Sixteen in '16

January 8, 2016

2016! Wow. Sounds weird right? I thought I'd end this first week with a bang. And by bang I mean, a little "fun things you might not know about me" post. Let's do this!

{one} I'm originally from Southern California but moved to Michigan for grad school...and then ended up meeting my husband and so I stayed. I still considered myself a Californian....there are just things that are different here in Michigan that I will never understand.

{two} Our Christmas decorations are still up. Hudson has a fit whenever we talk about taking them down. Not gonna lie...I don't hate it. 

{three} I wear yoga pants pretty much every day but haven't done yoga in like 10 years. They should just call them "mom pants." 

{four} I'm a Star Wars nerd. Love me some Star Wars. New, old, you name it. We FINALLY got the chance to see the new movie and it was so good.

{five} I'm not much of a shoes girl. I'll pick a new bag over shoes any day. I have a few pairs of boots, two booties, some rain boots, two pairs of flats, some chucks, and a few pairs of tennis shoes. I doubt any of my heels still fit (thanks baby #2)...and I haven't even tried to get them on. 

{six} I was once the song leader (along with this girl) in my sorority. Which was ridiculous because I am quite possibly the world's worst singer ever. 

{seven} We are currently building a new house and it's almost done! I've got a house update coming your way next week. 

{eight} This girl live-tweeting made me snort like 5 times. 

{nine} I can't stop saying "It's handled". I finally jumped on the Scandal bandwagon. I started watching it on Netflix and now I totally get all the hype. 

{ten} When Harry Met Sally, The American President, The Help, Steel Magnolias, The Wizard of Oz....all movies that if they are on, you can bet I'll be watching. No matter how many times I've seen them. 

{eleven} Snapchat has replaced my frequent blogging. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

{twelve} I'm not sure if we are done having kids. Some days I say yes, we're good with two...and some days I think we'll have one more. 

{thirteen} Green is my favorite color. And it's also my best color. 

{fourteen} If my husband wasn't allergic I would totally become a crazy cat lady. We always had cats growing up....and in fact we have 2 right now. My poor husband suffers through it. Kitties have always had a special place in my heart. I've had 11 total in my life. ELEVEN (Wizard, Tramp, Pumpkin, Mouser, Molly, Pepper, Scout, Bailey, Pancake, and currently Henry and Sophie)

{fifteen}  A new Gilmore Girls and Fuller House on Netflix have me more excited than I should ever admit.

{sixteen} I almost hit publish on this post and then re-read my title and realized I actually needed 16 things. And that basically sums up my life. I think I've got it all together one minute and then the next get distracted by kids, laundry, dirty dishes, the dog needing to be fed, sheets needing washing etc. and then forget where I was.

  1. "Mom Pants" = YES! Haha! So dang true! I actually feel dressed up when I wear jeans these days. ;)

  2. Why people ever let us be song leaders I'll never know! And now you need to start "making a murderer" and I love your snaps. And can't wait to see your new house. And I'm wish washy on being done too (but mike isn't. He's a firm NO WAY) ;)

    1. I love the thought of you two as song leaders!!! So good! ;)

  3. Oh mom pants. And just cannot get into snap chat.

  4. Fun post, but there were 3 more kitties when you were a baby that you don't remember….Blackie, Ethel and Higgins. (from the original cat lady :)

  5. I love Scandal!!! So happy you finally jumped on the bandwagon :) All the Thursday night ABC shows are the best!!! I can't wait for them to come back. I think Feb?
    Also, I'm not much of a shoe girl. In fact, I think the amount you named might be more than I have! Lol. However I do need to get some rain boots since it's ACTUALLY been raining here. So I may need to add one more to my collection!

  6. I was getting so into snapchat and then just fell off the bandwagon. I wish I could comment on the videos... Or is there and I just don't know how?

  7. This is such a fun list! I'm a more than a little excited for Fuller House and Gilmore Girls on Netflix as well and I will happily sing it from the rooftops! Have a great weekend!

  8. Totally with you on the mom pants. Why do they even call them yoga pants! And YES to all those movies. My husband hates it but I watch them EVERY TIME they're on. I think I know every word to When Harry Met Sally and was really sad that it wasn't on anywhere at New Year's!

  9. #16 pretty much sums up my life too! Have a great weekend.

  10. I'm with you on #5 and #12! :) Happy weekend to you!

  11. Wow, that's a lot of cats!!! ;) And I'm scared to take down our Christmas decor too...Arden is going to lose it!

  12. Im a cat person too and feel a leetle betrayed my husband jumped ship and is now a dog person ;) 3 kids is my ideal number and Im not sure if that will be, but I dont mind waiting. Cant wait to read about the new house!

  13. You need to have more kids! The world needs more beautiful babies like yours!

  14. I too grew up in Southern California and married a boy from Michigan, I agree there are many things are are just different there, it's so weird! Also, love me some cats!

  15. I read "Mouser" as "Monsieur" like six times and had to keep looking at it. Funny, both ways!

  16. Mom pans - 100%. Who has time for yoga? I am totally allergic to cats! I feel your husband's pain!
