If You Really Knew Me...

I saw this on Jenni's blog the other day and I had to do it myself!

Sunset on our honeymoon cruise


If you really knew me:

*you'd know that I still think about someone or something grabbing my foot or ankle when I get out of bed in the middle of the night to use the bathroom.

*you'd know that I wear contacts

*you'd know I'm deathly afraid of clusters of bumps...weird, I know. I just am.

*you'd know that I stay up for countless hours in the middle of the night panicking about what kind of mother I am going to be come December

*you'd know I have anxiety

*you'd know that purple is my most favorite color in the world

*you'd know that I refuse (ABSOLUTELY REFUSE) to watch a movie if I know one of the main characters dies or an animal or pet dies

*you'd know that I'm a sucker for anything Michael Kors

*you'd know that I cry at the drop of a hat

*you'd know that I'm really good at spending money

*you'd know I used to be blonde

*you'd know that my sister is my best friend in the whole wide world

*you'd know that I can sing almost any song or remember the most random lines from a movie

*you'd know that I love turtles

*you'd know that I once worked as a news reporter

*you'd know that I think about the past often and always regret a few of my dumb choices

*you'd know that I'm the happiest I have ever been with EVERYTHING in my life. I wouldn't change one. single. thing. Not one.

If I really knew you...what would I know?

We have a lot in common. I can't watch scary movies anymore for fear of things coming out from under the bed or ... get this Freddy Kruger's claws coming up while I'm sitting on the toilet! UGH - lol!

I can't picture you as a blonde.

What is cluster of bumps?

You're going to be a great mom - you are a rockstar person, it'll shine through in motherhood! (and your baby is going to be gorgeous!!)

I also don't like watching movies where some one/thing dies. UGH. I just hate thinking about it (and I also cry way too easily!)

I'm working on a similar post....love this one! And there is no doubt in my mind that you will be a wonderful mother!

Kay said...

I think something is going to grab my leg in the night if I am not completely covered by covers/let any limb hang off of the bed. And nightly think there is going to be a ghost/murdered waiting for me in the bathroom when I turn on the light.. sigh.. overactive imagination i suppose! Haha

And I think if you DIDN'T worry about being a good mom then that would be weird.. Caring enough to worry about it is a sign ALREADY that you are going to be a fantastic mama! :)

great post, I used to be an Education Reporter for a local newspaper too at first making a grand ole $9/hr with my bachelor's degree, gotta love it.

Tami said...

I did a similar post today! It was fun thinking of things... Girl, I remember feeling the same way about motherhood but I can promise you that it will come so naturally! You will be a wonderful mother! That is so neat that you used to be a news reporter!

Young and Fabulous said...

xoxoxo

Michelle said...

Blonde ... really?!

I know you love purple, but I didn't know that you were once a news reporter!! People always tell me that if I wasn't a teacher, I would be a great reporter! HAHA

Sarah Evans said...

My favourite colour is purple too. And I do suffer from irrational fears during the night about intruders etc.

Great post :)

I love turtles too!!! And you are going to be a fantabulous momma! :)

Steph said...

I like this! I am sure pregnancy brings a lot of anxiety and stress about being a good mom, but I'm sure you will rock it :) I also cry too easily, but I love movies with a surprise ending (good or bad)!

Becky said...

My sister is my best friend too! Love this post :) Don't worry about being a mom, we all know you're going to do great!

Mellie Lorissa said...

Love this! Can I steal too!?!?! Turtles are my favorite...my son and I stop (if safe) to help turtles cross the road. :)

Kristen said...

I'm usually the same way with someone grabbing at me when I'm home alone. I will check every room, behind every item. haha

Samantha said...

Love this, i might have to steal it myself :P

JulieBug said...

I love this! Yay for knowing more about you. We have a lot in common. I think I might have to, ahem, borrow this. ;)

Mary said...

This is awesome, thanks for sharing! I may use this next week for my blog and will absolutely credit you!

PS Michael Kors is my favorite too!

