10 Fun Facts About Me + Two Truths & A Lie

I am a pretty open book and probably divulge more personal information than I should in this little space so you may be thinking "how can she possibly share 10 things I don't already know about her?" Valid thought. Hope you'll play along anyway...

10 Random Fun Facts About Me
 
one // My first car was a red 1994 Chevy S10 pickup truck. It was a stick shift and I drove the heck out of it until it bit the dust in college. When I got home my parents surprised me (and boy, was it a surprise) with a 2001 sparkly blue Buick Regal they bought from an old lady who was moving into a nursing home. Yep, you can read that full story here.
 
two // I've never had a cavity. This is probably because I brush my teeth for no less than 15 minutes while making bottles, cleaning the kitchen, picking up toys etc. Matt thinks it's so weird that I multi-task while teeth brushing.

three // Matt also thinks it's weird that I've worn a gold toe ring since middle school. My grandma always wore one and gave my mom and sister one too. We all wear them. Weird? Maybe.

four // I don't know how to whistle. Or do a cartwheel.
 
five // A huge pet peeve of mine is a TV playing in an empty room that no one is watching. I am always turning off the TVs in our house. Five minutes later I'll hear "Hey! I was watching that!!!" My parents are the worst at this too.
 
six // My Starbucks drink is a Short Nonfat Cafe Misto with 2 pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup.
 
seven // I am an exclamation point enthusiast. I use them way too much!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
eight // I've never colored my hair before -- a true redhead! And my hair cuts never cost more than $15.
 
nine // I drive past my wedding venue twice a day and my office sits 23 floors above my rehearsal dinner venue.
 
ten // I am a certified scuba diver.
Pretty much the exact truck I drove minus obnoxious Kappa Delta and University of Florida stickers.

Two Truths & A Lie

And for one more fun activity, let's play a game of two truths and a lie. Can you guess which statement below is a fib?

true or false: In college I backpacked Europe for a month by myself.

true or false: I am over 5 feet tall.

true or false: In middle school I broke my left arm and my left hip in a rollerblading accident.

The answer?
True: One summer break during college I took a 30 day backpacking trip around Europe. I went by myself but ended up making friends. 
 
True: In 7th grade I did in fact break my left arm and hip in a rollerblading accident. While wearing rollerblades, a friend on foot was pushing me while running. I was going pretty dang fast when one of my brother's friends jumped in front of me and didn't move in time. We collided and it was pretty much a disaster. 
 
False: I am 4'11" tall.
Thanks for playing along!

  1. This was such a fun post! I love brushing my teeth and do so multiple times a day but somehow I just got my first cavity! I was devastated! And I'm always using an exclamation point and often wonder if I overuse them?! Probably not. Have a good day!

    1. Nope! This girl can't do them either. I always chalked it up to me being too bottom heavy LOL!

  5. I also multitask while brushing my teeth. I make my bed, pick out my outfit for the day, turn on my curling and/or flat iron, etc etc. And I don't know how to whistle (or cartwheel) either. I feel like I used to be able to whistle, but that was very short lived.

  7. That truck....I drove the EXACT same one, mine was white, also a stick shift. I signed a napkin (all we had at the time) before I turned 16 that I would never drive that truck. Oh but I did and it certainly served me well!

  8. I had to laugh when I read the part about multi-tasking while brushing your teeth. Ever since we got new electric toothbrushes, I can't do anything while brushing but lean over the sink. I make the biggest, slobbery messes now while brushing!

  9. You need to post all about your trip to Europe!! :)

  10. These are hilarious! I'm glad I'm not the only one who can't whistle or cartwheel (I hate my feet leaving the ground!) :)

  11. The Europe backpacking trip sounds like a blast. I want to do that with my Mr. before I am too old to walk.

  12. Hi Christina,

    Let me tell you something. In India, married women wear toe rings and that's a ritual and me being an Indian dont think wearing a toe ring is weird :D. I have a good collection of silver toe rings and I love them :D

  13. You'll have to do a post about your European travels - I don't think I'm alone in thinking they would be amazing to read!

  14. I totally multitask while I brush my teeth as well... most of the time to go to the bathroom... My hubs always thinks it's disgusting! Lol.

  15. Haha, love these! And love that you are a true red head! My husband is slightly red-headed so I've been hoping for red-headed children but apparently you have to have it on both sides... I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I think it's the best hair color in the world!

  16. Fun post, lady! I'm always fascinated by people who can't whistle, I don't know why. So cool you backpacked Europe. My husband and I are taking a trip there this year and I can't imagine backpacking, I'm so old. I multitask while brushing my teeth too, my husband thinks I'm a nutjob.

    BTW, I'm not in a sorority but yours was founded at my school :)!

  20. Loved reading your answers. I was pretty sure about your two truths, you are a brave girl willing to try anything once I assumed. LOL

  21. I just got my first cavity at 29! Yay for the cheap haircuts! I wish I could get away with one, but I like the whole experience of going to a nicer salon and getting my highlights, coffee in hand, and People magazine. Also, where did you go in Europe? I lived in England for 11 years of my childhood, so I've always have a piece of my heart left behind.

  22. This is such a fun post idea!

  23. Ooooh fun! I can relate to so many of these: look ma, no cavities!, not knowing how to whistle or cartwheel, hating when the tv is playing for no reason. Yep yep and yep! :) The backpacking trip sounds amazing!

  24. I have worn a silver toe ring since high school... so over 10 years! Everyone makes fun of me but I love it and can't imagine my toe without it! ;) Such a fun post!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Anddddd enter the hair envy!!!!! $15 haircuts that look like yours... #winning! Love that you did the backpacking trip on your own!!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. What a fun post!
    I don't think it's weird you multi task, I think it's a natural thing moms do. How else would things get done if we didn't?

    ReplyDelete
  27. This was so fun! So many things I didn't know and would have never guessed about you!:)

  28. Your hair is so gorgeous! I'm so jealous that you never coloured it. I spend so much money at the hair salon every 6 to 8 weeks. And I am totally the same with TVs

    ReplyDelete
  29. So fun!! So jealous of your hair - no color and cheap haircuts? Ah! I used to turn off TVs until I heard that it costs more to turn it off than it does to run it all day...now it still bothers me, but I don't turn them off unless we leave. I wonder if it's really true...

  30. love this!!! :)

    I also cannot stand a TV on in an empty room - drives me crazy and I always have to turn it off! The toe ring is so cute and can't believe you have worn it for so long! And a sub diver - wow!
