If you want to know me

Today I am linking up with Casey from theweiglands. I have been reading her blog for over a year now and she never fails to have depth in her posts. I love that and for that I wanted to link up. 

Casey's post was titled "If you really knew me." I don't have nearly as many readers as she does and nor have I shared that much about myself on a personal level. I don't expect anyone who reads to "really" know me. 
With that being said, if you want to know, here you go:

I love to listen to people, I love their perspectives. I like to know what drives people, what brings them happiness and what challenges them. 
I am pretty quiet, I listen more than I talk. 
I have my insecurities, but my mom and dad have done nothing but support me and stand by me. I have amazing parents who have always told me I was beautiful - inside and out.
I love quotes and love to be inspired. 
I am a hopeless romantic and I think it is possible to keep romance in any relationship. 
I can't wait for the day I become a mom and B becomes an amazing daddy. That thought just makes me smile, I can't even imagine our kids and what it will be like meeting them. 
I love a clean house and the way it smells. 
If you want to know, I love my husbands' free spirt, I envy him. I truly believe that he brings out the best in me. For every second that I am quiet and observing - he is boisterous and doesn't care what anyone thinks. Gosh I wish I could be like that. 
If I had to choose between potato chips or chocolate I would pick potato chips and then still have chocolate after. 
I want to be a great wife, I admire the old fashioned things that housewives did. I want to sew, cook, clean, be a mom oh, and have a career too. 
I can honestly say I am a bad cook. It just doesn't come natural to me. I will still try to get better everyday. 
When I get an idea or project in my head, I have to do it right then, I get very antsy.
I hardly ever sit still and relax, at any given moment my mind is racing with thoughts and worries. 
I believe in telling the people you love that you love them as much as possible. I tell my parents how much I appreciate them and love them all the time, but it isn't enough. I don't think it ever will be.
 If you want to know, I love makeup, but it wouldn't be so bad to be one of those girls who didn't need it. 
I like to write letters and send mail - real mail with a stamp and cute envelope. I think its because it brings a smile to the person receiving it.
I have a grandma who sends B and I little letters with coupons, we're newlyweds and she's looking out for us. I think it is so sweet.
I think that the best part of a road trip is the unwritten rule of stopping for snacks like beef jerky and corn nuts or something else random that I never normally eat.
Everyday you have a choice to be happy and make that day great. I try my best to be happy every single day but I do struggle with this. Sometimes I am just not having it. On those days I have found that if I start the day doing something nice for someone  else, it's always better.

What about you?


  1. Hi! Visiting from the Wiegand's link up. Fun blog! It's so cute and interesting. Your style is so great (and I love your hair-btw-in that picture on today's post)!!

  2. Oh I'm like you too. If I have a project in mind, I won't rest until it's done, while my husband, on the other hand, will have several project going on at the same time. It makes me really anxious!

    And I used to be a bad cook too. Not that I'm great, right now, but practice leads to perfection! It's all about having fun!

    Have a great weekend :) xx

  3. so cute! You are also stunningly beautiful!

  4. Hi! I'm here from Casey Wiegand's "on your heart" link up! Your blog is caayute! Following now! I love your post! I did one of my own as well! I totally agree- I feel the same way about telling you parents how much you love and appreciate them and it doesn't ever feel enough. Parents have a way of loving us more than we know :)

  5. I just found your blog by random and I love it! I don't know too much about you or your blog fully, but I definitely will view past posts to get to know you more. I really really really loved this post, it was beautiful! You just got yourself a new follower! =) A lot of the things you wrote reminded me of myself and that was intriguing! I am glad I stop by and read this!! =)

  6. You know me... Or knew me, but this might be a fun way to catch up.

    If you knew me: you'd know that I'm a sucker for brown eyes and a great laugh (but tattoos make me melt).
    You'd also know that the way to my heart is a fountain coke or a jar of pickes.
    I truly believe in "let it be," and try not to worry until I have to... It doesn't mean I'm good at it though.
    I pour my heart into my job and love every moment of it.
    If you knew me, you'd know I love to remember old times: forts, jumping in the pool, trading clothes, plays in your garage, and the bed with 5000 mattresses! (everyone thought that was the coolest thing ever).
    I can't hang up with my parents (or leave their house) without saying I love you.
    My biggest heartbreak is not being able to speak a third language- one that would have connected me to my family much earlier in life.
    I am a dreamer and a hopeless romantic- long distance love, miracles, it's all possible.
    I envy the girl who can wear red lipstick without looking like a clown.

    And I can't wait to be a mom after meeting my nephew.
