If You Really Knew Me...

This post was inspired by something I read on THIS blog. I liked it and wanted to try.

If you really knew me....

You would know I hate riding bicycles with a burning passion. It gives me great anxiety. I once decided to no longer pursue a guy after he surprised me with a bike ride date.

You would know that I can be too rational for my own good. I have a tendency to believe everything has a reason, rhyme, purpose, etc.

You would know I was nearly a Longhorn and not a Gator. I am so happy a crazy twist of fate landed my butt in Gainesville but UT will always have a place in my heart.

You would know my sister is my best friend. At less then a year apart in age (she is adopted), we always had our ups and downs but no one gets me like she does.

You would know dancing was always my passion and that when I “got too old to dance” a little part of me died.

You would know I am obsessed with my dogs. I talk to them and they (non-verbally) talk back.

You would know I had my first love and heart break at a young age. It’s kept me from being blinded by the feelings of a first love as I’ve grown up, but, it’s also made me guard my heart more than I should.

You would know my hair is a mess. Seriously. I went through what my parents called the “Messy Bun” phase where I would wear my hair in a bun nearly every day because I hated it.

You would know I don’t breathe when I cry. I don’t mean to stop breathing, though. And then I hyperventilate and yeah, it’s not pretty.

You would know every guy that has been in my life has told me he loved me and that he wanted to marry me. Even if I was with him for a month or three years, every single one has said that. It’s actually become a joke among my friends. However, it worries me because most ended up cheating or whatnot and now those words don’t mean much.

You would know that I was meant to be at the beach. Forever. I don’t think there is anything more peaceful than the ocean.

I’d love to know, what is the one thing I would need to know to really know you?

Today’s Pickins:
1.       This Black Pepper Bergamot candle is my current scent. It makes me ready to cuddle up and enjoy hot tea. 
2.       Painting this inside of a dresser bright color is a great way to add pop without having to paint your full dresser that neon pink. 
3.       Outlet Antlers—I need this! 
4.       Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken just moved it’s way up on my “to make” list! 


  1. aw I love this! and no worries, I hyperventilate also ;)

  2. i am obsessed with my dogs too, i talk to them like they completely understand me and my husband and i let them sleep with us in our bed and is it wrong that when we actually have human children i won't allow our baby to sleep in our bed?

    1. I agree. And if it's wrong, I don't want to be right...

  3. Wonderful post dear :))
    Join Estée Lauder Giveaway :) it is international!

  4. LOVED learning more about you! I also hyperventilate when I cry. I'm am such an uglier cryer. hahah :)

    1. Ugh and it seems so dramatic, too! I think it makes people freak out if they haven't seen me cry before!

  5. Don't give up n love dear! I fell in love/got y heart broken at a young age too, but am happy to be with a wonderful guy now :) I also miss dance so much!!!
