25 random things about me

I posted this to Facebook, so if you read it there already sorry.

Anyway, enjoy hearing stuff about me that you probably already know or didn't really want to know. I enjoyed writing it.

1. It only took about 20 people sending this to me for me to finally do it. :)
2. I don't really like chocolate. Never have. I will eat an occasional M&M or oreo, but that is about it. Just the idea of a slice of chocolate cake makes me sick.
3. I love reality TV ... you know The Bachelor, Biggest Loser... but I don't have as much time to watch as I would like (really 2 hours of TV... in my dreams!)
4. I am so happy to be back in Texas. I don't ever want to move away again.
5. I love going and doing with the kids. Like going to the zoo, going to park, etc. I just hate the preparation that some activities take.
6. I want to go to Disney so bad (I've never been!). But I'm waiting another 2 years until Emma is potty trained, but before Grace starts school! So if you want to come with us in the winter or spring of 2011 let us know! :)
7. Most of my vacations as a child were to the ski slopes. I was a pretty good skiier... was even ranked twice! I haven't skiied since college :(
8. My mom is my best friend. I don't know what I would do without her. Seriously, I'm so lucky to live only 20 minutes from her!
9. I have a huge extended family. My mom is 1 of 9 and my dad is 1 of 8. Plus almost all of those aunts and uncles are married and have several kiddos so holidays are very busy for us! But I LOVE it! (oh and most of these family members live in the DFW area).
10. I would love to be a teacher someday. Maybe when my girls are in school?
11. I love anything crafts. Love to sew, paint, scrapbook, make cards. Only problem is I don't have the time for it all. So I just do it when I can. I think I will do a lot of this when I retire one day :)
12. I love to give gifts.
13. I am sort of a control freak.
14. I love to read. But I didn't really start reading for pleasure until I was out of college at 23. I just finished Twilight and I'm reading 2 other books, one for Sunday school and the other for a bible study.
15. I am a MAJOR neat freak. Just open my cabinets or look in my closets next time you are over. Seriously I love my label maker and love to organize.
16. I don't really like to shop. Some days I enjoy shopping, but I HATE trying things on. I usually just buy and return if it doesn't work. This is sort of hard now with kids.
17. I don't know that I have a favorite food. I love anything I didn't have to cook.
18. My favorite color is blue. I think its because I have blue eyes.
19. I met my husband when I was 20. I actually had another boyfriend at the time (only for a week) when I dumped him and Adam asked me on a date like the next day!
20. I have the smartest husband I know. Seriously, Adam is so smart. I just wish I knew more about what he does. I really have no clue. (That sounds bad like I don't care, I really do, its just that electrical engineering really is like a foreign language to me!)
21. Adam and I are big savers. But its paid off. We have no debt at all, except our mortgage. We even bought our last car with cash. It was an amazing feeling!
22. I wasn't a big saver until I met Adam. I actually owed about $800 or so on a credit card when we got married and he paid it off that month. Such a sweet hubbie.
23. When our kids are grown, Adam and I want to travel. Hey we will only be in our late 40's!
24. I am so happy that I have 2 girls. I always wanted a sister (I have 2 brothers). I'm so happy that they will always have each other.
25. Not sure I want anymore kids. But ask me again tomorrow and I might give you a different answer. :)
