If you really knew me...

After seeing Michelle, Steph, and Bethany do this, I've decided to jump off the bridge with them.

So, if you really knew me, you would know...

... that I can never stay awake during a movie. I sometimes don't even make it to the main menu on a DVD before snoozing. Because of this, I am hardly every allowed to pick the movie since Beau ends up watching it alone.

... that I changed what engagement ring I wanted three times before deciding I wanted a sapphire then put Beau through hell designing the prefect one.

... that I can be extremely shy at first but once I warm up, I'm a social butterfly.

... that I have been doing some dog sitting on the side and it makes me even more eager to open up my boarding/daycare/shelter facility in Virgina.

... that I only want one kid. Unluckily for me, twins run in both sides of the family and no one in my generation has had them yet. If it happens, I will probably die.

... that I have many reasons for only wanting one child but one of those reasons is that I don't want to share the love I have for my furbabies with drooling, human babies (but I'll need one kid to keep my gene pool alive).

... that I wear contacts and I do not change them nearly as much as I should.

... that I do not permit having a television in the bedroom. It's one of my biggest 'living together' rules.

... that I fear fire and dying before my parents. At the same time though, I fear having to lay my parents into the ground. I don't know what I would do without them both in my life.

... that when I was a kid, my dream job was to pump gas. I am now able to live that dream every time I go to Virginia (or if I drive 10 minutes to Pennsylvania but then I pay more for the gas).

... that I normally blog on my 17" HP laptop from 2007 - out of convenience - but occasionally use the 27" iMac that we have upstairs.

... that I prefer Dunkin Donuts over Starbucks.

... that I sleep with mace and a baseball bat next to the bed.

I fear dying before my mom, and I fear her dying before me. It's a lose lose.

Do you really sleep with a baseball bat and mace?! haha

Bethany Scruggs said...

LOLLLLL. YOU? shy?? nahhh. :)

I want twins - so I will trade with you. I sleep with a .45 cal pistol next to the bed. You know I adoreeee animals.

But - I 100% agree with the tv thing. how un-romantic! But, I finally caved about 2 years into our marriage and I am glad now. He wants to watch golf? nascar? I'll go upstairs!

I'm totally copying this idea :D

I don't believe in having a TV in the bedroom either. I learned in Psych classes that it's not good because then you associate the bed w/ TV and it needs to be w/ sex. My professor even said he doesn't even think you should read in bed! But I do. When Matt's not home.

I think I am going to do this this week, and I am with you we are going to be in the one and done club!

Jenny Strickland said...

Twins run in our families also! Makes me so nervous!

And I am with you on the no tv in the bedroom! I had one growing up but when Adam and I starting living together I told him no!

Meagan said...

We have a baseball bat under our bed too! I am also guilty of the contacts and not changing them. Can't wait for you to get pregnant and see if you have twins! I bet once you have a baby you may change the one and done thing. It changes you SO much!

Jessica said...

Aww I am the opposite! I wanted twins but they DON'T run in my fam!Hahaha
