“Things You Should Know About Me….

…If We’re Gonna Be BFFs”

I saw this meme on another blog and thought it would be fun.  :)

I drink skim milk not because I think anything else is gonna make me fat {5 bonus points if you know what movie that’s from), but because anything else that’s thicker makes me gag.

Somehow, I became one of those girls who had serious hair loss after pregnancy and who also got new growth of hair all over my head that’s only currently about an inch long which results in some really funky hair-dos and also causes me no end of stress.  Probably also not helping the hair grow back better, either.


I am definitely a touchy-feely person {as in, I love giving hugs and I’m one of those people that unconsciously touches other people’s shoulders when I talk to them}, but I absolutely cannot stand when Chris rubs a spot on my skin for a long time.  It makes me want to scream.  I didn’t end up going into real labor but I told Chris to please remember not to rub my back in the same spot when I was in pain or I might have to kick him out of the room. ;)

Speaking of backrubs, my neck and shoulders are pretty much permanently sore.  So if you offer to give me a massage I will be your best friend for life. :)

When I was little, I wanted to be called Wendy.

Also when I was little, I thought 17 would be the best age {wrong-my 20s have been way more fun} and that I would be 5’4”, aka: “the perfect height.”  I came up 2 inches short on that one.

If Chris smelled like the cologne they pump out of Abercrombie & Fitch’s vents into the mall, I would definitely not complain.

When I see people throw their cigarette butts out the window when driving, I kinda want to bump their car. 

I have been reading a lot of adoption blogs lately and getting jealous because a lot of mommies are getting to add another child to their family.  I know that my time will come but sometimes I just wish we had a house already so we could hurry the process along!

I love anything and everything pink and when we have a daughter, I am going to go crazy with it.  If she ends up being a tomboy I will probably cry for about a week and then get over myself.

I think “Elf on a Shelf” is one of the most adorable Christmas traditions ever and I can’t wait to do it with Luke next year.

Sometimes I see older women at church with their little shawls or ponchos and I get a little jealous of how warm they must be.  I think I am a little bit of an old soul.  Mostly I can’t wait until I’m old enough to not give a rip about fashion anymore.  Like how fun will it be to wear a Christmas sweater with little bells on it when I’m a grandma?!  haha You think I’m kidding…

Also, I sometimes really wish I was Southern.  But I don’t ever want to leave New England again, so that takes care of that problem!

Do you share any of the same likes or dislikes?? What should I know about you if it were reversed? ;)

Head on over to Little Miss Momma if you’d like to join in, too!


  1. #12! JESSICA! You've been holding out on me!? I love you so much more now. My Marie. :o) hahahaha
    (And I love the Elf on a shelf too but new they are $30! Let me know if u find a deal after Christmas.)

  2. I would love to be someone who could effortlessly pull off a jingle bell sweater :D. There's another teacher in my school who wears that kind of stuff- yesterday it was a shirt with little Santas, presents, and Christmas trees on it- and I'm always secretly a little envious.

  3. This is too cute!! I saw this on Little Miss Momma's blog yesterday! I, too, love pink and am hoping for a bunch of girls once I get married and have kids, but I just know God's going to surprise me and give me all boys! hehe (: I hope my girls will be girly girls though, just like me!

  4. Um, I totally had the baby bangs too! Luckily the ones on top have grown out enough to cover it! And, yeah, being southern, it's pretty good! :)

  5. I'm the same way with milk. I can only do skim! Everything else makes me gag, blech!!

  6. I think it it quite funny that you wanted people to call you Wendy when you were little. It still rubs me the wrong way when I say my name and people 'oh Hi Wendy. Or ask for Wendy. AHHHHHHH! lol
    And I wanna be Southern too. Just hang out on my front porch sipping sweet tea, with the swamp trees hanging all around.

  7. just a word (or a few) about the Abercrombie scent... I LOVE it, too. And I've tried to achieve it in my own home (not kidding!) but to no avail! I've asked them several times what it is that's coming out of those vents - supposedly it's FIERCE. Well, WHATEVs - i bought FIERCE, and it smells nowhere near as perfect as the store! I think the stores are a blend of all of it!

    I hope you have a very Merry Christmas, doll! :)

  8. Hi Jessica! I love this meme. SO CUTE.

    I love Elf on a Shelf too! LOVE IT!
