Oh the five things about me list! I figured it would be fun to do, and maybe give those of you who read this a chance to learn a little more about me.

1.  I have lived in the UK for six years, four in Scotland and two in England.  I love it, but would also love to live somewhere different, like Stockholm, Hong Kong, Vienna, or Berlin.  Maybe someday.

2.  I read all the time.  One of the best parts about living in London was the chance to read on the bus or tube every day, but I still have the habit of reading while I walk, more often than not.  I always have at least one book with me, because you never know when you'll get the chance to pull it out for a few minutes.

3.  When I lived in Scotland, I met several celebrities, including Hugh Grant and Samuel L Jackson.  I have a picture of me with each of them.  But other than that, I haven't really met anyone famous.  (Despite the fact that I'm from America-- people in the UK always assume I've somehow met celebrities there...huh.)

4.  I like painting my nails but I have a hard time resisting the urge to scratch the polish off after about a day.  It's terrible.  But then I guess it means I get to redo my nails, so it could be worse...but it also means I spend a few days looking very dishevelled.  It's also why I rarely get actual manicures.

5.  Even though now isn't really a great time, I'm pretty desperate for a baby.  I talk about it all the time with my husband, and would love to have one while we're still living in England.  We'll see. 


  1. I do the nail scratching thing too. Except it doesn't really chip off, it more peels off.. which is really gross. It's a horrible habit.

    This is so much better than the 25/50 facts. 5 is a lot smaller and easier to explain!

  2. Living in the UK sounds like a wonderful experience.

    Stopping by from the Friday Hop to say hello.
    Have a great weekend!

  3. Fun facts about you! I love that you read while you walk - I used to do that, too, but it's been awhile! I always felt like Belle from "Beauty and the Beast."

    I just found your blog, and I'm so excited to keep reading along!
