about me

10 11 random things about me

1- I believe in God.  I believe that Jesus died on the cross for our sins.  I believe that lack of this belief (religion in general) is the downfall of the world…particularly the US.  I believe that I am not to judge, that we will all be judged by a higher power in the end.  I believe we should all love the sinner, and hate the sin.  Amen.

2- I got married at 19, bought my first house when I was only 20 and my second house when I was 29.  It does not end there…someday we will have a piece of land with a horse.

3- I am a totally 80’s girl.  Most of the music on my iPod is from the 80’s.  I was a huge fan of Cabbage Patch Dolls, puffy stickers with googly eyes, Punky Brewster and George Michael (ok…still am a fan of GM).

4- I don’t like the dark.  Not that I am scared of the dark…but I am not productive when it gets dark outside.  My mind says dark=bedtime.  So if it gets dark at 5pm, I want to go to bed, but if it is light by 5am…I am ready to take on the world.  I also feel like nothing bad will happen when the sun is shining.

5- I never thought I would be a mom to 2 girls.  I always thought I would have boys.  And the fact that they are girlie girls, I think makes it even harder to believe.

6- If I had to do high school over again, there is not much I would change.  I was NOT popular, but I liked my friends, and I liked the choices I made.  The only thing I regret was not being more involved in student council.

7- Someday I want to travel the world showing educators how to be the best they can be!

8- I collect things.  Not just anything…but whatever my current crafty thing is.  For example, I can’t just buy a stamp pad for my rubber stamps, I have to buy every color.  You never know when you might need THAT particular color.

9- I spend too much time perfecting things.  I will not do something until I am 110% sure that I can do it correctly.  This means I will not try things until I am sure that I will not fall flat on my face.

10- I am not an over-emotional person.  I don’t cry very often and I don’t get jump-for-joy-excited about things.  I leave the romantic stuff up to my husband.  With that being said, there is nothing greater in the world than seeing a child’s face light up at Christmas…or when you go to Disney World. :)

11- I am so lucky to have a loving husband, 2 beautiful girls and 1 dog.

***You might be wondering why this blog is so random in parts.  Back in 2009 when really started blogging, I did so on a blog about EVERYTHING!  Over time, I have decided to focus certain blogs on certain parts of my life, so I ripped my blog apart and this is what you have.  If you are interested, I keep an educational blog over at www.knowledgecornerstone.com 😉
