20 Random Facts About Myself

1. I’m an introvert. I will write a post explaining what that means (and doesn’t mean) shortly.
2. I’m convinced I have several disorders (ADHD, OCD, something else), but I’m working towards trying to undo them with real food and holistic approaches.
3. I’m very impulsive. Daddy can’t stand it. See #2.
4. I’m terrible at anything that requires multiple steps. Math is the bane of my existence. See #2.
5. I’m a kinesthetic learner. See #2.
6. I think a lot and perhaps over-analyze things. See #2.
7. I have Bitchy Resting Face. I can’t help it. It’s to prevent having a look of derp on my face. I do try to smile at people who seem approachable.
8. Good food and laughs make me extremely happy.
9. I have a strong interest in traveling. Other cultures fascinate me.
10. Things that are “off” or uneven (that can be easily fixed) bother me. Crooked wall hangings annoy me. I need symmetry!
11. I couldn’t stand kids until I had you guys. Now, other people’s kids are tolerable, but I still prefer my own (close friends & family count too). LOL.
12. I’m sensitive and darn near ashamed to admit it. Over the years, I’ve built up a pretty solid core, but sometimes it weakens. :-/
13. I have a poor sense of direction and a fear of being lost. Part of that fear is embarrassment. See #2 and #12.
14. I like big butts… and …I cannot lie.
15. I’m a free spirit. I love going wherever the wind takes me. Conformity is not an option thankyouverymuchly.
16. I never thought I would be saying this, but I believe my purpose is to be a mother.
17. Shades of turquoise are my absolute favorite colors.
18. I often fantasize about living on an island. I’m obsessed with all things tropical, beachy, and nautical.
19. I love plants and gardening… vintage furnishings and clothing too.
20. I eat raw spaghetti and rice noodles. I have to eat at least one from the package, each and every time. Been doing it since I was a little girl.

BONUS: I love taking car selfies.

Hey Sheena! I love your site! It's filled with all kinds of niceness.

I knew some of these things about you (remember the JA trip) and it was good to learn of the others. You and your family are toooo cute!

What an awesome idea! I bet people read the list and go, "I would have never thought that" or "I knew it!" Either way, it's always fun getting to know more about people you admire.

BTW, I love the photo responses you have in your comments. You're always coming up with a clever way to interact.

So SO glad you're playing along! I can't wait to learn more about you. I laughed reading your list. "bitchy resting face"... too funny! And I diagnose myself with things too. Teal is becoming a favorite color of mine but I still love pink. And so funny about you and raw pasta. haha. Can't wait to read more! Thanks for linking up.

PS: I kinda think our boys look a little alike... But maybe it's just me.

I love turquoise too! Well that an fuschia, it's a tie. Love your list, I totally get ya!

I love fuschia flowers and nail polish. I gravitate towards earth tones though.

I DO have a fuschia shirt and sandals.

And apparently a watch I've forgotten about. LOL
