The Facts of Me

Who was that?  How long have so and so been together?  Did she move?  When is their baby due?  What happened to your car?  Where does that one guy work?

These are some of the many questions that come out of my mouth frequently.  My husband says I'm nosy.  I say I am curious and interested.  Some may be surprised by the amount of stuff I know about people that doesn't really matter.  I keep track of how different people are related and who has been doing what.  I think part of it has to do with growing up in a small town and knowing everybody to some extent.

Today - I found out that I am not the only one!! 
**This really was exciting for me**

Whitney at I Wore Yoga Pants to Work is hosting a one-day link up today, dedicated just to us "nosy people"!!  "The Facts of Me" is all about listing those crazy things that make you "you" and linking up to share them!  Whitney mentioned in her post that she hoped that the link up was successful - well she has over 200 contributors so far so I don't think she had anything to worry about!!

FACT: If I could only drink one thing for the rest of my life, it would be a tie between Diet Coke and coffee with French Vanilla sugar-free creamer...which is making it pretty difficult to give up drinking soda and making my morning coffee even more important!

FACT: I got my passport when I was 16, but never actually used it until I was 20.  It got me through a 3 month trip to China and a week-long honeymoon in Jamaica.

FACT: I usually earn almost 2 months of extra vacation time while working overtime during tax season.

FACT: My closet is organized by type of clothing - layering tanks, regular tanks, short-sleeved tees, long-sleeved tees, blouses, camisoles, sweaters, sweatshirts, workout clothes.....you get the idea.  Oh - and the majority of them are probably grey, purple or black.

FACT: This last year I have kind of gotten into following sports (more than I used to at least).  I consider myself an amateur Seahawks and Ducks fan and am looking forward to watching the Superbowl in a couple of weeks.  Also, in the last 2 weeks I have gone to 2 Blazers games (had courtside seats at one, nosebleed section at the other).

FACT: My favorite photo shoot to this day is my very first newborn shot with my friends' 2 week old little girl.  She was a perfect angel and I actually really liked the way the photos turned out.

FACT: I am a human heater when I sleep.  I go to bed freezing and wake up in the middle of the night to shed clothes!

FACT: My all time favorite Disney movie is Beauty and the Beast.  I used to want to be Belle when I was younger.  And while I am on the topic of Disney movies - I think the classic Disney movies are way better than the newer children's movies.  What happened?!

FACT: I used to love Top Ramen . . . until I read the nutritional information.  Haven't eaten it since!!

FACT: This guy is the best thing to ever happen to me.

He is supportive and loving and has helped me figured out who I am.  He is encouraging and makes me laugh and cooks me dinner *sometimes*  I can't wait for many more adventures together!

Well - that is all for now.  Maybe I will come up with some more another day....

Be sure to go check out Whitney's blog and link up!!

    I'm trying to kick the diet soda habit as well...my new go-to cold drink is a litre of club soda mixed with a can of pineapple in juice and some sliced strawberries. Yum!
