if you really knew me

you'd know that...

This picture was taken the day after I found out I was pregnant this past summer

I've become a HUGE homebody over the past year and proudly own this change

I haven't cleaned my shower in a disgusting amount of time

I've kissed the Blarney Stone

I'd rather watch sports with the guys than gossip with the ladies

When I mop, I break out in a sweat b/c that's how out of shape I really am these days

I have an extremely unhealthy relationship with a family member of mine

I hate having attention on me. Even the slightest bit makes me uncomfortable

I despise talking on the phone

My college best friend/roommate's dad was a director on Star Trek, CSI and Charmed

One of my favorite things in life is a drunk Bryan

I have bad alleries and asthma

I could never be best friends with someone who doesn't use the eff word

I once had my belly button pierced

If you're a Californian I automatically feel close to you

Bryan always drives when we're in the car together

I had a thing for drowning at parties as a little girl and my dad jumped in many pools to save me

Decorating my house is my favorite hobby

I form friendships authentically and am uninterested in having a slew of peripheral friends

If I'm your friend, I care deeply for you and want all good things to come your way

I'm one of the least judgmental people you'll ever meet -- mostly because I don't care enough to judge

I have a (stereotypically) masculine way of thinking, communicating and handling situations

I bite my nails down to practically nothing

I love to color in coloring books

I went to high school with Lauren Conrad's husband

I like to be alone. "Me time" centers me

I don't make my bed

I like all of the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse theme songs *hangs head in shame*

I can instantly cry when thinking about my grandma

I've never smoked a cigarette

I was once approached in Santa Monica by a Sony Pictures producer to read for a part in a movie playing Jennifer Lopez's little sister

I could spend every minute of the day outside

I love to watch tv. It's easily my favorite pastime (which contradicts the above statement entirely)

I, as in myself, was hit by a car

I was much more excited to be married to Bryan than I was for my wedding day

I'm in awe over how quickly 2 people (us!) can go through an entire roll of toilet paper

I love salt, so much so that it hinders my health

I don't fully think through or analyze big decisions. I make quick moves

I'm the messy one and Bryan is as neat as a pin

I never leave the house without any make up on

I'm totally self deprecating

I blow dry my hair about twice a month, if that. Air dry is where it's at!

I can't fly without someone telling me "ttp"

Old Blue Chair is my favorite song and the perfect depiction/metaphor of who I am, how I've lived and what I want out of my time here on earth

I almost named this blog Old Blue Chair :)


I challenge all of you moms, wives, caregivers, work-o-holics and loyal girlfriends to take some time to reflect on you. We often blog about everything under the sun except for our authentic selves.

Tell me:
Who are you in this moment in life? If I really knew YOU, what would I know?


  1. Probably one of my favorite posts in a while - so authentic! We truly have a lot in common, mainly the nail biting, not making the bed and relating more to guys than gossiping gals!

    Also going to have to add an elephant to your circus logo here real soon :)

  2. This is such a great post and you came up with SO MUCH stuff about yourself!! I too love to color in a coloring book (sometimes making supplies for the kids I work with is my favorite thing to do). Having friends who say the eff word is fun lol
    Loved getting to know more about you! :)

  3. I loved reading this!!! :) I knew I loved you, I use the eff word WAY too much, probably to a fault. Im afraid it's gonna be my kids first word LOL
    I bite my nails too because I have no clue how to file them down I even a girl is probably what you're thinking huh? ;)

  4. 1. glad we both use the F word...a lot.
    2. i've had my belly button pierced twice.
    3. i have a thing for (almost) drowning in bath tubs
    4. you give the best man advice b/c you are a man inside. :)
    5. i have coloring books and crayons in my closet.
    6. ttp (even though i have no idea what that means...glad i could help that day by telling you that. :) )

  5. This is such a great post! Loved it.

  6. I'm pretty sure we are almost the same person!!! The eff word comes out of my mouth at least 10 times a day. Thank goodness Lucas hasn't repeated it yet! I never make my bed too. Too much work only to get back in it at the end of the day! And I'm also in awe as to how we go through so much toilet paper too! Oh, and I went to school with John Lasseter's kids before Toy Story made him more famous!

  7. I loved this! I use the eff word way too much. Sometimes I feel ashamed of it. I am not planning on having a child soon, but would be very interested to know how asthma has been while pregnant. I've always worried/wondered if I was pregnant in the future how my baby would get enough oxygen.

  8. Seriously loved this, thanks for sharing :)


I love hearing from you and always try to respond to your comments!
