5 Random Things About Me

Happy Friday! Are you as stoked that its Friday as I am? It’s been a long, busy week & my brain is pretty much fried. So here we go… 5 Random Things About Me!

1) I love Britney Spears way more than any 27-year-old adult woman should. I saw her in concert last summer & dressed as her for Halloween in college. Oh, & I still want her & Justin Timberlake to get back together.


2) I pretty much grew up on the back of a horse. I started riding when I was 5 years old & continued until college. I got my horse, Jesse, when I was 7 & I had him until he passed away when I was 21. He was my best friend & I still miss him every day.


3) When I was a kid, I either wanted to be a jockey or an opera singer. I used to run around the house singing at the top of my lungs pretending to be an opera singer. Not sure what happened to that dream. Stage fright maybe? I did sing karaoke to Guns N Roses’ “Sweet Child of Mine” on a cruise ship once & stalked an American Idol finalist.


4) I’m addicted to Twitter. When I first made my account, I didn’t get it & thought it was dumb. That was in December 2008. I actually had my 25,000th tweet this morning & not surprisingly, it was about coffee:


5) I have a mildly unhealthy obsession with the Broadway musical “Wicked”. Last fall/winter, I found a lot of inspiration & strength in “Defying Gravity” & I still listen to it whenever I’m having a moment of self-doubt. Tess & I have been known the post the lyrics back & forth to one another on our Facebook walls.


I’m sure there’s plenty of other random things about me, but those are the first 5 that came to mind. Now tell me 5 random things about you!

  1. 1. I haaaate salmon (in all forms) but wish I liked it bc it’s so good for you.
    2. I know French, a little Spanish, and some Korean and can read biblical Hebrew.
    3. I used to sing and performed at a local mall once.
    4. Ice cream always has been and always will be my weakness.
    5. I’m allergic to all malt-beverages, which includes beer and wine coolers. Very sad.

  2. I love Wicked! Rent is my favorite, though!

    My randoms:

    1. I learned to swim before I could walk. I love the pool. But when it’s warm. I don’t do open water nonsense, hence why I won’t do a triathlon.
    2. Reason #2 I won’t do a triathlon–I was the last kid on the block to learn how to ride my bike. I still hate it.
    3. I was a cheerleader AND in show choir. So very Glee, but not good for the voice.
    4. I was high school valedictorian and voted lost likely to succeed. Nerd alert.
    5. In spite of being incredibly musically talented (I went to college on a piano scholarship), I cannot whistle.

    • I can’t whistle either! Nor do I do open water swims… which is why I haven’t done a triathlon 🙂

  3. I LIVE for Wicked! I think I listen to the original soundtrack at least once a week. I can’t hear Defying Gravity or For Good without bawling.

    I rode a horse one time. I think a horse is an animal I have to love from a distance since I’m terrified of heights and being trampled to death.

    I love that you’re obsessed with Britney! I had to cut all ties during her crazy period, I’m far too co-dependent for that sort of thing.

    Love this post!

  4. Ooooh…B Spears! I have a few too many CDs of her’s and I know all the songs!

    Am yet to see Wicked, although it was in Denver and I missed it!

  5. Don’t worry, I’m almost 31 and saw Brit in concert last year. Totally reasonable obsession, i say! Thanks for stopping by my blog – glad to know about yours too 🙂

  6. I seem to recall you singing karaoke to Shania Twain on a cruise to Mexico once long ago. Jesse was the best pet we ever had, miss him,too!

  7. whatever, Britney is awesome and anyone who says she isn’t is lying. Even crazy shaved-head Britney.
    And I really want to see Wicked! I love all the music and I am embarrassed I haven’t seen it!
