1 – if the lights are off when i’m getting into bed, i hate hate hate standing next to the bed. too many scary movies when i was little make me picture a bony hand reaching out from under the bed to grab my ankles! silly, i know. but still, i jump into bed, just in case.
2 – my feet are different sizes. one is almost a half size larger than the other. the shoe guy at nordstrom’s was wonderful enough to give me 2 different sized shoes for my wedding, but other than that, one foot is always a bit more squished than the other. i’m seeing a trend here… i seem to be uncomfortable a lot. hmm. or maybe i just complain a lot.
3 – i used to have my belly button pierced. i got it done a couple months before we got married and i surprised sean with it! after getting pregnant, it hasn’t been back in. never will be.
4 – i want a tattoo. but i’ll probably never get one. for the last 10+ years, i have wanted the same thing: a smallish star, turquoise with a red border, on my lower back. i know everyone gets a tattoo there, but i figured if i really hated it, i’d hardly ever have to see it. and it would be hidden most of the time.
5 – my husband says i have a one (temperature) degree range of comfort. it’s kinda true. i am almost always uncomfortable, usually too cold, sometimes too hot, rarely “just right”. maybe i have poor circulation? i can be standing in a hot shower and my skin will still feel cold to the touch. i’m a freak.
6 – i love giving birth. love love love it. i’d do it over and over and over again. but i despise being pregnant. not that my pregnancies were really all that terrible, but i never felt good. maybe its because i was a whale – gaining 60 -65 lbs each pregnancy.
7 – i didn’t pass my driver’s test the first time. or the second time. but i swear it wasn’t my fault!
8 – i wear my hair in pigtails almost every day. probably not appropriate for a 31 year old, but my hair is in a bit of a funky stage, and its just so easy. i also wear a hat at least 3 days a week. i’m lazy when it comes to my hair. i think its time to break my nearly 2 year streak and get my hair cut professionally again. i may have to do a fundraiser for it ;)
9 – i don’t drink coffee. i think it tastes like dirt. but i have recently started drinking lattes, and they are pretty yum. i do like coffee flavored things, though. i know, weird. i also don’t like the taste of alcohol, so i don’t drink that much either. i usually will order something fruity-tooty and ask for light alcohol. if i feel like paying $8 for a smoothie.
10 – i’ve never broken a bone. the closest i came was when i was 6 and my middle finger was shut in the hinge of a door. the tip of my finger was hanging by a thread of skin and the bone was poking out (how’s that for a visual?!), but it didn’t break. now i have a slightly bent finger with a funky nail. good times.
