- Wedding: May 2011 - Bartram's Garden
I totally forgot to post this until now. If you’re new to the boards or haven’t seen this post before, I like to get everyone to post 10 non-wedding related things about ourselves, so that we can remember that we’re not just brides; we’re people.
Here are mine:
- I like fresh raspberries, but artificial raspberry-flavored ANYTHING makes me want to gag. I also dislike mustard, pickles, and cooked mushrooms, but will eat almost anything else.
- I love any movie or book that takes place in a mental hospital or prison
- I have seen the movie “Heathers” so many times that at one point in high school, I could recite the entire movie without it being on.
- I read incredibly fast. If I’ve got the time, I can read a book in a day or less. A few years ago, during a 4-day trip to Mexico, I read six full-length novels.
- I am usually pretty frugal but have no problem splurging on a nice, soft leather bag.
- There is something about being on an airplane that just lulls me to sleep. Whenever I fly (which is quite often), I am usually asleep before the safety speech.
- I rarely if ever turn my cell phone ringer on, which means I never, ever hear my phone and never pick it up, unless I am specifically expecting a call. I guess I just like to be unreachable sometimes.
- I hate being hot. I would much rather be really cold and put on three sweaters and drink cup after cup of tea than be hot.
- I am very skeptical by nature and tend not to believe in things like ghosts, psychics, past lives, etc.
- I sprained my ankle very badly about two years ago and it’s never been the same. It still acts up all the time, and I can’t work out as often as I’d like. It sucks.

Ooh I love these. I thought of one the other day and now I’ve totally forgotten, darn it!
- I’d rather be at home than anywhere else. I sort of hate going out, especially overnight. I love it here.
- I would eat melon and proscuitto for every meal if I could.
- I watch Golden Girls every day from 2-3 if I’m home (I work from home). I totally love that show.
- I’ve never seen The Godfather.
- I love books set in ancient China. I have no idea why but I devour them.
- I hate the winter. I don’t watch hockey (never even been to a game). I may be the worst Canadian ever, LOL! I’m very proud to be Canadian, but I think I’m not very good at it!
- I’m obsessed with The Game of Life on my iPhone. I play it every night before bed. It’s awful.
- I have songs for each of my cats. Yes, I am a crazy cat lady. It’s proven.
- My sister and I look so different (pretty much complete opposites) most people don’t believe we’re related.
- I absolutely hate olives. Yucky.

I’ll play along, slow day at work! 🙂
- I love, love, love movies and about dancing – any kind of dancing. Not sure why, I danced for a few years when I was younger, but haven’t done any formal dancing in years.
- I played field hockey for 6 years – I miss it!
- I have lived in NY (central – think Fingerlakes) my entire life, and hope to experience a new state soon.
- I love both sunshine and rain equally. Nothing is better than waking up to sun, however I love my black and white rain boots, and splashing in puddles.
- Rubber ducks make me smile.
- I can’t seem to keep plants alive, even one’s that don’t need to be watered.
- I’m allergic to almost all kinds of fish, with the exception of tuna.
- I am highly organized, but only at work. I can never keep my apartment picked up.
- I’m a twin, and twin brother has been my best friend (literately!) my entire life!
- I don’t have a favorite color. I really do love pretty much all colors out there!

1. if its not obvious by my username, i have an obsession with college football. like, diehard. i can probably name you the top 5 (or 10..) teams every week of the season.
2.i hate raw tomatos. like, HATE them. i don’t even want to cut or touch them. it’s something about the texture. i love pizza sauce though.
3. i’m deathly allergic to tree nuts. i was hospitalized overnight once because i accidentally ate a walnut cookie. i carry an epipen, and on our 7th date, i showed my fiance how to use it (i find it romantic that he would jab me in the leg with the pen to save my life).
4. i have natural blonde hair, but people like to argue with me and tell me i dye it.
5. i have two guinea pigs and refer to them as ‘my kids’
6. i hoard bottles of wine because i’m afraid i’m going to run out. there are currently 18 bottles in our apartment, unopened.

8. my life goal is to travel to 20 countries before i die. i’ve made it to 12 so far.
9. i broke my ankle the first day of grad school because i was walking backwards, saying goodbye to someone, and talking on the phone all at the same time–i didn’t know there was a curb there 🙂
10. i have a weird obsession with checking the mail. like, i want to check it as soon as it arrives. i get giddy when i get packages–i’m weird.
