five things with a simple affair

What do Irish dance and eye patches have in common? One most beautiful blogger named Carly. Before we even had the pleasure of meeting in person (eeek!), I knew we would be best friends forever. You see, Carly gets me and she herself is a real character. She is funny, not as funny as me obviously, she is a mean DIYer, her blog is the bomb dot com, and she’s blonde. Everything that I could possibly want in life. Oh and the Irish dancing. I love to make music. I wanna do that. Carly, wanna teach me? It could be community service, or the opposite of that because I would surely be an annoyance.

Okay, enough about Carly and I having fun and onto her five things!

1. I will only eat tomatoes if they’re diced, preferably in the form of pico de gallo and/or guacamole. I really hate them when they’re sliced so they are never allowed on my sandwiches. No thank you. Stay away.

2. Some of you have already been lucky enough to view some snapshots of my old glory days and know about my good looks.  I have had glasses for a whopping 21 years.  Glasses for little nuggets were not on the market when I was two.  There were also eye patches involved throughout these years as well, but none of that will ever appear on the internet.

3. In high school, I took a lovely gym class called Lifetime Sports, and you’ll never guess what I learned. I am TERRIBLE at every single lifetime sport. Tennis? Bad. Golf? It ain’t pretty. Curling? Let’s just say, I am not meant to be on ice. I must start working on hand-eye coordination because I cannot Irish dance forever that’s for sure.

4. Speaking of Irish dance, I have been dancing for 17 years and yes, yes the curly hair is a wig.  I did have to curl it with sponge rollers until I was 12 {thanks Mom}.  When we danced on Good Morning America, Charlie Gibson shook my hand after the performance, and I believe our dialogue went a little something like this, Charlie: “Wow, you sure do get sweaty!” Me, frazzled: “Thank you?” Oh the memories…

5.  I am that person who will read the end of the book to find out the ending first.  Well not always first. I’ll wait until I get to that really intense part, and then that’s when I go to the back of the book.  I also once bribed my sister to tell me the ending of a movie because I wanted to know so badly.

Stop by and show Carly some love today, she graduates from college this weekend! I am so proud of you, Carly!!!
