It’s my 25th Birthday! Here are 25 Fun Facts about Me…

“What’s funnier than 24? …25!” (Hollah @ Spongebob for that one). Haaaaaaappy 25th birthday to me! Another year older, another year wiser, another year closer to being 30, flirty and thriving – ha! Huge shoutout + thankyou to all of the friends + family that made this weekend literally unforgettable in such a sweet way. It feels like I’ve crossed over some magical line where I’m a more serious 20-something now. Will I have a revelation? Will I win the Powerball? Will I have a quarter life crisis? Anthing goes, folks! Whatever the case, I’ve got a goooooood feeling about this year, and I’m stoked to have you amazing people along for the ride.

ALSO, I’m SO STOKED because I’ve got the *best* lineup of 25th birthday gifts for YOU guys. Make sure you’re following along on Instagram to not miss the madness – starting tonight with TWO (and then one every day hereafter), I’ve got exciting things coming your way this week!!!

In figuring out this year’s 25th birthday blog post, I was looking through past years, and WOW how things have changed (thank the sweet Lord baby Jesus). If you wanna traverse that fun (+ funny) walk down memory lane, here is 24, 23, 22, 21, and 20…(wow).

So this year, I’m sticking with the “F” theme for a year that is fabulous, fierce, fearless, fashionable, funny, and…FUN. So here are 25 fun facts about me! (My 23rd birthday post was also fun facts, but these are all different!).

  1. I’m notorious for leaving my coffee in the microwave or losing it in the house altogether. If you come over, chances are you’ll find a mug somewhere with literally ONE SIP of coffee left in it.
  2. My daughter came two months early and was in the NICU for 73 days. (Here is Part 1 and Part 2 of her birth story, and what life is really like as a NICU parent…)
  3. I’m an Enneagram 3, with a 3w2 wing.
  4. I’m also a dessert before dinner kinda gal. 🙂
  5. Can’t STAND when my nails aren’t done or when they’re chipped. I’ve been getting gel at the salon lately because of it!
  6. At my first swim lesson when I was 3, I jumped off the training platform into the deep water when the teacher wasn’t looking. Pretty on par with my attitude towards life I’d say.
  7. I have an IQ of 145. But I was tested a long time ago, so I’m afraid to test again in case it dropped over the years. Ha! 😉
  8. Sometimes I just watch wedding videos of total strangers and cry.
  9. I have a song on Spotify with my acapella group from college!
  10. Someday I’d lovelovelove to be a motivational speaker.
  11. Big fan of takeout. Big big fan.
  12. I will never turn down a massage, ever. If it were up to me, I’d get one once a week!
  13. Always have candles burning. Always.
  14. Speaking of candles, there are currently 18 Bath and Body Works candles under our roof. Do I have a problem? No.
  15. I am a very organized vacationer/traveler. This one comes from Taylor, and she would know since we’ve traveled a LOT together. (Like to Disneyworld, and to Charleston, and to Florida…)
  16. “You have one of the most extensive shoe collections I’ve ever seen.” – Also Taylor. I mean… 😉
  17. Dark chocolate only. NOT milk or white. Blech.
  18. I have a special talent for making hype playlists. (Feel free to follow me on Spotify!) 
  19. I don’t have one Starbucks order. I like to mix it up depending on my mood and try new things always.
  20. My nana, my mom and I all knew our men were “the ones” right away (literally, on the first date).
  21. I always sleep with socks on.
  22. I’ve never had a Lunchable, Uncrustable, or Spaghettios.
  23. Didn’t throw up ONCE during pregnancy! Woohoo!
  24. I’ve missed countless movies’ endings because I fall asleep.
  25. On my way to move into college, I told my mom I would be single for the next 4 years “to focus on school.” The next day I met Jamie… 🙂
