20 random facts about me

Okay, let's lighten up!

Here are some random things you just have to know about me!!!

I prefer Crayola Crayons to markers. You know, different brilliant colors. I'm prejudiced against markers!

I am not a chocoholic. Sorry. But I do enjoy chocolate, and I'm not talking Hershey's here, people. I like the good stuff. I have very sensitive taste buds, and I will eat Hershey's in a pinch, but I don't really like it. I prefer Guylian, Lindt, or Ghiradelli. And just for the record, I've tasted Godiva chocolate, and I have to tell you, it's nothing to write home about. I buy the good stuff at the store and it lasts me for weeks. Just one truffle or square satisfies my need.

My favorite flower is a sunflower. They always make me smile.

I am not athletic at all. I'm really rather clumsy and uncoordinated! I've never been skiing, ice skating, rock climbing, running, snowboarding, motorcycling, biking, or any other strenuous, outside, athletic activity.

I've dislocated both of my knees, the left one twice. Hence the reason why I do not do any of the above!

I really don't like deli meats anymore.

My favorite color is chocolate brown. I'm instantly drawn to it and it makes me feel calm.

We've never had a car payment. Ever.

I love couscous. I just discovered couscous. However, on a gluten free, wheat free diet, couscous are a no-no.

I'm deathly afraid of heights and flying in an airplane. Done both. Neither is too bad, once you get going.

I've been without my biological dad since I was two years old.

I love my step dad. He and my mom have been married since I was 16. They're going on 19 years, next month!

I only own one pair of socks.

I have a penchant for painting my toenails wild colors. I'm very conservative, but I have a sassy side as well.

I have a secret desire to be fluent in French. I took two years of French in high school and excelled in it. I quickly outgrew the classes. Third year French was canceled at the high school I went to so that there would be more money for the sports programs. Go figure.

I don't shower every day, or even every other day sometimes!

I love Tom's of Maine Spearmint no fluoride toothpaste.

My favorite drink is a strawberry daiquiri. Virgin.

I was the first girl my husband ever kissed. He was the first guy to turn my knees to jelly and make my heart race with his kissing. The first time he kissed me, I thought I was going to die! I actually was so forward as to ASK him to!!

I lived three miles away from the beach in So Cal growing up.

And I think this post is getting way too long, so I'll quit now while I'm ahead!!!
