"When a soul recognises the will of God and shows a readiness to submit to it entirely, then God gives Himself to such a soul and renders it most powerful succour under all circumstances." - Rev. Jean-Pierre de Caussade

Allllll about Jen

Because I know you've been dying to learn 28 random facts about me. 28 because I'm 28. So original, right? Right. Here we go!

1. I always thought God would call me to be a nun. (It didn't happen.)

2. My brain remembers numbers. I still remember birthdays of childhood friends that I don't talk to anymore.

3. Speaking of numbers, I used to read The Babysitters Club book series, and there were over 100 books. My dad used to get a kick out of saying a number and having me say the title of that book from memory.

4. I used to walk around reading books when I was younger. Really. Sadly, I do not read as often as I used to…

5. After being really shy the first 20 years of my life, I suddenly become not shy in college. I don't know why.

6. I have a tendency to say what's on my mind.

7. I'm a twin! No, we don't look alike. No, we're nothing alike. Except our abilities to be frugal and sarcastic. ;)

8. I play the flute. Well, I did. Haven't touched it since 2011, probably. I used to be pretty darn good at it!

9. This is my 4th year teaching CCD at my church parish. 5th graders are interesting.

10. I don't like beer.

11. White wine is my fave adult beverage.

12. I want to adopt a baby one day.

13. My patron saint (chosen for confirmation) is St. Cecilia.

14. I've been keeping a journal since 2003. I think I have almost 20 notebooks/journals.

15. I took dancing for 5 years (age 6-11, I think?). The tomboy in me took over so I quit.

16. Soccer was, is, and always will be my favorite sport.

17. Other sports I participated in as a kid were swimming, softball, track, and cross-country.

18.  I do like tennis too though and wish I had played in high school. (And if Logan asks, I usually beat him when we play. ;))

19. According to this test, I'm ISFJ.

20. My primary temperament is melancholic.

21. Nothing makes me more nervous than to speak in front of a bunch of people. I wish I was good at it…but I'm not. At all.

22. I've never been overseas. But it's not because I don't want to go!

23. I have been to Guatemala though, on a medical mission trip when I was in nursing school. Life-changing.

24. There are some movies that I could watch a hundred times and never get tired of them - Pride & Prejudice (yes, the Kiera Knightley one, don't judge me), Return to Me, and While You Were Sleeping. Ok, so that's actually only a few of them...

25. I have all 8 seasons of House, M.D. on DVD.

26. My favorite cookie is oatmeal chocolate chip. The oatmeal makes it healthy, right?

27. I want to write a book. It's kind of like my lifelong project.

28. Nicknames growing up included: Miss Piggy, Flipper, Lil Bit,  and Big Jen. Oh, memories.

Thank you for indulging me.


  1. Do you really still have those books?! I'm pretty sure we got rid of mine a loooong time ago.

    And yeah...Miss Piggy and Flipper were thanks to my loving family. I can tell you the stories behind them ;)

  2. Miss Piggy, Flipper...what?! How did I not know this!! Andddd my favorite of all on this list - #3. Pretty sure my collection is still in my parents' attic. :)


Leave us some love!
