Guys.  I am 27 today.  I know that’s not incredibly old or anything.  But, it’s old enough to not understand SnapChat or care who One Direction is.  But, it’s young enough to not know any Donny Osmond songs or know how an 8-track works.  So, that’s something I guess?  I was planning on doing a giveaway today…. But, I am still a complete newbie at blogging and couldn’t figure out the plug-in to do it.  Yeah.  I’m sorry, friends.  It will happen.  Soon, I hope.  But, to tide you over and to celebrate a little bit of me, here are 27 things you probably never knew (and probably don’t care to know) about me.


  1. I used to want to be a motocross racer.  I dunno.  Thought it would be cool, I guess.
  2. I love writing research papers.
  3. I don’t like ham sandwiches.
  4. I would eventually like to start an after school program for at risk kids.
  5. My favorite foods are spaghetti  and tacos.  But not together.
  6. I rarely drink soda.  (but when I do, I prefer Dos XX. …Jokes, jokes.)
  7. I love reality TV. Yes, even the Real Housewives series.
  8. I was scared of the dark until I was 13. My mom used to have to sit outside my door until I fell asleep, every night.    27:radmomcoolkid.com
  9. Sadie and I dance in our pajamas at least twice a day.  To Taylor Swift.
  10. I really want to skydive someday, but I’m scared of heights.
  11. I was a ballet dancer for 8 years.
  12. I’m trying to grow my eyebrows back in from years of over plucking.  It’s not going well.
  13. I can’t go hunting.  Or fishing.  It makes me sad.  If I start thinking about where chicken and beef come from… I can’t eat that, either. 27:radmomcoolkid.com
  14. I think my husband is the wittiest person I know.
  15. I am always late.  Always.  It’s one of my biggest flaws.
  16. My parents thought about naming me Melody or Tiffany.
  17. I am really bad at budgeting.  I’m getting better but it has been really, really hard for me.
  18. I have never been in a car accident.  But, I have hit stationary objects.  3 times.  My poor Camry.
  19. I am the oldest of 4 kids. And I come from 3 generations of oldest daughters.
  20. I hate getting up early.  Sadie does too.  We both sleep until at least 9 AM every morning.
  21. I wish I could pull off  wearing hats and headbands.  If anyone knows any tricks, let me know.
  22. I’m an ugly cryer.  Think Kim Kardashian.
  23. I hate spiders but love snakes and lizards.
  24. I like Disney movies way too much for an adult.
  25. I once had my belly button pierced.  Worst mistake of my life.  Pregnant bellies+belly button scars=stretch mark city. I discourage all others from making the same horrible decision.
  26. If I could live in a house with all of my siblings and my parents, and Lane’s family; I totally would.  I think it would be amazing.
  27. I love sugared cereal.27:radmomcoolkid.com

Lol. Happy birthday girl!! You are one of the most beautiful people I’ve ever known- inside and out! You have been an answer to so many of my prayers! You’re a wonderful friend. I hope this birthday is absolutely perfect! You deserve it!
