Today, I am 19!!! And since my blog has been around for exactly 3 months now, I wanted to share 19 random things about me. I asked you guys on Instagram (@wrinkledgrace) to let me know if there were anything you wanted to know! Some of these are questions you asked, and some are just random. I thought this would be fun for y’all to get to know me, whether you know me personally or are a new friend!
one. I take any and every opportunity to eat movie theater popcorn. With raisinets. My absolute favorite
two. My favorite episode of The Office is either The Injury (2.12) or Dinner Party (4.9). I also love Weight Loss: Part 1 (5.1), because how can you not?
three. My middle name is Evans, which was my dad’s mom’s maiden name. She passed away from cancer a month after he was born. I would love to let her name carry on with one of my own kids.
four. I played absolutely zero sports in high school. I tried volleyball for about a month, broke my ankle, and ended up getting surgery. Sports have never been my thing, but I have learned to really feel great about that!!
five. Coconut cream pie is my weakness 🙂
six. I’ve been cooking a lot with my mom the past year or so. It’s so fun and I really love learning new techniques and recipes! And my mom is the best cook on earth, so she’s also the best teacher.
seven. My favorite birthdays so far have been ages 5 and 18.
eight. My whole life, I have hardly cried. I would seriously go months/years without needing to cry. Not even for like.. The Last Song. And now my brain has suddenly flipped a switch, and I cry weekly. Maybe daily. I’m pretty sure my body just saved it up for 18 years and now I’m letting it all out at once.
nine. Red Robin burgers are my favorite restaurant food. By far. But really, it’s all about the fries and campfire sauce.
ten. A few of my biggest passions: my faith, my family, mission work, reading and learning, designing/organizing things in my house, trying ice cream shops in every city
eleven. I absolutely will never watch scary movies. I’m solely a romcom girl.
twelve. I have wanted to be an Interior Designer since I was five years old when we built our family home. I never allowed myself to fully live in this passion until I was several years into high school and felt confident enough to pursue what I loved, rather than what might make the most money. But it was definitely in the back of my mind every time I thought about college or when I moved my bedroom furniture around every month. I’ll be an Interior Architecture student at Chatham University this fall!
thirteen. Everyone in my family has a different nickname for me. Lane. Lanes. Lou. Laney Lou. Laney babes. I love it! Nicknames are so sweet to me.
fourteen. The current location at the top of my bucket list would probably be Greece or Sweden (my homeland). I would also love to visit the Amalfi Coast!
fifteen. Some of y’all might think this is gross, but one of my favorite things about my family is when we eat directly from the ice cream container with a spoon. Or right from a cake with one fork. I hope to continue that little tradition with my own kids some day.
sixteen. I started blogging because I have so many passions/interests and wanted a place to share them. It took me (and my family) probably like 6 months to come up with the perfect name, lol. I will definitely talk about this more later!
seventeen. Everyone at my house stays up late. If people are in bed before midnight, something weird is happening.
eighteen. I have the biggest obsession with the royal family.
nineteen. Though I love my home, I definitely do not want to live in Pittsburgh forever. I would consider pretty much any state to move to, but my family really loves the south.
Thanks so much for reading!! This post is a little bit random, but I’m hoping you can all start to feel like you know me personally 🙂 I was inspired by Lauren Kay Sims for this idea; she is one of my favorites and definitely worth checking out!!
