7 Things About Myself
*I have a good amount in common with my award giver, which is why I enjoy reading her blog! She’s around my same age and she got married a month before DH and I did. She just started her family this year, and I’m hoping to do the same!
*All of the hanging clothes in my closet are organized in color order. I even have DH doing it because he’s used to my system. Bwah haha!
*I have a ridiculous amount of kitchenware, thanks to an old obsession with vintage 50’s stuff and an old part-time job at Williams-Sonoma. It took one mover 6 hours to pack up my entire kitchen.
*I could spend 30+ minutes doing my makeup but have no patience for my hair. I don’t want to bother drying it all. I suck at styling and don’t bother.
*I waitressed for 9 years at a 50’s/60’s surf diner and worked at Jamba Juice for 4 years. I can make you a milkshake or a smoothie, no problem. I could even make you an egg cream, if’n you liked!
*As a child, I was mediocre at a lot of things, rather than being really good at one thing. I dabbled in it all – Girl Scouts, little league baseball, tap, jazz, water polo, softball, choir, soccer, etc.
*I’ve always been pretty good at handicrafts. My mom taught me to sew and my machine was the last gift she ever gave me. I have a you-know-what ton of vintage 30’s/40’s/50’s patterns that I can’t part with, as well as fabric, despite the fact that I haven’t sat down to sew in a long time.
