10 Things My #Relevant10 Roomie Should Know…

It’s true. I already know my Relevant roommate , Carisa from 1+1+1=1, have met her hubby and kids {and she’s met mine}, but there still may be a a few things that she doesn’t know about me.

Or maybe things that even you don’t know about me.

Another of the Relevant attendees, Brooke, has a link-up to post 10 Things That My Relevant Roomie Should Know and I thought since Carisa was kind enough to give me a heads-up about a few things, I should probably do the same for her.

1. I will come bearing my Keurig. Maybe even a coffee cup or two. And creamer. Sadly, we have two of these lovely coffee makers. Coffee on demand is essential.

2. Me on large of amounts of caffeine can be frightening, so you might want to hide the K-cups after awhile.

3. I will also come bearing a white noise machine. I like familiar sounds and don’t want to wonder what is going bump in the night. We’ve slept with one ever since we lived on a fire-truck main road…so it travels with me.

4. I am horrible with names too ~ so Carisa, we’ll have to come up with a secret plan to memorize names while we are there. Or just hide in our room, since I do know your name, this might be the best plan.

5. Pronouncing my name might be tricky. Go ahead ~ try it right now. Jolanthe. Want to know how to say it? Yo-lawn-tha. But you can call me Yo and I won’t even blink twice hearing you say that.

6. I have difficulty focusing on too much at once and have a tendency to veer sharply off course quickly. Carisa already knows this about me and helps me focus, but my attention span can be equivalent to that of a gnat. And I wonder where my kids get it from.

7. I love dark chocolate. Sweetened. That just seemed important to note.

8. I talk a lot. And I can be loud. I also like to laugh. Consider yourself warned.

9. I may or may not talk in my sleep. There is also a slight possibility that I may grind my teeth. I could wear a mouthguard, but seriously ~ would you? I’d then start drooling and that could really lead to some interesting blogging on Carisa’s part, so I think she’ll just have to suffer through. :)

10. I am ever-so-thankful to have Carisa as my roommate ~ and know that she understands the whats/whys behind me. :)

Can’t wait to see you all in a little more than 3 weeks!!!

  1. I never would have guessed that you pronounced your name that way! I've always read it the way that it is spelled.
    I love, LOVE, dark chocolate too. Especially the Dove ones. And the Lindt dark chocolate truffles!
    I hope you both have a great time!

  3. I have been saying your name wrong all this time, so sorry. I hope you have a good time and try not to drink too much coffee. Also maybe everyone will have name tags to help you remember.

  6. You will have so much fun!

    I have been pronouncing your name wrong this whole time. I had no idea! Are you named after someone or is it just something you parents liked?
