25 facts about me -- a break from the norm

I was inspired by a blogger I discovered today to post one of these. I always enjoy reading these so hopefully you guys will enjoy my random thoughts.

1) I am an Aquarius and enjoy reading about astrology.

2) My first job was at a Mini Mart. I was under 18 so happy to make any sort of wage. It required waking up at 5 am on weekends to sort newspapers, and mopping floors. Yuck!

3) I am obsessed with Panera Bread. Specifically their salads, soups, and smoothies.

4) I used to wear black lipstick and nail polish in high school and thought it was cool.

5) The book I am about to read is "Inferno" by Dan Brown.

6) The last book I read was "Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me" by Mindy Kaling and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

7) My favorite face care brand is Bliss. I was introduced to the line from one of my favorite bloggers and I just love all of their products.

8) I hold a part-time job as a fitness instructor. By day I teach high school.

9) I love to take weekly Pilates reformer classes at a very nice
studio. It is one of the ways I "treat myself."

10) I don't "love" animals, even cats and dogs.
I don't ever care to have a pet.

11) I would love to live in Florida one day.
I do not like New Jersey, but it is home.

12) I spend well over three hours on the Internet each day but I don't always recall how I spent the time.

13) My favorite store is J. Crew and I spend way too much money there.

14) I am a big football fan and my favorite team is the New York Giants. I never thought when I was younger that I would ever like football.

15) My husband was my high school boyfriend.

16) One of my pet peeves is when a driver speeds up at an intersection to cut you off and then drives the speed limit... or slower.

17) I don't use Facebook because I don't like the effect it has had on society. I think it has limited social interaction and I'm taking my "stand" by not having a page -- even though I miss out on so many good coupons.

18) The majority of my emails each morning are store promotions. I really need to limit my preferences!

19) I am very happy with my husband and no kids.

20) I attended law school for a week but dropped out over fear of the tuition commitment.

21) I buy way too many room candles and moisturizers.

22) I really like seahorses.

23) I am frugal and rarely pay full price for anything I want.

24) I can't stand pop up ads and YouTube ads. Enough already!

25) I am a technology geek and cannot function without an Apple product.

That's my 25.

  1. Thanks for sharing! Fun and interesting!! but, you gotta rethink this animal love thing. :o)

    BTW, if you're in the market for a utility jacket, I stumbled across what appears to be a good one at Shade Clothing. even better... $20.99 I would snatch it up in a heartbeat but I just picked one up on ebay. (which looks almost exactly like the SC one)

  2. Thanks for commenting! I will say this... if I WERE to have a pet.... (Drum roll) it would be a dog, specifically a PUG. To me they are so ugly/cute and it is pretty much the only pet I would even consider. My hubby would have to plant it in my house and not give me a choice.

    Thanks for the Shade Clothing tip--- going over now to check it out! You know I love "our" striped blazer (LOL) and it was a great deal!
