get to know me!

Hey. 

I'm Jessica.

The title of my blog refers to the constant "Jessica who?" question all of us Jessica's get. 
You can read more about that here.

I guess you came to the "get to know me" page to try to get to know me, huh?
Well, I'm a list person.. so here it goes..

What you will not find on this blog:


  • Recipes. Unless they are incredibly easy. Because I suck in the kitchen.
  • DIY. I don't like to do it myself. Call it spoiled or whatever but if I can pay someone to do it, I will.
  • Crafts. Not into it.
  • Kids. Don't have them and really don't want them anytime soon. Not in a mean way- just sooo not ready for them!
  • Beauty tips and tutorials. This post explains why.

What you will find on this blog:

  • Sarcasm. I tend to have a dry sense of humor in real life. I try to avoid it (when possible) on the blog because I'm always worried that someone will take me seriously. But here you go..I warned you.
  • Me pretending to know a whole lot about fashion. The truth is: I don't. But I really like it (or maybe I just like shopping?) and I like to pretend. So humor me!
  • Pictures. I'm kind of obsessed with taking pictures. My friends literally don't bring their camera out if they know I'm coming. They know I've got them covered.
  • A friend. Seriously. I love meeting new people and I'd love to get to know you!
Random facts:
  • I make lists for everything. Can you tell?
  • I'm a born 'n raised Texan. And proud of it!
  • I lived in NYC for a short time.
  • I currently live in Hawaii.
  • I'm convinced Duke is a human.
  • I hate cooking and I'm really bad at it.
  • I really love food. A lot.
  • I'm deathly afraid of bugs. Or any small thing that moves.
  • Cartoons freak me out.
  • I curse like a sailor.
  • I have a serious addiction to coffee.
  • I'm a hoarder of candles, body sprays, and perfumes.
  • I'm loyal to a fault.
  • I'm a football fanatic.
  • I'm a huge Steelers fan, and I love my Texans.
  • My little brother is my biggest fan.
  • I was baptized in the Nile River.
  • I'm a grammar freak. If you ever see a mistake on my blog- please tell me!
  • I love traveling more than I love a lot of things.
  • It's easy for me to fall in love with people and places.

As a matter of fact, I already love you.
Thank you for reading. I hope you come back from time to time and say hello!

"I love being girly but I suck at most girly things. I suck at shopping because I'm so indecisive. I suck at hair which is why you'll always see me with my hair down (I don't even own a blow dryer) and I've had the same hairstyle and color for the majority of my life. I suck at beauty/ makeup... I wear very little makeup and use very little (if any) products mostly because I have know idea what to use. The problem isn't that I'm picky.. It's that I love everything! Which means I just end up with a bunch of crap. I usually end up buying things that are in a pretty bottle."


You put the wrong "No"

:)

Lovely blog by the way.

Jess @ Blonde Meets World said...

Hey-o from a new "Jessica". I stumbled across your blog thanks to "The Messy Project" but knew I had to follow once I read your Jessica Who? post! Hah. LOVE IT!

Luckily for me, city hall messed up my birth certificate. My name middle name was supposed to be Marie but they made a mistake and spelled it Maire (with an accent but I have no idea how to do that on here) - but my parents ended up loving it and leaving it like that!

Lauren said...

We have so much in common it seems, except for the whole cooking thing! :) I think this will be a fun read! Can't wait to follow along!

Kari @ All My Good Intentions said...

I found your page from Erin over at Living In Yellow! I love what I see! Can't wait to get to know you!

I'm a sarcastic beauty addict, too! And I have a soulmate named Jared (my son). I love finding kindred spirits.

I tend to struggle with the sarcasm thing because it comes out in my blog from time to time and I wonder if people will get it...but it's also part of what makes me, well, ME.

I just stumbled upon your blog. It's lovely!

Lindsay Tolar said...

Found you from the instagram hop! I love your about me section, we have some similarities. I love lists too!

Hi, Jessica! I found you on the "Texans in Hawaii" link-up. I just moved to Oahu from Texas a month ago and I miss home dearly. Great to see other Texans here, even if it's just in the blogosphere :)

Tanvi said...

I think we are going to get along quite well! :)

You had me at "DIY. I don't like to do it myself. Call it spoiled or whatever but if I can pay someone to do it, I will." -- I love looking and pinning a million of those ideas ...but honestly, I will most likely never do it myself! Witty, I love it, I will be sure to read more from here on :)

Michael Z said...

I am so excited to be a new follower! I make a list for everything as well. And I'm not a DIY-er because, well, I suck at it. I noticed your husband is a Cowboys fan. Although I don't approve AT ALL!, I can't say a word - so is my boyfriend. =](Let's go GIANTS!)

Again, so excited to read your blog!

Karie Holman said...

JessRaquel said...

Jessica Who, you hit the nail right on the head. I've heard that question so many times and instantly got it. How could I not follow you now?

kbgirl said...

Aw - I'm following from the Valentine's link up... I live in Hawaii too.. Military? Or you guys just decided for a change of pace/scenery!?

Ashley said...

My husband and I eloped too -- after talking on the phone for two months and only knowing each other face to face for 3 days. So I know the comments you probably get from some people. But when you know, you know! I'm a new follower, and looking forward to reading more! : ]

Ida said...

hi! I love your blog. You are me, before kids!! I miss those days. Following you on Twitter as @scggirl. Now I do all the mom stuff you aren't into but that's OK, your blog will be my escape from it!

Faith Bowyer said...

I feel like I know you and we'd be best friends in real life. Sorry if that sounds creepy, haha.

As I was reading your about me page I kept saying 'yep, this is me' the entire way through.

I look forward to reading more of your posts :)

Angela said...

I love how your personality comes through in your blog...blogs are so much more interesting that way lol

Melissa @ 53Blonde said...

The picture thing - yes. Second that. My friends do the exact same thing, because they know that not only will I take and distribute the photos, but that I also don't post them if they aren't appropriate. Boom :)
