the one where I talk about myself + free glasses

I don't usually write much about myself. I typically stick to blogging about the kids because they are much cuter and more interesting. But I thought maybe one day, my children will want to know what I was actually like, aside from whatever random memories might stick in their heads. Maybe they'll remember what I sang to them each night, or how I took them to the zoo, but they'll probably forget about these little quirks that make me, me. I'm their mom, but I'm also a person...

So here are a few random things about me, that you probably didn't want to know, but that I hope my kids one day will want to know...

>>> I am painfully shy. This also makes me super awkward in social situations. It's a work in progress.

>>> Getting interrupted is my biggest pet peeve, although I accidentally do it to other people all the time.

>>> My eyes get worse with every baby that I have. Contacts don't like my eye balls for some reason, so I started wearing glasses full time. Wearing glasses isn't my favorite thing, but when I find a cute pair, like pictured above from Firmoo, it makes it much easier (*see below for more details).

>>> I love to sleep, but can never seem to get enough!

>>> I love to read, but am very picky about my books. They have to really catch my attention on the first page, or I just won't be able to get into it!

>>> Making things makes me happy. Okay, if you're reading this, then you definitely know that about me already, but it's a big part of my life so I had to add it to the list!

>>> I love history, mostly world war II era and the Regency period. Love me some Jane Austen!

>>> I watch an embarrassing amount of world war II documentaries on Netflix.

>>> I would pick a podcast to listen to, over music, any day.

>>> When I was growing up, and even in college, dance was my life. I didn't do, or think about, anything else. I never thought there would be a time in my life that I would actually choose to not dance. I do miss it sometimes, but I still get to do what I love even though my passions have changed.

>>> Diet Dr. Pepper is my drug. And Target trail mix. And ice cream.

>>> I can't fall asleep without some sort of noise, but it can't be music.

>>> I love being the mom of boys.

* The glasses pictured above are c/o I love the style that I chose and have had fun wearing them with my many fit n' flair dresses!
