Blogtober 2014 {7 Facts About Me}

Family selfie after the Giants won their 3rd World Series in 5 years!
Hi friends!

First things first...


We're stoked over here.  The Bay Area is in a happy place and it's hard to describe if you aren't in it.

But anyways, remember this post?  Thanks to Blogtober (which ends TOMORROW), I get to give you more random facts about myself.  Hurray!  I know you're super excited.  They're all really important...

Fact:  I've never seen Titanic.  Except for the "bad" scenes.  Because of course I found a way to see those when that movie came out and I wasn't allowed to watch it.

Fact:  When I was younger, I used to throw all my clothes to the middle of the room just so I could re-fold and organize them in my dresser.  Things haven't changed.  I definitely did this last week.

Fact:  I'm a sports lover but can't stand watching the NBA.  I could care less and really, those guys are just annoying. 

Fact:  Growing up going to camp and youth group at church, I was always chosen to do the eating contests and I usually dominated.  Lessssbihonest, more like volunteered.  

Fact:  I ran cross country in the 6th grade.  Ironic?  Especially after this post.  I was not good and my dad so graciously always waited for me at the finish line to cheer for me even though I was usually close to last place.  Thanks, Dad!

Fact:  I don't like sticky fingers.  We plan to carve pumpkins tomorrow night and more than likely, I'll have husband pull out the guts for me.  Girly?  Whatevs.

Fact:  Although I much prefer warm and sunny weather, I have an addiction to jackets and sweaters.  Seriously, it makes no sense considering I live in California but I neeeeeed this.

Get ready for tomorrow, folks, for the last day of Blogtober - Halloween costume reveal!  We made it.  Whew! That was a doozy.

Blogtober 2014 {Most Embarrassing Moment}

I actually don't get embarrassed super easily.  I'd like to say I'm pretty good at laughing at myself where I'm sure I probably should be embarrassed.  Life is definitely way more fun if you can just laugh at yourself - don't you agree?

I don't really have that one classic Most Embarrassing Moment story, but I can tell you about a semi-recent one that my sister still laughs at me about.  

We had just parked and gotten out of the car in a parking lot.  The first thing I noticed on the car next to us was an obnoxious sticker on the window that read "I (HEART) RUNNING."  To me, it was obnoxious.  People who brag to strangers that they work out is obnoxious to me.  It's totally cool to brag to your close friends or your spouse - because sometimes that can be encouraging and keep you accountable to keep doing it, but when you post on Facebook that you went to the gym that day?  That's a little obnoxious.  Is anyone with me on this?

(Sorry, this is so negative of me and I don't like it.)

Well, I decided to totally mock the sticker and tell my sister super loudly how much it bothered me, all while not realizing that the owner of the car was RIGHT THERE.  She looked at me and said, "Excuse me?"  


My first reaction was to laugh and tell her that I just get jealous of people who love to run since I do not enjoy running and wish that I did.  She awkwardly laughed and got in her car.

Then I ran away.


The funny thing is, I'm pretty sure what I said to her was actually true.  I probably think that those stickers are obnoxious because I wish I was one of those people.  I totally wish I loved running.  Even after accomplishing my half marathon (which, the race in itself was super fun!), I still don't like running and I still don't do it consistently - but if I loved running?  I'm sure I would always be in awesome shape!  And I'd love to be that girl running 6 miles daily because I just love it.  Who wouldn't? 

So in summary:  
I still don't like running.  
I need to keep my mouth shut.  
I wish I loved running.  
Running stickers aren't that obnoxious.
Facebook statuses about going to the gym are still obnoxious. 
Did I mention I still don't like running?
