100 things about me

1. I am the mother of 2, almost 3 boys

2. I've been married to my husband Jeff for 8 years 4 1/2 months

3. We only dated 2 1/2 months before we were engaged, and 9 months before we were married. And no, there was no baby, despite what people probably thought. I just love him.

4. I love coupons

5. I have 2 brothers

6. I have 3 sisters

7. I am the youngest

8. When I was young, I jumped off my dads scaffolding, caught my foot and landed face first on the cement pad in front of our garage. Got 2 black eyes.

9. My favorite thing for breakfast is toast, I know, very exciting

10. My favorite movie is "Robin Hood Men in Tights" and I own 2 copies

11. I don't like to give out my age over the internet because I'm afraid of identity theft

12. I had braces when I was a kid. Very cute when you're already the overweight kid in your class, and now have braces. Nope, didn't get teased at all! (can you sense the sarcasm?)

13. My first car was a 92' Plymouth Sundance. We retired it this past summer when we finally got a truck. We've attempted to replace it before, but it always found it's way back to us.

14. Got $100 for the old car at a scrap yard. It won't be finding it's way back now.

15. My favorite thing to wear to bed is a pair of pj pants and my husbands very old t-shirt. I think it may be from when he was in high school, or not long after. He gave it to me the last time I was pregnant. Probably knew he wasn't getting it back anyway.

16. I wear the colors black and burgundy a lot. This was pointed out to me just recently.

17. I believe that we were created.

18. I do not believe that the earth is millions of years old.

19. I never did finish cleaning out my garden last year. There are still cucumbers in it.

20. I will not be planting a garden this year. Unless it's a grass garden.

21. I am the most indecisive person I know, just ask my husband.

22. I think that I will one day get cancer.

23. I have green eyes.

24. I will never tell you how much I weigh, and I hate it that they weigh me at pre-natal appointments. Is it really necessary?

25. I weigh myself almost everyday.

26. I love cake

27. I have 6 nieces, 6 nephews, 1 great niece and 2 great nephews!

28. I love going to the movies

29. I have never gone to college or university. I have taken some insurance courses though. Did pretty good.

30. I have never been pulled over by the cops. Although, now that I've said it....

31. I went to a Garth Brooks concert once. It was a dream of mine (back then, I've since had other dreams, bigger dreams)

32. I would go to another Garth Brooks concert.

33. When I walk on my treadmill, I listen to Celine Dion.

34. I love God. (This should have been listed as number 1)

35. I can play the piano. Not well, but I can play.

36. I have been to England and Scotland, Tampa Bay and Disney World! (there are other places too, but those are the furthest away)

37. I use Herbal Essences shampoo and conditioner, the blue one that smells like coconut. (not the 2-in-1)

38. I love things that smell like coconut. Makes me feel all tropical or something.

39. I used to buy the cheapest shampoo I could find. Then Tiffany changed my mind. Not necessarily on the brand, just on the cheap part.

39. My right foot is smaller than my left foot.

40. My left calf is bigger than my right calf. There are medical reasons for these things.

41. I'm afraid to die. There, I said it.

42. I've been driving a mini van for the past 4 years. Never thought I would be driving a van until well into my 30's.

42. I hope my van will last for a few more years. I hate car payments.

43. I have brown hair.

44. My ears are pierced but I very rarely wear earrings.

45. I used to have a second hole in each ear, but since I rarely wear earrings, they grew shut.

46. One of my favorite songs is "Shameless" by Garth Brooks.

47. The next house I buy is going to be self-cleaning. They make ovens that way, why can't they make houses that way?

48. I miss my grandma

49. I wish I could make buns.

50. Before I go to bed, I have to make sure the toaster is unplugged and the stove is off. Even if I didn't use the stove or the toaster that day. I also check on my boys about 3 times each, to make sure they're okay. I think I'm a little nuts.

