About Me Monday – 3 random things you probably didn’t know about me

A few random facts about a Frugality Blogger

Mondays are a weird blogging day for me. If I wasn't a one-man show (changing soon though, so exciting!) and if I had more hours in the day (not changing soon, boooooo…) I would be the type of blogger to write 201 posts in advance and have them neatly organized and scheduled to post for the next 5 years. But I'm not. And I don't. So here I am…each monday, with nothing pertinent lined up (hopefully changing soon too!).

I believe Sundays are sacred and don't work on Sundays, including blogging and even checking work emails (yes, it's tough). So I'm going to use those Mondays that don't have any scheduled posts to tell you a few things about…well…me! Feel free to email me with questions and I'll answer them on those days, otherwise I'll offer you up some random nuggets so we can get to know each other a little better (and hopefully not make you love me any less…haha!). Here goes!…

1. I refuse to drink the last 1/2 inch of a drink.

Consider me Bo from the movie Signs. I'm really picky about my water (as explained in part HERE). Even if I'm the only one to ever drink out of my drink, I still will RARELY EVER finish the whole thing. Water bottle, cup, glass, pitcher, or hose, I will always leave the last bit of drink in there. Why? Not sure, I'm just neurotic. But mostly because I know that's where all the foaties, back wash, and slobber hang out so I want no part of it.

2. I have huge feet.

I wear a solid 11 in women's (and have since I was basically 3 years old…or so it feels like to me…). If that's not bad enough, my feet are bricks. They are heavy, bulky, thick, and wide. Sexy, right? Interestingly enough, I have an easier time finding and fitting into high heels than I do flats, so that's part of the reason why you rarely ever see me without some form of heel on. The good news? If any store carries a 10 or 11, then they are almost always on sale because no one wants them.

3. I not-so-secretly want 12 kids.

Though I've been blessed with the ability to get pregnant pretty easily (so far *knock on wood*) being pregnant isn't the easiest or more pleasant thing in the world for me. If I didn't have to physically be pregnant 12 times, I would for sure want 12 kids. Blame it on the movie Cheaper by the Dozen (the Hilary Duff version, of course…). The loving chaos looks so warm and realistic and charming to me, I would love to have my own football team! And between you and me, I would be fine if it was 11 boys and Priya. #GirlsAreHard. Realistically, my body won't hold out through many more pregnancies…so I'm secretly hoping for quints the next time I get pregnant. 😉

    • It’s a blessing and curse, isn’t it? Blessing for sale-price only, curse for just about everything else.

  1. Jordan, I’m glad you don’t write 201 posts in advance or too many a day because since I just found you like over 2 weeks ago, I’m spending almost every waking moment lol trying to get caught up on ALL your post from the last, how many years, 4? Woah!!! It’s tough!

    • Haha! Well, don’t read back too far, my old posts are an absolute mess. Mostly from my having no idea what I was doing even 2 years ago, and also because when we switched the site over from Blogger to WordPress and launched the new redesign in November it messed up all the old formatting on all my old posts. Doh! Chipping away at cleaning them up, though. Thanks so much for reading!

  2. OMG So glad there is someone else who doesnt finish their drinks. i have always left about a half inch in the bottom of my drinks too, since i was little, dont know why, but it mostly never feels right to drink it, like the liquids too old now or something, would rather make a fresh drink. Of course whenever I knock over my glass/cup (which lets face it, is quite often coz I’m such a clutz), my hubby just shakes his head as all my leftover drink goes everywhere, he cant understand why I cant just drink it! Oh and I also dont drink anything red or purpley colour. No cordial, no wine, no cranberry/blackcurrant, grosses me out #coloursnob

    • Oh honey I feel you! Yes I agree, PAYLESS is a dream! Too bad their prices aren’t nearly as good as they used to be 10 years ago…

  3. The water thing is too funny! I’m the same way and my husband thinks I’m nuts! I also am picky about the flavor of water and when we were house shopping I taste tested the water at every single house! I was determined to not have to buy gallons upon gallons of water and haul it around anymore!

    Also, I love that you don’t do pregnancy so well. Not because you are miserable but because I always feel guilty for feeling so miserable! I have a neighbor who does it so well that it upsets me because I basically struggle doing the basics and she’s spring cleaning, gardening, mowing the lawn, and just in general showing off! lol

    • I hear you about the flavor. I really was happy about the PUR filter thing, so give that a try! As for pregnancy, yeah it’s rough. It’s interesting because people tell me how jealous they are and how they have such a hard time watching my pregnancies because I’m able to keep my weight gain to a reasonable amount. But I always have to tell them that it’s impossible to compare! What I lack in weight-gain I make up in severe sickness, chronic fatigue, horrific varicose veins, a hernia, and 6 dislocated ribs. So the grass is always greener! BUT…the miracle on the tail end is worth every second 🙂

      • Jordan, I would hAve never known!! In your posts (when you were prego) you were always smiling, beyond GLOWING, and had such a wonderful attitude! I wouldn’t of guessed you dealt with chronic fatigue, severe sickness, a hernia, varicose veins , and 6!! Dislocated ribs!!?? Giiirrrl, you are tough!!!! Xoxo

  4. Questions I would love to have answered by you:
    – Favorites: Movies, Books, TV Shows, etc
    – More about your daily routine (maybe an update to the post you did before)
    – What you’ve learned about yourself from marriage / becoming a mother
    – More Pregnancy / New Baby tips
    – The home tour you have promised us! 🙂
    – How you organize any overstock of food in your home

    Love your blog!!!

  5. I just love your posts! I would like to know if you don’t mind answering what religion you are? Just curious it’s no big deal. I believe Sundays are sacred also so I got curious about your faith.
