Random Facts

So what seems like ages ago I was tagged by Jenifer to do this meme. I started working on it, but then Thomas came...and well, everything took a backseat. Now I finally got around to finishing it! Enjoy!

#1 Link to the person that tagged you.
#2 Post the rules on your blog.
#3 Share seven random and/or weird facts about yourself on your blog.
#4 Tag seven random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs.
# 5 Leave a comment on their blogs so that they know they have been tagged

1. I don’t like apple juice. I don’t know why, but I don’t. It was kinda funny because the year after I graduated from high school, I ended up with a secret admirer dropping things off at my door for about a week. He would leave a note, and then some sort of Martinelli’s product. I got the sparkling cider, actual apple juice, and some other type of apple juice type stuff. Julie and I had to laugh because this guy obviously didn’t know me well enough to know that I wouldn’t truly appreciate his gesture.

2. I have an open bite. That means that only my back two molars touch. Yeah, it is pretty crazy. No one can really notice unless I show them, but I can literally be biting down with all of my might and still stick a cracker between my teeth. It was fixed at one point (Shawn’s uncle is an orthodontist), but within a year of me getting braces off, my tongue thrust pushed them apart again. Somehow I still manage to chew, but I hate biting into things! It is not an easy task.

3. I have lived in Arizona my entire life, but have never been to the Grand Canyon. I have driven past, but have never actually visited it! I think it is so strange. Hopefully when our kids get a bit older we can take the whole fam there.

4. I have only moved three times. I guess technically you could say 4, but I was only a few weeks old when my parents moved into the house I was raised in. I lived there until I was married. Then moved into our condo, and then moved to the house we live in now. I don’t plan on moving again.

5. I actually look forward to going to the Dentist. There is always that stigma that comes with Dentistry. Most people can’t stand it, but I really like to go. There is nothing better than walking out of that office with freshly cleaned pearly whites (thanks Heather). I do get cavities (those darn genetically bad teeth!), but I figure I am doing my part to keep my teeth as healthy as I can. BTW...I know of a FABULOUS dentist if you are looking for one!

6. I hate passing large vehicles (mainly Semi’s). I don’t know why it is, but it puts me in panic mode. I literally hold my breath every time I pass a Semi. My heart races, and I just plain hate it. My mind goes into a dream sequence (like in Scrubs), and I see the semi coming into my lane to demolish me in my car. I just am waiting for the day that they don’t see me, and it actually happens. I do the same thing with cement trucks… I hate driving behind them. I always picture the thing all of a sudden pouring cement all over me. Yes…send me to the looney bin – I hallucinate when I drive.

7.My hair gets curlier after each pregnancy. Does this happen to you? I used to have stick straight hair, but after each kid it has gotten wavier and wavier. It would be nice if it actually looked good, but it is just a funky wave. Maybe if I have a bunch of kids the natural curl will actually be something I can work with...in the meantime it is just a pain in the behind!

Now consider yourself tagged...let me know when you write a post. I would love to come read it!

I don't like apple juice either! And I don't like cranberry juice. BUT after having Taylor I had apple juice and cranberry juice in the hospital mixed together and LOVED it! Alone, not so good. Together, Yummy!

I like the dentist too--or did until mine retired--now I need a new one, but really can't afford to travel to AZ--bummer, finding a dentist is scary for me.
My hair did the exact opposite of yours and went from crazy curls to straight and fine. I only have one kid, so it will be interesting to see what happens next.

I have to agree with on the wavy hair and the dentist. I love the dentist. I love the fresh feeling of my nice clean teeth. Also my hair gets wavier everytime I have a kid. In high school my hair was just straight and thick and now I get to add wavy to the mix. It's funny though because it's only in the underneath part of my hair not on top. I'm sure I have another kid it would just all go curly but we will never know.

love your randoms! we have a bit in common. well, i love apples & apple juice (including the sparkling martinelli's). pretty funny about your secret admirer! i love visiting the dentist (although I've only gone a handful of times for, yes, cavities). i also don't like driving past huge trucks & semi's. I envision the scary wreckage happening to me as they whiz passed me. and I have had stuff hit my car from a truck in front of me, well it drove over some tire rubber on the road & hit my windshield - totally cracked it & I had to get it fixed! I think my hair gets wavier with kids too. but not the pretty curly wave, just weird curly waves in the back, but turns to frizz when i brush thru it. so I have to blow dry my hair & curl it. so much maintenance! ha ha :) Oh, and I was born & raised in AZ (only lived in TX for 5 1/2 yrs) and have never been to the Grand Canyon either. So there, you're not too weird! LOL :)
