like Kristen Bell…
  20. I HAVE to sleep in socks at night and still wear my retainer. Really attractive, I know!
  21. I am a huge animal lover, and truly believe that dog’s are God’s gift to the world.
  22. I love board games, but can get pretty competitive! 
  23. My first job in high school  was at a tanning salon…and now I cringe when I think about the times I used to expose my skin to tanning beds!
  24. I have been working out at Abundio’s Fit Society for 7 years now and one day took 4 classes back to back just to see if I could.  I am the only one who has ever done that, but I wouldn’t recommend it!
  25. I hate flying but have several places on my travel bucket list. Swimming with the pigs in Exuma, Bahamas is definitely in the top 5!
  26. I am notorious for taking on too many things at once and then stressing myself out.
  27. You probably won’t ever hear me say a cuss word and I always buy the ‘clean’ versions of songs on iTunes. My step-daughter always likes to tease me about that!
  28. I always pick restaurants based off of the dessert menu.
  29. If you are driving down Bryant Irvin in Fort Worth, you might recognize me on the Shops of Clearfork Billboard! 🙂
  30. My children are my world!

Now it’s your turn! What’s something about you that I don’t know?
