25 random things

There's a note tag going around facebook for 25 random things about yourself. I thought I'd post mine here too.

1. I am sooo ready to get out of Rexburg and be in the real world.

2. According to my husband, I talk in my sleep almost every night.

3. I have run a 1/2 marathon and I have goals to complete a 26.2 and a triathlon.

4. Aside from my husband and daughter, the coolest people in the world to me are my parents and siblings. I will always look up to all of them and basically any tiny, little thing they do is amazing to me. My oldest brother just became a Major in the Air Force! How awesome is that?!

5. My favorite food is pretzels.

6. My favorite drink is milk.

7. My favorite ice cream is Breyers' Mint Chocolate Chip. Ben & Jerry's Magic Brownies is a close second.

8. I want a dog.

9. When I was younger, I stepped on a nail while I was playing in the woods next to our house. It went straight through my keds and into my foot.

10. My brother, Abe, shut my finger in our bathroom door. I was yelling at him to get out of the bathroom and he opened the door to tell me no and when he shut the door I put my hand in to stop it and it smashed my finger.

11. My brother, Ez, knocked out my front baby tooth with his head when I was trying to get a blanket off his head.

12. My sister, Emmi, used to quiz me on all of her friends' names. She would take their school pictures out and show them to me and I would have to say their names, sometimes if I said their nicknames I got extra points. I thought that was the coolest thing ever!

13. My siblings used to tell me I was adopted when I was little. Once my brother, Zach and I were fighting and he pretended to call the adoption agency on the phone to come and get me. I ran to the couch and was kicking and screaming saying that they couldn't take me. My mom had to sooth me by telling me that she had a scar on her belly from my birth (C-section).

14.I have never broken a bone.

15. My first car was a Chrysler New Yorker with blue velour interior. Her name was Meda.

16. My second car was a Mazda Millenia that smelled like smoke!

17. I have met Paula Abdul and I have her autograph.

18. I have a dream to be on Extreme Makeover Home Edition and be one of the helpers!

19. My dad and I used to have a goal of getting a big 18 wheeler and driving around the country. We were going to paint 'Dad & Ab' on the truck.

20. My mom and I have a bunch of different voices that we talk to each other in. It's our thing.

21. I have skipped part of a 10k with my sister-in-law, Kelly.

22. My favorite movie is Steel Magnolias.

23. I have really bad skin. Especially on my face and head.

24. If my husband didn't make fun of me for it. I would wear men's deodorant all the time. It works better and it smells great!

25. I can wiggle my ears.

What do you mean you have bad skin on your face? Are you thinking dry? I don't get it. And how long has your favorite movie been Steele Magnolias? I never knew that.

I removed my previous post because I misunderstood the meaning of "skipped." I thought you meant you somehow shortened the distance, so I said Kelly was a bad influence. Ginet assured me that by "skipped" you meant skipped like what you do to express glee or joy. In either event I'm still not sure Kelly is a good influence.

Katie, to answer your questions. I don't know that I have ever been without a blemish on my face, and I have chronic dandruff. My skin is just really sensitive. I think that Steel Magnolias became my favorite movie when we were in high school. I just love it!

Zach, Ginet is right. Kelly and I were skipping (glee or joy) during the Peachtree. We were really crazy that year. We ate the donuts that the cheerers passed out (bad cramps), we ran under all of the fire hoses, etc. It was fun though.
