Heads up..some of these are fun and some of these are serious, you can decide what is what ;)
I was born blonde, but in the last couple of years my hair has been starting to get darker. I had bottle dark hair for a few years in high school and college, but I'm not willing to accept the boring color that I fear my hair is turning. To remedy this, I've been getting highlights for the last couple of years. Blonde hair, don't care
One morning before kindergarten, I was eating a bowl of cheerios when a spider crawled out of the bowl. This memory still makes me sick to my stomach- ick. That was the day that I started being freaked out by spiders and the day I stopped eating cheerios. I still can't smell cheerios without that memory.
I was in choir from ages 4 to 19. I played piano from ages 8 to 16. Because of this, I'm pretty quick at reading sheet music and picking up on music.
sorry..blurry to the extreme
I'm addicted to candy. Growing up, my sugar intake was strictly monitored. I'm talking one piece of sugar free candy at lunch, 5 skittles after dinner, Halloween candy lasting more than a year. I learned to sneak candy into the house and hide it in my room. When I started going to schools with vending machines, I ate candy all the time. I still eat way too much sugar on a regular basis. It's probably rather disgusting how much sugar my body can handle.
I have a birthmark on my upper right arm. When I was younger, kids thought I had a melted piece of chocolate on my arm. As much as I like chocolate, there's no way I would be messy enough to get it on my arm.
I was in the gifted and talented program in elementary school. I took the SATs for the first time in 5th grade. I don't know what happened when I hit college...I almost flunked out!
I may or may not have been a band groupie for a year in college. This opened up the world of local bands and musicians in Fayetteville and I haven't looked back.
Being an only child, I need my alone time. I don't have to be reading, on the computer, watching tv, or on the computer. Sometimes I just need to sit for a few minutes and enjoy the calm.
I'm not very good at talking to people my own age that I don't know. My cousins are all at least 15 years older than me and I'm an only child, so I'm awkward when it comes to meeting people my age.
I love music from the 50s and 60s. I'm not much of a fan of most 70s or 80s music. I blame this on the fact that my dad was born in 1940, so I'm used to the really old oldies.
I'm adopted. I've talked about my adoption a few times in the past, but I don't think I realized the aftermath of growing up with the knowledge that someone gave me up until a few years ago. Prior to meeting Leo, I had some serious commitment issues. I didn't stay in relationships very long (when I actually was in a relationship with someone) because I was terrified of being the one who would get dumped. Solution to feeling abandoned in my mind? Breaking up with the person before they could do it to me.
Now that you know the facts of me, you need to get to know one of my blogging besties: Paige @ A Dose of Paige.
Paige and I met when we were both baby bloggers, and we've really gotten to know each other well. If you haven't heard of Paige, she's a nursing student in Memphis that likes to dance on the side (to Just Dance, people!). In 2011, her faith and love of Christmas finally got renewed. Even though she's finally back on the Christmas bandwagon, what's her favorite holiday? Black Friday, of course! Paige and I actually got to meet in person during December's Memphis Meetup, and I'm still trying to convince her to come visit Arkansas. So do me a favor? Head over to her blog, tell her I sent you, and also maybe mention that she needs to come visit me. Thanks!
