The Facts of Yours Truly

I'm linking up with Whitney
because 1. I am currently in love with her and her blog
and 2. you know I can't come with my own ideas every day.

The Facts of Marianna:

1. I never ever sit on my couch without being wrapped up in a blanket.
This is partly because I love to be snuggled in 
and partly because my husband keeps our house fa-reeeeezing.

2. I have to sleep with a pillow up against my back.

3. I ate drinking water or soda out of plastic bottles.
I'd much rather prefer soda in a can (with a coozie)
and water in a Turvis Tumbler, ice, and a straw.

4. I hate when drinks sweat (hence the Turvis and the coozie) 
and I hate drinking without a straw.

5. Elephants are my favorite animal.
And I plan to ride one before I die.

6. I have rheumatoid arthritis.

7. Sometimes I practice conversations while I straighten my hair in the morning.
Not often though, because it usually makes me late.

8. I don't know how to work our TV.

9. I watch the local news every morning with my dog
while I eat my breakfast.
Except I still never know what's going on in the world.

10. I have a tendency to think I can do almost anything better than whoever is already doing it.

11. I try not to feed into those thoughts,
because I realize rationally, they're not true.

12. My least favorite thing to do is car shop.
Coincidentally, it's my husband's favorite.

13. I've been eating gluten-free since New Years.
I've only cheated once (I had Mexican last week).
And I actually don't really hate it. 

14. Robbie gave me Willow as an early college graduation present
and at first, I was mad about it,
mainly because I was terrified of having that kind of responsibility. 

15. I'm addicted to my iPhone. 
I realize admitting this is the first step to recovery.

16. I can't sleep without a fan on.
No matter how cold it is.

17. I found out I needed glasses one night
when I was watching Superman with my parents.
I was 4. 

18. Three day weekends make me happier
than almost anything else.

19. I never read.
Not because I don't like it, 
just because I don't ever make time for it.

20. Thanks to Bonnie and the biggest blogging book club ever,
 the above fact will hopefully be changing soon. 

Your turn!
What Facts of You would you share if you could?



  1. I rode an elephant at a fair once. Not so cool. I think I need to do it in India or something.

    I have no idea what's going on in the world either. I feel like an idiot quite frequently.

    Three day weekends confuse the hell out of me but boy do I loveee them!

  2. I am the same way about fans! I HAVE to have one in my room to sleep, I tried once to just use a noise machine but no such luck.
    Also, I nominated you for the Liebster Award today on my blog :)

  3. oh my goodness we are a lot alike- besides the fact I am just the same on #1-4, I also can't sleep without a fan, have arthritus at a young age.. and LOVE straws and blankets more than anything! wow. :) Hope your having a great day!

    1. Oh and have I ever mentioned my last name is Dunn... well for 3 more months! You can add that to our "alikes" :)

  4. I have the best daughter and love reading her blog! She is very entertaining and makes me smile so i am always in a better mood after i read her blog!
