That’s how old I am today.  Officially 1/4 of a century old.  Ahh!!!  In honor of my 25th birthday I am sharing 25 things.  Enjoy.


1.  I have lived in 5 different states in my life: Wisconsin, Arizona, Texas, Missouri and now Georgia.

2.  I never had a sweet tooth … until I got pregnant.  More on that in a future post.

3.  My favorite city that I have ever been to is Edinburgh, Scotland.  I would go back in a heartbeat.

4.  I really hate flying.  Like bad anxiety hate.  But it’s never kept me from getting on a plane.

5.  My Starbucks drink of choice is an iced, grande, non-fat, chai tea latte.

6.  I hate coconut water.  There I said it.  I think it’s nasty and don’t get the hype.

7.  I am addicted to my iPhone.  It’s sad.

8.  Chris initially thought it was weird when I met my blog friends.  He’s used to it now.

9.  I want to learn how to surf.  Desperately.

10.  I have broken my arm, fingers, toes, and had multiple stress fractures in my ankle.  Fun times.

11.  I have minors in Chemistry and Classics.  Two things that couldn’t be any further removed but I love them both.

12.  There are so many movies that I haven’t seen.  Chris is ashamed of me.

13.  I bite my nails.  It’s gross, I know.  I am trying to quit.  Manicures help.

14.  My family has a “birthday hat” that my mom makes us wear when we open presents.  I am hoping Chris forgets that we have our own.  Somehow I don’t think I’ll be that lucky … and no Victoria I will not wear it to dinner 😉

15.  My ring size is a 4.5.  I have seriously small fingers for my height.

16.  I am SUPER competitive.  So is Chris.  Needless to say we don’t play a lot of board games against each other but we are AWESOME partners … unless we lose.

17.  Sunflowers and tulips are my favorite flowers.  I also have an affinity for hydrangeas.  I hate roses.

18.  I need my fingers AND toes to count all my aunts and uncles.

19.  Potato chips are my healthy living downfall.  Particularly in the form of buffalo ranch Doritos.

20.  Sometimes I have to pinch myself to remind me that my life isn’t a dream.  I am so blessed and thankful for what I have.

21.  Being across the country from my family SUCKS.  It doesn’t get better with time … it gets worse.

22.  I still can’t believe I have people who actually read my blog … AND comment.  You all rock my world.

23.  If I can be half as a good a mom as my mom was to me Emmie is going to one lucky lady.  My mom is my role-model and best friend.  I pray that 25 years from now Emmie and I are as close as my mom and I are.

24.  Being an Army wife is challenging on a good day … however, I wouldn’t trade our experiences or our Army family for anything.

25.  Becoming a mother is greater than I ever imagined it could be.  Sharing this 25th year of life with the best husband and most amazing daughter a girl could ever ask for is the most incredible gift I could ever get.


We have a fun-filled day planned … including FINALLY seeing The Avengers!!!  I can’t wait :)  Shout out to my birthday twin Charlotte!!  Happy birthday girl :)


Enjoy your Saturday friends!
