11 Random Things About Me
1.     I love mornings. There’s something about them that makes me so happy and I love going through my morning routine of opening my windows to the sun, working out, breakfast, and getting ready for the day. Call me crazy, but the best part of the day always comes before 8am. Probably has to do with the fact that my body won’t let me sleep in anyway!

2.     I have a huge urge to travel 24/7. Every day I dream of buying a ticket and just going somewhere, anywhere. I love spontaneous, little road trips and long, thought out big trips. Going somewhere you’ve never been is such a great adventure.

3.     I love cookie dough. I consume more of it than I do the actual cookies. Which is why I rarely bake at home! If there’s ever any around, you can count on me to have at least 5 spoonfuls.

4.     I like to help people. And would love to be doing something bigger and better than just the every day stuff I do.

5.     I may be addicted to working out. I have to start my morning with one in order to go on with my day. It keeps me in a good mood and keeps me sane during my day with tons of kids! I use it as my thinking time and it’s definitely a stress reliever!

6.     I love when the seasons change. I would say that Fall is my favorite season, and while that’s probably true, I would have to say that they are all my favorites. I love going from wearing jeans and boots to flip flops and dresses, to swimsuits, to cardigans and scarves, and back again. Every season has something so perfect about it, so they’re all my favorite, I think. J

7.     I love reading. This past year has come with a ton of awesome books (Hello Harry Potter and The Hunger Games) If anyone ever has any suggestions, send them my way! I spend a lot of my time reading books, magazines, and tons and tons of blogs. Speaking of blogs, they’re kind of my guilty pleasure. I follow way too many, and know way too much about certain people’s lives. (But I’m always up for meeting new friends)

8.     I have a slight, okay huge, problem with trying to please people. I can’t even make a decision on where to go to coffee because I’m worried that someone won’t like that choice. It’s not the kind of people pleasing where I’m worried about what people think or anything, it’s the kind where I just want everyone to be happy! I would love to say that it’s getting better, but that would be a complete lie. My family hates it. I’m working on it.

9.     I’m a planner. I like to have a plan and know what kinds of things are coming my way. I don’t get people who can’t make plans and follow through with them. Drives me nuts! Along with plans, I’m a list maker. And love crossing things off.

10.   Target. Enough said. I have a big problem (like most people) when I go into that store, I come out with tons of things I didn’t need, but love so much. And I think that’s okay. J

11.   I’m really loud. You ask anyone to use one word to describe me, and most people would use that. Sometimes they try to disguise it with “outgoing,” “boisterous,” or “friendly.” But, it’s a fact. I’m just a really loud person!
