Seven Things You Never Wanted to Know

TGIF!! Tomorrow is my first day off work in 12 days, so as I’m sure you can imagine, I’m really looking forward to it. Plans for the weekend include a 7 mile run (eek), dinner with my girlfriends, church, a meeting I get to tell you about next week, and then going to Philly on Monday to see Harper (and my sis). He’s been home for a week and I finally get to hold him!!!!! It makes me so happy I could cry.

To spice this Friday up a bit, I finally decided to come up with a list of some things I don’t think you know about me. I was tagged a few times with the Stylish Blogger Award but honestly couldn’t think of anything interesting to share, so I have been stalling! Thank you Kara, Stephanie, and Michelle for tagging me!

awardstylish-blogger1This award means they think I have great style (ha!), enjoy reading my blog, and appreciate my contribution to the blogging community. How nice! To accept, I have to share 7 things about myself, so here goes!

  1. Despite the obvious contradiction here, I played Goldilocks in my 4th grade play.
  2. In person, I am extremely sarcastic. My boyfriend always says to just assume whatever I say is not true. If there was a sarcasm font, my blog would have a much different voice.
  3. I didn’t go abroad in college. I applied for a program in Grenoble, France, got accepted, and then didn’t go because it was during my boyfriend at the time’s last semester of college (he was one year older). I came up with several other reasons that I couldn’t go, but they were really just excuses. It’s one of my biggest regrets.
  4. Once, I was in a crowded bar and was introduced to a guy. After we exchanged names, for the first time ever in my life (or since!), I said “What, no handshake?” He replied, “I would if I could.” It turned out he had no arms. True story.
  5. I had emergency back surgery back in 2006. I woke up one day and literally could not get up after having some minor pain for a few weeks beforehand. I was sent to a doctor, then to the hospital, and then had surgery the very next day. Luckily, I’ve had no issues since (relating only to my back, obviously).
  6. I worked at Friendly’s as a waitress when I was 16 through 19 years old, and actually worked at three different locations, crossing the state border into NY for one of them. To this day, I can still scoop a mean cone of ice cream.
  7. My favorite food of all time, hands down, is cheese, and I don’t discriminate about the type. Soft cheese, hard cheese, string cheese, cottage cheese, babybel cheese, shredded cheese, brie, goat, blue, feta. You get the drift. It’s the main reason I could never go vegan. I’ve seriously considered renaming my blog Beth Eats Cheese. No joke.

Everyone and their mother has already done this, but if you haven’t, I TAG YOU (yes, you).

Share something about yourself that I don’t know about you! Do any of the things on my list surprise you? I’m so looking forward to reading the responses.
