You You You Oughta Know (aka One of Those 6 Things You Should Know About Me Posts)

Bonus Fun Fact: I didn’t learn to ride a bike until I was 23

Over the past week or two, I’ve been seeing tons of bloggers posting these “6 Things You Should Know About Me” posts, where they answer 6 questions, and tag other bloggers to do the same thing. Well, I wasn’t tagged (pity party of 1 over here), but I still want to participate, because who doesn’t love talking about themselves?

Also, I’m going to buck the system, and instead of tagging a few individual bloggers, I’m officially tagging all of my fellow bloggers who weren’t tagged specifically, because let’s face it, no one should be left out in blogland.

1. Favorite thing to do in your spare time?
I really love to read and watch TV in my free time. I mostly stick to reading fiction, but I also love news articles and reading any and every theory about the final episodes of Breaking Bad, which is a nice segue into how much I love watching TV. Is it ridiculous? Maybe, but I don’t watch many movies, so I feel like I can justify it. I love getting hooked on a new series with TJ, to the point where it consumes most of our nights and weekends. It’s fun and relaxing, which is what spare time is all about!

2. Blogs you’re loving right now?
It’s hard to pick just a few, but I really love:
Venus Trapped in Mars
How Sweet It Is
Helene in Between
Mal Smiles
Love, Fun and Football

3. Favorite piece of jewelry {other than your engagement/wedding ring} and why?
I really love my watch, because it reminds of celebrating our first anniversary. I got it just a few days before, and I wore it during our whole trip to DC. I love that it goes with anything, and isn’t too heavy. Bonus, it’s on sale right now! Also, shameless plug to a post I recently did all about my favorite pieces of jewelry.

4. What’s something you love about yourself?
I’m really good at staying calm in serious situations. If I stub my toe, I act like the world is ending, but when something really serious is happening, I’m cool as a cucumber. A maxi dress breaks my nose? (Man, I really need to tell that story.) I’m calmly making jokes as TJ drives us to the hospital. TJ almost dies after a particularly intense trip to the beach? (Another fun story!) I somehow morph into a calm nurse-like being. It’s strange, but great – I know I can count on myself when things get real.

5. If money were no question, what would you purchase?
Pittsburgh Steelers season tickets, and plane tickets to go to Pittsburgh to watch all of the home games. Actually, let’s take it one step further – I’d also purchase tickets to all of the away games (and all of the plane tickets to those places too). I guess ideally I’d work 7 months out of the year, and spend the other 5 months traveling around the country to go to all the games? I’m sure TJ is glad we’re not super rich, because he much prefers to watch the games on TV. Weird.

6. Tell us something we don’t know about you. 
I can pick up just about anything with my toes. They’re kind of like an extra set of fingers? They’re all pretty long – every toe but the last one is longer than my big toe, and I can move the four other toes independently of my big toe. They’re also weirdly strong. Maybe they’re double jointed like my fingers?

Like I mentioned above, I’m tagging all of the bloggers who weren’t individually tagged, but still want to play along!

Pick 6 of these questions to answer:
1. Blogs you’re loving right now?
2. Is this how you imagined your life would be?
3. What’s something you love about yourself?
4. How did your blog come about?
5. Tell us something we don’t know about you.
6. If money were no question, what would you purchase?
7. Favorite thing to do in your spare time?
8. What’s your biggest struggle in life?
9. Favorite piece of jewelry {other than your engagement/wedding ring} and why?

    First off- thanks for the shout-out! 😉 I love your blog too! And I love how much you love football even if you root for my LEAST favorite team in the world. Jared and I always try to get to one away game a year if we can, I’d love to see all the NFL stadiums eventually! 🙂

    I LOVE THAT WE ARE BOTH SUCH HUGE STEELERS FANS. I’m trying to convince my boyf to gift me Steelers tickets to the game vs. Detroit (where I live) that’s in Pitt. It’s a work in progress. Nice getting to know you, lady! <3

    PLEASE tell me your post title is referring to Alanis! I love it. And I might consider myself tagged, because I was also left out of this fact-sharing shindig. So we can have a pity party of two? 🙂

    I’m stopping by from Kisses & Croissants! I LOVE your blog name and I don’t know why I wasn’t already following you because rainstorms and love notes are two of my favorite things! 🙂
