Five Things

As of late this is me:

I just realized that LuckyFABB is literally in 2 days.. our apartment is a wreck with clothes and boxes strewn everywhere.. and I just can't seem to put 1 foot in front of the other lately without taking 3 steps back. I have a feeling that the above photo will continue to represent Bill & I for the next few weeks or months...
 
So I wanted to have a bit of fun with this next post. A few weeks ago while in Hawaii I was tagged by the lovely Danielle from Lou What Wear to reveal 5 things about myself that people may or may not know. (You've probably seen these posts going around the blogsphere) I've racked my brain and even though these are mostly (or probably) super well know - it's still fun to share a little something!
 
1. I'm a closet beauty junkie
On a normal day to day basis I hardly wear makeup. I'm a firm believer that a bit of bronzer and a swipe of lipstick can go a long way. Yet I'm obsessed with makeup and beauty products. I have tons of eye shadows, blushes, lip pencils, hair care.. the list goes on and on. And I love experimenting with new looks or of-the-moment trends (like right now I'm obsessed with smokey blue eyes). I should really try to wear them on the reg!
 
2. I'm addicted to candy
This isn't really too much of a secret since it's a habit I try to break and continue to fail. In our house I'm always stockpiling bags of sour patch kids, starbursts and twizzlers. I prefer anything sour over chocolate but I'm an equal opportunist (meaning I don't mind reaching for a handful of Reese's Pieces every now and then) One thing's for sure - I can credit my sugar binges for that extra layer of skin around my stomach ;)
 
3. I'm a total bookworm
I'm that kid who read every book the summer reading list plus 5 more. When I was 6 I used to hid a flashlight and a pile of books under my sheets so I could secretly read after lights out. I love everything from biographies to teen novels to romance to thrillers. I don't think I'll ever get used to these e-readers. There's nothing better than the smell of a great book - especially when it's passed on from a good friend.
 
4. I'm obsessed with commercials
Sometimes, when I'm watching a DVR'ed show I forget to fast forward because I'm so interested in the commercials! My parents said when I was little I used to run into the room when commercials came on and run back out when the show started again. Right now my favorites are the AT&T kids commercials - so hilarious!
 
5. I'm a hoarder
It really is a good thing I married such an OCD clean freak because I might be in trouble... I'm nowhere near those crazies on that TLC show, but I definitely have an issue letting go of stuff. I hold on to movie tickets, clothing tags, business cards, receipts, the list really goes on. I'm really excited about the possibility of moving into a bigger space so that I can try and work on staying organized!
 
So there they are! Some fun facts about me.. now I'm tagging some of my fav ladies to see what they have to say!

  3. Haha, so funny about the candy thing. I'm seriously addicted to candy as well, but chocolate is my big thing. And I don't keep ANY actual candy in the house because I seriously have no concept of portion control and will eat candy until I am sick to my stomach. And then I'll wait for the sickness to pass, and then eat more candy. It's so sad. LOL.
