a speed date with me #2

you can see my first speed date here


I was in Girl Scouts for 13 years (yep. from kindergarten all the way through my senior year of high school. and it was awesome)

I have moved a total of 10 times in my life

As a kid I played soccer and softball and I was terrible at both

The last book I read [and finished] was Blue Like Jazz

I have a younger brother, an older half brother and an older half sister

My spiritual gifts are leadership and teaching

I love theology

For my 12th birthday, I had a scrapbooking party

My husband and I read a book together every night in bed [well, I read until he falls asleep]

I enjoy watching golf on television and my husband is embarassed by how many golfers I can name

In 5th grade, I was the Student Council President

I've never seen any Lord of the Rings movies

My favorite movie of all time is Wayne's World

My favorite book is 1984

Isaac, my son, is almost 17 months old and refuses to say anything other than "mow mow", "elldo" and "daht!" [translation: lawnmower, yellow, that!]

I was canoe Red Cross certified in Jr High

Our wedding reception was in a trailer park club house [what can I say, I'm a sucker for free!]

I was a red-head for several years but it just got too expensive to maintain

I've worked the swing shift, graveyard, and the 4am shift [all regularly] and hated them all

I grew up in Las Vegas and no, I was never a stripper, a cocktail waitress, or a Black Jack dealer [though I've known several people who have been all or some of those]

Blue Bell has ruined all other ice cream for me

linking up with Finding Beauty in the Ordinary


  1. Blue Like Jazz is on my summer reading list!

    And your wedding reception sounds like so much fun :)

  2. I really want to read Blue Like Jazz!

  3. you are so cute and charming :) & you make me laugh! i'm glad you were never a stripper, cocktail waitress, or black jack dealer haha!
    how fun that you were in girl scouts for so long - i never was but it looks like a blast :)

    hope your move is going well and you're doing well, sweet friend. love you!
