30 Random Facts About Me


As a fun little "get to know you" post, I've decided to share 30 totally random fun facts about me!

  1. My snack food of choice is Tostitos Hint of Lime Tortilla Chips. I could definitely eat an entire bag in one sitting.

  2. I can solve a Rubik's Cube. At one point I could do a 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, 5x5, and triangle.

  3. I prefer to drink hot coffee all year long, no matter the temperature outside.

  4. I'm left handed, which still surprises people who I've known for a long time.

  5. I can play the piano and flute. I played flute in either a band or orchestra for 11 years straight.

  6. I attended public school for K-8th grade, then transferred to a private Christian high school.

  7. I have always been a Chicago Cubs fan. Baseball is one of the few sports I actually enjoy watching, and it was SUPER exciting to finally watch them win a World Series in 2016!

  8. October is my favorite month of the year (and it also happens to be the month I was born in).

  9. For our first date, my husband and I took the train to Downtown Chicago and went to the Art Institute. It's still one of our favorite date locations!

  10. I really love the thrill of roller coasters - the bigger the better! I would love to go to Cedar Point someday!

  11. My favorite ice cream flavor is mint chocolate chip.

  12. I had my first son when I was 22 years old. Now I have 2 beautiful little boys that keep me busy!

  13. I've been gluten free for 6 years now.

  14. I prefer watching TV shows to movies, and I will never get tired of rewatching Friends and The Office.

  15. One summer my cousin and I decided to roller blade the length of a marathon. I still love roller blading, but the crazy hills in Colorado make it a little more challenging!

  16. I have to sleep with a comforter and socks, no matter the temperature.

  17. My favorite place I've ever traveled is Italy.

  18. I always buy a postcard from the places I travel. They're such a cheap, small souvenir!

  19. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups are my weakness. Pair it with a hot cup of coffee and it's a match made in Heaven.

  20. I'm the oldest of two kids, and I'm definitely a stereotypical type-A firstborn child.

  21. My sister and I were born 23 months apart, and so were my sons! It's funny to me that the age gap is almost exactly the same (only a 4-day difference).

  22. In 2017, I presented a paper I wrote during my undergrad at the National Communication Association's annual convention.

  23. I hate running, but I was on the track team for three years in junior high and high school.

  24. I've worn glasses or contacts since I was 8 years old.

  25. I love colored pens and markers, and I'm sure I have too many (or maybe never enough?)

  26. I've had braces twice - it was miserable at the time, but now I'm grateful to have straight teeth!

  27. I don't really like to drive.

  28. The first time I visited Colorado I was only 6, but even then I knew I wanted to live there someday! We have now lived in Colorado for (almost) 3 years!

  29. I love to hike, and I hope to visit as many National Parks as I can!

  30. I'm a list maker. I have notes everywhere for everything. I find that writing everything down helps "declutter" my mind.

I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed writing it, and that it gives you a little more insight into the person behind the artwork and products you see! Do we have anything in common? Let me know!
