Siete cosas sobre mi...

Seven things about me. I was tagged by the lovely Veronika to post seven randoms about me and since I am in Atlanta, its snowing with nothing to blog, sitting in a hotel room alone, here I go...

(1) I'll first start out with the most important thing to me--the husband. My husband and I met in high school through my best friend. He was "dating" her and I was "dating" his best friend. I have dating in " " due to the fact that what really is dating at the age of 14-15. We started talking and we have been together ever since---that's right. We have been together over 12 years and as much as I think I will regret this, here is a before and after pic.

(Ah So embarrassing!)

(2) I am very creative and love all thing crafting. I like sewing, painting, photography, and scrapbooking. I could easily take a month off of work and do nothing but projects. I have seen paintings at stores like Pier One that I loved and been inspired to paint something similar for my home (which technically may be copyright infringement?! Who knows). As you have seen in other posts, I am beginning to sew and would love to be able to make dresses and skirts that are the perfect fit, design, and fabric for me. When I was first out of college and had the "OMG I am an adult" nervous breakdown, I made a business plan to open a scrapbook store. I had everything decided and mapped out. All I was missing was the experience and money (at least in my opinion lol). My husband is a really great photographer and had a picture, seen below, selected by a national trust company to use at their Christmas cards last year. Love love love creativity!

This is the old federal courthouse in town that is now a performing arts center.

(3) I love TV. I love my TIVO and would be lost without it. I watch some really good shows and then of course I find myself watching the shows that are really not that good but are so addicting. My fave show of all time is Friends. I have seen all of these episodes at least a hundred times each and I can quote any scene and relate the show to most situations in my life---pathetic I know ;-)  Sex and the City is another show that I have watched since the beginning and have seen so much. Currently on my fave show list are: Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, Project Runway, 90210, The Hills, The City, Gossip Girl, So You Think You Can Dance, Biggest Loser, and I think that's all I can think of now. I love watching TV and a Sunday afternoon spent in PJ's catching up on lost TV is a perfect day for me.

(4)  I am left-handed and think that leads to my creativity. I get this from my mom, who is also left-handed along with one of my two brothers, and my sister. So out of the 6 people in my family, 4 of us are lefties, pretty unusual I think considering only 7-10% of the population is left handed.

(5)  I hate inconsiderate people. This is my pet peeve and the level ranges from the people that throw trash out car windows to people imposing on my life. I hate when people do not spend 15 seconds to consider if their actions affect or impose onto the lives of others before acting. I equate this to selfishness and it really bugs me. My husband tells me this peeve causes me a lot of grief because I am continually surprised when people constantly let me down in this area. I would like to consider myself a very considerate person as I am constantly aware of my actions. I'm getting annoyed just writing that little blurb :-)

(6)  At the ripe old age of 27 I have grey hair! Not one or two but a lot...well maybe a lot is a little dramatic but if you were to look through the top of my head, I bet you could see 20 hairs within like 3 minutes. This has happened in the last year or two and it really surprises me. I am actually going to dye my hair back dark all one color very shortly to get rid of highlights and to cover grey---cannot believe it myself.

(7)  I'm addict to Coke---not the narcotic but rather the soda. I know its horrible for your health, body, teeth, and everything else but I love it. I crave the taste and the caffeine. For my NY Resolution I have promised myself only one a day but I could easily have 3-5 Coke's a day. Love is not even the word!

There ya go---7 things about me. That was a little harder than I thought to come up with. I think most of the bloggers I read have done this but if you haven't I am tagging you now---post 7 things about you so we can get a glimpse of life in your world.
