I used to think I was boring: and other confessions/facts

(Anna Ruth took this pic!)
Isn't that a funny/awful title? It's true though.  Once upon a time I thought I was boring and couldn't, for the life of me, figure out why friends would want to hang out with me. I remember one particular friend wanted me to hang out with she and her daughter...We actually hung out quite often.  At first, I kept wondering why on earth she would want to hang out.  Self-concious anyone? 

I soon got over myself and realized I am NOT boring at all. Getting over a fear of wondering how interesting I am to other people and becoming confident in myself has resulted in lots of friendly acquaintances and a handful of best friends. Boring/self-concious thoughts? Kick 'em to the curb. 

Other confessions/facts about me:
1.) I like to eat dry cheerios. 

2.) As much as I love my country life, I love big cities and sometimes still wonder what it would be like to live in one.

3.) On the other hand-my big dreams for the future include a chippy red barn, airstream trailer, and a big old rambling farm house.

4.) My favorite t.v. shows are: Parenthood, The Biggest Loser, The Voice, and Shark Tank

5.) I love magazines. Some favorites are: O Magazine, Mary Janes Farm, Artful Blogging, and Mingle (both published by Stampington)

6.) I can build a fire in the stove by myself

7.) I am as happy with myself at a weight 10 or 12 pounds heavier than I am now. I have learned the art of being pleased with my overall health, rather than going off a number on the scale.

8.) I've traveled to Italy and dream of going back. 

9.) I love to daydream and drink coffee. 

10.) I don't like talking on the phone. (unless you're someone I talk to frequently on the phone and then I like talking)

11.) My best friends all have something in common-they're all passionate about a hobby or interest.  I like people who are about something......I have a hard time connecting with people if I'm not sure what their interests/dreams/passions are.  What do people do when their kids nap/go to bed? How do they like to spend their time? What excites them?   I connect best with people who can answer all those questions, beyond just sleep and t.v. 

12.) I worry about being a good mom and sometimes wonder if I'm doing things right. I have frustrated/want a break days just like everyone else. Overall though-I love being a mama. It's the hardest job I've ever done in my life. But-the most rewarding.

13.) Lastly-I LOVE things with a theme or catchy name. Examples-Rosy Retreat, Sunshine by Sara, Rate the Rugs (an e-mail from my sis recently! ) I don't just love the names though-I love planning/seeing my mind's eye picture come to life.

  1. Out of all of those, I'm most impressed that you can build a fire by yourself, haha! Loved this post :)

    1. Carrie Beth-I should clarify really (what if my dear husband reads this and thinks I'm fooling you all! LOL) I can build a fire WITH starter sticks. There, that's better. :) I think that still counts though....

  2. I am a bit self-conscious about myself and I need to totally get over that! I also dream about living in a bigger city...some day! I am totally a daydreamer! Thanks for sharing some things about yourself! I think you sound like a really great person!

    1. It's hard not to be self-conscious isn't it? Praying you can feel comfortable in your own skin! It's roomier that way, I've found. :) And...fellow daydreamers unite! I love a good sunny day for a day dream.
