You Rock My World!

I just saw that I now have 100 followers! THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH for reading my blog! I'm so happy that I've met so many awesome bloggy friends in these past couple of months. I talk to my husband about you all like I "know" you in "real life." But seriously, you guys rock!

I’m so honored that Sweet, Sassy, and Always Classy gave me the “Honest Scrap Award”. As part of this award I have to list at 10 honest things about myself. I tried to pick new fun facts that I didn't list here, here or here. So here goes...

  1. I like to cook, but rarely do. Since I travel for work a lot I hardly have a chance to buy fresh food and make meals before I leave town again. Our fridge pretty much only has condiments and beer in it. Sad.
  2. After a fairly secular upbringing, I became a follower of Jesus when I was 21-years-old. I now consider my relationship with God the most important thing my life.
  3. For the last five years I’ve keep a “Scrapbook Diary” (I’ll post more about this some other time). I fill it with items I cut out of magazines and paste together to express my life/mood at that time. It’s actually a really cathartic thing to do and cool memory to have.
  4. I have a great sense of direction. I rarely get lost driving and have the “grid” of Southern California pretty much memorized.
  5. In college I lived in my giant 65-girl Sorority house for two years and sometimes I really miss those crazy days.
  6. I read “The Economist” weekly since my Husband has a subscription, but I’m always a week behind since he reads the most current week, and I get that one after he’s done.
  7. I get really motion-sick, especially in cars. I almost always volunteer to drive when my friends and I go someplace because of this.
  8. My parents are both Professors and sometimes I feel a little guilty for not perusing a degree beyond my BA (but I guess there’s still time right?)
  9. I’ve seen the movie “Jerry Maguire” at least 30 times. For some reason I became obsessed with it High School, still watch it from time to time, and can often find situations to quote it.
  10. I got a sewing machine for Christmas, but I have still not opened up the box it's in. I think I’m kind of scared to start using it my own.

The also received the "This Blog Measures Up" award from Shalay.

Thanks so much girls! You are such sweethearts!

Good stuff! I am so glad that you made the decision to follow Christ! He is so good, and I'm glad you're blogging so you can share all the He is doing in your life! =)

So during the Super Bowl we were all looking around for Rod Tidwell because the Cardinals were playing...and then they showed Cuba in the stands! Hilarious!

P.S. You would be my favorite friend because I HATE to drive! Not sure why...just do :)

Jess said...

I love reading random things about people, lol.

We'd get along so well.... I HATE to drive.

I always think it's so awesome that people find Jesus "later" in life. I was raised to believe in Him, so I hear a lot of the "Well, you just believe that because you were raised to." lines. I know I make a conscious decision to believe in Him.... but, it's always great when someone who wasn't really raised that way makes the same choice.

You really should open that sewing machine! I'm no expert with sewing, but my mom is an expert seamstress and has taught me enough that I can do simple stuff. I recommend starting off easy, I tried once to make gloves, I should have started with a quilted pillowcase. Its really fun though once you get rolling, and its nice to see that you can create something out of just a little fabric. =]
