If You Really Knew Me...

Friday, August 3, 2012

Yep. I'm jumping on the bandwagon! I've been a bandwagon fool lately. Here's what you would know if you really, I mean really, knew me....

Soaking up the summer in Galveston (with Mr. Parker) and San Diego (with Mr. Hubs).

If you really knew me, you would know that I am always late. To literally everything. Yes, I am that girl.

If you really knew me, you would know that I have cried after every single one of those Olympic P&G commercials. Apparently motherhood has made me a complete sap.

If you really knew me, you would know that I am always in search of one of these three things : my phone, my keys, or my sunglasses. I have currently been missing my keys for a month now. *sighs*

If you really knew me, you would know that I am 5'9'' tall and am fascinated to find out how tall other people that I only see in pictures or on television screens really are.

If you really knew me, you would know that I love church camp, fish fries, fall and winter clothes, sushi rolls, mexican food, a clean house, and a completed to-do list.

You would know that I love Sonic diet cokes, you would know that my favorite day of the week is Sunday, my favorite dessert is chocolate chip cookies, my favorite movie is Pride and Prejudice, and my favorite book is A Thousand Splendid Suns.

If you really knew me, you would know that every time I say, "I'm doing good!", I always mentally correct it to, "I'm doing well!" but never say it out loud. Every. single. time.

You would know that I am very hot-headed and always overreact to problems right when I find out about them. I'm also very sarcastic but only to those who know me really well. ;)

You would know that I am NOT a hugger/mushy/sappy person with certain people but totally am with others. And I like all of these people the same. It's weird. I think I have multiple-personality disorder.

You would know that I am a hypochondriac. Bad.

If you really knew me, you would know that if I could have anything in the world it would be to live closer to my family.

You would know that I am an obsessive planner. I've been planning Parker's first Halloween costume and first birthday party since before he was made. I'm being serious, too, which is a teensy bit pathetic. ;)

You would know that I get offended when people don't include exclamation marks and emoticons in their text messages. Bryan and I have had many a "conversation" about this.

If you really knew me, you would know that I look up to my nanny, my mother, Bryan, my dad, and my mother-in-law for their many different strengths. I dream of combining them and becoming the best person ever! (You think I'm joking....but I'm kind of not :))


So, do I have any quirks in common with you all? Hop on the bandwagon with me! What would I find out if I really knew YOU?

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. 5'9"?! I never would have guessed... But I think because I'm a shorty (5'3"), I automatically assume everyone else is too until I meet them or they tell me otherwise! Guess I need to start being more observant of height clues in blog photos lol

  2. Oh Katy, this made me CRACK UP, giggle, say "AWW," and smile. I love all this about you and love most of all that you are so GREAT!


  3. After reading this I think we would be friends in "real life!" ha Totally obsessed with Diet Cokes from Sonic, wish we had one close by. Love making list, and I have totally been planning my son's 1st birthday and Halloween costumes since day one... maybe even before he was born too! ha Happy Friday!

  4. Bahaha! I get offended if something texts without using "happy" punctuation too...lol! I always wonder if they're mad at me! Glad to hear it's not just me! :)

    evie @ brown paper packages

  5. Whoops, that was supposed to be someONE not something...hee hee

  6. I am late to things too, such a bad habit of mine! Oh and I loooove sushi rolls and mexican food, yum! Hope you have a great weekend and so glad I came across your blog. Looking forward to following!

  7. Ok, the texting without exclamation marks totally cracked me up. I am the same exact way. I avoid texting those people at all costs!

  8. i'm actually really shy, and it sometimes leads ppl to think i'm mad or stuck up. im just not in the need to be the center of attention at all times!

  9. I'm the exact same way with text punctuation!! thats so so funny, I always tell my boyfriend that "I miss you so much." is read totally different than "I miss you so much!" LOL maybe its a woman thing :-P

  10. This is great! I didn't know you were so tall. I love these posts...so fun to learn more :) I'm sort of always late, too. Other than to classes at school. Then I'd be embarrassed if I was late haha. (ps. notice I'm playing blog catch up right now. love allll your posts!!) xo M

  11. Katy,
    Your keys are here in colorado at home. I think I had them in my purse when I came back from Lubbock. oooops! sorry! love, your always late, Mom;)

  12. You are so happy ! Best wishes to your family!
