A few weeks ago my friends got me out of the house…..this is scary for an introvert like me. I like my couch…no let me rephrase that…I love my couch. I don’t know if I have always been like this or if it’s a sudden thing. I am an only child and I am use to being by myself. I hate talking on the phone and I don’t like going to crowded places. When my friends ask me to go somewhere I normally come up with an excuse because telling them I don’t want to go doesn’t work anymore. I tell them I don’t want to be bothered and they think I am kidding…I’m not. So back to going out….I got out of the house last week and attended a charity event for St. Jude hospital at the Kendra Scott store in Alpharetta, GA. It was hosted by my blog buddy Trina who does a fab job of raising awareness for research for the hospital.
Since I was the designated driver we hopped in the new 2017 Mazda CX-5. It was red and I was feeling myself a bit to much that night….something about a red car. Anywhoo, we had to travel from my part of town to Alpharetta, GA which is about an hour drive from me. With the hurricane traffic and the reg Atlanta traffic it was more like 2 hours but whose counting *side eye*. Along the way we had girl talk…..you know the kind where you laugh and talk shat but you also uplift and motivate…it was one of those nights!
When I first entered the Jewelry store I saw so many pretty pieces then I looked at the price. I am not one to spend a lot on jewelry but I invest in some good pieces that go with a lot of stuff every now and then. I ended up buying rose gold earrings. Stay tuned to my instagram to see me wear them. It’s too pretty to sit on my couch with lol. The event was great and I am so glad that I was able to support a good cause.
So there are some myths about me that I want to clear up which in turn can help you understand your introverted friends a bit better
I don’t like to talk – I like talking but only about subjects that interest me. If all you are talking about is fashion, home decor, or DIY then I won’t have anything to say. Talk about a good book or cooking…I will talk for days. I like to talk about what interests me and I hate small talk. Don’t call me to ask me how my day was and just sit on the phone. You can text me for that. Call me and ask a question that pertains to something I am interested in and I will talk your head off
I don’t like people – This is partly true. I like people but I don’t like folks in my business. I can count on one hand my friends and people who are in my business. I don’t like a lot of people so I tend to stick to talking with the few people I know. You can’t trust everyone….I am very careful who I let into my world.
I hate going out in the public eye – Again partly true….it’s not that I hate going out in the public I just hate staying for a long time. I like to go somewhere, look around the room, say hi or make sure the person who invited me sees me, stand in a corner and stare and then leave. That shouldn’t take an hour….I like to stay for 30 min. If it’s more than an hour I get antsy and I feel the need to recharge. I can’t go somewhere and stay for hours and hours it’s way to much for me. I don’t need to be at the event for a long time for me to get the gist of the event. I came, I saw, I bought, I chit chatted, and then I’m out. 30 min tops
I don’t know how to have fun – I like to have fun but not in a crowded space. Don’t ask me to go bowling on a Friday night or a Saturday night because it’s way to crowded in most places and I can’t hear myself think. I get overwhelmed in crowds. I love to go out I just don’t like large crowds. If it’s to much noise or it’s to crowded I shut down. I need a small environment to have fun and when I have that I can let loose
All in all I had a blast that night because it wasn’t crowded and I didn’t feel the need to escape. We went out to eat at a neat sushi place nearby and it wasn’t crowded at all. I felt at peace. If I needed to escape though I had the Mazda CX-5 to jump in. I loved this car. I had a blast showing it off and it was the perfect car for an evening out with the girls.
As an introvert I am thankful to get out with my girls and have some fun laughing. I was able to recharge on my couch later on that night! Are you an introvert? When was the last time you went out with your girls?

I was provided the Mazda CX 5 in exchange with a review. Nothing monetary was given. All opinions are my own!
