Things You Didn't Know About Me

It's been awhile since I've done a "Get to Know Kari" post. If you read the trashy celebrity magazine, Us Weekly, you'll find this very similar to their "25 Things You Didn't Know About Me" feature they run each month for a different "celebrity."


Things You Didn't Know About Me (and maybe some things you did know about me)

  1. I make up songs and special "dances" for random occasions. I have a dance for making par on a golf hole, several songs about my cat, Ed, a Happy Dance, etc.
  2. I usually prefer the company of a good book over interactions with people.
  3. I think everything my cat does is cute. Srsly. He's the cutest thing ever.
  4. I love giving speeches at Toastmasters meetings and competitions.
  5. My favorite stretch of road is the Pennsylvania Turnpike because it feels like race track. I like to pretend I'm a race car driver.
  6. I wish I could see my family more often.
  7. I don't really like green vegetables. I eat them because they're good for my body but I never crave them. Ever.
  8. I correct people's grammar in my head.
  9. I like to leave funny notes for people to find later. I imagine them smiling when they read the notes.
  10. I'm equally comfortable in a fancy dress or in workout clothes.
  11. My parents are the best role models I've ever had.
  12. I could hang out on a beach all day every day and be perfectly content.
  13. I can be bossy. Just ask J or my little brother.
  14. I feel like the most beautiful woman in the world when I stand on stage during competitions.
  15. I'm fascinated by British history and would love to live in London.
  16. J'adore protein bars and Endorush.
  17. I needed to move out of Minnesota in order to grow up and become who I felt I was meant to be.
  18. My guilty obsessions are watching the Bachelor/Bachelorette and any Kardashian show.
  19. I'm impatient by nature. And I get more impatient during prep.
  20. I studied in Spain in college and would like to go back to visit the places I used to frequent when I lived there.
  21. I have my motorcycle license and used to own a bike. I sold it when I moved to Maryland.
  22. I value my true friends more than they'll ever know.
  23. Receiving Tiffany jewelry makes me cry. (in a good way!)
  24. I wanted to be a police officer and even took a gun safety course before realizing that police officers don't cry. And I cry a lot.
  25. Cookies, cupcakes, and cake are the way to my heart.
