HAPPY TUESDAY Y’ALL! IT’S BEEN A FEW WEEKS SINCE I’VE POSTED DUE TO MY SITE BEING HACKED, BUT WE’RE BACK! MY 25TH BIRTHDAY WAS A COUPLE WEEKS AGO, SO I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE FUN TO SHARE “25 THINGS YOU PROBABLY DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT ME” FOR TODAY’S BLOG POST. THERE ARE A LOT OF NEW FACES AROUND HERE, AND I COULDN’T BE MORE THANKFUL AND EXCITED FOR YOU TO JOIN ME! I HOPE THIS HELPS GIVE YOU THE CHANCE TO GET TO KNOW A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT ME!

 

1.  I WAS BORN AND RAISED IN GREENVILLE, SOUTH CAROLINA.

2.  I’M THE OLDEST OF TWO, AND MY SISTER IS MY BEST FRIEND. WE ARE 22 MONTHS APART.

3.  MY FAVORITE COLOR IS BLACK!

4.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE MY SWEETS, CANDY BEING NUMBER ONE! GIVE ME ALL THE GUMMY BEARS, PEANUT M&MS, SOUR PATCH KIDS, STARBURST… SHOULD I CONTINUE?!

5.  I’VE ALWAYS WANTED TO BE A MOM AND I CAN’T WAIT TO HAVE MANY LITTLE MUNCHKINS RUNNING AROUND!

6.  I’VE NEVER MET ANOTHER ALIX THAT SPELLS THEIR NAME WITH AN I.

7.  I AM NOT A FULL-TIME BLOGGER. BY DAY I WORK IN COMMERCIAL INSURANCE.

8.  I’M SCARED TO DEATH OF BIRDS, ANY AND ALL OF THEM.

9.  MY HUSBAND AND I ARE HIGH SCHOOL SWEETHEARTS CIRCA 2007.

10.  WE HAVE NO PETS RIGHT NOW, BUTTTTT IF I HAD IT MY WAY, I’D SAY THERE IS A FRENCHIE PUPPY IN THE NEAR FUTURE! (HINT, HINT)

11.  I WAS A SWIMMER GROWING UP, AND MY BEST STROKE WAS BUTTERFLY.

12.  IF I COULD GET AWAY WITH IT, I WOULD PROBABLY NEVER WEAR PANTS.

13.  I LOVE GREETING CARDS. BIRTHDAY, THANK YOU, VALENTINES, ANNIVERSARY, YOU NAME IT! WE HAVE ALSO KEPT ALMOST EVERY CARD WE’VE GIVEN TO EACH OTHER IN THE 10 YEARS WE’VE BEEN TOGETHER. I ALSO KEPT EVERY WEDDING CARD WE RECEIVED THROUGHOUT OUR ENGAGEMENT UP UNTIL THE BIG DAY! I PROMISE I’M NOT A HOARDER!!

14.  I HAVE 20/20 VISION, BUT WHEN I WAS YOUNGER I PURPOSELY FAILED MY EYE TEST JUST SO I COULD GET GLASSES. GUESS I WASN’T AS SMART AS I THOUGHT. TURNS OUT, I FAILED BOTH THE NEAR-SIDED AND FAR-SIDED TESTS, SO THEY GAVE ME BIFOCALS. WHOOPS!

15.  MOST PEOPLE SAY I LOOK LIKE MY DAD.

16.  I SLEEP WITH THE SAME PILLOW I HAVE HAD SINCE I WAS LITTLE. TECHNICALLY I HAVE TWO, BUT THE HUBS HAS KIND OF STOLEN ONE.

17.  I LOVE TO DANCE, AND MY HUSBAND AND FRIENDS TEND TO LET ME KNOW JUST HOW GOOD I AM AT IT… ;)

18.  I HAD BRACES TWICE. ONCE FOR AN OVERBITE AND ONCE BECAUSE, WELP, MY TEETH WERE CROOKED.

19.  MY PARENTS HAD ME START SCHOOL EARLY, SO I WAS ALWAYS THE YOUNGEST IN MY GRADE.

20. YOU CAN NEVER GO WRONG WITH A GLASS OF CHAMPAGNE OR A GOOD MARGARITA IN HAND.

21.  I LOVE COLLEGE FOOTBALL (CLEMSON TIGERS ESPECIALLY!) AND PRO GOLF. IN PERSON OR ON TV, I LOVE THEM BOTH!

22.  COUNTRY MUSIC IS ALWAYS AT THE TOP OF MY PLAYLIST, BUT MY PLAYLISTS CONSIST OF ALL KINDS OF MUSIC GENRES.

23.  IN COLLEGE, MY BEST FRIENDS AND I DEVELOPED A LOVE FOR TACO BELL, AND WE STILL HAVEN’T LET THAT LOVE GO. SAY WHAT YOU WANT ABOUT IT, BUT IT’S EASILY MY FAV FAST FOOD RESTAURANT.

24.  MY HUSBAND IS MY NUMBER ONE SUPPORTER, AND WITH THAT COMES A LOT OF ADVICE. SOMETHING HE SAYS THAT HAS ALWAYS STUCK WITH ME IS -- “YOU EITHER MAKE IT HAPPEN OR YOU MAKE EXCUSES.”

25.  I LOVE LIFE! WHETHER IT’S A MONDAY OR FRIDAY, RAINY OR SUNNY, THE MOST PERFECT DAY, OR POSSIBLY THE WORST DAY. LIFE IS PRECIOUS, AND YOURS IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT!           

AND THERE YOU HAVE IT! I HOPE EVERYONE HAS A GREAT WEEK!
