So you read spookylittlehalloween.com. Maybe you follow the blog accounts on social media. You might even subscribe to the weekly newsletter, Treats Not Tricks.
But do you know the girl behind the blog?
I didn’t think so. Let’s change that.
Hey, I’m Miranda, and I run Spooky Little Halloween. By being on this site already, you obviously know I’m a Halloween lover through and through. I mean, you don’t just start up a year-round hobby blog all about a holiday if you don’t love it to your core, right?
Here’s a few of my fave things about Halloween season:
- carving jack-o-lanterns
- dressing up in costumes
- creating killer Halloween-themed playlists
- planning and hosting my annual party, Halloweenie Roast
(While we’re at it, you can also check out the four things that make me the worst Halloween fan ever. Please read and laugh.)
You can read more about me, why I love Halloween and my background on my about page, but today I wanted to take a step away from Halloween and share some totally random facts to help you get to know me a little better!
Here are 10 random facts about me:
1. I’m an iced coffee addict
Hazelnut, vanilla, lavender, black, cold brew…I love it all. Even when it’s 40 degrees, aka “winter” here in Texas, you’ll find me sipping my morning joe iced down.
2. My closet would be empty without…
A black dress. Actually, more like 10 black dresses. Appropriate for a Halloween blogger, no? It is the uniform I feel most comfortable in. I change them up based on the season with accessories, shoes and cardigans, but I would be lost without at least one in my closet.
3. My Target hot spot is the beauty dept. clearance shelf
I have to walk by it every time I shop just in case I find a gem or two, like several bottles of my favorite shampoo and conditioner for half price. (Scored those two weekends ago!)
4. The one book I could read for the rest of my life is…
“Perks of Being a Wallflower” by Stephen Chbosky. It is an absolutely perfect coming of age story for my generation, and I’ve never met a protagonist as endearing as Charlie. I adore him.
5. I’ve seen my favorite band 40 times in 11 cities across 6 states
That’s over the course of the past 20 years, with most of those adventures taking place from 2003 -2013. What band? Probably not one you’d expect from a Halloween lover. For that info, you’ll have to bribe me with a Halloween goodie. 😉
6. My dance-around-in-my-underwear song is…
“Firework” by Katy Perry. Or really anything by Katy Perry. This act most often happens in the morning as I’m getting ready for work.
7. I’ve spent 3,000+ hours of my life watching Gilmore Girls*
Just to put into perspective how many hours that equals: if you work 40 hours per week for 52 weeks a year…that’s only 2,080 hours. I love the humor and wit, and I identify with the family dynamics. It’s my favorite show ever.
And because I know you fellow Gillies will ask…I loved “A Year in the Life” right down to those final four words. I could not think of a more perfect ending for the Gilmore’s story. (We can discuss it in the comments.)
*This is not a hyperbolic statement. I have literally watched the entire series, start to finish, somewhere between 25-30 times since it debuted in 2000.
8. But my guilty pleasure TV show is…
The Real Housewives of Anywhere. Yup. I watch ’em all – no apologies. I’d like to argue I find grown women screaming at each other over things like game night or dinner party seating assignments intriguing because I’ve always been interested in how people communicate and interact…but it just sounds like a lot of BS, right? Everyone needs one mindless TV show. The Housewives are mine. The end.
9. I understand people better when I know their zodiac sign
How they act and what they say makes so much more sense if I know they’re a Capricorn, not a Gemini, and so on. I know astrology isn’t the definitive system for personality traits, but I find it’s a very helpful starting point. (For the record, I’m a Taurus.)
10. Three random things in my Netflix queue right now:
- “Alice Through the Looking Glass” – A recent Tim Burton film I’m excited to watch, despite the lackluster reviews
- “The Originals” – I’m a sucker for TV shows set in Louisiana. I love their gothic feel. (But I haven’t seen any of “The Vampire Diaries”.)
- “The Shining” – Because I’ve never seen it. I KNOW. I KNOW. (I righted this wrong March 10, 2017!)
So there you go – 10 totally random things about the girl behind SLH.
What one random thing do you want to know about me still?
Leave a question in the comments, and I’ll answer it. (Or tell me how much you love Gilmore Girls too so we can discuss the ending.)
