A little list

Today, I thought I would share some random tidbits about me...because I know you are dying to learn all about little ole me! Here is what makes me tick:

  1. Reading is one of my hobbies but it seems like I rarely get the chance to enjoy it anymore
  2. I am terrible in the kitchen but am really trying to get better
  3. Growing up, I hated sports. Every. Single. Sport. NOW, I love them. Particularly baseball and football
  4. Fall is my favorite season
  5. See #4… I LOVE fall boots. Scarves. Leaves. Pumpkins. Anything fall related
  6. Summer is a close second
  7. Boating is my favorite thing to do during the summer. There is nothing better than enjoying a beer on a boat
  8. I am obsessed with Starbucks…well, caffeine in general. Coffee. Lattes. Chai. You name it. I love it

  10. But I want to go to Australia
  11. I have vertigo and get dizzy randomly…it SUCKS
  12. I do not ride carnival rides or rollercoasters

  19. I prefer white wine to red
  20. I love seafood…
  21. BUT have never tried sushi
  22. I named one of my boys after a Sex and the City character...
  23. which means I am either crazy or I love SatC...I'm going to go with the latter

  28. I am loving painting, decorating and trying to figure out "my style"
  29. I am a total neat freak…which can be really tricky with little ones
  30. I LOVE bathes. Bubbles optional.
  31. Making lists of “things to do” is FUN for me. I get a huge sense of accomplishment when crossing items off
  32. I finished my Bachelors degree when pretty much no one thought I would...and
  33. I want to go back to school. In fact, if I could, I would just be in school my entire life and never work...
  34. because I am convinced I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up
  35. Party planning= FUN not stress
  36. I am easily frustrated when I can’t figure out how to solve a problem on my own. Asking for help is really difficult for me

  49. My favorite author is Emily Giffin
