Really, Really Me

I'm not one of those  "Real Housewives of..." anything!  This is MY reality - life as I know it. I'm a Christian, a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, an avid reader, crocheter,  and blogger.

Ten Really Real Things You Should Know About Me:

1.  I've been married to The Man of the House for about 20 years.  We have two offspring - the Princess and The Little Man.  Neither one is so little anymore.

2.  I became a grandma this year.  It is better than you can imagine.

3.  I love peanut butter.  But I can't eat it because every time I do my face blows up like a big red tomato.

4.  I get all jittery when I see questions about my favorite book.  I love books.  I read all the time.  Please don't ask me to pick just a few favorites.  I don't think I can.

5.  I was a breastfeeding counselor and lactation educator with the county department of health for 13 years. 

6.  I am still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up.

7.  I love clipping coupons.  I get a rush every time I save money on something.  It's another one of my addictions.

8.  My towels must be folded a certain way.  So they fit in the cabinet a certain way.  This is why no one offers to help me fold the towels.

9.  I'm a list maker.  I make lists of everything.  Shopping lists, To Do lists (for myself and others), lists of books I've read and ones I want to read, lists of crochet projects I like, lists of how much money I have saved so far this year with coupons and savings cards, lists of Bible verses I like and ones I've memorized.  I like lists.  Lists keep me organized.

10.  I think I'm funny.  I make myself laugh all the time.  Sometimes I think I'm the only one.

  2. Oh, Beckey, this is really awesome to know. And I, like you, am a Christian, about 31 years now. :)

    I love peanut butter, too.

    I am also still trying to figure out what I want to be, when I grow up. My grandsons may know better soon. lol!

    And I, too, can make ME laugh better than anyone.

    So very glad to know you, Amiga! :)

  4. Your liking peanut butter but being allergic to it is sort of sad. Have you always been allergic to it? Cool that you were a breastfeeding counselor. I never even knew there was such a thing till my sister had her baby and told me all the things she had to learn about breastfeeding! My towels can be folded any old way but they must be located in the proper places!

    1. Last summer, my face kept breaking out into a horrifying rash and puffing up. The doctor insisted it was poison ivy - I knew it was not. So, after a couple of BIG episodes and a few small ones I realized it happened anytime I ate peanut butter or anything peanut related. It was a sad, sad day for this peanutbutter lover!

  5. Completely agree on #2. The peanut butter thing is really sad. I had a dietitian tell me that I should avoid it after I had my thyroid removed. I ignored her. Then my GI doc said to not eat it. I ignored it. I really would have to puff up, turn red, and probably have something else happen.

  6. Towels fold which way? I'm a tri-folder.

    1. HA! It depends on which bathroom cabinet they go into! Some needs thirds to fit right, some needs halves.

  10. Hi...found you on Bloggy Moms. I agree. Towels MUST be folded a certain way. I'm with you. I too adore lists. I love that you were a breastfeeding counselor and lactation educator. The headbands on your Etsy shop are lovely!

  12. I'm the same way about towels. I worked in the laundry at a hotel, and now I can only fold them the way I did there. So they sit in the closet right. I really try not to twitch or refold them when someone else pitches in, because I don't want to give them a complex.

    1. That's probably a good plan. No one will help me anymore because I'm so picky. LOL

  13. I like number 3 because I really LOVE peanut butter. I could eat just peanut butter for breakfast and be OKAY with that ! I also love clipping coupons ! :) So we may actually be somewhat alike.

  14. Okay, let's see. I TOTALLY agree with being a Grandma (Nannie)...it rocks!!! I adore peanut butter, too, and it would probably be a blessing if I would develop an allergy...I eat too much of it and it's so high in calories. And....my towels have to be folded a certain way, too!! ;-)
