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!

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? ;]
