Monday Lovin’

It’s Monday. I’m lacking motivation to write today, so instead of writing about things that I’m lovin’ right now, I decided to share 10 fun facts about me. I know that there are some of you who read my blog and who do not know me in real life, and perhaps even for my real life friends, maybe a couple of these facts may surprise you!

  1. I am messy. My bedroom floor almost always has clothes on it and depending on the day my desk may look like a disaster zone.
  1. I am not good at routines. Doing laundry on the same day of the week, getting prescriptions filled, and workout schedules are the death of me.
  1. I have a crazy creepy memory. That’s what I call it. It can be such an asset, but I also have to remember to preface some conversations with, “I only remember this because I have a crazy creepy memory…” I rely on my memory to avoid organization sometimes, but I’m thankful for my ability to recall details and remember special comments that friends have made.
  1. When I moved to college, my 8 year old brother told me that he was going to miss my high pitched sneezes. No lie, I sound like a mouse.
  1. Running is one of my favorite hobbies. It is a huge stress relief, keeps me disciplined and helps me love my body well. I’m currently training for a half-marathon.
  1. I try to plan my outfits at the beginning of the week. I do this in hopes of wearing a variety of the clothes in my closet and not just wearing the same thin each week. It also prevents me from buying things spur of the moment at work just because “I have nothing to wear.”
  1. Not a morning person. I hit the snooze button at least twice every morning. Thank goodness our day at the office doesn’t officially start until 9am, an 8am arrival time would be the death of me. I’ve tried to get in the routine of morning workouts, and I do love them, but see #2.
  1. I will almost never turn down a margarita. I like flavored margaritas, but plain ones are great too. They’re my favorite alcoholic drink, which is perfect because Mexican food is also one of my favorites.
  1. Beach sunsets are my favorite. Beaches are my favorite, too. The sand and waves crashing is like walking on holy ground for me.
  2. I am deeply relational. I thrive on connecting with others. Good conversations bring me joy. Friendships energize me. There’s something so special as a friend saying, “I love you and I trust you.” I joke that my goal at both my jobs is to make a friend. I want the people I’m talking with to trust me, whether it’s information about a country program or which jeans look best. Relationships, they’re what keep me going.
