16 Weird Facts

Morning morning!

For Friday this week, I didnt go anywhere special or new for breakfast. I didnt even go anywhere for coffee… (gasp!) can you believe it?

I am instead, enjoying an apple cinnamon bran muffin that I picked up from my grocery stores bakery section the other day. They are so good and moist (and big).

I cut my giant muffins into quarters because I dont like messy food and this keeps it a bit tidier when eating. 😉

I have been keeping my eye on the weather channel to check out Irene since it is supposed to hit NC tomorrow. Luckily we are inland and they are saying our county may not even get any of the rain.

As you can imagine this has been an extremely busy week at work for me since I work for an insurance company and we have been getting many calls from customers making sure they have proper coverage for the incoming hurricane. I dont really want to talk about work on the blog very much and will keep this very short and sweet, but because I know a lot of people find insurance boring there are many people that dont stay educated on it. If you rent, please get renters insurance! In most states you can get a policy for less than $100 per year which will cover your personal belongings in case of a loss and most policies will also cover additional living expenses for you to stay elsewhere should your apartment/rental home become unlivable! It could be a huge life saver! The last thing you want to happen is be faced with the devastation of losing everything that you own and then be stuck having to re-purchase everything out of your pocket. I think many renters dont have it because they arent aware it is offered and also dont realize how inexpensive it is!

Okay okay, I am done ranting about the boring stuff, now onto the goods!


So in all fun, I was tagged by the lovely Dawn at Blonde on a Mission for the 16 facts survey.

As you know I love to read and these fun things about my favorite bloggers to learn more about them so I figured this is a good chance for you all to learn more about me!

#1. What’s a nickname only your family calls you? My parents call me bug because I had giant eyes when I was little haha. And my sisters call me Yaw Yaw Shaw because when I was little I had a bad speech impediment and when people would ask my name I would say “Andrea Michelle” really fast which sounded like Yaw Yaw Shaw.

#2. What’s a weird habit of yours?  When Im laying in bed trying to fall asleep I always play footsie with myself. I dont know what it is but rubbing my feet on the blanket/sheet/each other helps me fall asleep, I think because Im so fidgety

#3. Do you have any weird phobias? I cannot stand when people touch my armpits. Torrance always does it to mess with me or like if I have my arm up or open I always feel super vulnerable. I have no idea why. And bees/wasps

#4. What’s a song you secretly love to blast and belt out when you’re alone? Ice Ice Baby. dont judge me… I especially love the first verse and always belt out the very beginning… “STOP! Collaborate and listen ice is back with a brand new invention!” Oh and then at the end when he says “word to ya mother” yikes…

#5. What’s one of your biggest pet peeves? Debbie downers (pessimists) it is extremely frustrating being around someone who is a nay sayer

#6. What’s one of your nervous habits? I pick at my cuticles. I do it a lot anyway, but even more so when I am nervous.

#7. What side of the bed do you sleep on? If you are laying in bed, I sleep on the right side because it is furthest fro the door. Yes I make Torrance sleep closer to the door so he can protect me. or at least so I can throw him in the way of an intruder haha

#8. What was your first stuffed animal and it’s name? SNOOPY! I still have it him packed away for momento purposes. he was my favorite.

#9. What’s the drink you always order at Starbucks? Grande (ok Venti) Iced White Choc Americano (only 1 pump of white choc) with a little nonfat milk!

#10. What’s a beauty rule you preach, but never actually practice? I honestly dont really have one because I definitely do not preach any beauty rules.

#11. Which way do you face in the shower? Away from the water, so that the water hits my back. I hate water in my face!

#12. Do you have any ‘weird’ body ‘skills’? I can control how the tendon on my middle knuckle moves back and forth. That sounds confusing but just trust me, its weird. And also, I can touch the bottom of my chin with my tongue. Gross huh? I will spare you a picture.

#13. What’s your favorite comfort food thats ‘bad’ but you love to eat it anyways? Cake! I love it. And carbs. tons and tons of carbs

#14. What’s a phrase or exclamation you always say? I say “sh*t!” a lot… I know its probably not good but it just happens! And I always laugh at everything, even say “haha” when I am typing all the time (haha)

#15. Time to sleep, what are you actually wearing? Aerie striped shorts and plain racerback tanktop, pretty much every night. And I have to wear a bra when I sleep, but I only have certain ones I wear to bed because they get stretched out.

Most perfect sleeping shorts ever!

#16. What did you used to wear that you thought was cool but now you realize it wasn’t that hot? I would definitely say anything velour or overalls haha. Oh man, I could probably go on for a while about this one because in middle school I also went through a phase where I would wear blue mascara (ahh) and I was known to wear my hair in pigtail buns 5 days a week….I am happy to report I have no picture of this to share with you (or not that I know of!)

And in the spirit of the game, I tag these gals to share their answers on their blogs!

  1. Ohh velour…. what an unflattering fabric. I had way too much velour back in the day, lol. I love the carbs answer. That’s definitely me too.
    And I totally play footsie with myself too! It really disturbs my boyfriend when we’re trying to sleep because it just sounds really weird lol.
    Thanks for doing the survey 😀

  2. Oh of course, these are always fun!
    haha I mean im sure there were a good amount of girls out there that got into the velour it was just part of the awesome fashion for a while. and i have overalls on my bad list because i have big hips and they were NOT a good look for me but apparently thought they were for a while. haha
