Own It--July Linkup

Thursday, July 30, 2015

I'm participating today with Christina at The New Mrs. with her Own It linkup.  I love reading these and decided that today I needed to join!  Basically you just list the crazy different things you do and own them!

I sometimes sleep with a headache pillow over my eyes.  I know it sounds so crazy and Dustin thinks it's weird but if it helps me sleep better, then why not?  I think it all started one time when I had a horrible headache and my mom bought me this white minka-dot lavender headache pillow.  I put it over my eyes to get rid of my headache and had the best sleep ever.  Now sometimes when I wake up in the morning and the sun is starting to rise, I'll put that pillow over my eyes and it puts me in a deep sleep.

I can't sleep unless my top sheet and comforter are evenly lined up.  Yes, this is a little weird and I have no idea where it came from.  Before Dustin and I got married, Janie tried to explain to him this little quirk about me but I don't think he fully understood until we got married.  When Dustin is on nights and he has to sleep during the day, he will make our bed since he's the last one in it.  Sometimes before I go to bed that night, I will have to make some adjustments to the sheet and comforter to make sure they are lined up evenly.  Don't get me wrong, I am so thankful he makes the bed sometimes, but I just have to even things out every once in a while!

Going along with number two, I'm a pretty organized person.  Everything has it's place and should be there.  I straighten things up constantly during the day.  People tell me this will change once I have kids but I doubt it! haha

I love reality TV.  There, I said it ha!  I love watching shows on E! and Bravo.  I know people think it's so weird because I'm an English teacher and I love to read and have intellectual conversations, but reality TV is my guilty pleasure.  It takes no thinking whatsoever to watch a reality show, and I love seeing how people live their lives.

I hate bananas.  I can't stand to smell them, to touch them, and I can't have anything in it with bananas.  As a child, I used to have to make my dad a banana sandwich everyday for his lunch and that contributed to my hatred for bananas.  Then I had an elementary teacher who made me eat a banana that a girl brought at a class snack before I could go to recess.  It's like I suffer PTSD from those two moments.

I wash my hands immediately after I workout.  Whether I'm at the gym or at home, as soon as I finish my workout, I go wash my hands.  I don't think it's more of a germ-phobia at the gym, but I don't like my hands feeling so sweaty and nasty so I wash them when I'm done!

You can bet I washed my hands as soon as I got done working out with my sister!

Thanks for reading this!  It was fun thinking of the little quirks that make me who I am.  Check back tomorrow for Friday Favorites!


  1. I wish I was more like your #3!!! I WANT to be like that! I even bought a book to help! Haha

  2. My mom got me a lavender neck pillow when I was homesick in college but the head pillow looks so refreshing! That’s so funny that the bed has to be perfect!

  3. Totally agree on the organization & reality tv :)

  4. Reality TV is the best! Sometimes there's nothing better than watching a couple of hours of nonsense.
