25 Things You Didn’t Know About Me

While reading through US Weekly this morning, I caught Alanis Morisette’s 25 things you didn’t know about me page.  I love this page in this magazine and love reading random facts about celebrities.  Although I am not anyone famous, I figure I’d make out my own list of 25 random things you didn’t know about me!

    I already knew a lot of these about you, but Ive known you for about 3 years now so that’s why!

    Our college pics look SO similiar.

    We have tons in common—-partied a lot, been together with the man 4 years, and are just awesome.

  2. Hehe, college is a time for parties. Period. You only get to do it once 😉

  3. Loved this. Love getting to know the blogger behind the blog. Happy Anniversary! I am totally with you on the sports thing. I wish I could get into football b/c it gets kind of lonely during football season.

  4. I love this post!!! Its fun and its great to learn so much about you! I think Im going to do the same thing on a post, hope you dont mind !

  5. aww i love the pics of you and andy! 🙂 I feel like I have known you for 2 of those 4 years 🙂 haha so great to see you guys finally living together and super happy!

    Something about me: I cannot sleep without a fan. I need the noise to fall asleep. I downloaded an app on my iphone that is just white noise so if i ever am at a hotel or staying at someones house with no fan, I have the noise

  6. This was fun to read! I don’t like super muscley guys either, especially meatheads who spend all their time in the gym.

  7. That was awesome. HMMM Something about me…..I dream of one day opening up a bookstore/coffee shop. Did that count?

  8. Love this post! I don’t like overly muscled dudes either. I love trashy reality shows. And I partied a lot in college too, but wasn’t in a sorority.

    Happy 4 years! You look stunning in that white dress.

  9. I loved reading this post and learning more about you! 🙂

    Isn’t it funny how things we used to hate about ourselves (for example, you with your height) are now things we love?!?!?

  10. I was a veggie for 14 years and stopped for the same reasons you did, though I still mostly prefer veggie meals 🙂

  11. Great post – I always love hearing little facts about others. I too was born in Philly, and I was raised there. I live in NYC now but I will always be a Philly girl at heart.

    One random fact about me – I have 10 brothers and sisters. All from the same parents. There are 7 girls and 4 boys and when my mom started naming us her original plan was to name each girl “Mary FILL IN THE BLANK” after the virgin mother. She is a total holy roller. Fortunately for me, my dad put an end to that after she named the first two girls Mary. Hahaha. That was a little more than a fact, but I had to share.

  12. Love all your facts!
    My facts:
    1. I never drank once in college.
    2. I’m having a baby in 4 weeks.
    3. I moved to a small town in Iowa 1 year ago and I HATE it.
    4. I’ll forever be a big city girl. Miss you Minneapolis.
    5. I have a degree in Exercise Science but have done nothing with it!

  14. Happy 4 years! I remember being there, and then 2 years we were married. I loved learning the 25 things about you. My random fact is that I am a preacher’s kid.
