Getting to Know You (Err Me)

Every so often I love to do this type of post where I just share some totally random fact about myself, it's just a fun way for you guys to get to know me a little better. In fact I like it so much I might just make this a monthly post, we will see :)

1. When I get sick (which usually isn't all that often) I become a complete and utter baby. I'm talking about crying at a drop of a hat, and so much whine coming out of my mouth it's kind of embarrassing haha. 

2. I am addicted to chai lattes, so when we are in Phoenix I spoil myself constantly with them. Back on the mountain when I have to make them myself I just can't ever get them to taste quite as yummy. Thank goodness Dutch Bros has a rewards program!

3. Several years ago I started the tradition of getting Will a Lego Mini Figure for any and all special occasions. He has always been a really big fan of legos so I thought it would just be a really fun little thing to get him. So far he has a London Bobby, a Tiki Masked Guy, a Scuba-diver, and a couple others that I can't remember off hand. If you are ever looking for a fun little gift for someone I really suggest the Lego Mini Figures.

4. I recently came across my old Tamagotchi and Nano Baby toys! I think I kind of have to get some new batteries for them and play them again. I really hope this isn't like the time I thought it would be a good idea to put batteries in the old Furby I found. Ugh talk about Jar Jar Binks annoying!

5. My dad recently reminded me of the magic that is milk and sugar rice. It was this thing he used to make us when we were little, especially when we were sick at home. It is exactly how it sounds: rice, milk, sugar, and you can add a little butter too. It might sound really weird if you didn't grow up with it, but man-oh-man did it take me back to being little. 

6. My friend Hannah got me a copy of The Forager's Harvest: A Guide to Identifying, Harvesting, and Preparing Edible Wild Plants, for Christmas and I can hardly wait to get back to the mountain! There are so many plants and berries growing all over the place I would love to know what is edible or not. Though I am little afraid of misidentifying something and poisoning myself, I think the pictures and descriptions are good enough that won't happen.  

7. Sometimes I will have a memory that will then trigger a craving for something I haven't had in years. Most recently it is a chocolate malt from this dive burger place in Phoenix. When we were little my dad would take my brother and I there for a weekend treat, and we would all got burgers and share a large chocolate malt. Being the youngest there I often didn't get my fair share, so now I really want to hit up the shop and get my own and not share one drop of it, haha.

There you have it, another set of random facts about yours truly. Please feel free to leave some random facts about yourself in the comments, or if you have done your own random facts post please share the

  13. Mmm, I love chai lattes. I can never make them right at home so I just settle for Indian chai. It still hits the spot. Sugar rice sounds pretty delicious- like easy rice pudding! Yum. I always love these posts.
