5 Things...

Extra random fact: my neighbors have a rooster in their front yard (yes, I live in the city) and I felt like this type of post needed a random picture.

There are lots of fun "share things about yourself" things going around the blogosphere lately, including "5 things" and the "Liebester Award." Thanks to all of you wonderful people who tagged me in them. It's probably good for me to share a few things about myself every now and then :) So, here goes:

1. I'm not very good at sharing things about myself. You're probably thinking that I am totally copping out with that one, but it really is true. I'm not at all shy and I can really carry on a conversation with anyone, but I don't often share personal information. I don't think it is necessarily because I am a surface-y person, I'm just reallllly private. Which is also part of the reason I am struggling to think of four other things to share about myself :)

2. I was a ballerina for 9 years and a basketball player for 10 years. They are REALLY different, but somehow they both worked for me - I think it's because I'm 5'10"? My dream was to be a ballet teacher, but then I started playing basketball in 7th grade and played through college. I am definitely a mediocre player (the WNBA is not in my future), but I love it.

3. I never thought that I would get married young (I was 22). My plan was to start my own company and maybe think about boys when I was 30. Then I met Eric. And my plans seemed silly. I am thankful now that I got married young; we have had so much fun together without having to think about having kids yet (You can read our love story here).

4. The best compliment you can give me is to tell me you think I'm funny. My husband told me that once and then he said he regretted it because I freaked out :) I love making people laugh. In college I performed in some sketch comedy performances and it was pretty wonderful. Now, I'm trying to think of something funny to write... but my humor can't be forced - it's all natural. Ha.

5. Organizing is one of my favorite pastimes. When I was in high school, my aunts would pay me to organize their closets. Seriously, I get giddy if I know I have a closet to organize. It just feeeeels so good.

So there you have it. Thanks for letting me share!

  1. Ballerina and Basketball Player?
    Sounds like a fun photoshoot to combine the two ;)

    I think I need you to come organize my entire life ;)
    I love organization but I can't seem to stick with it.

    Which is the lamest excuse in the book but it's all I got :)

    I always dreamed of marrying young and having kids by 25. But in fact, I got married at 25 and childless. But I couldn't be happier :)

    1. It always works out relationship-wise, doesn't it? Knowing you wouldn't change anything is a good feeling.

      A photo shoot?! I love that idea!

  2. My first thought was that picture was from H&ADoF2. Didn't you wear that dress then?

    Second thought was that you had somehow managed to produce a Gandalf-sized smoke ring to encircle that rooster.

    Third thought was that I miss you.

    1. Gah.... I wish it was! Karrit actually took this pic and did that Gandalf thing - she might actually be the one of us that is a wizard, though she would be the least likely to be excited about it.

      Missss youuuu toooo! Come hang out with me!

  3. I love that you were a ballerina and a basketball player! Did the ballet help with your jumping skills in basketball? :D

    1. Haha, I wish! I have no hops. That was probably the only reason I didn't make it into the WNBA :)

  6. I also have a hard time coming up with facts about myself, but once I start rolling them off it's hard for me to stop ;) I'm 5'7 but hopefully one day I will be 5'10 like you - you lucky girl!

    1. Being tall definitely has it's pros - like the fact that I get to help random people at the grocery store pull things off the high shelves :)

  7. I used to think I would never get married, but end up living on a lake with three dogs. And then I wound up getting married right before my 24th birthday. Also, I should take some photos of my closet and have you organize it for me. I have had this closet for almost two years now, and I am still rearranging things all the time. Thanks for sharing with us :)

    1. Isn't it funny how life always turns out differently than we expect - I honestly kind of thought I would never get married either!

      I really do wish I could come help you with your closet!

  10. I'm loving the rooster in your neighbor's yard! Thanks for sharing these tidbits about yourself. Isn't it funny how life never turns out the way you thought it would? You and I are opposites; I always thought I'd get married young and I didn't. =)

  12. My husband wants to get chickens in our backyard (we live in a suburb) because he wants fresh eggs. I told him no. Haha. Loved learning these new things about you! Even though it's hard to do...keep doing it! :)

    1. I REALLY want to get chickens! Actually, I just want fresh eggs, I don't want to take care of chickens, so I'm guessing it probably won't happen :) What's so crazy is that our neighbors don't even have chickens - just a rooster!

    1. It is a strange combination - but it has definitely helped with my coordination and flexibility for sure! If I hadn't done either, I'm pretty sure I would still be that really tall awkward girl :)

Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
