25 (+5) Random Things About Me

I was recently tagged to do '25 Random Things About Me' on Facebook. I feel like I have done these things a million times, but I can always think of more things to type about myself.

Due to the fact that I have nothing to blog about today, I decided to just copy and paste this onto my blog. But I added 5 more so its a little different for those friends that also look at my facebook!

1. I pick the seams out of ALL of my T-shirts. I have trained myself to not do it on my nice shirts.

2. Luke was my first boyfriend and the only guy I have ever kissed.

3. I get depressed after every one of my vacations. Even if I am ready to come home I still get depressed when I get home. The only time this didn’t happen to me was after our honeymoon. I was ready to get home and start our life together. This also happens after Christmas.

4. No matter how corny they are I truly LOVE watching Lifetime movies.

5. The 2 years of our relationship before Luke proposed I lived every major event thinking he was going to propose (birthdays, holidays, every Friday night). Do you know how disappointing an iPod clock/radio is when you are expecting a diamond?!?!?!

6. I am a crier.

7. I have amazing memory, for weird things. I can’t remember stuff I need to, but if you want me to tell you what you were wearing the day we met in eighth grade, I can probably tell you.

8. Math is not my friend. In fact it could be my enemy. In college I only had to take one math class and I put it off until it was the only class I needed to graduate. I passed with a 60.0%. Passing is passing.

9. I tend to fall down stairs a lot

10. We have had two days off of work and everybody is talking about how they are ready to get back - I'm not, I could have an ice day everyday. I was not born to work.

11. I am extremely modest. I didn’t wear a two-piece bathing suit in public until my senior year of high school and I still can’t force myself to use the word bikini.

12. I have a phobia of having another lung collapse, before my wedding I kept people at a safe distance as to make sure nobody could bump into me and collapse my lung. I'm completely serious.

13. I love craft shows. They rock my world

14. My senior year of high school I quit drinking Soda pop. I was so disciplined, I would only drink water. My sophomore year of college I took a drink of diet coke and it was all-downhill from there.

15. I think my husband is the most amazing man and I am so proud to be his wife.

16. Whenever I meet people I always worry about the first impression I make and just assume that they don’t like me. Some people would call this insecurity.

17. My biggest fear (currently) is that I will not get to stay home with my future children. I am working on not letting this consume me.

18. I love zebra print anything.

19. I HATE dancing. I have feared dancing at my wedding my whole life. Praise the Lord its over.

20. I love looking at my wedding pictures. It was as perfect as a day could get.

21. Actually I love looking at anybody’s wedding pictures. It’s usually the first thing I ask for when I visit somebody’s home.

22. One of my favorite snacks is a big juicy lemon covered in salt.

23. I try to eat a Chocolate Chip Cookie everyday. I believe it is good for the soul.

24. The most giving person I have ever met is my sister Kati, anytime I show interest in something of hers (for example a pair of designer jeans) she lets me have them or borrow them for a long time. I try not to take advantage of this.

25. I have amazing internet stalking skills - they have actually improved over time.

26. I share a birthday with my grandma and every year on our birthday we call each other and wish the other one a Happy Birthday, and every time my grandma tells me that I was the best present she ever got. This is always very special to me.

27. I have TRIED to get into Twilight. I read the entire first book and almost half of the second one. I finally had to give it up. I have nothing against it other then I thought it was completely boring. I apologize to all of you Twilight'ers out there.

28. I talk to my mom on the phone everyday and when I was wedding planning I called her 10+ times a day. I think I drove her as crazy as a child can drive their mom. She went to Europe for a week of the wedding planning (keep in mind my engagement was only 4 months) and it was quite traumatic for me. Every time I would call my dad (who was at home) with a wedding question he would say, I don't care, just do what you need to do. That was no help at all! I was relieved when my mom got back in US soil.

29. I had no idea what the term 'changing the oil in your car' meant until about 2 years ago. I've been driving for 7 years.

30. I once worked for a Christian Podcasting company. The owner of the company would interview Christian authors and musicians. I got to talk to lots of well known people on the phone. It was pretty neat. Once I talked to Luke's favorite singer on the phone so naturally, I got his number off of the caller ID and programmed it into my cell phone. I had no intention of using it I just wanted to keep it in my phone in case I ever needed it, for an emergency. Then I washed my cell phone in the washing machine.
P.S. If you do this, your phone won't work anymore.


