Today is my 32nd birthday, folks . . . and although it’s not one of those BIG milestone birthdays, I still thought it may be fun to share with you thirty-two things you may NOT know about me :) so here they are in no particular order:
#1. Pie is my favorite dessert.
#2. I’ve been wearing glasses for only five years.
It’s true. Me and D had been dating for about two months and I went in to get my eyes check and WHAM! It turned out that I needed glasses. Just another reason I guess we were meant to be!
#3. I’m from Nebraska.
#4. I covet Beyonce’s booty.
#5. Flamingos are my spirit animal.
We both love bright colors and we are all legs and beak [a.k.a. my large schnoz]!
#6. I have a D.I.Y. bucket list that includes gutting and overhauling a retro teardrop trailer.
#7. I started this blog after my divorce in 2012 as a happiness project.
#8. I own fourteen pairs of glasses.
#9. Baseball is my favorite sport.
#10. I was bullied as a child.
#11. I value being myself and nerdy over being sexy and pretty.
#12. I have two music degrees.
#13. Upholstery was not my first career choice.
#14. I believe that girlfriends make the world go round.
#15. I don’t want kids.
Don’t get me wrong = I like children. I just don’t want the responsibility of raising them. There’s a difference ;)
#16. I could eat sushi twice a week.
#17. The rainbow is my favorite color.
#18. I’m obsessed with copper.
#19. I am a former television host.
That’s right. I worked for a local television affiliate for two years while I finished college.
#20. I think brains should be the new boobs.
#21. Peanut butter is my life blood.
#22. I dream of selling my furniture as functional art pieces in galleries.
#23. I had seven seizures before I was in 1st grade.
My ears weren’t draining properly so I had to get tubes and never had another one since!
#24. I think I was born decades too late.
#25. Frosted Flakes is my favorite cereal.
But I rarely let myself indulged because they are so bad for you and instead eat Honey Nut Cheerios.
#26. I want to be me and no one else.
#27. I don’t like spicy food.
#28. Kate Spade New York is my favorite designer.
#29. I used to be in an improv troupe.
#30. I hate carnations.
#31. My perfect pack would be six dogs.
#32. I want to do a two-week trip to Ireland and Scotland.

I hope you enjoyed this very random list of “Jenna” ;) lol. I’m excited for the year ahead and think 32 is going to be my best one yet! My plan is to say “no” more than “yes” the next 365 days. I guess time will tell. Haha. Now off I go! I’ve got to get ready to go to my girlfriend, Allison Andrew‘s home for a special birthday supper :D have a wonderful rest of your day, y’all!
P.S. – A big thank you to my other girlfriend, Maria Von Losch, for the fun birthday inspiration – she did something similar on her blog for her 45th. Such a fun idea!
