If you know blogging, you know the blog, A Piece of Toast. Not only is it one of my favorites to read but the girls behind it (sisters Molly + Sally) happen to be my good friends. When they tagged me in their "5 things you didn't know" post, I was nervous and excited!
I love this blog to be an open book and I want you all to feel that you really know me but somethings are better left unsaid. I mean, do you all really need to know that I was pretty much mute until I was six? Probably not, but I figured I would give it a shot. After all the worst that could happen is A) you think I am a weird freak or B) you feel more connected with me. Fingers crossed it is B! Here goes...
ONE: I am a self-proclaimed chocoholic! I even have a Pinterest board in its' honor. I seriously crave it so much that I went to a doctor to make sure it was normal. Come to find out, it isn't! I was deficient in Chromium. Who knew!
TWO: I have a very active imagination and I think it is important to never lose it. Whether it is through vivid dreams, trying accents, or acting I am constantly using it. I believe the best way to stay young is to never lose what makes you, you. Sometimes that means using your imagination in a playful, goofy, way or using it to build your dreams. To me the most boring people are the ones who can not use their imagination and laugh at themselves which is why I love the quote below so much.
THREE: I have Juvenile rheumatoid Arthritis. I was diagnosed at the age of six and have been battling it since. At times it is very limiting but for the most part I am A okay! I usually don't tell anyone about it but, hey, we are like family now! I would love to somehow get involved with the foundation one day but in the mean time I will share it here.
FIVE: I hate showering. Not that I don't do it daily or that I don't love the feeling of being clean but I hate the process and then standing there wet and cold. Once your shower is complete you have to open the door to a freezing cold room, blow dry your hair (and mine takes FOREVER), put body lotion on, face lotion, hand lotion, lip moisturizer, and cuticle oil. I mean, it is all quite daunting if you ask me.
There are my five things! I must admit this was a little harder than I thought but a lot of fun in the end. I hope you all enjoy!
