20 things

  1. I used to really dislike chocolate but something about being pregnant changed and now I like it (sort of). I like chocolate candy, but not chocolate cake, ice cream, milkshakes, or other desserts... #weird. 
  2. I am such a homebody and I love that I get to work from home. It's especially nice during colder months and I can work on the couch with a cozy throw and endless amounts of coffee. 
  3. I am a morning person and usually wake up by 5 am to work before the kids/husband wakes up. I've never really been able to sleep in. 
  4. I get really freaked out by unnaturally small things... baby carrots that are too small, small grapes, baby corn (the worst!) 
  5. I used to be a kindergarten teacher and now I'm an educational game designer. Never in a million years would I have thought this would be my job in life, but I absolutely love it (most days!) and I'm so thankful for this flexible, creative job. 
  6. I stress eat sour candy... It's something I need to quit but it's been my coping mechanism for years and years. I'm trying to give up sugar this year though... We'll see!
  7. I am very resistant to watching new shows... Nick often previews a new show first and then twists my arm to try watching them. Typically, I love every show he's convinced me to watch. 
  8. I have always loved painting, drawing, and art. I'm not some great artist, but I love it! I was one class away from an art minor in college and still paint from time to time. Some days I dream of having my own art studio. 
  9. I would rather read than watch TV. Unless I'm really hooked on a show, if Nick is out at night, I always read instead of turning on the TV. 
  10. Sometimes when I'm feeling sad, I play Christmas music, no matter the time of year. I've been doing this my whole adult life. Low day in June? Turn on the Christmas tunes. 
  11. I really try hard to see the good in people and if some stranger does something jerky (like cuts me off in traffic), I will make up an elaborate story in my head about why they acted the way they did. They just found out their wife is at the hospital about to deliver the baby early, blah blah blah... (Side note, this annoys my husband) 
  12. My favorite movie is Father of the Bride. The best! 
  13. I'm left-handed. 
  14. I'm the oldest of 4 and I love having a big family. 
  15. I don't have wisdom teeth... I was just born without them #lucky
  16. I hate when my food touches.... Like if they made those separated plates for adults, I'd be all about them. 
  17. I absolutely love holidays... all of them. It's so fun to decorate, and dress the kids in festive outfits, and eat fun foods. 
  18. I'm almost always cold and have my seat heater, steering wheel heater turned up all the way. I also sleep with 3 comforters... 
  19. I've been to almost every state in the country. My family took several cross-country road trips and many flights when I was growing up. 
  20. I went to an all-girls high school and loved it so much! It was such a great experience for someone who is typically a little more shy. Not the average high school experience, but one I'm so grateful to have had.