Happy Friday!!

Fun!! I did this on my blog too, completely for a lack of anything better to post.

I was totally in shock about your favorite snack--I never heard of that! And oh, I love watching Lifetime movies too. They always suck me right in! :)

Rach@In His Hands said...

I was just tagged like 10 times on Facebook to do this!

Lifetime is cheesy and SOO good. Love it.

I am HoRriBlE at math. Somehow I got placed in the hard class in college. After many pleas with the school to let me out of the class(to no avail), I squeaked by with the worst possible grade I could get to pass. There was much rejoicing!

The people who say that algebra and so on are important in life tell lies.

Lauren said...

I've loved reading these on Facebook so I'm definitely going to do this on my blog! I just love reading the random things about people!

Ashley said...

I love all your random facts! With some of them I felt like I was ready about myself haha! I too am really insecure about people liking me, know nothing about cars and have exceptional stalking skills :-)

Glamorous Life of a House Wife said...

Girl, have you had a lung collapse!? If so - OUCH! I loved your random things - you truly do crack me up. And I think we'd be friends.

Candice said...

This was so fun! I just got tagged for this on facebook as well so you might see it pop up on my blog soon!

I especially liked the one about you expecting Luke to propose on every major event. I lived this way for about 2 months before Jon proposed. I can't imagine two years...how traumatic!

Rachel said...

I love how you did more than 25!!! Great to learn more about you; love these posts!

PinkSass said...

Love the list. Thanks for sharing!

LuLu Lake said...

I too fall down stairs a lot. Only I usually fall going up and not so much down.
And I completely understand no. 5. It was completely dissappointing getting a memory foam matteress pad for Christmas this year when all I want and still want is a diamnond! Oh my day will come someday :-)
Have a great weekend!

Kristin @ Blue Skies said...

THE Stephanie said...

I love reading these! So fun!!

Stephen and Lacey said...

Megan ~ the fact that you are so full of random likes/dislikes and obsessions is without a doubt one of my favorite things about you. I think I am pretty boring in comparison because every time I get a list like that I can not get past 7. I love this about you!!

I loved the first book of Twilight but only made it through 3/4 of the 2nd. I will not read on. I too was bored.

Blue-Eyed Bride said...

so sweet that luke was the first person and only person you've kissed. i love that.

Rebecca Jo said...

You are just the cutest thing ever! That your husband is your first kiss ... that is so freaking romantic!

Heather said...

This makes me love you even more....if that is possible! We have ALOT in common! (I am thinking about doing the baby's bedding in pink/brown zebra!!) Have a great weekend, Megan!

Mimi Elise said...

Haha, it's really funny - I have heard a couple people tell me that Twilight it boring. But, I thought I should let you know that every time I see your blog and see your husband, he reminds me of Jacob. Wow - he looks JUST like him, NOT in the movie but in the book.
Have you met Jacob yet(in the book)? Jacob's my favorite character! :)

Love Lace said...

Your blog is so cute! My cell phone decided to go swimming with my sheets in college! It must have been a very bad swimmer, because of course it did not survive!!! Have a wonderful weekend!

LYNDEE said...

Caroline said...

Trina said...

So fun! I am glad you posted yours. I love reading about other people's quirks. Makes me feel kinda normal. PS Your quirks make you even more adorable.

Holly said...

These things are awesome!

Maths is my enemy too! I was never so happy as I was when I finished high school and never had to deal with the darn thing ever again!

As for Diet Coke, yeah, I'm a fan of that too. :)

That's really awesome about you and your grandmother having the same birthday! :D

Julie said...

The seams in every shirt??? My granny would have yanked those babies up and sewn them back together!!! This post was fun to read!!

Andrea said...

I completely agree with #19...I too hate dancing! I only danced twice at my reception (with P, and then with my dad), and I was soooo uncomfortable. So glad it's over. Now my 10 year reunion is coming up this summer, and I have to figure out how to get out of dancing :/

Mrs. Cup said...

This was fun! I am really good at internet stalking too!! haha!

Carolyn said...

Gah you're so dang cute! And you know what's funny??! I tend to fall UP stairs a lot. So weird and I hate it!!
