I guess I will finally "get with it" & try to play this little game. My twin sister BECKY had this on her blog, so I thought I would play along. Okay, so 16 things you may not know about me....

1. I'm a ditz. I mean, I know I'm smart...but I'm a little bit of an airhead. Sometimes when I am talking with someone about something specific & something else pops in my head, if I don't get it out right then & there I feel like I'll explode. I used to take meds for ADD, but I didn't like them. So, maybe I am a little bit of a blonde ditz with a mix of ADD! Tee-hee-hee... I think my twin sister is a little bit of the same way. (Or maybe worse. Sorry Becky) I mean, she was the one that got the award in college for being the most naive (or something like that).

2. I play World of Warcraft...a lot. I married a complete NERD & he got me started playing WoW. Please don't start playing this's totally addictive. I need to stop playing this game & get into the gym, but I'm so tirrrrreeeeddd!!!! **whine**

3. I love reality TV shows. I have totally forgotten what TV was like before there was reality tv? Some of my favs are "The Hills", "The City", "The Bachelor", "Jon & Kate + 8", "The Biggest Loser", etc.

4. I really miss the way I used to look back when I was in college. I used to work out all the time & I was so fit! I think I linger on what "was" & for some reason I'm having a really hard time getting myself motivated to get back into working out like I used to. I know I talk about it way to much to my husband, but I need him to do it with me. It's not easy being married for me & eating healthy. Those 2 things just haven't meshed well in my life since getting married over 4 years ago. I hope 2009 is our year to change this around.

5. My sister shared in her tag that we were both born very premature. When I was around 11 months old I had a seizure & then they found out I had "hydrocephalus" (fluid around the brain). I then had to have a ventricular shunt put inside my head. This tube drains the fluid from around my brain into my stomach. I wouldn't be alive without it. We both are so blessed to be alive today.

6. I was born in Germany and would love to go back someday that is my dream. (I share this same one as my sister!)

7. I love having a twin, you already know this, but honestly it is the best thing because I've always had a BEST friend in Becky and we just share a bond like no one else. (okay, I share this one too!) But, I also want to add that the movie that best describes us is "Romy & Michelle's High School Reunion"...UHHH!

8. I think I have a serious addiction to chocolate. I sometimes find myself in the car driving out just to get a chocolate fix. This has been really hard the past few weeks b/c we started Weight Watchers. I have made due with my Jell-O & fudge bars. I hope they hold strong!

9. I have major stress and anxiety issues. (I also share this with Becky) I feel like nobody understands this like my sister does. But, I think we both worry about what other people think of us to much & it causes us to stress & be anxious. I will admit that Becky is probably the "sweeter" of the two of us. She is very submissive & wants to please everybody. I am not that way. I can be stubborn & hard-headed. Little things get to me easily & I like to be in control. I think that's why we get along so well :) "BECKY SIT!" (just kidding) But, we both have loving hearts & like to help others.

10. I'm not sure I really have a favorite color. Growing up it was always pink, but I like so many colors. Lately, my favorite color has been PURPLE.

11. I feel really lonely living in Las Vegas sometimes. I really miss my family & friends back home, but I think experiencing a new place is good for me. My husband & my dogs are my best friends here. I hope that sometime in the future I will meet a good girlfriend to do things with.

12. I have had a nose job. (not because I WANTED one though) When I was about 17 years old I lifted the attic ladder down from the ceiling & it hit me head on into the bridge of my nose. Having that surgery was the worst pain I've ever been in & my nose is STILL crooked! Argghh!

13. I have dreams of having kids someday & baking them cookies & making hot chocolate for them on a cold snowy day. Any bets on that happening while I'm living in Las Vegas? Even though we did have a dust of snow for a few hours this winter!

14. I bite my nails. Its a bad habit & I get it from my dad.

15. I cannot do a cartwheel & I've never been able to...EVER.

16. I love getting massages, but I hate giving them. Who isn't like that though? I'm lucky b/c my husband will usually rub my feet a few times a week. He is a "touchy-feely" person & I'm not. Nothing seems to gross him out, but it does me! I feel so lucky to have met a man like Jason :) He is my angel.


I wanna tag Summer Brown & Nicole Wood!! Ya'll don't have to do it if you don't want to ;)


  1. I feel like I know my blog friends so much better at times that my real friends, esp after posts like this one! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Very interesting to read!!

    #9 - I'm a lot like you, I think. I don't understand how Becky can be sooo sweet all the time. Haha.
