Nice to Meet You...Again

It's been awhile since I've done an "if you really knew me" post. Six and a half months to be more exact. What better than posting embarrassing pictures of myself and divulging my quirks to y'all? Oh yeah, there is nothing better so let's get started!

If you really knew me, you'd know...

- That I have the worst road rage on the planet. I realize that this is a very extreme statement, but y'all I'm not kidding. I make sure never to flick anyone off, but you'll definitely catch me screaming & cursing at the top of my lungs if people are driving too slow or not paying attention to what's going on around them. I mentioned this in my first "if you really knew me" post, but I said I was working on it. Just wanted y'all to know that not much has changed ;)

- That my career ambitions change with the wind. I'm always coming up with new business ideas and thinking of what certification I'm going to get next. Maybe one day I'll actually put my ideas into action. For now, I'll continue studying for my certified personal training certificate and see where that takes me.

- That wine makes my world go round. Just kidding. Jesus does that. But I do love a glass (or two) of my favorite wine. Which is currently Be Flirty, a pink moscato.

- That when someone tells me to pose for a picture, 7/10 times I'm the girl that throws up the peace sign. Obnoxious, I know.

- That I consider myself an awful cook. I guess it's because I don't have much experience in the kitchen. And because I live alone so I have no reason to prepare exquisite meals on the reg. But Adam & I are planning on getting some use out of my kitchen...we have 3 dinners planned for this week...watch out y'all.

- That I love being outside. Whether I'm playing a sport, catching some rays or having a picnic, I love breathing in the fresh air.

- That I hate pants. Jeans specifically. It's so hard for me to find a pair that fits. But more importantly, I'd rather be wearing shorts, a dress or my fave...yoga pants. Elastic waist band, come to mama.

- That I am guilty of using short versions of words. Cray = crazy. Presh = precious. Adorbs = adorable. Fave = favorite. You get the idea. I think it's annoying, too. But I can't stop.

- That sometimes when I'm in public and don't feel like talking to people, I wear my sunglasses inside and pretend that I'm talking on the phone. Yes, pretend...because I actually hate talking on the phone. Texting is where it's at.

- That most people say that I come off as "crafty" but that is absolutely wrong. DIYs make me kind of crazy. I'd much rather buy something that's already beautifully made. Thank the good Lord for Etsy, right? Oh and Target, obvi.

- That I refuse to leave the house without wearing earrings. If I forget to put them on, I will go back home to get them. I should probably just leave an extra pair in my car to make my life easier. Naaaah.

- I am late 90% of the time. Okay fine, 95%. I run on Jessica time. It's pretty great. I think everyone should give it a try.

Since I know you just couldn't get enough of me throughout this post, be sure to check out the first one I did.



  1. Great post! haha Since I moved to China I am always throwing up the peace sign in pictures. I also HATE jeans, everyone i know thinks its weird but I am all about a dress, skirt or yoga pants.

  2. I love getting to know more about you :) Pink Moscato makes my world go round too, love your peace sign pics, and I hear ya on the career ambitions!

    The Other Side of Gray

  3. Sometimes I don't want to talk to anyone in public either! Leave me alone, ha! Um, wish we were neighbors. Just sayin. We would be each others work out buddy & wine buddies!

  4. I am always late. Always. It's something I've tried working on, but it never helps! Ha...maybe it's a Jessica thing??

  5. love this post! especially loving your gun-totin' pic :)
    i dont believe in being early. its for those who are over ambitious. and im totes guilty of shortening words.. see what i did there! bahaha.
    and i love pretend text people when im in public.

  6. I am definitely always late too. My friends usually tell me 10-15 minutes before when they are all arriving so then we all get there at the same time.. Whoops!

  7. YES and now I love you even more now!! You are too cute friend!!

  8. LOVE this post when you first did... way back about 6 months ago! LOL Gives us even more behind the scenes of your pretty lil' self!!

    I can totes relate to you on many levels... WINE is a fave (love the short words myself as you can see!)... I always pose the same way when taking pics and it's so hard to break! (both hands on hips and leaning to the side)... and when I can't wear my sunglasses inside I stare at the ground while I'm walking when I don't wanna talk to peeps! TRUTH!

    Hope you had a fab long weekend... and THANKS AGAIN for the birthday love! Slapped a smile on my 20-year old face LOL

    xoxo, Bev

  9. I hate jeans too! I don't understand how some people find them so comfortable...to me, they are the most uncomfortable piece of clothing ever!

  10. I also pretend to talk on the phone to get out of conversations.
    I love Target.

  11. I've become such a vino lately, I'm obsessed!!! I just want wine constantly... And I too hate jeans!

  12. I'm the same way with jeans! I finally found a pair of Michael Kors jeans at Plato's Closet for $20 that just happened to be the exact right fit. PRAISE THA LAAAWD.


I love reading your encouraging words :)
Seriously...every comment makes my day a little brighter!
SO THANK YOU for being wonderful!
