5 Things You Didn’t Know About Me


I love learning new things about people. Especially when it comes to a lot of the online pals who I don’t have the luxury of making small talk with on a daily (in person) basis. So that’s why I loved reading Eli’s 5 Things You Didn’t Know About Me and decided to post my own little list. Nothing too crazy, but personal all the same. Feel free to play along and link up in the comments so I can learn some new things about you.

ONE / I talk to my mom every day – My favorite feature about my new car is the bluetooth functionality which allows me to make & take calls through the speakers. As a result, I’ve taken to calling my mom every morning on my way to work. It’s our own little phone date at 9:15am every day. I love my mom!

TWO / I sing country karaoke – If you get enough drinks in me to be brave enough to get up on the bar karaoke stage, I will always sing either one of two songs: Leave The Pieces by The Wreckers or Hell on Heels by Pistol Annies. I’ve been told I’m not half-bad but that could be because my audience is intoxicated as well. Sidenote: when I was in Nashville this summer, the karaoke singers there were like freaking professionals. No wonder so much talent comes from that city.

THREE / I regularly stay up past midnight – Okay, this one I’m really trying to change. Whether it be due to staying up late working on a freelance project or pushing play on too many episodes of Gilmore Girls, I’m constantly burning that midnight oil. That’s not really conducive to waking up early to run + make breakfast so Glenn and I are trying to get on a better sleep schedule. The goal is to be in bed by 11pm (baby steps).

FOUR / I’ve kissed a girl – It wasn’t all Katy Perry-esque or anything but I made out with one of my best girl friends at a party. Oh, college. There were keg stands and everything.

FIVE / I have really big hands – People are always so surprised when I give such a firm handshake and its because my hands are (what I consider to be) freakishly big for a girl. I can literally palm a basketball. I don’t plan on joining the WNBA anytime soon but I suppose it did come in handy (ha!) when I played the piano when I was younger.

    I have really big hands but I am an inch shy of being six feet tall so I think I get a free pass. More love to us big handed girls!

  2. I can totally relate to #4…and I haven’t told many people that! Good ol’ college days ;)

    Random that we did these on the same day! Loved reading yours Liz!

  3. Katie says:

    I have this inability to go to bed before midnight. I just can’t do it.

    lol I am doing random facts posts currently except I am working on a hundred since I was inspired by someone else who did 100.

      It’s such a hard habit to break but I need to do it! Because I love feeling refreshed the next day when I get a good night’s sleep + get up early and run/eat a good breakfast.

  4. Vanessa says:

    I love reading slightly more personal things about my fellow bloggers! i find it endearing and relate-able. There is so much we can censor and edit with our online personas. I love finding out quirky details that makes everyone real!

  5. Eli says:

    LOVE this post! :)

    I’ve been calling my mami every day after work for the last two years, now she worries when I don’t! Feel lucky you have yours so close!

  6. […] I stumbled upon this post, by a fellow designer/blogger gal whose blog I enjoy, and I thought I’d join in on the fun. […]

  7. Shantel says:

    I have freakishly large hands too! Glad to hear I’m not the only one!

  8. Noor says:

    I am just like you with the bed thing. Anytime I sleep before 12 I wake up in the middle of the night and can not go back to sleep.

  9. Jennifer says:

    Love the honesty on this list, Liz. I was so inspired that I posted my own list today!


  10. Angela says:

    Love your list! I really want to see your hands now.
