Hello all! Over the past few days I have seen a lot of the people I follow on Instagram, post and tag each other in the five fact challenge. It’s simple, one person shares five facts about them and then tags their friends to do the same. I thought this would be a great way for y’all to get to know me more and vice versa!
I tried to pull some random and not well known facts about me which was fun. Let’s check them out:
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang scares me to my core
Yep- that Dick Van Dyke classic sends shivers down my spine and raises my hairs on end. Have you seen the movie: The child snatcher?! Not to mention the King is trying to kill his Queen; people dress as dolls… the whole thing is creepy and I want no part of it.
I’ve never been outside of the U.S.A
It’s not that I’m afraid, or don’t have the want, it’s just that an opportunity has never presented itself. I’d love to go to Italy, Greece, or even the Bahamas would be lovely!
I love collecting insulators
These hefty glass insulators used to be found on top of electrical and telephone poles. I have some blue ones which are my absolute favorite! The color is extraordinary! I am always looking to add to my collection: purple, amber, clear, you name it! I also recently found that you can turn them into a light fixture, which I would love to do in my kitchen one day. For now, they sit out and have battery operated tea lights illuminating from inside of them.
I am a “Popahaolic!”
Those closest to me know this: I am an avid watcher of Dr. Pimple Popper & I even got my own set of tools for Christmas. Popping pimples is gross but is also so satisfying for me. Is that odd? I can’t be the only one!
I don’t like candy
WOAH NOW! Surprised? Let me clarify… I have a huge sweet tooth. In fact, I’m fairly certain all of my teeth are of the sweet variety. However, while my Dad and boyfriend would love nothing more than to sit down to a bag of candy, gummy bears, or box of nerds, I’d rather pass. Give me a doughnut, cake, brownies, ice cream, a crepe, anything I can really sink my sweet teeth into!
What about you?
I’d love to read some comments about you all! What are some little know tid-bits about you? I’m also going to encourage my friends over at Must Love Salamanders & Steph’s Scribe to join in and create a similar post! We’re all a big blogging family, let’s spread some fun & get to know one another better.
Thanks for stopping by!
