My New Happy: Ten Things You Didn't Know About Me

Ten Things You Didn't Know About Me


Happy Monday!  Today The Blended Blog is sharing "ten things you didn't know about me".  I feel like you guys already know everything, but I thought hard and came up with some random stuff!

1/ I've colored my hair for so long, I'm not at all sure what my natural color is anymore.  Probably lightish brown with plenty of gray thrown in.

2/ Since I paid my own way through college, I had lots of jobs, and some of them were pretty strange.  One year I audio recorded textbooks for students that were blind.  It was really monotonous to read about chemistry for hours, but the pay was great.

3/ I have never had a hangover.  It only takes one drink to get me tipsy, so I've never managed to over indulge.  Such a cheap date.

4/ I hate seafood of any kind.  Which is a waste, living in Seattle. I'm happy to help catch it, but don't ask me to eat it.


5/ I got straight A's my entire school career, even through college.  Which I kind of regret.  While everyone else was out having fun, I was studying.  And seriously, does anybody care now?  Nope.

6/ George and I dated for eight years before we got engaged, and when he finally proposed, I thought he was breaking up with me instead. See, straight A's doesn't mean you have any common sense.

7/ Although I'm a West Coast girl, I lived in North Carolina for five years during elementary school.  Which makes me a little southern.  Can I start saying y'all?

8/ The people in my family, on both sides, live forever.  Grandpa Ed just celebrated his 100th birthday, and my boys have had three great-grandparents that they've grown up knowing.  


9/ Since moving to Washington, I've experienced two big earthquakes, the eruption of Mount St. Helens, and several hurricane strength storms.  And they say nothing exciting ever happens around here!

10/ I grew five inches in 6th grade to my current height of 5'9".  I had such bad growing pains that year I could barely sleep at night, and I was taller than every single person in my class, even the boys.

That was fun!  Can't wait to read about everyone, so I hope you'll link up with us on The Blended Blog, or share on social media with the #tbbasks.

  4. I LOVED your '10 things'! Especially 'straight A's doesn't mean you have any common sense' (I put something very similar one mine :)). Love the crab pic - your husband is so gung ho and you are just ever so slightly edging away haha. I can relate to the hair thing - mine is ditry blonde and I've half highlighted bits of it since I was 16 - the thought of not doing it is incomprehensible. That is CRAZY how much you grew - people who say there is 'no such thing as growing pains' are clueless don't you think? My son gets them all the time (even though he's small for his age;) Great post - Joanne xx

    1. Hi Joanne! Yes, growing pains are definitely a thing and they're quite painful. Love that we both wrote about our lack of common sense!

  5. Ooooh we have some stuff in common Lana! I have NEVER had a hangover either and never intend to! I've been coloring my hair forever too, and I used to read for a blind student in college! My friend and I did it but it was all psychology and that was our major! This was fun to learn so much about you - all A's, that is INCREDIBLE!!!!

  7. Can I just say I'm jealous you've never had a hangover! I'm can't drink at all basically, I can have one drink and feel absolutely terrible, so I just decided it wasn't for me. I also don't like seafood at all, blah!! This was a fun post!

  9. Love this! I wish I could say I’ve never had a hangover. You aren’t missing out!

OMG I thought that was your natural color, the first fact already blew me away. I only eat seafood for protein, wow this is so interesting. Ahh you thought he was breaking up with you when he was proposed… that’s hilarious.

  11. Those were interesting facts and I agree with the studying thing, no one asks you what grades you got in college! :) I do hope you live forever! :)

  12. I live in the Puyallup/ Tacoma area! Not too far away from Seattle. I lived in Florida for 10 years where I met my hubby! You could say I'm a bit southern too!

  13. What a relief that he was proposing and not issuing a breakup!
    We have things in common, of course. I've never had a hangover. Never got that far!
    Also, my big growth spurt was all at once, but it was in 8th grade. Now I'm 5'6" but I used to be the tiniest kid in school.
