Today marks my 27th birthday! To celebrate my birthday I thought I would do a post of twenty-seven things you might not know about me! Thanks to the sweet, Traci for helping me to come up with random facts. Even after over eight years of friendship I know some of these surprised her.
one. I am the only one of my siblings, not named after another member of my family. My parent's just liked the name Jessica and went with it.
two. My favorite childhood book was Chrysanthemum. Hop on Pop, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, and Angelina Ballerina are also in the top 5.
three. Crest wins against Colgate anyday.
four. I played the clarinet in middle and high school (even in the marching band).
five. Since learning about them in elementary school, I have loved narwhals and sloths.
six. I have never been to DisneyWorld but am a champion at Disney SceneIt. I have been to Disneyland multiple times including for the 50th anniversary!
seven, I have "transposed" teeth, meaning my teeth are switched. My canine and premolar are swapped. However, you would not know looking at me thanks to the orthodonist for shaving my tooth.
eight. I have seen 20 musicals (not counting seeing Wicked three different times) and I'm excited that Hamilton will make number 21 this summer.
nine. My favorite movie quote is from You've Got Mail "Kathleen Kelly: "Don't you love New York in the fall? It makes me wanna buy school supplies." Joe Fox: "I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address. On the other hand, this not knowing has its charms."
eleven. I eat weird food combinations like dorritos and cottage cheese or green beans with ketchup. I completely blame my mom for teaching me to eat these foods with strange condiments.
twelve. My very first blog was named Jane Austen Meets Southern Prepster.
thirteen. I am pretty sure the only reason I took French in High School is my love for Belle/Beauty in the Beast.
fourteen. If I could be on any tv show it would have to be something on the food network or a cooking segment on Hoda & KathyLee
fifteen. If I could have a celebrity dinner party I would invite, Chip & Joanna Gaines, Lin Manuel-Miranda, Kristen Bell, and Aiden Turner.
sixteen. I hate orange highlighters. They never seem to work out well.
seventeen. I have read Ella Enchanted at least ten times. I read it almost every year.
eightteen. My go-to order at Marble Slabs/Coldstone is chocolate ice cream with strawberries and gummi bears.
nineteen. When I was little, I thought I was going to be a teacher. Now, I know I could never teach more than my PreK Sunday School class.
twenty. Carolina was my number 3 school but I could not imagine going to another institution. I am a proud Tar Heel.
twenty-two. I have been in a car going over 100 mph.
twenty-three. If I could only eat one food for a whole week it would probably be a cobb salad.
twenty-four. The next three places I want to travel to are: Scotland, Greece, and New Zealand.
twenty-five. I am a very picky eater. It all has to do with textural issues but cooked veggies and fish are no gos.
twenty-six. I don't dream. A few times a year I will remember a part of a dream for like 5 minutes after I wake up and then it's gone.
twenty-seven. I have a pet peeve of when people state that something is monogrammed when it is really embroidered with one initial and not the monogram.
