R A N D O M  F A C T S  A B O U T  M E

1. I have no middle name.

2. I'm left-handed, and so is my hubby.

3. I love to read, but I have the hardest time getting started in a book. I'll buy a book and it will sit on my nightstand for weeks. Once I finally bite the bullet and dive in, I never regret it. (Well, except for the confusing snoozefest that was Night Circus, but whatever.)

4. My biggest fear was/is childbirth. I can't tell you how relieved I was when I successfully gave birth to my son almost a year ago. You know that feeling that you feel when you complete a really difficult workout, or a dreaded work meeting or job interview is over? I felt like that, times a billion. Best day of my life.

5. I showed horses competitively for most of my childhood (and won a few national titles)

6. The thought/sight of people rubbing their palms on their jeans gives me the heebie-jeebies

7. My dream dinner party would include these famous guests: Jennifer Lawrence. Kate Middleton. Taylor Swift. Ellen DeGeneres. Jennifer Aniston. Kerry Washington. Julianne Hough. & Sandra Bullock.

8. I love trivia

9. I never finish a beverage. I have half-empty bottles of water all over my house.

10.  I love documentaries, especially about sociopaths or crazy cults. SO FASCINATING.

11. I'm a little OCD about numbers, and it's sort of freaking me out that 11 is the magic number in this post. Eesh. It's taking everything in me not to add a 12th to each of these lists.

Linzi's Questions For Me:
1. Do you like to read, what is your favorite book? Love to read. It's cliche, but I'm going to have to say the Hunger Games trilogy. I adore those books. So much so, that I almost refused to see the movies... I didn't want it to ruin the magic of those stories!

2. Are you left or right handed? Left (so funny, I didn't read through these questions before I made my list of random facts... Linzi, great minds think alike!)

3. How many children do you have, do you want to have more? In a perfect world, 4 kids. But... money and age permitting, so we shall see... we'd need to get to work, and I'm not quite ready to be pregnant again!

4. Do you have a secret talent to share with us? No :( I am the least-talented person I know. I mean, I'm a cool person... but I can't draw or sing or knit or scrapbook or decorate or do anything exceptionally well. That sounds like I'm really down on myself, but I swear I'm not... I'm awesome! Haha.

5. Can you speak any other languages besides English? Nope. I wish!

6. What is your favorite band or artist? Too hard! I love me some John Mayer, though. He might be it for me.

7. Who are your style icons? I love Khloe Kardashian lately, and Julianne Hough is always so effortless. Girl is on her style game!

8. Are you a hoarder of anything in particular? Yes. Pretty much everything. I can't delete pictures from my phone -- especially of my son -- because I feel like I'm deleting him from my life! Ha

9. What are you hopeful your kids will be when they're older? HAPPY, HEALTHY AND LOVED. Otherwise, I don't care. A preacher, musician, doctor, real estate agent, stay-at-home mom... I don't care. I just want them to be happy in their career choice, grateful for perfect health, and overflowing in love.

10. What is your favorite meal to eat? I love food. I would probably go out to eat with my worst enemy if they suggested that we dine somewhere that I loved.

11. Who is your biggest inspiration and why? My husband. He's the most passionate, selfless person I know.
