List compiled mostly all by my husband.

Happy Friday!!!

Here’s just a fun post right before we say hello to the weekend!

I think it’s very safe to say that we all have our own little quirks that of course make us incredibly adorable women. 😉

I was thinking of a fun post to write and having just been made fun of for one of my little personality traits, I decided to make a fun list with my hubby about 10 quirks I have.

Quirky meaning a peculiar behavioral habit, something funny and unique to your personality.

Let’s see if we have any in common.

  1. My favorite candy is actually two candies mixed together. Yea, okay this one is a little odd, I admit but it’s also super awesome. I get Skittles and M&Ms, put them both in the same bowl and ta-da, it’s like a surprise every time you eat a handful because you really don’t know which you’re grabbing. And who doesn’t love chocolate and fruity flavors mixed?
  2. Hubby answer: You have to have sauce with everything! Okay, this is true. lol. I am a condiment lover. I don’t really understand the people who can eat any kind of savory foods without some kind of sauce. Where’s my ranch squad at!?!
  3. Hubby answer: You wear hoodies all year long. Okay, what is the deal with people questioning when I wear a hoodie in the summer? lol. I like them okay. I also keep my house extremely cold and I like to be cozy. Am I alone in this?
  4. Hubby answer: If there’s a popular trend, you won’t partake in it until it dies off. LOL, Also true. I can’t really explain this but I guess I just don’t like following the crowd and so if something is really popular at the moment, like a TV series or a fashion trend, I avoid it. It took me years to watch The Office and when the hype was over, I watched it, fell in love with it, and it’s my favorite show. Again, don’t really know why this is a thing with me, it just is.
  5. Hubby answer: You say you LOVE Coffee but what you really love is the creamer. Yea, there’s definitely a 70/30 ratio going on there. 70% creamer, 30% coffee. I love my creamer.
  6. Hubby answer: As bubbly and upbeat as your personality is, you love emo music. Okay, my defensive mode came out on this one. I am a huge fan of My Chemical Romance, they’re my favorite band and have been for YEARS. But that doesn’t mean I like emo music. I also listen to Taylor Swift…so…. 😉
  7. Hubby answer: You’re super weird about the candles you choose. When my husband said this one, I was like “What!?” lol. And then he pointed out how I hate fruit smelling candles and only buy ones that smell like seasons: Hazelnut, Vanilla, Cinnamon, Pumpkin. He got me there.
  8. Hubby answer: You begin decorating for Christmas earlier and earlier every year. #SorryNotSorry
  9. Hubby answer: Therapy for you is rearranging all the furniture. This actually is a thing for me. I’ve done this since I was a little girl. My grandma did it too. It just makes me clear my head and feel really good when it’s all changed up and different.
  10. Hubby answer: You have to fall asleep to noise. So, this comes from me growing up and going to sleep with my dad watching TV in the other room. It made me feel safe knowing that he was still awake while I was drifting off into dream land. I seriously can’t fall asleep if there is silence. These days, I go to sleep with Netflix on in the background.

Okay, well that turned into all of my husband’s answers. I got one in. lol.

So, do we have any in common? What’s quirky about you?


  1. Chelsea Rose | 28th Jul 17

    Ok I’m the same on some of these! 3: i love the ac on and a hoodie! 5: coffee creamer is the best! 6, 8, and 10 are also me! (No shame for my love of Christmas!)

  2. Brittany | 28th Jul 17

    I can’t get behind the mixing skittles and m&ms and I’m always all up in the TV trends, but I do MOST of this stuff. Haha. Especially the sauce with everything, and the LOTS of creamer thing. 😂

  3. Gabby | 28th Jul 17

    I absolutely HAVE ago have the fan on in our bedroom when we go to bed. It’s the noise! My mom tells me she used to vacuum whenever she wanted me to nap because the sound put me to sleep.

  4. Yolanda | 28th Jul 17

    Love this post!!! I have #4 and #10 in common with you. I also have this weird thing about making sure my bed is perfectly made – even in the middle of the night lol Yes, I’m weird and my hubby thinks I’m crazy.

    • Jillian | 28th Jul 17

      haha! That made me laugh out loud. xoxo <3

  5. Leslie Soto | 28th Jul 17

    Yes to sauce with everything. #ranchsquad 70/30 coffee/creamer girl here, too and I definitely don’t get into the tv tends that much either. I did it with Gilmore Girls. Now everyone is like, you should watch This Is Us. I can’t, I just can’t. I don’t know why but i’ll probably catch up with it when it’s been off air for 10 years, too! Ha!!!

    • Jillian | 28th Jul 17

      Oh my goodness Leslie! YES. Everyone is trying to get me to watch “This Is Us” and I say the same thing. “I cant!” hahaha…give me a year or 20 and I’ll start it on my own and probably like it. bahaha!

  6. Rachael | 28th Jul 17

    I’m with you on the trends, but I’m opposite on the Christmas decorating. I wait until a couple weeks before and can’t wait to take it all down. And I can’t stand Christmas music. If my kids start singing Christmas music in the summer, I tell them to stop. Scrooge. 😉

  7. Melissa @ Think About Such Things | 28th Jul 17

    Haha this is so fun, but girl mixing m&ms with skittles is just wrong lol Though I secretly want to try it. And I am also a HUGE condiment or sauce fan as well!

  8. Lisa | 28th Jul 17

    Thank you for the chuckles. I laughed when I read things we had in common and that was many on this list. Love your husband’s answers and know mine would say a lot of the same!

  9. Andrea | 28th Jul 17

    Sadly, we don’t have anything in common – 🙁

  10. Erin | 28th Jul 17

    Ok. We are really soul sisters, Jillian! This is getting creepy! I mean AWESOME! Samesies on every single one except skittles / m&ms but I’m gonna try that now!! Haha! This was such an awesome post and I feel like I know you even better now! Thanks so much for sharing!

    • Jillian | 28th Jul 17

      I love it Erin!!!!! xoxo!!!

  11. Mihaela Echols | 28th Jul 17

    I love rearranging furnature. I used to change it up almost every weekend. I love theses fun facts about you. We are complete opposites. I love coffee smelling candles, have to sleep pitch black and silence, and I’m constantly cold so I have a zip up today in 80 degree weather.

  12. Josephine | 28th Jul 17

    I am wearing a hoodie right now, and I have got to have my sauces. Also, white noise for sleep is a must. Fun Post!

  13. Bethany Jett | 29th Jul 17

    Almost all of them – but not skittles and m&ms. That’s horrifying.

    • Jillian | 29th Jul 17

      bahaha! “Horrifying”

  14. Taylor || The Millennial Sprinkle | 29th Jul 17

    I relate to a few of these! 1. The candle one is TOTALLY a thing. I LOVE peppermint, pumpkin, vanilla, coconut, etc. They smell the best! 2. Christmas!!!!! YESS!!! I countdown before the summer even begins! 3. I sleep with a loud fan on to block out all noise!

    xo, Taylor (

  15. Dealman | 29th Jul 17

    Happy friday, i love the ac on and a hoodie. thanks for sharing.

  16. Alice Mills | 30th Jul 17

    2-7 and 9. I don’t like vanilla, though. I like sea smelling candles but not fruit. I like to over air condition and wear sweaters, lol. Also I am very cheerful and listen to mostly sad music.

  17. Sandra Samoska | 31st Jul 17

    This is great!! I can definitely relate to the furniture one. My poor husband will come home to a totally different living room some days. Also the candles…although I can’t do any food scents. It’s too much of a tease. Like, mmm, someone made cookies, woohoo! Wait! It’s just wax. Not cool.
