75 Things

Alright Tricia, I will accept your challenge to write 75 interesting facts about myself. OK, I don't know how interesting they will be, but they will be facts. ;-)


  1. I wanted to go to Paris on my honeymoon.
  2. But I would never change a thing about the honeymoon we actually took to Cabo.
  3. I HATE tomatoes
  4. But I LOVE tomato sauce, spaghetti sauce & ketchup.
  5. I LOVE apples and anything with apples in it.
  6. But I HATE applesauce
  7. I HATE when people use a "k" to start words that are supposed to start with a "c"
  8. I LOVE anything even remotely related to Elvis Presley
  9. I would rather cook and/or bake than do just about anything
  10. Josh has always and probably will always hand wash the dishes (I do the dishwasher and everything else though, don't worry)
  11. I had pretty bad post-partum depression after I had Jack and I only recently got through it because I didn't take any meds.
  12. That is actually the first time I ever admitted that.
  13. I say I need a break from the kids every day
  14. But I would never actually be able to leave them and go to an "outside" job.
  15. My favorite season is fall.
  16. But my favorite Holiday is Christmas. It is seriously a sick obsession that starts in July and ends with me sobbing all day on Dec. 26th because, in my own words "it's all over".
  17. I have always secretly wanted to live in Seattle. I really don't know why, though.
  18. I believe that the number 5 is lucky for me.
  19. I am a compulsive list maker...it's a sickness, really
  20. I watch every documentary/show/miniseries/movie that has anything to do with World War II.
  21. I married my high school sweetheart.
  22. I was the only one in high school though ;-)
  23. I hated my first high school...
  24. But I hated my second one even more.
  25. I have had 12 different jobs in my life (not including babysitting)

  28. I get 80% of the clothes I wear from QVC.
  29. I HATE the heat. (mostly it's the sweating=being dirty that I dislike)
  30. One day I hope to finish my list of 1000 places to see before I die (I changed some from the book)
  31. I don't understand people who go on the same vacation every year. I want to travel all over the world, not go on a Caribbean cruise every year or to myrtle beach every summer.
  32. I have always wanted to get jury duty
  33. I have never had jury duty
  34. Josh and I have been talking about going to Alaska since we met, and I can't wait until it actually happens. (even if I have to wait 20 years to be able to pay cash and not charge it on a credit card)
  35. Josh and I have canceled our credit card and vowed to never use one again. We used it a couple years ago for a couple big purchases and we are STILL paying it off.

  52. It was strangely peaceful and not scary at all.
  53. I have a very good sense of smell
  54. I have always wanted to learn the dance to Thriller. (and I am only reminded of it, now because of all the recent news coverage)

What a wonderfully honest post! I love how you tied different items on the post together. And you've never had a beer? Wow! I just can't imagine a vacation on the beach without one (although these days, it's always just that, ONE!)
