This is me.

Just some random facts for you about yours truly,

  1. I love  am obsessed with turquoise (obvi.)
  2. Pecksniff's England Gardenia & White Peach - my new hand lotion love.  Thanks Marshalls!
  3. I am old fashioned (relationship-wise) and when all the little girls were kissing boys in elementary, middle, and high school...I had a rule: I only could kiss a boy if he was my boyfriend (with the exception of Andrew...I must have known he would be my forever love ♥.)
  4. I did shot put in middle school and was on the Varsity team starting in 6th grade.
  5. I wish I enjoyed running and cardio, but I despise it.
  6. I've driven several times from Wisconsin to South Carolina on vacation with my boyfriend and his family.
  7. I've never broken a bone.
  8. I am in love with dahlias and zinnias.  My favorites.
  9. Speaking of driving, I hate it.  It makes me want to take a nap.  Even being a passenger, I'm bound to end up sleeping before we get to our destination.
  10. Elvis and Elton were two of my first music loves (Presley and John, that is).
  11. My mom took me to see Lisa Marie Presley when I was about 10 or 11 - what I took away from that: a rowdy woman in the crowd who took her shirt off and was dancing in her bra.  Strange. 
  12. I can remember things all the back when I was 2 years old.
  13. As #11 shows, I have a freakishly good memory.  It can be bothersome when I just want to forget.  Good for studying, though.
  14. As a kid I didn't really enjoy sitting and playing with toys for hours, I'd rather play pretend and make up a game or play tag/baseball/hide & seek.
  15. I've eaten raw eggs when I was a child (thanks Dad!) and a couple years ago - just to prove to Andrew that I would do it.
  16. Also, when I was young my favorite snack was fried fish & ChicharrĂ³n (pig skin).  Again, thanks Dad and Filipino roots.
  17. I'm half-filipino, yet I do not know my dad's native tongue.  I've tried, but it is difficult.
  18. My grandma (maternal) died the year I was born; she never met me; my middle name is her name {elaine}; I still feel a connection with her despite never meeting - she's with me when I cook and bake. 
  19. I cry like a baby when I watch The Notebook and PS I love you.
  20. I want to move to Portland or Seattle.
  21. Andrew and I make up songs about the most random of things and make up words; of course we do this in funny voices.
  22. I was born in Long Beach, California and moved to Kenosha, Wisconsin when I was 2.
  23. When I was in elementary school I bragged and bragged about being Filipino and being born in California.  Seriously, I wouldn't shut up about it.
  24. I have scarring on my kidneys (recently discovered) and the doctors have no idea why, BUT they do think it is the cause of my high blood pressure!  One answer down, one more to go!
  25. I can't french braid my hair.
  26. I have hated hair for most of my life and in middle school I thought it would be a great idea to pluck my eyebrows to the point that one of my eyebrows was [almost] gone!
  27. Belle was my favorite princess growing up and now my favorite is Snow White.
  28. My favorite pastry is a tie between an apple turnover and blueberry scone.
  29. I haven't finished the Harry Potter series because someone spoiled the 6th book for me, so I stopped reading.
  30. I can be OCD - I count things or have to do something a certain way or certain number of times.
  31. I'm pretty sure I might be tone deaf, despite being in choir from 6th grade till 10th.
  32. I met Dana White (President of the UFC) after a weigh-in in Milwaukee a few years ago.
  33. Hank Aaron was my commencement speaker at Marquette.
  34. I'm a perfectionist | loud | outgoing | quiet | reserved | pensive | hesitant.  I'm a contradiction.
  35. 5 & 6 are my favorite numbers (mostly because those were usually my numbers in elementary school - alphabetically I came 5th/6th in class - and it just stuck).
  36. I've had a size 10 shoe since I was 10.
  37. I have horrible motion sickness - in cars, planes, trains, boats, roller coasters, you name it.  The last time I was on a plane I almost got sick, so I took a 2nd dose of Dramamine and once we got off the plane I was so tired I slept through dinner (at a restaurant - literally head down on the table) and through a two hour car ride around town.
This was fun!  Not only was it a way to share a little bit about me, but it was also cool to go back and remember some things that I don't always think about.
