Happy (almost) Birthday to Me

Hi, my name is Allison. 

And unless you've been living under a rock OR ignoring me, you'd know that I turn 23 tomorrow! My favorite holiday=my birthday. That and Christmas. Anyways. Maybe I'll get tired of celebrating my birthday and making sure everyone knows about it as I get older, but I hope not!

So in honor of my 23rd birthday, here are 23 things you may not know about me!

  • I love all things pink. This is inclusive of all things Lilly and other designer things that I will one day buy/receive.

  • I take way too many selfies. (with Laney and while driving) #oops

  • I don't know how to curl my hair--you know the wavy curls that are in--but I was born with realllyyy curly hair. That's why it's ALWAYS straight!

  • I eat icing for breakfast sometimes. Just a giant spoon of icing. 

  • Which is why I'm always complaining that I need to lose 5-10 pounds. At least I'm admitting I have a problem.

  • I hate to clean and don't even own a vacuum cleaner.  For the record though, I have an iron, Joshua just had to buy the actual ironing board. (Hint: I never iron and the man would iron his socks if I wouldn't tease him about it)

  • I'm addicted to Grande Iced Vanilla Macchiatos with an extra pump of vanilla
  • I love my puppychild, Laney, but will never stop trying to convince Joshua that she needs a puppy brother/sister so she won't be spoiled. He keeps saying no.

  • I (recently) love wearing red lipstick.

  • I frequently talk to Laney like she can understand me and answer me. Spoiler Alert: She cannot.

  • I'm mostly a diva, but I care about people too.

  • I can't wait to be a homeowner. Josh: you make the money and I will spend it all decorating. Ok? Sounds like a plan to me!

  • I'd love to make a business out of telling people what looks good and what doesn't. Can that be a thing?

  • I'm clumsy and drop my iPhone ALL the time. 

  • I can't own expensive sunglasses. Like RayBans (even though I want them so bad). They will likely be stepped on, sat on, or lost.

  • I really really want to go to Europe.

  • My favorite movie (this week) is Father of the Bride.

  • My mom, little sisters, and me all wear the same size clothes. It's like having four closets to shop from!

  • "BAE" gets on my nerves. Like it doesn't make sense people, stop saying it.

  • I love love love little kid movies. Give me Disney over a horror movie any day.

  • I had horribly tragic fashion sense and hair style choices as a kid growing up in the 90s. Like it was bad.

  • I'm the oldest of three (and sometimes don't look or act like it) #notsorry

  • I love LOVE--which is why I like planning weddings and can't wait to get married. Oh and plus I love Josh too, duh. 

Yay for being almost 23!
