My Life In Numbers

“Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes, Five hundred twenty-five thousand moments” – Seasons Of Love

Last week miss Carrie inspired this post with hers. Although, she actually added some pretty awesome ecards and I mean, I can’t compete with that.. So I am going to say this is my own spin! I think it is such a great idea. Our lives seem to be so consumed with numbers. Weight, blog followers, twitter followers, number of errands to do, countdowns, days, money, everything comes down to a number. It kind of irritates me, I don’t really like writing down numbers, I think my 5’s look too much like an “S” and my 4’s look like 9’s (maybe that is why I never did exceptional in math class. hmm). But for the fun of it, I am going to take a look at my life.. In numbers.

>> 22, the age I will be this year. It sounds so old to me. How could I be 22? I mean at least I will be able to sing with T.Swift “I don’t know about you… But I’m feeling 22”

>> 15, the age I was when I met Jamie. If only I knew then what a huge part of my life he would become only a short 3 years later.



>> 236, the number of days it has been since I last saw my bestie. I think that means a trip is in order.


>> 52, the average number the bestie and I talk on a daily basis.

>> 3, the number of pictures I usually post to instagram daily.

>> 91, the number of times I tell mr. Smokey Joe I love him in a day


>> 1, the number of Green Monsters I drink in a day

>> 2, the number of Green Monsters I had today

>> 141, the number of posts I have published (after this goes live) since starting this little blog of mine

>> 141, the total number of quotes I have started each blog post with

>> 2, the number of injuries I have obtained from knitting.

>> 1, the number of current knitting injuries I have to deal with (muscle strain in my shoulder)

>> 80, the age I am at heart.

>> 2, the number of tattoos I want. Or one? 2 things done at the same visit side by side.. Does that count as one or two?

>> 27, the length in inches that my hair is when straightened


>>45, the number of NASCAR driver I can name after almost 4 years of being with Jamie. I know, impressive.

>> 1, the number of movies I can recite the entire thing from start to finish.. Matilda.

>> 2, the number of cows I have claimed as my own (and named) on the way to Jamie’s parents house.

>> 5, my favourite number.

>> 86,400, “seconds in a day/ to turn it all around or throw it all away/ we gotta tell them that we love them / while we got the chance to say / gotta live like we’re dying”

Tell me your numbers!
What is the most significant number if your life?

  1. 27 inches of hair? Jealous! And I totally agree – it sounds like it’s time for you to take a trip to see your best friend! My number today is 0 – I’ve been counting down to Mike starting his new job and today is the day!!!

  2. I’m going to be 22 as well this year.. And I totally thought the same thing about finally being able to fit into a Taylor Swift song hahaha and your hair is gorgeous! I’ve been trying to grow out my hair for over a year and it’s only just now getting to the “long” stage! My number is 13 today ! Meaning 13 days until I fly to vegas!!!! 🙂

  3. lol. i love this!! and smokey joe just gets more and more handsome with every picture i swear. also i did NOT know you were such a dedicated Matilda fan! that was my absolute favorite movie back in the day, that and chitty chitty bang bang, which may or may not still be my favorite move…..

    • Smokey is just so photogenic. I wish I was as good as he was!!!! Matilda, oh my. I love it. I got it for my birthday the year it came out, then watched it multiple times a day for years. Jamie never watched it (or heard of it) – total weirdo! We were babysitting my little cousins who also fell in love with it and Jamie sat there in awe that the 3 of us said every single word of the movie. But you know what they say, the apple doesn’t rot far from the tree
