Five Facts Friday

TGIF! I’m really looking forward to this weekend…..friends, the beach, and a DIY project I’m excited to share with you guys! But first, it’s time for Five Facts Friday!

1.) Give me a dark room, a flashlight and a camera and I’m amused for way too long. I blame my painting with light photography assignment in college.

2.) 10 years of driving and I have never gotten pulled over. (knock on wood?) And this is not because I don’t speed.

3.) The only drink I ever order at a bar is rum and coke. Bacardi, please.

4.) I have scoliosis and wore a back brace throughout high school. As a teen girl who wanted to wear cute clothes, it was really hard on me.

5.) I kind of love line dancing. Now, before you judge, you must know that when I lived in Michigan my friends and I went to a country bar called Coyote Joes (think Coyote Ugly with a little bit of class). I’m not a country girl, I don’t own a cowboy hat, but we sure ran that dance floor. I miss those nights.

Happy Friday!

    I’m not the slightest bit country but I had a great time when I went line dancing many moons ago!

    That is the coolest photo thing ever! And, I love line dancing too…OK ANY dancing. Thanks for sharing. This is a fun post. Happy Weekend!

    i discovered your blog from little chief honeybee and i have to say i love your work!

    i love exploring with light photography! but i must say that sparklers are my favourite to use.

    i work as a school photographer and i hate how the world has become so accustomed to digital, my dream is to create my own darkroom in my home one day so i can just play for my own benefit all day. :]

    you are one lucky lady never getting pulled over, you have some serious ninja talent going on.

    i usually only order jack and coke, but rum & coke is my second favourite.

    <3 i am definitely following through bloglovin now!

    I too loved the photo. I’ve never seen light photography before, it’s really interesting. Saw that you joined our group on Etsy and wanted to check out your blog. Good job!

5 Things You Don’t Know About Me

My friend Emily tagged me in a 5 Things You Don’t Know About Me post (like two weeks ago, I’m a slow poke) and I thought that would be fun! It reminded me of my Five Facts Friday posts I wrote back when I first started blogging and was trying to help readers get to know me more. It’s been a long time since I’ve done a post like that so I though this idea would be perfect. Here we go (and thanks to J for helping me with these):

1. I have an obsession with classic cars – Gimme a 1964 Mustang. No seriously, gimme. I would take a 2013 Dodge Challenger too but there is something about an old ass muscle car that gets me excited. I pretty much cannot go passed one without ooing and aahing. Maybe it’s my Detroit roots, I don’t know. I will own one, one day.

2. I can flare my nostrils like nobody’s business – Attractive, let me tell you. I’m not sure when I discovered this “talent.” I’m pretty sure when I was younger I was told my nostrils would “get stuck that way.” Jordan says he’s “in awe” of my “nostril control” although he “doesn’t necessarily find it attractive.” He may not admit this, but he definitely has tried to match me in my nostril flaring abilities, to no avail. If you and I were to meet in person, and you asked me to show off this skill, I would very most likely smile and refuse.

3. I tend to fall asleep during movies – Ok in my defense, this is only in regards to when I’m watching a movie on TV in the comfort of a home. Wait, that’s a lie. I definitely fell asleep in the theater to Eat Pray Love, and quite possibly, multiple midnight showings. But the majority of the time, it is on the couch, cuddled up on Jordan’s shoulder, with Penny snuggled up under a blanket with me. And I mean, can you blame me for feeling so comfortable and cozy that I drift off into a relaxed sleep?

4. I’m not into makeup – Sure, I wear it if I’m going out at night or on the weekends. But I’m not into owning a ton of makeup brushes and experimenting with eye shadows. The “fanciest” I get is winging some black eyeliner or adding some lipstick. I like to stick to the basics and attempt to embrace my “natural beauty.” Unless it’s Halloween. Then I go all out to embrace my costume (past costumes have included Ms. Pacman, “struck by lightning,” the Tooth Fairy, an 80’s Prom Queen – too bad I don’t have photos because that makeup was intense.)

5. I have eczema – (Eczema is a dry, itchy, rash-like skin condition.) I suffered from it as a kid, then it went away, and according to my dermatologist it often comes back in adults (lucky me). I regularly deal with it on my hands. Cutting up fruits and vegetables aggravates it and I often have to ask J to do the chopping, unless I have a pair of vinyl gloves on hand to protect myself. Yep, I cut veggies in gloves. New fashion trend? I wonder if I’ll ever be able to carve a pumpkin without ending up trying not to rip my hands off from the itchiness. Right now I just try to use medicated creams and a lot of self control to protect my hands and not make the rash worse (and sometimes J will swat at my hands when he sees my itching).

