It’s My Birthday – Turning 28

Turning 28!

Growing up when it came down to my birthday I would be that girl who needed a whole a week to celebrate her birthday. When I became a mom at 20 I realized that birthdays weren’t going to be the same anymore because I wasn’t able to do the things I wanted to. I mean I could but I chose not to. My energy goes into my little guys because that’s what matters to me. 

Today I’m turning 28 and I’m really realizing that it’s not about how I celebrate my birthday but being thankful I’m able to see another year. Looking back at my life I’m really happy with the person I am today. 

In honors of turning 28 I wanted to share with you some some fun facts about me that you probably didn’t know. 

  1. I have a ketchup phobia. 
  2. I don’t eat RED meat. Gross. 
  3. I don’t like Turkey. 
  4. I can live off seafood and chicken. 
  5. I love potatoes (hash browns, tater tots, french fries, mashed potatoes, wedges, etc..)
  6. Pizza is life.
  7. I’m afraid of heights.
  8. Fall is my favorite season.
  9. Halloween is my FAVORITE holiday.
  10. I’m very self conscience about my body. 
  11. Love scary movies.
  12. Love love love mac’n cheese. 
  13. I’m chronically anemic (I’ve had numerous blood transfusions because of it).
  14. Never wanted kids, I hated kids but I have two of my own. lol 
  15. Blue is my favorite color. Some people would think pink is my favorite color because I’m girly. Lol 
  16. I’m terrified of CLOWNS!
  17. Dream vacation is definitely Greece. 
  18. I’m originally from New York. 
  19. Trashy reality tv shows are my obsession. 
  20. Chocolate cupcakes with WHIPPED frosting is my weakness.
  21. Tiramisu is my favorite dessert. 
  22. Decorating my place for the holidays (Halloween & Christmas) is my happiness. 
  23. I dropped out of college. 
  24. I graduated at 17!
  25. I have a fear of insects. 
  26. I went to private catholic school from K-5th grade before attending public schools.
  27. I use to dye my hair red. YIKES.
  28. I have an obsession with pretty pens. 

There you have it some fun facts that you probably didn’t know about me. It’s crazy to think that I’m 28 because I don’t feel like I’m 28. Can’t wait to have dinner with my boyfriend and boys tonight. 

In honors of my birthday and hitting over 6k on Instagram, I’ll be giving away a $25 Gift Card to Sephora or Ulta (winners choice).
