I distinctly remember the Miley Cyrus song “7 Things” taking over my favorite Top 40 radio station circa 2008. And for that little piece of musical genius we can all blame those darn Jo Bros for breaking 15-year old hearts left and right.
So the other day, the hysterical and very talented Caitlin at the Arty Runnerchick tagged me in a post where I get to share 7 random fact about myself. Definitely check out her blog – I love it!
1. Sleep On It
I’m the person that falls asleep in the car before it leaves the driveway (when I’m the passenger!), the plane before it takes off, or the train before it leaves the station. It’s instantaneous. I could have downed a latte 10 minutes earlier and then boarded a plane… and it’s over. (This actually happened last summer before taking off for a trip to Hawaii). This also applies to the opening 15 minutes (I’m being generous, it’s more like 5) of most movies.
Apparently I have the sleep needs of an infant.
The celebrity style I most admire? Coincidentally they too like dressing alike. I would hands down wear anything (fascinators aside) that these 2 wear. I think I was more excited about Kate’s visit to the US to see what she would wear than what she would do. (DVF! Jenny Packham! Alexander McQueen!) Check out all the good here.
- Kate Middleton
- Blair Waldorf
I am competitive. With myself only. I think that also comes from being a bit of a perfectionist and totally Type-A. I won’t half-ass anything. If I set my mind to do something, I’m going to follow through and do it – no ifs, ands, or butts regardless of how long it takes me to finish. Like my 1st 1/2 marathon when I did zero training and walk/jogged/dragged myself until I finished. (Not something I recommend!) Today for example during my HIIT run- the wheels were clearly off the tracks mentally but I refused to finish until I had done 20 solid minutes of intervals. Stopping a minute early just wasn’t an option even though I was so over it – I had to push myself to finish like I knew I could.
4. Hold the Ketchup
I am not, in any way a condiment fan. There was actually a time I wouldn’t even go near BBQ Sauce or Spicy Mustard (currently the only 2 “condiments” I will eat). I dislike ketchup, mayo, yellow mustard, relish, ranch, and all that jazz. I’m the girl who orders her sandwich “dry” and specifies “turkey, cheese, and greens only. ONLY.” High Maintenance. Party of 1.
If it was socially acceptable, I think I’d put cinnamon on everything I eat.
6. Puppy Love
I want a dog. No I’m sorry, I need a dog. I take pictures of other people’s dogs and post it on my blog. I pet random dogs on the street. I swear up and down that dogs flock to me because they know I love them.
Boyfriend is totally on board with this. I am totally on board with this. Did I mention our landlord is not?
7. Back To Life, Back to Reality
I love TV. I love reality TV even more. Kardashians, Jersey Shore, Biggest Loser, Giuliana and Bill (so vastly underrated in my opinion), Real World Road Rules Challenges (you better believe we never miss a single Gauntlet, Inferno, what have you), Man vs Wild, Dual Survival, Chopped, House Hunters. You name it, I will watch it.
The only one I just can’t watch? The Bachelorette. I’m sorry but after Jillian’s season (is it just me or was she just wasted the entire time? And did it make for fantastic television?) I just couldn’t do it anymore. Jake you are not quality entertainment.
