Let’s Talk About Me

With BlogHer less than a week away, I thought a quick “who am I?” post might be in order. I borrowed the idea from several others who borrowed the idea from Suzanne at behbehblog.

So that’s me up there. The me that you would meet on the street or, say, in the lobby of the Hilton next week. This is what I look like after a crap day at work and an annoyingly long drive home {not pictured- maniac little boys running rampant around the living room asking repeatedly for more apple juice}.

Some fun {kinda random} facts about me:

1. I make a lot of faces. I took FORTY-FIVE pics for this post and still don’t think I captured them all. Good rule of thumb – if I look annoyed, I’m probably not. That’s just kinda my go to face {which I realize it not ideal}.

2. I’m an amateur foodie. My husband is a chef and since meeting him my culinary horizons have been vastly expanded. This does not, however, mean I only eat fancy food. I’ll eat pretty much anything and am super excited to check out NYC street food next week.

3. I’m painfully shy. This has been a lifelong obstacle for me in regards meeting people and doing new things. You know that person you catch staring at you across the room who averts their eyes the moment you notice them looking? That’s me. I apologize in advance.

4. I have a lot of nervous energy. I play with my jewelry. I bite my cuticles. I check my phone obsessively. I have a hard time sitting still for any length of time. My mom asks me all the time why I am so nervous. I have no answer.

5. My bladder is abnormally small. If I’ve been some place once, I can probably tell you where they keep the toilets. I consider it a victory if I can make through a movie without getting up to pee. So if you’re looking for me, maybe check the restroom?

6. I’m kind of smart ass. And by kind of, I mean that a large percentage of what comes out of my mouth is sarcasm. It’s a family trait and no matter how hard I try to curb it, it’s a part of me.

7. I am a caffeine addict. I’ve tried to cut back, even quit, but it just never works out for me. If you run into me during the day, I’ll likely be carrying coffee or diet soda. And no, I wouldn’t be less nervous if I gave up caffeine. I’ve tried.

8. I love wine. Red wine is my go to drink – at home and out. Cupcake Vineyard Red Velvet is my new {affordable} favorite with Silver Oak cab being my all-time {not affordable} fave. On occaision I will drink white wine, rarely do I turn down a beer, but I pretty much never drink any hard alcohol.

9. I can’t hear in noisy places. I’ve been told by numerous audiologists that there’s nothing wrong with my ears, but I can assure you there is. I don’t know if it’s the ear drum I ruptured a few years back or too many years of front row concert standing but I have annoyingly bad hearing in a crowd.

10. I’m a chameleon. You know those annoying people who develop a southern accent after spending 30 minutes with people from the South? Yeah, I am that person. If we spend more than 15 minutes together it’s likely I will pick up words or phrases you use and never even realize.

So that’s about all I can come up with off the top of my head. If you’re still wondering who I am after reading these fascinating {ha!} details, feel free to check out my about me page or about that time I stole a stroller or where I discuss my disdain for celery. Any one of those will surely give you some insight into who I am {snerk}.

If you’ll be at BlogHer, I’m looking forward to meeting you. If not, maybe we’ll run into each other some other place – the grocery store, that mall, a public restroom, whatevs.
