Me, Myself, and I

Earlier this week Emily at Ember Grey posted some fun facts about herself. She was sweet enough to tag me to do the same! And of, course since great minds think alike, I'm singing the song this week too "I Wanna Talk About Me".
Josh frequently "makes fun" of my quirks. He constantly points them out anyway, so this was an easy post for me. I know I'm quirky and I know I'm completely random. So let's do this, y'all! 7 Random things about myself...

  • I have a bad habit of wanting to share a ton of stuff about my day with Josh right as we're going to sleep. I've done this for as long as I can remember; ever since we started living together back in 2006. He gets so annoyed by it because he's trying to go to sleep. We talk throughout the day anyway, but I always forget to tell him stuff. I remember this "stuff" as soon as we kiss goodnight and lay down. Opps
  • I cannot pronounce "Declaration". I just can't. Josh thinks this is the funniest thing in the world, and whenever we're around a large group of new people he always tries to get me to say it. It always... always comes out sounding like "Dec-a-lation" not sure where the "lar" goes, but my tongue just can't do it. Like some people can't say cinnamon I guess.
  • If you ever hear me say "I have a very important question...", it's not an important question. It's usually something dumb like, "What does shiver me timbers mean?"
  • I have a fear of corn mazes (I get scared that I'll never get out of them.), but Amanda and I totally went through one a few years ago.
  •  I can totally nail the lyrics to Barenaked Ladies "One Week", and when it comes on the radio I totally think I look super cool dancing to the music. Based on people laughing from other cars, my guess is that I don't actually look super cool.
  • Because I work in a manufacturing plant, I always look for products we make when Josh and I go to the store. I did this when I was at my old job too. I'm also the nerd that will loudly point out if I do find something we make. (PS: you'd be really surprised just how much stuff adhesives are used in!)
  • I'm the weird lady in the checkout line at the store that will strike up a conversation with anyone.  Especially if you're in front of me and you have an adorable kid. (No, y'all I'm not being creepy)... I can ususally find something to talk about with the person in front of or behind me in the checkout lines. My mother in law does this too, so when we shop together we talk to a lot of people. Josh hates it. He's such the introvert.
So there y'all have it... seven random things that you may (or may not) have known about me!
I'm definitely going to call out a few ladies that I would like to see do this as well. Since Emily was kind enough to call me out! (Don't worry, Emily I enjoyed this!) I'd like to see this from:
Amanda at Knock on Wood
Lora at Heart of Life
Meagan at All The Joys
Do y'all have any quirks you'd like to share?


  1. I don't think these are weird at all. You seem perfectly normal...maybe Josh is the weird one ;)

  2. I needed some lightness today :) I'm glad you still posted this, Melissa! (I didn't know you knew Amanda in real life!!!??!) I'm laughing over your "very important question" and "shiver me timbers" hahaha (what DOES it mean?!) I do something similar in that I'll forget something and then I'll say, "Whatever it was I know it was really important" (it never was.) These are so much fun, thanks for sharing :)

  3. What a fun post! Glad to learn a few things about you!

  4. This is such a fun post...and if you ever find out what shiver me timbers means, please write a post about it!!

  5. I was about to steal this but now I feel left out and will leave you guessing about my quirks!

    However I will say that I may or may not do many of the things you mentioned.

  6. Thanks for thinking of me! & i accept! :P
