25 Things About Me

I was reading through some things on my computer and found my "25 Things About Me" note that I posted on facebook in January. So I'm posting it on here. You, as the reader, fall into two categories and I have detailed instructions for you:

If you've already read this, you can
a. read it again
b. not read it again
c. eat a snack

If you haven't read this already, you can
a. read it
b. read it and eat a snack

Aren't I nice, giving you choices? Anyway, moving along..... I'm surprised all of these are still true- 7 months later!

1. I was saved because I saw the sun streaming through the clouds and I thought that heaven must look sometime like that and I knew God must have created all of it. I still have soul searching moments whenever I see a beautiful sky. I love window seats in airplanes and seem to not be able to stop staring out the window thinking about how Jesus saved me and how awesome heaven is going to be. It also makes me remember how small I really am. And why I am really on this earth. Like I said, MAJOR soul searching.

2. I love my house and the home my husband and I are making it. It will be so wonderful someday to fill it with the pitter patter of tiny feet, the music created by tiny hands, and to hear tiny voices call me "mommy".

3. I love purple because my mom brainwashed me.

4. I love junk food and will never give it up. Never. It's my new rule.

5. I listen to 89.5 every morning on the radio on the way to school.

6. I married my high school sweetheart and am in love with him.

7. I have dessert after dinner and snack before bed.

8. I love playing the piano. I'm a "notes on a page" kind of girl and wish I could fake like my sister and dad. I love singing and wish I could really SING.

9. I create stupid songs about everything the minute Dan gets home. I sing about dinner, cleaning, and whatever else comes up. I think it's because when I'm with him, my heart bursts with song. Corny, I know, but I really have a song in my heart whenever I am with him.

10. My husband thinks I'm funny. My mom thinks my husband thinking I'm funny is funny....because I'm really not.

11. I want my hair short when it's long and long when it's short.

12. I have wanted to teach since I was in kindergarten. I used to buy books and beg my brother to let me play teacher on him. I have over 500 children books.

13. Someday, I want to have a girl and name her Ava. I also want to have a Lily or Ella. And a Jack(son).

14. I love biking and wish I could bike more.

15. I love music. Any kind, anywhere. I find joy in all kinds of music. I owe my love of music to my parents, who pushed me through the hard years of "wanting to quit". Playing piano is now such a big part of who I am.

16. My brother and I played McDonalds before they actually made a McDonalds play set. We used to play amusement park too. And a lot of other fun things. I miss those times.

17. I really enjoy simple pleasures- my easy chair, ice-cream, freshly washed towels and sheets, new socks, inspiring fabric, thunderstorms, cookie dough found at the bottom of the freezer....

18. I am a worrier. About everything. My goal for this year is to surrender this part of who I am to the One I am striving to become more like every day.

19. I'm quickly realizing that surrendering is hard. I wrote a song about it. I play/sing it when I feel like I'm starting to worry. I sing it at least once a day. Like I said, surrendering is hard.

20. I am an aspiring sewer. I want to make purses and animals and quilts. I find joy in the doing and it is actually a calming experience, despite my perfectionist heart.

21. I had a pet rat named snowball. Dad killed him because he forgot to feed him. I didn't find out until I was twenty-two.

22. I love doing my devotions with a cup of tea. I wish I had time to do that more. Rather, I wish I made more time. We do what's important to us, right?

23. I was Cinderella my senior year. One of the top 10 best experiences of my life...even though it was in a really hard time of my life.

24. I appreciate my friends, family, and husband. I don't really enjoy being alone and feel safe when I'm with the people I love.

25. I love coupon shopping. When the receipt comes out of the machine, I get a thrill when I saved a lot of money.

So there you go. If you've never done this, I suggest you do! I guarantee it's fun, saves time, and saves money! (oh wait- that was the promise on a juice processor I almost bought....) Anyway, I guarantee it's fun, people learn things about you and you might even learn something about yourself!!
