20 Things You Might Not Know About Me Blog Tag
To liven up your hump day (although does Wednesday even count as a hump day when Monday was a holiday?!?) I thought I would share some things you might not know about me. This post is part of the “20 Things You Might Not Know About Me” blog tag started by April from Blacksburg Belle and I was tagged by Caylee over at Gutsy Girl Wellness.
April began this blog tag experiment to build community with other bloggers in order to connect more and get to know each other better. If you’d like to participate or want more info, check out the beginning post right here.
Question 1: How tall are you?
I’m 5’8” and growing up I didn’t think I was very tall because I come from a family where my brother is 6’4”, my dad is 6’5” and my cousins are even taller. But now that I’m an adult I realize that 5’8” puts me in the tall category…and I love heels and wedges which makes me even taller!
Question 2: Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what?
I wish I had a hidden talent…I think I’m pretty open about any talent I might have.
Question 3: What’s your biggest blog-related pet peeve?
Spam comments…I love interacting with readers but only when it’s a real conversation!
Question 4: What’s your biggest non-blog related pet peeve?
I’m a really organized person so it’s sometimes difficult for me to work with super disorganized people.
Question 5: What’s your favorite song?
I am absolutely terrible at answering any question that begins with, “What’s your favorite…” I simply can’t narrow it down! Most of the time my favorite anything changes on a weekly basis or whatever mood I’m in.
Question 6: What’s your favorite Etsy shop?
Well except on this question! Because this answer is so easy. My favorite Etsy shop is my mom’s…you have to go see how super talented she is!!!
Question 7: What’s your favorite way to spend your free time when you’re alone?
If I’m alone and I have nothing to do I really enjoy having some time to read.
Question 8: What’s your favorite junk food?
Cupcakes of course!
Question 9: Do you have a pet or pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?
No pets…not since I was like 11 and we had a pet rabbit.
Question 10: What are your number one favorite nonfiction and fiction books?
See my answer to #5!
Question 11: What’s your favorite beauty product?
I’m going to interpret this question to mean the one item I couldn’t live without and that would be my face moisturizer. I’d be so sad without it!
Question 12: When were you last embarrassed? What happened?
I can’t think of the last time I was embarrassed. I taught middle school for seven years, which taught me the great skill of being able to laugh at myself. And when you can laugh at yourself it’s really difficult to be embarrassed.
Question 13: If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?
I rarely drink anything besides water so I honestly don’t know an answer to this…maybe orange juice.
Question 14: What’s your favorite movie?
Yup, see #5 for this one as well!
Question 15: What were you in high school: prom queen, nerd, cheerleader, jock, valedictorian, band geek, loner, artist, prep?
Oh wow, this is a tough question! I definitely had really good grades (4.0+ GPA) and played in the orchestra so I wasn’t the prom queen or cheerleader! But….I had a tremendous group of friends in high school so regardless of what group I was in during those four years, I have really good memories of high school!
Question 16: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
I would absolutely love to live in Europe
Question 17: PC or Mac?
I’m a Mac girl!
Question 18: Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boy/girlfriend, spouse?
I’m currently single and live with my sister…and she brought me flowers last week! So not really a romantic gesture but still super sweet!
Question 19: Favorite celebrity?
Probably Carrie Underwood
Question 20: What blogger do you secretly want be best friends with?
This is a great question but the truth is there are so many! There are so many blogs that I read and think, “I just want to go and grab coffee (well actually, I’d want to grab cupcakes!) with this blogger!” …and if anyone is a local blogger (Southern California), let me know because I’d love to meet up!
And that’s it for my fun facts! I’m going to tag a few bloggers that I’d love to know more about…
1. Kirsten from Ripped Jeans and Bifocals
2. Ana from Mommy’s Bundle
3. Lisa from Goofball Mommy
4. Lauren from Working Mom Magic
Please feel free to participate and answer these twenty questions on your own blog, or not! It won’t hurt my feelings if you don’t!
This is such a fun post!! I love getting to know bloggers through answers like these!!
I’m also 5’8″ and have a hard time answering “What’s your favorite…?” questions. Unless it’s about my favorite color!
I can’t even answer, “What’s your favorite color?”…it’s hopeless!
Awesome, Julie!! Thanks for participating! Great getting to learn more about you 🙂
Julie, this is so fun!
Thanks! I had a lot of fun putting it together!

As a fellow super-organized person, I absolutely agree that it can be extremely frustrated to work with people who aren’t!
Pam @ Hodge Podge Moments
Thanks for linking up with Bloggy Brunch! I think I learned a few new things about you today! P.S. I’m terrible at picking favorites too!
Glad I’m not the only one!
