Things You Should Know About Me

Hello Monday! You sure snuck up on me. We had a great, laid back weekend. I didn't take very many pictures so I only have one to share today. It's the perfect example of just how our weekend went.

Since I don't have much of a weekend recap for you, I thought it might be fun to share some random facts that you might now know about me.

-I'm obsessed with looking at before/after weight loss and fitness pictures. I find it incredibly motivating and amazing how you can change your body with hard work and dedication.

-I read every single comment on my blog but I am not always the best about responding back. I feel terrible about it and after every post I promise myself that I'm going to get better. Please forgive me and know that I cherish each and every comment!

-I love doing embroidery but when I mess up I usually won't touch my machine again for at least a week. 

-I read books on my iPhone. It's small but it's surprisingly comfortable for reading.

-I adore cute shoes but 9 times out of 10 you will see me in Rainbow flip flops. They are just so comfortable and make chasing a toddler easier. I've tried wearing some of my cute flats and sandals lately and I just come home with blisters and sore feet!

-I'm a huge animal lover and I kind of wish I would have studied something animal related. I don't think I would have liked to be a vet, but maybe a zookeeper or something.

-Window shopping is fun for me! I don't mind browsing and not buying. Obviously my window shopping is pretty limited this day because Emerson doesn't feel quite the same way about it as I do.

-I feel intimidated talking about my faith with people who are more knowledgable about the Bible than I am.(Pretty much everyone- I have a lot to learn!) I'm always afraid I'll look dumb or have no idea what they are talking about.

-I'm always reluctant to try new trends. When colored pants first came out I said there was absolutely no way that I would be wearing them. Guess who bought her first pair of mint capris over a year later. That would be this girl.

-I hate making phone calls. Obviously not to friends and family, but to companies. I tend to put it off until I just have to do it. For instance, I really need to call the cable company but I don't want to because I know they are going to try to talk me into something I don't need or want and I just hate the hassle.

-I think that the two most amazing sounds in the world is the sound of your child's laugh and their voice saying I love you. I could cry just thinking about it!

And I guess that's enough random for today. I'm sorry for a practically picture-less post!

I am the same way about my sewing machine. If a project I had been looking forward to goes bad....I will take a long break from the machine. Don't know why that is! I am slow on trends too. But I am more like 2 years behind on trying them. LOL Cute pic of E!

I understand completely about the religion intimidation. My husband and his sisters went to parochial elementary school so they know so much about the Bible. It's both inspiring and completely intimidating. Just try and use it as fuel to learn more!
Loved the one photo :)

Jessica @ Better Together and Forever said...

LOVE that photo of E! I wish it was that warm in Missouri! :)

Ashley said...

I am the same way with comments on my blog! I always end up reading them when the e-mail comes through at work and then I say to myself "Oh, I'll respond when I get home" and that never happens!

And if I could live in Rainbows, I would. I really need them to develop some sort of winter shoe so that I can wear them year round!!!

E is such a mess. She looks darling sitting in her pool. I find it hard to share my faith as well.

Emily Powell said...

I hate making phone calls. To anyone. I just don't like using the phone. Love the picture!

J and A said...

Loved this post. That photo is SO cute!!! That is summer! :) I love before/after photos!

Allison Boutwell said...

I hate making phone calls too; I always try to see if they have an option for chatting online. It's so much easier and I can easily exit when they try to get me to buy. HA

Natalie said...

I am the same way about fashion trends!! I always end up liking them like a year later too. just bought my first pair of colored pants as well ;)
and I'm the same way about phone calls too. but just don't like talking on the phone in general....I'm so bad about ignoring calls...whoops ;)

Gabriella said...

That picture is perfect!:) I would avoid talking on the phone any day!

Andrea @ Life in Dawleywood said...

I nodded my head in agreement with most of these. I am the WORST at responding to comments! I need to get better, I don't want people to think I'm rude or ungrateful!

Natalie said...

Ha ha I hate making call too! Like to order pizza...I will make my husband do it. I read on my iPhone too...so easy and convenient!

BeckyJo606 said...

I love your random post! I feel the same way about sharing my faith. I just feel like it's something I "feel" but I do need to get better about figuring out how to talk about it. I love the pool picture--I wish it was warm enough to do that here!! :)

I let my husband talk about religion (he was a pastor's kid) and do the phone calls to companies. If I can't do the business end online, it doesn't get done. I am horrible.

I don't even like calling family/friends unless it's my mom. My MIL and I have a texting relationship when we're not in the same area. It's sad, but it works for us.
