32 @ 32

A few weeks ago I read & loved Andrea's birthday post, so I felt inspired to do one too!
Today, as I turn 32, I wanted to share 32 things about me!
  1. I am addicted to coffee...especially Dunkin Donuts iced coffee with extra cream and extra sugar. (SUPER healthy).
  2. I'm a very picky eater. It's mostly a texture thing for me, and apparently it's hereditary because my grandpa was the same way with the same foods like onions!
  3. My favorite color is ORANGE! #govols
  4. I know football better than most boys. I blame living in SEC-country for that!
  5. I always wanted a big family, and I love being out-numbered!
  6. I learned to play the clarinet in middle school, but secretly I wanted to take piano lessons.
  7. I wanted to be Aurora or Belle when I was growing up.
  8. Boys bands were so my JAM! NSYNC, BSB, & NKOTB will always have a huge piece of my heart!
  9. I love back-to-school shopping.
  10. I once broke into my car with 2 eyeliner pencils at a track meet. #macgyver
  11. When I was pregnant with Nataleigh, I memorized British royal family trees!
  12. I have only told one man that I loved him, and then I married him. 
  13. I took 2 years of Spanish in high school, and tested out of it when I got to college. I, however, wanted to continue to study French, and I still love the French language! 
  14. Cookie cakes from the Great American Cookie company & my grandmother's Red Velvet Cake are my desserts ever. 
  15. Laundry is my favorite chore. I love stain-treating, washing, drying, folding, and putting the clothes away. 
  16. I call my Jo Helen daily, and she is still my best friend!
  17. I'm severely allergic horses.
  18. I could eat pizza every night, but I hate cooking the same things every week. 
  19. I dream of Paris, Berlin, Vienna, London, and so many other places full of history!
  20. Housewives, any & all, are my favorite reality shows.
  21. I could pack up and move at any minute. I love the idea of a fresh start & a new adventure!
  22. Fixer Upper makes me want to move to Waco, like yesterday.
  23. I am super good @ Wheel of Fortune, and my husband HATES watching it with me!
  24. Pedicures may be the greatest thing ever.
  25. I have a super love/hate relationship with my mini-van.
  26. I lack artistic ability, and I'm super envious of people who are artistic. Teach me your ways!
  27. I love to drive, and I'm a terrible passenger.
  28. I am that mom that is yelling & cheering like crazy. Stephen, at 9, has already had the talk with me, but I can't help it.
  29. As a kid, I was the kid who was sent home from fishing at my Poppy's farm for talking too much. Then I had to walk up that big ole hill by myself, so now I hate, loathe, despise fishing in general. 
  30. I'm a slight, okay a major, germaphobe, and I break out my sanitizer all the time!
  31. Tulips over roses any day of the week and twice on Sundays!
  32.  I am so stinking scared of bugs...every kind of bug!!!

I love my birthday, and I am so thankful for every birthday that God gives me.
I don't know about you, but I'm feeling 32!! 
That's how that song goes, right T. Swift!!


  1. Love this post! We watch Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune every chance we get...I rock at Jeopardy, but cannot solve a puzzle on Wheel to save my life. You would do a big ol' face palm. Hahaha! I loved this post and happiest of Birthdays Britt!

    1. Oh I love Jeopardy too, but I'm crazy good @ WOF! Thanks for the birthday wishes

  2. I love these posts and I can relate to so many - I love tulips and Amy spring flower. My sister is a huge Vols fan, going to high school in Knoxville TN will do that I guess! Early on in our marriage I always drove when we were together, I blame it on car sickness but it was also because I preferred driving...I let him drive now but I have to sit in the front seat!!! Happy birthday sweet friend so thankful we met :) xoxo Erin

    1. Thanks for swinging by, and thanks so much for the birthday wishes. It's been a great day so far!

  3. I love that you memorized the royal family trees, and that you broke into your car with eye liner pencils. Hahaha! I think we should be friends, for no other reasons, than these! ;) Hope you have a great birthday! :)

    1. Absolutely!!! The eyeliner story is one that I don't know if I should be proud of myself or upset that I yet again locked my keys in my car. #facepalm
