100 Things About Me!

I can't believe that I am arriving at my 100th post! I have to say that I have thoroughly enjoyed blogging thus far, and think that it will stick with me. So in honor of it being my 100th post I thought I would let you in on 100 things about me! Here it goes!

  1. I am a native Arizonan that was born on July 3

  2. I was the third girl and 6th child in my family...there were two more boys after me.

  3. My parents moved shortly after I was born into the home that I grew up in for my entire childhood. They still live there today!

  4. I was a thumbsucker!

  5. When I was young, my sister got me to call her Mom and my Mom - Grandma! (My mom didn't like that too much)

  6. I got the nickname "Crissybug" from a neighbor who thought I was "cute as a bug."

  7. My favorite color is yellow

  8. My favorite flower is a Daisy

  9. I have played the violin since I was 9 years old (although I don't get to play it very much these days)

  10. I also play the piano, and I sing

  11. I love to dance...particularly 40's swing (another thing I don't get to do as often as I would like)

  12. A curling iron fell on my foot when I was 3

  13. I have a heart shaped scar on my left foot from that burn

  14. When I was little, I always wanted a kitten

  15. Now I don't want any pets

  16. My parents owned a local video rental store called "The Video Box" - it was before the Blockbuster franchise days.

  17. I worked the registers when I was only 8 years old!

  18. The customers always questioned whether or not I could help them.

  19. When I was in 6th grade I won a poetry recessataion contest.

  20. I was a sophmore in H.S. when I gained my own testimony of Jesus Christ.

  21. That was also the year I got my first kiss.

  22. I got my first 'real' job when I was a junior in H.S at Organ Stop Pizza.

  23. My senior year I met, Brodie, the guy I thought I was going to marry, when he got a job at Organ Stop Pizza.

  24. We dated for almost 2 years before he left on his mission

  25. I still dated other guys while Brodie was on his mission.

  26. I first met Joel

  27. Then I met Brad

  28. Next came Tim

  29. From these 3 guys I learned that someone other than Brodie could make me happy

  30. I also learned that I was trying to do all I could to have a guy like me. I would change my likes and dislikes to fit theirs...not something I would recommend

  31. I finally decided that I would no longer compromise myself in order to receive what I thought was love

  32. That is when I ended up meeting Shawn at a country dance (yes this is embarrassing, but true).

  33. He told me that he loved me when we had only known each other for 2 weeks

  34. I told him 'Thank You'

  35. I was in denial for weeks

  36. The spirit finally told me that I had to give him a chance

  37. I was scared out of my mind because I didn't want to get hurt again

  38. Shawn continued to say "I Love You" even thought I couldn't reciprocate

  39. I realized that he was the first person who I could truly be "me" with

  40. He wrote a song, and sang it to me at a Talent Show when he proposed

  41. We got married 3 months later, a few months before 'my missionary' got home

  42. We went to Spain our honeymoon

  43. It was my first time out of the country

  44. I got braces for the first time when I was 20 (the perks of marrying into a family of orthodontics)

  45. My teeth got fixed, but within the year of me getting them tongue thrust has brought back my open bite

  46. Only my back 4 teeth touch

  47. People wonder how I can chew food

  48. In fact, Julie & Robbie used to take me to Burger King to watch me try to eat a hamburger for entertainment

  49. We celebrated our 5 month anniversary when I was in FA Training

  50. Because I was in training I missed my best friends (Julie & Robbie's) wedding

  52. Flight Attendant training and the 1st year on the job was probably one of the hardest things I have ever done.

  53. I have been a flight attendant for almost 7 years!! (Half of that time I have been pregnant and/or on maternity leave)

  67. We moved into a 5 bedroom house when I was 3 months prego (we never want to move again)

  68. I gained far too much weight & way too many stretch marks, all for my beautiful 9lbs 7oz baby boy, Caden James.

  69. I love being a mother

  70. Sydney Ranelle came 2 years and 2 weeks later, and was a far better pregnancy!

  71. My hair gets curlier with each pregnancy

  72. I have never dyed or highlighted my hair before

  73. I do not like seafood

  75. Yes, I watch too much TV

  76. I like all types of music except for heavy metal

  77. I love watching movies

  78. One of my favorite movies is Brokedown Palace

  79. Shawn hates it because he thinks it is too depressing. I cry every time I watch it and wonder if I would have the strength to make such a sacrifice for another.

  80. My favorite restaurant is The Olive Garden

  81. I love Old Navy, Target & Costco

  82. I was born and raised LDS and would not be the same without the gospel in my life

  88. I think nothing is better than curling up to read a good book.

  89. One of my favorites is "The Last Valentine" by James Michael has an amazing way of showing what love is.

  90. Even thought I live in HOT Arizona, I rarely wear shorts because I hate my legs

  91. I love Yoga! I did it through out my whole pregnancy with Sydney and it was the best thing I ever did!

  92. I am a people pleaser - I have a hard time telling people 'no'

  93. When I was young I burned my finger on a homemade gigantic lifesaver because I touched it seconds after we took it out of the microwave...Yes, I was that stupid!

  94. I love listening to my husband sing - He really has the most beautiful voice!

  95. I have a hard time asking for help

  96. Partly because I like things done a certain way, and partly because I don't want to burden anyone else.

  98. I got LASIK done in January 2007, and it was the best think I ever did!

Just a FEW of the things we have in common:

I love yellow, kittens, The Olive Garden, Costco, Target and being a mother. It took me awhile to have kids, I can not stand seafood, I despise moving and I have never colored my hair.

We so need to live closer to each other!
