1. 25 Randoms

1. List 20 random facts about yourself
Reference Here for the Month of March 30 Things Project

I wrote up a similar post for this question back in 2010, only it had 25.  I'm going to revisit that list, see what I'd still definitely keep, cross through what I want to change to a new random fact, and elaborate.  Basically, lets see where my viewpoint has gone in 2 years.

Note: Black writing=2010, Red writing=2012, Cross-throughs= Want to change it to something more recently relevant

1. Cursing at things that are bothering me makes me feel better. So true. Still. Judge away.

2. I started a journal of the places I have traveled. I hope to continue filling it in until my first child gets married; I want to give it to them on their wedding day so that they can see all of the places we traveled and then they can continue it with their new journeys. Want to add more to the travel list with TBear.

3. I am far more sarcastic than necessary  You always hear the saying More Money, More Problems.  ShutYourFace! I'd really like to give it a whirl and determine that statement on my own. Thankyouverymuch.

4. I finally followed my heart instead of my head and I believe it to be the best decision I've made in my life so far. Loving my man will be the death of me.

5. All 18 years of schooling, trying to read a book was a horribly painful task; now that I'm all done school, there isn't enough time in the day for the books I want to read....just thinking about it right now makes me want to stop writing this and go read. My Book Tab is embarrassing and horribly behind (like 6 books behind at this point), but I do love to read!

6. I want my wedding ring to be a tattoo; it should be something I'm excited about telling people, but the snubbed noses from those I have told so far make me keep it to myself. I don't talk about it at all now.

7. One thing I miss very much from college is the Happy Cup; it was such a fun thing and a great conversation piece during the good times, and such a blessing and a secret savior in the bad time. Another thing I miss is Low Key (college A Capella group), or just singing in general.

8. College debt is something that burdens my mind every day; I couldn't be more jealous envious of my friends who were fortunate enough to not have this on their shoulders

9. I wish I could believe in my abilities as much as my mom believes in my abilities; I'll tell her that one day I'm so grateful for all of the strong, brave, passionate, intelligent women in my life.

10. I appreciate that I can accurately determine a persons character in the first few moments of meeting them. Still haven't been proven wrong with this one, even when I've given the benefit of the doubt.

11. My mom got a photograph of Joe Biden signed for me when I was in 1st grade; it's one of the coolest things she has gotten for me, not because he is now the Vice-president, but because my mom is a die-hard Republican. I'm a Bravo TV Addict.  All of it.  Top Chef. Housewives. WWHL. Million Dollar Listing. Bethenny(LOVE her).  On any given day, you can find at least 3 Bravo Shows on the DVR waiting to be watched.

12. Texas and St. Louis have made me appreciate the East Coast far more than I ever believed possible; I never knew how much I was taking it for-granted.  On the same note, really trying to take advantage of appreciating St Louis before we leave.

13. One of my greatest pet peeves is when I'm driving down the highway and someone has their turn-signal on in front of you and doesn't realize it is on. I attempt to pass them, but then I find myself checking in my rear view mirror to see if they still have it on or not. On the same note, in true Midwest form, biggest pet peeve is people driving UNDER the speed limit.  Yes, East Coasters, it is a real and common occurrence out here that drives (get the pun?!) me NUTS!!!

14. Now that I have my Masters Degree, I need to figure out what I'm going to be when I grow up; I know that's not how it's supposed to work but that's how it's happened. Sad that wouldn't change this fact and yet 2 years have gone by.

15. I want to travel to Australia; I promise that I will make it there one day

16. The only part of my body that I truly love is my tattoo; everything else I find flawed; I wish I could admire the flaws. I love putting together puzzles.  Call me an 80 year old woman about it, I'm ok with it.  It's so fun.  It's my Christmas Tradition, but I could do puzzles any time of the year and be excited over it.

17. Growing up, I always wanted a sister. Now that I'm all grown up, two of the most important women in my life are my sister-in-laws.

18. I absolutely love wine.  I love trying new vineyards and new years, and trying to taste the fruits, and picking out scents, and judging the color. My hunch is that I like it so much because there is such a science to good wine.  My favorite reds right now are Cabernet Sauvignon's, and whites are Chardonnays. All still true.

19. I miss the ocean

20. It's ironic that I consider myself a guys-girl, I definitely get along better with men, but the very closest friends that I have in my life are women I'm running a Half-Marathon April 15th and am STOKED about it.  It's been a great way to wrestle some stress and think through problems while running long distances. Loving it. 
21. E-A-G-L-E-S....love them, love them, love them, then, now, always

22. Absolutely in no hurry about it, but I am so excited for the day that I am a mother. I think I'm going to be an awesome mom. 

23. Tulips will always make me smile; I truly love them

24. I think the people I miss the most right now in the whole entire world are my 4 nieces. They are getting so big and I feel like I am missing out on so much of their little worlds.  I hope they realize even though I'm so far away, that I think about them everyday and wish I was there 

25. The thing got hauled to Austin and now to St. Louis...one of my goals is to re-acquaint myself with my piano. Right now, we are speaking different languages. I can't wait to garden again.  Hurry up Spring!!
