As some of you may know, I celebrated my 24th birthday last Thursday. It feels crazy to say that, but also, I am always the youngest in my friend group so this was definitely a birthday I was ready for.
We snapped a few photos from my beach birthday party on Sunday afternoon.
In honor of my birthday, I thought I’d share 24 things about myself that you might not know.
1. I have two closets, which consists of my actual closet and part of the garage.
2. I’ve been dating my boyfriend for over five and a half years. And we bought a house together in January 2016! He’s my rock day in and day out, and I love building a life with him.
3. I’d rather stay in than go out.
4. I only started drinking (and really appreciating) red wine while studying abroad in Rome during college. Before that, it was sweet white wine only.
5. I don’t like scary movies, and am a sucker for rom-coms.
6. Corny poems and sayings are my jam. This is my favorite: “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass…It’s about learning to dance in the rain.”
7. Top three favorite types of foods: Mexican, Thai, Sushi.
8. I beg my BF to get me a dog everyday. Usually it’s mentioned multiple times in a day and involves Insta puppy account tags, gawking at adorable dogs on the street and hanging out with friend’s dogs every chance possible.
9. Beach > mountains any day.
10. I love to travel, and try to take one big trip every year. Next up: Thailand in November!
11. People make fun of me for how bad of a story teller I am. I get distracted, I always miss the punch line, and usually just keep rambling.
12. I am incredibly sassy, and usually am pretty quick to speak my mind.
13. I have a thing for hats. Baseball caps, beanies, floppy hats, beach hats. I don’t discriminate.
14. Spicy food is sort of an obsession of mine. Doesn’t matter the type of food, or drinks. I make a mean cucumber, jalapeno margarita.
15. I’m incredibly indecisive. Doesn’t matter if I’m picking a place to go to lunch or a place to go on vacation, I won’t be able to decide.
16. I love all dessert, and will never say no to anything sweet.
17. I overanalyze everything. I will dissect that thing you said to me three weeks ago and still be bothered by it. (I’m working on this one.)
18. When I’m nervous, I don’t stop talking. It’s a really terrible habit, especially in awkward situations.
19. Hot yoga and cycling are my two favorite workouts.
20. Mezcal is probably my favorite type of hard alcohol.
21. I was a DG in college, and loved every minute of Greek life.
22. Ultimate guilty pleasure is watching Keeping Up With the Kardashians and WAGS.
23. I pretty much exclusively listen to country music.
24. I love to host people at our house. I think it’s so fun to make food and drinks and just hang out at home.
