How’s it going? HAPPY FRIDAY! And happy LONGEST day of the year <3
I am stoked to spend today & the rest of the weekend with some of my family (& husband!) at the mountain house. After I teach Zumba in the a.m. today, I’m taking the day off work & going to play all day. Working & stress are overrated. 😉 I’m taking total advantage of the longest day of the year, obv.
p.s. the below salad was so so good. go combine feta, peach, roasted almonds, and spinach–you can thank me later.
p.p.s this salad was a part of a snack for me. I’m eating lots lately, I think Baby Perks is having a growth spurt-which is fabulous for me!
And because this blog is written by me & my perspective, I’m sure you just can’t get enough of me. 😉 So here are 10 random facts about me that you might not know.
6 Random Facts About Me
1. I oddly can remember license plate numbers & telephone numbers really well.
It’s a freaky, odd thing to be talented at. Now with smartphones being well, so smart, I don’t memorize phone numbers as often anymore.
2. I prefer sour or tart candy/fruit to sweet candy/fruit.
I like it sour or tart! My husband is the complete opposite on this. He loves strawberries while I love kiwis & blackberries & lime/lemon anything.
3. Because of my Montessori training, I separate anything into colors.
Skittles, starbursts, jellybeans, etc. are sorted into color the moment I open a package.
I went to a Montessori school since Toddlers (pre-K) with LINZ through 6th grade. We’re great at sorting & hands-on stuff, aren’t we, Linz? I loved that schooling & hope to have my kids go to Montessori for at least a few years.
4. I used to never wear sunscreen.
Like EVER. I am lucky in the fact that if I burn, it usually turns into a tan in 1-2 days, so when I was younger (teens), I never wore sunscreen b/c I didn’t want to lessen any tanning benefits. Yes, very stupid.
Now? I wear sunscreen every time I go outside! And guess what? I don’t really ever burn, and I get a nice tan. Winning.
Jared always jokes that he hopes all of our kids get my skin genes, because the poor guy burns any second he goes outside (w/or w/out sunscreen).
5. I’m a really good multi-tasker. And I am bossy.
These are both awesome & horrible.
If you are bossy, I’d consider becoming a fitness instructor….it really is NO surprise that I love, love telling people what to do. And helping them get results. 😉
I used to boss my sisters around when we’d play with Barbies…and I always got the ‘good’ Barbies & Kens.
6. I feel really blessed.
I know this isn’t much of a surprise to some, but I just wanted to express how grateful I am -for everything. My husband, my faith, my family, my support group, my friends, you guys, my job(s), my talents/hobbies, and my trials.
My life is not peachy or without bumps-never has been, but I’ve come to learn to really live in a space of gratitude & thankfulness that has helped me turn those trials or frustrations into hurdles rather than keeping them as roadblocks.
Have a LOVELY day! <3
