About Me

Purple is my favorite color.

I'm afraid of small dogs, especially terriers.

I'm the middle child, of three sisters.

I have a hard time being vulnerable; thus, parenting terrifies me on a daily basis.

But my son is worth every clench of anxiety.

I don't really do "girly."

I didn't "always think I'd be a mother."

But I think I'm pretty good at it.

Autumn is my favorite season, spring my least.

I live in Maryland, but still consider myself "from" Michigan.

I moved in with my husband 6 months after we started dating.

I love fast food like whoa.

Coincidentally, I was an overweight kid/teen.

I lost 100 pounds in 2001.

I take thousands of pictures of my son, but don't share any of them online.

I have brown hair and brown eyes.

I'm a people-pleaser but working on it.

I think everyone could benefit from cognitive behavioral therapy.

I cried the first time I used Ny-Quil because I believed I would never wake up (I was 23 years old).

I think Co-Advil is a miracle drug.

I always wanted to marry a redhead, and I did.

I love my husband desperately.

I wrote one novel, and half of another. Both need work.

I like romance novels.

I think I can watch horror movies, but I end up crying and can't sleep.

I want to believe.

I love Disney and Harry Potter and the county fair.

Charles Dickens and Charlotte Bronte are my favorite classic writers.

I'm not known for patience, but I am patient with my son.

If worrying burned calories, I would be a size 0.

I like instant gratification.

I love to proofread and do data entry.

I love rock and roll.

I pray, but I'm not positive to whom.

I try to get others to look on the bright side.

In situations like plane rides and standardized tests, I anticipate the worst.

I believe conspiracy theories.

I think crop circles are supernatural.

It drives me crazy to be "shushed" or told to calm down.

I eat up inspirational quotes.

I should meditate.

I should stop saying "should."

I love lists.


  1. Great list! You and I have so much in common! The color purple, vulnerability, hating to be told to calm down, and those are just a few. So glad you shared this. ;)

    1. Thanks, Kendra! Would love to read your list! :)
