ABOUT HIS LITTLE LADY

Seeing as we have a few new readers on the site, and just did a little feature on the mister, I thought
"WHAT THE HECK, LET'S TALK ABOUT ME." (As if you aren't tired of that already, not). I'm always a big fan of the short and simple random facts game so here it goes, five random facts about me.

1. I was baptized by my lovely husband just after my twenty-second birthday.
2. I'm deathly afraid of needles. I know I know, this seems so generic, but I'm telling you I am categorized on a whole other level. I mean this fear is written in my medical charts. I once punched a doctor. Yeah, psycho over here.
3. I've come to find that one of my biggest pet peeves is when people mix up Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. I don't know why I get so offended by it. Perhaps it's because I'm the president of their fan club. (No, but I wish. I spent hours of my childhood on their site for real!)
4. I have an unhealthy relationship with the show Kitchen Nightmares. I find Chef Ramsay's bluntness and ill-temper attractive.
5. I can list all 50 states in alphabetical order. That sounded a lot cooler in my head... oh well.

What else do you want to know? What topics would you love to be discussed on the site in the coming weeks? Leave your questions and ideas below ::winks::

  1. I love random facts about people. Also I absolutely love Gordon Ramsey. There is just something about the way he screams at people that stops me from changing the channel.

  2. That is so cool that you're a convert! I'm a convert too!

    And I find Gordon Ramsay attractive too. But don't tell my husband! ;)

  3. I love these random facts posts! Thanks for sharing :) I had the deathly fear of needles, too.. I threw full size garbage cans at nurses once, cowered in the corner, the whole deal. It's awful. But then I passed out, literally out of nowhere, while really far away from home, and got rushed to the ER and, well, it was like aversion therapy. Just needle after needle. And it totally cured me. Something clicked where my fear of what was wrong outweighed my fear of the needles! (and, btw, nothing was seriously wrong at all, a total fluke, but maybe God's way of getting me past the fear?) I don't wish anything like that on you or anyone but I guarantee you'll get past it eventually! And MK & A?? All day, every day in childhood. Just the best! :) Happy Tuesday!

  4. I'm so glad you did this post - it's great to get to know you better! I too have a crazy fear of needles. I was at the pathologist once and when she tried to take blood, I just burst into tears and ran away. I'm mature like that!

    ReplyDelete
  5. finally someone! i TOTALLY agree with the whole mk and a thing. i mean seriously. they are so different. i always think that how can be someone a celebrity journalist without recognising who is who? well, if it's not obvious by now, i'm a huge fan too. i'm 24, and still.

  6. I am so, so, so scared of needles! Everytime we had an immunisation at school I would think about it every day leading up to it, and would always have to have a friend in with me whilst I had a tantrum over it!

  7. Just love your blog! And especially getting to know you through post like this.
    MK and A are kinda the best. I still have a drawer filled with their VHS movies.. It Takes Two is a classic.
    And listing all 50 states in alphabetical is quite impressive!

  8. HOW do people get MK&A mixed up? They have completely different faces and styles! I can understand your frustration with that one, it annoys me too lol

    Funny that you punched a doctor, I'm kind of OK with needles but hospitals in general freak me out - I went to visit someone recently and pressed the pump for hand sanitiser, but there wasn't any in there, which to me meant I'd just touched a whole hospital worth of germs without being able to sanitise after. I walked around with my hands out in front of me until I found some.. I looked like I'd escaped the psych ward! xx

  9. always love the random facts :) and #5, wow! i'm impressed

  10. random facts are the best! I hate needles too but not at that level. I've never punched a doctor :-) After I had Imogen I had to get a whooping cough vaccine and I was so nervous. The nurses kept saying to me "you just gave birth a needle should be nothing" but I still hate them.

  11. Super cute post. I´m afraid of needles too. Never punched a doctor yet but I wish I had hahaha. I love MK&A too <3

  12. Punched a doc once? Bwahahahah. Love it! I mean, poor doc, yeah, but...hilarious. Hee!

    I went through a loooong period wherein I adored Chef Ramsay and his crazy bluntness and profanity, and I still like him, but I think I'm a liiiiiiiiittle tiny bit over him. But only a little! Heh.

    Love this post!

  13. Haha for a moment I really thought tt u were the president of the olsen club. Hmm I still get mixed up over them, they really look & dress alike! :/

    ReplyDelete
  14. OMG I'm with you about MK &A!! I spent far too many years on their board & the potpourri board.....same one as you??

    ReplyDelete
  15. haha your comment on the 50 states makes me laugh. i had to memorize the presidents in order in 3rd grade and recite them in front of the class and i can still do it to this day!! haha

  21. Oh that is so funny you punched a doctor! I'm afraid needles too and I get super weak when it happens. I've passed out before, so my doctors are lucky i dont have the strength to do what you did!

    ReplyDelete
  22. yes, i love the statement about the olsen twins, because i can totally relate! i used to be obsessed with each one of their individual styles a few years ago (now i have semi-changed style icons) and i would get so angry when people mixed them up or mixed up their styles. recent story, i was at a halloween party and i lady was dressed up as mary-kate.. but wearing something ashley would wear. i was annoyed?! haha, oh my.

  27. Hahaha, this made me laugh. My fiance is also ridiculously scared of needles and actually kicked a doctor in the face once.

    Whoops!

