25 Things

1) When I watch scary movies by myself, I turn the volume all the way down during the scary parts so I won't be as scared. It really works!

2) I redecorate/repaint/remodel, in my mind, most houses I visit. But then again, I've never visited a house this nice.

3) My husband knows #2 about me so whenever we leave a house we have visited, he'll ask me what I would do different. I love him for that.

4) I was once unfriended (in real life, not FB) by someone who I thought was a very close friend and even though it's been a couple of years now, it still hurts and I wonder why that happened. 

5) #4 did make me reflect on the people I let in my life. When it comes to friendships, quality is definitely better than quantity.

6) I use to be extremely shy. Taking drama class all through high school brought me out of my shell.

7) However, to this day, I can't just go up and start talking to people. I need to be approached first to open up.

8) If you were standing to the left of me and said something to me that I didn't respond to, it's not that I'm being rude. It's more likely that I didn't hear you. I am completely deaf from my left ear.

9) When I was in elementary school, I use to wear leg warmers and tape up my feet with scotch tape (we had no masking tape) to dance around the house like in the movie Flashdance. 

10) I wish I could sing like Sarah McLachlan or Norah Jones.

11) I have no idea how to teach my kids to tie their shoes so they might wear Velcro shoes for the rest of their lives. 

12) We came back early from our vacation this past summer to attend a very dear friend's wedding. It was warm and intimate making it one of the best ceremonies I've ever been to. 

13) I'm not really into playing sports but I am very competitive when it comes to games.

14) Watching the movie ET makes me crave Reese's Pieces. 

15) I always wanted a little girl to dress her up in pretty bows and have tea parties.

16) I'm an only child and when I was growing up I wanted lots of bothers and sisters.

17) I much rather stay home curled up watching a movie than go out to a party.

18) I don't like working out, even if there's a TV in front of me.

19) If I didn't have any kids, I would be one of those people that take their doggies around in strollers.

20) Most nights, I have a hard time going to sleep. Pinterest is one of the things I do to wind down.

21) Even though I'm not sure of its pronunciation, I'm obsessed with bokeh.

22) The only time I ever listen to the radio is when I'm in the car.

23) I love sushi.

24) I don't think I could ever get tired of watching my kids play with our dog.

25) About 19 years ago, I made a phone call to ask this handsome guy out. I was nervous but I couldn't wait to spend time with him again. While I was writing up this post, he called, on his way home from work, to ask me out on a date. I still can't wait to spend time with him.

UPDATE: After having a hard time coming up with 25 things, I forgot to put the very first one I thought of. I really want to include it since it's a huge part of me. So indulge me in a #26, won't you?!

26) Writing a blog has given me a new way of looking at life and I think I am a better person because of it. 
Ok, now I'm really done. Thanks for reading!

Except for the sushi, we have a lot in common. I was painfully shy as a child too. I think about 23 out of the 25 relate to me too. How fun.

this was SO fun to read and get to know you better...
i LOVE sushi. i could eat it every day if i could afford it. i also only listen to the radio in the car... i don't even have a radio in the house! i would also much rather stay home than go to a party. ET makes me want reese's pieces, too!!!! et makes them look so yummy. sawyer just learned how to tie his shoes, and chris had to teach him. :) i also wish i could sing as well as sarah or norah. and i agree that friendship is about quality hands down no doubt!!!!
i love you as you are and loved learning more! :)

Susan said...

What a great 25 things! Love the shot of ET. I am totally shy as well, and hear better in my right ear. :-) (And don't even get me started on redecorating/remodeling homes!)

Cassie Bustamante said...

yes- me, too on 26!!!! knowing all these people are reading keeps me accountable and positive! :)

Ashley said...

What lovely random things you have shared. I on the other hand think blogging has just brought me down. Maybe since I am a full time working mom that reads stay at home mom blogs (except for one). I will stop talking now to avoid a blog post in your comments! Keep blogging on for yourself!! I will keep reading :O)

I love these! We would get along so well! I always wanted to be able to sing and dance and that was too cool about #25. :)

Renee said...

Okay! We have more in common than 3 boys (I always wanted a girl for tea parties, too.) Love, sushi, was painfully shy, and agree with you about the quality of friendships thing. I loved post 25... so sweet. And, you're not that she if you actually asked him out!!!

Karrie said...

I loved your list!! I am still giggling a little bit at the scary movie note :)

Suzanne@Meridian Road said...

I really love your list! I'm shy, too, and I re-do almost every house I ever go into.
