Just a sampling:

I secretly listen to the christian rock station and not so secretly to the classical station on the radio.
I hate sharing an umbrella.  No reason really, I'm just greedy about my space.
I would bake cookies every single day if I didn't have to suffer the consequences.
A roommate once told me that you should always eat two cookies or two cupcakes to balance out your hips.  I think that is a great philosophy.
I always wear pajamas to bed even though they sometimes ruck up around my knees in my sleep.
Even when my contacts are killing me, I will suffer just so I don't have to wear my glasses.
In the morning the first thing I do is drink a half glass of orange juice.  The second thing is check my email.
I have ugly knees.
I don't know how to send a text message.  I tried to send one on Paul's phone tonight and gave up after one sentence.
My eyelashes and eyebrows are transparent/white which really bugs me.
I prefer homecooked meals almost all the time. 
Pink is not my best color.  It's navy.
I love to exercise but I am one of the slowest runners I know. 
This year I turn thirty.  Three-Oh.  Bummer.
On Valentine's Day Paul gives me chocolate covered strawberries which are my favorite.
I have a crush on every picture of Paul as a 12-14 year old. 
I prefer to think that my eyes are grey rather than blue.  Paul and I have fought over this.

I'm not sure why I wanted to post all of this.  But thank you for stopping by.


  1. This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.

  2. Whoa, I just had to delete a junk comment that just showed up on that last post. That is super weird. Maybe I should re-enable that little word test thingy.

  3. oooooh. thought-provoking. (sorry about no caps, new kid = one-handed typing) several comments:

    1. NO ONE likes to share umbrellas unless the umbrella is enormous and even then, it's just awkward. how close do you stand? where do you hold it? so perplexing.

    2. mmmmm, cookies.

    3. thirty rocks, or so I hear. All my favorite people keep turning thirty. embrace it!

    4. no texting, amy? really? are you sure you're not turning FORTY? bahaha.

  4. Wow Kathleen. I feel super honored that you commented on my blog like the week you had a new little one. You are awesome. Bang-a-rang.

  5. This was a fun post to read. Thanks for sharing.

    By the way, I don't text either. In fact, I disabled the texting option on my plan so I don't have to worry about it.

    And, you can't be a slower runner than me. Seriously. It's embarrassing. I try to blame the double jogger for slowing me down but most of the time I make Stephan push it.

  6. Amy-
    Love the post. The one that made me laugh out loud was your crush on young Paul pictures. Especially since I knew him then :) Sometime I'll have to pull out my old pictures and see if there's any I should send you...

  7. Nice. I also secretly listen to the Christian Rock Station sometimes. No one likes to share umbrellas, and I think everyone prefers homecooked meals, most people just prefer not to cook them.

  8. Also, I have a friend who always says "quarks" when she means "quirks." It bugs me, but we're no longer close enough for me to be able to correct her without offending her.

  9. No texting? Wow, you really are a weird-o. Or maybe it is those white eyebrows/lashes that make you weird :) This post made me laugh! Thanks for sharing.


Your turn...
