25 Random Facts about Me

One of my favorite kinds of Instagram/blog posts to read is when people share random facts about themselves. That’s probably because I’m nosey as heck, but I really do like learning about other people–especially those that I enjoy following on social media. So I thought it would be fun to share 25 random facts about me! Hopefully this helps you get to know me a little better.

25 Random Facts About Me

  1. I grew up in a tiny town in southeastern Colorado. My senior class had less than 30 students and our entire school, K-12, was in the same building.

  3. I’m super competitive and LOVE sports.
  4. I do not like sushi or any kind of fish.
  5. My husband and I had an exchange student from Iraq live with us for two weeks (long before we had kids). It was such a cool experience! We still keep in touch with her today.
  6. Reality tv shows are my favorite–I love Survivor and Big Brother.
  7. When I was a kid, I loved rearranging my room. And I would beg my mom to let me re-arrange our living room!

  9. My husband and I are high school sweethearts.
  10. My mom is my best friend. I love hanging out with my parents.

  12. I have a Masters degree in Public Administration/Nonprofit Management.
  13. My kids are my entire world. I start to cry just thinking about them growing up.
  14. I’m a completely different person than I was three years ago. I’ve grown SO much in my faith and how I look at life, especially in the last year and a half.
  15. My favorite meal is a really good cheeseburger with crunchy fries.
  16. I love craft beer.

  20. My faith is very important to me and growing in my relationship with Jesus is what’s been the most helpful for dealing with my anxiety.
  21. I started my blog in the fall of 2015 with a camera I bought off craigslist. The camera was $300 and I met the seller in a Target parking lot! Now all of my photos are taken with my iPhone.
  22. I never get my nails done at a salon.
  23. I love working in complete silence.
  24. I used to be a huge news junkie, but now I rarely watch it.

    #23 I’m very ADD but when I need to focus I put on classical music and have a cup of tea. It’s the only thing that calms me.

    Sarah Groman said:

    I love that you said your mom is your best friend. That’s one of my main goals in life, to have a close relationship with my children. I grew up without my mom, so sometimes it’s hard to know how to create that relationship. What makes your mom your best friend? What did she do/ what makes her so special to you?

    • 7.5.21
      Sarah said:

      That’s a great question, Sarah. I’d say we are so close because of all our conversations. We talk every day and she is always so great to support me in whatever I have going on–good or bad. She lifts me up when I’m down, encourages me when I’m frustrated, and celebrates with me when I’m excited. She always gives me advice about anything and everything–even if I don’t ask for it. haha!

    Thank you for sharing your life with us your readers. I appreciate your honestly and especially with dealing with anxiety – the Lord totally helped me through those same issues an I’m so much better today than I was – I was dealing with agoraphobia. But God provided someone to help me through it. God is a great provider. Blessings to you and your precious family.

    Brenda said:

    Curious–What ages were you and your husband when you met in high school? Did you date in high school or after? Did you have bumps/break-ups before you married? My daughter doesn’t want to date during high school and wants to focus on her relationship with the Lord. However, she is best friends with a guy and they pray together, have gone to prom together and love serving together–definitely some “like” going on there–though they haven’t talked about it because they want to keep things in the friend zone while in high school (which we as parents appreciate)! Any tips? Things that your parents said/did that helped in your dating journey at a younger age? Thanks!

    • 7.5.21
      Sarah said:

      That’s a great question Brenda! I was 15 and he was 17 when we started dating. We dated about 5 years before we got married–I was the ripe old age of 20! Crazy, right? I’m almost 35 now and he’s still my favorite person to be around. But yes, we did have bumps in the road here and there when we were young and dating. But nothing serious. We both shared a love for the Lord and I think that helped a LOT. Also growing up together like that has made us so close. I love that your daughter wants to focus on her relationship with the Lord while she is in high school–kudos to her!

      As for my parents, they were supportive, but I know they didn’t love the idea of us getting married so young. Looking back now I can totally understand that! I wouldn’t want my baby to get married at 20 either. Eek! But they knew he was a great guy and thankfully it all worked out for the best.

      • 7.6.21
        Brenda said:

        Thanks for responding! That’s awesome that you got married at 20. We have a huge family and a lot of our nieces and nephews get married young. They seem to find people at church or homeschool groups that are mature for their age. I think getting married can be a good thing–limits the time for temptations and getting into things that aren’t great! Love your story. Thanks!

    Oh sweet Sarah! This is one of my FAVORITE posts of yours! I’ve been a long-time reader and truly cannot wait to read your latest posts. Watching you evolve has been incredible and admirable as well. Your willingness to open yourself up to share these little random tidbits is really fun!

    If I may ask, what has helped you with your anxiety? As a Christian, I too believe He makes all things possible, but also struggle with anxiety as well and would love to know what has worked for you. How did your anxiety draw you closer to Him?

    Thank you so much!!
