Put a bird on it…

I have had a few instances in the past few weeks where someone has learned something about me and remarks “really? I NEVER knew that about you!”, or something similar… 
I also, (no joke) got an email from an in-real-life-friend about a concert they thought I would like to go to because “____________ said you love them and always see them when you have the chance.” It was most definitely NOT true. 
It seemed a fine time for a random fact share. 
1} I feel as though I mentioned this before, here, but this was one of the “things”, so here goes… I LOVE made for tv Christmas movies. Granted, I am the world’s toughest critic on mainstream films, but when it comes to Christmas movies- The more made for TV, the better. {Person who did not know this: My husband Chw himself!}
2} I aspire to be an amazing cupcake baker. I have romanticized the idea for so long, (without actually baking any cupcakes) that it will likely be a HUGE disaster when I do. At least I know I can make some darn good muffins… 
3} I wish I sewed. I have everything (EVERYTHING) I could need to sew beautiful things. I lack sewing confidence. (And cupcake confidence apparently!) 
4} The absolute best thing that could happen in my day, (any day) is personal mail. There is nothing that speaks love to me more than opening an envelope to a handwritten letter or card. 
5} My favorite game, in the whole entire world, is Bingo. Since I was single digits in age. I LOVE Bingo! I wanted to grow up and go to Thursday night Bingo like my grandma did. I never get to play bingo, so I have a game on my phone. I literally count the hours (24 to be exact) until my credits renew and I can play a few games again. I LOVE bingo!
6} I LOVE Thai rice. 
7} I used to be 50 times craftier than I am now. i don’t know if it’s laziness, or emotional exhaustion, but the idea of doing something* crafty makes me feel wiped out. (Or sewing, or baking cupcakes) This is making a very small, handmade Christmas a challenge. Ironically, in 2008 we had a 100% handmade Christmas for twenty people more than this year, and it went really well. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME???
8} I can’t boil eggs. There. I’ve said it. Yes, I am embarrassed. 
9} I NEED to have my toe nails painted (even if it’s chipping, but i’d rather it not be.) but can’t stand anything other than clear polish on my finger nails. 
10} I love wine. I say I love wine, but in reality I probably like 1% of the wines I have tried. Now, that 1% I REALLY love though. 
11} I can’t stand movie theater popcorn. That being said, I love the popcorn my mom Julie made. It was awesome even several days later. (that’s probably what ruined me!) I also like Target’s popcorn, though I never get it. Best of all though, is my husband’s popcorn. I COULD (but don’t) eat it every single day! 
12} Some of my favorite movies are really awful, low budget, critically booed movies. {A few examples are: Surviving Christmas with Ben Affleck and Christina Applegate, and Grease 2}
13} I also really love Vignette movies like New York, I love you, New Years Eve, What to Expect when You’re Expecting, and Valentines Day.  
14} I love birds. In life, in photograph, embellished on home decor. 
15} think laughter is the greatest tool we have, in the whole world.

  1. Did you happen to see the Christmas movie on ABC family last night? It was a made for TV Christmas movie. It is called Mistletones. I didn't see it but thought of that movie when I read number 1.And I have to agree with you on 5 and 9. I have to have my toenails painted and I LOVE Bingo. I barely started to play a few months but I fell in love with it the first time I played. Oh, I love Grease 2!! Always sing "Cool Rider" ;-)

  2. Grease 2 is the best… I did not see it, BUT CONFESSION: My tivo is at 85% capacity and it is ALL Made for TV movies. We recorded it. Genny is DYING to watch it so i imagine we will see it this afternoon… (she is a girl after my own heart!)
