I'm Kelsey - a coffee addict, a lover of puppy cuddles, and a happy wife. When I say avid coffee drinker, that might be putting it mildly. Coffee is my go-to drink. To be honest, I don’t feel awake until I’ve had at least one cup. Even the smell of it makes me happy. I probably drink more coffee than a Gilmore.
In honor of my thirtieth birthday today, I wanted to share a few (okay, is 30 still a few?) random facts about me. I thought it would be a fun way for you to get to know a little bit more about me. And to keep sharing a bit more about myself during this thirtieth trip around the sun, each month this year I’ll be sharing a new “30” list. 🙂
Thirty Random Facts About Me
This whole parenthood thing is the best and most terrifying thing I’ve ever done.
I can make a W with my tongue.
I can’t snap with my left hand, only my right.
My favorite food would probably be tacos, but I love all Mexican cuisine.
I absolutely hate ketchup. But love salsa, will eat tomatoes, and will use cocktail sauce for shrimp.
Top Gun is one of my all time favorite movies.
I love the Harry Potter series, and they were the books that got me interested in reading when I was in the fourth grade.
When I was in school I had glasses and braces at the same time – which was a really good look for me.
I have never broken a bone.
I have swam in both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
Justin signs all the cards we give for birthdays, anniversaries, etc., because I have terrible handwriting. He also is much better at wrapping presents than I am.
I love printing photos, and try to do a family yearbook each year.
Clowns absolutely terrify me, and have since I was little.
I hate being the center of attention.
Awkward is my default setting, and I am terrible at small talk.
I am a terrible flyer who panics during take-off and landing, but I love to travel and see new places.
I share a birthday with my Dad, and he was so hopeful Wynn would be late and share our birthday as well. Considering he was almost ten pounds and a week early, I can’t imagine how big he would have been if 9 days late.
Crafts never turn out the way I envisioned them. I try so hard, but mainly end up with Pinterest fails so I tend to stick to photography and all things photo related. Justin is much more artistic than I am.
I am a homebody and would much rather hang out at my house or somewhere quiet than go out.
I love spicy food.
My favorite season would probably be spring, with fall in a close second. Spring is just so refreshing and wonderful as warmth starts to seep back into the days.
Root beer is my favorite soda pop, and I believe not all root beers are created equal.
I love a good, lazy Sunday spent binge watching a TV series with my husband and our dogs. And now Wynn. 🙂
I am a major caffeine addict, and had to cut down quite a bit while pregnant – and still with breastfeeding.
When I was three and my sister was born, I asked my mom when we took Karley back to the hospital.
I have ran four half marathons.
My favorite color is a muted shade of minty teal – followed by all the neutrals.
Gain detergent is one of my favorite smells.
I love salty sweet snacks – Like Boom Chicka Pop dark chocolate drizzled kettle corn.
I believe that family is the most important thing, and that you show up for the people you care about.
