If you really knew me...

I saw this on this blog today and thought what a fun little ditty to do whilst my wee one takes her power nap :)

We were this happy coming home from Bali to have Starbucks again :)

If you really knew me, you would know:

-I love (LOVE) mocha frappucinos: double blended, affogado shot on top, no whip

-that I invited "my" entire Starbucks to our wedding

-I LOVE my Uggs and tend to like winter more than summer

-why our little girl is named Ruth

-I feel called to be an encourager and one who speaks truth

-I rarely finish books and I rarely read anything other than non-fiction

-we don't have a TV and don't really ever want one

-I love Anne of Green Gables and cried when I found out it wasn't true

-I LOVE Disneyland.  Obsessed. 

-I cry over seeing people with disabilities as well as hearing someones' story about being fatherless

-I really didn't like the birth process. Sorry-not to pop any happy balloons but it wasn't all peaches and cream (and they don't let you eat-could someone please put that very important bit of info on a billboard?!?!?). And I was induced-yuck. I believe it will be different next time. Again: no food.

-I wasn't dying to get married or have kids (needed the right person before it made sense to even desire it)

-my walk with God is not perfect and sometimes it down right lacks faith and obedience

-my desire is to know God and be ALWAYS captivated by His beauty, not my own definition (Or InStyles, Glamour, etc.)

-I cry a lot when I don't sleep much (recent discovery)

-my friends are my comfort zone.  Truly-my heart goes to complete peace when my besties and sister are around

-I have the most amazing parents in the world. And the most amazing in-laws.

-my husband has seven tattoos (and my grandpa Earl told me never to marry a man with tattoos :) He had quite a few and said men like him were trouble)

-my dream place to live is out in the country with sprawling lawns and a view of the sunset

-I love making cookies for people

-I am obsessed with clouds, spinning in circles, and the teacups at Disneyland

-I love spinning in circles and I love clouds that do something

-I never thought I would have a daughter.

-I love Red Robin french fries. LOVE.

-I am not a health nut (hence the frappucinos)

-my husband is way too good for me (in all the best ways)

There you have it.  And yes, if you just say "Anna's drink" at my Starbucks, they will make it for you, too!  They even gave me mine for free today because our little girl is captivating peoples' hearts by the dozens... Good girl.  Good, good girl.

Now if we could just get her to ever sleep. Hmmm.

Love, Anna N


  1. Love this...I'm so bad at thinking of info for these things but it's so fun to read about other people! Making cookies for people is one of my favorite things to do! Do you have a go- to recipe that you always make? I have two and they are both for choc chip. Mmm cookies! Oh and you are adorable. :)

  2. hahaha...1) i laughed out loud at the anne of green gables comment and 2) red robin is not cool here like it is there. i cant wait to have some of those fries soon!

  3. Just found your blog and love it! Your family is adorable!

  4. Actually, Anne of Green Gables is real, but it's a secret, they don't want to let anyone know so they just say she's fictional. ;)


Thanks for stopping by! xoxo, A momma and her baby (babies!)
