11 Random Facts About Me
1. I am a singer. I sing in the car, I sing to my nuggets and I sing to Handsome Husband. I can usually connect the oddest situations to a song. I recorded a Bruce Springsteen song to surprise Handsome Husband for the our first dance. I love Queen and anything by them.
2. I am OCD about the most random things...I ALWAYS have clean clothes in a laundry basket (or piled on the floor) but I hate it when Handsome Husband doesn't push in the chairs around the dining room table or doesn't put the dishes away the way I think it should be done. I also can't have messy papers. If I mess up on something I am writing (in pen or marker) I will always start over. My coworkers make fun of me for it A LOT!
3. I am obsessed with Post-It Notes. I have an entire pouch stashed in my teacher bag filled with them. I have them in apple shapes, hearts, stars; big, lined ones and all different colors. I made my stinking plan book out of them for heaven's sake!
4. I have a thing for really bad movies and sequels. I judge whether or not I'm going to like a movie by the bad reviews the critics give.
5. I LOVE to make whipped cream. I will bake something just so I can make some.
6. I became a beer snob after visiting Germany. I went a Bud Light lover and left a craft beer fan. I love me a cold Bell's Oberon.
7. The first time I watched P. S. I Love You I started crying 5 minutes in and continued to cry for the rest of the movie.
8. I love devouring a great book (with a glass of wine or without) but I don't get a lot of time to read during the school year. I usually read a book a day during the summer. (I'm a bit of a speed reader.)
9. I never wear matching socks...ever.
10. I will stay up late to watch Criminal Minds and CSI no matter how tired I am.
11. I have a M.A.J.O.R. scarf obsession. My favorite place to get scarves (and jewelery!!!) is at the farmer's market at Ali Oesch's booth. I spend WWWAAAYYY too much here. Handsome Husband knows that ANYTHING from her is worth it. I always know when he goes because he tells me that she and her mom said, "Hi!." I can usually go through her website and say, "Yup...I've got that and that and that and that and that..." :-)
1. Where did you grow up? I grew up on the East coast and in the Midwest. I lived in Massachusetts until I was 5, Maine until I was 10 and then Indiana.
2. If you could live anywhere where would it be? I L.O.V.E. Maine. I think it's the hills and trees.
3. What is on your DVR at all times? Bones, CSI, Criminal Minds, Walking Dead, How I Met Your Mother (It seems like I would have a lot of time on my hands but I truly don't!)
4. What are two things on your bucket list? Visit all the Major League Baseball parks at least once
5. Where can you usually be found doing on the weekends? Do teachers get weekends??? I usually spend Friday night catching up on the DVR with Handsome Husband, Saturday with friends, and Sunday at church and with my folks.
6. What's your favorite hobby? I love to sing and read. I can't pick the one I love more. If I could sing and read at the same time I would be one happy girl...now if only my dad the preacher would condone crocheting while he preaches.
