Brennan just discovered that my birthday is coming up, so he is telling everyone that I will be "28 on 31". (His wording, not mine.) Since I will be in LA and might not be blogging during the holidays, I decided to use NaBloPoMo as the opportunity to share 28 things about myself.

  1. My hair has always been blonde, but it is getting darker and that freaks me out.
  2. I want to learn how to cut my boys hair, but I am too cheap and nervous to buy a pair of clippers and try it.
  3. I have a Keloidal scar on my chest, from what I haven't a clue.
  4. My favorite food is spaghetti, with oatmeal cookies a close second.
  5. I love to sing in the car to the radio, and I'd really like to sing in a choir (if our ward had one), but I am too embarrassed because I can't really sing well.
  6. I won a $2000 shopping spree when I was 16 and got to go on a trip to Hollywood, CA.
  7. Tattoos freak me out. So does fingernail polish on the finger nails.
  8. When I was in first grade my family was moving from Maryland to Louisiana. I went to Louisiana early (b/c of school) and lived with my grandparents. While there, my uncle dropped me as he was holding me up high in the sky and I still have a chipped/slightly discolored tooth because of it.
  9. I really miss my friends. Yesterday I watched Chuck and Larry and got teary eyed when A.Sandler went clothes shopping with the lawyer. It reminded me of a trip I made with one of my friends to Alabama and we tried on a bunch of clothes at The Limited. I miss tons of things about all of you, and it makes me super sad that I don't have this awesome group anymore.
  10. I wish I could decorate cakes like my mom.
  11. I'd rather watch movies at home then in a theater.
  12. I took Japanese in high school, hardly remember any of it now, and wish I'd paid better attention.
  13. I was salutitorian and can't even spell it.
  14. My most prized possessions are my scrapbooks and my black pea coat.
  15. I am terrified of the winter that is fast approaching.
  16. Bart and I dated only a few weeks before we were engaged. We were friends for 7 months before he even asked me out. Oh, and I was 19 when I got engaged, and turned 20 20 days after I got married. (Young, dumb, yep, but I'd still marry the crazy fool!)
  17. The day after we "unofficially" got engaged, I went on a cross country trip with two other guys. (not Bart)
  18. I am a terrible snowboarder.
  19. Don't let all the complaining fool you. I really do love being primary president.
  20. I wish my house looked like it came out of Pottery Barn, and I wouldn't mind if my home was on any HGTV makeover show.
  21. One day, I will be the "breadwinner".
  22. I have blue eyes, big feet, and a mole under my right eye.
  23. My alma mater is LSU. I graduated with a degree in Secondary Education, taught one year, then "retired" when I had Brennan.
  24. I want my children to behave as respectable southern gentleman.
  25. My favorite movie is Sweet Home Alabama.
  26. I am not a huge pet fan, even though we have a dog.
  27. I hate baths but love showers.
  28. I want for my family to be happy and successful in all they do and I worry that my children might not choose the perfect paths to happiness as they grow older.

7 Words to brighten my day:

Does fingernail polish on other people freak you out? I always think I'd like to get a manicure but when I do, it only lasts a day before it chips. I just do too much with my hands. I do love a good pedicure though.
Speaking of tattoos, I wanted one once when I was a teenager- thank goodness I grew out of that phase. They look look okay on other people but I just cringe when I think how they'll look when they're 80 with a tattoo on their boob. Definitely not a sexy visual picture!

Happy early 28th. I turned 28 this year too, but I can't ever remember my age when people ask. I enjoyed your 28 facts! Good luck with this winter. I'm the world's worst driver in snow.

Hey, I'm with you on #13!

Happy early birthday! I was surprised at how much of your stuff I already knew but then I remembered that we practically grew up together. It caused me to stop and reflect on the good ol' days at VHS, freeze-outs in Sis. Ackley's car, the "haunted library" at the Ferriday branch, etc.

SO, I've always wondered about the scar, but felt it would be rude to ask. Now I know. Maybe I shouldn't tell you this, but I have two tattoos and REALLY want more.

Doesn't Bart have like 3 tattoos?

Um... about your blog title...
We decorated for Christmas on the
7th because we already celebrated Thanksgiving on the 4th. I think we gave due attention to both the pilgrims AND the Indians. So there.
(You know I'm kidding of course)