51. I'm good at Wheel of Fortune.

52. I like to play Yahtzee with my parents. I always lose, but it's fun anyway.

53. I love hymns

54. I have no pets. Not anymore.

63. I got stuck in Tiffany's driveway the other day.

64. I watch Days of our Lives, The Biggest Loser, Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice

71. My middle name is Patricia, after my mom

73. I will never wear a bikini

74. I'm not a very good swimmer. I failed maroon in swimming lessons twice, then I quit. Stupid front crawl anyway.

75. I'd rather bake than cook. (Tif, you and I should live together)

76. There are two places I want to travel to. Hawaii is one, the other is Las Vegas.

77. I don't gamble. (except for the 2 times I played Bingo, payday pool, the occasional draw, and the lottery ticket I bought with Heather, we won $10 and then went for ice-cream)

78. I told my husband that he has to take me to Las Vegas for our 10 year anniversary. I would settle for Hawaii.

79. I've never smoked anything in my life.

80. I probably have some nice healthy lungs.

81. I worked at Wal-Mart for 3 days.

86. My least favorite chore is cleaning the bathroom.

87. I vote for laundry over vacumming.

88. I am for the death-penalty.

89. I moved to Portage with Lyla when I was 18. Had no job, but moved anyway.

90. I think the deck on the front of my house was a waste of money.

91. I'm good at math.

92. I worry a lot.

93. I told my sister just before I turned 18 that if any of them needed an organ, they'd better hurry up. Now they're all mine.

You only dated 2 1/2 months?! Wow. We dated over five years - but I guess getting married at 15 wouldn't have been a good idea, would it?
I will agree with you - Coke is WAAAAAY better than Pepsi.
And I still have beets in my garden from last summer too. Shhh, don't tell anyone. ;)

Tiffany said...

Sonya May!! I'm ashamed at you. Pickled beets are delicious!

Ange - I do not remember the shampoo conversation!

Sonya said...

Oh I know they're tasty - but we're still eating pickled beets from the summer of 2007. And I was all "canned" out.
Please tell us of the shampoo conversation Ange. Cause I buy the cheapest stuff too. (Provided it's a name brand). ;)

leannegiesbrecht said...

what? you don't like honey dill sauce? all the times we've had chicken fingers and fries at the chef and i never knew you didn't like honey dill sauce? ange... i live for honey dill sauce.

Tiffany said...

I'm with Leanne. Honey dill sauce is awesome!

Candice said...

I love your list! full of big and small things. It's so funny when you're reading someone's 100 you come up with like a 100 comments, then get to the end and can't remember them.

This one I do remember though: You beat Tom and I's 98 days to engagement! That's awesome.
I think people were expecting us to be expecting too. No baby over here either though; just in love and knew he/I was the one. Period.


Can I strike a deal with some of you? Next time I'm in town I'll bring my laundry and while I vacuum your house...

Ange said...

I'm so glad to hear that I'm not the only one who didn't finish cleaning out her garden. oops, wasn't supposed to tell anyone. And I suppose getting married at 15isn't such a good idea.

The shampoo thing wasn't all that big of a deal. Tiffany, you were still living on Pembina and I may have stayed over night. We got talking shampoo and you told me something like there are somethings that are worth spending money on, like good shampoo. Or something like that. I can't remember exactly what it was but after that I started buying better shampoo. I think you used L'Oreal Vive at the time. I think I may have used yours that day.

Sorry girls, don't like honey dill. I have a story about honey dill sauce. Maybe I'll share it. But just think, next time we go for lunch you can have my honey dill sauce!

Hey Candice. I like hearing when other people got engaged quickly too! Sometimes you just know. I couldn't imagine my life in 40 years and him not being a part of it. So I knew. I believe it was God's plan for us.

I'll do your laundry for you. I don't mind.

Tiffany said...

Hmmm, maybe I'll have to start buying the good stuff again! I tend to buy cheaper stuff now since I have to share it with people who don't care!

Ange said...

The stuff I used to buy was like $3 for a 1L bottle. It may have gone up to $4, but this was quite a few years ago. I don't spend a lot now either. It's just not the super cheap stuff.

Hes said...

I love your list. I don't know how you guys come up with 100 things all at once. I had to split it up... still not done. One thing that you missed was that you have a fabulous sister in law. Maybe that can be #101. he he

Ange said...

That's is definately on my list, sorry I missed it. Maybe there's a spot on your list for it, since you have one too:)

This list took me a quite a long time to put together. But I am looking forward to part 4 & 5!
