Coffee Date Friday :: 5 Things You May Not Know About Me


Happy Friday, Lovelies!  Our little family got a visit from the germs last week so we’re still trying to re-coop.  Actually, this is the second visit from them and I’m hoping and crossing my fingers that they leave soon and don’t come back for a really long time.  Even the wee one is sick, poor guy!  If I have another baby, remind me to plan around cold season.  Haha, I probably just gave my MIL a mini heart attack.  Just kidding moms!  But no, really.  No fun having a baby during cold season.

Anyway, I’m joining Alissa for Coffee Date Friday today and I’m going to tell you 5 things you may not know about me….dun, dun, duuun…

They make my heart sing

#1 I always have to drink with a straw with the exception of bottled water.  And wine.  And if no straw is available, whatever I’m drinking tastes funny.  I don’t know what it is but it just tastes so much better with a straw.

#2 If I have a goal, like if I want to lose weight, I have to start my goal on a Monday.  It can’t be on a Tuesday or some other day of the week.  It has to be on a Monday.  Don’t ask.  I have no idea why I do that.

#3 Alissa told us about her Hawaiian name so with me also being part Hawaiian and from Hawaii, it sparked a thought about my name.  It’s not even Hawaiian although some people will argue with me that it is.  “Neola” (the youthful one) is actually Greek.  Sounds Hawaiian but it’s not.

#4 Um…I hate massages.  I don’t like people touching me.  I mean, I can handle hugging and handshakes but other than that, I don’t like people touching me.  Hmmm, said the person with three kids…

#5 Oh, my dad adopted me when I was…6? I don’t remember how old I was.  Although we don’t share DNA, he raised and loved me as his own.  He is and always will be my “daddy.”

Good gosh, that was hard.  So there you have it.  5 things you didn’t know about me.  And now you know too much.  Haha!

So, tell me how you have been?  Did you have a great week?  How was your love day?  Wanna tell me 5 things I don’t know about you?  C’mon, spill the beans.

Happy Weekend Eve, friends!
Jenn.

I loved your 5 things and your name totally does sound Hawaiian! I love that. I'm goal oriented too, however, those goals that have to do with weight loss are ones that never seem to move from my couch. haha I need to work on that. So glad you linked up this week.
