five things.


A very happy Monday! The lovely Christin tagged me to join in the "five things" phenomenon, so I'm here to share mine. They may not be mind-blowing, but they're me. My springy, picky-eating, cat-loving, peanut butter-obsessed, small town girl self requests your understanding ;)

1) Growing up in Southern Indiana, I loved everything about fall--the bonfires, the leaves, and everything else that comes with it. After surviving four New England winters, I've decided I'm more of a spring person after all. Fall brings an impending winter, but spring brings s-u-m-m-e-r. I say that's a win.

2) I'm a bonafide cat lady and I'm not afraid to admit it. I like dogs, but I love cats. {cv} and I often comment on how we won the cat lottery with Gus and Mr. Pinky. A lot of people hate cats, but if you met our little men, you might come around to them. They're winners.

3) I adore peanut butter. More specifically, I love JIF Creamy {Reduced Fat} Peanut Butter. One of my biggest fears is that I will have a child with peanut allergies. It's true.

4) My parents only had one child--me! My biggest side effect? My seriously picky eating habits. I'm working on it though--I tried a clementine this weekend ;) That's progress, right?

5) I miss small town life. Though I love how invigorating big cities can be, there is something wonderful about the serenity of a small town. I like knowing my neighbors and feeling like someone has my back. Our future home will be about 30 minutes from the nearest city--and I couldn't be happier.

In true tagging fashion, I am spreading the "five things" fire to AnnaAshleyCarlyJillian, and Natasha--and each to you! If you post about it, be sure to share your post in the comments below :)

Share one thing which popped in your head about yourself! I want to hear! xoxo {av}

  1. I'm terrified I'll have a child who is allergic to everything! It's a selfish fear, sure, but it's true :/

  2. I love dogs AND cats, but I'm a proud cat lady, too! And being from a small town is the best :)

  3. I miss small town life so much too. I find it refreshing that you're a small town girl and love it... most bloggers I read live in the city and love it, and I can find that really alienating!

  5. I hope your child doesn't have peanut allergies either. That would be tragic!

  12. I am with you on small town Indiana (I'm from Madison!), there is just something wonderful about falls there!

    We are peanut butter lovers in our house too and have recently started love almond butter too!

  15. I love, love, love peanut butter! It practically destroys me that a jar of Skippy in France is like €6!

  16. I'm a cat lady too! I can't have a cat in my current apartment building, but I want one anyway! Also, I'm an only child too!! Although, I never thought to blame my extremely picky eating on that. I will have to remember this next time someone picks on me for not eating things that look weird!

  18. Are we the same person? I'm an only child, picky eater (veggies are so gross), my cat's name is Gus (although he frequently goes by Goose), and I live in Boston. Cray!
