Did You Know??

-I really love the sun. I hope spring comes soon so I can get a glimpse of it again!!

-I have a thing for shoes. I just can't get enough of them. I will probably never think I have bad.

-I sorta love it when my husband sends me a random text to tell me sweet things like he misses me. =)

-My heart is aching for all the people in Japan right now. We have friends and family who are in various parts of the country right now (all are thankfully safe)...that has made all this so much more real to me. I feel the urge to "get prepared". You just never know.

-I eat a lot of cereal. A LOT. I don't like lunch foods so I eat cereal instead most days...cereal for breakfast and lunch.

-Getting good mail makes my day.

-I'm a night owl. I am rarely in bed before 11:30pm.

-I have a serious sweet tooth. I love my Sweedish Fish, Mike & Ikes, licorice, and Rolos a lot.

-I'm not a very politically interested person. I didn't even vote in the last election (I actually tried to but my absentee ballot never made it to my house). I have opinions but not strong enough ones to get in people's faces about it.

-I am really good at Skee-Ball. Random.

-I am the only girl in my family and then proceeded to have only boys. I still think that's just against the odds!

-I have chicken legs from the knees down. They are both a blessing and a curse. Finding boots to fit my legs is next to impossible...they're almost always hugely enormous on me. My third son who was 10 lbs 2 oz at birth also has chicken legs from the knees down. They are so cutie because the rest of him just doesn't match up. I'm sure they'll get bigger as he gets older but for now I can claim that part of him comes from me.

-I never used to wear the colors yellow or red. I thought I looked terrible in them. Now they are a few of my favorite colors to wear!

-I don't eat salad or most vegetables...and I majored in health in college. Go figure.

-I'm growing my hair out and it's taking a really long time. I'm torn because I think at this length it looks good curled but not as much when it's straight. Annoying.

-I bake better than I cook.

-I am dying to visit NYC again!

-I love Polyvore. Yesterday when I was trying to figure out what to wear I remembered a set I had created a few months ago and ran with it. So helpful!

-I get excited about reality TV a little more than the average person I'm guessing...not all of reality TV, just certain shows (The Bachelor, Say Yes to the Dress, The Rachel Zoe Project, Real Housewives, etc). They're my guilty pleasures.

-I sleep like a log.

-I was once in a place crash as a kid (I was like 8 years old). It was a small plane. To this day I'm surprised that I'm not afraid of flying because of that. Had it happened when I was an adult I think I'd now be terrified of flying.

-I used to collect pajama bottoms. I had a TON! I've since paired down to about 10.

-I love reading blogs...especially fashion blogs! It's so fun to get ideas from others who are much more creative than I.

I don't know what possessed me to write all these random things tonight...just trying to sit here and pass the time until #2, who is afraid of the dark and ghosts (thanks to my dear husband who let him watch Ghostbusters one night), falls asleep so I can move him to his bed. He's finally out so I guess that's my cue to end all this randomness.

By the's what I wore today:

-Skinny Cargos-Old Navy
-Printed Tank-Old Navy
-Ruffle Cardigan-Old Navy
-Boots-Urban Outfitters
-Necklace-Lisa Leonard Designs
-Ring-Forever 21

I didn't realize I was a walking advertisement for Old Navy today till I typed this out...geez!

Over half-way through the week now...bring on the rest of it already!!!

Have a great day!


  1. thanks for sharing about yourself. I myself have a thing for shoes and pj bottom too. What a sweet sugary outfit! It sings spring.

  2. Aww this is great!!! I'd love to give you some tree stump in exchange for some of your chicken leg! Haha. I have absolutely the exact opposite problem as you in terms of finding the right boots. :) I love NYC as well and wish I could go back again.

  3. Thanks for sharing all of this randomness Jenni! It's so nice to get to know more about you. :)

  4. I enjoyed this randomness =) Couldn't wait to get up this morning to read what was on your mind! Thanks! Hope your day is fabulous!

  5. That is such a prety floral print on your top, I love it! And your list was so much fun to read, I don't eat salad or vegetables either (except for corn which barely counts and uncooked carrots and MAYBE spinach if it's smothered in manacotti) that is too funny, I thought I was the only grown up still holding out on healthy choices! I dread the day my boys catch on!

  6. Great outfit, I have that blouse! twins


  7. Love your list and the spring colors in your outfit!! ;)

  8. Nice to know these little facts about you. Love your Old Navy Ensemble. You always find such great pieces from them. I especially love the blouse & the cardi and they pair so well, together. =)
