Hold Onto Your Seats... 25 Things About Me!

Oh, Facebook, I don't really like you...
although my nosy-self can't seem to just make the plunge and delete you...
so I am going to post my "25 Things" on my blog...
take that!

1. I can clap with one hand - try it - it's harder than you think!
2. I am a card-carrying member of the Creek Nation...even though I am blond with blue eyes...
3. I played Division II volleyball in college...Colorado Christian University
4. I played volleyball very competitively from Junior High to High School...where I played on a Junior National Team...and traveled all over the states.
5. After being married for 3 months...I moved to Germany with my new husband...don't recommend that.
6. My husband played on a professional basketball team in Germany...but due to bad knees...he does not play for the Denver Nuggets...but could...I'm his biggest fan.
7. I have taught 2nd grade for 4 years...and 3rd grade for 1 year...I like 3rd grade the best.
8. One of my current pet peeves is when girls that are my age...or me "sweetie" or "honey"
9. I have a "Life List"
10. My hubby and I have traveled all over the place...Italy, Hawaii, Mexico...but my favorite is Switzerland.
11. I can quote the entire movie "Clueless"

13. I read magazines from the back to the front.
14. I am allergic to cantaloupe.
15. I do not enjoy back rubs...nope...don't like em.
16. I worked at a drive-thru coffee place all through high school.
17. I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch in college for a bit...not my proudest days.
18. There are some words that i can not stand to hear...they make me cringe...
19. I am still breastfeeding once a day...
20. I love stars..they are all over my kitty is named Star...and I would like a star tattoo.
21. I would like to be a stand-up comedian...and I think I could make it.
22. I absolutely loved High School...I was Secretary of Treasury...planned all the dances...and ruled the school...hehe
23. I don't know if I want any more kids.
24. It really bothers me when people don't site their sources...jokes...ideas...don't steal peeps!
25. I can rap almost every Salt n' Pepa song...give me the mic!

oh #8 drives me insane. I wish I wasn't a wimp and could call people out on that. I'm still trying to figure out this one handed clap. You may have to do a video demo. Love the new blog design!

#1. You can totally clap with one hand..i forgot about that. that cracks me up.
#17. Come on! Those were some good times at Abercromie! Where else can you work with 3 other roomates at the same time!
#21. You would definitely make a great stand up comedian. I would pay and laugh my head off!
P.S. Love the look of your new blog!

oh, ashley, please make a short video of you clapping with one hand!!! (it's not that i don't believe you (I DO); i'm just trying to visualize how you do it:?)
living in the south, "sweetie" and "honey" are favorite terms of endearment for people to use. i probably don't even notice it. (waitresses are big users!)
have a great weekend!!!
ps. i totally dig your new layout!!!

I am requesting a video of the one-hand clap, too!!

And I also HATE it when my age people call me honey or something like that. It is SO annoying and condescending, like they are trying to be the top dog. Ugh.

Now I am wondering how tall you are.... I am 5'2 with size 8 feet and my neice is 5'4 (but probably still growing) with size 10 feet. I am curious!!

Mark, Danielle and Asher said...

Ok, totally with you on #8 - so annoying! And what are some of the words you can't stand for #18? My least favorite...."moist"...eww. :)

Rhonda Marie said...

"There's only one true Judge and that's God, so chill and let my Father do His job"
Love you!!!
P.S. if you do post a video make sure it is "jingle bells"
