i don't normally do this, but for you LP, i will.
here are the rules :

1. List 7 random things about yourself that people may not know.
2. Link the person who sent this to you, and leave a comment on their blog so that their readers can visit yours.
3. Post the rules on your blog.
4. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post, linking their blog. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

1. I had heart surgery when I was 5 years old. July 5, 1989 is my original happy heart day. So Cody and I chose July 5, 2008 to be our happy heart day. Aww. Isn't that so sweet? I mean I know I'm biased, but I think knowing the story behind it helps people understand why we chose the July 4th weekend!

2. This random fact I am somewhat ashamed to share, but it was years ago so I've moved passed it. I failed the driver's test THREE times before getting my license. yes. three. I know. I don't think I need to say anymore than that.

3. I'm marrying the first boy I met at HSU, who was also the first boy I had a crush on at college. I love our story.

4. I have (had?) my own business, Father of Joy! Designs. One summer I made a very nice chunk of change selling canvases I painted. It was a lot of work but a lot of fun. Have you ever heard of J. Wilde in San Angelo? I would love to own a store like that!!

5. I sing off key on purpose. Only on road trips when I'm by myself. For some reason I find it entertaining to purposefully sound horribly off key from a song. But, I mean it's not like I'm really on key to begin with, so....

6. Pretty Woman was the first rated R movie I ever watched. My mom fast forwarded through the sex scenes. To this day it's still one of my favorite movies, along with Dirty Dancing. Oldies but goodies. In fact I may try to talk Cody into incorporating "I had the time of my life.." into our wedding. I'll let you know how it goes.

7. I'm obsessed about my eyebrows. I can't stand stray hairs! Maybe too much to share in a blog but this is my random facts, right?

Ok. I tag Shara, Tracy, C.C., Kacy, Cody (he won't do it) yeah i think thats all I got...


  1. I'll never be able to look at your eyebrows the same way again.

  2. Seriously! Now that I know the eyebrow thing, I will be especially vigilant about mine.

  3. ahem. Not only do I "not usually" do these things, I don't do these things. So sorry. It's the benefit of being old and set in my ways.
    However, knowing that you had to take your driving test THREE times . . . oh, gonna have to tease you on that one really soon.

  4. I forgot about this until today. So, I finally did it. Just thought I'd let you know.


Thanks for commenting- I love hearing from readers!
