I'm the Kind of Woman

I'm the kind of woman who is prefers flip flops to high heels, and can't really walk all that well in the heels I do own.

I'm the kind of woman who doesn't want kids of my own, but would do literally anything for one of my friends' children.

I'm the kind of woman who believes in the "live and let live" philosophy, what works for me doesn't work for everyone else nor should it.

I'm the kind of woman who makes cookies just to eat a scoop or two of the raw dough but could care less about the cookies once they are baked.

I'm the kind of woman who really enjoys classic literature but can't stand to read anything by William Shakespeare.

I'm the kind of woman who writes letters and cards to friends then carries them around for days always forgetting to put stamps on them.

I'm the kind of woman who doesn't believe in black and white, Billy Joel had it right with the Shades of Grey lyrics.

I'm the kind of woman who prefers going to a wide open field in the country to have a bonfire with friends rather than go to a crowded bar in the city.

I'm the kind of woman who thinks that most problems can be solved over a hot cup of coffee with a great friend.

I'm the kind of woman who thinks rainy days are meant for naps, reading, dog cuddles, and watching the Gilmore Girls on DVD, not necessarily in that order.

I'm the kind of woman who is quiet until I get to really know someone, then I will talk their ear off.

I'm the kind of woman who can listen to friends problems but has trouble admitting my own.

I'm the kind of woman who prefers being single to being in a relationship because I like having a lot of "me" time.

I'm the kind of woman who loves my long hair but more often than not has it up in a ponytail, it gets in the way when I wear it down.

I'm the kind of woman who opts to have a few extremely close friendships rater than a huge circle of acquaintances, most of those friendships are life time friendships.

I'm the kind of woman who makes list after list on post-it notes then promptly loses them and can't remember a single thing on the list.

I'm the kind of woman who has a love/hate relationship with my small town, I love the area but hate that as the years go on the opportunities diminish.

I'm the kind of woman who has no problem admitting my deepest feelings on this blog but usually don't want to discuss them with people face to face.

I'm the kind of woman who doesn't have concrete life plans, but rather chooses to just go with the flow seeing where the journey leads me.

(Inspired by this.)

LOVE this! I'm the kind of women who has trouble talking to my friends face-to-face too, but spills it all on the blog.

I'd also MUCH RATHER hang out with friends and drink wine or have a big bonfire then go to some crowded bar! I'm a country girl at heart, I think :-)

This is such a lovely, honest, beautiful post.

I was nodding my head to several these (raw cookie dough, Gilmore Girls, relaxed parties vs. bars) which I'm sure you already knew.

Thanks for sharing these with us; I just loved it =)

Auburn Kat said...

I'm the kind of girl who eats cookie dough AND then eats all the cookies!

I'm the kind of girl that overthinks everything then makes up her mind and goes back to overthinking it again!

Frank said...

I'm the kind of woman who...oh...wait...

EP said...

I absolutely ADORE this. And we are so similar!

I prefer flip flops to heels, too. I totally make cookies to make the cookie dough. And so many problems can be solved by sitting with a friend and catching up over coffee.

Were we seperated at birth? I hate heels and dont believe in shoes.

I hate clubs, just give me a night with all my friends with a few drinks.. or a lot of drinks.

Me time is what I wish for every day

LOVING this. I was likes "Yes! Yes! Of course! Exactly" while reading this. Except for the first one, because everyone knows I was born with a high heel glued to my ankle!

Maxie said...

This was one my favorite posts ever! And clearly, now I know why we are blog friends! =)

Swishy said...

You sound like the kind of woman I would love to go have ice cream with :)

Katie said...

Over half this list I kept thinking "Me too!" This is why we clicked.

I wish I had a dollar for ever letter I wrote and didn't mail. I think it would pay for a semester's worth of tuition. I wish I was joking.

You always have the best things. I like you.

Kyla Roma said...

I love this, I have the same relationship with my "city" (small town, lets be honest!) and would love to have a bonfire with you some day.

I would even make us smores. =)

Kristin said...

I'm the kind of woman who makes brownies for the batter, but never eats the brownies. I SO get it lady!

Katelin said...

i'm the kind of woman who loves being crazy and secretly hopes i'm not being judged for it.

i may have to steal this idea soon :)

Again, as usual, awesome post. I am the same with almost every single one, except the classic literature. I've missed you. Wish we could find some time to catch up.
I do know that I CAN travel in April!!! Taking a road trip to uummm, PA for a beauty bash would be just the trip I need!!!

Jen said...
