10 Things

8:28 AM

I read lots of other blogs. Some of my favorite blogs discuss children, faith, photography and every day life. It's fun to see how other people live their lives. I picked up an idea from Beth Moore's blog, The LPM Blog, and thought I'd play along.

10 Things You Might Not Know About Me

1. I like even numbers. 2 and 8 are my favorite.

2. I prefer using a dish towel over napkins or paper towels.

3. I love saving money. On groceries, clothes, car or house. It's such a satisfying feeling!

4. I screen calls.

5. I would like to learn to cook, but I always decide it takes too much time when I try. I also blame my small kitchen. Dragging out just a few pots and pans makes the small space so cramped.

6. I always wear my seat belt. I go through the motion of buckling without even knowing I'm doing it.

7. I hate bacon. It made me sick one time in fourth grade. I've never found room in my heart to forgive it.

8. I taught myself to parallel park in college. A skill I still use today.

9. I believe in hand written thank you notes. It's just the right thing to do. (And yes, I think bad thoughts about you if don't send me a thank you note.)

10. I enjoy politics and history. I minored in Political Science.

Okay, now it's your turn. In the comments section, I dare you to post 10 quirky things about yourself. Come on, play along, you know you want to!

  1. Ooh, I'll play!
    1. I am self-diagnosed lactose intollerant. I can't stand milk products and only eat them if I have to.
    2. I hate feet. They are hideously disgusting and if you try to touch me with them, I'll flip out on you!
    3. The first thing I look at when I meet someone is there teeth.
    4. I never try on clothes. If they don't fit, I'll just take them back!
    5. I have an obsession with 80s music. I listen to it all the time.
    6. My hair used to be blonde- I'm talkin' really blonde. When I was about 14 it started to darken.
    7. I absolutely LOVE children and want kids of my own so bad, but I'm deathly afraid to have them! I'm seriously thinking adoption is the best option!
    8. I am very competitive and feel like I must win everything.
    9. I also have an obsession with even numbers. My radio/TV volume always has to be on an even number (Is that OCD?).
    10. I have a crooked finger. When I was in 7th grade, I smashed it in a door and it's never been the same.

  2. I LOVE it! I will probably steal your stolen idea and do it, too! :)

  3. I LOVE it! I will probably steal your stolen idea and do it, too! :)

  4. I also posted this on my page - and added 5 fun random things about Abby!

    1. I hate pickles. I think they are the devil's creation. They spread their nasty juice all over anything they come in contact with. There's no getting that taste out.
    2. I also hate bananas. When I was little, we went to the Grand Canyon and my parents thought I needed potassium (or some other lame excuse). The way I remember it, my daddy shoved a banana down my throat and made me eat it. To this day, I cannot stomach the texture but love the smell. Go figure.
    3. I HATE talking on the phone. I believe that most things that need to be said can be said via text - unless they are extra juicy, vitally important, or confidential. Especially now that I have a very loud baby.
    4. I am a hypochondriac. (Shocker!) If my leg hurts, it is a blood clot. Indigestion is a heart attack. Headache, brain tumor. Abby has a rash? Measles. Howie throws up? Stomach cancer. Because of this, I know waaaaay too much about medical issues and could probably rival most doctors I know.
    5. I am insanely competitive. Like really. I get a terrible attitude when I lose.
    6. If you lie to me, and I catch you, you are more than likely written off. Forever.
    7. Like Mercer, I am addicted to my blackberry. They don't call them crackberries for nothing. I check my email, my facebook, my text messages constantly. I blog from it. When the roller ball gets stuck, I feel like I might melt down.
    8. I am a bit of a technological geek. I CAN fix your computer, your phone, your wireless internet connection. Do I want to? No.
    9. I am a terrible singer. A horrible one. Ask Tim. But in my car, I can hit every note Idina Menzel hits in "Defying Gravity." I sound just like Taylor Swift...or Sugarland...or whoever I am singing. And Abby loves it. God bless her, she doesnt know any better yet.
    10. I refuse to wear the color yellow. It makes me look like I am dying from some horrible disease.
