I Don't Know About You But I'm Feeling 22

I have been waiting to make that joke for a while 😂 I can't believe today is my birthday! I almost forgot this morning because Mila bear woke up at 6 AM with a high fever, and I kind of freaked out and almost took her to the emergency room, but after taking her temperature & taking her to my mom she reassured me it was the same thing Noah had; hay fever! The pollen has been ridiculous lately, and I can feel all of my sinus pressure building up, which is probably why I've felt so off lately (see this post on my Facebook page lol

Anywhooo I feel extremely blessed to be where I'm at this stage in my life. I have surrounded myself with amazingly supportive friends that encourage me to pursue my dreams. I have bigger ones now, and I can only imagine what is to come in the next couple of years! 

Here are 22 things you might not know about me: 
  1. I was born in San Antonio, Texas
  2. I moved to Houston about 10 years ago
  3. I am a 2nd generation Mexican-American
  4. I went to a dual credit High School, meaning I graduated with my associates degree
  5. I went through an emo phase in middle school, died my hair crazy colors, wore only black, and attended my fair share of rock concerts & mosh pits  
  6. I met Jeff, my husband, at my High School prom
  7. I was in the Military for 2 years 
  8. I was told it would be extremely difficult to have children if I had them at all

  10. My favorite colors are shades of pink & blue 
  11. My favorite hair color on me is black but I'm trying to get back to my natural hair color to give my hair a break 
  12. Driving gives me severe anxiety attacks so Jeff pretty much drive's everywhere
  13. Since I haven't worn heels in a while they kill me every time I put them on 
  14. My guilty pleasure when I lived with my grandma was watching Novelas (spanish soap operas) & and eating fresh tortillas 
  15. I don't talk to my biological father at all, because he was never in my life
  16. I was raised by my single mother, my grandma & my tias 
  17. I know what it's like to be picked on so I stick up fiercely for those who haven't found their voice yet
  18. I used to shave my arms because I was embarrassed of my body hair but later learned it was because of my PCOS
  19. I rearrange my furniture every couple of months because I have this need for constant change
  20. I used to be allergic to the grass when I was a kid
  21. The sun/heat gives me giant red & hot splotches on my legs that have embarrassed me for ages 
  22. I always get mistaken for either younger or older for my age because of how I look or how I carry myself!

 Did any of those surprise you? I try my best to be as transparent on my blog as possible, because you really never know what resonates with people. I feel so young, and old at the same time but age really is just a number! Read more on my About page.
