I have seen everyone and their mom [okay, maybe not EVERYONE'S mom, but i'm sure there are a few of them out there in bloggy land!] doing the whole IF YOU REALLLLLLLY KNEW ME thing... So, of course, like the original person I am, I decided to jump on that bandwagon. Because I am just that... original. Right? Right!
If you REALLY knew me, you would know that....
*I always wanted to be a teacher... But, I struggled in Math (hello, this teacher still counts on her fingers) & ended up failing freshman year Math. I continued to struggle until someone saw potential in me. My sophomore Math teacher wrote me a note telling me that I could succeed & he believed in me. He changed my life. (But, I still don't Math... thank god I don't teach it!)
*I'm a natural blonde... But, I change my hair color almost monthly.
*I am IN LOVE with Justin Bieber. No joke. Earlier this summer, when his new CD came out, I made Hubs go out to Best Buy as soon as it opened to buy the CD. If I wasn't married I would probably be the next
*I am OBSESSED with serial killers. Need to know anything about Jeffrey Dahmer, Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy? I'm your go to girl... Never know when you may need that
*I get motion sickness. I once had to get off the FERRIS WHEEL at a CHURCH FESTIVAL because I thought I was going to throw up and/or pass out (come on, this was one
*I am very sarcastic. To everyone. At any time. There are still times when Hubs isn't sure if i'm being sarcastic or serious.
*I was a total frat rat while in college. My boyfriend (at the time) was a Phi Delt. My best friend was the Phi Delt president. My ex boyfriend was a Phi Delt. Oh yeah, and then I married a Phi Delt. See the correlation? I may have rocked those Phi Delta Theta letters more than my own sororities letters.
*I am directionally challenged. IN. EVERY. SENSE. OF. THE WORD. I can't get myself around Houston, let alone the city I grew up in.
*Fried Chicken creeps me out. So does anything with filling inside (jelly doughnuts, ding dongs, twinkies, anyone remember zebra cakes from back in the day??)
*My parents grew up next door to each other. They have been married for almost 35 years. My dad has 8 siblings and my mom has 7 siblings. All but two are married with 3+ kids. No one in my family has ever been divorced.
*I never had a job in college. I consider my job NOW as the first job I have ever had (Being a lifeguard for a summer in HS doesn't count.) I should probably play the lottery to pay off my gazillion dollars of student loans.
*I have to sleep with a fan on full blast. And not any dinky little ceiling fan. I mean a huge box fan that sounds as if a million semi's are driving around outside my window. I even bring it to hotels.
*My favorite animal is a Moose. Yes, you heard that correctly. I think they are cute and cuddly. Who wouldn't want one taking a snooze next to you? If you gave a Moose a muffin... [hence all the antler pictures.]
*The first concert I ever went to was the Dr. Dre and Eminem "Up in Smoke" Tour when I was in 7th grade. Did I mention that I went with two boys and the concert was 20 minutes away. Our parents had to bring us there & pick us up. Why in the world my parents let me go is beyond me.
Welp, THE END! If you made it all the way down here, you deserve a cookie. Or some wine... Wait, no, I'm not very willing to give up my wine, but you could always have one of those disgusting zebra cakes instead.
Did I tell you how much I love the Biebs? Oh, I did? Okay, well, I just wanted to let you know one more time in case you forgot from the beginning of this novel.
|Aren't I lovely? This was in Venice, Italy|
Someone should have told me that I overused that peace sign. And that duck face? Yeah, we already know that's not attractive. And um, who wears Uggs and a short skirt in the dead of winter [I even think there was snow that day]. Oh well, you live and learn, right?
