My birthday started off with these lovely pancakes 🥞 and a side of bacon 🐖
And ended with this beautiful dish that Jesse made for dinner ❤️
In honor of turning 25, I will list 25 random/odd facts about myself. So here it goes:
🎬 I love black and white movies and my favorite actresses are Vivian Leigh, Olivia DeHaviland, Grace Kelly, Natalie Wood, and Elizabeth Taylor.
🌈 And despite not being born in the 80’s I also like watching films from back then such as Pretty in Pink, 16 Candles, Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Say Aything, etc. But hey, I married an 80’s baby….Jesse ❤️
🤷🏼♀️ I’m a horrible klutz and cannot be trusted to play any sport, unless you would like your team to lose due to my lack of coordination.
👩🏼🍳 I love to cook, but always send up burning or cutting myself everytime, it never fails!
🍋 I have to drink lemon or lime with my water.
🛁When I finally get out of a hot shower, I immediately sit on the floor in my towel and enjoy the steam floating around the room.
🍵 I love to try new foods! Recently, we’ve been eating a lot of Indian food.
🥙 Some restaraunts that I’ve been craving back home are Pho Dalat, Reginella’s, Five Guys, Jason’s Deli, Mongolian BBQ, Sweet Frog and Starbucks just to name a few…oh and empanadas!
☕️ I drink tea almost everyday. Especially green tea.
🌊 I’m obsessed with any shade of blue.
💇🏼 I used to hate my curly hair, but now I wouldn’t change it for anything. I get the best of both worlds 👌🏻
👠 I don’t really wear high heels except for special occasions, and lately I’ve been only wearing Sanuk sandals which are amazingly comfortable.
🌺 I will forever take tons pictures of flowers/nature anywhere I go.
🙅🏼 I can be indecisive, so whenever I buy beauty products, I can stand for hours in the aisles just comparing ingredients.
🔹The toothpaste must be squeezed from the bottom up.
⬇️ I’m afraid of heights, but I love to go zip lining.
🎵 I’ve played the piano since I was 6.
🎂This is my second birthday away from home and outside the US. The first time was on my 21st birthday while traveling abroad in Israel/Palestine.
✨ I get lost in thought a lot, and sometimes zone out thanks to my ADHD.
💭 My best ideas come right before I go to sleep at night, and then I can never remember them in the morning.
😧 I can be a bit spastic when speaking so my words come out fast, and when I ask questions, people don’t have a clue.
🚙 I enjoy jumping in the car with Jesse and taking long car rides, or just driving through our old stomping grounds back when we were dating.
🌲 I grew up in the country, and made forts in the woods and made an obstacle course out of hay bales for fun.
🌇 Charleston, SC is my favorite city. A lot of my family is from there.
🌝What’s the funniest/silliest argument that Jesse and I have had?! Oddly enough, dinosaurs.
Bonus question: What’s on my mind? Why chocolate cake, of course 🌞
