Random facts on this terrific Thursday!

I've seen this on many other blogs and thought I'd give it a shot. Here's 25 random facts you didn't know about me:

1. I’ve always wanted to go on a mission’s trip. That’s always been on my heart and I truly believe I will be able to one day.

2. Don’t laugh but I have a Chihuahua named Taco, lol. It was around that time Taco bell came out with the Chihuahua in their commercials, obviously. The poor dog, I’m sure he’d rather remain nameless, ha :o)

3. Back in 2005 I flew out to California to meet a pen pal that I had ever since 3rd grade. What an experience, but sadly we have lost touch since then. Reason and season for everything I guess!

4. I still live in the same city (Leesburg, FL) where I was born and raised…. (my long 24 years of existence that is, ha)

5. Ummm, sad to say but I’ve been in more car accidents then I care to recall…. Drive with me at your own risk! JK! Just remember to wear the seatbelt!

6. I really wish I had a greater love and passion for sports, and maybe that’s because I have no athletic ability whatsoever, good thing you don’t need it to watch sports, haha. But nonetheless this is my wish, lol.

7. I’ve never gotten a speeding ticket. (Guess I made up for that with my accidents.) Watch, I totally just messed myself up. This will be the big news of the day tomorrow, you just wait and see, ha!

8. I’m the middle child and would all you other middle children agree that we get the short end of the stick?

9. This is kind of random (which I guess this is the whole purpose of this thing, ha) but my pet peeve is when you’re driving along and the person in front of you has their blinker on to turn and then they leave it on for the next 10 miles until they do turn.

10. I’m notorious for getting things out and not putting it back in their rightful place and also tend to leave the dishes in the sink… I’m working on this :o)

11. My first job was Publix Grocery Store (where shopping and working is always a pleasure :o)), and now I’m at a law office where I’ve been at going on six years. Needless to say, I’ve moved on up in the world!

12. I love to people watch. Put me somewhere where there’s people and I’ll be entertained.

13. Only if you had a hidden camera you’d find that I love to sing in the car or anywhere when I’m by myself (you would sooooooo get a laugh out of that).

14. I’m a homebody, and also trying to work on that, it’s always nice to get out there and meet and greet :o)

15. In first grade on my report card I got F, F, D, and totally oblivious asked my brother if those were good grades, bless my heart. Come on now, clearly the teacher did not like me. And happy to report that I did go on to graduate high school with good grades I might add, Mrs. Stevenson.

16. I love to read so much. When I’m in a book I take myself to another place, it’s a nice escape from reality, until it comes crushing back down on you, haha!

17. Sushi is my ALL TIME, and I mean ALL TIME favorite food!!! And the funny thing is I never used to like it. Goes to show, don’t knock something till you try it, because I’m hooked for life.

18. Before I leave this earth, I kid you not, I will go skydiving. Anyone care to partake in this adventure with me??

19. I get to be in my first wedding this summer as a Bridesmaid for my wonderful and awesome friend Monica.

20. I’m addicted to Soda. Is there a support group for this??

21. My favorite TV show is Law & Order: SVU. Those people can kick some butt. The content of the story lines at times can be disheartening, but phenomenal acting.

22. I will be getting braces for the third time this month, yes, count that, three times. I might want to contact Guinness Book of World records, this might be of some interest to them, haha! And we’ll just wait and see if pictures end up in the bloggy world. I know the suspense will be killing you :o)

23. I have a tendency to want to save the world, so I kind of have a knack for stretching myself thin at times.

24. I’m learning each day to love myself (in a healthy way, haha) and be comfortable in my own skin.

25. Philippians 4:13 is on my side (my favorite verse).

So, there you have it. Hope you enjoyed learning a little more about me. Let it be known that it's not as easy as it seems to do this, haha :o) I thoroughly enjoyed my Wednesday night break from school and spent time with the family. I actually got to catch American Idol last night, can we say drama??? I love this part of the show when they are in Hollywood and then it starts getting into the good stuff.

It's almost Friday, YAY!!! :o) This week hasn't really been picture worthy, but I have a fun weekend planned, so there will definitely be some coming!!

I loved reading this!!! I'm sure if the desire is in your heart God will bring an opportunity for you to go on a mission trip! Such a great desire!

Kaitlyn said...

Oh my goodness-- we are so alike! I'm determined to do a missions trip. Somewhere, some how, it will happen! Ha, my friends hate driving with me as well. Three totaled cars in four years! Ooopss... But thus far (praise God!) I don't have speeding tickets either. I also nodded my head to 14,16, 23, and 25! This is the best 25 list I've seen so far :)

Jordan said...

Love your list! I am right with you on quite a few of them =]

Holly said...

Love it!! :)

Jacquie said...

Great list. I'm the middle kid, too, and yes, you're right! Ha! I'm a people watcher too. Love how diverse we are! Never going to eat sushi or sky dive - but, more power to ya!

If you have a heart to go on a mission trip, I'd betcha that God will provide that opportunity. He's just getting you ready!

Melissa said...

I left you something on my blog! ;)

Heather said...

I enjoyed learning more about you! I am going to post my 25 things later this week :) Have a good Friday!

Alyssa said...

My husband & I moved to Florida when we got married. We live in NW Arkansas now. It was funny when you mentioned Publix. It's all about Wal-Mart here!

Lauren said...

I loved reading this and learning more about you!
