10 Day You Challenge- 10 Secrets

I wasn’t even going to post today because I had nothing to talk about other than I need to do laundry, I need conditioner, and I need to remember to email a coworker something. Exciting.

BUT I read Julie’s post about the 10 Day You Challenge and had to join in πŸ™‚

10 Day You Challenge

Please feel free to join in andΒ use my photo (link back to me so I can read your answers πŸ™‚ )! And unfortunately, because Julie doesn’t know where this all started, neither do I. If anyone knows who started this all, let me know so I can give proper credit!

10 Secrets (P.S. some of these are going to be lame)

1. I’m fairly certain I had a crush on Kyle (before we were going out) for longer than he thinks.

2. I only ate frozen peas (not cooked) until probably middle school.

Yep. I hated cooked/warm peas, but give me a bowl of frozen peas and I was a happy camper. #weirdo

3. I am very self-conscious.

I’ve gained more confidence with age, but I still have insecurities (body image, intelligence, athleticism, etc.). “Harmless” comments said to meΒ during my formative years made me insecure. But silver lining- this is why I try not to judge others. You never know how hurtful a silly (in your eyes) remark can be.

4. After reading Harry Potter in elementary school, I secretly wished I would turn into a wizard once I reached a certain age.

5. When I was really young, I used to think that if I meowed at my cat and thought certain thoughts, those thoughts would be translated into “cat” and she would understand me.

No wonder I question my intelligence…

Yeah...I have no idea what you're saying (partially because I'm deaf) but give me the damn bagel

6. One of my goals in life is to have a dog bigger than me.

Dream big. But seriously, I want a huge dog cause they’re adorable. Luckily I don’t even weigh enough to donate blood so this shouldn’t be a huge challenge.

7. I love my job and that I get to help people for a living, but I secretly want to be a stay-at-home mom when my kids are young.

Both of my parents work(ed) full-time, so growing up I was always bummed that my friends got to do things with their parents during the week (most of my friends had 1 parent that didn’t work).

8. My right foot is probably about 1/4 inch bigger than my left foot.

9. I found a gray hair in high school and cried about it.

Yep. You’re already insecure enough in high school, a gray hair doesn’t help matters. But I remember my best friend told me that gray hairs are just like freckles- sometimes some people get them, sometimes some people don’t (until they’re old). Nothing you can do about it, and it shouldn’t matter. It made me feel better. Luckily I grew out of being a teenager and realized if that’s my biggest problem, life is pretty good.

10. I knew Kyle was “the one” after probably less thanΒ a month of dating.

It helped that we were best buds before dating, but something in me just knew that we would end up together. Everything just felt right. It’s a huge risk when you go from BFF’s to dating. I mean, you could potentially lose a best friend if things don’t work out. But it turned out to be the best risk I ever took.

  1. I’m totally stealing this idea..thank you!
    One “secret” about me is that I’m STILL afraid of the dark… yep… at the ripe ole age of 32 I sleep with the TV on… total baby!

    1. Haha yay! Steal away πŸ™‚

      LOL nooo that’s a total rational fear. I’m sort of scared of the dark- basically I’m scared of not being able to see if someone is breaking into my house or if a wild animal is going to hunt me down and eat me alive haha. And when I’m too scared to sleep, I definitely turn the TV on too πŸ™‚

    1. Aww thank you! I completely agree- being friends made everything so easy…except the intial transition where you’re like, “Wait, do we hold hands? Are we supposed to hug? OMG he touched me. Do I have a bugger? What do I wear?” πŸ˜‰

  2. You and Kyle are so cute that I can hardly stand it! That top photo of you guys is so adorable. I think BFFs can definitely make a great relationship. I was friends with my husband for about 5 years before we started dating. πŸ™‚

    The frozen pea thing intrigues me. I might need to pull a bag out of the freezer and try it when I get home.

    One of my feet is also way bigger than the other. πŸ™‚

    1. Aww thanks love, you’re too kind! AWWW another successful couple who were friends first! LOVE IT!

      Okay, you should totally try frozen peas. I still think they’re good. Although, I used to eat broccoli for dessert so IDK if you want to trust my opinion πŸ˜‰

      Haha yess!! I knew I wasn’t the only one πŸ™‚

  3. Amazing inspirational post! I love the second picture of you two together! So romantic!
    Loved your secrets! Thank you for sharing πŸ˜‰

  4. It’s probably the opposite of yours, but my secret is that I already know I could never stay at home with kids, I have no desire to and I don’t think I could do it without an awful lot of resentment. My husband would totally be fine staying home on the other hand.

    1. Haha well that’s awesome that you found your match! It would suck if neither of you wanted to stay at home! But I completely get where you’re coming from. I would only want to stay at home while my kids are young. Once they’re off doin’ their own thing at school, I’d go crazy at home.

  5. Oh my goodness I rarely do these kind of posts, but I LOVED it when I saw Julie’s! Then I realized her 9 loved were EXACTLY what mine would be so I decided to pass it by haha!

    Ok, please do explain about the peas… are they good frozen, I mean should I try them that way? πŸ™‚ haha!

    Oh, and by the way, I don’t know if you know this or not, but I am actually 10.5. When I turn 11 on my next birthday, my letter from Hogwarts IS coming…. πŸ™‚

    1. LOL!

      Okay so I still love frozen peas. No idea why. I say try them, but keep in mind I used to eat broccoli for dessert so I’m not sure what’s up with my taste buds πŸ˜‰

      PAHAHA OMG will you sneak me into Hogwarts??

  6. haha you’re so cute and i love reading more about you. even if you read Harry Potter “in elementary school” and i was definitely in hs at that time… πŸ™‚

  7. OMG. {slowly backs away} {turns around} {looks at you out the corner of my eye} You’re a crazy cat woman! πŸ˜‰
    Have you looked into Irish Wolf Hounds? I see them at the Irish Festival each year and they are like ponies! I’ve always wanted one, but would go broke feeding it!
    Secret…Hmm, I was once going to elope with a penguin, but it didn’t work out. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰
