Me

After doing this post and getting lots of comments from current readers I realized I have a lot of new readers around here.

Many people mentioned that they didn't start reading until I was pregnant or after Eli was born, so I thought I would do a little "about me" post.


1. Luke is the only person I've dated and is also the only person I've kissed. I'm a one man woman.

2. I always thought and planned to be a full time stay at home mom but right now I enjoy my part-time working schedule. Who knows what the future holds, but right now this really works for us.

3. I do not like the dark. At all. Sometimes when I wake up at night out of habit I turn on the TV for light. Luke does not like this about me.

4. I pick all the seams out of my shirts, with my fingernails. I try and stop myself on nice shirts but sometimes it just happens. I've found myself picking the seams out of Eli's shirts. I may need a 12 step program for this.

5. I hate milk. The only way I'll even half way put it in my mouth is with cereal and I still pour it off my spoon before putting the spoon in my mouth.

6. Titanic is my favorite movie and you BETTER BELIEVE I will be in theaters in April to see it in 3D. Maybe more than once.

7. I always have trouble deciding if I want to go light or dark with my hair. It's one of the biggest dilemmas of my life. I currently can't decide what to do AGAIN. I've even blogged about it here.

8. I consider my relationship with Christ the most important, vital part of my life, however I struggle with having a consistent devotional time everyday.

9. Before having Eli I was convinced my two lung collapses were much more painful than contractions. I stand corrected. I stand corrected.

10. I am a total night owl. Some nights I stay up till 1:00 or 2:00 only to wake up around 6:00 or 6:30 with Eli and I'm not even tired throughout the day. I can get so much done between 10:00 and 1:00.

So that's a little about me. If you are new welcome to my life, you will get a WIDE assortment of nonsense on this blog!

I'm not even going to tell you how long I looked for a current picture of me alone, it doesn't exist, I'm always behind the camera, so I give you this one with my sweet bubba-boo from December, sans makeup. That's just how we roll around here.

Worst commenter ever right here, but I've been reading for quite awhile. Anyhow, I had to stop in and say I am the SAME way with milk and people think I'm nuts. My husband says I'm a waster since I leave a bowlful of milk after I eat cereal. The smell of it even makes me gag.
Love the pic...so fun!

Laura said...

thanks for this post! i started reading after you had eli! i'm 28 years old and i'm afraid of the dark myself. :)

Ashlynn said...

I'm glad to know I'm not the only crazy person staying up that late! You are so right. We can get so much done between those hours!

Lauren said...

LOVE the pic of you and Eli!! I am with you on the milk and night owl stuff!! xoxo

Kodi said...

Almost all of these could've been about me. Nathan was my first boyfriend...and other than one douchebag mauling me at a movie he is the only boy I've kissed. :) I stay up late, but I DO feel tired...although I think that it's maybe partially in my head because days like today I push through and stay up late again. I like your hair now.

Susan said...

Do you drink another knd of milk? Just curious. Also, you are gorgeous sans makeup!!

Mere said...

I have been reading your blog for a long time (since before you were pregnant), but I am a terrible commenter! I loved this post though. I always love to read "about me" posts for some reason. It is always fun to learn little fun facts about people.

I am a huge night owl also, but I am terrible at getting up in the mornings. Having kids doesn't help at all. :) Love that pic of you and Eli. Too cute!

Olivia said...

I am totally the same way with milk! I think I drank it so much when I was little that I absolutely cannot STAND it now. I'll eat it with cereal, but I always drain the milk off the spoon before it goes in my mouth. When I eat Frosted Mini Wheats I literally squish the wheats on the side of my bowl to squeeze every last bit of milk out! LOL, I swear I'm probably one of the weirdest people when it comes to milk. HOWEVER....Milkshakes? Yes, please.

Laurel said...

Hi there, I have been reading since about November of 2011, I love your blog! I am from Ireland, are many other readers from Europe or mostly American?
I think your hair looks best when its light! xxx

Amanda said...

I sympathize completely with 1, 6, and 10!
-My husband is only the second person I've dated or kissed.
-I will be right there in theaters for Titanic myself in April! When it came out before (when I was in MIDDLE SCHOOL- so hard to believe) I saw it 14 times in theaters!
-I'm up late every night too. Part of that has to do with my new baby boy- but I enjoy our late nights.

Ditto on the milk girl. You know I LOVE your blog. You make me laugh! And, your ELI is so stinkin' adorable!

Matt and Meg said...

Really enjoy reading your blog!

Wendy said...

I'm totally there with you on Titanic! I CANNOT wait for it to come out in 3D!!

Gray and Sara said...

I am new to your blog! I have a son 10 months old so I'm enjoying reading! I'm currently in the to have or not to have a big 1 year bash...are you glad you did? (I'm not the best planner!) :(
Also, lung collapse? I've had multiple myself!! Were you in an accident? Mine were spontaneous, finally had a surgery that really fixed it! Talk about PAINFUL!!! I had a planned c-section so I can't relate with the contractions!

Melissa said...

Hi, I've been reading for a few months, but I don't think I've ever commented. My little girl is turning one on the 26th. I just has to comment and say that my husband is also the only guy I have ever dated or kissed. Awesome! :)

Elizabeth said...

I am the SAME way about milk!! HATE it!! Always have!! AND I am totally a night owl like you!! Thanks for posting an "about me"!!

Perfectly Imperfect said...

I feel like I knew all of this. Cannot decide if that makes me really attentive or a stalker. hmmm ;)

Mateya said...

I am the same way with milk. I can't stand it!

Faith said...

Hi! I've been reading for a few months. I am one of the worst commenters too! I either don't have anything good to say or nada at all! Love reading your blog and love your genuineness and sense of humor.

Nicole said...

OH MY!! That picture is amazing! Eli is so adorable!!

Sara said...

I always love "about me" posts! I'm the same way with milk...I gag at the smell of it. Love that picture of you and Eli - adorable!!

Amy said...

i love this post. i am a newer reader (just a few months) so it was nice to learn more about you. i am a total night owl, too. i can get by on 4-5 hrs sleep easily. i'll stay up all hours of the night just to wake up at the crack of dawn w/my two. it's a blessing and a curse - ha! :)

Adrienne said...

You are so adorable! Thank you for sharing these little bits about you :-D

Well, I'm NOT the same way with milk, like most of the other commenters, but I AM the same way about turning on the TV in the middle of the night for the light. My mind runs away with me a LOT LESS when I'm not in the dark. Ridiculous?
