Four Things Fun Facts

Hi, everyone! As I write this, I’m surrounded by moving boxes. We’re down to our last full day in Valpo and are at mile 25 of this packing marathon. 

A few months ago, I saw this Four Things survey on a few blogs. To go along with lighter content for this week, I thought I’d post it here. I want to get to know all of you, my awesome readers, better, so play along in the comments with me! 

Four Random Facts about Me:
1. I can’t stand to watch claymation movies. The animation really creeps me out.

3.  I’ve never had a pedicure or dyed my hair.
4. While we had a small cake for the bride and groom/photos, I baked and decorated all of the cupcakes for our wedding reception. It wasn’t too bad—only about 12 dozen and a bridesmaid and Ryan helped, and it was actually really fun.

    1. Part of the reason I’ve never got one is probably because I’d keep going back 🙂 But I’m also a nail polish addict so I have endless color to do my own nails at home.

  1. SO with you on the anti-claymation. WHO THOUGHT THAT WAS A GOOD IDEA?? It is so super creepy to me. So creepy. ::shivers:: I do protein powder but really only to bake with it–I’m not an all-the-protein-powder type. So it tends to languish.

  2. Wait a sec. Is that peanut butter ON a sweet potato??? I’ve never seen that before… but I want to try it RIGHT NOW. I love your “four things I’m always saying”… mine are similar:

    1. Dixie, NO!
    2. Why? (I annoyingly ask this about everything)
    3. Thomas, can you….
    4. Guess what!

    1. Um, you must try peanut butter on a sweet potato now! It sounds weird but it is so good, especially since the sweet potato melts the peanut butter. Hope you enjoy it! 🙂

  3. Congratulations on the move – it’s so awful packing everything up and getting settled but so nice when it’s all done! Such a lovely pics!
