The Facts Of Me

I have been obsessing over my heavenly bracelet set from Lovely Dolls. Cross + Infinity + Love = SOLD.

Today Whitney from I Wore Yoga Pants To Work is having a link up called “The Facts of Me.” Let me know if you link up, or comment below, the facts of you.  Did anyone else get the theme song for the “Facts of Life” stuck in their head?  No?  I’m 80 years old.

- One time in college I was late to my ethics class because I was too busy watching YouTube videos of Orcas.  I love me some Planet Earth and Animal Planet.

- I  may have been notorious for recording *NSYNC and Britney Spears videos to learn the choreography.  I pretty much rocked “Bye Bye Bye” and “I’m A Slave 4 U.”  Don’t hate.

- I get annoyed when people think I’m my son’s babysitter.  ”No I’m not his nanny”  ”Yes, he has blonde hair and green eyes”  ”No, my husband does not have green eyes” “No,  I’m not a teen mom”  ”Yes, I know I look young.” “I’m going to walk away now”

- I also get annoyed when people ask if Damian means the anti-Christ.  Luckily, it hasn’t happened more than I can count on one hand.  Damian actually means “to tame” and “of the people”.  There is also a Saint Damian, Damian Rice, etc.  Don’t judge a name from a horrible film from the 70s.  It wasn’t even scary.  I always tell people “How can you judge the name Damian from a movie, when you don’t mind Ted, Jeffrey, Richard, Charles, John, etc?  All of which are names of famous serial killers.  I don’t go around assuming you named them after real evils in this world.”

- I get angry/ mama bear when it comes to my son.  I’m sure the last two facts showed that.

- I collect and read cookbooks like most people read novels.

- I actually enjoy the different seasons.  I love snow, watching flowers bloom, going to the beach, and rocking my scarf and gloves at football games.

- I love eating clean and finding organic/natural products for my family.  I am from Olympia, WA aka the home of hippie central (Evergreen State College).  It’s to be expected.

- On the other hand cake is the biggest temptress in my life.  I said temptress instead of temptation.  Cake is a sexy little lolita trying to ruin me.

- I literally squealed when I found out the Sonics were coming back to Seattle.  In the words of my previous tweet “I feel like Simba just returned to the pride land to take his rightful place as king.”  Now I just need to find an old school Gary Payton or Shawn Kemp jersey.

- Scary movies usually don’t scare me unless they have some historical connection.  Paranormal Activity was a yawn fest to me.  I’ve had paranormal experiences that were much scarier.

I think that’s enough random bits of me.  I want to hear about you!

    Haha, I love Facts of Life…like, I can sing the entire theme song. My 7th grade cheer tryout dance was the Slave 4 U dance & yes I still remember it :) Cake is of the devil. I can’t catch a break around it & always seem to justify my affair with it. It has to stop. There should be a cake anonymous group started..but really.

    There is nothing wrong with being a mama bear! Ha ha I am one also. My son is 10 and people still ask me if he is my brother, and if I graduated even though I got pregnant with my son at such a young age. GUH I was 21 when I had him and I am now 31…I graduated in 99 and had him in 02…

    I am jealous that you have seasons!

    I love me some Whitney, I got excited when I saw a familiar name on the link up page :)
    I’m gonna be such a mamma bear too. I don’t think that can ever be a bad thing. And animal planet..don’t even get me started, I could watch that stuff all night! Haha

    I love the changing of the season as well, there really isn’t anything better.

    And I hear you on the looking too young to be a mom thing. I am a nanny and so many people will be like that’s not your son right, you’re too young. And I’m like you’re right he’s not but he could be so watch your mouth

    I totally learned the Aaliyah “Are you that Somebody” dance by recording it. I used to practice in my brother’s old room in my parent’s basement. I thought I was SO good at it… truth: I was terrible. You can try to learn it if you want…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GuWMW7hVdTs – let me know how you do.

    New follower here… go check out my Facts about me… p.s. I totally wanted to call my post “Facts of Life” just bc I kept singing it.

    Love Love LOVE that bracelet!

    I used to get the opposite with my first son – I’m am fair skinned with blonde hair and blue eyes and he was always olive skinned with very dark hair and dark eyes. Everyone always thought I was his sister or babysitter or didn’t even suspect that I was his mother!

    Cake is so good. I can’t even start.

    Stumbled across your blog a few minutes ago and scrolled down to this post – I participated last week too. :-) It drives me nuts when people ask moms questions like that. How is it any of their business??
    “Cake is a sexy little lolita trying to ruin me.” – I’m going to giggle over that for awhile I think lol. Great facts, and nice to meet you! I’m your newest follower. :-)
