My name is Larissa and I am a small-town girl with big-world dreams! To celebrate my twenty-eighth rotation around the sun, I wanted to confess to you twenty-eight things you probably don’t know about me. Can you relate to any of them?
I can tie a cherry stem in a knot in my mouth using only my tongue.
I am afraid of grasshoppers (you just never know where those little stinkers are going to jump!).
I wanted to be a veterinarian when I grew up (I decided to stick with the tile “lover of puppies” instead).
I am obsessed with personality tests (INTJ, Type 6, Beaver over here!).
I am OCD about how to load the dishwasher.
I got my bachelors degree in interior design (Who else was obsessed with HGTV growing up? Remember the show Clean Sweep? That was my jam!).
I hate to shower – yeah, I know it may be gross, but I only wash my hair like every three or four days.
There is definitely a right and wrong way to put a roll of toilet paper on the rack (you should never have to search for the end).
My favorite meal is breakfast.
If you were to cut me open when I die, I will probably be filled with hot chocolate I love it that much.
I’m scared to be a mom.
I only have two genres of music programmed on my car radio: country and christian.
I was not in the popular crowd in high school.
Jeans like to suffocate my overly thick thighs – it’s why I strongly support the yoga pant life.
I’m afraid to try something new unless I know I can’t fail at it.
I eat mac and cheese and hot dogs at least twice a week.
Ben and I were voted best couple in high school only after the original best couple broke up.
I’ve never broken a bone in my body.
I have a Harry Potter sweatshirt that I wear every morning when I wake up in support of my magical house (Gryffindor!)
My dream is to someday have a house with a room dedicated as a library – yes, I am that big of a nerd about books!
I can’t stand long fingernails and cut them at least once a week.
In high school, we had friends come dressed as Ben + Larissa to a Halloween party, that’s how attached we were at the hips (and still are!).
My middle name is Anne.
The one thing I am dying to check off my bucket list is hiking Machu Picchu – and I want to do it with a goat that will carry all my supplies (weird request, I know!).
My favorite color used to be pink, but’s is definitely changed to blue-green.
I am a proud introvert and totally relish in it when Ben is traveling (a.k.a I sit at home, make no plans and read).
When I’m on an airplane my first choice of movies is always Disney/Pixar.
My favorite human in the whole wide world is my hubby, Ben. You probably already knew that, but I figured it didn’t hurt to tell you again.
Yep, that was a pretty weird list of things about me. Let’s be honest, we’re all a little quirky! Can you raise your hand for any of them? Tell me below!
