27 Get To Know Me Facts

Random facts about myself after the cut – thought this would be a cool way to share some personal and quirky things about myself. I want to get to know you, too… so please share some facts about yourself in the comments. xx

1 // I was born in February and I’m a pisces. It’s scary how accurate my zodiac sign is.

2 // Most of my friends call me B – it literally warms my heart.

3 // Luke Skywalker was my very first love and boyfriend. I had a pillowcase with Luke on one side and Leia on the other. I never slept on the Leia side.

4 // I’ve had a list of baby names on my phone for probably 5 years now. I can’t wait to use them – I am obsessed with names.

5 // My HP house is Ravenclaw, which I love and 100% agree with. My hybrid house (according to a couple quizzes) is Gryffinclaw, but I definitely feel like I am more Ravenpuff.

6 // Oh, and my patronus is a dolphin. This makes my life.

7 // Before Joe was my husband, he was my work crush.

8 // I’ve been obsessed with whales ever since I can remember. I would beg my parents to take me to any “beached whale” happenings we had in RI (there were quite a few). Sounds messed up, right? But really, I was like 8 years old and my curiosity was peaked – I just wanted to see them up close. I go whale watching almost every year and my dream is to go orca watching. If I wasn’t a writer, I would be a marine biologist.

9 // My top 3 favorite movies have to do with outer space and aliens – Star Wars, ET, and Wall-E. Cosmic adventures for life.

10 // My cat is named after Minnie Mouse because she was my childhood hero. We call her Minerva M. Cat.

11 // I could quote The Office verbatim. I’ve seen the episodes at least a dozen times and play it as background noise as I cook dinner almost every night. I even went to the Scranton parade and got to meet JIM AND OSCAR! Life made.

12 // Joe and I already bought our future baby’s first stuffed animal – on our Disney honeymoon. (Spoiler alert: it’s Thumper)

13 // My favorite book is Jane Eyre (followed closely by Harry Potter).

14 // I graduated from the University if RI with a major in English and minor in Art. I followed my passions, and I wouldn’t change it for the world.

15 // I started as a Communications major but dropped it because of a required Public Speaking course. I walked out on my presentation and went home and dropped the class and major. I write better then I talk, and I would rather write 10,000 words than give a 10 minute presentation.

16 // I listen to my heart more often than my head.

17 // I’ve seen my favorite musician live 20 times (Andrew McMahon of Jack’s Mannequin, Something Corporate, and Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness). I’ve met him, too.

18 // My other favorite band is blink-182 (since 5th grade) and I’ve gotten to meet them, too. Talk about checking things off the bucket list.

19 // If a show has vampires in it, I’ll fall in love. Damon Salvatore, Spike, and Eric Northman are my dudes.

20 // I love the idea of house plants, but I can’t keep them alive for the life of me. Same goes for a vegetable garden. #BlackThumbClub

21 // I’m most comfortable in Vans or Converse.

22 // Lemon lavender is my favorite scent.

23 // I only drink (plant-based) milk if it has an ice cube in it.

24 // I collect raw amethyst – this was also the theme for my wedding.

25 // I took a traditional photography class in college and I miss it immensely. Developing film in a dark room is unbelievably therapeutic.

26 // Birthday cake is my guilty pleasure.

27 // Aside from this blog, I have also written a novel.
