25 Things about me

I got tagged on facebook for this, but wasn't quite sure how to do it, so I will just put it on my blog for now.

1. One of my few regrets in life is that I didn't get an hour long massage on the beach in Thailand when it was only 4 dollars! ( we were on a WAY tight budget)

2. I went through a phase for about 6 years where I had to set my alarm to create a math problem. Ex. 6:24 because 6-2 =4 or 8:19 becuase 8+1=9 but this came to a halt when my husband wouldn't keep up with my OCD.

3. Some of my favorite things in life are: waterfalls, swings, and rocking chairs.

4. I went to college when I was 16 and while I would never take it back, I would never let my children do it.

5. The craziest thing I have ever done is sit on a Tiger at a zoo in china and I really wasn't sure if it was tame or not.

6. I have been to the principals office more than any other kid in my family. (at least that I know of)

7. Im really not into movies....I can be watching the most suspensful movie ever and when it has about 20 min left I get bored and go into another room.

8. The first time I ever wore make-up my husband was there (he was 17 at the time) and when I came walking out he said, "wait, somethings different about you....are you trying to impress someone?" I was so embarrassed I didn't wear it again for weeks.

9. I love to eat things frozen and sometimes prefer them that way. Ex. frozen cookies or brownies, frozen frosting, frozen chocolate, frozen cinnamon rolls.

10. Not much in life comes naturally to me...ok pretty much nothing. I have decided that if I want to be good at anything, I have to work my butt off for it.

11. I have a passion for excercising and while that probably wouldn't be your first thought when you saw me, I can spend hours in a gym...I think there is no better feeling than a great workout.

12. I aboslutely LOVE dancing and find it sort of sad that I married a man who hates to dance. ( I am still trying to figure out how to convert him over)

13. I love to swim but hate to go underwater!

14. I have reject ears I guess, because every time I go on a plane they pop so bad that I cry and have to hold my head for probably 20 min when the plane decends or takes off. Then I usually lose hearing in one of my ears for the next 2 or 3 days.

15. My daughter was born 2 days after my birthday. My moms first daughter was born two days before her birthday.

16. I have only been in two "fights" in my life: both of them they were with boys and I both started them....and ended them. (one was in the church when I was 16) sad I know.

17. I can be very blunt and often get into trouble with saying too much. Lucky for me my husband doesn't take offense easily so I can say, "I didn't mean that...let me re-phrase that" and he lets me. (he's the best!)

18. I am a great Journal and letter writer: my problem isn't figuring out what to say, its how to condense it enought to fit on one piece of paper.

19. One of my favorite foods in the world is avocados.

20.I learned to like mustard when I was pregnant. I hated it before then but one day started craving it around 7 months and ate it on everything (sometimes just plain on my finger)

21. I was probably the most shy child you had ever met. I had total stanger anxiety and have vivid memories of me at a young age with people trying to hold me or talk to me and I was scared to death.

22. I have a horrible fear of torture. I can't watch it on t.v. , I can't hear about it, or I can't read about it without freaking out and crying. I have no idea how people can be so mean to each other.

23. When I was 12 years old I was bound and determined that I was going to have 18 kids..... all I can do is laugh at that now.

24. My favorite thing to clean is the tub.

25. When I was a year and a half. My mom said I used to sit in my crib and yell for my dad-I didn't want her. I would eat breakfast with him, then with my siblings when they got up, once again when my mom ate, then another one about an hour later. What an oinker!
