10 Things You May Not Know About Me
I'm excited to announce my inaugural "10 Things Tuesday" post. Each week, I will share a list of ten things - from things I like to interesting facts about me - there is no telling what I will come up with!
For those of you who blog, I'd love to have you participate too! Just grab the code for the button from the right sidebar, write a blog post with your version of the week's "10 things" and comment below sharing the link to your post.
If you don't blog, but you would like to share, feel free to simply leave a comment with your 10 things below!
* I'm new to this kind of blog/link swapping, but I hope to have a few participants. It'll be a fun way to find more interesting blogs to read and to learn more about each other! Have fun!
10 Things...You May Not Know About Me
I was a competitive gymnast for 9 years and earned the title of
KY state champ on the balance beam in 1990.
In college, I got a butterfly tattoo on my lower back (really original, I know)
that I tried to pass off as a stick-on fake when my mom discovered it when
I was home for the holidays. (She pretended to buy it then, but told me
many years later that she knew immediately it was real).
By the time I was 20, I had 6 foreign countries stamped on my passport:
Japan, Hong Kong, France, England, the Bahamas, and Jamaica
I cannot eat a chocolate chip cookie, spaghetti or
Hamburger Helper without drinking a glass of milk.
I never finish the last sip of milk in the glass.
It doesn't taste the same to me. Strange, I know.
I was kinda-sorta a "child star". I was in over 15 commercials,
had a blink-and-you'll-miss-it part in the feature film "Men Don't Leave"
(starring Jessica Lange and Chris O'Donnell) and I was on the side of a doll box.
That's right, a doll box. Like one that was sold in toy stores across the country!
(However it was later pulled off the shelves as it was considered controversial.)
When I was 4, I was nearly blinded by a high heel shoe.
My friend and I were playing house. We both wanted to be the mom and in
order to be the mom you had to wear the shoes. But I was a guest at her house
so her mom made her hand 'em over. Instead, she threw it, clipping just under
my eye socket. It bled a lot and required stitches and I have a scar to prove it.
Although my husband and I went to the same college in
Kentucky, we actually met in Daytona, FL.
I have a total girl-crush on Reese Witherspoon.
I still sleep with a blankie. My husband still makes fun of me.
Note: This was way more difficult than I thought. It took me forever to come up with this list and seeing as it is barely Tuesday anymore, I'll understand if you want to wait until next week to participate. Just consider this one a practice round for me ;)
