Twenty Six


ASOS dress, Jimmy Choo heels, Betsy Johnson necklace

Hello, stranger! I want to first start off by saying thank you so much for all the sweet birthday wishes. I could not have asked for a more fun, quality and special couple of days spent in the City with a handful of my favorite people. We covered a good amount of San Francisco by foot, stopping every few blocks for drinks or a snack, went out to an incredible Spanish dinner that reminded me of my time in Spain, made a family dinner and sat around the table laughing for hours and maybe dropped it like it was hot in the Castro? All I know is I am completely swelled with happiness to have such amazing friends and family in my life. THANK YOU!

 I wanted to get this post up before I left to San Francisco but it wasn’t in the cards. In follow up to last year’s birthday post, I figured it was better late than never to know 26 additional quirky things  you might not know about me.

1. My friends make fun of me for wearing gloves when I wash dishes.

2. I get really indecisive about small things.

3. I’ve never broken a bone (knock on wood.)

4. I may or may not be listening to Justin Bieber right now.

5. I cry a little when I see roadkill.

6. I used to be a fat kid.

7. Growing up I wanted to be a marine biologist.

8. I don’t like saying the singular form of “eggs.”

9. When I was 18 I competed in the Miss California, USA pageant.

10. Until about six months ago I thought a barracuda was a land animal.

11. I hate folding sheets.

12. I’ve traveled to more places internationally than I know state capitals – either completely embarrassing or really cool.

13. In 2007 I lived in New York City for a summer doing a fashion design internship.

14. I have a crush on Australian accents.

15. I am the worst joke teller.

16. From time to time I like me a good cigar.

17. When I was a kid my favorite food was rice and ketchup.

18. I will not touch an escalator handrail.

19. The first movie I ever cried at was ET.

20. If I could travel back in time I’d go back to when dinosaurs were alive.

21. I tell my dog she’s my best friend every day.

22. While brushing my teeth I am usually simultaneously doing something else.

23. I’m almost always listening to music.

24. During my sophomore year of high school I chopped my hair off. Like Victoria Beckham style, minus the Victoria Beckham.

25. I keep cards people give me.

26. I was once a big, stuffed bluebird in a local play.

*Disclaimer: Unless you share something about yourself these things are never to be used against me for your laughing pleasure or anyone else’s.

Thank you so much for reading!

    You know I’m going to use these against you, in fact, I think I already do. So, for me, I often sleep with my unfolded clean clothes on my bed cause I’m too lazy to put them away. So does Amanda!