    Side bar; I thoroughly enjoyed your post about the sin of comparison, it was raw, emotional, and refreshing. I love reading posts that are expressive in that way and really open up the soul. Sometimes blogging can be so much about "look at this, look at that, isn't it the coolest?" so it's a nice change to see some more authenticity.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love that your husband baptized you, that is just too precious for words. :) love this.

    ReplyDelete
  29. 1) i love little posts like this - thanks for sharing!
    2) that photo of you is lovely.
    3) i am with you on needles. i am a nurse and i HATE getting needles (get all nervous, pull away from people, nothing short of crying), but i can give them with no problem.
    4) silly question: how tall are you? more productive question: how/why/when did you start blogging?

    ReplyDelete
  30. You are so cute, ohmygoodness! Full House was one of my favorite tv shows because MK / Ashley were just so adorable, though I always felt partial to Mary-Kate because we're both double namies ;) Random facts are the best. xo MR

    ReplyDelete
  31. I am equally as obsessed with Kitchen Nightmares! And I agree, you can very easily tell Mary Kate apart from Ashley! :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Haha! I loved this post, its so fun to learn something new about you. :) The MK&A Olsen made me crack up! I would LOVE to hear more about this childhood of yours. xo

  34. I love random facts! #5 is pretty impressive! kinda reminded me of elementary school when we needed to memorize state capitals.. not nearly as impressive though than listing all 50 states in alphabetical order..!

    ReplyDelete
  35. haha very nice random facts. Don't hate me, but I can't tell the difference between Mary-Kate and Ashley :) And I had no idea about Kitchen Nightmares. Is this a show I should be watching?!

    ReplyDelete
  36. hahahaha!! this was great. thanks for sharing! i love chef ramsay...i just wish he wouldn't have such a potty mouth! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  37. I totally crack up at number 3–mostly because I'm the same way! I mean, hello–I was insanely obsessed with the Olsen twins for most of my childhood (and some of my adulthood, admittedly) so I hate when people mix them up!

  43. HOw can you tell MK&AO apart???

    I still sing songs from their "Our First Video" all the time. "I am the cute one, she's just my sister!." "Brother for sale, only 50 cents, bum bum bum..."

  50. I love little glimpses into who people are. I want to know about your dreams, like hopes and dreams not crazy running through the halls of a school then realizing you are a goat that ate everyones homework kind of dreams. Dreams inspire me.

  52. I had no idea you are a convert. That's awesome. My husband is as well. He joined when he was 18 and left for his mission in Mexico a year later.

  54. i was slightly obsessed with the olsen twins too--it is just obvious to me which one is which--which prob makes me sound like a right stalker ;)

  60. I know, I know, it drives me crazy when people mix up the Olsen twins!! I'm like that with a lot of things though. I think it's a little bit of OCD or something. And my husband LOVES Kitchen Nightmares. I find it very fun to watch, but he's obsessed. =) Well, I just started following your blog last month so I don't really know much about you, so just keep doing what you're doing I guess. I love it here regardless of what you post!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Omg! I share the same frustaration as you, I mean how hard is it to tell them apart?! And I totally can name the 50 states in alphabetical order, too! But only by singing the sond of course! ;) Ha!

  62. Ok first, you look adorable on that pic, love the total look.
    Second, I have a love-hate relationship with Chef Ramsey, how can anyone don't!? Im afraid he is going to die of a heart attack one of this days, he rally needs to relax haha

  75. hahah i USED to be able to list the 50 states in alphabetical order through a song i learned in elementary school. anyway, you're blog is super cute <3

  79. Ahhhh this is so fantastic - these are great! My roommate is so scared of needles that she passed out for 2 minutes while getting her flu shot. The doctor said it was the first time this has happened in his 30 years of expertise HAHA.

    Also, I am terrified of needles as well. However, I've never punched a doctor. I am super curious about this story, haha!

  86. You are so darling. And I think it is WAY cool that you can list the states in alphabetical order!! I replied to your comment on my blog, but I wasn't sure if you'd see it...so here it is again: The roads haven't been too bad at all this week, but I'm not sure what they're like in Park City if you are going up there for Sundance. It's still a little icy and parking along streets can be a bit of a nightmare with the huge piles of snow, but we've had some sun to thaw things out a little. Bring a lot of layers, because it is absolutely freezing. We are back to having our wonderfully yucky inversion, so be prepared for that. :) Hope you enjoy your visit to SLC!

    ReplyDelete
  87. The one about Mary Kate and Ashley made me crack up. It's one of my annoyances when people can't tell them apart. They're fashion choices alone set them apart from one another (or at least I think so). I really enjoyed the random 5 facts. It could be fun to tag a blogger to do random five facts about themselves on their blog... or not. Just a thought. :)

And my husband is an identical twin and I get so annoyed when people mix him up with his brother. I mean.... you can definitely tell them apart! Come on people! lol Oh and I am his biggest fan!

  109. Do you use the song to remember the states? You know, "50 nifty united states from 13 original colonies." I hope you know the song and are singing it in your head right now! :) I'd link to it in case that's NOT how you memorized them but I still seeing know how to do that on my phone.

    ReplyDelete
  110. I can definitely tell the difference between MK and Ashley. Maybe not when they were three, but definitely now. I heart them...

  111. I feel you on needles - I'm having my blood taken a lot at the moment and I've had to become basically the rudest person in the world as I discovered that instagram on my phone is the best distraction (OH HAI I LIKE YOUR COFFEE PICTURE I CAN'T LOOK AT MY ARM RIGHT NOW)

    thanks for your comment - happy to discover your blog!
