Blog Challenge 2012- Day 1

In hopes of trying to post something every day, I've decided to participate in another blog challenge. Hopefully this will motivate me if I have a topic to write about! :)

Day 1: List 20 random facts about yourself.

Okay, I've done this a lot of times, but I know I have some new followers, so I apologize for the ones that are repeats. :) I tried to think of some new ones.

1. I would love to play a dead body on CSI or some other crime show. I can't act, but I figure a dead body wouldn't have to worry about speaking lines.

2. I didn't attend my first major league baseball game until I was 17 years old (I grew up in Austin). My youth pastor took me to Houston to see a game between the Houston Astros and the Atlanta Braves. Steve Avery was pitching that day. I actually had a sign that said "I skipped school to see Steve Avery." :)

3. I don't like milk. Now, I like chocolate milk and I put milk on my cereal, but I don't like the taste of regular milk.

4. When I was a teenager, I signed a True Love Waits commitment card.

5. I loathe the game of Monopoly. It goes back to when I was a kid and had to play it for hours on end. I can't stand it now. Please don't ask me to play, I won't do it.

6. My hair is naturally curly, but I usually straighten it.

7. I didn't learn to ride a bike until I was 11 years old.

8. I have 20 nieces and nephews. I am also the great-aunt to four adorable great-nephews (and another great-nephew or great-niece is on their way this fall).

9. I don't like Starbucks. Granted, I don't like coffee, but I don't really care for any of Starbucks drinks. I have issues spending that much money on a beverage.

10. I hate it when people say "wow, you are really tall." I'm 5'8, I don't consider that "really tall". And yes, I like wearing high heels, so deal with it. :)

11. Not counting the time when I was a baby, I didn't fly in a plane until I was 21.

12. When I was in high school, I dislocated my knee playing soccer. 

13. I don't eat pie or cake. 

14. I'm a wannabe tornado chaser.

15. When I was 10 years old, I sang on stage with Christian recording artist Sandi Patty. Please note I didn't say I sang WELL. :)

16. My favorite dwarf from Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs is Dopey. This might explain my whole "ear obsession" (I have friends who know what I'm talking about).

17. I was assistant editor of my college newspaper.

18. My favorite actor is Dick Van Dyke and in the past year I have seen him act, sing, and dance live and in person. Not too many people get to say that about their favorite actor! :)

19. I was the only child in my family who was able to attend elementary, middle school, and high school all in the same town. My other siblings were moved around a lot when they were younger.

20. I have a bad case of stage fright. The thought of speaking to a crowd of people by myself makes me sick to my stomach.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!



  1. You're not going to give a speech at the wedding?? Lol. Just kidding. I didn't know about Dopey, but it makes TOTAL sense. Hahaha

  2. Oh, I'm doing this. :)

    No pie or cake? I'm not sure we can be friends ;-0 Oh wait. That leaves more for me - we can totally be friends! HaHa. It wasn't my first game, but I went to Houston to see the Braves play too! I was a huge Braves fan back when they had such dominant pitching. Very cool about Dick Van Dyke.

  4. Oh, and I'm with you on 3, 4, and 5.

    My hair is curly, but I don't straighten it.

    I'm also 5'8" and don't like that comment.

    I like cake, but not pie.

    I used to love Sandi Patty.

  5. No cake or pie!? Oh you are missing out! I didn't know about #4 - good for you for doing what you believe!

  6. So in love of this! do you wanna follow each other?:X

  7. I love this blog challenge too! Great idea!

    Im not a Milk fan either. The smell of it makes me want to vomit. I have to hold my breath if I get it for my hubby at the store. I even put water on my cereal! NO MILK! HAHA I love to see that other people are disgusted by Milk too!

  8. #1 - I hate milk too...I can drink chocolate milk & if I ate cereal, I would put it on my cereal...and I like it in my coffee...but to just drink a glass of milk??? YUCK!

    #2 - No pie or cake??? How do you survive??? ;)

    I'm going to do this blog challenge thing...because you know without it, my blog will just sit there...not updated...for even longer! :)

  9. I have been following you now for at least a year and smiled all the way through this- I knew some of it but was surprised at some! I don't like coffee either and totally agree that a beverage shouldnt cost $5! And I love number 4!
