The one with a little Hello Kitty and a dash of migraines

Helene in Between

I love when a fellow blogger lets you into their personal lives, even if it's just a little bit. You really feel like you're getting to know them. So, when I saw Charlene link up with Helene about a "Things you don't know about me" post, I wanted to jump in so you guys could get to know me a bit!

So, here we go... things you probably don't know about me...

+ We sponsor a child from Indonesia through Compassion.com  During the Rend concert, they spoke about Compassion during the concert so after, we checked out their table set up in the hallway of the church. I've always wanted to "Sponsor" a child, but I was very skeptical about how much really gets to the child & if they just use the same children over & over. This company is legit, y'all! Our little guy is so adorable! I wish I could scoop him up for reals! If you have ever had this on your heart, please check out this company, they are awesome!

+ I am in love with everything Japanese.  My friends say I should've been born Japanese. I love Hello Kitty like a 5 year old girl. I can eat a ton of sushi, so can my Mr. Good thing I learned how to make and roll sushi at home! I mean this list could go on & on, but I'm such a sucker for anything Japanese!

+ I have an endless amount of love.  The Mr. and I were just talking about this, I knew I always felt strongly about things, and he says I have an endless amount of love to give everyone. OK, so maybe I do. If you're close to me, you know what I'm talking about! It kinda goes back to the whole "Circle of Friends" post I wrote about here. 

+ Funny people are my favorite! I think Jennifer Lawrence, Karl Plinkerton (An Idiot Abroad show), Chris Pratt, and Sue Sylvester ( Cheer coach from Glee) need to be my real life BFFs! It may take a while for someone to get to know me, but once I open up to you, I tend to make people laugh... sometimes even when I don't realize something I said is funny!

+ I am OBSESSED with safety! I would rather drive than ride with someone just because I know I'm in control of the vehicle. And the only arguments the Mr. & I have is when I side seat drive and fuss when he's speeding or doing something wrong (in my opinion). Not that he's a horrible driver, but I drive like a Grandma, and I don't wanna die! I'm also very well equipped if a thief or intruder were to come in the house, because let's face it, Ginny MAY love them to death, but she certainly isn't a guard dog!

+ Migraines per month: sometimes 4+. Yes, the kinda migraines that knock you on your butt, it hurts to exist and you're sick all day, but then they last for days at a time? Yeah, that type of migraine visits me 4 or more times a month and it's the WORST!

+ I'm 5'8".  Which is kinda tall!

+ I'm extremely claustrophobic. Small spaces? Nope. Cool old volcano tubes? Nope. Caves? No way! Y'all, it's so bad that I make the Mr. roll over at night if we end up facing the same way because I feel like he's taking my air and I will suffocate. Yes, it's that bad. I will even go outside during a get together because I feel like the room is too small and there are too many people taking all the air out of the room. And let's face it, I'm a bit of an introvert, so a few minutes of quiet time away from folks is always a must for me.

There you have it! A few random things about me that you probably never wanted to know but ya got them anyway!

Anything else you've always wondered? Comment below!


  1. I'm so glad you did this! If we ever meet in real life, you're gonna have to drive. Just warning you now. :) I think I'm allergic to the speed limit.

  2. I love reading this!! Thanks so much for sharing!! :) It is always so fun to read different things about the ladies behind the blog! How are you doing sweet friend? You are in my daily prayers!

  3. I wouldn't say I'm obsessed with safety (although I am very focused on it), but there are little things that I obsess about it, especially at work. The paper cutter at work... I have a huge red sign on it telling people exactly how I want them to leave it. I'd come in and the blade would be up in the air or the blade would be down but not secured. It drives me crazy!
