Ten Things

Hey friends! We decided it was time to drop a new outfit posts and some facts on you about each of us individually. Grab a hot cup of coffee or hot cocoa, if that's your jam, and learn some silly tid-bits about our lives. 

10 Things About Me 

1.  I decided to pursue a career in the law field pretty much solely on my love for Legally Blonde.  If nothing else, I hope I brighten up the perceived stuffiness that surrounds law.

2.  I was born with a mild case of clubfoot affecting only one of my feet.  I wore corrective shoes for the first couple years of my life, even when I slept, to correct this birth defect.  Treatment was 100% effective and I've not suffered any long term effects.  

3.  I have 3 siblings, 1 older brother, 1 younger sister and 1 younger brother but the younger brother wasn't born until I was 15 so I very much consider myself a middle child.  I can also attest to the fact that middle child syndrome is legit.

4.  I'm in the last year of my third term serving as a notary public.  I've been a notary for 1/3rd of my life.

5.  It's no secret that I'm a crazy cat lady. I have 5 (Frank, Stewie, Milo, Hooch & Lily) and I ridiculously enjoy the company of all of them so much.

6.  At the age of 22, I purchased my first home with my husband. Every day I doubt the naiveté of that decision but having your own space that you can completely control probably can't compare.

7.  Much to parental displeasure, my husband and I eloped. A wedding is such a public event and made me feel nothing but anxiety and discomfort.  When we decided on a plan on Tuesday and were married that Friday in a court house ceremony.

8.  I've always been oddly fascinated by cults and extreme religious teachings.  My biggest obsession is the quiverful movement; leaving the number of children you have up to god and then raising those arrows in Jesus' image to inevitably shoot  into the world to fight their culture wars.  There are several real life families I follow from afar with rapt attention.

9.  I have the worst taste in music and I do not care. If its a pop song, preferably a one hit wonder, I'm probably into it.  B. Spears will forever be my idol.

10.  I was obsessed with Little House on the Prairie growing up. I read the Laura years, the Rose years, the Caroline years, the Charlotte years and the Martha years.  During a family vacation out west, I was able to talk my parents into stopping at the museum/road side attraction in Mansfield, MO.  It was the highlight of that vacation even though my siblings complained the entire time.

10 Things About Me 

1. I'm the oldest of 4 siblings, but I also have 3 step siblings. I'm not close with my step siblings, but my youngest sister is my best friend. We are 9 years a part. 

2. I got my cat Luna on my 27th birthday from a coworker who found her on the street. I named her after Luna Lovegood (obviously) and she helped me get through my divorce. 

3. I got married when I was 22 and had the girls when I was 23. I never expected to have twins, but they are literally my favorite people. I got divorced at 26 and feel like it's when I finally figured out who I was. My 20's were so crazy, I'm loving my 30's so far. 

4. I love to write and keep notes in my phone of book ideas. 

5. I love astrology and read my horoscope every morning. I totally believe your sign/birthday inform aspects of your personality. 

6. My mom went into labor with me while watching Ghostbusters and I feel like that has inspired my life long love of horror movies. That and my grandpa letting me watch Nightmare on Elm Street when I was 5. 

7. I have loved to read my whole life and used to get grounded from reading instead of seeing friends or going places.

8. I am obsessed with The Bachelor family of products and could talk about it all day. We will literally be fast friends if you also dig The Bachelor. 

9. My favorite movie is Jurassic Park and my first crush was on Jeff Goldbulm because of that movie. 

10. I can be a really bad listener and over the past few years have a made a conscious effort to listen better and ask more questions instead of immediately giving my opinion or telling my own story. I'm not always great at it, but I do think I'm getting better and it makes me a better friend.
