37 things for 37 years!

How is it that I am 37 today?  Most days I still feel and act like I'm 21!  But 37 it is!   And this being my birthday and all, today I'm back with a round of 37 things for 37 years.  Last year's 36 is.... post was so much fun and so well received (one of my most viewed EVER) I thought I'd continue it with another 37 random facts about me!  It's all the stuff you never wanted to know...

I am so not a morning person....even though these days I'm up at 4 a.m.!

I was more brave as a child....even in my fashion choices!  

Coffee just tastes better with a splash of Rum Chata!

A girl can live on wine and cheese alone.

I am more of a homebody these days.

I love English and History but am terrible at Math.

I'm planner obsessed!

I don't attend Church as much as I should (Sorry Ma!), but am super strong in my faith.

I'm not a card person.
I just refuse to spend $5 or $6 on a card. And most people are not like those ones you see in the Hallmark commercials who save their cards for years and years!
(Thanks though to everyone who sent me a card in the mail for my birthday!)

I'm still bitter that I didn't go to Eric Church's history-making show at the Barclays earlier this year.
(and probably will be for quite some time!)

Reading is one of my favorite things to do!
Wish I did it more...


It's easier to buy things for myself.
When it comes time to buy things for others I'm usually scrambling or cave and give money...way more than I would have spent on a gift!

It was beautiful and I had a great time but I'll probably never visit the DR or travel Delta again!
Find out why here!

Even at 37, I can still enjoy a game of Chutes and Ladders now and then!

Just discovered Left Right Center this year, and am obsessed!

I dream of starting up regular Family Game Nights.
I think 2017 is THE YEAR!!

I hate talking out the garbage and getting the mail.
Where I live both require that I wear a bra while doing it....booooooo!

I love teaching Library and Tech, but some days I miss having my "own" class.

I still don't drive...

I'm a firm believer that Mondays should be optional...

I spend way more money than I should.

Life's so much better dressed down!

Leggings ARE pants, and these days I might wear them every other day!  But I firmly believe your ass must be covered while rockin' them!  :)

The more that gets put on my "plate" the lazier I become.

2017: The year of Pinot Noir.

But I still love my Prosecco!

I can spend an entire Sunday watching Hallmark movies and be totally okay with it!

Restaurant is a word I spell wrong EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. 
(Just right now typing this...SPELL CHECK!)

I might be the technology teacher, but I still google it!

I am on a roll with my Penny-a-Day challenge, but think if I actually sat down and counted all the spare change I have around, it'd already equal $667.95!

I think I'm over Grey's Anatomy

On more then one occasion I've thrown away hundreds of dollars worth of food from my fridge and pantry!

I can't bring myself to cancel the newspaper, so I'm constantly putting it on "vacation hold".

It's been forever since I had to work on my birthday.  It's always been during the Winter Break!

I'm fairly certain I use the phrase "fairly certain" too much.

I will forever be 29....and holding!
Me at 29! ;)


  1. Happy birthday! I was shaking my head at a lot of this including this is the year of Pinot Noir! YES! Pass it over darling!

  2. Love this post and idea of behind it. Hope you have the BEST birthday! xoxo

  3. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Cards are worthless esp for little kids. I just write my nieces names on their wrapped presents. Loved reading this and getting more about you! We are so alike in many ways!

  4. I love this post. Happy Birthday!

  5. Happy Birthday love, yes to 30! NOOOO to 32, you can't be! And I will come and watch Hallmark movies with you! I've been trying to get Mr. to order that channel for me forever now! Love when we get free preview weeks!

  6. Love the kiddo picture of you- super cute! Also- I don't go to Church as much as I should.....but feel I have a strong faith.

  7. I agree with you and Deena - you don't have to go to church every Sunday to have a strong faith! Happy, happy birthday. Always love learning more about you!

  8. Oh I'm so sorry I missed this. My life has been nuts so Happy Belated to the most beautiful Forever 29 year old I know!! xo

  9. I'm so sorry I missed your birthday! Happy belated!! Love this list and can't wait to hang out with you in real life!

  10. I love this post this year just as much as last. Happy (belated) Birthday! I could watch Hallmark movies all Sunday, too, and be okay with it.

  11. What a wonderful post. I would love to copy this idea but 59 things might be too much to ponder. So glad you are still saving pennies. I keep meaning to add that to my sentence a day posts but forget. How in the world are you not a morning person if you are getting up at 4:00 am? And why are you getting up at 4:00 am? What time do you have to be at work? Surely, surely on weekends you sleep later. Tell me so. What time do you go to bed? I just can't imagine. I get up at 4:00 am to go to the bathroom AGAIN and then back to bed. Bless you heart.


Thanks so much for taking the time to post comments! They make me smile so big!
