I’d much rather hear the truth up front than get BS from anyone, and generally return the favor. Not a mean person, but not a sugar-coater either. I believe in honest communication.
If there’s one thing I try to avoid being at all costs in my life, it’s cute. What am I, a six year old girl with pigtails?
Aside from singing, I play several musical instruments, including but not limited to: the piano, viola, pedal harp, timpani, marimba bells & vibes, and various other auxiliary keyboard instruments.
I have about nine different kinds of mint lip gloss. I just really love mint things. And I’m told it’s not so bad second hand either.
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year.
My birthday is on 1/11. I was born at 1am. I weighed 11 pounds. I had 11 fing— JAY KAY, regular fingers and toes. ;)
Eighty-seven percent of the things in my closet are striped. I may or may not have a baby-addiction to them. But herringbone pattern/texture is still the winner for me. Fave.
I have seen every episode of FRIENDS ever made. And I could watch them all over and over again.
I am THE biggest sucker for beards and scruff. Seriously, plus like seventeen hot points if you’ve got it. Mmbaby..
Yep, red hair.
I was born with a hole in my heart. Pulmonary Ductus Arteriosis I believe. When I was 17 a doctor finally caught it due to my particularly sloshy heartbeat and I had “non-invasive” surgery in which a little plug was put in the hole. Now, I can climb mountains.
I really, really love broccoli.
I am five feet and ten inches tall, and I love to wear heels. If a guy can’t stand up next to me in my sparklies, he doesn’t pass the boyfriend test.
I’m not near-sighted or far-sighted, but I have astigmatisms in both of my eyes, and technically can’t legally drive without glasses or contacts.
I would rather sing a solo in front of a large group of people than give a speech, and in fact have made this very trade off more than once.
I have this thing about spoons. I always try to use the smallest spoon available to me. Don’t like feeling like I’m trying to shove a small cereal bowl into my mouth.
I am violently, deathly allergic to cats.
I think Abraham Lincoln was a cool dude and I have a picture of him in my office.
Someday I would really like to travel to Switzerland. Switzerland and Alaska. Top of the list.
Zachary Levi is my only celebrity crush. Hot. Dang. What a fresh and delicious looking piece of man…
I can’t eat mushrooms. Wish I could, but the texture makes me gag.
Anthropologie stores are my favorite retail establishments in the whole world. I could go there every day just to smell it and look at and touch everything, even if I usually come home empty handed.
I lived in San Diego for seven years and Arizona for ten, and I’m still as white as a whales belly. And I’m good with that.
I have three amazing sister whom I love ohso much. Sometimes, we are opera singers. :)
One of my pet peeves is when people complain that they are bored. There is never really a good reason for this. If you’re “bored” it just means that you are lazy and un-creative and wait around selfishly for others to entertain you. How unbecoming.
I have one tattoo. (It’s pictured in the header.) It’s an octopus with a little blue bird sitting on his head. The octopus lives in the very depths of the ocean, grounded, stable, resilient. The bird flies high in the sky, free, wild, unrestrained. I think we all have a little octopus or a little bird in us, but the important thing is to find the balance between the two.
I prefer gold jewelry over silver.
Jimmy Eat World will always remind me of my first boyfriend, Ben.
I’ve discovered that it takes a minute and a half to incapacitate a housefly in the microwave.
Being late makes me suuuper anxious.
Kitchen appliances turn me on.
