On Wednesday November 10, 2010 I wrote the post below. I can’t believe how much blogging, tweeting and facebooking has changed my life since then! Today I say thanks for my many blessings, all the doors that have been opened, the incredible friends I have made, and the astonishingly smart and savvy women (and men!) I have met along the way!
I’ve been “outed”.
Turns out going to a social media conference forces you to show your real face. I went to Blissdom Canada and met people in real life. Weird right? I guess it was inevitable, I mean I couldn’t walk around with a bag over my head forever. At this point my friends and family still don’t know I blog, so I can continue to make grammatical mistakes, blog about sex and indelicate bathroom situations, and b*tch about Mommy cliques. But I’ve been thinking, is it fair for every other blog in the world
yeah like I’m that popular to be flashin and posting my picture around when I have not even posted one of myself yet??
So with that in mind. Here you go. This is me:
….and just so you know.
I am not the girl who can pull off the two cute pony tails…not even at home.
I am not the life of the party, even if I wish I was, but I do host a fabulous one.
I love a great glass of wine, but wow, wine hates me now. Instant headache. Same deal with hotdogs.
I can pretty much talk to anyone.
I am a rule follower. A bit of a goody two shoes. Sexy right?
I am prompt.
I detest liars, I get this from my Dad.
I am one of the few people who adore the sunshine, but prays for rain when the barometer takes a dip. Me and weather changes do not get along.
I am 5 pounds ..nope..10 pounds over weight and sick about it. Having had a rib/back injury doesn’t seem to be a good enough excuse anymore.
I adore all things popcorn, chocolate, anything baked and Starbucks. Yummmm. This is not helping.
I crave travel. Adore the planning and am usually thinking about my next trip before the suitcases are unpacked.
I firmly believe in the power of true love.
I hate having to ask for help.
I can be passive aggressive, not sneaky, just quietly annoyed.
I love my children with my entire heart…so much that it hurts sometimes.
I am blessed to be married to my best friend.
Just so you know…..
So there you go, two years later and I still feel the same. Perhaps even more vulnerable and naked now since my Mom and neighbours found out I blog!
So now it is your turn, go on spill…what should I know about you?
