Seven Things About Me

{1} When Stewart and I were traveling in Europe in 2010 we randomly saw Lady Gaga outside Temple Bar one night in Dublin. We also saw Mike Tyson in the Iceland airport. It was a good trip for celebrity sightings!

{2} One of the reasons my mom chose the name "Sarah" is because it can't be easily shortened or "nicknamed." She hates nicknames but I love them and I've always wished I had more! Some people call me "Sarahbeth" for "Sarah Elizabeth" but that's not really the same...

{3} I can't whistle. Like, at all. I also can't really snap my fingers very well. Don't worry, I have other talents.

{4} Speaking of talents, I can pretty much recite verbatim every single animated Disney movie that was released between 1989 and 1994. Seriously, I did it along with The Little Mermaid the other night for Stew and he was seriously impressed! And of course I do the musical numbers, too. Duh.
{5} I am super OCD about answering blog comments. I have to answer them chronologically in the order they were received, and for each one I send a response plus a comment back on the sender's blog (wherever applicable). When I get behind on answering blog comments it gives me massive anxiety.

{6} I own three huge bins full of collector edition Barbie dolls in the original packaging. I started collecting them when I was in high school and I have no idea what I'm going to do with them now! Maybe if the next baby is a girl I'll give them to her and someone can finally play with them!

{7} After graduating from college I lost the 40 pounds I gained over those four years. I don't think anything has ever made me feel better about myself. Needless to say, I am now super conscious of my weight, nutrition, and exercise habits. Something I never had to do before my damn metabolism slowed down... ugh!!

I hope you enjoyed getting to know a little more about me! Sorry my answers are kind of lengthy, but being pithy has never been my strength. If you made it to the end, mad props.

  1. <3 Thanks for the nomination!!! :-)

  2. I love nicknames and I love having a name that comes with lots of nicknames. I can't wait to hear what Marshawn's name is and what his nicknames will be!

  3. Thank you so much for nominating me! You are so sweet!

    I can't whistle either. Scott makes fun of me for it. Don't think I haven't tried. I have. It just doesn't happen. I also have tons of collector Barbies. The fact that they're collectibles means I don't think I could bear someone playing with them. lol. Right now, they're taking up space in my parents' house. Maybe someday I'll try to sell them, but it's hard for me to do that. I'm so darn sentimental....

    I hate that my metabolism has slowed. I just want to sit on the couch and eat whatever I want without gaining weight. Is that too much to ask?? lol

  4. Awww, thanks girl! :) You are too sweet!!! :) I can't whistle or snap either!!!!!! Whistling turns into me just spitting everywhere. haha! I'm so jealous of your Barbie collection! If you only have boys I call dibs on it. ;)

  5. Awww.. you saved your favorite person for last! Stop it-- you shouldn't have. Anyway-- I'm sure you've Sarah Bear-a! I come up with nicknames for everyone and I have a few for you (you've seen them over our text)..

  6. Oh.. and I watched the Little Mermaid the other night and know all the words too!

  7. Thank you, you're too sweet! We chose Foster's name because there weren't any obvious nicknames that we didnt like for it. We loved the name Bennet but didnt want people to call him "Ben" because there are already Bens in our family.... our solution, a non-nickname name! Ha! You and Foster have something in common!

  8. Thanks so much for the nominations! I promise, I'll get to it!!