That was fun! Thanks for tagging me Emily! How did I do? Do you feel like you know me now? ;]

Don’t forget! Google Reader is peacin’ out! Be sure to:

    I do the same thing to my boyfriend! Falling asleep while we watch movies, that is. We usually put a flick in late at night when we are done with the day’s activities, and by then I’m so beat that I just drift right off and leave him to watch the movie alone. Poor thing, haha.

  3. delovely details 2 years ago

    Hubs has eczema. His flares up about a week after he’s been extremely stressed. Poor guy.

  4. gina 2 years ago

    loved this! emily tagged me too….I have been trying to come up with 5 things people don’t know. i feel like i share everything :).

  5. Bev Feldman 2 years ago

    Haha, loved #2! And I also fall asleep during movies (usually just when I’m home). Though I can pretty much fall asleep wherever.

  6. Emily 2 years ago

    Simple makeup is the way to go :) I’m not obsessed with classic cars, but I do love me a classic mustang! My sister had really bad eczema on her hands, so I know it can be really miserable. Have you ever tried tea trea oil? I’ve heard it really helps for some people.

  7. Carolynn Markey 2 years ago

    I haven’t worn make up in over a year! Best decision ever. Also, you are totally so beautiful! its been awhile since I’ve seen a close up shot of your face on here–and you are stunning! perfect tan, too!

  8. Cody Doll 2 years ago

    Very cute pictures and information. I love others that don’t wear make up. Not that wearing any is wrong but I think natural is better.

  9. Camille 2 years ago

    I love getting to know my favorite bloggers a little better. This was fun to read!

  10. dana @ wonder forest 2 years ago

    Eek I get eczema too on my hands. Only I have never been able to figure out what causes it… It just seems to randomly pop up every so often and is the worst ever. Swollen itchy fingers ew!
    This was great and I feel like I know you better 😉

    My husband falls asleep during movies, it drives me bonkers! :) Also, that drink looks delish!

    xo, Courtney

    I too have the ol’ eczema on my hands and it flares mainly in the winter months and dude, my hands will bleed, it sucks. I also unfortunately gave it to all 3 of my boys, poor kids. They seem to have outgrown it for the most part. Thanks for sharing your 5 facts :)

  13. Julie Claveau 2 years ago

    I don’t really wear makeup either. Only for pictures or important events. Even then, it’s usually just concealer, mascara and eye liner. I never wear lipstick, because every time I see someone wear it, I end up seeing them eating it (after they eat or drink it’s gone!!) and then it makes me think how much lipstick they must be eating… scary!! No thanks! Lol.

    Love, Moon

  14. Love it! I’m glad you came up with some fun five things, lady!! :) Definitely feel like I know you a little better.

  15. My massage therapist had same issue with his hands, saw a homeopath and has been fine ever since!

  16. chelsea 2 years ago

    Oh goodness, I’m the same way with cars! 1970 Dodge Challenger is my dream! Most of my fam on my dad’s side are/have been race car drivers or stunt drivers so that’s where I get my addiction from. The new renditions of them look nice too but I’m a sucker for a classic car. Studebakers, Mustangs, Stingrays…I swoon!

  17. Tagg 2 years ago

    I think there is a positive correlation between age and falling asleep watching movies. Haha kidding! :)) I always fall asleep in theatres, my money is mostly spent on the seats and air-conditioning. LOL. :)))

    Nice post! :)


  18. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot 2 years ago

    Love love love this post. I fall asleep during every movie too. at least if we’re at home :) and I am a professional nose flarer as well. Everyone knows if I flare it, I dont like something.

  19. It's Sooo Fluffy 2 years ago

    I’m with ya on the make up thing. The only thing I know how to do is mascara, and even doing that I end up poking myself in the eye haha

    I’m in the adult eczema club too and let me tell you it sucks. I have the kind that comes out after exposure to allergens (inside/outside/animals as my husband likes to say) and/stress with blisters.

    I’ve found some relief with rosemary soap/oil though. Oh! And ice packs and Advil for the really painful days and swelling
