Get To Know Me

I know that I have some new readers and so I just wanted to do a fun little get-to-know me post.

1. I am a great lover of peanut butter. I love crunchy peanut butter on my toast at any time and my favorite candy happens to be these.

Best candy ever!

2. I've never broken a bone in my body (knock on wood!) I've come close to breaking my wrist when I tripped backwards over a bicycle, but luckily I ended up with just a sprain.

3. I'm a natural blonde. My hair is currently highlighted, but it's very close to my nautral hair color. My hair used to get white in the summers. I guess I can thank my Norweigan ancesters for that!

4.I've only been associated with the military for a little over a year now. None of my family were military and I'd never dated any ROTC or military guys before I married Sean.

5. I was raised on a cattle-ranch. We are by no means a huge ranch, but we've been raising and selling cattle since before I was born. In fact, I paid for the first couple years of my college by selling cattle I had acquired over the years.

6. I got my nose pierced in March. Most of my friends and family were shocked. It's something that I've wanted to have done for awhile though. I love it! It was very painful when I got it done though, I'm not going to deny that.

7. I HATE going to the dentist with a passion. I'd honestly rather go have a yearly exam then have anything done to my teeth.

8. There are two talents I wish I had. One is singing. I have an awful singing voice. The other would be to be able to sew anything. My mom has tried to teach me to sew...and I'm just not good at it. I wish I took after her and my grandma in that department!

9. I would love to live in Alaska one of these days. I absolutley fell in love with it when I went there on a vacation. I cannot wait to go back!

10. I am actually quite a shy person. I've improved since I was little, but in some social situations it's still difficult for me to start conversations with people.

11. Christmas is my favorite time of the year. I love the traditions of that time. I start listening to Christmas music right after Thanksgiving and that's pretty much all I listen to until Christmas Day. I go all out decorating too.

12. My first car was a 1982 Corvette. My dad had one in high school so he let me get one. I saved up money and also worked to pay it off. I drove it for seven years. It was an amazing car! It still sits at my parents house.

13. I know the entire soundtrack of Saturday Night Fever by heart. I also love all 70's era music. When I'm at work that's all I listen to on Internet radio.

14. I would like to get my Masters in Library Science and work as an elementary librarian. Summers off with my future kids would be great.

15. I've never had a massage, facial or pedicure which is something I plan on rectifying soon. Maybe that will be my reward when I lose another 10 lbs!

never had a pedicure? For the love of God, come to Houston and I'll take you to my place. They don't just paint you toes. There is a hot rock massage, exfoliating treatment, and mask on your legs, topped with an aroma therapy massage and parafin wax. All for the price of $25.

I also grew up on a cattle ranch.

I showed feeder calves at the fair for 10 years in 4-H and FFA. :)

People think I am such a country bumpkin. Nice to see I am not the only one, lol.

Becca said...

Mrs. Staff Sergeant said...

Okay- I keep finding blogs through other blogs and find that it's such a small world. My dream (like a few other milspouses I found) is to get my MLS too! I used to teach, but realized that what I really want to do is get my Masters of Library Science.

Small world. And Reeses rock.
