Tomorrow is my 2-year blogiversary.  It also happens to be my birthday tomorrow – a milestone birthday at that.  I decided to take this milestone as an opportunity to give you a closer peek at me.

30 Things About Me at 30

  1. Ice cream is my favorite food.
  2. My favorite drinks are a margarita, a Kir Royale or a glass of wine (not together at the same time).
  3. I am a middle child.
  4. I was excited to ditch my maiden name because I hated spelling it for people.  I still have to spell my married name.  P-a-r-k-e-r, it’s not that hard people!
  5. I’ve never played a competitive sport in my life.
  6. I taught myself how to run.
  7. I dropped 5 pant sizes in college.
  8. I’ve lived on the California Coast my entire life and don’t do extreme weather.
  9. I didn’t have a passport until 2007.
  10. Paris is one of my favorite places in the entire universe.
  11. My official favorite place in the universe is anywhere Mr. P is.
  12. I’ve developed a fear of flying over the last few years.
  13. That being said, I’ve traveled over 39,000 miles this year.
  14. I suck at keeping in touch with people.
  15. I love the smell of concrete after it rains.
  16. I dislike the term “football widow” and think ladies can really enjoy football if they gave it a chance.
  17. I interrupt too much.
  18. I love living in a place where I can walk/transit and not have to use my car.
  19. I believe I should never be afraid of something if I can take steps to understand it.
  20. I was the first person in my family to go to college.
  21. I’m a third-generation US Citizen.
  22. My daily commute is about an hour and a half door-to-door and I blog during some of it.
  23. I save the red Skittles for last.
  24. I have a hard time remembering things I learned in school and for my job, but I’m awesome at song lyrics and useless trivia.
  25. I once had to memorize names and faces of 300 people.  Ever since then, I really suck at remembering names.
  26. I’ve had a teddy bear since childhood named Mr. Bear.
  27. I learned to like spicy food and now I’m addicted to it.
  28. Mr. P and I taught ourselves how to cook.
  29. I’m a visual learner.  If you want to explain something complicated to me, get a flow chart.
  30. Finally, I’m understanding at my age what really matters in life and cutting out things that don’t matter.  YOU matter to me, thank you for reading!

Hat tip to Kelly Purkey, who also turned 30 this year and gave me the idea for this post.
