10 facts you probably didn't know about me

Let me (re) introduce myself. Because some of you are brand spanking new to my blog (Welcome!), and others have been here awhile (Thank you!), I figured it was time to give you a few facts you may not have known about me.

Me and my Grace 

Also it's Friday, and who doesn't love a fun post.. And quick reminder. I will be out of town through Tuesday so maybe follow me on Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat which my user name is thetrishlist
to keep up with my adventures..

Well let’s start with the basics. As you all probably already know, my name is Trish

Now on to the more fun items:

I was born on December 31st. I always hated sharing my birthday with the new year. As a child, everyone was on vacation for the holidays so my party always had to be held earlier in the month. When I became an adult, no one wants to party with you unless you are having the “better” party. I have learned to just go with it and be grateful that I always get the next day off because, hello it’s New Years day. 

Both of my parents are twins. I don’t have children yet, but have been warned I may end up with little twins of my own. Not sure how I feel about that yet. 

I have a Bachelor degree in Marketing, but also decided along the way to get a certificate in interior decorating, makeup artistry, and got certified as an optician (I can make you eyeglasses).  

I really enjoy reviewing products. It must be the marketer in me. A few years ago when I was having financial problems, I lived off of freebies. I applied for everything I could because it would be one less thing I had to figure out how to buy. Now my situation has changed, but I still enjoy the frugal life. I love a good freebie, or sale. 

I have Lymes disease. I was lucky enough to get this under control before it really did some damage to my body. I still have aches in joints that slow me down from time to time, but for the most part I’m healthy and I keep moving. 

I got engaged on my mother’s birthday. She was just as thrilled as I was. I will always remember that day as a happy day because my mom was brought into the world that day and I said yes to marrying my best friend. 

I moved to Los Angeles when I was 21 to intern at an entertainment marketing company. I have some of the best memories from that time in my life and still have long time friends. 

I don’t like to drive in a car as a passenger. It sometimes gives me bad anxiety. I have been known to close my eyes while in the car if I am not driving. This stems from a very bad accident I was in as a passenger. I was the only one injured severely, so I now have trust issues. It’s not you, it’s me. 

I am a huge music nut. I am usually the person people come to ask who sang what song and when it came out. I also have worked a few tours in my time. They were some of the best times of my life. Music keeps me moving. 

I have had the same cell phone number for 15 years. I got my first cell phone my first year of college and have held on to that number ever since. No one else has ever had this number, so when I get a wrong number call (which is VERY rare), it truly is that they mis-dialed. It’s a great feeling. 

I hope you learned something new today. Thank you again for sticking with me! I don't think I mentioned this yet, but at the end of each post I will post a random fact about this page. Keep an eye on them. I am probably going to do a giveaway based on those facts..  

*The Trish List fun fact #3: I don't think I am good writer, but The Trish List is sometimes my favorite place to be. Writing for all of you.
