I'm caving in...my 25 random facts

I have been so behind, that I am now caught up on everyone's posts. So, I am following in everyone's footsteps and letting you know 25 random things about me.

25 Facts about me…

1. I met my husband through my best friend Kelly. (They secretly liked each other at first, but never told one another and she ended up getting a boyfriend and then I came along!! Ahha)

2. I always wanted to work for a landscape company when I pass them on the road, but then when it’s 100 plus outside, I change my mind.

3. I used to write poetry a lot and then stopped for some reason.

4. I hated being pregnant. Getting way too big and swollen was NOT fun for me.

5. I love being a mom! (Make sure I threw that in there after the above)

6. I secretly want to be a stay at home mom.

7. I always wanted to be a cheerleader, but I was HORRIBLE at that kind of stuff, ahah! That’s why I stuck with soccer, softball…

8. I’m very inquisitive, aka “nosey”, but I know how to mind my own business when I need to.

9. I’m not very forgiving as I tend to be very stubborn…very bad quality…I know….trying to work on this.

10. I used to steal candy when I went to the grocery store at one of those areas to where you place money in exchange for the candy? Well, I conveniently didn’t put money in the tin box and sort of walked away……….with the candy. (I don’t do this anymore…come on guys!....I was like 29 when I did this....jk, I was 30…I kid, I kid!!)

11. I hate to fold clothes, so they tend to stay in the dryer longer than usual and then I complain that all my clothes are wrinkled and don’t even get me started on the ironing…

12. I want another child, but I want them 3 or 4 years apart, but then I think about how old I am now and I don’t know if I should wait that long.

13. I tried out for American Idol in Charlotte and Clay Aiken was in the same line as me, we both didn’t make it then. He did though, the next week in Atlanta. I went to a College Football Game instead, ah!

14. I never win anything. (Man, am I sore loser)

15. I love watching Jon and Kate plus 8 with my hubby!

16. My favorite food is ….French fries. I so wished it was something a little healthier.

17. I’m allergic to raw Apples. I found this out 2 years ago. When I was eating it, my lips swelled twice the size of Angelina Jolie’s lips.. (which BTW, I can’t stand her…GO TEAM ANISTON)

18. I wished I could learn to drive a stick shift correctly.

19. I am also a Christmas fanatic. I love the music, movies and decorations…it’s not so much about the presents to me, just everything that goes along with Christmas, is what I love. I’m not saying I don’t want presents!!! That’s ludicrous!

Ok this is getting hard!!

20. I would love to open up my own business, like a coffee shop/ dessertery. (sp)

21. I think way too much about conversations even as far back as 12 years ago. Sometimes I wished I could take back something I said; because sometimes it comes out not the way I meant it to. We all have those moments I think.

22. I love playing Tennis. If I knew how much fun it was, I would have played in high school.

23. I’m left handed when I write, but I do everything else with right hand. (playing sports, cutting paper…) Weird right?

24. I attended Western Carolina University and got my degree in Communications with a concentration in Electronic Media and Advertising. (I wanted to go to Film school after that)

25. I sleep on the side of the bed that closest to the exit. (I slept on the right side of the bed at my old house and now I sleep on the left side of the bed)
