12 Random Things You Should Know if We Are Going to be BFFs

I always love the posts where other bloggers share random facts about themselves... I feel like it really gives you a glimpse into the real person behind the blog. I did a post like this a while back which you can read here and had a lot of fun with it.  So today I am going to share with you another 12 really random things that you should really know about me if we are going to be BFFs.

1// I used to HATE the beach as a child, now I can't get enough of it. Like can't get enough of it to the point that I am THAT person who gets to the beach at 8am and doesn't leave until after 5pm.

2// My BFF AW and I took swimming lessons with a former marine as children and were pretty much petrified of her.  I actually think our parents may have been petrified of her as well as she had been known to make grown men cry.

3// I love all things pink and sparkly.

4// I am owl obsessed.

5// Monograms are my jam.
I love Monograms so much that my bridesmaids all got monogrammed pashminas as gifts
6// I am a complete and total book worm.  There is nothing better than sitting out on my patio with a glass of wine (or a beer or a cocktail or a cup of coffee) and a good book.

7// Speaking of being a book worm, I ALWAYS finish every book I start reading even if I don't like it at all.

8// I have OCD about things matching (my luggage, lingerie, towels, etc.)... like to the point that my duffle bag pattern matches my suitcase color so that all the travel things (jewelry holder, cosmetic bag, curling iron cover, etc.) can be used with both my duffle bag and suitcase.

9// My hubby proposed while we were eating leftovers, watching T.V. (the show Elementary to be exact), in our pjs and it couldn't have been more perfect.

10// I pierced my cartilage in college because my boyfriend (not M) accused me of being too uptight and not spontaneous. I never told my parents, but they noticed it at a reception at the President's house during Parent's Weekend when they were visiting me.  Let me just say that they were NOT happy with me.

11// I have a slight obsession with purses, shoes and jewelry.

12// I met my one BFF through a mutual friend, but we never really met in person until we had been friends for years.  Our entire friendship was based off of online conversations and then eventually texting.  Yet this girl is probably one of the best friends I could ever ask for... AND we were even in each others' weddings!

What are some random things I should know about YOU if we are going to be BFFs?


  1. I think everyone's engagement story is the perfect story! I love to read too!

  2. I definitely agree...there's nothing like a book and a cup of coffee--I haven't spent nearly as much time doing that as I'd have liked lately. I love that you're OCD about all your luggage matching!


Comments make my day!! Let me know what you are thinking and I promise I will get back to you!
