5 Random Facts About Me

Here are some random or maybe not so random things about me that you might not know:

  1. I LOVE the state of Florida…I have never lived there and have only visited a handful of times but I absolutely love it. I love the heat, the humidity, the wildlife, the ocean, the sand, the smell…EVERYTHING. More than anything I daydream about spending the rest of my life there. That might not be the best use of my time…But hey it could be worse right.

  2. I am OBSESSED with journals…I have one for everything. I have a day-planner, sort of in the realm of a bullet journal but customized to fit my life. I have a prayer journal, my Morning Pages journal, a heart protection journal, a blogging journal/notebook and a goals/dreams journal. And I am going to be honest on any given day I have 3-4 of them with me wherever I go.
    1. I also have a REALLY bad habit of starting a journal and then not finishing it. I have quite a few half/three-quarters full journals throughout the house.

  3. When I find something I really like, such as a song or a movie/tv show. I will watch or listen to it ON REPEAT until I am tired of it. I will end up coming back to it later in the year for a few weeks here and there, but it is bad. I did that with the TV show Sherlock (But I mean come on…it’s Sherlock), I also did that with a few Ed Sheeran songs and I also did that with Fools Gold, Meet the Robinsons, The Holiday. Now these aren’t get works of art to some people but for me they simply make me happy. And I am always re-watching Harry Potter but that is an obsession on a different level. Right now I am listening to and re-listening to Desert Song and I simply can’t get enough!! You can watch the Hillsong United version here.
  4. I have a HUGE mug obsession. To the point that I don’t have enough room in the cabinet right now for all of them…That will change when I make my mug hanging rack I saw on Pintrest. I normally get a new mug when we go on vacation or when I travel somewhere new. Adam actually told me NO when we were in Florida because he said I already got a Harry Potter mug while in Universal, and I didn’t need a second mug from the trip…I felt jipped. But my Bellatrix LeStrange mug is  still one of my favorites.mugs
  5. I am always cold and I really don’t like the cold (Hence part of my love for Florida). I almost always fall asleep with a heating pad and am normally wrapped up in sweats. I even wore sweats to bed when I was deployed to Guam. Granted our rooms were kept at frigid temperatures but still…

Let me know in the comments below what some of your random facts are. I would love to be reminded that I am not the only person out there with WEIRD written across her face.

7 Years? How Is That Possible?
