If you really knew me…

If you really knew me, you would know that…

1. I always read the last page of the book first.

2. I back-packed around New Zealand by myself.

3. I do not like surprises.

4. Family missing milestones is hot button for me.

5. I can tie a cherry stem into a knot with my tongue.

6. My math skills are comically bad and my hand-writing is worse.

7. I have no patience for small talk so I’ll ask lots of questions to get you to talk about yourself. Because you know you want to anyway.

8. I consider raisins to be dead grapes.

9. I have a temper. I work hard at keeping it under control. Some days, I can feel it simmering below the surface. Yoga breaths help. 

10. I crave the sun.

11. TV/movies are my escapism. I’m intimate with my DVR.

If you really knew me, you would also know that…

1. My family is my numero uno, top-priority, love of my life, and I am feircely loyal and protective of them.

2. I’m a fixer. I am always going to try to make it better.

3. I’m an optimist and do my best not to terrible-lize things.

3. I do not believe in creating problems where they don’t exist, or worrying about something that hasn’t happened yet. Mostly because I don’t have the energy to waste.

4. I pray.

5. I can be exceptionally patient.

6. Home, to me, is anywhere with my husband and kids.

7. There is a silly word that always makes me laugh, and my husband knows it. He can always get me to smile.

8. My brain and my heart sometimes forget my age. I still feel 22.

9. I like to stand on furniture to get a different perspective.

10. I’m an advocate for networking.

11. I will always have your back. You can count on me.

  1. Awesome list! Can’t stand it to know the end of the book first, though-both my dad and grandma do this! I’m going to try the furniture thing-could use a different perspective sometimes.

      Only stand on furniture when the kids are not around, otherwise they’ll think it’s ok to do ALL the time! ;)

  2. “My brain and my heart sometimes forget my age. ” That’s not a bad thing. I’ve never heard anyone remark about how great someone is when they’re “old at heart” … I think young at heart is best :)

  3. Found you at Mama Kat’s!

    I read the last page of a book first too. Loved your lists!

  4. What a fab list! I’m envious of your patience as I have none! I’m intrigued by your backpacking around NZ by yourself. I backpacked around Australia and stopped in NZ on the way back. Hitched around the South Island and loved it!

    • Gingerbreadmama says:

      RE: New Zealand…I was suppose to have met up with a friend but she got a job working on a cruise ship so I went alone. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life! I am envious you’ve been to Australia…that is on my list of places I want to visit.

  5. Oooh, I’m jealous of the New Zealand bit. That sounds amazing!

    • Gingerbreadmama says:

      It was fabulous and one of the best things I have ever done for myself! Doing anything alone, even going to the moves, gives you confidence for so many other aspects in your life.

  6. i loved getting to know more about you thru this prompt, thanks for linking up with this!

  7. Great list! I’m surprised Joss Whedon didn’t make an appearance. ;)

    • Gingerbreadmama says:

      Ah yes, I do heart me some Joss!

    • I like this summary to1.#ou&Y82o7;ve wonderfully and precisely outlined must-do’s for an effective mobile campaign.After going through MMA guidelines, every sms i recieve I’ve begun to poke holes in them.

  8. I knew all of these things with the exception of your back packing trip! That is so cool that you did that. We must discuss the next time we get together.

    I also didn’t know you could tie a cherry stem with your tongue. I can too and it is quite an art.

    I wish I had some of your patience and you’re right, your handwriting is awful!

  9. Hey. I want to drop you a quick note to verbalize my thsulfnknesa. I have been watching your web page for several days and have got a heap of excellent tips plus cherished the way you have built your web site. I’m going to create my own site however I consider it’s too basic in addition to I desire to focus further on certain topics.
