Birthdays and Blogoversaries

So today is my birthday...

...(and also my parents' wedding anniversary), and tomorrow is my 3-year blogoversary!

I figured I'd share 13 random things about myself, facts that I'm pretty sure I haven't shared before.  Why?  Because I like sharing random facts.

1) When I was a toddler, my bedroom was Winnie-the-Pooh-themed.

2) I want to own a Corgi someday.

3) I've outgrown most Disney Channel shows, but I still love Phineas & Ferb, reruns of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, and reruns of Lizzie McGuire.

4) Although I love the library, I don't think I could ever be a librarian.

5) I've never seen - and have no interest in - Star Wars.

6) I like to pretend my early blog posts don't exist.

7) I've been a Swiftie since 2009-2010.  I can never remember exactly when I started liking Taylor Swift.  I just know it was after Fearless and before Speak Now.  I think it was around spring 2010.

8) Whenever a Justin Bieber song comes on at a dance, I've been known to run out of the room (and people have started to notice and comment).

9) Story time!  When I was little, I asked my mom if we could get a dog.  She told me she was allergic, so I said okay and went back to my room.  A little while later, I came back out and asked if we could get a cat.  She said she was allergic to that, too, so I said okay and went back to my room.  Then I returned and asked if she was allergic to fish.

10) Before last year, I reread books more than I read new books and I was a bit of a book snob.  Thanks to book blogging, I've become a bit more open-minded and read over 175 new (or new-to-me) books.

11) I have the entire upstairs of our house to myself, except for when we have guests.

12) I'm allergic to sweet potatoes, of all things.

13) I someday hope to write a retelling of Emma, because how perfect would that be?

I was planning to do a giveaway for y'all, but unfortunately, funds are a bit tight right now.  Watch for my clearing the shelves giveaway in early August, though!


  1. That is so cool that you were born on your parents' anniversary!

  2. Before I started blogging I reread books all the time and now it's like I don't get a chance to which sucks if it's a series and I forgot stuff about I need to reread it so I can remember what happened. Because of that reason I try to wait until most of the books are out.

    Btw, happy birthday and blogoversary!!!

  3. Your story about wanting a pet made me laugh. That's hilarious! And I'd run out of the room if I heard a Justin Bieber song too. *hi5*
    Happy birthday, happy blogoversery, and happy anniversary to your parents!

  4. Happy birthday! You've got a lot of exciting things happening this week. :) When I was a kid my sisters and I begged my parents for a pet for years. We finally got gold fish at a carnival one year. And then we were allowed to get gerbils. And then FINALLY one day, my Dad decided we could get a dog. Hallelujah. So I definitely understand about the whole begging parents for a pet thing. Lol.

  5. Happy birthday and Blogiversary! Thankfully, my school doesn't play Justin Bieber at dances, but I do the same thing as you for Miley Cyrus. Is your dog now one of those non-allergy type dogs? (At least I'm fairly certain that you have a dog now...)

    1. Nope, he's got ton of fur, lol. Basically, we just keep him out of the bedrooms, and that helps.

  6. Happy birthday, Emma! (And to your blog ;) )
    It's normal; I repel Justin Bieber as well. And I hope you got that fish :P
    PS Love the GIFs!!
