100 Things About Me

Tuesday, June 2, 2009

While perusing through countless blogs the other day, I noticed a few bloggers had taken time to write down things that make them unique, and I wondered if I could think of 100 things about myself... of course I wanted to try it out for myself so here it goes:

1. I was named after 2 people... Natasha (after Natalie Wood, the famous movie actress- her actual name was Natasha) and my middle name is Carol (after my grandmother)
2. I am a perfectionist and like my life to be well-organized
3. I have an addiciton to Starbucks - although now I only let myself get coffee during the week and spoil myself on Sundays with a grande nonfat white chocolate mocha (no whip)
4. I could eat cereal for breakfast, lunch, and dinner - I love it!!
5. Summer is my favorite season.. swimming pools and laying out, eating al fresco at my favorite places, vacations to the beach, AND my birthday- what could be better??
6. I have an obsession with coats AND purses- I have way too many
7. My favorite thing to shop for growing up was school supplies- there is nothing like freshly sharpened pencils and binders to get you excited for school!!
8. I love to paint- I don't get to do it nearly enough, but when I'm stressed out, nothing relaxes me more than letting my creative juices flow
9. I am an only child... and everyone knows I definitely know how to show it =)... I can be a bit selfish at times, but slowly I have learned to share extremely well (tooting my own horn here!)10. My favorite color is green- such a happy color!
11. I keep a quote journal with all my favorite quotes- sort of a diary, but when I write thank-you notes, emails, cards, letters, etc. it's always nice to throw one in for the people I love
12. My mom are like identical twins- people ask me ALL the time if she's my sister... it's kinda scary, we talk alike, act the same, make the same gestures- yes I know, W-E-I-R-D!
13. I don't have one reret in life- I believe everything you do was a reaction to where you were at that point and it molds you into the person you are today
14. I am the most optimistic person you will ever meet- there is ALWAYS light at the end of the tunnel
15. A recent new talent I discovered was calligraphy- I have started doing invitations for my friend's weddings and I find it to be extremely therapeutic- who knew my handwriting could make me extra spending money?? =)
16. I can't wait to own a home- the money I now spend on clothes will sufficiently be put into Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware stock
17. My favorite flowers are tulips and hydrangeas
18. I am a Blackberry-aholic... I used to make fun of these people and I've officially joined the cult- it is the most addictive thing EVER invented
