About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Getting to Know Me.. better

We've been friends for awhile, haven't we?

Let's see if I can surprise you.:)

-I drink my milk with ice cubes. Ice cold!
-I will not buy or give a book that has been opened.
To me, it is no longer new.
-I love reality TV. Survivor and Amazing Race rock!
-I am certified to scuba dive. Part of my qualification
dive was in a quarry and I had to swim through
an old sunken bus.
-I hate roller coasters.
-Clowns are freaky. Shudder.
-I do my own manicures. The last "professional"
one that I had was the night before my wedding.
I ended up passing out.
-I pushed a dandelion up my nose when I was little.
Guess it smelled good.:)
-I have arachnophobia.
-Quite a few times I have been mistaken for Amy Grant.
-I take words and say them backwards in my head.
llA eht emit.
-I don't like coffee at. all. But I am a huge fan of Starbucks.
-Black licorice smells and tastes horrid.

Tell me something I don't know about you!

Lori this is a GREAT post... I still sleep with TWO blankets... They are both named Night-Night... I have had a Night-Night since birth, not the same one of course they wear out, so I have to break new ones in and it takes YEARS hence, the two Night-Nights... True story...

This is so hard. I think you know most things about me! Maybe you don't know about my love of horses! From being aged 12-16 years, I spent most of my free time helping a friend with a rare type of horse that she was breeding. Aother girl and I would help to care for them and show then in local horse shows. I loved every minute.
I have never had a problem with clowns! A local restaurant here had a Charlie Chalk character and all the kids would hide when he appeared. They got rid of him because he was too scary and they got Brewster Bear instead. Some kids are scared of the bear too!

We really are sisters...I don't drink milk anymore but when I did I had to have ice in it!
I stuck a bean up my nose, it rotted-My mom kept saying, "what is that smell?" LOL! I know, too much info...Anyway, I had to have my nose cauterized. That wasn't fun...
Gotta go put baby down for a nap~♥

Oh Lori, this is kinda fun!! I HATE mushrooms! I won't eat ANYTHING that has them in it! I use to be in band from 5th-12th grade. I played a clarinet. I never knew til I married Sim I was considered a nerd!! He told me!! LOL I am so afraid of heights!! I've tried working on that one, just can't kick it!! I was a bank teller and it was my most favorite job I ever had!! I am an only child. This one you might know, I am very flighty, and blonde, and it has followed me all of my life. I don't mean to mess things up either. Sim will say "what have you done now Fran.?" Kaitlin just says "oh Mom" and shakes her head!! Well, thanks for letting me share. I learned alot about you too. But I think clowns are cute!! XO Fran.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't do "professional" manicures--it gives me the hee-bee-gee-bees! I can see the resemblance between you and Amy! I've always been a BIG fan! ;)
My dad loves black licorice. Once I found a bag of just black licorice and sent it to him--my mom was less than thrilled, since it smells horrid!!
I'm slightly terrified of cats, although I try not to let them know!

I add big numbers by rounding &/or subtracting
(I had a stalker years ago so) I take different routes home all the time.
I wear long flannels year round...even if its 110 degrees outside
My hair isn't naturally red

I have a beautiful stainless steel sink that I wipe out dry every single time I use it. I know a sink is supposed to stay wet, but not mine. My sink looks brand new and is spotless every single day. My husband hates it, but that's one of my weirdness things.

sara said...

Hilarious! The dandelion thing :)

I loved this list :)

Oh too funny Lori! Lillebeth told me that you were annoyed at the clown getting in their picture! lol

I LOVE roller coasters but am scared to death of heights. Not sure what that is about. I guess as long as I'm moving and I know the ride will be over in 60 seconds? Kevin made me go to the top of the Sears Tower and I didn't like looking out the windows. Same thing in the St. Louis Arch... although I never told him that both experiences were awful!

I do my own manis too... but only b/c I don't have the time (or money) to waste on having someone else do it. I mean, where can I get them done at 2:00 am the night before I'm supposed to leave, right? Besides, I'm really anal about how my nails are shaped, and even when I do have someone else do a manicure, I always ask to file them myself. So why bother anymore. K bought a parafin wax bath for me so now I can have a mani whenever I want :o)

I won't share any of my weird OCD issues. You might not want to be friends with me anymore! talk soon- Alexis
