thirty thangs: #1

Heather has decided to create a blog linky party for this 30 Things challenge, 
so make sure you visit her and play along!

Best of Both Worlds

#1. List 20 random facts about yourself.

1. I was born 4 weeks early (originally due in April) and weighed 5lbs9oz. teeny tiny! 

2. I've been wearing glasses since I was 8 years old, but I didn't get contacts until I was 16.

3. I've been pronouncing the word "plethora" wrong in my head my whole life. I always thought it was "pleth-OR-a," not "pleth-er-a." haha.

4.  when I was a kid, we had all kinds of pets, including a giant pig and a rooster. the rooster used to chase us around the yard and attempt to kick us with his spurs. 

5. I love mixing salty & sweet - I put salt on my watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, etc. 

6. I have about 25 hours worth of tattoos, and I fully intend to add many more. 

7. I fell in P.E. class when I was in 5th grade and hurt my wrist. my teacher at the time didn't believe I was really hurt and didn't let me go to the nurse. my mom took me to the hospital that night, only to discover my wrist was broken. needless to say, she was PISSED. 

8. so far, I've read 23 books this year. 

9. my grandmother made me a quilt when I was about 5 years old. I still sleep with it to this day. it has cats on it. :)

10. I've been singing Bohemian Rhapsody to Ronin in hopes that he will love it when he comes out of the womb. 

11. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. mmmm turkey. mmm pumpkin pie. 

12. I used to walk on my tip toes as a small child. I also sucked my thumb for a ridiculously long time. I wore braces for 3 years. 

13. if I become half the mother my mom was, I could die happy. 

14. I smoked cigarettes for almost 10 years before deciding to quit in October 2010. it was, hands down, the BEST decision I've ever made. I honestly can't believe I ever smoked, because I find it so disgusting now. 

15. my best friend and I used to hate each other. ;)

16. Pinterest annoys me 95% of the time. I feel like you can't be original anymore, cause people automatically assume you got an idea from Pinterest. however, I still pin things I think will be useful in the future. 

17. I don't tweet. ever. sorry if you follow me. 

18. Counting Crows are my favorite band of all time, even though I mostly listen to country. 

19. I am incredibly lucky to have married my best friend. he still makes me just as happy as he did when we first met 5 years ago. 

20. I don't follow celebrity news, and I really don't understand the fascination of it. 


  1. I enjoyed learning more about you!

  2. What a horrible gym teacher! I am one ofthose who loves celeb news. I dont know why though. I think its hilarious about you and Kales. Michele and Kaley were talking about this on the way to Sugarland Sunday because they use to hate eachother too.

  3. Can't remember if you have brothers or sisters - but if your mom was early having you and your siblings - good chance you will be early - just saying

  4. Found you through Heather's 30 things... I'm doing it too, feel free to check it out! (bonibunch.blogspot.com)
