One of my peeps posted an “if you really knew me” post a few weeks back… And although I already knew everything about her (and have witnessed her knowledge of “I’m on a boat” firsthand), I decided to live on the wild side and let you in on a few of my deep dark secrets.
If you really knew me…
You’d know that I’m bitter my name “erin” has zero decent nicknames. Which might also explain why we named our daughter “alexandria” that has no less than 1,450 nicknames.
You’d know that I hate capital letters. And I suck at spelling (you might already know that if you’ve been reading this blog though…).
You’d know that my husband and i met. . .IN A BAR. playing bar-golf with a group of amazing friends.
You’d know that I have a nut allergy. So I’ve never had a PB&J or a Reece’s peanut butter cup. In college I forced a friend to nibble the tops off the drumstick ice cream cones so I could eat the rest #fatkidproblems
you’d know that my family is freakishly close. I’m 99% sure my mom started a group text sharing the fact that i was pregnant and constipated that one time in mammoth. Just because the whole family NEEDED TO KNOW. I hope my brothers fiance knows what she’s getting herself into.
you’d know that i sucked at being pregnant. Legit sucked. I laughed my way through it fairly easily- which wasn’t a small feat considering the 60lb weight gain, 29 weeks of morning sickness, and insane cankaleage. to top it all off i’m pretty sure i had “pregnancy fat face” starting at like 8 weeks.
you’d know that i’m left handed. Which means that my life expectancy goes down… But the chance I’ll be president goes up (except for the tiny fact that I’m a Canadian citizen!). It also apparently makes me divergent (I’ll totally be fighting alongside tris and Tobias). I’m Canadian. Which means hockey, Maple syrup, and poutine run through my veins.
you’d know that I have a major obsession with the golden girls. I would be happy if it was the only show on TV… Forever.
(I’m also 99% leslie, channing & i ARE the golden girls. We all love to eat pie and talk about life )
You’d know that I hate coffee. But am addicted to sugar free red bull. I keep waiting to be old enough to enjoy the taste of coffee so I can ditch the favorite drink of college students.
You’d know that i’m not sad that lex is growing up. AT ALL. i’m actually the opposite and love every, single, stage. I get excited when i pack up her baby clothes and we get to move onto the next size. I love seeing her grow into the fun, sweet, and adorable little thang she’s becoming. I’m always looking forward to the next new thing. . . like when she can brush my hair and make me breakfast.
and. . . you’d know that i can totally rock bangs.
