I read Heather's post this morning and saw that she was inspired by a different post, so I'm tagging along as the third wheel and writing my own.
What you need to know if we're going to be BFF's:
I love to text. I do it all the time. If we're super close, you get a LOT of text messages from me. And now that I have a fancy new phone (thanks, Santa!) I don't think I've set my phone down. Send me your number if you're bored. ;)
Almost everything I do is completed with the phrase, "Good enough!". I should strive for perfection instead of a passing grade on every task I complete, but it's really hard for me. I "half-ass" my way through life.
I wear my hair in a messy bun almost everyday. If it's ever down, I make sure to jump into as many photo ops as possible. This includes taking lame pictures of myself with my laptop.
I can easily leave the house without makeup, in sweats, and with my hair in a messy bun. However, I cannot leave my house if my toes aren't perfectly polished...
...Because I wear flip flops 365 days a year...rain or shine.
I would rather have my house look like it is owned by a crazy cat lady in 1960 than a wealthy homemaker in 2011. Eclectic vintage and kid/pet-friendly awesomeness makes me happy.
I don't own a passport; plan your all-expenses-paid vacations with me accordingly.
I eat a lot. That can go both ways...I eat a lot (often) and I eat a lot (quantity). I keep meaning to post about this, but somehow can't find the strength...which is surprising since I posted about Riley without hesitation. One day I hope to go into detail. Until then, just know that I am a bottomless pit.
I avoid laundry like the plague.
I have a ridiculous amount of books that I keep meaning to read. And I have owned a Kindle 2 for quite some time now and have yet to download a book. Hubby has taken over the Kindle until I accomplish my book-reading goals. I should post about that, too. I would rather get a book as a gift than jewelry. True story.
I say bad words all the time. Up until I was 19, I didn't use profanity at all. I was given the nic name "goody two shoes" by an old friend because of my constant "phooey!" and "who the cuss does she think she is?" remarks. I now drop the f-bomb like it's my job. I despise it. I don't know when it started. It is one of my resolutions to stop this year. I fear being shipped off to sea the way I speak.
No one in my family closes the bathroom door when we are the only people at home. This goes for every bathroom activity except showers. I seal off the bathroom when I shower and let the bathroom fill with steam before I get in. When I get out, a cloud of steam leaves the bathroom with me and makes me feel like a superhero. Hubby does the same thing. I'm fairly sure this means my kids will grow up with superhero wannabe tendencies, too.
I bite my nails.
If I didn't fear what others (society) thought of me, I would have at least one full sleeve.
I adore karaoke.
I never had a wedding, and plan mine daily. We eloped at the courthouse, and I would love to wear a wedding dress next to my husband one day. We want to renew our vows for our ten year wedding anniversary. I hope to have a little wedding for the event. Yay for the year 2014! :)
And with that, I end my list. I could go on and on. Obviously.
