Monday Mixer… on a Wednesday

Inspired yet again by my favorite photographer-blogger Yasmin Sarai, who was herself inspired by famous designer Promise Tangeman, here are a dozen random facts about me šŸ™‚

I learned to read when I was 3. My preschool teacher said so. My mom thinks I just memorized books. I guess we’ll never really know. (Cue Twilight Zone music…)

I never cry in sappy movies. I remember tearing up while watching The Prince of Egypt when I was 10… that’s as far as I’ve gotten.

I LOVE babies! Holding them, playing with them, cuddling them… it brings me deeper joy than most things do. Babysitting is the best! šŸ™‚

I was an incredibly picky eater for most of my life. Only in the past 5 years or so have I started to get over it. For example, this past Saturday, I ate lobster for the first and only time in my life. It was an accident… I thought it was cheese ravioli. Woops!

Tulips are my favorite flowers.

I hate the color orange (except in flowers). Coral is passable, though.

The first CD I ever got was an 11th birthday gift from my friend, Ricky. It was Steven Curtis Chapman’s Speechless. I didn’t even have a CD player yet!

Running errands and reorganizing things are generally very calming to me. I feel very accomplished and at peace.

I went to Egypt for two weeks with my family and others when I was 17.

I had my first-ever taste of alcohol a month after I turned 21. In 3rd grade, we swore in front of our whole class never to take a sip of alcohol until we were 21. My conscience wouldn’t allow me to break that promise… so I kept it!

I like singing harmonies to songs, but not in public.

I love almost every kind of fruit. Sooooo delicious šŸ™‚
