If You Really Knew Me...

You'd know that even though I am not really a girly girl I have a nail polish collection that rivals that of most salons. I love nail polish and am always buying new colors, but since I was sixteen my favorite color has been OPI's "I'm Not Really a Waitress".

You'd know that Top Gun is my favorite movie and has been since I was fifteen.

You'd know that in addition to coffee I love hot tea. One of my favorite pre-wedding events was afternoon tea at The Peabody with my closest family and friends.

You'd know that my momma is my best friend. I can call her with anything, happy news, sad news or just to chat. I don't know what I would do without her. I know a lot of people aren't as lucky as I am to have that kind of relationship with their mom so I treasure it. I hope Evie and I have that kind of relationship one day.

You'd know that I am a hover parent, and I see absolutely nothing wrong with that. I know I'll have to let go one day, but for now call me helicopter mom!

You'd know that I have a very tender heart. I try really hard to avoid any stories about child or animal abuse. They make me feel so helpless against the cruelty in this world. I was once told by a friend who believes herself to be a psychic medium that I am an empath. That I have the ability to feel what other people and animals are feeling and that sometimes I can't help but to feel what they feel. I'm not sure that I believe that, but I did read an article on mental health issues that stated that people who suffer from anxiety tend to be extremely empathetic. I tend to believe the magazine.

You'd know that I have an Arkansas hilly billy streak that runs long and wide. Case in point I hate to wear shoes. If I am at home I am barefoot, even if we've got company. I'm just comfortable like that.

You'd know that I love to go grocery shopping and I love to bring my kid. She loves the grocery store. We pretend the cart is a racecar and we make sqealing noises when we go around corners and say vroom vroom while walking the aisles. Other shoppers think I am crazy, but we have fun.
You'd know that I am a proud alumnae member of Delta Delta Delta sorority. Some people don't get it, that's ok. I love my sisterhood and all that it stands for, right down to our initiation rituals, secret handshake and password.

You'd know that I never ever trust a blinker, and you'd know why!

You'd know that when I was a teenager and in my early twenties I really really didn't like kids. In fact, to some degree, it took becoming a mother to really get comfortable with kids.

You'd know that I think ranch dressing is one of the four major food groups.

You'd know that I almost never blow dry my hair. It's long and curly and super thick. I just don't have the time for it!

You'd know that I'm still not sure what I want to do with my work life, but that being a wife to Christopher and mother to Evie are the most important fulfilling jobs I do on a daily basis, and that getting to fulfil those rolls is a dream come true.

Thanks to Ashley for the inspiration for this post!
