7 Facts About Me
Fact # 1: Despite these insane rumors that have been circulating about me, I’ve got a bit of a confession to make. I…CANNOT dance. My baby girl and my sister, however, can move and groove with the best of them. Me, forget about it! I look like a frog with its foot caught in a mouse trap.
Fact # 2: My absolute favorite perfume is Calvin Klein’s Euphoria. It’s clean, subtle, sweet, and musky all at the same time. The perfect combination for me!
Fact # 3: My mama surprised me with a Cricut machine (years ago for my birthday) after I had mentioned during a casual conversation that I would like to have one. I absolutely love my machine, and have used it for a ton of different projects, but I’ve recently found myself longing for a Sizzix machine. The majority of the YouTubers that I watch use theirs for spreads, and they have some of the cutest die cuts! This will be one of my next big investments.
Fact # 4: Despite my many efforts over the years, I have realized that I just was not blessed with a green thumb. I have always wanted a garden filled with my favorite vegetables, but am realizing now that this will most likely never come to pass. I somehow manage to over water every time I try to grow something. Perhaps I’ll just put hubby in charge of the gardening.
Fact # 5: Do you remember this old jingle?
“Comet…It makes your teeth turn green.
Comet…It takes like Listerine.
Comet…It makes you vomit.
So have some comet…and vomit…today.”
When I was a little girl, I remember sitting in the bathroom watching my mama clean the tub. She would sprinkle her green bottle of comet all over the basin of the tub, and would then scrub the entire thing, inside and out. I remember telling her that one day, “I was going to be SO rich, that I wasn’t going to have to USE comet!” I’m surprised she didn’t smack me; I would have! Well, here I am (20 years later) following in her footsteps. I am a proud user of comet (the smell of Ajax reminds me of the concentration camp) and I follow her cleaning “steps” down to a T. I’d be in hog heaven if I could just get to the point financially, where I could hire someone in to do the cleaning; I’ve officially had my fill. But, know this, I will ALWAYS have a bottle of comet in my cleaning closet.
Fact # 6: I decided forever and a day ago, that when I finally had a home with a craft room, that I was going to paint the walls Fire Engine Red. I want vertical stripes that alternate between a matte and a glossy finish, as red entices my creative juices. I also want an “island” in the center of the room with a flat surface on top and a ton of cubby holes and drawers underneath for craft supplies. In addition to that, I want a giant (double door) walk in closet that’s floor to ceiling craft supplies organized in tidy little labeled boxes. I love getting messy with my projects, but at the end of the day, I need a clean and organized area.
Fact # 7: When my mom divorced my first step-dad, we moved into a house without a microwave. Oh, gracious! A teen without a nuke box! Good thing I knew how to cook. At that time, I had an obsession with making a batch of Spaghettios after school, but had never up to that point prepared them on a stove top. But there’s a first time for everything. I threw a can into a pot, sprinkled a nice layer of Tony’s on top and brought it to a boil. Ah! The best bowl of Spaghettios ever! If you’ve never tried it, make it a point…SO good!
So, there you have it. 7 new facts about me, Krista Kemp.
