25 Random Things

Ok I've seen many of you do this post...and I never did because I didn't think I could think of 25 things! We'll see how I do:

  1. Jeremy and I were talking about it the other day and I was amazed to realize we've been together 9 years. Two years dating and 7 years of marriage in May. Crazy.
  2. I love Law & Order CI and SVU, The Closer, Bones, Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice. Apparently I only like crime or medical dramas. What does that say about me?
  3. I'm a hairstylist and really want to color my hair auburn, but I'm too scared! How many times have I convinced customers not to be scared to do something different, but I'm too wimpy to!
  4. I have more gray hair than someone my age usually has. It is heredity...I got it from both sides of the family. But my brother is 4 years older than me and barely has any gray at all. NOT FAIR.
  5. I was a competitive gymnast as a child. I quit when it stopped being fun.
  6. I would love to perform on Broadway...if only I could sing better!
  7. Jonah was born two days after my brother-in-law's birthday and two days before my niece's birthday.
  8. I ate eggplant Parmesan and Mexican food for dinner the two nights before I went into labor.
  9. I worried before Jonah was born that I would be a bad mother because I can't keep plants alive and the only two pets I've ever had have met unfortunate early deaths (that broke my heart).
  10. I love food and love to cook. If I could, I would go to culinary school.
  11. I love to travel, but it doesn't look like I'll be going far for a year or so...but he's worth it!
  12. I prefer to keep in shape by running, but am finding my motivation hard to come by since Jonah's birth.
  13. I am still good friends with girls I have known since 5th grade. My family moved a lot during my early elementary years, so I never had a friend since birth, but these girls are close enough!
  14. I find brushing my teeth to be a total bummer of a chore. I only do it because I have to and because of morning breath. If it wasn't socially unacceptable and my teeth wouldn't rot, I would consider not doing it.
  15. I love ice cream, french fries, fried chicken, cookies, and ranch dressing. These things God himself sent to earth for me. :)
  16. If Jonah had been a girl she would have been named Clara May.
  17. There's nothing better than a just bathed baby and nothing sweeter than a yawning baby.
  18. I love coffee, but have gotten out of the habit of drinking it every day because of being pregnant and now nursing. I miss it!
  19. I have a degree in Advertising and Public Relations from the U of A. Two years after I graduated I decided to go to beauty school and the rest is history!
  20. I've only had two cars in my life. I drove the one I had at 16 until I was 23 and still drive the one I got then. (It's paid off....fingers crossed that it lasts a little longer!)
  21. I have a sister and two brothers. Our birth order is boy, girl, boy girl. I am the youngest.
  22. My sister was 12 when I was born and I was 12 when her daughter was born. She got strange looks when she would babysit me and I got the same looks when I would babysit her daughter. People really thought at 12 we were the mother!
  23. When I was a teenager I thought I would move to New York City and work as a magazine editor. I never imagined that I would live on some land in the country with a farmboy who wanted cattle and horses, but here I am! And I love it!
  24. I got very close to going to the University of Missouri Columbia for journalism. I decided on the U of A pretty late in the game. I know it was God's will, because I met my husband while I was in college, got married two weeks after I graduated, and have stayed in NWA since.
  25. I love to sew, but am still a beginner. My mom leads me through everything I sew. I have really enjoyed her living close to me because I get lessons on all those things (sewing, cooking, making pie crust, etc) that I didn't pick up before I left home for college.
