45 Things You Don’t Know About Me

In honor of my 45th birthday, here is a list of 45 things you may not know about me.


Certain Things You Never Knew About Me

1. I dislike all things bubbly with 2 exceptions - baths or friends

2. Hold the ice please, I like my water room temp

3. I’m a lefty but can only peel clementines (which I eat nightly) and use scissors with my right hand

4. Sometimes I mix up Jackson (my son) and Dunkin (my dog) names with each other

5. I waited in line for 2 hours when I was 9 months pregnant in 2001 to get into a sample sale to buy pink Gucci baby loafers. No regrets! Especially since they amortized over 2 daughters

6. I have awful karma with technology - I touch something electronic and it just doesn’t work. If you’ve ever been with me near any tech, you probably know that thing about me

7. I learned how to do a headstand at age 42

8. I’ve ski-ed once in my life and that was enough for me to decide I prefer the Apres Ski experience to actually going down the mountain

9. My refrigerator does not actually look like pictures on Instagram all the time!

10. I love to entertain but I prefer making it look pretty over actually cooking the food

11. I’d rather be cold than hot; I’ll take 20 degrees and snowing over 95 and humid any day

12. I hate admin – filling out paperwork stresses me out – I’ll do anything to avoid it

13. I love people but I also love alone time

14. I am a binge reader

15. I’m a sucker for bows and ruffles

16. I never got into reality TV – I am not equipped to discuss the latest episodes of Real Housewives or the Bachelor

17. In another life I might want to host a tv show…

18. I love how kids look in a school uniform (ok some of you might know that)

19. I still have mix tapes my friends made for me in the 90s but I sadly don’t have a tape recorder to play them on…

20. My first alcoholic drink was a Long Island Iced Tea…in a snapple bottle sipped on the Long Island Rail Road

21. The most valuable skill I ever learned in school was how to type

22. I looooove Karaoke - I sing in the car (try not to embarrass my kids in carpool but sometimes the music just hits and I have to… and the shower; shower singing seems to be a trait I have passed on)

23. I’m a member of Overthinkers Anonymous

24. I have severe wanderlust and a travel bucket list pages long (but also want to keep going back to the places I love)

27. I’m usually the one in charge of ordering for the table at a restaurant

28. I have a mild addiction to belt bags (just ask The Hangout)

29. I know how to do calligraphy, I used to have a collection of fancy pens and all

30. I survived one pregnancy on Sino steak sandwiches, Coke and super pretzels alone…she was my easiest baby

41. Teaching my kids how to drive has been the scariest part of parenting to date

42. I’m a master procrastinator

43. My spirit of choice is Tequila. I learned the hard way that vodka is not my friend

44. I am still figuring out what I want to be when I grow up

45. My kids never slept in my bed but my dog does
