Today is my 33rd birthday! I am feeling happiness, contentment, and so blessed to be able to share another year of my life with all of you! Each year on my birthday, I like to post some random facts about myself. This time, I had Jose and my team ask me questions. Because sometimes it’s hard thinking about facts to share about yourself! Especially 33 of them!
What is your full name?
Everyone calls me Liz Marie, but my full name is Elizabeth Marie
What is your Favorite Food?
I love food, but it must have a sauce! If the food doesn’t have a sauce my day might actually be ruined.
What is your Favorite Movie?
What is your least favorite color?
Fries or Onion Rings?
I do love onion rings, but I never allow myself to get onion rings. So that needs to change this year!
If you could only wear one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
I would say jeans and a flowy top. I have to be comfortable but also put together.
What is your biggest pet peeve?
Mouth noises…but only from Jose and the dogs. I could listen to Cope all day
What is your favorite fast food?
Blimpy. This is a national chain, right? If not, it should be!
What is your favorite thing to collect?
Old English Advertising Pots
What is your favorite Antique Find?
The large Apothecary Cabinet in our front room! It honestly feels like my birthday every day when I get to walk down the stairs and see it!
What’s your favorite material?
Linen. It’s very versatile
If you could only bring 5 things with you on a deserted island what would they be?
Hypothetical Questions like this stress me out!
What were you going to name Cope if he wasn’t Cope?
When we first started talking about growing our family, almost 10 years ago, our two favorite names we had were Lincoln and Roman. But I can’t imagine Copeland Beau with any other name, it fits him perfectly!
If you could bring any animal to the farm today, which would it be?
A highland cow…they are so cute!
What is your least favorite house trend?
This may be a little controversial but…painted accent walls
A ticking stipe
The biggest misconception people may have of you
People are always surprised when a cuse word comes out of my mouth. I try really hard not to, but sometimes it just happens!
What embarrasses you the most?
I feel like I’m just generally embarrassed all the time. Maybe mom fails. When someone calls attention to something that I didn’t think was a big deal.
What’s your biggest irrational fear?
Basically the entire plot line of Final Destination
Do you have any regrets?
Now I feel like I regret worrying so much. As I get older I look bad and think “Why did I even worry about that?”
Which celebrity would you want to be your best friend?
That’s so hard! Whoever it is, they need to be down to earth and would be down to hang out in the field all day with the sheep
What is the best present you have ever received?
Winnie! She was my present on my 30th birthday. So that makes Winnie 3 this year!
If you didn’t go into interior design, what could you see yourself doing?
Something in Forensics
Do you have a secret skill?
It’s probably not a skill that I can still do, but I used to be able to run really fast and long. I even hold some records!
What would you rate 10/10?
Harry Potter World!
What do you hope never changes?
Oooo a lot. I would have to say my bond with Cope always stays strong. Also that our marriage stays strong.
What website do you visit most often?
Aside from my own.. probably Dreamy White Lifestyle
What is your favorite way to start the day?
Snuggling in bed with Cope for a little bit before he goes off to school and we start work!
What has been the single best day?
Cope’s adoption day!
What is the best piece of advice you have ever received?
Be present in the moment. Whether I’m at our store, I am dedicating my time solely to the store. If I’m with my family, to try and be present and have family time.
If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time?
Oh, I would do a lot! I was just saying the other day how annoying sleeping is. I would be able to get so much done!
What are you looking forward to in your 33rd year?
A lot! It kind of feels like a fresh start! I want to learn new skills, like learn how to use new power tools.
Thank you to everyone who has reached out and sent birthday wishes today! It has been such a nice, relaxing day with Jose and Cope. Tomorrow I start another trip around the sun! What will year 33 bring? Whatever it is, I can’t wait to bring you all with me!
