Wednesday, October 25, 2017

As always, a special thanks to my talented sister for these photos!!

Happy 30th Birthday TO ME!

Because I've seen this on a few other blogs, I thought I'd share 30 facts about me today.  Some of these you may already know, and some may be new to you!

1. 25 is my favorite number.
2. I used to play softball.  I batted 4th and played 1st base.
3.I have horrible eyesight but refuse to wear contacts or my glasses all the time.
4. I'm both the oldest and middle child.  I'm the middle child for my dad and the oldest child for my mom....all girls, too 😊
5. My goal in school was to be valedictorian.  I made my first B (89.3--I remember vividly) in chemistry and that knocked me out of the running.  I still graduated with above a 4.0.
6. My mom begged me to make Bs in college so I would enjoy college 😂😂 I took her advice and had a great college experience!
7. My hair is naturally brown and wavy.
8. My toenails are always painted.  The only time they haven't been has been for surgery.
9. I could have died as a 3 year old.  I had the chicken pox which resulted in staph infection and I was hospitalized for over a week.  That resulted in my teeth being discolored (which I'm really self conscious about)
10. I really like running and the longest race I've ever run is a half marathon
11. I don't like going to the dentist.
12. I love going to the dermatologist.
13. I pass out when I see blood coming out of someone's mouth or when I'm giving blood (which is why I never give blood anymore!)
14. I can't sing
15. I can't play an instrument
16. I once rear-ended a couple who had been having an affair with each other.  Long story, but my insurance agent ended up having to tell the woman, after she claimed she had to go to the hospital for neck pain, that he would tell her husband who she was with if she didn't stop calling me.  How did I know it was an affair?  They started out at the light beside me and kept making out--then I noticed it was a much older woman and a younger guy.  It was an interesting week.
17. I'm 5'7" and am taller than my mom and both sisters
18. Yosemite National Park is the most beautiful place I've ever been in my life
19. I love to fly, but I get really nervous during take off because I stress about whether my ears will pop or not.
20. I'm extremely laid back about lots of things and Dustin is extremely type A about the things I'm laid back about.
21. I mostly sleep on my back.
22. I have a really good memory
23. I like to scare Dustin every once in a while because he's so easy to scare
24. I take a shower every morning and every matter what
25. I keep a running list of baby names on my phone along with a running list of books I want to read and the paint colors I used in my house
26. I am the worst at backing up my car, but I can parallel park.
27. I am a really fast reader
28. I never wanted to be a teacher, and I didn't change my major to English until the spring semester of my sophomore year.  But I love it and know this is where God wants me.
29. I have a high pain tolerance
30. My favorite movies are When Harry Met Sally and Pretty Woman.
