100th Post

So here are 25 things you might not know about me. Then again, you might! I thought for this 100th post I'd be able to do a list of 100 somethings. But, it took me a week to come up with this 25 and I am completely done! Enjoy!!

  1. I have naturally curly hair and only figured out how to "use" it in the last 7 or so years.

  2. I feel guilty when I sleep too long.

  3. I don't have any talents that I'm fantastic at - a ton that I am okay at doing.
  4. I love the rain, even when it should be snow.

  5. I majored in broadcasting - I wanted to be a radio dj.

  6. I still critique radio broadcasters - "I could do better than that!"

  7. I was involved in a high school prank that almost got our teacher fired! (she works at Walmart now!)

  8. I once split a Dairy Queen ice cream cake with 3 other friends - none of us finished our quarters.

  9. I love playing tennis, swimming, rappelling, riding a motorcycle (behind my husband), playing skeet ball, air hockey, pool, bowling.

  10. I don't have a favorite color, though I do love pastels. And judging from my wardrobe I'd say my favorites are blue (any shade), pink, black, and royal purple.

  11. I'm pretty picky about smells - and not just because I'm pregnant. Some lotions make me gag, and my husband dumped a whole bottle of generic Polo down the drain because I hated it. I didn't know it was Polo and bought him another one about a month later - we gave that one away.

  12. I thought I was pretty good at the drums on rock band - then we got guitar hero and I sucked. It seems that I often start out doing well at something and it goes downhill from there. Like in bowling, my first game is going to score higher than my second game.

  13. I wanted to be a teacher when I grew up - now that I'm teaching my son, I'm not so sure. Maybe a CPA? And a mother is still good, too!

  14. I only liked playing with barbies and dolls because I liked to change their outfits. I find that, now that I have a daughter, I'm still into changing outfits.

  15. I'm a copycat artist. I don't do anything original. I copy clothing styles, drawings, decorating ideas, etc.

  16. When I was 3 or 4 I had to be Frosty the snowman in a family play - I think that was the beginning of my weight issues. It didn't help to be called "Bessy the Cow" by some of my family (extended too).

  17. My husband proposed 3 times before I said "yes." The last one was right where I'd always wanted it to be - on a bridge over a river, like the movie "Anne of Avonlea".

  18. I really like to be organized, everything in its place - and when things start getting unorganized, watch out! I turn into a bit of a bear.

  19. I love my family so much. Both the one I grew up in and the one we started together. They are the most important things in my life, and I'll do whatever I can to keep spending quality time with them.
  20. That being said, I hate playing. Ben is always asking me to "play" with him. That's just not me. I can do it for a few minutes, but I quickly get bored with it. I had lots of siblings and cousins to play with - I guess with him being the oldest, I need to be his playmate. Ugh.
  21. I am a pretty good cook. I enjoy baking - my brother and I both want to start a bakery someday.
  22. The first time I went shooting with my husband I did better than him! The only date I was ever asked out on in high school was to go out to Green Rock, to go shooting - and I now own my own gun!
  23. I hate talking on the phone. If I can get away with an email, etc., then I will. I've just never been much of a phone person - must have got that from my dad.
  24. We still use the alarm clock I got for Christmas when I was about 16 years old. I can't believe it still works! Although, that's to be debated, there have been a few times it didn't go off.
  25. When I was a teen (or tween) I thought I could write a pretty interesting book about the going-ons of my life and those around me. For some reason I thought all the "I like you"s were something interesting and original!!!!

100 posts! Wow! I didn't know some of this stuff about you; like the 3 proposals. Why didn't I know that? And I'm glad you love your family so much. I feel the same :)
