Getting to Know Me

So I stole this idea from Sweet Tea in Sicily, go check out her blog.  She's also recently married and moved a long way away with her new groom...like overseas!  I thought moving to Alabama was far away!

1. Post a picture of yourself:

Here's the most recent one.  Max and I in Blue Ridge, Georgia on Thanksgiving

2. How old are you?
26! Woah, when did that happen??

3. What is your zodiac sign?
I used to be a Virgo but didn't they all change a few years ago?  I don't know, I've never put any meaning behind that stuff.

4. What did you do on your last birthday?
A few days before my birthday I received my first speeding ticket ever, so I went to the courthouse the morning of my birthday to sign up for driving school. Yipee!  I think we went out to dinner or something that night, nothing too exciting, getting old is no fun!

5. What is one thing you'd like to accomplish before your next birthday?
I'd like to lose about 10 more pounds and maintain my weight loss.

6. What is your hair color?
Blonde, with a hint of green if I've been swimming too much in the summer :)

7. Have you ever dyed your hair?
Nope, Momma wouldn't let me when I was growing up and now I'm glad she wouldn't.  Good job, Momma!

8. What color are your eyes?
Green/Blue, they change a little bit if I'm wearing a bright blue or green shirt

9. Do you wear contacts or glasses?
No, I tried to wear some colored contacts for a brief period in high school and walked around twitching my eyes all day. 

10. Have you ever considered plastic surgery? What would you have done?
Never seriously, I'm such a wuss that I couldn't get past the pain of it!

11. Do you have any tattoos?
Oh dear, I knew this was coming.  I have one on my hip, the only one I'll ever have!  Remember I said I was a wuss, it huuuuuuurrrrt!  It's a really pretty swirly tree from a picture I took while I was in Africa, it means a lot to me.  I'm glad that I got it but I won't do it again.

12. Do you have any piercings?
I'm a rebel, I have two holes in each ear ;)

13. Left or right handed?
Right handed, my Dad and brother are both lefties though.

14. Do you have any pets?
2 Boston Terriers, that's not a secret!  Macey is almost 4 and Max is 9 months.

15. Share 2 habits?
I bite my nails, I try so hard not too but it's a habit I just can't seem to break!  I crack my knuckles a lot too, I know it's bad!

16. What's your ideal career?
Soccer mom :)

17. Is your life anything like it was 2 years ago?
Haha! Not at all!! Two years ago I was living in Jacksonville, Florida working night shift as a labor and delivery nurse.  I had just started dating a guy who lived about 2 hours away from me.  My oh my has my life changed!

18. Ever broken any bones?
Does a stress fracture count?  Last summer my foot starting hurting like crazy and got really swollen suddenly one night.  My coworkers (over-reacters!) convinced me that I had a life threatening blood clot and wheeled me over to the ER.  Nope, not a clot but a stress fracture.  I got some crutches and was to be totally off of it for 2 days until I could get in to see the orthopedic specialist.  I got fitted with a little boot thing and was able to work with it.  When I went in for my checkup the doc said it wasn't healing and I had to be on total rest for two weeks. Uggggghhh!  I lived on the 2nd floor at the time and had a dog, so my momma came and picked me up and I spent 2 weeks at my parent's house, recovering.  My foot was sore for a really long time and it's finally back to normal, 'cept for when it's really cold outside :)

19. Share something about yourself that others might think is weird.
I can get worked up and nervous about almost anything!  If someone called and said, "You won a free trip to Paris!" and I'd be all like, "Oh my, what will I wear? Where will the dogs stay? Too much to do in too little time, ahhhh!"

20. What are four things you can't live without?
My husband, family & friends, Diet Coke, my pups

21. Are you more like your Mom or Dad?
I would say that I'm a great mix of both. My sense of humor is spot on with my Dad's.  He is the funniest person I've ever been around. My personality is a lot like my mom's though.  I love my parents <3

22. Do you have any siblings?
A "little" brother who's about 6 inches taller than I am.  He's 23 and works as an EMT in Florida, I'm very proud of him.

23. Are you going out of town soon?
Heading to Salt Lake City, Utah in a few weeks! So excited to explore a new city with my hubby.

24. Do you have someone you can totally be yourself around?
I'm very blessed to have a bunch of family and friends who totally get me and support me even when I totally am myself ;)

25. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Here's what I hope:  I hope that we are settled here in Alabama and really feel like we're at home. I hope that we have a child by then and that we have friends and family come visit often!

Alright folks, that's enough for today.  It's nice to have random link ups and surveys for those days that you're just feeling uninspired!  Tomorrow, I'll try to come up with something a little more exciting to talk about!

I know I've said this several times but today we're meeting with the builder's rep to hopefully completely sign off on our plans for the house.  I can't wait to get into the design center and pick out everything for our home!  I'm so thankful that Baron (and my) schedule allows us to meet up with these people at all hours during the day.  I don't know how people build/buy a house when they work an 8 to 5 job that doesn't have that kind of flexibility!

I didn't know you went to Africa! I have wanted to go for YEARS but things have just never lined up like they were suppose to, something always happened.
