The Facts of Me




I have loved getting to read all of the "Facts of Me" posts floating around today and wanted to join, too!

Fact:
This man holds my heart.  He's my best friend, greatest love, and my better half.  I hit the jackpot when I met him.  I was thinking about our love story the other day and looking at some photos from our wedding and it just hit me (again) how blessed I am to be his and how greatly God orchestrated our love story.  


Fact:
These two little ones opened my life and my heart to a joy unexplainable.  The love I feel for them is like none other.  I am grateful and thankful each day that I get to be their Anna Belle.


Fact:
I'm a big sister.  My parents weren't supposed to be able to have any other children after me due to complications my mom had shortly after my birth involving a ruptured appendix, gangrene and a surgical sponge left inside of her.  Thankfully, almost nine years later, my sweet sister was born.  This Saturday marks her 18th birthday.  


Fact:
I have the best parents, in-laws, grandparents, friends and family in the world.  They are awesome.  I was blessed to not only be born into an amazing family, I married into one as well.


Fact:
I love to run.  I love the way it feels and the way my body feels even when I get sore.


Fact:
I'm a sinner, saved by Grace.

Fact:
I love my job.  I get the privilege of going to work to a job a love, one I went to school for and one that is on my list of "dream jobs" each day. 

Fact:
I love Italian and Mexican foods, but I won't touch Chinese and rarely eat Japanese.  I'm not that adventurous.

Fact:
I really want to be a DIY Martha Stewart-esque woman.  I may not decorate all the time, but I do cut the boys' sandwiches into cool things like dinosaurs some days.

Fact:
I like to read.  Really, I love to read, and I don't do it nearly enough. 

Fact:
I love the beach.  Love it.  
My husband can surf.

Fact:
I actually enjoying washing and folding clothes, but the putting up part I despise.

Fact:
I like to cook and really enjoy making sure my family has a healthy meal each night (you know, except those nights we eat out. Or Chickfila.).

Fact:
I love holidays.  Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Easter.  You name it, I love it.  I still get excited over Santa and the Easter Bunny even though they don't visit me anymore.  Holidays are way more fun with kids.

Fact:
Contrary to how it appears, I'm really more of an introvert than an extrovert.

Fact:
I decided to finish high school early near the end of my junior year.  That made me 22 when I finished my MBA.  I don't say that to sound smart/braggy/nerdy, only to say that I get really confused when I'm trying to figure out how old people are.

Fact:
I love to have fun.  I don't drink, smoke, or go out though.  

Fact:
I am obsessed with photo books.  I make them far too often.

Fact:
I have a list of blog posts that I want to write, but I haven't found the time to write them.

Fact: 
I'm really excited that White Collar starts back tonight.

Fact:
I love all of you readers and am having a great time getting to know you.  If you follow my blog and I don't follow yours, please let me know!

Fact:
I think I want to have a Q&A type post, so if you've got a question for me, ask away!  E-mail me at thethingsimlearning@gmail.com.  You ask, I'll answer!
