10 Things You Don’t know

I decided to write a post with 10 facts you don’t know about me.  I don’t have many pictures, but I had a lot of fun coming up with this one.

  1. I am a total scaredy cat – I hate being alone.  I have always hated being alone, but it got worse when I was in college.  My senior year, I lived in a house right off of the campus with 3 of my best friends.  One night they had all gone out of town and I was going to stay there alone.  But, I had been sick so my mom wanted me to stay with her.  Thankfully, I did.  Our house was broken into that night, and the door that they came in was the door in my room.  Then, after we graduated, I lived in an apartment with my sister.  We had heard rumors of a peeping Tom in the complex, but I had never seen anyone.  One night I rolled over in my bed, and there was a face staring at me through my window!  I can honestly say that in my life, I have only stayed by myself all night less than five times.  When I’m alone, I hear every little thing, and I hate it.  This is why we got a dog and he has helped tremendously!10 facts you don't know runandlivehappy.com

  2. I am a worrier – This is something about myself that I absolutely hate! I know I inherited this, and I have tried really hard to overcome it, but I can’t completely.  I worry about little daily things, and I worry about irrational things, things that probably won’t ever happen.   I just have these worries that pop in my mind all the time, and they are totally random but they’re there.  I pray about this, and try to let it all go, and most of the time I can.  But sometimes it just seems like there’s always something that’s worrying me.  I know a lot of people who seem so care-free and they don’t worry about anything.  Sometimes I wish I could be more like that, and just go out and enjoy life without worrying about what might happen.

  3. I am not confrontational –I hate conflict, and I try to avoid it. I try to just make peace and let the situation fix itself.  However, I will not be walked on, so if it’s bad enough I will speak up.  It takes a lot to make me mad, I’m pretty laid back, but once I’m there, I will speak my mind.  I usually just try to handle conflict in a rational way.  I have learned that it doesn’t make it any better to react to someone, especially if they are upset.

  4. I hate teeth – Teeth are so gross! I can handle vomit and blood easier than I can handle teeth.  I don’t know what it is about them, but they just make my stomach turn.  I have some weird visual in my head of them being pulled out and the skin ripping from them.  It’s like nails on a chalkboard; it just makes me cringe!  I thought this was an irrational fear and I tried to get over it a few years ago.  My best friend’s son had a tooth that he wanted pulled and I tried to do it. But, that just made it worse!

  5. I love to read – I am a huge bookworm! When I get into a book, I can’t put it down until I’m done.  Then, I go into a little depression because the story is over and I don’t want to read anything else yet.  Jeremy gets mad at me when I’m reading because I’m so engrossed in my book that I don’t pay attention to anything else.  I read on my phone, so I have it with me all the time and I don’t ever put it down.  I love mysteries, romance, young adult, and some action books.  I will do a post soon about some of my favorite books. Here is my favorite book series, you can find it here.

  6. I am addicted to Pinterest – I can literally spend hours on Pinterest. I love just looking at everything.  I have tried a lot of recipes, workouts, and tips that I have found on there.  I love it because it gives me ideas or advice that I wouldn’t normally get.  It’s just something fun to pass the time when I’m stuck at a ballgame or in a meeting, or even just sitting at home.  You can follow me on there – pinterest.com/runandlivehappy

  7. I don’t like ice cream – I really like the toppings though! I have kind of a love/hate relationship with ice cream.  I don’t actually hate it, but it makes my stomach hurt really bad!  I think I may be a little bit lactose intolerant.  I only like skim milk or almond milk for the same reason.  But, I really do like ice cream sundaes, I think it’s just all of the toppings though.  So, I never eat ice cream, and that’s fine with me.   It’s not something that I crave, or even something that I want if it’s right in front of me.  I’m fine without it!

  8. I have been out of the United States 9 times in my life – This is probably not a whole lot, but I know a lot of people who have never left the US. After college, I went on a cruise to Mexico with some friends.  Then, a few months later I went on another cruise back to Mexico.  Then, Jeremy and I went to Mexico for our honeymoon and we have gone somewhere every year since then for our anniversary.  We have been to Puerto Morales, Cancun, Cozumel, and Playa Del Carmen in Mexico.  In Jamaica we have been to Montego Bay, Negril, and Ocho Rios.  And, we have been to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.  We really love Jamaica, but we are looking at going to St. Lucia or Antigua in the spring. Vacations

  9. I am very OCD – I really thought I was bad, but then I met my husband. He is ten times worse than me.  So, our house is always clean.  Everything has its place, it is always picked up.  I can’t stand dirty dishes in the sick, and I NEVER leave them in there.  I do dishes as soon as I dirty them.  I’m so bad, that it bothers me if we are eating dinner and I know there are dishes in the sink.

  10. I really love the Bachelor/Bachelorette shows – I am so addicted! Each season gets even cheesier than the last, and most of the couples end up breaking up anyways.  But, for some reason, I can’t quit watching!  I really am a romantic, so I guess that’s why I like watching.10 facts you don't know
