This one post was inspired by my bestie funny gal Kristen who I am so sad she is leaving me for Australia to go on Holiday. I mean shoot doesn’t that sound so fancy?? I want to holiday in the South of France instead of taking a long weekend to catch up on my backlog of sleeping hours. Anyways in her post yesterday she corrected peeps by saying it’s not weird…..it’s just different and that got me to thinking…….
I have some new friends that stopped by yesterday from the Hump day linkup so I thought I would take this opportunity to share some things about me that are different not weird. Great little way to introduce myself right? Or for the regs (I tried to abbreviate or abbrev if you will….I don’t think I can pull it off?) Here is some new insight for you. Without further ado….
10 Ways That I’m Different Not Weird
#1 I always drive barefoot
It drives my mother absolutely nuts but I feel like I don’t have full control of my car unless I drive barefoot. Plus I live in FL and I think I’ve clearly covered my complete rage with every single inhabitant that clogs the roadways down here. I also feel like I’ve come a long way from my days of driving when I was 16. Side note. Please do not think that by me stating I drive barefoot means I condone sticking your foot out that window. Because I don’t. At all. Like ever.
#2 I go back to check if the door is locked nine times out of ten
You know what??? It’s never once been unlocked….but I’ll be damned if it’s the one time I forget to check and I come home and goodbye Macbook and jewelry. Oh and now someone is hiding in my shower.
#3 When I teach Barre in the early morning…..I run to my car in the parking garage
My motto better be paranoid than dead.
Here are some other paranoid tendencies.
#4 I am the youngest of six kids
If you have a second read this post…..it will all make sense after that.
#5 When I commit myself to something, that Type A side of me takes over
I am currently obsessed with getting Marks law website into the first search engine page of google. I think it’s insane to pay someone to SEO optimize your site. I mean I can watch youtube videos for hours, read up on blog posts about the subject and devote hours of time to something like that because I will figure it out. If that means sending a mass email to my family members about google searching specific keywords and clicking on his site to send traffic there….#guilty. Any suggestions? I already set up a google webmasters account and submitted a site map so google can crawl the site. Alright I’ll let that one slide….its kinda crazy…..moving along.
#6 When I watch a show…..I have to watch it till the very end
I wish this wasn’t the case…..I will watch it to the very bitter end. Hello One Tree Hill, Grey’s Anatomy, and Cougar Town. The one I finally had to give the boot to….Vampire Diaries I just couldn’t do it anymore Elena was just the worst.
#7 I really wish I could sing
I am telling you I am probably the worst singer you’ve ever heard but that doesn’t stop me from trying! My solution just crank up that music till you don’t hear yourself anymore and now you are sounding fantastic! Car singing is my jam along with car dancing….I have a long commute. Sometimes I will make up full routines currently I’m working on one to that Fancy song. It involves lots of hand motions to “the crowd” while my other hand is singing with the mic steering.
#8 The Toe next to my big toe is like way longer….
I call it a Genius toe….at least that is what I tell myself to feel better. Mark has one as well. If we have kids they should be like extra smart. The last time I got a pedicure the girl called it a “Bossy Toe”. I just about fell out of my chair laughing. Done. Boom. Coining that one.
#9 I am obsessed with music and think you should be too.
You know that scene in Mean Girls?
That’s how I feel about songs. I also get straight up possessive and angry when the radio starts overplaying “my song” because they are going to ruin it. I also like to label songs to their fitness genres…”oh great climbing song”….”that one would be perfect for thigh work”.
#10 I talk more to my bloggers friends on a daily basis than my IRL friends
Yeah I had to check what it meant the first time to (in real life). Pretty much how I feel like when I check my inbox and see all the lovely comments from y’all that I get to catch up on!
I now refer to y’all in common day speech. “Totally B was telling me about that setting primer I need to add it to my Sephora list”….”Kristen sent me the cutest Target dress selfie that other day“. Mark likes to say “ohhh is that your blogger friends” (with air quotes). I’m like “you’re darn right and we are meeting them when we head to Boston and Chicago this Summer so get ready” ;-)
Alright so what do you think?! Am I different, weird or straight up crazy pants? Do you do any of these things? What are your “different” traits? Also wanted to give a shout out to all the sweet comments and support from yesterday it was truly humbling! I would absolutely love all of you if you had a second to check those sweet blogger gals making an appearance in perfectly symmetrical height and width buttons on my right side of the blog (not OCD weird just different ;-) You won’t regret it they are all so funny and bring so much to the table! Thanks so much!!
Don’t forget about the Friday Favorites tomorrow! xoxoxo
