If you really knew me...

me. circa 1987.



Saw this post from Jenni and then Megan so I’m going to follow suit.  Here goes!

If you really knew me...

You would know that Ruffles Potato Chips dipped in Ranch and chocolate chip cookies are the best snack ever.

You would know that my parent’s veterinarian specifically told me NOT to get a Yorkiepoo because of their unpredictable temperament and the next week I went out and got me my Yorkiepoo.

You would know that my Yorkiepoo is a psycho pup and brings so much joy to our lives.

If you really knew me you’d know I’m a terrible singer but ALWAYS sing happy birthday to my best friends on their birthdays – sometimes in a funky accent.

You would know that I’m named after my Grandmother and my Aunt.

If you really knew me you’d know I love a tall glass of chocolate milk or a warm glass of vanilla soy milk every night depending on the season.

You’d know I’m a terrible cook, but try to pretend I know what I’m doing.

If you really knew me you’d know I hate washing my hair.  Like really despise it.  Because then I have to dry it to make it look decent and not frizzy and ugh, that just takes too long.  So I’m a big supporter of the dry shampoo.

You’d know I love spaghetti, red wine and dark chocolate.

If you really knew me you’d know I have a terrible sense of direction and almost always get lost.
You’d know when I get flustered or frustrated I get short, often with the ones I love (something to work on).

If you really knew me you’d know I’d do anything for my friends and family and I get super defensive when it comes to them. 

You’d know I struggle with fear.  Read more on that here.

You’d know I also struggle with forgiveness and letting go of the past.  I hold grudges and sometimes let the past consume me.  That’s when God shakes me upside down and says “Wake up Child, it has been forgiven.”

If you really knew me you’d know I’m a control freak like no other.  Working on that one too.

If you really knew me, you’d know I have an obsessive compulsive order when it comes to buying clothes.  You’d know I have a few items in my closet with tags on them that are over a few years old (embarrassing).

If you really knew me you’d know that my favorite movies are Grease, Father of the Bride and any Reese Witherspoon movie.

You’d know I wish I knew more about politics and feel completely uneducated when election year comes around.

You’d know that I’m sensitive and often worry too much about what others think.  The tone of anyone’s voice can send me into tears despite the words that came out of their mouth.

Last, if you really knew me you’d know I love hard and I love deep, with no reservations and no hesitations.  And you'd know that I fell in love with my husband years ago, and continue to fall in love all over again when he smiles.

OK, I just bared my heart and soul to you – what would I know if I really knew YOU??
