First & foremost I want to say a BIG BIG Thank You to all the amazing women who have been following along for quite some time.  The kind words you leave as comments always touch my heart!
  I can't thank you enough, so saying thank you 18 times in the first paragraph of a post will have to do.
And hello to all the beautiful new faces around here!
More often than not, people choose to read along & rarely ever say hello.  But today, say hello.  I want to get to know you gals & the only way to do that is to share our
deepest, darkest secrets with one another.
But hey, a good "about me" does the body good.
Am I right or am I right?
In order to not totally bore you with the basics, like do I wipe front to back or back to front, I'm going to follow a fun little outline debuted by Dana awhile back. 
And pefect timing, because I was tagged by this cutie patootie earlier this week to play along as well.

5 Things
You'll find in my purse:
My Business Cards.  Hey, a lady is always prepared.
My makeshift survival kit, inclusive of tampons, a nail file & perfume.
A sweet note my Mom wrote me about 5 or 6 years ago.  Been with me everyday since.
Bobby Pins. Because life is not complete without bobby pins.
About 50 receipts.  No joke.  Hello, my name's Anne & I'm a receipt hoarder. 

You'll find in my bedroom:
 My beloved sound machine.  Waves &  a crackling fire.  Heaven on earth on my nightstand. 
Condoms.  Too personal? Nah.
My mouth guard.  I'm a grinder & I know it.
A cup full of water.  I will NOT go to sleep without a fresh glass of water bedside.
Super fun socks. There's just something about wild socks that just make me feel better.
Bizarre.  I know.

I've always wanted to:

Run my own business & be successful at it.
Be a mom.
Wear a bikini.  I've always been a bit too curvy for them, but hey, maybe one of these days.
Be a morning person.  I suck at mornings & always have. 
God Bless Coffee.

I'm currently loving:
My cowboy.

House Hunters. 

I watch an average of 1-2 episodes PER DAY.  Thank the LORD for DVR.

The rekindling of struggling relationships.

Wine.  Always Wine.
The fact that tomorrow is my FRIDAY because Jon & I are taking the real Friday off work to take a little road trip to see Justin Moore in concert!!!
And, in true Anne fashion, it will all be documented on Instagram of course. 
Follow along @annexenos.
Quirks I have:
I hate underwear.
I take my bra off, wash my face & throw on sweats the MINUTE I get home from work.
I cuss.  Alot. 
Not my proudest attribute. I grew up with 2 older brothers, so I had to learn to talk tough at a young age.
I check out my own rack every morning in the mirror before I get in the shower. 
Since having my reduction last May, I still can't believe their mine. 
I rarely answer phone calls in the evening. 
Being in sales, I have to be super accessible.  So by the end of the day I'm SO tired of hearing my own voice the last thing I want to do is hear it some more.

Linking up with this cutie patootie (Shanna).

I love House Hunters! I get all excited when its a Nashville episode. I may have to borrow this post idea. :)

Oh girl my mouth is so bad. I think it's because I have to bottle it in at work.

We have so many similar quirks! Glad I'm not alone! :)

I've always wanted to wear a bikini too and I'm too curvy as well. Bummer.

I don't go anywhere without a full glass of water, especially to bed.

I only answer the phone for three people, ever: my dad, my BFF, and my husband. Everyone else gets a call back.

Sarah said...

Husband gets SO mad at me for having receipts in my purse. I also always have about 75. I also strip to sweats the moment I get home too...its necessary.

Ashley said...

This is sad but I actually started carrying a smaller purse just so I could force myself to get rid of my receipts!

I so need to hop on this 5 train - love learning more about freaking awesome you.
