Happy Birthday Jason


Dearest Jason,

Thank you for being such an important part of my life. I love you more than anything. Happy 31st birthday my love. You mean the world to me.

And now for something completely different!

25 Things

friday51 (Times 5 and a day early)

It’s like the Friday 5, only BIGGER!

So there’s a meme going around Facebook and my girlfriend Kelly tagged me. I thought I’d go ahead and post it here since I haven’t had much to say lately.

25 Things You May Or May Not Know About Me

  1. I’m obsessed with the entire Twilight Saga and unlike Kelly, I actually liked the movie, a lot.
  2. I love brussel sprouts.
  3. I haven’t maintained contact with any of my past boyfriends. (ex husband excluded because we have kids together)
  4. I have over 40 shot glasses in my collection, and I won’t display any that I didn’t pick out myself.
  5. Halloween is my favorite holiday and not because it’s my birthday.
  6. I don’t have any tattoos.
  7. American Idol makes me want to stab my ears with red hot pokers.
  8. I drive a luxury vehicle and got it without the luxury sticker price
  9. When we’re finally ready and able to buy a house, we hope to settle on the west coast of Washington State.
  10. My oldest daughter has reached the point that I struggle when it comes to helping her with homework.
  11. My favorite class in high school was Biology.
  12. People say I have Flintstone feet, meaning they’re pretty squared off.
  13. I’m 3 years and 3 months older than my husband.
  14. I’m not a “let’s go to the movies” kind of girl.
  15. I have something like 6 email addresses.
  16. Out of every reading assignment I was given in high school, the only books I read cover to cover were The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck and Catcher In The Rye by J. D. Salinger.
  17. I’ve never made zucchini bread even though it’s one of Jason’s favorite quick breads.
  18. I can’t stand vanilla or cream cheese frosting.
  19. Orange “flavored” (as in artificially flavored) drinks as well as orange creamcicles  totally gross me out.
  20. I’d rather scrub toilets with a toothbrush (no, not MY toothbrush) than wash the dishes.
  21. I’m a morning person. I wake up and it’s instant on.
  22. I much prefer taking a bath over a shower.
  23. Penguins are my favorite animal.
  24. I used to want to be an astronaut until I discovered you had to be good at complex math.
  25. My oldest child is attending the same Jr. High my mom and I both attended, and come September she’ll be at the same high school I went to.

Oh my gosh! That was crazy hard. I started it last night around 8 and gave up for the night after #7. Then I started it again around 6:30 and it’s now just after 8 a.m. Who knew it was so hard trying to come up with 25 things about me you may or may not know. Of course I tried to keep it interesting, but I know some of those probably fell short.

PLEASE please please feel free to leave a comment and let me know how many of those you already knew about me. I think *that* would be interesting. Also, were there any you didn’t know that surprised you? If so, do tell!

  1. Ok, so I KNEW about 16 of those and probably would have been able to surmise the rest..I know you pretty well, girl! Except the thing about being an astronaut. That, I did not know. It took me quite a while to finish mine as well.

  2. I tried to comment yesterday from work but for some reason our WebSense filter has your site tagged as “Sex”. I’m not sure what that’s all about since I don’t recall reading anything remotely related to that topic…but anyway…

    I think I knew about a dozen or so, not too bad considering we’ve only known each other a couple of years.

    Cool about Catlin attending the same high school you did. My son will never have that chance.

    Thank you for sharing! I always enjoy your “Friday Fives”.
