25 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Me + Birthday Giveaway!

25 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Me + Birthday Giveaway!

Hey babes! Since yesterday was my birthday, I thought it would be fun to let y’all know a little more about me! Some of these are pretty random. Lol. I picked 25 since I’m 25. 🙂 You might have seen a few of these on my about me page. Keep reading to the end for a special giveaway!

1. I always just say I’m from St. Louis but I actually live in an itty bitty town about an hour away. Lol.

2. I have the best family! They are crazy but I love them! My sister is my best friend and I have the cutest nephew!

3. I’m a huge bookworm! If I have time, I can read a book a day. Lol. I always gravitate towards romance! You can follow me on Goodreads. 🙂

4. I have 3 fur babies. Teddy is a super hyper 2 year old Rottweiler. Lucy is my psycho 10 year old fawn pug and Kaycee aka Booger is a super lazy 11 year old black pug.

5. Halloween is my favorite holiday! I just love dressing up, going to haunted houses, and watching scary movies!

6. I’m always listening to music. I listen to country 95% of the time. Lol. I really like rock and alternative rock too. I prefer 80’s and 90’s music to most of the current stuff though. Lol.

7. I’ve met Chris Young 4 times and been to 5 of his concerts. I’m actually going to Nashville next month to see him get inducted into the Opry. I’m not obsessed or anything. Lol.

8. I have 6 piercings. 2  in each ear, an industrial, and tragus. I’m wanting a few more. Lol.

9. Dirty Dancing and Titanic are my all time favorite movies!

10. I’m a huge lipstick addict. Lipstick is my most favorite makeup item to wear! I have way too many but don’t ask me to count them! Lol.

11. I’m also a huge handbag addict! When I was in middle and high school, I would save my allowance to get a new purse each month. Now that I have expensive taste, I can’t afford that. Haha. I really love the brands Kate Spade, Tory Burch, & Rebecca Minkoff although I would love to own a Louis Vuitton bag one day!

12. I’m obsessed with Kate Spade! Her stuff is just so cute!! I have quite a large collection of her jewelry and a few handbags. Let me know if you would like to see a collection post!

13. My favorite flowers are sunflowers!

14. I could live in my cowboy boots. I can make them work with almost anything! Lol.

15. My truck and I are the same age. She looks young for her age! I just love her!

16. I love all things vintage! I love listening to my vinyl records!  I collect vintage lipstick tubes and compacts. Have you seen my vintage vanity?

17. I would love to move to Nashville one day! It’s seriously my favorite place!! I just don’t think I could leave my family. Lol

18. I’m a night owl. I rarely go to sleep before midnight although I’ve been trying to go to bed earlier.

19. My favorite color has always been pink.

20. I was I Tae Kwon Do for 7 years. When I quit I was a few credits away from getting my third degree black belt!

21. I love my Cards! One of the perks of my job is getting free Cardinals tickets! 🙂

22. I could eat Taco Bell everyday.

23. Crown and Coke is my alcoholic drink of choice! 🙂

24. My favorite color to wear is black. I own entirely too much but it’s so slimming and my hair and pale skin pops against it. Haha!

25. I’m afraid of heights but I’m totally fine, for the most part, on rollercoasters. Makes no sense, right?! Lol
