If you really knew me....

I have seen several of you play this fun little game and I thought since I have done nothing but talk about baby girl and parenthood since she was born (and a while before she was born, let's be serious), I just mix it up a little bit! Yeah, super crazy, I know! 
So here goes....
If you really knew me, you would know:

That I have a serious foot phobia...I hate feet. Hate them. 
My friends think it's funny to put their feet all over me and watch me scream and squirm. Ironically enough, I don't hate The Hubby's....they have grown on me...

I have lived in 8 states, 7 before I was 12. 
My dad wasn't in the military, he was just transferred a about every 2 years we had a "family meeting"....which always meant we were moving!

I have a slight addiction to candy....
specifically chewy and sour candy...taffy and pull & peel twizzlers are my weakness!
I'm cheap...or I like to say frugal!
Why spend $700 on a rug when you can find one just as fabulous at TJ Maxx or Target?! Same with clothes, I have those few expensive staples, but for the most part my closet it $40 or less! 
My friends are family.
I think this has a lot to do with moving so much (see above), having friends that I have been friends with since I was 12 means so much to me. They know more about me than anyone! Maybe they should be writing this....ha!

My favorite food in the whole world is french fries.
Even when I am watching what I am eating or dieting....I always say yes to "would you like fries with that?"....I mean is that even a question?!

I watch terrible TV. All of it.
Yes, I get sucked in a record it gives me something to have on in the background while I am cooking or folding laundry or whatever. If it is really terrible I will record the whole series! HA!

I love holidays...all of 'em.
It's a good excuse to have a themed party and themed outfit...ha! And to decorate the mantle! 

I love all those terrible depressing ballads.
yeah, all those cheesy, depressing pop and indie (uber depressing) ballads...I scream them out whilst driving in the car alone. can't help myself!

I had a huge crush on my hubby before we started dating.
He was dating this other girl that I knew/worked with and I always thought he was way too cool for that terrible?! Never thought I would be the one who ended up marrying him!!

One of my biggest fears in life is someone breaking in to our house while we are there....and snakes.
Hubs got me an alarm system to calm my nerves...but I still can't watch murder mysteries, dateline, csi, etc before bed...I won't sleep or I will have nightmares...or both! He loves to tease me about this...and snakes - well, come on, that is self-explanatory! 

I hate yard work.
I do it because I have to...but I hate it...and only started forcing myself a few years ago. 

I was cross-eyed when I was a baby. 
Yes, my googly eyes stuck. I had to have surgery and wore glasses until I was 13. Every time E's eyes do the googly eye thing I worry...probably a little too much.

I hate buying gas...I will ride around on fumes for days!
The Hubs hates this....worries him to death!

I can't whistle.
I have tried my whole life....and it just isn't in me.

I have a potty mouth. 
Seriously, we always joked she would come out throwing F-bombs...I have to got to clean that up before she starts talking.

I have an obsession with Target.
Okay maybe you all know this....because who doesn't?!?!?! Have an obsession, I mean!!

I have to color coordinate my closet and drawers....have to.
Which means so is E's....and I try to do The Hubs' but he doesn't play along very well...drives me nuts!

Okay...that's all I can come up with for today....did you learn something new about me?!
Now you play along so I can learn new things about all of you!! :)

Molly said...

my family always tells me the same thing, they say that the baby will come out cursing but I swear I can't help it and I don't even know why...I don't cuss at work or when i'm around someone I know I shouldn't BUT when I'm at home talking to family or friends, it just comes out so naturally
