24 random facts for my 24th birthday


I've seen a few blog friends do this lately & thought I'd join the party! Today is my 24th birthday and I thought I'd come up with 24 random facts about me for your reading pleasure ;) Readyyyyy? Go!

1. I paint my nails ((at least)) twice a week.

2.  I have two older brothers, I'm the baby girl!

3. I cringe when people use the phrase "you deserve it." No need to step onto my soap box to tell you why. 

4. I'm an employee of Anthropologie. ((BIG smile))

5. I'm super competitive. 

 6. I've worked my butt off and am SO thankful for Oh, Sweet Joy and the success God has blessed me with in the past 3 months. 

7. Besides Chase, my best friend in the world is my cousin, Jarratt. Here we are in a school play in Elementary School being George & Martha Washington haha!! 
 ((My mom sewed that dress!))
and this is us in how time flies ;) 

8. I suck at using patterns & I'm convinced that my brain just doesn't work that way. If I make something for myself, I make it up as I go...dresses, handbags, skirts, tops, etc.

 9. Chase and I LOVE concerts and are going to see Iron & Wine for the first time this summer, as well as Ray Lamontagne for the second time. Be still my heart.

 10. Although I thoroughly enjoy Ray, Iron & Wine, the Decemberists, Mumford & Sons, the Avett brothers, etc...I would choose to listen to oldies over anything. ANYTHING. 

11. I wear 4 rings at all times. My wedding ring & engagement ring, my Aggie ring ((whoop!)), and a James Avery Ring that reminds me of New Zealand :)

 12. Speaking of New Zealand, I LOVE to travel -- I've been to Africa, Paris, New Zealand, the Maldives, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, and ONE day I would like Chase to take me to Iceland. Yes. Iceland.

13. I used to have a nose ring and would like to get it re-pierced. See above photo ;)

14. I rarely go a day without drinking a Dr. Pepper. But no Diet Dr. Pepper, please. Sick.

15. My maiden name is Huddleston.

16. I would LOVE to sing back up vocals//harmonies for Bethany Dillon...just ONCE!  I met her at a concert when Chase & I first got married. B-Dill...want to be best friends? 

17.  I have *almost* decided that I'm going to train for/compete in a triathlon. I've been running & biking long distances the past two weeks, but I'm REALLY hesitant about the swimming 1/4-1/2 mile in open water thing. Yikes. 

18.  I don't like the color pink. 

19. I usually don't wear makeup except for mascara. 

20. I don't like or drink beer. 

21. I could eat candy ALL day. 

22. I'm really impatient. 

23. When Chase & I first got married, I made breakfast ((bacon, eggs & toast)) for him almost every morning and then fell asleep on the couch until class. We had a LOT of bacon that semester. 

24. I have lopsided dimples. One under my left eye & one on the right side in the "normal" dimple spot.

Feeling enlightened?? HA! ;)

**Stay tuned for an Oh, Sweet Joy! Giveaway to celebrate the big 2-4! You'll soon have a chance to enter for your chance to win one of these pretties!**



  1. Iceland is in my top 5 places to visit right now. Who doesn't want to see a puffin?!

    I was nodding "yes" to almost all of your things. I totally am right there with you with the "you deserve it" comment. Um, no, I don't deserve anything, actually.

    Also, I too love DP & Ray. feel super blessed by my shop and want to get my nose pierced. (hm, maybe we should have a little adventure in AZ???)

    It seems you and I have similar taste in music. (as well as previously having nose piercings)
    I wanted to go to Iron & Wine last year when he came to my city, but it sold out so fast!
