5 Fun Facts About Me

February 2, 2018

pink duster, burgandy scarf, beige boots, over the knee boots, 5 fun facts

Happy Friday!! Since we are approaching the weekend I thought we could lighten things up a bit today. Last week a few of my fellow blogger friends Angela,Β Dawn,Β Molly,Β Nicole, and TarynΒ challenged me on my Instagram to share 5 fun facts about myself. Now I don’t know about anybody else, but I had the hardest time coming up with anything! It was quickly apparent that I am not all that exciting. :/

Anybody that knows me, knows that I am not the greatest participant when it comes to these kind of things. BUT I am always looking for blog post ideas and figured why not make this one. So here we go. πŸ™‚

5 Fun-ish Facts About Me:

One | I am not that “fun”. I don’t like games, I’m not all that adventurous, and I’m quite content just being home without saying much of anything. However I do like to think I am an absolute joy to be around….in a relaxed, reserved, and low-key kinda way. πŸ˜‰

Two | My laugh in the photo above is fake. The shot was taken by my friendΒ Dawn P. DarnellΒ during my blogging internship a year ago. I was learning all the tips and tricks on how to pull off a bright smile for the camera since a “big cheese” in front of a lens is not my forte. How’d I do? πŸ˜‰

Three | I wanted to be Matlock when I grew up. Matlock was the bomb! I wasn’t keen on the whole argumentative/debate aspect of his job in the courtroom, but the detective/investigative part seemed super cool. Yes, the plots were a bit cheesy and the “bad guy” could be discovered within 5 minutes of the show. But the fact that I always picked the right prospect that “did it” left me feeling pretty confident in my investigation skills as a child. I was a natural! πŸ˜‰

Four | I married my high school sweat heart and we are celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary this summer. We are currently trying to narrow down a nice little getaway trip to celebrate. Any suggestions? Oh! And do you babysit?

Five | I almost always cry or at least get teary eyed when I see someone else cry. It can be frustrating…

Well there you have it! I hope this gives you a glimpse into my inner core. πŸ™‚

Enough about me. Your turn….share a fun fact about yourself in the comments below.Β

      Thank you Kristina. We have heard great things about St. Lucia….definitely need to look into it. Thank you for the suggestion.

  • Reply Azanique February 4, 2018 at 11:03 pm

    I totally don’t think I’m sure “fun” either! I love being around others and enjoying bonding time but also am content with just relaxing with my loved ones at home without having to do much.

      Yes….I totally get that. Thank you for reading Azanique.

  • Reply Alyssa Dawson February 5, 2018 at 9:45 am

    HEY! I don’t like games either! I thnk it’s because I’m just shy and you always have to be outgoing and talkative when you play them. Also, congrats on 10 years! I hope you find a fun place to go!

    • Reply Annette February 5, 2018 at 10:26 am

      Thank you Alyssa. Yes, I can so relate. Games definitely require an outgoing mindset that’s not necessarily my favorite.
