If you really knew me...

I've seen these posts floating around blogland for quite sometime now
and at first, I really resisted the urge to participate (I'm not sure why, it's a really neat idea)
until now.

I'm not sure if it's the lack of blog inspiration I've had lately
or just because I love a good bandwagon to jump on.
But either way, I'm here and I'm ready to spill

If you really knew me...

...you'd know that I have to sleep with a fan on, no matter how cold it is.

...you'd know that I met my college roommate (and very best friend) on Facebook.

....you'd know that I almost always have a Turvis tumbler full of ice water,
and I can only drink that ice water out of a straw.

...you'd know that I started dating Robbie when I was 14 years old.

I cheated a little - this is my 16th birthday, but still...

If you really knew me...

...you'd know that I backed into a pole in my own driveway when I was 17. 

...you'd know that I took gymnastics for four years and can still barely do a cartwheel. 
(I grow increasingly jealous of Gabby Douglas daily.)

...you'd know that, no matter how hard I try not to,  I tend to kill every plant I've ever owned. 

Before and After: over the course of four days.

If you really knew me....

...you'd know that I have rheumatoid arthritis and have to get a shot every other week because of it.

...you'd know that I can't tell jokes because I always only remember the punchline.

...you'd know that, unlike every other person in the world apparently, I hate Shark Week. They're not fascinating - just scary.

{Insert scary shark picture here. I'm not brave enough to google an image on my own. Seriously.}

If you really knew me...

...you'd know that I over think everything and tend to get anxious about really unnecessary things.

....you'd know that I only like Diet Coke out of a can, not a bottle
and I have to always use a coozie.

...you'd know that, much to my surprise, I am obsessed with my dogs. 

But really, how could I not be...look at those faces.



  1. I laughed so hard at this. My partner, who I've been dating since I was 15, got me addicted to a fan at night...alllll year round. I also over think things...luckily my partner is so chilled that he calms me down and relaxes me...must be a girl thing. I love your blog and getting to know you. I have a if you really knew me waiting to go for net week :)

  2. Love this! I sleep with a fan too, I ran into my garage on the day I got my license, and I played piano FOREVER and now I don't remember how to play. So don't feel bad!

    p.s. didn't we take piano from the same teacher?
