5 Things You Might Not Know About Me

1. I hate wash cloths.
 In the kitchen, in the bathroom, used for cleaning. 
BLEH. I don't like them. They smell, after they are used they are cold and disgusting. I hate them. I'd rather use a scrubby brush in the kitchen, a loofah in the bathroom and paper towels or disinfecting wipes for cleaning. I know that's not the most 'green' way to clean. But thats how I roll.

2. I love Barqs Root Beer. 
If barqs rootbeer was alcohol, I would be consider my self an alcoholic.
And on that note I don't like A&W root beer, it has a weird aftertaste. (Love their cream soda though!)

3. I have a (progressively getting worse) anxiety about things breaking/falling
And by "things" I mean: Really tall buildings, Houses with really high ceilings that are two stories, Decks that are off the ground more than 5 feet, certain elevators, ceiling fans, roller coasters, the cool but terrifying glass floor you can walk on in the aquarium in the shark tank hallway. Yeah No. Not going to happen.  I don't know where it came from, or what happened to me to have such a fear, but it's ridiculous. In certain homes I'm afraid the upstairs is going to collapse on top of me, or that we will suddenly fall through to the crawl space. Airplanes are also starting to have this effect on me now and they never have before


4.  I've never sung karaoke
I really want to go somewhere I know I wont know anyone. I want to try and just belt it out and sing like I've never sung before, and like I think I might be able to, but have never had the courage to do.

5. I eat my oreos in a very specific way.
I take an empty cup. Break the oreos in half and drop them into said cup, pour milk into cup, consume oreos with spoon. The ONLY other person I've ever met who eats them the same way is my friend Jake. It grosses everyone else out, but we love it.

So there you have it. 5 things you might not have known about me

Bonus Fact: I rarely, if ever eat the very tip ends of my french fries. I know. I'm weird.


  1. I'm totally in for a karaoke night when I come this summer! I've never done it either and it sounds so scary but fun too. A total rush. Let's find some random karaoke bar and make a night of it! Also now I want Oreos. Curse you. ;)

  2. Number one: I'm the same way. I'm trying to get some rags for the new house to save money and be more green, but we'll see how long it lasts. Number five: yes, that's yucky and soggy. I believe I've told you that before.

  3. Number one- I hate smelly rags too. I especially hate that "food" smell when they are "clean". But I have an easy way to combat that. I wash my kitchen rags in the washing machine on warm with a squirt of dawn dish soap, a good scoop of oxy clean, and vinegar- either in the wash itself or I pour it into the softener dispenser. If they are really bad, I pour about 2 cups of vinegar in the wash and add more in the softener dispenser. Voila, no more smelly wash cloths. Works on bath towels too if they get a funk. I also try to hang them to dry when I am done using them. I have a drying rack right outside my kitchen door just for kitchen towels and rags. I also have bought about 3 of those 18 packs for $5 at walmart of plain white wash cloths. I use them on the kids after meals until they get too gross, then they become cleaning rags.
