28 Birthday Things

Happy Monday, y'all!  Today is a pretty good Monday for me because it's my birthday!  In the spirit of this (national) holiday, I thought I'd share 28 random facts about myself:
1 || I have the same birthday as Gwen Stefani, Ashlee Simpson, Tommy Lee, Seann William Scott, Kevin Richardson, and Dave Winfield (Baseball Hall of Famer).

2 || Snapchat and Instagram are my favorite social media channels... although I don't post to either nearly enough.

3 || I'm currently reading Amy Schumer's book.

4 || She taught me that it's okay to be an introvert, and I love her for it.

5 || I've only ever owned cats, and until Ruxin and Shadow, they were all named after baseball players.
6 || Halloween has always been my favorite holiday.

7 || Water, beer, and lattes are the only things I drink.

8 || I don't have a favorite color.

9 || Ask me if I've seen a certain movie?  There's about an 80% chance I haven't.

10 || However, ask me about 13 Going On 30 - I can quote any line #seenit100times #embarrassing

11 || I met my husband at my 21st birthday party in college.  If you asked me then which one he would be, I would have been very confused.... and probably wrong!

12 || I am an outlet shopper all the way.

13 || I've never missed a Baseball Hall of Fame Induction in my life.
14 || I always hated spicy food growing up, but now, the spicier the better.  Carolina Reaper, I'm coming for you!

15 || My teams: Yankees, Cubs, Panthers, and Eagles.

16 || My life bucket list: own a Wrangler, a pickup truck, visit every MLB stadium, and move South.

17 || Half of my life bucket list is now complete since I inherited a pickup from my uncle.

18 || I grew up in Rhode Island.

19 || I've only ever successfully completed two New Year's Resolutions: sending birthday cards to all friends and family last year and wearing makeup everyday this year.
20 || I've played golf since I was 5, and I'm a 3 handicap.

21 || This time last year, I had never seen a Star Wars movie, but now I'm seen the first six three times through, and we saw Episode VII three times in the theater.

22 || I have a killer sweet tooth.

23 || Manicures and pedicures are my favorite splurge.

24 || I hate when my nails are naked.

25 || I am always hungry.  If I say, "I'm full," I really just mean I'm tired of eating what I'm currently eating.

26 || I'm still driving the same car I had when I was 15 - Jeepy the Jeep Liberty (original, right?).

27 || Mike does 100% of the dishes in our house, and I do 100% of the laundry.  We split cooking about 50/50.

28 || I share my birthday with Mean Girls Day!

Ok so today is Mean Girls Day - that makes sense on why all this stuff is popping up on them.

Have a great birthday!!

Rebecca Jo said...

I'm anxious to hear what you think about Amy's book - I finished it last month.

Happy Birthday! :) I hope you have a wonderful day! <3

I'm an introvert too. I definitely want to read her book.

My cat Davey is named after David Wright from the Mets. lol.

13 Going on 30 is the best. The soundtrack is great as well!

I want to visit every MLB stadium too but I have no one to do so with. :(

Nice to meet you and Happy Birthday! It's great to learn about you on my first visit to your blog. Great post.

Emily @ Martinis | Bikinis said...

Happy birthday sweet lady! I hope you and the hubs get to celebrate your day this week and possibly all month long, because why not? lol You sound just like me in the movie clue 80% of the time and I just started reading Amy Schumer's book today! So entertaining so far!

Robin said...

Happy birthday! Water, beer, and lattes - do you ever drink wine? What are your beer recommendations for me?

Macy V said...

13 going on 30 is such a great movie!! I am thinking it is the BEST theme for a 30th birthday party lol. Hope you had the greatest day!! xoxo

Ashley Lillis said...

I hope that you had the best birthday yesterday, and that's so funny that you met your husband at your 21st birthday party! I'm pretty sure that I wouldn't have thought that my husband was going to be my husband when I first met him either. And yes to sharing a birthday with Mean Girls! I wish that I had watched it yesterday!

a little bit of emily said...

Happy belated birthday! So fun learning more about you! I hate when my nails are naked, too!

Kristin said...

I usually haven't seen whatever movie people are talking about either. Movies aren't my thing. But I LOVE 13 Going on 30. We heart Jennifer Garner in this house.
Also, I could always eat. It's usually just dependent on what's being offered.
Happy Birthday!

Hope you had a happy birthday! My first Jeep was named Jeep Jeep. Very original.
