33 Things you might not have known about me!

1. I’m a middle child there for your typical ” peace maker”, even tempered, worrier kind of gal!

2.  I have a magazine addiction and have been known to hoard Better Homes and Garden, Food Network Mag, Martha Stewart Living, Family Circle, Flea Market Finds, and any other BHG sister mags.

3. I have a hard time staying one hair color for more then a few years.

4. Donuts are my Kryptonite! Maple bars in particular.

5. Over half my wardrobe comes from the thrift store or consignment shops! I’m a sucker for a good deal and love great finds!

6. I can’t sleep before I do my OCD check list! Door locks, closet door shut, blinds pushed up, bathroom door shut, alarm clock facing the wall. Good night!

7. I have vivid dreams almost every night and can remember them almost every morning. Signs of a bad sleeper.

8. Total celeb crush on Adam Levine! Total crush!

9. I check out like 6 books at a time from the library but only get threw about 1 before they are due back.

10. I have no problem going to the movies by myself. In fact I love it!

11. Favorite soup: Mushroom Bisque from Zupa’s.

12. I meet my husband in high school. Was it love at first sight? No, not really! I was that annoying girl in early morning seminary! It wasn’t until our senior year that our friendship turned into something more!

13.  I’d rather water ski then snow ski.

14. I sat next to the lead singer of  “Green Day” on a flight and didn’t figure out who he was until I had landed and drove home.

15. I started piano lessons a few months ago and am LOVING it!

16. My favorite city on earth is San Fransisco. I could live there again. It’s the place I miss the most!

17. I have 4 best friends who I’d do anything for. Boopers, my sister, Julie, my childhood bestie, Shireen, my adulthood bestie and Steph my Sister in Law, known me forever bestie! I love them all to the core and they love me too. That is a treasured blessing.

18. I put my bare bum on a glacier in Alaska cause, duh…it was  a glacier in Alaska! A must in my opinion.

19. I married the prom king and he married a runner up.

20. I have been known to buy and wear kids clothes. Come on! When they fit and are super cheap why wouldn’t I? Ok, I know I shouldn’t do this. It is embarrassing when your girl friend points out that she knows my pants are  from The Children’s Place. Char, you’d be happy to know I just got rid of those!

21. I could eat eggs every day. Favorite way to eat eggs: over easy.

22. I’m afraid of birds.

32.  I had my first school yard crush in the 1st grade when a boy named Shane kissed me on the cheek behind a tree on the play ground! I wonder where Shane is now. If any of you know of a Shane who went to Fern Greenwood Elementary School in Torrance, CA. Tell him hi for me!

33. I’m turning 33 tomorrow and can hardly wait! I LOVE getting older! It’s never bothered me and I welcome it with open arms! So what If my body aches a little every time I wake up! So what if I need a nap in the afternoon. Aging is your mile marker for growth and learning! I’ve learned a lot this last year. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for me this next year and according to this article 33 is the year people are most happy! Bring it on!

    I fear birds, too. I thinks it’s from our common CA roots and having to each lunch outside with all those seagulls watching and waiting to grab your food or fly over and poop on you. Anyways, Happy Birthday!
