The small town Colorado girl who’s obsessed with home and everything that entails! I’m a creative, a decorator, a day dreamer, a huge fan of scones, and I’m passionate about loving where I live and making a home.
I think basically everyone has their “quirks”. Be that something strange, or specific things you must do every day. I’m certainly not immune to that, so today I thought I’d share 15 random fact about myself. It’ll also help you get to know more about the girl behind the blog a little bit better too. 🙂
It’s a win, win!

So, let’s take a peek at the odd person I am…
If I need to get house work done, a project finished, or bake something, I always watch Harry Potter. I’ve read the books and watched the movies too many times to count, so I can easily get so much done (not even kidding) when I have that in the background. I’m not exactly sure what it is, other than the fact that I love it, but the noise, the music, basically everything, puts me in my element and my productivity goes through the roof. I’ll start with the first movie and switch out the DVD’s to follow the sequence of the books. Anthony knows my style, but he’ll always be like “Oh… Harry Potter, again…?”. 😉
As a side note, if I turn on the Hallmark channel, I don’t accomplish near as much. Those Hallmark movies suck me right in… (Am I alone in that??)
I listen to music and sing every day. I mentioned my favorite music speaker in this post, but I seriously listen to music all day every day…. when Harry Potter isn’t on. Haha. When the music isn’t playing, I’m often singing songs I’ve listened to, or making up my own versions. (I didn’t just admit that, did I? Slightly embarrassing.)
As a side note, Anthony doesn’t think I’m a good singer. Haha. Car rides are not our finest moments. I listen to music, loudly, and he listens to it at a whisper. I sing along to music, he listens with a stoneface. Needless to say, if I start singing, I get “the look”. I generally sleep during car rides. 🙂
I love my shows. Thank goodness for the DVR, because I can record my favorite shows and watch them when I have a spare moment, or at night when I’m eating dinner and Anthony is out on the tractor. (I don’t even give him the opportunity to make fun of my shows. 🙂 ) Right now, these rank at the top of my favorites: When Calls The Heart, Good Witch, Cedar Cove, Once Upon A Time, etc.
I make our bed every single day. My day is not complete, and I can’t function if I know it’s not made. Not even kidding.
I still have two baby teeth… much to my dismay. I need to have some dental work done, but it’s not going to be very fun and I’ve been putting it off. I’m already preparing myself for the horror.
One of my favorite childhood memories (there are many… I had a wonderful childhood), is of my dad taking me to irrigate crops with him on the farm. My stride was much smaller than his, so I’d be jogging to keep up. When I got too tired he’d carry me over his shoulder, bouncing me as we went and calling me a “sack of potatoes”. He’s my favorite, but so is my mom and the rest of my family.
I put motivational/ encouraging quotes all over my office. Running a business is hard, and fear can overwhelm me if I let it sink it. I choose to overcome it.
I wear the same fluffy slippers as middle school. My brother bought them for me as a Christmas gift when he was in high school. They’re the most comfortable slippers I own, and even though I’ve bought other slippers, nothing compares to my fluffy angel slippers from Old Navy. Luckily, they’re still in pretty good shape, so I have several more years with them. I just throw them in the wash when they need a pick me up.
I love cereal. I could easily eat this for all of my meals and snacks. 🙂
I tell Anthony every day how handsome I think he is. He looks good in basically everything he wears, so every morning while he eats breakfast I let him know it. Haha. His reaction is always my favorite, and I think he’s catching onto me.
I absolutely love to bake and take yummy treats to everyone who’s doing farm work. They’re always happy to see me pull into the field… I like to think it’s me, but I know the goodies are part of the happiness.
I’m a positive person. I always look at things on the bright side, and my glass is always half full.
I wish I would have taken some business classes. Everything we do is by the seat of our pants, and while it’s fun to do and design everything ourselves, it would be so helpful to know if we’re doing things right.
I get overwhelmed by clutter very quickly. I can’t handle it, so when my office is a mess, I try to avoid it until it mocks me. My office is by far the worst room in the house, and as much as I try to tame the mess, implement new organizational strategies, etc., it always gets the best of me. I have a plan though, and I’m hoping I can solve my mess once and for all.
I’m a dreamer. I like to come up with new ideas. Be that houses, restaurants, businesses, etc., I always have new ideas floating around in my head. Anthony knows when I say “You Know…”, or “What If…” that something is a’ movin’ and a’ shakin’ in my ol’ brain. I guess it’s part of my charm. 🙂
I hope you enjoyed reading some new things about me. As I was typing this out, I thought of about 10 more, so maybe one day I’ll do a “Part 2”.
But I’m curious, do we have any of the same, dare I say it, “quirks”? If so, I guess we’re awesome then! 🙂
Join me as I share several easy to implement ideas that will give your home a breath of fresh air and leave you feeling excited about the changes you see by the end of the week!
