25 Random Things.

I have been procrastinating on doing a new blog post. I waited too long between posts and then just kept on procrastinating. So here's a post and maybe I'll start doing better.

I did this on facebook & thought since I spent 10 minutes on it, it needed more exposure. :)

Here are 25 random things about me. If you haven't done this in a while, I tag you to do it on your own page.

1 I am extremely obsessive compulsive. I NEVER leave the house without checking that the stove is off and that the iron is unplugged.

2 I used to think I didn't want kids, but now that I have Neely, I can't imagine my life any different or any better.

3 There are a lot of things about raising children that I said that I would never do (breastfeeding, being a stay at home mom, let the baby sleep with me, etc.) and I did them all and am proud of it

4 I love my church. It is full of people who truly love the lord and are in constant service to help others. That, my friends, it the type of church you need to belong to.

5 Grammatical errors drive me CRAZY.

6 I love to read. Everyone said that I wouldn't have time once I had a baby, but I read lots of books when she was eating and sleeping.

7 I love big family get togethers. I love all the parents, aunts, uncles & cousins all together in organized craziness.'

8 I am a chronic worrier. I don't just worry about myself, but for all the people in my life.

9 I love being a stay at home mom more than anything. Sometimes I think I might not ever get another job.

10 I love tv. WAY TOO MUCH. I especially love all reality tv, Grey's Anatomy, Bones, House, Private Practice, the list could go on & on

11 I would go back and do college all over again.

12 I would NEVER go back to high school to do that over again.

13 I have had freckles my entire life & always hated them until I became an adult.

14 For years, I got my hair cut and colored every 4 weeks. Now I am lucky to only get it cut 4 times a year.

15 I believe every recipe could be a little better if you add either cream cheese or eagle brand milk :)

16 The new hobby that I have begun working on again is sewing. I have so many plans for things I am going to make.

17 I am so happy to have such wonderful parents. I hope in 25 years, Neely and I have the same type of relationship. Just without the teenage years.

18 I am secretly scared to have a second child, because I think there is no way that I could love another child as much as I love Neely.

19 I would like to start exercising, but can never get motivated. I don't want to run a marathon, but I would like to be able to go up a flight of stairs without being winded.

20 I think having a few WONDERFUL friends is much better than having a hundred acquaintances. It makes me sad that most of my wonderful friends don't live here.

21 We have 2 dogs that we got before we had Neely. I said that I would keep loving them the same after Neely came. I don't.

22 I love to travel. We did this a lot before we had Neely. Now, not so much.

23 My biggest regret in life is not finishing my PhD. I am hoping to fix this someday.

24 I am lucky to have found a husband who loves me despite all my inadequacies.

25 I love Jesus! I try to live life according to the bible, but to be honest, I struggle everyday.

Enjoyed your list! Maybe I'll try it soon. Hey, I think I might have seen you at the mall this past weekend and afer I passed you I thought I think that was Amanda Vestal. So sorry if that was you. I am just now able to get Kinley out in public and still learning how to get a stoller and baby out of the car in the cold weather, diaper bag, blankets, etc. so I was a little frustrated as I walked into the mall. I know it will get easier the more I get out and about.
