10 Things I Hate to Admit
Everybody has a few things that they hate to admit, and today I am revealing a few of mine! I am by no means a perfect person, and they say the first step towards fixing a problem is admitting it. So, here it goes! This post does include some affiliate links, but they are for your convenience. I promise! Please click here to read my full disclosure policy.
1.) Believe it or not, I’ve actually been blogging since 2012 when The Summery Umbrella shop first came into existence. I rarely admit this fun fact though because my posts were so horrible that I ended up deleting about 99.9% of them.
I’m talking vague explanations, fuzzy photos, and consistency was non-existent. I’m absolutely embarrassed just thinking about it!
Cross your fingers I can get this consistency thing going again. I definitely do NOT want another rehash of 2012 ;)
2.) I wear a mouth guard at night because I grind my teeth. Yes—I am one sexy beast!
3.) I’m a complete spaz. I have a tendency to think about a hundred things at the same time (none of them usually being related), and usually come off like I’ve had 10 cups of coffee.
However… I have to be honest. Coffee and energy drinks can (and sometimes are) a contributing factor!
4.) I pick at my nail cuticles. It’s a horrible and nervous habit!
It gets so bad sometimes that they can turn into a bloody mess, and then you’ll see me sporting 8 different Bandaids.
5.) I can’t sing, but I pretend that I can when I’m in the car. I probably sound like a dying cat, but as long as you don’t put on one of my “jams” you should be pretty safe.
6.) Hmmm… let’s talk about hair washing. Oh heavens to Betsy I’m not even sure why I’m going here. Sigh.
Ok, here it goes.
I . . . *cringing*. . . deep breath . . . rarely wash my hair.
When I say rarely I mean… twice a week. Maybe.
Typically I just use baby powder or dry shampoo to keep the oil down. I honestly just hate having wet hair. Weird–I know.
7.) I have a potty mouth.
I know, I know. You’re probably thinking… what?! But it’s true. I’m really good about keeping it out of the blog and in public, but once Mike and I settle in for the night (and Miss Mini Me is tucked away) the day’s events are explained with colorful adjectives and typically with wild hand gestures as well.
8.) I work too hard.
It doesn’t sound like something you wouldn’t want to admit, but in my case it’s kind of a positive and a curse all piled into one.
You see, I love (and am truly passionate) about my job so I have a really hard time taking time for me, or just stopping in general. Moderation is key, and apparently I’m still learning how to accomplish it ;)
9.) I have a major sweet tooth. I have been known to throw out candy, cookies, cakes, etc (even when we just bought them) just to stop myself from eating the entire container in one sitting. True story.
10.) Last, but certainly not least… I can watch all eight Harry Potter movies every day, and never get tired of them. I usually just have them playing in the background while I work so it’s not dead silent in my studio, but I also have been known to have a HP marathon–by myself. On more than one occasion.
Well, there you have it, folks.
I have flaws, and many of them! ;)
