30 Things You May Not Know About Me

In honor of my 30th birthday, I thought it would be fun to share a few things about me you may not know so you all can hopefully find me a bit more relatable in this social media jungle. Sorry to all of my friends out there who’ve known me forever … you probably already know these.

  1. I do not like chocolate … weird I know.
  2. I’m not a cheesecake fan either.
  3. Anything with fruit or cinnamon … thats my kind of dessert.
  4. And I do love sour candies! Those are my favorite.
  5. I like to speak in accents literally all the time. British is my favorite and Australian is the one I cannot seem to master!
  6. I am a huge animal nerd.
  7. My favorite animal is an Okapi and my favorite group of animals is the ungulates … see I told you, huge nerd.
  8. Spiders scare me to death! But I can’t kill them. If they are in my house I choose to throw a cup over them and scoop them up and throw them out the door.
  9. I really cannot kill any creature. Even if there is a gnat if my car I try to roll the window down so it will fly out.
  10. When I first started college I majored in Zoology because I wanted to be a habitat designer.
  11. I am now a pharmacist, which took an extra 4 years of hard work … but I love my job!
  12. When I was younger I didn’t really watch movies. People are still amazed when I tell them I haven’t seen classic movies like dirty dancing or the breakfast club …oops.
  13. Now that I am actually into watching movies Pixar and Marvel are my favorites.
  14. I have never been a reader, with the exception of the Hunger Games … I think my mind wanders too much. But if I can ever sit myself down long enough to get through the first 3-4 chapters then I can usually make it through a book.
  15. I love to travel … I am currently planning our next Euro Trip, that will hopefully take place this fall.
  16. The places to travel on my bucket list are Iceland, Hungary, Austria, Greece, and New Zealand.
  17. I am beach bum at heart.
  18. My favorite city to visit is Charleston, South Carolina.
  19. If I could move anywhere it would be there.
  20. I am a Christian. My personal relationship with Jesus Christ is the most important part of my life.
  21. My husband and my family come second. Family is hugely important to me and I feel like I have always been very devoted to them.
  22. Eventually I would like to have 3 children. I know I’m getting started late but I have always wanted a big family of my own. My husband isnt completely on board but we’ll get him there. 😉
  23. I am extremely self conscious, so having pictures made in public is always a struggle. I always end up getting really nervous before we go out but my sweet husband can usually get my confidence back up just enough to go.
  24. J.Crew is my absolute favorite store to shop at, with Nordstrom coming in at a close second.
  25. Blue is my favorite color to wear.
  26. Speaking of blue, I am a die hard UNC Tarheel basketball fan. I watch every game, yell at the TV and I cried when they won the national championship this year.
  27. I love to nap and sleep late. I think I could be a professional napper. Seriously, it is probably my favorite pass time.
  28. I am not a fan of rain. I know it is a necessity of life but I just prefer it to be raining when I am not outside and have no plans to be outside.
  29. Speaking of rain, it rained on my wedding day. When I say rained, I mean it poured and I was absolutely distraught. But our wedding was not ruined, I think the rain made it more romantic.
  30. My life was not over when I turned 30, despite me thinking it would be. We are not guaranteed another day, much less another birthday. So I am choosing to embrace turning 30.

    Happy Birthday Courtney! As I was reading this I just kept thinking “that is so me!”. Especially to numbers 6,7,8 and 23, 24, and 25!
    Okapis are my favorite animal too! So funny 🙂
    I’m so glad we connected through blogging! I hope this next year is wonderful for you!

      Oh my gosh! I cannot believe your favorite animal is an okapi too! I think we were meant to be sisters!
