A List of Things

In light on numero uno, I thought I’d share a few things you may or may not know about me/my life, especially if said things have developed in the last year.

  1. Today, at 10:15 am, is my birthday
  2. It is really really REALLY hard for me to not have shoes on – ever. Always shoes outside and either flip flops or my sheepskin slippers inside
  3. I’ve pretty much abandoned all other music tastes this year except country (Dierks Bentley!)…
  4. …unless it is the Civil Wars or Delta Rae.
  5. My go-to sleep position: flat on my back, right ankle crossed over left, hands resting on my stomach, face towards the left shoulder. So comfortable.
  6. I drink hot coffee and tea all year round, just not together. Hot chocolate is best during the summer (somehow), although coffee seems to be winning this year.
  7. Recently I was able to have a FANTASTIC deep conversation with a woman I haven’t seen (or really talked to) in over 3 years. She is full of so much wisdom and I am so thankful I was able to see her again. She is definitely an inspiration to me.
  8. My hubs and I were able to celebrate our anniversary (FIVE YEARS!) with a trip to Oahu, Hawaii. We were able to stay with a friend couple while there, which was a HUGE blessing (Hawaii is expensive!) and be able to spend the money we saved on fun stuff like snorkeling and (A) eating all the musubi he could.
  9. One of my incisors is fake – and most people cannot tell which one it is.
  10. I practice Sudoku before going to sleep.
  11. One of my 2016 goals was to learn more about personal finance and I have been (mostly) reading blogs about all sorts of stuff related to that. My favorites are The Financial Diet, Finance Girl and And Then We Saved.  I even subscribed to Money magazine this year.
  12. BUT, my favorite non-finance related magazine is a tie between Redbook and CookingLight.
  13. I’ve been trying to read a book a month this year and I have FAILED. I read one for April (which only recently got posted – sorry guys Life happens) and have epic-ly (is that even a word?) failed starting/finishing ANY book for May and June.
  14. I recently found out that I don’t blink all the way down, and living in a dry climate exasperates my dry eye so I have to participate in blink exercises to retrain my eyelids. Weird right?
  15. I’m going to bite the bullet and start training again for a 5k. If you don’t know what I’m talking about and why I am so anxious about it, you can read about that here and here.
  16. I am really good at starting projects but not so great at finishing them (STILL working on the AK Memories Scrapbook I started almost three years ago… Don’t judge).
  17. I (surprisingly) really like hot yoga.
  18. My car doesn’t have any A/C, so let’s just say I get really wild hair on hot days…
  19. I am (oh no, here is another project!) putting together a cook book of low calorie, healthy and nourishing meals that (bonus!) don’t contain a lot of  ingredients – or weird ones – AND are meals that I have made myself. Right now the categories are: Seafood, Chicken, Beef/Lamb, Vegetarian/Pasta, Crockpot, Salads/Appetizers/Soups and Desserts. I figure I have three-four more months of making recipes before putting everything together.
  20. I eat an egg sandwich with ketchup every morning, except for maybe Saturdays when I have french toast.
  21. I’ve been wearing dresses on Sundays <gasp>
  22. I would like to take the 200 hour teacher training for Yoga that is offered at the studio I attend
  23. My two new favorite podcasts are The Simple Show and Modern Love.
  24. Popcorn with dill is sooooo goooood…. Try it. Seriously.
  25. Our trivia team consistently wins fourth place. Every. Time.
  26. My favorite drink (more recently) is blueberry cider from Rocky Mountain Brewery.
  27. I’m pretty bummed that Downtown Abbey is in it’s last season.
  28. My new favorite fruits: Rainier Cherries and Lychee.
  29. I hate walking by mirrors in the dark and will purposely avoid them if I can.
  30. A bonus for good luck: I wear flannel pj pants to bed year round. I think it’s a comfort thing.

Happy Birthday to me!
