Thirty One

This morning I woke up a 31 year old woman. Can I still call myself a girl? Where the hell has the time gone? Sometimes I sit and think to myself, how the heck did I get here? And don't confuse "here" with somewhere bad. Because I'm kinda living my best life ever possible. But, you know what I mean.

So in honor of turning 31, here are 31 things you might not know about me.

I've jumped off this quarry cliff. 65 ft tall. It was crazy stupid. I don't think my parents ever even knew.

I sneeze a lot. My allergies get worse year after year. I just finally made an allergist appt.

I get really grouchy when I'm hungry. I'm kinda passionate about food.

I'm not a big sweet eater, but Baskin Robbins should bring back Chocolate Mouse Royal for shizzy.

I moved to Charleston without knowing a soul. Best risk taken ever.

I collected trolls when I was a child. My mom saved them and now my kids play with them.

I'm so relieved that I didn't marry a man who wants to vacation in an RV. No offense. #notmything.

Josh proposed to me 2 months after we met. That was over 7 years ago.

My pet peeve is lateness. 

Chassity isn't my real name. I witnessed a mob hit and am in witness protection. That's a lie.

I'm not so much a pet lover. Especially dogs. My husband says this means I'm soulless.

I'm grossed out by gum, soft drinks, and cigarettes.

The one time I tried to learn to surf I got sea sick.

I'm terrified of what's in the ocean, bugs that sting, scary movies, and the dark.

I dated a psychotic guy when I was in high school. Just long enough to learn not to date another one.

I bite my nails. It's disgusting. I know I know I should stop.

I love to travel far distances and surprise people by just showing up. You should try it sometime.

I have a trucker mouth, with the f-bomb being my most favorite of them all.

I also eat like a trucker. Burgers, pizza, mexican, and cheesy fries are my favorites.

I had to have 3 blood transfusions after delivering Fletcher. That shit was cray.

(You're not getting a picture of that one.)

Growing up, BabySitter's Club (though I never babysat) & Sweet Valley High books were my jam.

I'm addicted to my iphone, my mac, and singing.

The Parent Trip (the original with Hayley Mills) is one of my most favorite movies ever.

Before the age of 11 I logged a lot of miles on 4-wheelers. Even got pulled over on one.

I'm generally really cheery, but I also have an inner hot head. It's true.

I sang "It Must've Been The Mistletoe" in front of my whole school in the 6th grade.

While I sang that song I probably had a huge bow right on top of my head. I used to do that.

I know the words to most raps songs from 1990-2005. I don't know what happened after that.

I really want to get a breast reduction one day.

I check my front porch multiple times a day for deliveries. Aways hoping.

This dress I wore to my 30th bday party last year fits kinda tight today. I'm working on that.

But not today :) xoxo

Happy birthday Chassity, loved getting to know you better! I am turning 31 next week and it was so funny to see some of the similarities we share. I bet my troll collection and Babysitter's Club books are still in my mom's attic, I am going to give her a call and check! Hope you have a great day!

Happy Birthday!!!! 31 , you have such a blessed life! Your list just proved that you are as beautiful on the inside as you are on the outside. Some things on your list are exactly me and others are light years away from me, ha! Ex... That cliff no way, ever!
PS Best take away that you once dated a cray in high school but married a prince :)))) praying my high school daughter follows suit sooner than later:(

This post is so awesome. I'm also 31, and #28 really resonated with me. I karaoke early 90's rap songs like a boss, but can't keep up with FloRida or Pitbull. Ouch! Happy birthday!
