25 Things You Didn’t Know About Me

Thought I would do a fun post and share 25 things you didn’t know about me: 

{1} I know this one will probably shock many, but I do not like Chinese food. I know, I’m an oddball. 

{2} I am super competitive and stubborn. I suppose this can be a benefit, as well at times, a downfall. 

{3} I met Joseph back in 2001 and was friends with him for about 10 years before we started dating. 

{4} Tying back to #3, I knew Joseph since sometime in 2001 and always knew he played an instrument, but for some odd reason thought it was the drums. We never spoke about it directly and I had never seen him perform. It wasn’t until 2010 that I learned it was the violin that he played. I have no idea how I never knew he played the violin, nor how I concocted the idea for myself that he played the drums. Haha.

{5} I have always loved to perform and as a kid would put on concerts for family members. I put together programs, practiced my dancing and singing and many times convinced my sister and cousin to perform along with me. 

{6} I had ran for a festival pageant queen since I was about 5 until about 12. 

(7} I really dislike scary movies. Not specifically because they are scary, but because I feel like the characters most often lack common sense. If you were just being chased by someone trying to kill you, why would you a few minutes later, head to the attic calling out loud for your friend? I just can’t take it. 

{8} I have dreamt of living in NYC since I was 7. I had seen a photo of the NYC skyscrapers and pointed it out to my dad telling him, “Someday I am going to live there”. I still remember it clear as day. (I remember what shirt I was wearing and what room we were in our house). 

{9} My all time favorite movie is “Dirty Dancing” the original with Patrick Swayze. 

{10} I went to private Catholic school from grade school through junior high (minus third grade). 

{11} I own over 100 pairs of shoes. Would that be considered a “Shoe fetish”? 

{12} My hobbies would most likely consist of eating, traveling and dancing. 

{13} I love just about every genre of music: hip hop, pop, country, blue grass, jazz, etc ; except mariachi. 

{14} I still always cut my sandwiches into four pieces (squares or triangles). 

{15} I have curly hair and freckles. Most people have no under what lies under the compact and straightener. 

{16} I own / run 4 businesses in three different industries, but rarely share with people. 

{17} I would consider myself a feminist and by no way does that mean that I believe women are inferior. (More to follow)

{18} When I was a kid/ teen; my goal was to grow up and be a dancer/ singer for a living. 

{19} My favorite colors are green and red (all shades), but of course, not together. Haha, I would look like a walking Christmas billboard. 

{20} We didn’t find out Mr. Cowboys gender before he was born, but somehow I always had an inkling that he was a boy.

{21} I was a cheerleader in Highschool and played sports in grade / middle school (basketball, track, volleyball, softball). 

{22} I’ve been working on two BIG projects; can’t wait to share with you all. 

{23} I love traveling , as I mentioned above. I’ve been to 15 countries and 36 US states; many of them a handful of times or more. 

{24} I can’t keep a plant alive for the life of me. 

{25} Joseph jokes about myself being born to do “sales”. So many stories from from as far back as my early childhood where I was always trying to upsell / sell / negotiate . 😂

Well, I hope you enjoyed my getting personal with you. For those that have been following me for some time, did any of my sharing’s take you by surprise? What is something about yourself that you think others would be surprised by?
