Happy Thursday! Today’s my birthday, so I thought I’d share a little more about me so you can get to know me a little better. I’m sure I’ve shared some of these things before and some I haven’t, but I always like getting to know my favorite bloggers just a little bit better and seeing what we have in common. So, here’s 32 things about me – one for each year of my life. Have a fabulous day all!


  1. I cannot sleep without covers.
  2. I’m super clumsy. I trip over my own two feet.
  3. Some days I can’t believe how lucky I am to have such a great little family.
  4. I have really short stubby toes that my mom calls “Fred Flintstone toes.”
  5. I love to collect fun mugs.
  6. I’m handy around the house. My parents had no boys and I’m the oldest girl, so my dad was always teaching me things.
  7. I collect anything with a squirrel on it.
  8. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.
  9. I make wishes at yellow lights, when the clock hits 11:11, and when I find a random eyelash.
  10. I bruise really easily and they last forever – like months!
  11. The main reason I shower at night is so I don’t have to dry my hair in the morning. #lazy
  12. I refuse to dye my hair until I start going gray… which could be any day now.
  13. I have the ability to talk to complete strangers about anything. I get it from my mom.
  14. I have NEVER tried a Pumpkin Spice Latte.
  15. Starting to get Stitch Fix boxes has been amazing for my self-esteem. I truly thing looking better makes me feel better.
  16. Since having Abbie, I can’t watch SVU anymore – hits too close to home sometimes.
  17. I have a love/hate relationship with being a working parent.
  18. Abbie’s blonde hair STILL baffles me.
  19. I hate summer in Virginia – the humidity here is brutal.
  20. I almost never paint my nails.
  21. I’m afraid of stairs that are open underneath.
  22. If I’m not driving, I lift up my feet when I go over train tracks.
  23. I am superstitious.
  24. I don’t like pie.
  25. I could eat breakfast for every meal.
  26. I’ve never been to the west coast.
  27. I collect cookbooks. I had over 250 at last count.
  28. I don’t like carrot cake, which my mom cannot understand. Carrots just don’t belong in cake.
  29. I’ve worn glasses or contacts since I was 9 years old.
  30. I’m afraid of having a boy next because everyone has told me how much boys eat.
  31. I love acapella music and am really hoping the Sing Off comes back this year.
  32. I sent my mom flowers today – yes, for MY birthday.

Hope you all have a wonderful day! Oh, and if you have anything random you want me to answer about myself, leave it below!

  1. Happy Birthday! So many similarities! I too have to have covers, have had glasses since 5th grade, and never tried a PSL! I also stopped watching SVU a few years ago after an exceptionally scary episode. I immediately took it off my season pass!

  2. Jess … HAPPY BIRTHDAY! You are the heartbeat of our family, Abbie and I love you so much!


  3. Happy Birthday! I love these type of posts and have mine scheduled for two-weeks time, when its my birthday 🙂 How sweet are you sending your mom flowers?!

  4. Happy Birthday!!

    And I’m with you I don’t dye my hair either – you’re like me, dark hair can go VERY wrong…however I’m really hung up on ombre right now and dying the bottom for a chance and if I hate it, cut it off!

    Hope you had an awesome day!

    1. I’m actually debating putting some hidden pink highlights in my hair… but I’m too chicken to actually do it!

  5. I hope you had a Happy Birthday! Your post is so sweet. You and I have a lot of things in common – stairs with no backs scare me; I have to have covers, too; rhubarb doesn’t below in bread or anywhere!

  6. Girlfriend, you and me are the glasses/contacts since we were 9. I don’t mind it now that I wear glasses almost all of the time, but I hated it as a child. I’ve also never been to the west coast and I get the worst bruises over nothing all the time.

  7. Happy Belated Birthday! I hope this next year is your best yet! I lift my feet over train tracks too! And I LOVE that you sent your mom flowers on your birthday, I need to start doing that, I mean a mama does all the work on a birth day and should totally be acknowledged every year!

  8. Happy birthday! If you’re 32 already with no grays that’s impressive. My husband is 31 and has more than a hundred gray hairs…haha, I used to count them till there were too many. I can’t sleep without a blanket either.

  9. Ok so I’m super behind on reading, but I just had to pop in and tell you how many of these I could have checked off for myself, sleeping with covers, bruises that last for months, and making wishes at 11:11 and with eyelashes just to name a few! And happy (super) belated birthday!

I’m Jess! I’m a working mama of two sweet sisters living in the DC area. This is my space to share inspiration, real stories of working motherhood, recipes, style, and more! I can’t start my day without coffee and always try to show the real side of motherhood – the good and the challenging. I’m so glad you’re here – thanks for following along on my journey!
