If you really knew me...

So a couple weeks ago, this bandwagon came along and I just let it pass me by.  And then I ran after it, caught up, and hopped on.  So here it is ... my "if you really knew me" post.  I originally saw it on Jenni's blog, then Ana did a great one, too.  I'm sure there's even more out there and I secretly love reading every one of them.

If you really knew me, you'd know...

- I can rap every single word to Salt-N-Pepa's Whatta Man.

- As many of you know, sometimes it's hard to pee in a public restroom.  So whenever I get stage fright, I have a special song I sing in my head.  I don't know what it is about it but it works like a gem every time.  I can't tell you what it is though - I might pee my pants just typing it.

- Only two people in the world know the meaning behind my tattoo and I plan to keep it that way.

- When I was around 7 or 8 years old, I thought Christopher Columbus was the coolest guy in history.

- I never went on a trip outside of the US until I was almost 26.

- I always say I want a big dog someday, but I secretly love those little Yorkies.

- I hate the number 25.  I hate how it looks when typed, I hate how it looks when written by hand, I hate how it sounds when you say it.  It's just a gross number.

- I have a serious sugar addiction.  I know a lot of people say this but, for me, I crave it like a drug and when I eat it I have a hard time stopping myself.  I've started restricting myself to just one dessert a week but it's a never-ending battle of will power for me.

- I still have my pink and white baby blanket my aunt made when I was still just a fetus.  If I ever have a daughter, it'll be hers (sorry future sons, unless you're a girl, i'm keeping it for myself!)

- The Boyfriend and I make up songs for Molly all the time and they rarely make sense.  The latest goes a little something like this: "Mollina-pollina, guinea pig from Peru, she gets so effing excited she don't know what to do."

- I have a lot of freckles in random places, including the tip of my big toe and the inside of my left ring finger.

- I've always wished I had dark curly hair and light green eyes.  For whatever reason that, to me, is just gorgeous.

- I could eat pizza every day of the week and still want more.

- I struggle with low self-esteem, especially when it comes to my body.  I don't see anything attractive about it and wish more than anything I could swap with someone else.  I'm trying to come to terms with it and be more accepting but it's a challenge.


  1. I'm about to jump on this bandwagon, too.

    And I have random freckles, too! Mike says I have one for each body part - tip of my nose, each knee, one on each arm, etc. So weird.

  2. I totally empathize with the sugar addiction and low self-esteem with body image! I struggle with the exact same things on a daily basis!!! I've eliminated a lot of things from my diet and do pretty well, but sugar is just that one thing that will always be difficult! And we totally make up songs about our pets too. I sing them to them all the time, lol. So cool you know all the words to Whatta man!!! =)

  3. Ha! The first fact made me laugh as I still have the album with that song - on vinyl!!! I can really relate to the whole body-image thing and wish (yes, hindsight is such a great thing) that I had appreciated what I had in my 20s as it only got worse after having my son. It's a constant battle with no (I think) magic solution. Exercise, the love of a great man (don't care if that's not very feminist) and knowing what clothes really suit me seem to help... Have a lovely week xo

  4. Surprised that baby blanket hasn't fallen apart or rotted apart by now - really can't believe it is still holding together.

  5. Hehehe, the song for Molly really made me laugh! So cute! LOL

    xo Kayla

  6. your addiction to sugar=my addiction to chips.

    and im the same about my body.

  7. I love everything about you. That is all.

  8. Salt-n-pepa, ahh I die, love this.

    Great shares!


  9. Ooh this is so fun - thanks for sharing all of those details about yourself

  10. oh man - i was born on the 25th and looooooove the number 25, haha! you sound like a seriously fun person with a seriously lovely sense of humor. and keep working on the last one - it's always a struggle but it's important to love our bodies, considering how much they do for us! even if they're not perfect they're still amazing.

  11. It cracks me up that you think 25 is a gross number! I like these posts, I want to do one too!

  12. What a personal post, thank you for sharing.

  13. I feel you on eating pizza... It really is a blank canvas of what you can do... Haha!!!

  14. This is so endearing and honest. I feel like that is missing in blogging these days. Thanks for sharing and keeping it real.

  15. Your stage fright song cracks me up - although I know it's probably not funny when one is presented with that situation.

    Someone told me to think of a color to get the opposite result!

  16. Just love it that you love Yorkies :-) they are kinda like a big dog in a small body and so sweet and stubborn LOL

    I always make up songs that don't make sense for my 2 year old, just great that you do that for a Molly lovely song btw :-)

  17. I'm with you on the dog thing. How fun would it be to have a big dog and a tiny dog? Love that image! So fun learning a little more about you.

  18. i might need to jump on the bandwagon as well...you only have one dessert a week!! how do you do it woman?!! i have a hard time limiting myself to 1 a day.

    also, i love that song you made up for molly. so cute and funny.


Tell me more.
