1. Wearing high heels. I only own 3 pairs (and they’re not even that high, probably only 1.5-2 inches) and 2 of them I haven’t worn in years. Probably time to trash them. I’d rather wear flip flops or Sperry’s any day.
2. Watching movies at home. I’m perfectly fine seeing the occasional movie in the theatre, but I swear as soon as we pop a movie in the DVD player at home, I fall asleep within 15 minutes. It doesn’t even matter if it’s a movie I’ve been wanting to see.
3. Tomatoes. I don’t like ‘em plain with a little salt, mashed up in pasta sauce, or on top of my pizzas. Tomatoes and me are just never going to mesh.
4. Driving. Thank goodness I have a boyfriend who prefers to be the driver rather than the passenger. We’re the perfect match.
5. Running in warm weather. I’ve survived 2 Texas summers now, but I still can’t handle the heat. Give me 20 degrees and snow any day so long as I’ve got my cold-weather running clothes.
6. Clothes shopping. I’ll go shoes or purse shopping any day of the week and I absolutely love shopping for other people, but there’s just something I detest about clothes shopping for myself. I figured as I got older I’d eventually come to like it seeing as my mom and grandma could shop for hours on end, but given that I’m 28 and still hate it, I don’t think that’s going to happen.
7. Drinking alcohol. I’m not opposed to a good beer every now and then (can’t believe I spent my college years drinking Nati Light!), but I’d be perfectly ok giving up alcohol entirely. It makes me feel sluggish and depressed the day after, even if I only have a couple drinks, so it just isn’t worth it to me.
8. Drinking coffee. To be fair, I’ve never actually had coffee, and I’m perfectly ok with that. I figure what’s the point in starting a habit that I know isn’t particularly good for me?
9. The idea of having a wedding. I wasn’t that little girl who dreamed of having a huge wedding and wearing a princess wedding dress. This doesn’t mean I won’t have a wedding, it just means I’d be perfectly fine if it was a little non-traditional.
10. Yardwork. Before August and I moved into our house we had some seriously grand plans for what we were going to do with the yard. Our garden was going to provide all our weekly vegetables and we were determined to get the grass to grow. After almost 6 months there, neither of those things have actually come to fruition. Our summer garden ended up dying because of the oppressive heat and we never got around to planting our fall garden, while the grass still looks as pitiful as ever.
