Several months ago, I started posting #FiveFactsFriday on Instagram the first Friday of every month. Since I get several new followers on Instagram each month, I thought it would be a great way to get to know me. However, my favorite part of Five Facts Friday is reading your facts you leave in the comments or share on your own post. Head on over to my Instagram to see what five facts I shared today, then create your own Five Facts Friday post.
What is Five Facts Friday
Alright, today I am bringing back #fivefactsfriday with 5 facts you may or may not know about me. 1- I didn’t grow up a nature girl, and I actually went tent camping for the first time last November. Since then, we have camped a ton and I have found joy in the silence and simplicity. 2- The first time I realized I could cook was after being married a few months. I forgot taco seasoning at the store and threw ingredients together to make my own. From then on, I have loved experimenting in the kitchen. 3- Even though I am a good cook, I am a terrible baker. I hate following recipes and always mess it up. 4- Throughout school, I made straight As (with the exception of a couple Bs in HS and one in college) and graduated with my Master’s with a 4.0. I really like school and would have loved to get a PhD if I had the money. 5- As much as I love being with people, I get my energy from my alone time. Writing, reading, watching movies, baths, and being a lazy bum is good for the soul. What about you? Share a fun fact about yourself. 💕
The instructions are simple. Post a photo, then share five facts about yourself in the caption. Use the hashtag #FiveFactsFriday to link up and tag me in your post, so I can read it. Encourage your followers to do the same, or they can share a fact in the comments. It’s a fun way to build community.
What to share
The best thing about #FiveFactsFriday is that you can share whatever you want. However, if you are anything like me, it may be hard to come up with what to share. Here are a few ideas:
- Favorite childhood memory
- Best vacation
- Fun family fact
- Biggest pet peeve
- Something that makes you happy
- A guilty pleasure
- Currently (5 things you are currently working on/excited about/doing)
If you came to this post from Instagram, welcome. I have never shared a “currently” post, but thought today would be a great day to do it, so I could sneak in a few more facts.
Watching… Shameless. I would have finished this show by now, but Colton and I are watching it together and only catch a few episodes a week.
Listening to… Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness (Jack’s Mannequin and Something Corporate). Andrew is my favorite current artist, and I get to see him live for the 6th time next Saturday in Denver. Get ready for an Instagram story explosion.
Reading…Soar by Joan Bauer. It’s a YA book that our whole school is reading.
Eating…so much pizza. Next month, I am having another oral surgery, but this one will be a much longer recovery. I am enjoying all the solid foods I can before then, since it will be 6 weeks of liquids and soft foods.
I hope you participate in #FiveFactsFriday! It’s such a fun way to get to know you.
