:10 Things About Me:

Just for fun (and so you know a little bit more about me) here are 10 things about me.

1. When I was 17 I wanted my highlighted hair brown again so I colored it with box color - by myself. I ended up with orange roots and brown tips. I cried, a lot. Two salon trips and $140 later I ended up with almost black hair. Luckily it faded quickly. What we do in the name of beauty, huh?

2. I don't feel like any meal is complete (even breakfast) without something sweet. Chocolate and ice cream are my go to goodies, but anything will do.

3. When I was 8 I was in a commercial for a local furniture store. Another boy and I pretended to be a couple shopping for furniture and arguing over why we choose to go to that store. My line was "because of the large selection." It was kind of a mouth full for a toothless 8 year old.

4. My husband and I didn't cut our cake at our wedding. We weren't even going to have a cake (I just didn't care about it that much), but my aunt did make a beautiful cake for us last minute. I think I didn't want my husband to smash cake in my face because I'm sure he would have.

5. My small hand cheese grater is my favorite kitchen utensil/gadget. Love that thing (more about that soon).

6. At this point in my life I often find myself choosing my grocery store according to their accommodations for kids as opposed to great deals and coupon match-ups. Kroger has a cart that will fit all 4 of my children, they give out free cookies, pack my groceries and take them to my car for me. I love great customer service.

7. I worked as a telemarketer for 2 weeks in high school. What a boring and frustrating job. Thankfully I got a different job that I had applied for at the same time.

8. I was curling my bangs getting ready for my 8th grade choir party when I smelled something burning. Then I noticed the sizzling. I removed the curling iron from my hair to find part of my bangs burnt onto the rod in a charred mess. Ahhhh! My mom wasn't even home to help me fix the mess that my hair had become.  (2 hair stories, sorry).

9. I do about 90% of the driving when both my husband and I are in the car. He doesn't like to drive and I do.  I'm a very annoying side seat driver (gasping, putting on the imaginary brake, bracing around every turn) so we get along much better when I drive.

10. Today I'll be eating cheesecake for lunch, taking a nap (it's my birthday so I can do that) and hopefully doing some crafting!

Do any of you ladies do most of the driving in your family?!

  1. Happy birthday! And it sounds like you have some great hair stories. (:

  2. HA HA, I totally remember the bangs burned onto the curling iron incedent, not that I was there when it actually happened, but afterwards I mean. At least you never dyed your hair fuschia and then styled it about three feet wide like a sister older sister I know.

  3. Happy Birthday! Cheesecake for lunch sounds delicious!

  4. I loved your story about your bangs. I lived in Australia when I was a teen, and didn't have a blow dryer. So I set my wet hair on curlers and then put a space hearter on the kitchen table, I put my head on my arms to let the top of my head get dry......yes, I burnt off the whole top of my hair.

    I also don't let my husband drive when we are together. I drive him crazy with my back seat driving.
