30 Day Challenge

I saw this 30 Day Challenge on Vanessa's blog, Grow Old With Me, and thought it looked like fun, so I thought I would give it a go.

Day #1 --Introduce Yourself (15 facts)

1.) I've been married to my husband Mike for 6 years. We have been together since we were 18 years old.

2.) After dealing with infertility issues, we are now blessed with 4 month twin girls, Taylor and Morgan.

3.) I worked in retail since I was 16, and recently left my full time supervisor position in order to spend more time with my babies.

4.) I love to read, and even though it is a challenge to find time to read, I usually have a couple books on my nightstand at any given time.

5.) Scrapbooking used to be my hobby. I say used to, because I haven't done any scrapbooking in the longest time. We're talking almost a year. I still have a love for it, but it's just something that I don't have the time for. Yet.

6.) Favorite seasons are summer and fall. Right now I am loving the weather!

7.) I have a thing for colored Sharpies and Post It notes. This coorelates to my love for list making. It just makes more sense when it's written in color! :)

8.) I have a serious sweet tooth. I blame my parents, both of whom also have a sweet tooth. I think it must be a genetic thing! I always have chocolate of some sort on hand, whether it's M&Ms, or Oreos or chocolate ice cream.

9.) Constantly trying to grow in my faith. Prayer has become one of those things that I cling to, especially in times of struggle. But I really need to work on praying more in the good times!

10.) I need to stay away from Etsy. Have you seen all of the cool stuff on there? Oh my word. My latest buy? Flowery headbands for the girls, as well as a key wristlette for myself.

11.) I can't go a day without coffee. Not because I am addicted to the caffeine, but because I love it. It makes me a happier person in the morning.

12.) I am a worrier. I have tried to break this habit, but you know what they say about old habits. I always have something on my mind that I am worrying about.

13.) We have a dog named Cami that used to be the center of our attention, until the twins came, of course! She is very good with the girls, and even whines when they start crying. She is such a sweet dog!

14.) I grew up as a Navy brat. Born in South Carolina, and have lived in Hawaii, Maine, and Illinois. I feel a special affection for those who serve in the military and think we need to do more as a country to support those who fight for our everyday freedom. (ok, coming down from my soapbox now)

15.) I spend too much time hooked to my Blackberry. I seriously need to put it down. The person that invented the smart phone is both a genius and an idiot. Now millions of people are more connected but paying less attention. Ugh!! And I am one of them!
