    Love your facts! I have to admit, I had to look up the definition for Anglophile though. One unique fact about me is that when I was younger, I thought my parents were lying to me about my birthday. I didn’t think people were allowed to be born on “holidays”. I was born on Valentine’s Day haha 🙂

  • Miss ALK

    I collected the state quarters too and had all 50! I want to start again with the national parks and landmarks series!

    xoxo A

  • I love reading these little facts about fellow bloggers! Happy Friday babe 🙂

  • thesophiadiaries

    how come you changed your major? (curious as I’m a psychology major xD)


    • I just came to the realization that it wasn’t for me haha. I wasn’t passionate about going further.

  • Love these types of lists. I wish I had collected the state quarters! I remember when they first came out I was like wow it will take forever, and here it is 2017!

  • Caption Da Fashion

    No. 2 – Me too girl! I love their accent. LOL
    No. 17 – Girl show your fashion side on Instagram. =D
    No. 19 – OMG! Impressive. WOW!

    • Haha I’m planning more style posts!

  • Candice Schenk

    I love these kinds of lists!! So much fun to get to know each other. 7,8 and 16 I am twinners with you! BTW- you would think my twitter skills would be better since I’ve been on there so long. They are not! 🙂

    • Lol mine also! I’m terrible at updating it.

  • Riva Treasure

    Did you get all of the state quarters?? I’ve always wanted to collect them! I’ve also worn contacts that long! Fun, thanks for sharing!

    • I almost did! I’m missing like 10 haha.

  • Samantha

    Steak and potatoes is not only comfort food, but it’s also our go-to celebration meal. 🙂 And I’m with you, I love dresses, but it’s rare that I actually wear them. I loved reading these facts!

  • I don’t live in Texas but country music isn’t my favorite either (although I do like Taylor Swift, haha). I am not much of a cake person so I don’t usually have birthday cake either…I will take a big bowl of ice cream though!

    • Lol I told one of my friends that country music wasn’t my favorite and she looked at me like I just committed murder!

  • Ah, are we related?! I also taught myself how to knit, and I also wear contacts since I was 9 or 10! My eyesight is aweful; at 6, I was using those bottle bottom glasses xD

    • Haha! At first my mom thought I just wanted glasses because most of my classmates had a pair.

  • I love these kinds of posts, so fun learning more about the person behind the blog!

  • So I think we’re basically twins based on this list. But girl, you NEED cake on your birthday!!

    • Haha I always have a cookie cake?

  • OMG chicken strips are my go to meal! Seriously my favorite food!

  • WOW I went to private school for 10 years as well! Nothing like those years of uniforms and super small classes! I live in the south and can’t stand country music, it’s so weird haha; loved this post!
    xo, Gabby

  • I am wanting a chicken tender meal now haha.

  • I’m a body spray girl, too! Perfumes are too heavy for me – I love something light & sweet!

    • Yes! I’m all about only a light smell.

  • I love that your first word was big bird haha! I am the opposite, I love shorts and pants, but live in dresses haha

  • Brittany Daoud

    That’s impressive that you knew every capitol! Dang girl!

    • Haha I’m a closeted geography nerd!

  • Anna Hubbard

    Haha love those first words! And I’m also a pretty big Anglophile!

    • Lol apparently I was OBSESSED with Sesame Street!

  • Those are great first words haha. And I’m the same clothing-wise! I adore my dresses and skirts, but always seem to end up in shorts and pants!

  • Loved this post and getting to know you better! I like to sit on the floor too! I don’t know what it is about it but I find the floor to be comfortable!

    • Yeah! Everyone says it’s because I’m short haha.

  • I’ve also had my Twitter account since 2009 haha! Twitter was so different back then :p

  • mckenna bleu

    Chicken tenders may be one of my go-tos also! lol

  • I also love steak and potatoes! Great comfort foods!

    • Especially a steak with a baked potato with TONS of butter haha.

  • Fun! I also dislike country music, even though I live in Tennessee, ha! And I was voted Best Dressed in high school as well.
