50 things about me

Inspired by other blogs I've seen, I've decided to post 50 things about me you might not know. Other sites have 100 things, I however am not that ambitious!

1. Growing up I always wanted to be a Veterinarian.

2. I was a vegetarian for about 20 years until I met Kyle.

3. My eyes are blue but my left eye is partially brown.

4. My favorite TV show ever is Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Angel, I will watch them anytime they are on, no matter what time.

5. I watch WAY too much TV.

6. I love karaoke.

7. My favorite color is green.

8. My dream car is a Chevy Avalanche

9. I love to bake.

10. Sometimes I would skip my college classes to play pool.

11. I cannot stand the movie The Sound of Music, I refuse to watch it.

12. My favorite sport to play is volleyball

13. In third grade I had a piece of hair that wasn't cooperating so I cut it off. There was a huge chunk missing.

14. I love dogs!

15. My favorite book is Til We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis.

16. I don't like watching golf on TV.

17. I like spear fishing.

18. I like getting shots/having blood taken at the doctors. I always have to watch.

19. I like getting foot rubs.

20. I do not like being touched between my toes, it can ruin a perfectly good foot rub.

21. I'm addicted to choloclate.

22. I was once subpoenaed as a witness in a murder trial.

23. I have a raging temper.

24. I never liked eating fish until I moved up north and had fresh walleye.

25. I don't like steak.

26. I complain alot.

27. When I was little I sucked on a chlorine tablet (used for the pool), I asked my dad what would happen if someone ate one and he told me that they would die. I cried and cried, I don't think he knew what I had done. Seems as though I've turned out okay.

28. My husband says I'm impatient.

30. I like gardening but I hate weeding.

31. My favorite season is Fall.

33. I have naturally curly hair. In high school I used to blowdry it straight and then curl it, I don't know what I was thinking.

34. I've never broken a bone.

35. I have, however, had stitches. I jumped into the pool backwards but didn't jump out far enough and my chin hit the concrete.

47. I vaccuum alot, I used to vaccuum the house 3 times a day.

48. I am a big Ultimate Fighting fan.

Let me start by saying The Sound of Music is my fav movie and I hated the book Til We Have Faces (I've read it twice). But we agree on the peony as a fav flower and that I consider you one of my best friends too. Someone hand me a tissue...

Love Ya!
