30 Day Blog Challenge -Day 23

30 Day Blog Challenge -Day 23-15 facts about you...

1. One of my favorite lines from Grease is "when I hear music, I just can't make my be behave".  That's totally me!  I love music that makes me want to dance, wiggle, jump and just be silly!  

2. I have never been a fan of the water, water actives, pools, or any water sports.   I freak out the second someone mentions (even jokingly) that anyone is going to be thrown into a pool against their will.  it's happened to me, and I have almost drowned.   I will go into full blow panic attack mode.  I've taken swim lessons, but I've never been able to get over my fear of water.  

3. I love trying out new recipes.   In my opinion the best cookbooks ever made have been created by the Pioneer Woman.  All I have to say is I'm making a Ree Drummond recipe and my family starts salivating.  I really love that!   (HUGE GRIN!)

4. I have chewed my nails for as long as I can remember, but I am deterred to stop.   

5. I love the color Red and it's my favorite color!   Purple is my second favorite color. Followed closely by green and orange....I don't know why I added that last  

6. I am addicted to crafty blogs. MADE is one of my favorite blogs because it inspires me to learn and try new sewing projects and techniques!  

7. I don't like to check my voicemails.  I only started checking them after I got the iPhone and it's super easy to listen to one message at a time.   

8. I love kickboxing classes. I love the way my sore muscles feel the next day almost as much as the workout. Booya!

9. I really hate matching and "folding" clean socks. I buy mismatched socks for kids on purpose so I don't really have spend so much time finding the pairs in the basket.  

10. I hate driving anywhere new.  Mostly because I don't like to get lost.  Who does right?

11. I love the fourth of July!  I love sitting next to my blue eyed honey watching fireworks lighting up the sky!  Call me cheesy, but I honestly think it's super romantic!  

12.  I love ice-cream!  If I had been a smarted teenager, I'm sure would have worked at one of those cute ice-cream shop instead of the grease bucket I worked at ONE summer!  

13. I'm obsessed with Fruit Ninja!  It's the first App I purchased on my phone and almost a year later, I still love playing it!

14.  I'm sad to say that I have a black thumb. Year after year I buy plants and year after year, each one of those plants dies.   I've given up. 

15. I love to read. I didn't when I was younger, but that changed after I had Issy.   I started to read in front of her just to set a good example, eventually both of us got bitten by the book worm!

30 Day Blog Challenge -Day 22

30 Day Blog Challenge -Day 22 - A letter to someone who has hurt you recently.
This post is going to be pretty boring because I seriously do not feel like I have been hurt by someone recently enough to remember the incident and then write about it.

What did I say? Boring.

30 Day Blog Challenge -Day 21 - Post a picture of something that makes you happy.

Reading makes me happy. I love getting lost in the words and emotions of a good book. Sharing my love of books with the kids is a gift I hope I can pass on to my kids.

30 Day Blog Challenge: Day 20

30 Day Blog Challenge: Day 20-- The meaning behind your blog name.

I can't say that there is a lot of mystery to the blog name. When I was creating our family blog, I often worried about who would be reading it, and what they thought about MY family. I've never been one to really obsess over what people think about me, but when you are putting it all out there, it does make you think twice. Before publishing my first entry, the words "it's who we are" kept nagging at me. And I was right. This is who. we. are. - I feel like no matter how much we evolve, the name will always make sense.
