The light inside

Thursday, October 25, 2007


Tuesday was my 27th birthday... So in honor of that I am listing 27 things you might not know about me:

1. My siblings once told me I was adopted, and I completely believed them.
2. I have broken three bones.
3. I've had three different surgeries. (Only one of #2 and #3 correlate.)
4. I am incredibly intimidated when I go to the doctor's office. (Although it is getting better as my wonderful buy goofy husband gets closer to being one of those.)
5. I don't really enjoy visiting other countries that much. I'm really quite happy as a homebody.
6. Once one of my biggest fears was that God would have me fall in love with a man who's life goal was to be a missionary...
7. In the sixth grade I was told by my teachers that I should have a career as a public speaker.
8. I was a youth ministry intern for two summers, and my youngest kids are now seniors in high school. (That will make you feel old!)
9. I didn't have a checking account until I enrolled in college.
10. I didn't have a cell phone until I was a sophomore in college.
11. I have an incredible gift for sleeping and going to sleep. It takes me almost no time, and I am rarely effected by anything (pregnancy, etc.)
12. I once told my pastor that my spiritual gift was sleep. He did not find that humorous.
13. I have two 1" scars on my right arm, that I got from my track cleats while I was long jumping.
14. I played soccer for 13 years, and quit my senior year of high school.
15. I've only kissed three boys, including my husband.
16. My first real kiss was in the fourth grade. (I know it's scandalous.)
17. God's plans never seem to align with mine. (If they did I would be single and teaching in New York's inner city right now.)
18. God and modern medicine have saved my life twice.
19. I've had a blood transfusion.
20. It is for people like that they have pre-made teacher kits and bulletin boards.
21. I hate long awkward pauses in group discussions. I will answer questions way too much just to avoid these.
22. I once chased my brother around the house with a butcher knife. (Yes, I had the full intent to hurt him.)
23. I have a large temper.I am getting better at controlling it, but I'm sure my family has quite a few stories.
24. Justin planned at least as much of our wedding, and has probably done more of Elizabeth's baby book than me. I'm just not crafty.
25. My favorite movie is Vivacious Lady. You've probably never heard of it, and won't find it in your local video store. But it is a Jimmy Stewart classic!
26. I think I've only owned and used three hair products in my life (besides shampoo and conditioner). Hairspray (thank you 1992), gel, and my new favorite the smoothing creme!
27. what you see of my front six top teeth are fake. My real teeth are really small so the dentist added to them so that they look normal.
