Ten Things You May Not Know About Me

I've noticed a few new faces around here since my blog got a face lift and a new domain #soofficial. It's amazing what a few tweaks will/can do! So, I thought I'd do a re-introduction of sorts. Yea sure there's my about page, but here's your chance to get to know me a little bit better. By the way, these are all the most random things ever.


1. I love the smell of fresh cut grass and coffee. I could sit in a coffee shop for hours and just enjoy the (free) smells. And fresh cut grass reminds me of my childhood for some reason. Never have I ever, actually cut grass though.

2. I'm seriously addicted to my iPhone. So much so, that when I'm hanging out with the boyfriend, he frequently has to take it away from me. I have to charge it at least three times a day, sleep with it next to me, and can't go to another room without it with me. It's sad. But, at least I'm admitting I have a problem?

3. My nicknames are: Little One, Little Bit, and Big Al. I'm under five feet and 105 pounds so it makes sense that people would call me little anything--Big Al was an ironic nickname from when I was eight years old and played softball and was the smallest one on the team. I guess it made me seem tough.

4. I love sushi (rolls + raw fish). I could eat sushi for every meal, everyday. In fact, I really want some right now. That being said, the rest of my diet is like a six year old's. (think chicken nuggets)

5. I've never broken any bones in my body. Sprained and jammed, yes. Broken, no.

6. Someone mistakenly thought I was a HIGH SCHOOL athlete this weekend at the farmer's market. I get high school, but athlete? Lol. Also, I'm 23--almost 24.

7. Favorite songs currently include Paradise City by Guns N Roses and anything by the Beastie Boys. Oh, also Free Falling and Piano Man.  I'm experiencing a musical existential crisis--the 80s are actually pretty cool, even if I was born in the 90s.

8. My youngest sister, who is 13, just passed down one of her coat's to me this weekend. It's a size 10-12 (in kids) and it fits. See # 3.

9. I'm a fast learner when it comes to song lyrics and anything technology. I'm basically tech support at work and at home.

10. I don't know how to braid my own hair. They boyfriend can braid my hair better than I can! Any time you see me with a braid, someone else did it for me!

  2. I sleep so much better with my phone in the bed next me, not on the night stand, it has to be in the bed. And I literally can't sleep unless it's in arm's distance of me

  3. My iPhone and I never leave each other's sights... I think that may be a problem. I enjoyed getting to know you more. Coffee is definitely one of my favorite scents.

  5. I'm just over 5 feet so I totally feel you! I have to get basically everything tailored to fit me height-wise. And I can't braid either - it's so hard! I'm just not willing to put in the work. I can basic braid my own hair but it is not pretty. Such a fun getting-to-know-you post!

  6. I love reading these little facts about people because you learn such odd information but it's always a good view of who the person is! I agree with you about coffee and fresh cut grass being wonderful smells!

  7. I'm the same with song lyrics. Whether I love or hate a song, I know the words. Blessing and a curse. And shoot people think I'm 19 all the time and I'm turning 26 this year......so yeah I totally understand.

  10. I still have no idea how to braid my hair, I always just clip it back if I want a different look. AH! I love the smell of fresh cut grass too, but it makes me sneeze in the Spring time. I'm weird, but I love the smell of cows when driving through the back roads of Georgia :D
