1. My husband and I have been together for 13 years. We met his senior year of high school.
2. I LOVE to bake! I don't like cooking, but I will make you any dessert you want. Unfortunately I am also addicted to eating them.....
3. I am starting a weight loss program in a desperate attempt to lose weight. I bought the 6 Week Body Makeover from an infomercial. I have about 125 lbs to lose.
4. I love to watch the corny "teenage" shows. Secrete Life of the American Teenage, Pretty Little Liars, and Make it or Break it.
5. I went and got a pedicure last Friday just to have an hour to myself. I went shopping afterwards because I was enjoying my alone time and wasn't ready to head back to mommy world yet...

1. I played clarinet in band, but switched to trombone for marching band.
2. I look just like my Dad, minus the facial hair and balding.
3. There has been a dog in my family for all of my life. Sam (Doberman, got rid of her when my sister was a baby because Sam got mean around her), Oreo (Mutt - Black Lab and German Shepard mix), Hudson (Chesapeake Bay Retriever), and now Toby (Miniature Schnauzer).
4. I had no idea what I wanted to go to college for. I got a full ride scholarship for a Computer Science and Engineering degree partnership program that just started at my local community college so I figured I'd try it for free. Turns out I met my DH in the program and I actually liked it. So here I am now, a web programmer.
5. I had my foot stepped on by my best friend's horse when I was 14. Never got it checked out, but I'm pretty sure I have a bone out of place because it kind of sticks out of the top of my foot a little bit, lol.

What hard work! What are you planting?

1. I chose my career from the results of a career aptitude test I took in the 8th grade.

2. I am of Lebanese decent (I am half - my dad is full) and grew up in a town called Lebanon.

3. I get anxiety over anything big and vast - big planes, big ships, big bodies of water, outer space, depths of the ocean...

3. I hate to ask people for help - I moved into our house while my husband was away and did it all alone with only a cart and an empty mini van... the only thing my brother-in-law helped me with was our washer and dryer, king size mattress and big screen tv.

4. I always greet and leave relatives with a hug and kiss.

5. I have never had a birthday party (unless you count my wedding).

1. I have an uncle who is 2 years younger than me.

2. I'm a pescetarian. I wish I could go full vegetarian but I love seafood too much.

3. I'm terrified of most everyone's driving, except my own, due to a car accident I was in when I was 16.

4. I love animals (probably more than people) and would like to find the resources to be an activist for them.

5. Ever since I was a small child I've felt like I'm very different from everyone else and don't know why. Maybe I'm an alien??

1. I went to catholic school from grades 7-12 and I was raised lutheran

2. I LOVE cheese and DH hates it so a least a couple nights a week we make dinner for ourselves. Too many of my favorite foods involve cheese.

3. I never had a dog growing up, now I have 3

4. I was diagnosed with ADHD in the 1st grade after among other things, glued my feet to the floor.

5. I am newly addicted to Nip/Tuck. We just started watching it a couple weeks ago and are already halfway through season 4. We would be further but we will only watch it together, so no watching while DH is at work.

1. I love music. I once sang the national anthem (a duet) at a MLS soccer game at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City.

2. I am completely addicted to the XM Lithium Station (34 now) that plays hard/alternative/grunge rock from the 1990s. It plays everything I listened to in high school/college.

3. DH and I traveled to Rome 2 years ago and I desperately want to go back.

4. I grew up on a farm and my dad raised cattle but I managed in the 18 years I lived at home to never assist with the birth of any calves.

5. I love all of the shows on the Travel Channel. My newest favorite is "Off Limits"

1. I am not an army brat but by the time I was 7 I had lived in 4 different countries and traveled to several others on vacation.
2. Because of this I am addicted to traveling and have contemplated becoming a travel writer. My husband was warned I would not be a cheap wife to keep entertained
3. I enrolled in teh local community college when I was 20 only to obtain an internship at the largest local radio station, I got the job and never went back to class. So I technically paid $700 in tuition so I could work a second job for free. It was a great job
4. I have been caught in quicksand.
5. When I was 21 I moved to North Carolina to help my Aunt open up a fine dining restaurant, but living in the south was too big of a culture shock for me so I left a year to the day I arrived since I promised myself that I would stay for at least a year.

1- I was a coxswain for 2 years in college. Sorta be default, I was in varsity boats both years, even though I never even saw the sport before going to college. (I even got a Letterman's jacket, which was lost in a move. Will never let DH live that one down)

2 - I got a 2nd (maybe 3rd? I can't remember now!) degree sunburn on my face when I was in middle school. We went to Florida for spring break and on the last day I spent 8+ hours in the pool. My eyes swelled shut overnight - I had to have a cold/wet wash cloth on my eyes for about 30 minutes to open them. I got some cruel nicknames when I got back to school

3 - My love/obsession for Elvis didn't start until my trip to Vegas in 2005. I always liked him before, but seeing 1 specific impersonator sent me into a tizzy. My husband doesn't always help in curbing the obsession... he'll get me Elvis things and take me to shows, etc. HOWEVER, I have NOT been to Graceland (yet).

4 - My husband and I knew each other for 6 weeks before we were engaged. Though I did not say "yes" at first. 2 days later, I said yes when he re-asked me on a post-it note. However, we didn't get married til almost 2 years later.

5 - For the few of you that are old enough to maybe know this story - I was AT the water ski show at Sea World Ohio where the boat "jumped" into the audience. Fortunately, we were no where near the place where the boat landed, but it was scary. I didn't take any pictures out of respect of the people/situation. Fortunately, no one died. Last summer, this story was on a TV show. (like the "I shouldn't be alive" type shows)

Thanks SavaAngel for my wonderful signature!

1. DH and I have been together for 10 years this coming August and married for 3.5 years. Our siblings used to tease that we would get married (in 6th grade) but we hated each other and he was so mean he used to make me cry on my walk home after the bus....

2. I have never not had a dog. Even when I was an RA in college I let my residents "sneak" dogs on to the floor so I could get my fix. We even had a lab living down the hall for 3 weeks that the "up tops" never know about....

3. I used to dread working out but now I love it and how I feel after. Plus, it's my sanity break from the kids.

4. I grew up on a farm and all of my family were farmers. One of my Grandfathers bred thoroughbred race horses. It really irks me when people criticize horse racing because I have seen first hand how well taken care of those horses are...

5. I went to private school until 3rd grade when my Mom decided she wanted me to go to school with boys and have all the experiences she didn't have growing up (she went to the same all girls private school) like football games, dances, ect

Thank you Babydoll213 for my awesome siggy

2. I love to eat food so much that I wake up thinking of what I am going to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
3. I sometimes can't stop thinking about homeless people when I see them on the side of the road but I don't know what to do about it.
4. My favorite color is green.
5. Tomorrow I am resigning from my teaching position and I am scared to death.
