25 Facts

Let’s be honest here.

I can’t think of anything to write.

So here are twenty five facts that you may or may not know about me.

I can name all 195 196 countries of the world.

My husband is currently pretending that my dog is a Pokemon.

My current food/drink obsession is California Syrah.

I’ve been admitted to the hospital {and stayed overnight} twice in my life.

When I find a song I love, I listen to it on repeat.

I can only write my book under very specific conditions {in a dimly lit room with a glass of wine and my music turned up way too loud}.

I am very indecisive {but you probably already knew that}.

I love my dog {you definitely already knew that}.

Someday, I’m going to live in Paris.

I like stinky cheese.

I don’t have the attention span to watch movies at home. Basically, if I don’t see a movie in the theater, I probably won’t ever see it.

I once fed monkeys in Costa Rica.

My grandpa is the best cook in the world.

I don’t like afternoon naps. They give me a headache.

I don’t follow recipes when I cook.

I am Puerto Rica, Cuban, Filipino, and Swedish.

I was once going to be an art history major. And then I was going to go to law school. I have no idea what I’m going to do now.

I love shopping on black Friday. I’ve been known to get in line at Target at seven o’clock on Thanksgiving.

My first job was during Christmas at a small home goods store that my mom works at. We offered free giftwrapping on everything, and now I’m one of the best gift wrappers that I know {other than my mom}.

I also got my natural handwriting skills and my love for decorating for the holidays from my mom.

I’m turning twenty five in February. Holy. Shit.

I’m pretty good at playing Super Smash Brothers on the Nintendo 64. I only play Kirby though {but I can beat both my husband and my brother}.

Speaking of my brother, he is only fourteen months younger than I am. Robert is eighteen months younger than me. They’re kind of BFF. It’s sweet.

My favorite Halloween memory is from three years ago, when Robert and I dressed as Juno and Bleeker. I walked into the grocery store with a pillow under my shirt to get Sunny D and Malibu {they sounded like they would go together…} and the woman in front of me at the register asked me when I was due. It was awkward.

Thinking of twenty-five random facts about myself was kind of hard. I guess I’m not very interesting {this is number 25}.

Haha...I love that you dressed up as Juno. I also plan on living abroad someday and we sometimes pretend one of our dogs is a Furbie. I am going to have to say, I love naps...
Fun list! xo

Awesome list of 25 things, I'm terrible about talking about myself (well when I have to come up with things like this, or describe myself to someone). ANYWAYS - I,too, am very indecisive, do the same things with love songs! Kudos on the monkeys! one day I'll feed monkeys, so far I have swam with dolphins which was pretty amazing, but monkeys is on my list. :)
