Let's Get Personal
So I thought with the recent influx of followers it would be a good time to do a "get to know me" post of sorts.
Here are some things you might not know about me after taking a quick glance at my blog:
For some reason, I can't be quiet when the situation calls for it. When Carter was younger it would take a serious marathon of squats/bouncing/rocking/singing/white noise and binky-losing-and-replacing to get him to fall asleep. And then, the slightest little noise would sabotage the whole event. Anytime Tom was trying to put him to sleep I would either step on the one creaky spot on the floor of our bedroom, kick a musical toy or knock over a block tower. I'm not typically a clumsy person, but when it came to Carter being aalllmmoosst asleep, all my coordination went out the window.
I hate, hate, hate the smell of laundry detergent (uuugghhh, why must it be so strong?? no matter what, every time I run outside, my neighbors are doing their laundry and that's all I can smell. It seriously turns my stomach. If I had to choose a scent, it would be some vanilla-y kind of smell and none of this fake "fresh" scent nonsense).
Alright, now for the real honesty.
Don't judge me for this one...
I sometimes daydream that *NSYNC has a reunion tour and that all of my friends, cousins and I rent a huge limo, buy tons of champagne, get front row seats right next to the stage and sing our hearts out to I Want You Back and It Makes Me Ill . This reminds me, we all had a pretty awesome choreographed dance to I Want You Back, back in the day. We would perform it at the beach for our parents; once four of us performed it at a summer basketball camp to 500 people (we were so cool).
(Tom definitely just judged me for writing that. I don't care. It's the truth, I'm not ashamed.)
Oh, and here's my cooking mishap for the night:
+I burned green beans. Who does that?? That's like the easiest food not to burn.
I already have another cooking mishap to share, but I think it deserves to stand alone so I'll save it for my next post ; ) Next time I'll try to take a picture. I think I'm going to start photographing all of my food disasters. They'll probably make you feel like a really good cook.
That's all I have for you.
Bye, bye, bye.
