Remember my I Bet You Didn’t Know posts? If you missed them, here are the three I’ve written so far:

I love these kinds of posts because I get to share some fun things with you guys, so with further ado, here’s the next edition of I Bet You Didn’t Know!

I bet you didn’t know”¦

I played the flute from the time I was in 4th grade until the first trimester of my freshman year of college. I actually told my flute story on CNC once in the past, but long story short, I enjoyed drinking beer more than playing the flute.

In the summer of 2003, a psychic at Old Orchard Beach in Maine told me I’d marry someone from my past and reconnect with them that November. My second first date with Mal was on November 28, 2003. Creepy-crazy, right?

I’m weirdly obsessed with short nails. As soon as mine start to grow, I immediately cut them off. I just don’t like the feel of long nails.


I’ve never mowed the lawn. Growing up, my grandfather always mowed the lawn at our house and now Mal takes care of it. I know, I should be ashamed.

In addition to my sister, who you’ve seen on CNC a number of times in the past, I also have a step-sister, half-sister, and a half-brother. Growing up, they lived with my dad, so my sister and I only saw them on the weekends and holidays. Now, they’re all grown up and have their own kids, but we haven’t kept in touch much over the years.

I finally have my kitchen back in order, so I whipped up My Favorite Pancake for breakfast this morning. I added a tablespoon of ground flaxseed meal to the batter and then topped my pancake with strawberries and sunflower butter. I also drank an iced coffee with almond-coconut milk.
