39 Things

This is another idea I stole from someone else's blog.

Without further ado, I give you......

39 Things You Never Wanted To Know About Me!

1.  If I could, I would have a Red Leaf Triple Decaf Arctic Coconut Mocha with almond milk and extra coconut twice a week.  No whipped cream.  Sigh....

2.  I think I was born in Western Washington.

3.  I had never seen snow until I was 13 years old.

4.  I adore sauteed cabbage with tons of butter and a bit of vinegar.

5.  I didn't dream about getting married or having a family when I was a little girl.

6.  I really want to have more kids.

7.  I wish we lived near the beach.

8.  My mother and father divorced when I was about 2 years old.

9.  I never knew I had a brother who was 16 months younger than me until I was a teenager.

10.  I have no idea what nationality I am or where my ancestors came from.

11.  I asked Jesus Christ into my heart when I was 13 years old.

12.  I love Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea, the books and the movies.  Lucy Maude Montgomery is one of my top 5 favorite authors.

13.  I love to go on road trips, and I love to do the driving.

14.  I get extremely homesick whenever my husband and I try to go away on a trip or even on a date.  We haven't been away by ourselves since about 1996.

15.  I don't like dogs or cats.

16.  I like to talk and talk a LOT.  Many years ago, when my husband and I were dating, we went to the beach together, and on the way there, I talked constantly.  I never stopped for breath. It was almost a two-hour drive! If I'm excited I talk a lot.

17.  I always wanted to have sisters.  Now that I have 7 girls, I feel like they are much more to me than daughters.  They are much better than sisters to me! And so, I do not long to have sisters anymore.  I'm so grateful that my girls have each other and I tell them that a lot.

18.  I'm the short one in our home.  Both of my oldest girls, at 15 and almost 14, are at least an inch or two taller than me.

19.  I hate bikinis.  The last time I wore one was when I was 6 years old.  You'd never, ever catch me in a bikini, or any type of two-piece swimsuit, for that matter. But I love to swim and be in and near the water.

20.  I love skirts.

21.  I've only been drunk once in my life, and it was one of the most sickening, terrible feelings I've ever had.  I cannot understand how someone can like that feeling or think it's fun!

22.  I've always wanted to become fluent in French and I would have if my high school hadn't cut the French 3 class in order to keep the football team.  I don't think I've gotten over that yet, 20 years later.....

23.  I met and fell in love with my husband when I was 15 years old.

24.  I'm not a dessert lover.  I'd rather have a coffee drink from Red Leaf than any piece of cake, pie or cookie.

25.  I love to grocery shop.

26.  I love to iron.

27.  I don't mind doing dishes.

28.  I have a bit of an addictive personality, so I really have to watch out with stuff like Facebook (or computer stuff in general) or TV.

29.  I love cookbooks but never make the recipes in any of them.

30.  One of my dreams is to have a tiny, gluten free bakery in which I can make and sell my loaves and muffins and cookies.  I don't happen to have $250,000 sitting around!

31.  I once kissed one of my newborn's buns.  

32.  I don't shower every day.  Or even every other day.

33.  I'm good at finding out what's in a recipe just by tasting it.  I have a very sensitive palate.

34.  I'd love to take my voice class for one more quarter but I can't afford it the $215.00 tuition.  Sad.

35.  I still have a massive and very powerful crush on my husband.  When he kisses me, the bottom still drops out of my tummy.  When I see him across a crowded room, I still can't believe he's mine!

36.  Espresso brown is my favorite color.

37.  I have freckles.

38.  I'd love to have multiples again, but I know I'd be terrified the whole time, just like I am whenever I'm pregnant, whether it's a single or multiples.

39.  I've never been on a roller coaster and there's not many things I'd rather not do in life than ride a roller coaster.  Maybe get teeth pulled.  Or wear a bikini.  Or have chicken pox again......

I hope you enjoyed learning these totally useless and boring things about me!!

Hi Leanne
I definitely enjoyed your list. I hope you are going well & do end up getting those voice lessons.
I had 4 sisters & I think Ellie is missing out by not having a sister....sigh. I love having sisters!!! I am the complete opposite when it comes to talking, so we would get along well as you could talk & I could listen :)
Have a wonderful day my friend ( sorry it's been a while ~ life just got in the way of blogging).
