Did ya know?

So there's this trend going around instagram at this moment.
This whole, post a picture of yourself in any shape or form and list 5 either completely boring or completely random things about yourself that people may or may not have known.
I kinda love it.
I've learned a lotttt about people that probably would have never come up in a conversation. 
The social media is such a strange thing.
People tend to do and say things that you never would have thought all the time.
Again, I kinda love it.
Anyhow, it got me thinking.
Why not do the same on this here blog?
I have a lot of readers that I don't know, at all.
So hey, why not get to know some odd facts about me :)
I chose to think of 25, and a few pictures that really represent who I am...
Andddd action!

1) I was born in Colorado and lived there until second grade. I cried for days and days when we got to California. 
2) I reallllyyy enunciate my "T"s. I get made fun of for it all the time. 
3) When I was in 5th grade I ran for president. I got up on stage dressed like a thug. I rapped my speech, had 2 back up dancers, and a little tape recorder playing a beat. I won.
4) When I was in 7th grade I sat in a bowl full of hot bacon grease. I got 3rd degree burns. It hurt, a lot. I went to the emergency room in a towel. My best friend helped dress the wounds. My parents called me bacon  butt.
5) I have a strange obsession with socks. You can never have too many.
6) I cannot take a compliment to save my life. I get so awkward and weird. It was the worst when Hunter would compliment me and I could not seem to just say thank you. Working on it, I promise.
7) I have always had a passion for cooking and baking. One Christmas, every one of my friends got me something cooking or baking related.
8) I have sprained my ankles six times, but have never broken a bone. Knocking on wood as I type.
9) I HAVE to make a wish at 11:11 everyday. I'll stare at the clock for minutes just waiting to make my wish. For the past 5 years I have made the same 3 wishes. 2 have come true so far, one to go :)
10) I have a ridiculous obsession with shopping. I go a few times a week (I work in a mall) but it really isn't a problem because I NEVER buy anything full price. I'm a bargain hunter for sure.
11) I absolutely LOVE crying. Weird? Maybe. I cry when I'm happy, sad, anxious, stressed, excited, angry, you name it. I visited Hunter while he was in college in November of 2011. At one point we were walking through a park and I started crying... I blamed it on the cold at first but decided to just tell him how happy I felt in that moment and I just couldn't control it. He smiled and wiped my happy tears :)
12) I was a cheerleader in high school. I made varsity as a freshman and was captain my junior and senior year. My dad was sad when I switched from soccer to cheerleading haha.
13) I have been to Europe twice and would seriously LOVE to go back. There's something really special about experiencing different cultures.
14) I have hiked to the base camp of the Matterhorn. Not the one at Disneyland, the one in Switzerland :)
15) I am the second child in a family of five.
16) I am a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I was baptized June 14, 2012 and never looked back :)
17) When I was a sophomore I wanted 10 kids. If my body will let me, I still do.
18) I pass out if you just talk about anything medical related. Its ridiculous. After getting surgery they knew me as "the fainter"
19) I was diagnosed with IBS in November of last year. Anxiety sucks, for lack of a better word.
20) I met Hunter the summer of 2008. The summer of 2009 I was sure I would marry him. We didn't tell each other we loved one another until January 22, 2011. We do things our own sort of way I guess.
21) Since Hunter left on his mission a little over a year ago, I haven't had any desire to date anyone else. Like at all.
22) I have 58 pairs of shoes. I just counted. Yikes. (This is counting boots, heels, sandals, the whole sha bang)
23) I had my first peer pressured kiss (peck) in 6th grade. I went home and cried. I broke up with the guy the next day.
24) I never attended a single high school (drinking) party and am proud of it.
25) I failed my drivers test the first time I took it. I was so mad that I went up in my room and pretended to be sleeping for a few hours. Luckily I passed the second time.

I have an abnormal amount of hair.

I'm a messy eater. I spill. Almost every time I eat. 

I laugh a whole lot. And loud haha.

An accurate description of our high school life. He played football, I cheered him on. We loved it :)
This is the night he told me he loved me. Why? I'm not sure... hahaha
Another pretty accurate display of our relationship. Hahaha he never fails to entertain. 

I work at Jamba Juice, and Jordan does as well! Ohh my friend in me :)

I had a ridiculous amount of school spirit. So much that I tackled a cow. Oops.

I don't like normal pictures. So I take awkward ones.

Braces, for more than half of high school. yuck.

I hope this post isn't ridiculously boring. I had fun doing it though haha.
Learn anything new? I hope so :)

All my love,
Aleigh Joy


  1. Fun learning new stuff about you! I also failed my driver's test the first try, and "went out" with a boy in fifth grade for a day and broke up with him over the guilt of not being 16. Haha.

    1. Haha oh so good to hear I'm not the only one! In both of those things! :)

  2. Loved this post! :) I failed mine too... for running a red light. Oops. I have yet to live it down.
