countdown about me

lovely photo taken by allison while on our bike ride the other day 

got this brilliant idea from christi lynn  where we can all be given the opportunity to say what we want to say and give insight into ourselves when we don't have the courage to do so. with that said, here's a little insight into me: 

ten things I wish I could say to ten different people {without using names}:
1. you really hurt me and i just wish you could acknowledge and apologize, instead of tip-toeing around the situation. 
2. you are growing up way to fast. i wish you could see how much fun being young really is. 
3. i'm beginning to feel left behind while you move on to do bigger and greater things with your new friends. 
4. you are absolutely hilarious. keep rockin' on!
5. i wish you were there for me when i was growing up. 
6. i miss you and think of you often. i hope you are dancing in heaven. 
7. i really hope you don't bring your friend to my wedding. not a fan. 
8. that haircut does not work for you. 
9. i wish you would except my past as a stepping stone to my future. 
10. i love you. 

nine things about myself:
1. when i'm really upset i like to turn off my phone, go on a drive and blast the tunes. 
2. i was such a tomboy growing up. vans, baggy jeans, and baggy sweatshirts every single day. i DID have those curly shoelaces though. probably the only girly thing on me. 
3. i fell face first into the fireplace the day before my second grade pictures. needless to say, they aren't pretty. 
4. i absolutely hate people chewing gum around me. the smell, the chomping. just not a fan. 
5. i like to eat my food separately. i.e. i eat all of my soup before my sandwich. not switching back and forth. not sure why. 
6. i have a fascination with watching murder shows such as CSI, the first 48, snapped, cold case files...weird, i know. 
7. i am completely in love with dogs. any and all dogs. if mr. taylor would let me i would take in every dog at the pound, off the street, even your backyard. seriously. 
8. sometimes i don't like what i see in the mirror, but then i get over it.
9. i kinda, sorta like tattoos.

eight ways to win my heart:
1. must have a sense of humor. 
2. must be willing to sing loudly along with the radio.  
3. must have an infectious smile. 
4. must love the things i don't always accept about myself. 
5. must be sensitive to my OVER sensitive feelings. 
6. must have this way of looking at me that makes me feel like the only one in the room. 
7. must love to cuddle. 
8. must know and accept me for who i am.

seven things that cross my mind a lot:
1. mr. taylor. 
2. what things i'm missing off my wedding check list.
3. how will i fit time in to do this pile of homework.
4. what tv show did i forget to set up to record. 
5. what bills do i have left to pay and how will i pay them. 
6. what job will i get once i make the big move. 
7. am i forgetting something?

six things I do before I fall asleep:
1. put the pajamas on (i.e. some grunge t-shirt and basketball shorts).

2. wash my face.
3. brush my teeth.
4. think of alllll the things i need to do the next day.
5. say my prayer.
6. call mr. taylor because we are super cheesy and must be the last ones to say goodnight and 'tuck' each other in.

five people who mean a lot:
1. mr. taylor (the future hubby in t-minus 25 days).
2. my momma and entire family.
3. my grandpa. he get's his own shout out.
4. eric's family.
5. my two besties - kimberly and gavi.
*this list could go on, of course.

four things I'm wearing:
1. basketball shorts.
2. my SPU t-shirt.
3. mr. taylor's sweatshirt.
4. my engagement ring.

three songs I listen to often:
1. anything adelle.
2. anything maroon 5.
3. anything counting crows.

two things I want to do before I die:
1. make a difference in someone's life.
2. travel the world.

one confession:
i'm a people pleaser which NEVER works to my advantage and i have to be more direct with people.


  1. I didnt realize that the two of you werent married yet (I guess I should have read your about me) how exciting! :)

    This was a really good way to get to know you.

  2. ooo I love this :) I may steal this idea ;) teehee

  3. Love this post! It's fun getting to know you better :)

  4. I love this! I also appreciate the honesty! About your confession- I am the same way. and this summer my goal is to just be myself with out apologizing. :)

  5. I found your blog yesterday and i already went through everything (at least i think everything). he proposed in disneyland, did i get it right? omg, so awesome :)

    I like your confession thing, I like the "that haircut does not work for you" xD ... good way to take things out of your chest.

  6. i love that you guys fall asleep on the phone. B and I used to do that before we moved in together. and its not cheesy either. cheesy = awesome and sweet. :)

  7. This post is great! I love finding out little things about people :)

  8. Oh my gosh, I had totally forgotten about those curly shoe laces! I had some too - coolest things! I agree with Katya, great post of little infos! :D

  9. I love this segment, I'm so gonna use it after the 4th's festivities are over! :)

    Hahah yay for tom-boy-ish-ness! I was one too or should I say...I'm pretty minimalistic. So I wasn't classified as a girly girl in the least lol and I feel you on being a people pleaser. I recently found out that two of my friends deleted me off FB....surprised, definitely. Maybe I was never nice enough to them? Idk. Oh well. Lol!

    Happy 4th! enjoy your holiday! :)


You're an all-star!
