25 Things About Me and a Picture

The gals, Emily and Jenny, at Mommin' It Up! tagged me in this meme. Since I haven't done one in a while, I thought I would give you a few more things about me – like you're just waiting at the edge of your computers to know, right??

Rules: Once youve been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 5 people to be tagged (It was 25 but thats a lot!).

  1. I'm not as frugal as some may think. See the things I splurge on here (expired).
  2. My hubs and I fell in love through letters while he was in the military.
  3. I still have all those letters. He, unfortunately burnt all mine (we broke up for a minute, I'll spare you the details).
  4. I am not a “hugger.” Don't get me wrong, I hug my family. So, if you get a hug, you're special :-)
  5. I am not a “cryer” either. I am emotional but hold it in pretty well.
  6. I am a fierce “closet” competitor. I keep it in the closet I suppose as a strategy. And, well, now you all now so I'm “outed.”
  7. I use my son's laptop all the time. I really need to get my own.
  8. I am a fierce momma bear. I'm sure we all are. You mess with my kids and I'll go all kung fu on ya!
  9. I HATE cleaning.
  10. I love Jesus – if you couldn't tell that already :-)
  11. I have lost my rhythm as I've aged. I don't know what happened but I used to be able to dance like Beyonce (without all the squatting and crawling you know). Now, the dancing is really more like me doing squats (like you needed that visual).
  12. I am mostly 29*.
  13. I LOVE me some karaoke.
  14. I officially ROCK on Rock Band.
  15. And, I scored 100% on “Eye of the Tiger” and “Hungry Like a Wolf.” Oh yeah – SHAZAM!
  16. I rarely wear jewelry. Sometimes I even forget to wear my wedding band. And, no it's not subconscious, I just forget to put it on (since I take it off each night).
  17. I had to have my wedding rings cut off with my 2nd son, Caleb. My hands were like big fat sausages.
  18. My oldest son's middle name is my husband's middle name (Eddie), my middle son has my dad's name as his middle name (John). Our youngest son has my father-in-law/brother-in-law's middle name as his middle name (Joe). We keep it in the family and all.
  19. Our youngest, Andon, is actually named after me…kind of. I was named after my paternal grandfather (Andrew). When my BFF shared the name Andon with me, I looked it up and it's a derivitive of Andrew. So, in a round-a-bout way he's named after me (and looks nothing like me).
  20. I secretly watch Brad Pitt movies. Well, ever since he and Angie got together, my BFF and I had an oath that we wouldn't watch any movies of either of them. But, I do…sometimes…and now my BFF knows. Sorry but they have so many good things they are doing now that you gotta love them (secretly and all). Hey, Jesus forgave me, I can extend that grace to them too, right?! (like they even care :-)
  21. I am going back to school for nursing. I have taken several quarters off because my class schedule hasn't worked out (family first). But, I want to be a nurse one day.
  22. I don't wear eye make-up. I just recently started wearing mascara when I am “made up” – it really does do something for your eyes (when it doesn't flake off):-)
  23. I rarely wear make-up. Definitely on Sunday for church and if I'm going to be around people. Other than that, I go “au naturale.”
  24. I have a wee problem with editing. I will post, edit, repeat. It's quite terrible for efficiency, I know (sorry if you read in a feed b/c I just realized that it brings the recent edits back to the top).
  25. I think the ladies below officially ROCK (and they're super hotties too)! We got together over the weekend to chat it up! There were a few gals that were missing and they rock too (and share equal hotness)!

They are (from front left to right then back left to right):
Carrie @ Money Saving Methods
Emily @ Mommin' It Up!
Marianne @ The New Frugal Mom and Writer-Mommy
Carrie @ Carrie's Cooking
Me (could ya tell)
Erin @ $5 Dinners

So, I'm tagging:

Carrie @ Carrie's Cooking
Cat @ Cat's Muse
Jennifer @ Always Searching Always Growing
Bekah @ Motherhood Moment
Roxann @ How Much Can I Save

*For the record of this blog, you shall know my as 29 for here and ever more. Don't ask questions because I don't want to have to lie to you. :-)

    very fun! I wanna see you shake it like Beyonce! I never had that talent. EVER.

  • Emily from Mommin It Up - January 13, 2009 @ 7:38 pm

    Numbers 4, 5 & 6? Ditto.

    I don't think I've ever been referred to as a hottie before, lol.

    Great things about you! I think it’s funny that your hubby burnt the pictures and you didn’t. I was the one that did the burning when my first long relationship had a little hiccup.

    Y’all look great in the pic.

    Okay, this is weird. I recognize both of the Carries from your photo! My husband worked with both of their husbands! And, he is still good friends with one of those husbands! Isn’t that weird? Small world, eh?

    Yeah 29…except I remember a XXX last year (comment has been edited to protect the innocence of the fabulous author :-) and you were the guest of honor. Things that make you go hmmmmm….. I thought for sure I’d see the shower/teeth brusher as one of your comments or the sax player. Great things to know. Keep on bloggin


  • Andrea @ Mommy Snacks.net - January 13, 2009 @ 11:01 pm

    Connie – that is weird!!! What a small world :-)

    That’s fun that you guys all get together. Are you all there in S. Ohio then. I am amazed at the number of Ohio blogs I have come upon.

  • Shannanb aka Mommy Bits - January 14, 2009 @ 4:10 am

    I love these memes. You learn so much about people. I am a closet competitor too. Wish I was closer to you gals. We need a regional Ohio gathering…

    Girl I can’t believe you’re watching movies with Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie! I’m hurt. :0)
