7 Quick Takes: 38th Birthday Edition

7 Quick Takes

I’m up to my hairline in homework and my kid is having a meltdown, so of course I’m blogging. 🙂 My birthday is this Saturday, so here are 7 random facts about me.

— 1 —

I don’t like lettuce. I’ll eat salads if the dressing can mask the flavor of the greens, but I hate lettuce on sandwiches and burgers.

— 2 —

I’m allergic to cats. Shocking, I know. I’m on a bunch of allergy meds and I get shots weekly for it.

— 3 —

My first broken bone was at 14 months old. My evil twin slammed my finger in a door and broke it. It was too small to cast so they had to use band-aids to immobilize it.

I taught myself to read at age 3. Almost 35 years later, I’m still going strong.

— 5 —

I’m an alcohol gel nazi. I blame it on having a preemie who had quite a few hospital visits between the ages of 2-5. My favorite scent: apple.

— 6 —

I didn’t get addicted to coffee until my 30’s. I don’t think I drank it regularly until I was 34 years old. My go-to order: iced venti latté from $tarbux with whole milk and two pumps of vanilla.

I am deathly afraid of heights. I even hate standing on a chair to get something off of a shelf.
