30 Day Challenge! Day 1

So since I've failed miserably at the 30 Day Shred a la Killian, I mean Jillian Michaels, I thought I'd find a 30 day challenge I could actually survive. Truth be told the Shred DVD is still in the wrapper. Oops. Anyways....when Katie over at Katie's Journey announced this I thought what better way to help me through my wretched blog funk!

If you want to play along, check it out here!


Day 1: introduce, recent picture, and 15 interesting facts

  1. My best friend since 3rd grade is having her first baby as we speak! I'm so excited for her and her hubby and can't wait to meet their little girl, Isla Rose!

  2. For the past 3 generations the woman in my family have had June...for their 30th bday. My grandma was born 6-14-21, my mom 6-7-51 and me 6-6-81. It's been a running family joke that I have to continue this "tradition" which means I need to get pregnant this month. Yeah. Sorry guys. NOT gonna happen.

  3. I went to 3 high schools in 3 years. The first one wasn't a good fit for me so I transferred my Sophomore year. Then my Junior year we moved to Kansas City. Needless to say I wasn't too fond of my high school years.

  4. Barenaked Ladies are my all time favorite band. I've seen them in concert more times than I can count. I have all their autographs and my picture with Ed. I'm kind of bummed they've fallen off the radar.

  5. I have an irrational fear of getting stuck in an elevator.

  6. I blog in advance...a lot...and stock pile them for days I have nothing. I do my best brainstorming in the car

  7. I worked at Old Navy for 6 years. And yes, we talked about the customers on those ridiculous headsets.

  8. I have night terrors. Like jump out of bed and pull off the sheets to get all the "spiders" off kinda night terrors. My husband finds this hilarious.

  9. My DVR lineup rivals that of a preteen girl. One Tree Hill, 90210, Make it or Break it, Vampire Diaries, Gossip Girl, the embarrassing list goes on and on.

  10. My family owns a wine distribution. I love to got wine "shopping" in the warehouse.

  11. We still have some boxes in our house....6 months later. Until we get some furniture in the family room I don't really care.

  12. My mom and I were in the same sorority.

  13. I'm a people pleaser.

  14. I bite my nails.

  15. I'm in a book club for the girls, gossip and wine. I don't actually read the books....most of the time.

Great fun facts! I love the teenage girl line up in the dvr. I am the same way!
And I believe that those are the best parts of book clubs!

Brittany said...

So cool your mom and you were in the same sorority. I always try to convince my sis to go to my college so she can be in my sorority (it's local-not national), but she refuses!!

Nikki said...

Hooray for Caroline!

i am sooooo jumping on this band wagon! i miss blogging so much.... maybe this will get me out of my FUNK!

and don't be ashamed about your dvr lineup! those are all excellent shows :)

ModernMom said...

Barenaked Ladies are your fave band! They are from my neck of the woods:) I knew there was a reason we were blogging buds!
Love the random

Mrs. Bill said...

New follower from the Blog Challenge! I love that you and your mom were in the same sorority. What were you?

Kristen said...

I'd love to see you and my husband in bed together... ok not literally but just think, if you are such a crazy/terror sleeper, my husband is insane like that. Crazy dreams, he's very active, it used to be funny but now it's just annoying! Like he'll talk to me in the middle of the night so I decided to just ignore him, then he's mad at me for not talking. Crazy! lol

Kelly and Sara said...

haha our book club is pretty much just like that!!

Molly said...

#9 couldn't be more dead on with me! I'm also obsessed with pre-teen movies. My mom ALWAYS calls me and says, have you seen the preview for 'so and so' movie, looks like something you'll go see. HA HA! What can I say, I like to think this will help me remain young at heart!

We only live an hour away from each other, too funny!!

Cute blog! Excited to keep up with you :)

Katie K. said...

So glad that you are joining in on the 30 day challenge! One of my good friends had a baby today too! Looking forward to getting to know you over the next 30 days!

Crazy Shenanigans said...

I'm the same way when it comes to blogging for days and scheduling them for rainy day.

Jules said...

This was such a fun post to read and get to know more about you. I love the photo of you by the fire pit and you're looking fabulous, my friend!

My friend Amy used to know all the words to One Week by BNL and I thought that was the coolest ;) I almost did get stuck in an elevator before Lady Gaga a few weeks ago and it was very scary. I can understand your fear.

Congrats to your BFF and her hubby on their baby girl!

Lucky in Love said...

Um, your family owns a wine distribution? How did I not know this? I now love you even more :)

Carol {Everyday Delights} said...

Pearl said...
