You Didn't Know

Just Some Things You Just Didn't Know...

1) Our kitchen renovation was once featured on Apartment Therapy's The Kitchn. Yes, it was one of the most glorious days of my life
2) I have one hitchhiker's thumb and one regular thumb. What does this say about me? I dunno, that I'm confused??
3) The first concert I ever went to was a Rob Zombie and Limp Bizkit show. I was thirteen, and it was uhm.. eye-opening.
4) I am, dun da dun, left handed.. and proud.
5) I once met Snoop Dog at a movie premiere after party. He had an entourage, and we bonded exchanged 3 words at the dessert table. As he walked away he said, "Snoop's Gots To Go", andddd I died a little bit inside.
6) I started my own website where I posted about things I liked when I was 11. It was basically a blog, sometimes I wonder what happened to it?
7) I am most definitely a Southern California girl. I grew up in OC, went to college/grad school in LA, and am now happily living in San Diego.
8) In college, I worked as an academic athletic counselor, e.g. I privately tutored football players. It was also an eye opening experience... and I had to start watching football after this conversation happened
Football Player That Now Actually Plays In The NFL:
Hey Tammy, did you watch me play on Saturday?

Me:
Ya, you were awesome

Football Player:
Oh cool, because I was benched the whole time.

Me:
Ohhh, Oops.
9. Nadav's mom and my mom first met when I was 5 years old. They actually worked together, but we didn't meet until I was 18. I think that's pretty special :)
10. I hit the caterer's PARKED van at my brother's bar mitzvah, big oops. My parents weren't pleased, and I cried the entire day.


Happy Friday My Friends, Happy Happy Friday!

Oh my goodness, I just learned so many awesome things about you. Hitting the catering van? Classic! That one made me lol. I also love how your mom and Nadav's mom worked together. How crazy!

Ash said...

this makes me giggle so much!

when you told me about the snoop thing, oh my goodness... im so glad you shared that here! bahaha

and who is this football player?! what an awesome thing to do- i would have been ALL OVER tutoring future NFL players (or, at least, schmoozing them into giving me tickets and remembering their tutor who helped them through college once they hit the "big time"...)

caitlin said...

haha jealous that you got to meet snoop!

Natalia Lynn said...

Love the snoop comment! And although I live in France now, I am a Cali girl through and through. There is just no place like it!

Joy said...

Seriously #5 and #8....I about died. So funny!!

Cara-Mia said...

And that Snoop story is HILARIOUS. Truly cracked me up.

That is so awesome your mom and Nadav's mom met years ago. I love stories like that. Very special indeed.

Punky J said...

bahahah I had my own site when I was pre teen too! Did you use expages?? I also had a Neo-pet. TMI?

Lauren {Adventures in Flip Flops} said...

Sooo, one time I met Denzel Washington. I was the caterer and he was the celebrity, and he asked me about shrimp. Still one of my favorite stories.

Also, love the story about your brother's Bar Mitzvah. I had the flu for my sister's and everyone ignored my pleas for meds. I ended up developing a bacterial infection also and had to stay home from school for a few days!

Baylee said...

Shannon said...

Loved getting to know you better. And how amazing that your kitchen was featured on Apartment Therapy. I would be beyond thrilled.

I'm a lefty too, and I had the same kind of website when I was 11! It was on geocities. We were destined to be bloggers.

Your Snoop story is awesome. I once danced on stage to Baby Got Back with Sir Mix A Lot... but Snoop is way cooler/more relevant than Sir Mix A Lot!
