25 random things

So, like everyone else - i was tagged.... Here we go, in no particular order:

  1. I am a junk drawer junkie. I hate clutter, and I think that is why I don't mind junk drawers - you don't see the mess?
  2. I am an extremely picky eater, but I'll never understand why people make such a big deal about it. I eat what I like, and have never gone hungry (obviously)...
  3. I won some really big awards in elementary school for poster contests (Mr. Yuck and Mothers Against Drunk Driving), yet I am the worlds worst artist.
  4. My MOM on the other hand.... does have artistic talent.
  5. I balance my checkbook to the penny. I'm a math nerd, I can not help it.
  6. I majored in finance because my uncles did and they were doing very well. I had no idea what I was doing.
  7. I never had the "when I grow up I wanna be a, X, X or X..." I just knew I wanted a different life.
  8. I was so shocked when Shane proposed to me that I didn't answer - nor do I remember what he said. Poor guy.
  9. I hate more than anything when people say they will do something, but don't do it. I think that is why I don't like to make official plans unless I know I can follow thru. I don't want to be a hypocrite.
  10. I'm not a touchy feely person. If I give you hugs, it means you are very special to me.
  11. I am absolutely obsessed with shoes. I don't have a million pairs, because I don't have enough places to wear them, but the ones I have... I LOVE.
  12. I used to be a cheap date, Bud Light was my beverage of choice. Don't judge, it was a step up from Pullman's official Bush Light norm.
  13. Poor Shane, my palette has definitely changed and I am NOT so cheap anymore.
  14. If I weren't so afraid of skin cancer I could live at the beach, in the sun all day long. Something about the water and the sun and the warmth just makes me so happy.
  15. I'm obsessed with my dogs - but I suppose if you know me, you already know that. They are my children, and I could care less what anyone else thinks of me for choosing 4 legged kids over having a baby.
  16. I wouldn't change my college years for anything. I lived, I was crazy and I met some of my life-long friends there.
  17. I live in fear of constantly being injured, yet I can NOT stop training. 50% of the time I'm training something hurts...but the rush is so worth it.
  18. I do realize how messed up # 17 sounds.
  19. I hate, with a passion when people say that they can not run "because I have bad knees."
  20. I have several "second husbands" and yes, Shane knows about them. Dave Mathews, Ed Burns and the most recent (after watching the cheesy chick flick P.S. I love you) Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
  21. I weigh myself almost every day. Of course I realize it doesn't mean anything, but it's my sanity.
  22. I do not like Holidays. I don't know what happened to me, I used to love them....
  23. I never in a million years expected to be married and in love and so happy. I just didn't know if it would happen for me.
  24. I got married on a beach without friends or family - I was afraid to have all the attention, I was afraid I would pass out!
  25. I've learned (the hard way) that friends that are worth having, will always be there and it should not be an effort to keep them in your life.

So many people have been tagged already - so if you read this and you want to do it - have at it!

I am so not a hugging person either. But it is starting to grow on me. I remember the first time I placed in my age group in a small triathlon, the other girls wanted to hug me. All my friends laughed at how uncomfortable I looked.

You spoke my mind with #14, 15, 16 and 19... and #25 was a big lesson too for me this past year. We stray on #10 though... hugs are free-flowing from me if I like you :)

So glad you shared!
