Some Things You May Not Know

First off, I'd like to give one hell of a thank you to everyone for the amazingly sweet and encouraging comments on yesterday's post. My favorite part about blogging will always be reading through each and every one of your comments and feeling the love from complete strangers. It melts my heart because there's really nothing like it. 

Another one of my favorite parts about blogging is that I can write shit about myself all day long in numbered lists and somehow get away with it. Because it seems more often than not that this "lifestyle blog" of mine is made up of me choosing to write about the quirky facts of me rather than the daily musings of my life. I'm not sure how it works out this way but it does so I'm just going to stick to it.

1// I hated dolls growing up. My "babies" when playing house were stuffed animals. And don't even get me started on Barbies. I cried one Christmas when I received one as a present from my aunt…and then proceeded to cut all of its hair and limbs off. I'm a real peach.

2// I wish it was socially acceptable to wear booty shorts as pants. Leggings are pants so why can't underwear be pants? I really just hate pants. They get all constricting in places you don't want to be constricted. And I really would love to be able to skip around all day in a pair of itty bitty shorts and not  be looked at as if I should be handed a sledgehammer and a wrecking ball.

3// I say Ray-min instead of Rah-min when talking about Ramen noodles. I am, to this day, the only person I know that says it this way. Besides my parents of course since, you know, it's their fault I've been made fun of my whole life for saying it wrong.

4// I hate reading. There I said it and I'm not ashamed. There are so many books that I have absolutely loved. Like for instance, Harry Potter (duh), Hunger Games, everything by Jodi Picoult, Amber Brown Is Not A Crayon (hello throwback). But even when I'm thoroughly immersed and loving the story, I still hate the physical act of reading. I will count how many pages I have left in the chapter every single time.

5// I was an extremely late bloomer back in the day. I was always the shortest in my gym class when we had to line up by height. I didn't get my twelve year old molars (or my period) until I was sixteen. I didn't need a bra until well into high school and I still don't really need one now. I didn't get my braces off until my freshman year of college (and was given the nickname "Touch of Innocence" by the frat boys because of it). And now we've reached today when I'm still experiencing symptoms of a twelve year old.

6// I will barf on the spot if you give me raspberry flavored vodka. Raspberry Smirnoff Ice's were my gateway to all things alcohol, followed by the vodka version once I stopped hiding my binge drinking from the parentals. Let's just say all that raspberry didn't stay down then and it most certainly isn't going to stay down now. Never again.

7// I will never understand why there needs to be a seam in the toes of socks. That shit hurts when your toes get all smushed against it in your shoes. And seeing as how socks continuously fall down, I think it'd be smarter to add that elastic seam to the top so the damn things don't decide to have a slumber party at the bottom of your shoe after ten minutes of wearing them.

8// I swear by eyebrow threading even though I cry every time I do it. I honestly believe it's the quickest, cheapest, and easiest way to make yourself look pretty (besides getting a tan of course) but I have rivers of water flooding down my face every single time I go. This is why it's important to get it done before you put makeup on instead of after or you'll have some eyes that resemble Cee-Lo's from last night's The Voice.

And my last favorite part of blogging is, duh, the best friend I've made along the way. Whitney has a HUGE announcement to share with you all today. I'm so excited that her blog baby has finally been born because I wasn't sure how much longer I was going to be able to keep it a secret. I'm so proud that she's actually putting her fashion degree to good use (that makes one of us) (although I do have my own idea brewing) because she's now selling t-shirts! T-shirts like this one.

And it's your job to head on over to her site and get one all to yourself. That isn't a request, it's an order.  GO!