Tanha said...

Hope you don't mind, but I "stole" this too. Loved your post. I had 2 turtles growing up. One is still alive...26 years later!

This is a great list and I get to know you better! This would have been helpful for you at 2 truths and a dare, right? lol

Katie said...

I refuse to watch movies if I know they're going to make me sad; especially animal movies. Ugh - can't take it!

Hi Michelle!
I love this idea for a blog post, it definitely helps your followers feel like we "know" you a liiiittle bit better. :)

Purple is the best, no question about it. & I also remember the lyrics to most any song, I've ever heard... it's pretty annoying to my fiance. ;)

Hope you have a great weekend!

Tess @ AModernSuburbanitesLife said...

the bumps! OH MY GOD me too. I call it a rash phobia because I have no other name for it. AND you like longhorns?? I love you more and more each day!

Claire Kiefer said...

What a sweet post! How wonderful to be happy with everything in your life. A seriously special time.

I have anxiety, too. It's much more controlled now (thanks largely to medication) but I've had it since I was 5 or 6, and it used to be debilitating.

Lala said...

cute post, I can sing almost any song you throw my way. Love hearing these random facts about others :)

Holly said...

OMG, I still jump out of bed a good 2-3 feet away from the edge, because I'm still afraid of the dark. Of course, that means that when I'm returning I have to leap into bed - have to protect those feet from the boogie man! Ha!

If you really knew me ... you'd know that I suffer from anxiety and I am a huge movie buff!

tara said...

i think you've cried every time i've hung out with you..

Katie Wall said...

Girl we are crying buddies. I was bo hooing watching a damn Target flash mob the other night!

Bri Buzali said...

What a cute post idea! I have anxiety and cry too, and love MK stuff!

Heather said...

I saved a turtle in the middle of the road a couple weeks ago! I should've taken a picture for you!

Stephanie said...

This is so cute! I'm kind of stealing this idea... ;) but of course, I'll be linking to you. <3

I have TERRIBLE anxiety too...you are DEFINITELY not alone there...

Candice said...

Ha! So this is suuuper weird, but when I go to the bathroom I have to check the toilet bowl a few times (before/during etc.) to make sure there's no snakes or anything that could bite my ....

We live on the third floor of an apartment complex so I know its irrational but I still gotta' check!!

Mrs_V820 said...

haha.. when I get into bed I always HOP into it.. so nothing will grab my feet. haha. My husband asked me why I always do that (because sometimes I do jump over him so I dont have to walk ALL.THE.WAY.AROUND. the bed.) and I told him.. he thought it was the funniest thing in the world.. and now yells "cockroaches are gonna get your feet" when I come to bed.
ya.. he is a sweetheart. lol

Shelley said...

I love reading these random facts! So fun to get to know you better! :)

Jenny said...

Love these posts!
I can relate to so much of this. I'm also deathly afraid of something grabbing me from under the bed. I have the same fear of someone hiding under my car and grabbing my ankles when I go to get in it. Sometimes I look under before I get in when I'm in really sketchy parking lots :)

Whitney said...

We have so much in common! In fact, I think we have more things alike than not from this list! I also love turtles, have anxiety, used to be a blonde, cry easily, wear contacts, sing almost any song, and so many more! haha!

Megan said...

This is cute!! You are going to be an amazing mother!! I have no doubt about that!

Sarah Evans said...

Maura said...

you are going to be a FANTASTIC mother! you have nothing to worry about! and i most definitely cry at the drop of a hat too!

Kristin said...

It has been SO fun reading all of these "If you really knew me..." posts this week. I love getting to know bloggers a little better, and in your case, getting to know you for the first time! My sister HATES clusters of bumps too (!), and I can't watch movies where a main character dies either.~ So glad I happened upon your blog :-) Have a wonderful Tuesday!

applesandglue said...

really good at spending money? Hmm, I may need your help. :)

Mary said...

I loved your post and did one myself! Thanks for the inspiration!
