In case you haven't had enough.

Randomness, that is.

I've actually lost track of the number of "tags" I've gotten between blogs and facebook to list 25 random things about myself.

I know what you're thinking...

You've been waiting in quiet anticipation to hear more randomness from me. Or quite possibly the opposite, have vowed to exile me from your computer domain if I even dare to waste your time with such things.

For the sake of ??? I actually don't really know other than for the fun of playing along, here is my list.

Drum roll please. Just kidding.

  1. I get a little freaked out...ok paranoid, when birds fly over my head. I don't even need to be holding an ice cream. I just. don't. like it.

  2. I don't like flannel sheets. Can't stand the feel of them, even when it's freezing, but I've learned to live with them for the winter months to keep the hubby from wearing sweats to bed:) (they may already be out there, but if not, then someone needs to start making a bed sheet that is half clingy sweaty flannel and the other half heavenly smooth and slick Egyptian cotton. I'm just sayin'.)

  3. I love pedicures, but as hard as I try, can not stop giggling and wriggling when they file the bottoms of my feet. (It's been way too long. Next time it might take an industrial strength sander.)

  4. On a similar topic - I have really long toes. To the point that I really don't think they are attractive. You know, because you use the word "attractive" to describe people's toes everyday...

  5. I've had the bad habit of biting my nails (finger nails not toes) off and on my whole life. It's really one that I wish I could kick for good.

  6. I love to organize. Doesn't everyone, though?

  7. I like my showers hot. Really hot. Scorch your skin kind of hot.

  8. I'm one of those people that said I would NEVER own a mini-van. I now own a Honda Odyssey and am lovin' it. AND we cut our gas bill in half, thankyouverymuch.

  9. I love camping. I grew up camping for summer family vacations and have great memories from it, and I want my kids to grow to love it as much as I did.

  10. I hate to dust, but love to vacuum.

  11. When we stay in hotels, the very first thing I do is throw the comforter from the bed on the floor, because you just. don't. know. what could be on that thing. Ewww.

  12. I don't like tomatoes but I do. The strange part about that is I love salsa, things made with tomato, even a thin slice of tomato on a BLT, cheeseburger, pizza or sandwich is nice, but if I was to just eat a tomato all by it's lonesome, I would gag.

  13. I've had a few nicknames in my lifetime including, but not limited to the following: Cat, Cacky, Red, Quakie, Poop and Poopie(there is a perfectly reasonable explanation for this, if you would like to hear it, leave me a comment and I'll tell you the story.)

  14. Enya's Watermark takes me back to when Will was born and we spent 8 days with him in the hospital. That CD was playing every time we were sleeping, day or night. Oh, the memories.

  15. I do not have one single cavity or filling. Not a one in my 30ish years of life... Not to brag or anything.

  16. I love Jesus. Not random. Just who I am.

  17. I struggle to be in The Word daily. Why? I don't know, it really makes no sense. When I'm in it, I LOVE it and soak it in. When I'm not, I crave it.

  18. I've been known to lip sync at the tops of my lungs :) in the car an older Jessica Simpson song. (you know, when she was actually good.) I lip synced because there was no way I could have reached those notes and really wanted to pretend that I could.

  19. When I'm not with my kids I sometimes have unexplained fear that I will never see them again. I'm learning to trust God with this more and more.

  20. After God, the most important relationships in my life are my hubby and then my kids. After them, my energies go to the rest of my family and my friends. I'm continually trying to discover these peoples love language so I can speak it to them better.

  21. I like shoes. I mean really like. But I'm also frugal so if I can find an amazing pair that goes with almost anything, that's a HUGE bonus!

  22. And about that frugal thing...people might call me a freak. I love to use coupons, and lately, if I don't get something for free, almost free, or make money on it, I am disappointed.

  23. I love having coffee with my hubby and friends, and losing track of time while we chat away.

  24. I love historical things and places. And I dream to someday take a cross country trip with my family to visit ALL these places (and maybe some of you! ...not that you're historical or all look 21 ) that you think I'm reeeeally boring...

  25. I don't care for my freckles. It's one of those things that I plan on asking God about when I get to His kingdom. But I also know that I won't, because I'll be to busy falling face down while His glory shines around!

...and now I'm humming that song...:)

I like you! And enjoyed your list. We have lots in common.

I, too, have a major fear of birds when they are flying. I'm a-ok if they are on the ground, but don't dare take flight.

I cannot believe you do not like flannel sheets!!

I would love a pedicure, but the last time someone messed with my feet, I accidentally kicked them in the face and broke their nose.

6-12, 15, 16, 17, 21, 22, 24. Wow that is a lot! :)

You don't like flannel sheets???? It probably wouldn't be too hard to cut a set of each in half and then sew them together. :)

#13 - ok, dont really wanna know the story behind the nickname, poop, but you should add to the list "quack" b/c if i remember right, your laugh sounds pretty spot-on like the sound a duck makes!

OK, so what about Beeg on #13? We want to hear the story on Poop and Poopie, and we can't believe how much we didn't know about our own daughter. We thought we should know you pretty well, but apparently we don't, and that makes us kinda sad :(
Love, Mom & Dad

shhhhh...that's a private nickname:) Actually I guess I just listed the ones from highschool on. And looking back at my list I would say you probably knew at least 2/3 of those things and the other ones probably no one really knows because they are truly random:) I purposely tried to pick some that probably no one would know. Ok, mom, your turn! You should blog your 25 random things!
