35 Fun Facts About Me

27 Mar

35 fun facts

Today I turn 35. There will not be much fanfare, it’ll be just another day. In fact, there probably won’t even be cake.

The boys have an event at karate and I have a big race coming up so there probably won’t be too much celebrating. Oh well, Spring Break is just around the corner so I’ll have a week to celebrate my entrance into this world.

There is one tradition that I wanted to keep going and that’s sharing some “fun” facts about me with all of you. So in celebration of my 35th birthday I give you 35 facts about me.

1) When I travel by air my feet swell.

2) Much like a dog, I sweat from my feet.

3) I add chia seeds to my cereal, oatmeal and smoothies.

4) I chat with my three closest friends, in one group chat everyday and have for as long as I can remember.

5) Out of those three friends, I’ve only met two of them in person once and the third I’ve never met.

12) Both of my surgeries happened in the month of July.

13) My name was supposed to be Molly but my father vetoed that.

14) I love green tea.

17) I was born in Wisconsin.

18) I lived in five different cities by the time I was eight.

26) I only wear Tifosi sunglasses.

27) I yell a lot more than I’d like.

28) My self-esteem is far lower now than it was before I had the boys.

29) I am proficient at operating a snow blower.

30) My favorite TV show is Castle.

31) I’ve been to France.

32) I do not speak French. In fact, the only language I do speak is English.

33) I’ve recorded every episode of General Hospital for as long as I’ve had a DVR to record it on.

34) I value my sleep over many other things in life because I am a mess without it.

35) I am either ultra organized with things or a mess, there is no in-between. Sometimes the things I have organized become a mess and the mess becomes organized.

I hope you enjoyed learning a little more about me.
