5 random things

last month, i did my first 5 random things post & had a lot of fun coming up with what i wanted to share! i love reading random facts about other bloggers - things that wouldn't come up in a normal blog post! coming up with these posts actually help me learn more about myself in the process! so i may do these posts every so often from now on!


o1 the only makeup i wear is mascara, blush, & chapstick. sometimes, i will wear eyeliner but that is reserved for special occasions. i stopped wearing foundation years ago & i don't think i will ever go back! i don't have perfect skin by any means, but my skin has cleared up so much since i stopped wearing foundation! (plus my budget really likes the extra money!)

o2 Thomas & i don't have cable. he didn't have it while we were dating & we haven't had it since we've been married. that is probably one of the best decisions we made going into marriage!

o3 i prefer paper towels over automatic hand dryers any day of the week.

o4 i work in the same office as my dad. when i first started working here i was known as "Steve's daughter" - but now that i'm married and have a different last name, not many newer people know that we're related. we work in different departments so we don't really see each other that often.

o5 i have fun writing a blog & sharing my life through this place... but i much prefer reading blogs. in fact, if you're wondering which blogs i read frequently, click here!


tell me something random about you!

  1. I love random fact posts!


    I whole heartedly agree on paper towels verses air hand dryers. It also drives me nuts when they only have air dryers with a sign that 'saves the tress'.


    I think that is really fun that you work in the same office as your Dad. Even if you don't see him that much it's nice to know you could see him when you wanted.

  2. I am such a sucker for random facts! we don't have cable either. SO much money. and my in laws have cable so we can use their on-line log in to watch certain things. Like HGTV. haha

  3. That's so cool that you work in the same office as your dad! I interned at my dad's company one summer in college and it was so much fun to know that he was just down the hall. Would love to have that as an ongoing job situation! :)
    PS - I love these random facts!

  4. I'm the same with paper towels, I hate those hand dryers! They never go on for long enough and/or they don't work!

  5. Those air dryers are awful for germs - they blow them around. Seriously - I want everyone to use hand towels!

  6. You are living the dream going foundation free - love that.

  7. I hardly ever wear foundation too. It's just a pain to have to match my skin tone to the foundation-- and you're right, my skin has cleared up some since I stopped wearing it.

  8. How fun that you work in the same office as your dad!!! :) Way back in high school I worked in the same office as my best friend's dad (who was basically my second dad) and it was awesome! I too never wear foundation! I used to go all out and decorate my face, but now if I wear make up, it's mascara, blush, chapstick, and occasionally eyeliner and or eye shadow - but only neutral colors :)

  9. I love these facts--and all I wear is mascara and Chapstick too (altho on tired days I put cover-up on under my eyes!). And that no cable thing: you go girl. #inthesameboatnow :)

  10. We don't have cable either! No need to spend all that extra money. And I barely wear makeup either. Only when I feel like spending the time, which isn't often.

  11. I don't wear much make up (compared to some other women) just mascara, lip gloss, and normally black eyeshadow liner. (sometimes other eyeshadow.
    we don't have cable either (yay netflix and hulu!)
    woohoo paper towels! i agree
    and yayyy blogs... don't stop writing though, i love it!

    ReplyDelete
  14. yeah it is really neat! sometimes we go out to lunch which is fun!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. i know!!! i do like the crazy fast hand dryers a lot better... they at least work... but i will still choose a paper towel if they're available! :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. for real! i never even though about that... but you're right! 1 more point for the paper towel team!

    ReplyDelete
  17. haha! thanks Elizabeth! i must say i'll never go back!

    ReplyDelete
  18. i know! i'm so pale that even the super light stuff never fit me right anyways! but i love having healthy skin that can breathe!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. that is super fun that you got to work with your second dad! :) i am with you on the neutral colors!!! i didn't wear blush until a few years ago... but i love the subtle color on my cheeks so i kept that! :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. how neat! i never knew so many people did the same thing as me! ha! chapstick rocks!
    how is your no-cable thing going?! i remember you getting rid of it a few months ago!

    ReplyDelete
  21. exactly! #budgetlife!
    haha for real - i never feel like spending the time on anything! i do good to get matching clothes on in the mornings - what else do people want from me??

    ReplyDelete
  22. 1) that is awesome!! i had horrible breakouts in high school so i used to always wear foundation but hardly anything else! but my skin feels SO healthy now that it can breathe :)


    2) haha! we have a VCR so we get VHS tapes for $1 at thrift stores & we have a few tv seasons that we will watch. but honestly i'd rather read most of the time!


    3) yes!!!


    4) everyone always thinks we see each other all the time! but we're both so busy that we only see each other once a day, if at all!


    5) thank you! :) you should definitely do a random things post!!!

  23. i think when you grow up & start working and have limited time... the makeup thing kinda goes away! cause if i have the choice of sleeping in for 10 extra minutes rather than put makeup on... i'm gonna take the sleep every time!


    thanks for your encouragement! :)

  24. So jealous of #1 - my skin makes foundation so necessary

    ReplyDelete
  25. Good memory! It's going well, but we (like so many of these lovely conmenters, and by the way, it's so impressive how you respond to all of us!) have resorted to other things...like netflix. We're both so tired at the end of the day! Altho playing with the dog outside & going for walks has been nice, since the tv is on less!

    ReplyDelete
  26. aww. it is so crazy how different skin types demand different things!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. yeah! that is neat! :) we have so many random tv shows/movies accumulated we normally watch those or ETV. we've talked about getting netflix for the tv shows though!


    p.s. thank you! it's a pet peeve of mine to find a comment unanswered lol
