It’s the mom here. Aimee has encouraged me to write a 5 Fact Friday post but I have put it off until now. This is the very first and hopefully not the last. I just had a bit of a hard time thinking of what could be of interest about me. Not that I am boring – but maybe you will think I am after this post. I do have a pretty mild life.
So here we go:
Fact #1: I dare say my best physical feature is my crowning glory, otherwise known as my hair. If there is something that catches a person eye about me that would be my hair. Complete strangers will tell me they really like my hair, there was this gentleman that I would pass on my morning walks and he started to call me “bh” for beautiful hair. Ha ha – every time we passed. It can be wild and crazy and sometimes it can be well behaved.
(this happens to be my passport picture – the best one I have ever had taken)
I keep it medium length now but the first time it was ever cut was when I was 8 and it was down to my waist. And I used to be a blonde – naturally – it started to change color around age 6 and just got darker and darker. When it was long it was quite straight while I am living in California (with the humidity) it is curly – those are all natural.
Fact #2: I am crazy about notebooks and pens. A couple of weeks ago when one of the teachers in my church brought new pens and notebooks for the girls. I was so silly because I just kept saying “those pens are awesome”, “where did you get these pens”, “I have to go tomorrow”. Which I promptly did, I picked up 2 cute new little notebooks and a set of colored pens – COLORED PENS – they write in colored ink, and I think it is so COOL!
Fact #3: I have claimed one of my family’s old antiques – a wooden rocking horse with its original paint. I don’t know how old the rocking horse is. I do know that I rode it when I was a little girl and my siblings all claim to have ridden it since they were young. So maybe its not antique, but as far as I am concerned it belongs to me. Craig fixed it up a little so the springs are new and it is ready for rides.
Fact #4: I only watch one TV show on a regular basis and that is So You Think You Can Dance. Ten years ago when SYTYCD first premiered Aimee and I enjoyed watching it every week together. You might say it was our special time together. I have continued to watch it every summer and look forward to the new season. But you want to know something really crazy, Craig and I don’t have/receive TV, not any kind – no cable, no satellite, no Netflix. That brings a small challenge to watching SYTYCD, I can only watch it on Hulu, I don’t even have Hulu Plus, which means I see the shows 30 days after it first airs. I am only up to the top 14, so don’t any of you spoil the ending because I have quite a ways to go.
Fact #5: My favorite cookie is a good oatmeal raisin cookie. I love them soft and cinnamony. I love the raisins, the oatmeal. I will even claim it is healthy to eat perhaps even for breakfast.
So there you have it, my first 5 fact Friday. What did you think? What are some facts you would like to know about me for next time? Until then…..
