10 Things You Don’t Know About Me

So, this is unlike the rest of my posts. I usually tend to stick to family, tips, or lifestyle type things. But, I thought it would be fun to look back on some interesting facts people may not know about me. A little “get to know me” type of post. Some of my closest friends may not even know some of these little facts. So enjoy a little peek into my weirdness.

  1. When I was 10 I was riding my bike and fell off. It landed on my face and chipped my front adult tooth nearly in half. So it’s partially fake.
  2. When I was a teenager I used to go deer hunting every season. I shot my first deer at age 16. I even used to go to hunting camp with all the guys in my family. I am still a country girl at heart, but my hunting days are behind me.
  3. I don’t remember at what age, maybe around 5, I accidentally killed our pet hamster. I forgot that I put her in a shoebox and sat on her. Ironically, her name was pizza. HORRIBLE OKAY! I’m a hamster killer. This still haunts me.
  4. I had my wedding date picked out before I even met Shahbaz. Somehow, we managed to meet, fall in love, and plan everything in the perfect timeline for an 11/11/11 wedding date. MEANT TO BE!
  5. I also had Leilah’s name picked out before I met Shahbaz. I knew if I ever had a girl, that would be her name. Thankfully, Shahbaz loved the name and agreed it would be perfect. And it is!
  6. I have moved 13 times in my life. 4 of those times have been since Shahbaz and I have been married. Hopefully we will stay put for a while! Moving is exhausting! And I love our house we are in now.
  7. I have played the flute, clarinet, piccolo, piano, guitar, and ukulele. I only still play the ukulele (kind of). Mostly La Vie En Rose (from how I met your mother).
  8. I haven’t been to a movie theater in a year and a half. There have been maybe a few movies we have contemplated going to see, but let’s be real…we don’t have the time to go watch a long movie. Plus, they’re a rip off, and I’d rather have a date night where Shahbaz and I can have a conversation!
  9. I wanted to be a Massage Therapist, and the only reason I didn’t pursue it is because of my fear of feet. I cannot stand other people’s feet. The thought of having to touch a strangers feet actually makes me want to cry!
  10. While Shahbaz and I were dating we had a pet cactus that we shared custody of. His name was Herman. I killed him. I’m also a cactus killer.


There you have it. It was actually pretty fun to reminisce a little about my past and some childhood memories. Minus poor Pizza.

What are some interesting, shocking, or unlikely things that not many people know about you?

With Love,Britt

  1. LOL, oh man, I’m sorry for the angst over the killed things… but this was pretty funny and really adorable. πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing so many fun facts about yourself! It’s so fun to get to know you a little better!

    Let’s see, a few interesting things about me… I used to take Irish Step dance lessons, I grew up on 16 acres of land out in the sticks, I’ve moved probably over 40 times in my life, and that spans the nation… I was born in Idaho and eventually ended up in Pennsylvania. Oddly enough, my great-grandmother was PA Dutch, so it rather fits. πŸ™‚
