10 Things You Need To Know About Me If We're Going To Be BFFs

I first have to say that I know I wear these jeans a lot. I am totally down for the boyfriend jean trend which Jordan has decided to call husband jeans. Also, if you haven't noticed, I've kind of stepped away from fashion blogging. A lot of that has to do with the fact that this outfit above is a good representation of what I wear every day: jeans and a t-shirt, a lot of neutral tones and what most people would call boring. Not sorry about it. Anyways... on to the main event that is this post...

Last week I read this post by Jen Swedhin, a lady that just seems really awesome and cool. She did the following prompt, "10 things you need to know about me if we are going to be best friends." I really liked that. It's had me thinking about my best friends and what my answers would be. I have few people in my life that I call honest and true friends, and 100% of them live far away from me. The more we move around and the older I get I realize the importance of finding those kinds of friends where ever you go. Kindred spirits as one might call them. Sometimes they are not found but other times they are and it is the best ever. SO, here are mine...10 things you need to know about me if we're going to be BFFs:


1. I will, without a doubt, embarrass myself often in front of you and everyone we know. Remember that and try not to make a big deal of it when it inevitably happens, i.e. just ignore it.

2. If you want to talk, one on one is best. I don't do well in big groups and I will never fight for attention. (If you want to see one of those moments I was referring to in #1, just ask me a question in a big group of people. That'll do it)

3. When I find music I like, I listen to it on repeat for months. That drives some people crazy *couch*my husband*cough*. For instance, I am still listening to Bangerz every day and it came out almost six months ago.

4. I hate hate hate being startled. If you ever think it'd be funny to jump out and scare me, you're wrong.

5. I watch TV and I can talk about certain shows for hours. I tend to obsessive think and TV is one of few things that helps me relax and let things go.

6. I am an early bird. Do not expect me to be any fun after 11 o'clock at night. Who am I kidding? 10 o'clock.

7. I am the most comfortable and "myself" when I'm with my family. That will always be true.

8. If I have something to say, I will say it. People often call me quiet and some of that has to do with #2 but I will speak up when I want to. But on the other hand, I am not afraid of silence.

9. I'm easy to please and would really prefer a night in. My idea of a girls' night is spent on the couch talking for hours, watching movies and eating crappy food.

10. I want to take your picture, please please let me.

There you go. That's what you need to know if we're going to be besties. I feel like I would really like to make lists for my best friends. Like, "what it's like being best friend with..." kind of thing. Thinking about it. Anyways, I want to read everyone else's "10 Things" so I am going to be one of THOSE people and make this a tagging thing. So I tag Emma of Smile Me Pretty, Bridget of Deer Circus, and Lauren of Awkward Girls.

  3. Number 4, over and over again. I hate being startled. Not funny at all! I'll be your BFF if you ever come to Scotland :)

  4. Oh my gosh! This is like my own list that I am reading! We have so much in common that it's not even funny!! My boyfriend hates it when I play the same song over & over, from the car to being in the house to being on vinyl! What's worse is that I have no tune when it comes to singing! ;P

    1. Well that's awesome. :) I've clicked your profile a few times and can never get access. Would like to know who you are. Haha. :)

    2. Gosh I know I'm hard to get to know because I shy away from all social media. I don't have a blog, Facebook, or instagram. Just pinterest and email haha. Maybe I could email you?

  7. I, too, am an early bird, and relate to many of the items of your list. And as your photos reflect, jeans and t-shirts can be stylish too! I love those little ankle boots. Where did you get them?

  8. Definitely basically all of these but #6, I'm only good in the morning if its because I stayed up all night until the next morning. Haha. However, I am rather delirious and hilarious I think my husband has told me. And #10 I've probably scared off half my friends from trying to chase them around with my camera. Not in a creepy way, but like a normal creepy friend way haha.

  9. I can really relate to a lot of these - especially the one about music on repeat for way, way too long. I'm pretty sure I have driven my husband, friends, roommates, neighbors insane with this one more than once.

  10. I'm so glad to "meet you" through Facebook and thankful to have been led to your blog. I can already tell I'm going to be obsessed with your images. Beautiful storytelling!

  11. i love this! also: number 6 + 10, forever and ever, amen.

    i'll happily do this.

  12. It's good to meet another morning person. By 3pm my brain starts to shut down and and not much can really get done. I prefer to wake up at the crack of dawn and run around early so I can relax in the afternoon.

    And I'm with you on no.5 - what shows are you watching at the moment?

    1. totally totally agree with you about mornings. And The Walking Dead season finale was just yesterday, so I've been geeking out over the that. My all time favorite drama series is Breaking Bad and I am in the middle of watching that for my second time through. I finished Freaks and Geeks a few weeks ago. But then I've been watching Friends just all day, every day. :)

    2. Friends is my go to show. Always.

      I've sadly never watched Breaking Bad but have been meaning to do for far too long. I fear that I may have missed the bandwagon on it though. Is it okay to watch a show way after it's finished?

  13. This list seriously sounds like me. Although, I'm pretty much useless after 9PM haha...I also love #9 - the perfect girls night ;)

  14. I am wearing boyfriend jeans right now. My husband likes to make fun of them as well, saying, "but boys wouldn't wear those jeans" haha. And #4!!!!! Holy heck yes. I agree. It's the worst. (I get startled if I'm in a room by myself and someone comes in and starts talking a little too loudly) And a big reason why I don't like April Fools. Oh, and #10. I think I bothered my best friend because she was always my photo subject when I did projects for school.

  15. I really love this outfit! I need to get a good raglan shirt. and I completely agree with #2 :)

  16. this is so funny! haha i can relate to a lot of these… if too many people are looking at me at once, i panic. So making a big deal of me saying the wrong word or something humiliating just makes me sad :(

  17. Yeah, we're the same human. Except I don't sleep ever, but that's because I have issues. Sooooo doing this tomorrow. Thanks for the tag!

    PS. On the real, be expecting a mix cd from me in the mail quite soon.

  18. These are great! Glad I inspired you :)

  19. Yep, this list sounds a lot like me too. I just read Quiet by Susan Cain - have you heard of it? I feel like it's been floating around for a while so forgive me if this is old news to you. It's a hefty book but golly darn it do I feel like I understand myself better after reading it and I think you could enjoy it too! Aaaaand, no judgement about 10pm. My husband may or may not make fun of me for occasionally going to bed at 9pm, so.

  20. I absolutely HATE being startled, too. My ex-husband used to do that and think it was hilarious despite my tears a few times. We aren't married anymore for many reasons, but that's one of them.

  21. SO doing this! Also, I relate to almost every single one on your list, so I think we should be best friends.

    xoxo.

  22. Ha! #4 is how my husband keeps himself entertained ;) Glad I found your blog, this was a great post to get to know you! Love your photo portfolio, too!

  23. I'm 99.999% sure that you just described me. Night's in and one on one (or very small group) settings for the win!
