50 things you may not know about me:

  1. I wore my hair the exact same way every day in 7th grade. It involved pulling half of it into a ponytail while still wet, and letting it air-dry. It looked horrible.
  2. When I was little, my dad made wooden swords for my brother Ben and I so that we could play He-Man and She-Ra.
  3. My first kiss was in 12th grade, how big of a dork am I?
  4. My first kiss was with the person I today call my husband.
  5. I can’t even quantify how many people I kissed during the time between that first kiss with D. and when we actually got together more than 4 years later. (I think I was trying to make up for lost time.)
  6. I believed in Santa Claus for WAY too long.
  7. I’ve always wanted to live in New York for at least a few years of my life, but I know that dream was sacrificed when I decided to marry D.
  8. I could totally eat a whole 12” sub at Subway, but I force myself to just get a 6”.
  9. I wish I could live all 4 years of college over again. I hate that I’m an adult now.
  10. I have a serious weakness for men with Australian or English accents, and it doesn’t matter their age, I immediately find them sexy.
  11. I literally sobbed watching the series finale of Dawson’s Creek.
  12. I hate my body.
  13. It’s impossible for me to get out of credit-card debt. I have many times been “this” close to having it all paid off, and then something comes up.
  14. I love to gossip too much. It’s a serious problem.
  15. I become mute-girl when I am put in social situations where I don’t know people very well.
  16. I am terrified of having children and I don’t know when I’ll be ready.
  17. I feel like I am living the movie Office Space.
  18. I was so scared of boys in junior high that I hung up on the first boy to ever call me. He rode my bus, and I avoided eye contact with him for the rest of the year until he went to High School.
  19. I throw like a girl, and almost always strike out. It’s caused me a lot of gym class anxiety over the years.
  20. I once dropped a Lit class in my sophomore year of college because we were supposed to have a book read by the next day and I hadn’t even started it.
  21. My family has had Spanish-speaking exchange students living in our home on 6 different occasions for months at a time.
  22. My favorite Christmas movie of all time is White Christmas with Bing Crosby. My dad is the only person who will watch it with me.
  23. I know I’m a terrible driver, but I’m too stubborn to admit this fact to my husband.
  24. I used to know the sign language that goes with the song “From a Distance” by Bette Midler.
  25. I used to change my outfit 3-4 times daily between the ages of 9 and 13.
  26. I made it to “Caddettes” in Girl Scouts. (Yes, we’ve already established that I was a big dork.)
  27. I went out with a guy for two months and I didn’t know his real name.
  28. My favorite flower is the tulip.
  29. My drink of choice at Starbucks is a grande non-fat, no-whip mocha.
  30. I prefer red wine to white wine.
  31. I have my dad’s huge ears.
  32. I absolutely hate them.
  33. I have considered having that surgery where they attach them to your head better so they don’t stick out.
  34. When I was in 5th grade, 8th grader Jeff Cota called me Dumbo on the bus.
  35. I cannot cook. I become somewhat panicky when I’m trying to do more than one thing in the kitchen at the same time.
  36. I absolutely love that Ryan Reynolds guy from Van Wilder, and I actually considered seeing Blade: Trinity when I saw that he was in it.
  37. I hate talking on the phone.
  38. I prefer Diet Pepsi to Diet Coke.
  39. I watch re-runs of the shows Angel and Charmed almost on a daily basis.
  40. I never would have even considered watching them when they were actually shown for the first time on prime time.
  41. I had the worst haircut of my life when I was 18, forever known as the “Triangle Cut”.
  42. I was in a summer bowling league for like 5 years.
  43. I had a huge crush on my next-door neighbor Trent growing up.
  44. One time I did that thing to my shirt where you take the bottom part and fold it up into the neck hole part of the shirt, creating a classy white trash mid-riff-baring look, and went over to Trent’s house to try to seduce him.
  45. I was in like 4th grade.
  46. My brother and I told our younger brother Nathan that he was born with a big crack down his face, and our parents and the doctors thought it was actually his butt.
  47. We also told him he was adopted.
  48. I have never been able to do a cartwheel, and crooked somersaults are the extent of my gymnastic abilities.
  49. I consider myself religious, but I never remember to pray unless I need something from God.
  50. Admitting that makes me feel like a terrible person.
