Would You Believe . . . ?

Wednesday, May 28, 2014

Did you ever play that game Never Have I Ever at middle school sleepovers where you tried to think of things that would surprise your friends about you or that you haven't done that they probably have. Well I apparently spend too much time watching The Babysitter's Club (I couldn't sleep) and Mean Girls for my three day weekend, because I thought it would be fun to take you all back to those middle school days. (Kinda like when I shared my game of MASH throwback HERE) I also thought it would be a fun way to share some random facts about myself with all of you!  So here are a few things that you may not know or believe about me!

One: I didn't eat my first hamburger or cheeseburger till I was a sophomore in high school, and I didn't eat my first steak till I was a sophomore in college. #shelterediknow

Two: I'm absolutely terrified of Thunder and Lightning. I have been in a building that has been hit, had two different neighbor's houses get hit, and was in a horrible storm on a boat in the middle of the ocean. Basically I have PTSD and will freak out anytime I see a flash of lightning.

Three: I lived in Upstate New York for 15 years and I have never been to NYC. (Well I've actually spent several hours in the air port there, but that's it. . . it's really a crime)

Four: I am awesome at falling asleep during movies and I admittedly have never seen most classic movies. I just have a hard time sitting still that long! Here are just a few I have admittedly not seen in their entirety: Pretty Woman, The Matrix, Saving Private Ryan, Gladiator, Good Will Hunting, Braveheart, Rain Man, The Patriot, and The Breakfast Club. Just to name a few. Seriously . . . I have issues! (My husband would be so upset if he realized I truly hadn't seen all of these!)

Five: I moved from Upstate New York to Oregon when I was 14. We spent 5 entire days in one mini van with four people, two cats, a dog, and all the stuff we forgot to put in the moving van. Lets just say it was a bonding experience for my family.

Six: I've never broken a bone in my body, and hadn't ever been to the hospital (aside from being born and visiting other people) until Christmas Eve 4 years ago when I sliced open my finger on a food processor while trying to make dinner for Dan and the guys at the fire station. That's what I get for trying to be nice. (p.s. I am definitely knocking on wood right now because I'd like to keep my lack of hospital visits at a minimum if at all possible!)

Seven: I hate coffee - now don't go unfollowing me or disowning me as a friend . . . that just means there's more coffee in the world for you! I'll just order my Iced Tea and enjoy the aroma from your french roast!

Eight: I have never ordered a fast food burger. This might not come as that big a surprise to you considering I hadn't even had a burger till I was 16, but I'm guessing this is definitely not the norm.

How many of these apply to you? How many of these things really surprised you? Feel free to join in and post your own facts that may surprise other people!


  1. im surprised to hear you've never had a mcdonald's hamburger!!! they really aren't all that great so you are not missing out!! i can't imagine that van ride across country!!

  2. I love this post... I may need to do this.
    I'm giving you props for not eating any fast food hamburger ... all junk anyways

  3. You aren't missing much on the fast food burgers haha. I've never broken a bone or been to NYC either, however I didn't live there! Girl, what in the world?!?! haha

  4. seriously never had a fast food burger...well youre not missing out on much but sometimes they're pretty freakin awesome!

  5. That is so crazy that you didn't have a burger until you were a sophomore! I love burgers :) I haven't seen a lot of classic movies either and my husband just shakes his head every time he finds another one that I haven't seen. When we first started dating, he made me watch the Star Wars movies because I had never seen any of them haha

  6. I'm the same way with movies. I've never seen most (well, nearly all) of the movies that you listed either. Whoops! Also, YOU NEED TO GO TO NYC!!!!!... and bring me! :)

  7. Love this!!! I mean, who doesn't love that game?!
