Its never my intent to go so long in between posts! The days are just flying by!
I saw this idea over at my friend Mara's blog and loved the idea. Plus it only takes a few minutes, and any other post that is in the works, will take longer. So in no particular order of levels of excitement, here are 25 things about me that you may or may not know.
1- I was held up at gunpoint while working at a tanning salon on Valentines Day.
2- I was on a jury for a murder trial when I was 19.
3- I married my husband 16 days after our first date.
4- I keep my house pretty clean- except for my closet. That gets cleaned only once a month.
5- I like building Legos.
6- I hate watching movies where anything too sad happens, even if it ends good. Yep, that really limits my movie choices. I have however seen That Thing You Do, Newsies and The Notebook countless times.
7- I hate jean shopping. Big booty and shortish legs aren't a good combo apparently.
8- 9 times out of 10 I do my makeup in the car on the way to church.
9- I'm super close with my family and talk to at least one of them every day.
10-I didn't do any crafts or projects until about 4 years ago. Now I can't stop.
11- All 4 of my kids were born via c-section.
12- I'm married to a man who cleans without me having to ask him. Who also cooks, and plays adorably with the kids.
13- I'm only 27 and have tons of gray hair. I have to dye it a minimum of once a month.
14- I was on the swim team in 6th grade. I could have gone to the Olympics had I stuck with it. Just ask
my grandma, she told me so.
15- I was in the gifted program as an elementary student, but after I hit puberty my grades were horrible.
16- I've traveled all over Europe- Germany, Italy, London, Paris (and other parts of France), Switzerland, Spain, Holland, Ireland, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Greece, Turkey, Norway, Belgium, Luxembourg, Austria. I also went to Egypt. We want to explore Asia next. And Australia.
17- Monkeys freak me out. I'm especially terrified of gorillas.
18- Every night before bed I have an apple with natural crunchy peanut butter, while me and hubs watch a show. Currently its Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
19- I get sick of stuff real fast. My husband always says he's surprised I'm not sick of him yet. Seriously, I'm always changing stuff around the house, and don't like any of my clothes for very long.
20- I once took my brothers ADD medicine to study for a math test the next day. It worked incredibly and I got the best grade I've ever gotten in math. It was really hard not to take one again.
21- My dream is to have a party planning/catering business with my husband. I would do decorations/entertainment. He would be the caterer. He's a great cook and awesome at the presentation of food. Its cute to watch him make it pretty on the plate, and arrange it just so. Maybe after he retires from this job (he'll only be 44!)
22- We're done having kids, but I don't think I'll ever not miss having a newborn. There's just something about those tiny, fresh, straight from heaven, sleepy bodies!
23- My parents were right after all- I actually do wish I would've stuck with playing the piano. Or guitar. Or volleyball. Or basketball. Or track.
24- I love eating quinoa, as long as I don't look at it while I'm eating it. It grosses me out.
25- Lots of people think I'm Russian.
