Happy Birthday To Me!


Today I turn 31.
I cannot believe it!
Where have the years gone?
I was hoping to have some type of clever birthday post- but I don't.......
So instead we are going to celebrate it true Rachel style- a bunch of random.
Because that's exactly how my life is.
How about a list of some (useless) things you may or may not know about me?
1. The first thing I do when I wake up is start the coffee.
2. I was born in California.
3. I have always wanted a vintage VW Beetle.
4. I'm somewhat nervous/scared of chickens.
5. We have 9 chickens in the backyard. ha!
6. When I was in elementary school I used to tell the lunch ladies I was allergic to peas because I hated them that much. They sent a note home and asked my mom about it, that was end of that.
7. I once named a dog after my best friend Emily.
8. When I laugh really hard I usually cry, snort and snot. It's not pretty.
9. I cry at just about anything these days.
10. I have been known to whip the car across 4 lanes of traffic to get to a Starbucks. It's that serious.
11. I love swimming and being in the water. Then I watched Shark Week and it changed everything.
12. I LOVE to read.
13. Whenever I am sick I watch Pride and Prejudice.
14. I like sniffing my Beagle's stinky ears.
15. I smell every bite of food before it enters my mouth.
16. I very likely have some weird thing with smell.
17. I haven't colored my hair in over 2 years.
18. It's going to be hard to make it to 31 on this list because I'm really not that interesting.
19. I'm usually cheerful when I wake up.
20. I used to be a night owl and then I married a farm boy who likes to wake up before the chickens. Ex. 4am!
21. For my 21st birthday my mom and I went a cruise. During hurricane season. Enough said.
22. I'm one of those dorks that could stare at pictures of puppies and any other baby animals all day.
23. I went to Germany twice when I was in highschool and housed 3 different German exchange students. It was an amazing experience!
24. I once learned 40 bible verses in order to go to church camp. Don't ask me if I can remember them now.
25. I have learned how to knit 3 or 4 different times, but I don't keep up with it. This year I hope to conquer that.
26. I played piano for 8 years.
27. I usually let my hair air dry.
28. My hubby is my BFF.
29. I have an enormous amount of fabric and a sewing machine I hardly know how to use.
30. I am a big fan of a spicy crab roll.
31. I love the Frank Sinatra channel on Pandora.
I came across this cute print on Pinterest .
This is so me, it's not even funny.
I really do love BIG mugs!
Well here's to a happy Wednesday!
Today the hubby will be baking my annual Red Velvet Birthday Cake from SCRATCH!
He really is a keeper:)
And I will likely eat some for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Because I am firm believer that on your birthday you can eat whatever you like an it won't go to your hips! :)


    i'm so thankful that God blessed me with your friendship this year!
    you are absolutely NOT boring, and I LOVED reading this!
    i will be thinking about you all day, because TODAY is a very special day indeed!
    God gave us YOU!
    you are a treasure girl, and DON'T you forget it!!
    love you!!!!!!!

    LOVE this list...and i have never had from scratch red velvet cake! :/

  2. Happy 31st!! Hope this year is a great one, filled with laughter, love and coffee. :)


I love hearing from you! :)
