I'm so normal that coming up with 7 strange/weird facts about myself will be a real stretch (anyone buying that?). Of course I think I'm totally normal and sane so instead I'll share what other people might find strange/weird:

1. I do not like jeans or T-shirts. I have nothing against them for other people and have even been known to buy them for others. I personally cannot stand how they feel and have never understood why people think they are so comfortable.

2. I love to be scared. Not life in jeopardy scared... more adrenalin rush scared! I'm totally not afraid of heights at all and love things that fling you high up or down in the air or is fast and really love the combination of both things. For many years I have wanted to sky dive. I have not done it yet but it is one thing I'm determined to do. I've done many other height and speed rush things. Motorcycles terrify me in the good way. I love hitching a ride from my Dad when we visit. (when can we go again Dad??).

3. I am outrageously girly. I prefer dresses and high heals if I have somewhere to wear them to (unless PJ's is an option, but even then my favorite is a long satin nightgown). I love to shop, dress up, change my hair, don't like to get dirty, and watch chic-flicks. The only non-stereotypical "girl" thing that I don't enjoy is shoe shopping or owning a lot of shoes.

4. Being a home schooling/stay at home Mom is sometimes a struggle for me. I think the benefits are totally worth it and am so grateful to be able to do it. However, it does not come naturally to me at all. I enjoyed working in the big world of grown ups. My favorite jobs have all been very socially oriented and I loved being around lots of people. Fortunately I have really great kids that are so fun to be with and a husband that is totally understanding and jumps in to help as soon as he walks through the door.

5. I love to dance. At home, in a public place, when I'm happy, when I'm sad... you name it! Just turn on some music and get outta my way (or come dance with me!). I'm not a good dancer but that's never stopped me before.

6. I made it in the newspaper just for being born. It's true! I was born on January 3rd and was the first baby born in that county that year. The county had a contest that I think was called Stork Derby, or something like that, and my parents won over 50 prizes from local businesses and a picture of my Mom and me in the paper. I was nearly 2 weeks late so I guess I figured I owed my Mom something to get on her good side. ;) How about that for a grand entrance into this world?

7. Favorite Day-- APRIL FOOLS DAY!!! I LOVE this day and am always thinking of what to do "this year". However, my friends and family have ruined my joy for this day as I've learned they actually call and email each other reminding each other of what day it is and not to answer my calls or believe anything I say. Bah humbug! I need new friends and family (just for the one day).

My turn to tag:

You're it!

Thanks for humoring me...and it was "humorous" since you seriously had me panicking talking about the height thing. My heart was pounding just hearing about it. Sick. :)

My husband made it into the newspaper for being born too. His birthday is January 1. Nineteen years later, his brother made it into the newspaper for being born too. James' birthday isn't until January 10. He wasn't the first baby in the county, but he was the first baby in the small farming community that they called home.

I answered your tag on my blog.

Hi Angela,
I couldn't find any email address for you so I hope you read these comments!
My husband and I are waiting for our twin boys from Haiti and I have loved reading your blog - you are such an encouraging and fun person!
We are going to be down at Disneyland at the end of the month (we live up by Seattle) and I would LOVE to be able to meet you!
I have an adoption journal on Journey to Me under Isaiah if you would like to know who we are.
Please let me know if you would be interested in getting together!
