11 random things about me…

1.) I like to sleep in the pitch black dark. If there is light in the room it’s all I can focus on and I can’t sleep!

2.) I crack my knuckles. I know, terrible habit. Fingers, toes, ankles, back…you name it!

3.) I am afraid of heights. I will never sky dive, bungee jump, or anything of the sort

4.) Sweet tea is my guilty pleasure

5.) When I get nervous, I clean.

6.) I am obsessed with making Shutterfly photobooks. I never print pictures…always Shutterfly.

7.) My cell phone is always attached to my hand. Because of the nature of my work, I need constant e-mail and phone access

8.) I am not spontaneous. I wish I was.

9.) When I was 5 I took ballet. I was not very good.

10.) My first car was a lime green new beetle that I drove for 6 years.

11.) My senior year of high school I was district MVP for volleyball, 1st team all district for basketball, and female athlete of the year for my school.

Questions for me:

1) What is one childhood secret you never told your mother? Well I wouldn’t have told her but she found out. When I was 5 or so I didn’t want to eat my peas so I hid them in my mom’s Bible and then when she was singing in the choir, she sat down, opened her Bible for the sermon, and all the peas fell out and everyone was staring at her!

2) What is your idea of a romantic date? A tasty dinner, and then going for a walk or sitting outside on the porch just talking. I’m easy to please.

3) Would you rather spend a whole day shopping or cooking? Shopping! I love to bake but don’t think I would enjoy doing it all day.

4) What is your favorite vacation spot? Disneyworld. Are you surprised?

5) If you could eat only 1 kind of food for the rest of your life, what would you eat? Something with cheese in it.

6) What is your dream job? I really do love my jobs! If I wasn’t doing this, I would love to help people plan their weddings and events.

7)If you were to be remembered for one thing, what would you like it to be? That I loved God and loved others.

8)  If you could re-live a day of your life again, which would it be and why? Either my wedding day or pretty much any day of vacation with my husband. We have so much fun together!

9) If you were given a $1000 gift card, where/how would you spend it? Probably Banana Republic or Kirklands.

10) What piece of clothing is a staple in your wardrobe? My running shoes! Oh, you mean “real” clothes? A layering tank. Tops are never long enough.

11)  What is the weirdest food you have eaten? I am a very very picky eater and don’t eat weird foods so I have no idea!


Questions for my friends:

1.) How long should you be engaged before you get married?

2.) Must read book?

Happy hump day! It is clouding up here, supposed to rain later. Boo! I hope it doesn’t rain tomorrow, I was planning on doing my last run before the race then. I am going to do the elliptical today. REALLy trying to force myself to cross train more.  Today was been a different day. My mom and I dropped my puppies off for LONG overdue haircuts, and we got the oil changed in my car and went to lunch and shopping. My babies look SO pretty! It’s fascinating to me how different they look before and after their haircuts! It’s like two different dogs. They are so precious though. Take a look!

Sassy before and after. We call her Eeyore for a reason. She always looks so depressed.

Also, I was honored the other day by Karen as a Stylish Blogger! Also, I was awarded this same award back in January and forgot to blog about it. That one was given by Sher. Thanks so much ladies! Yall are too sweet.


Here are the Rules for the Stylish Award:

-Make this a post and link back to the person who gave the award to you
-Share 7 things about yourself
-Award 5 great bloggers.
-Contact the bloggers to tell them they’ve won!

Ok 7 things about me…

1.) I am deathly afraid of snakes, lizzards and frogs. Even the little ones. You get near me with one, I may karate chop you.

2.) I really struggle with eating veggies. I just don’t like them! I have gotten a lot better than I used to be, but still can’t eat salad!

4.) I met my husband playing against him in a volleyball tournament in college. His team kicked our butts but I still let him take me out on a date.

5.) I require a lot of sleep. I try to get nine hours a night to function properly.

6.) My favorite store is Bed Bath and Beyond. I always say you could close your eyes and buy me anything from there and I would be happy!

7.) I have had mononucleosis, chicken pox, my wisdom teeth out, my tonsils and adnoids out, and had surgery to remove a fibroid, and the swine flu, but have never broken a bone other than possibly a toe in HS playing sports (but we aren’t sure.)

Sorry I am not all that interesting. That’s the best I can do!

There are so many bloggers that deserve this award I can’t just pick 5, so I am picking no one. Smile

QOTD: Any interesting facts about yourself you would like to share with the class?
