Continuing my goal of helping you all to get to know me, I thought I’d do one more of the ongoing Weddingbee series: The Secret Life of Bees. I feel like, in general, I’m a pretty open book, but I do know that there are some things that you all don’t know about me and these may be things that even some of my friends don’t know.
1. I hate touching chalkboards.
Like, whoa. You may notice the complete lack of chalkboard signs at our wedding and the largest reason why is because I can’t stand touching them. Something about the feel of the chalk dust on the chalkboard gets all my nerves on edge. Blech.
2. I love pumpkin beer.
2010, 2011, 2012
Normally I’m a wine girl through and through but I love pumpkin beer. Each year a local brewery hosts a pumpkin beer festival, and Sparky and I have gone each year since I’ve known about it. We’re even going this year the Sunday after we get back from our honeymoon! (If any Seattle bees are going to be at the Pumpkin Beer Fest let me know and I’ll say hi!)
3. When I was little, my outfit of choice was full camo.
You know how kids get into habits where they insist on dressing themselves and then they often repeat the same outfit over and over? Yeah, mine was camo and my brother’s rain boots. Why my parents purchased said outfit for me I can’t really say, but they did and I wore it. Frequently. (My younger sister’s outfit of choice was a star-spangled bikini with equally patriotic flip-flops. This was in winter.)
4. I support the Spanish soccer team.

When it comes to World Cup time, I am all about Spain. My love of this team started in 2006 when I was in Spain during the World Cup (I could hear the entire city cheering when I was in class) and continued into the 2010 World Cup. In fact, by some twist of fate, I managed to catch every Spanish game during the 2010 World Cup series. You better believe I was watching when they won. I will be doing my very best to catch as many games as I can in 2014.
5. I really enjoy finding things that are silly/funny and sharing them.
Paper doll / “Fingerless” gloves / A very specific kind of emergency / Depressing reality?
OK, so this is not a “lesser known fact” for people who are friends with me on Facebook. I really do take pleasure in it, though!
Sometimes I even create the silly things, like this lovely piece of art featuring Sparky:
Now you know five more things about me than you did before. Any interesting facts about you that you’re willing to share?
