I thought it would be fun just to share ten random facts with you. I’ve done a lot of soul searching over the past year and self-development and essentially establishing a clearer vision for my life.
But some things remain the same…
I am highly allergic to mayonnaise. I can eat it, but if it touches my skin I break out into hives instantly. I was always terrified that while I was sleeping at a sleepover or camp that girls would spread it all over my face. Kind of like how they would freeze panties and cover your face in shaving cream?
I shave my legs every single night. Cannot stand to get into bed with scratchy legs. Ick. Clearly, I have some sort of sensory issue. Trust me, I’ve tried – only to get out of bed at 2am and shave because I seriously cannot sleep with itchy legs.
I am also a freak when it comes to the floors in my house. I find myself vacuuming at least one room every day. I cannot stand to see dirt or crumbs on the floor. And we live in the land of dirt and muck. We don’t have a paved driveway, garage, or even a real sidewalk to our front door, so there is always tons of wet grass and leaves. Drives me bonkers.
My husband was my very first real boyfriend and date. We met three days after I turned 18, and have not gone a day without each other since. Well, we’ve spent plenty of days apart thanks to the Army, but never a day without talking. I even quit my dream school, that I worked my butt off to get into to move to CT with him when I was 19. Some people thought I was crazy. I’ll share our love story soon. It’s pretty incredible.
I have battled my weight my entire life. I have always been overweight except 2006, when I lost 60# before our wedding. Then, I gained 70# when I was pregnant and am officially 80# overweight now… ugh. This is THE year I’m losing it for good. So sick of it holding me back from things I want to do. (more on this later)
I am currently writing two eBooks, but I’m kind of at a stand-still, because the idea overwhelms me!
My alcoholic drink of choice would a Maker and Diet coke. Very rarely drink anything, but given the choice, that would be it.
I am totally afraid of heights. I have no idea why, but they freak me out. As do high porches or decks that you can see through, and sometimes even stairs like that.
I am a Baptized believer, and don’t remember ever not going to church. My faith is about the only thing that has remained constant in my life. I thank my Mom for that, daily. She was an incredible influence. I remember many times waking up in the morning and finding her on the porch with her Bible and daily devotionals. She taught Sunday School (the 2-3 year olds were her favorite), as long as she could, and always made sure we were surrounded by great Christian women. Such a great example, and something I hope Elizabeth remembers about me.
and last, but not least…
I am a total organize junky. I haven’t posted a lot about it yet, but I cannot function in chaos. I make list after list and am constantly reevaluating systems and time.
So, now that you know all about me, tell me about YOU! What do you do? Do you have kids? Where do you live?
