Here it goes...

Carrie tagged me to list 100 things about myself, I am hoping I can come up with that many...

1) I love being a mother.
2) I have a serious lack of control when it comes to Ben and Jerry's.
3) I don't drink enough water and drink too much coffee, especially in the winter.
4) I graduated with only 8 people including myself.
5) I look really bad with short hair. Therefore my hair has been long since 8th grade.
6) I used to want to be in Wilson Phillips, which was also my first concert. Nelson was there too, how embarrassing.
7) The older I get the less I care about what people think of me.
8) I am passive and kind of a push over.
9) I wish I was more assertive and a bit more confident.
10) I hate high maintainance friendships.
11) I don't like being around people that you always have to say the "right things" to, know what I mean?
12) I have the greatest husband in the world.
13) I dislike cleaning bathrooms and doing laundry.
14) I really miss my chocolate lab Haley.
15) I have learned in my almost 29 years on earth to not take things for granted and never count your chickens before they hatch.
16)I am embarrassed by the fact that I have read hundreds of US Weekly's cover to cover, but never done the same with the Bible. How will I explain that one?
17) I love making jewelry.
18) I also just discovered I love to make and decorate cupcakes, oh yeah, eat them too.
19) I still have 8 pounds of baby weight to lose, but am having a hard time finding time to exercise. Is that an excuse?
20) I really believe you can count your true friends on one hand, maybe two hands.
21) I am bad about thinking the worst in some, not all situations, Michael says I can be a pessimist, but I think that I am a realist.
22) I used to be terrified by thunderstorms.
23) I don't miss teaching, that wasn't my calling...
24) I am scared of getting skin cancer, but can't stay out of the sun. I do wear sunscreen though.
25) I wish I didn't have freckles.
26) I think I am a good listener.
27) I have been told that I am a great gift giver.
28) My allergies have disappeared since I got pregnant. People who have known me a long time are shocked right now.
29) I don't like fake, flakey people.
30) I love decorating.
31) I love finding a deal and rarely buy things that aren't on sale.
32) I do however shell out for jeans.
33) The rise in gas prices infuriate me. I don't understand...
34) I tend to worry about things I can't control.
35) Canteloupe is my favorite fruit.
36) I work best under pressure. At least that is what most procrastinators tell themselves.
37) I like to know what lies ahead. Surprises stress me out.
38) I stay up too late.
39) I like to take old furniture and paint it, distress it, or whatever it needs. Makes for great conversation pieces. Like the buffet in my dining room my mom got it for $10 at a garage sale. I painted it black and distressed it and it gets the most comments of all my furniture.
40) I REALLY need to learn how to sew, but I am afraid I lack the patience.
41) I wish I could go without any makeup.
42) There are givers and there are takers, I think I am a giver.
43) I really hope that I am not put on bedrest when I have a second child.
44) I can't believe I am pushing 30...
45) I do not enjoy the company of loud, obnoxious people.
46) I am sad that we are moving in a few weeks.
47) I still wear my retainer at night.
48) I have no desire to ever scuba dive. Sharks and breathing through a tube scare me.
49) I love a good back scratch and rub.
50) I prefer baths to showers.
51) I have to sleep with a fan on at night.
52) I love to sing.
53) Getting my brows waxed make me feel like a new woman.
54) I don't have to have the last word. It annoys me when people do.
55) I am more compassionate now that I have a child.
56) I understand now how much my parents love me now that I have a child of my own.
57) Michael and I met at a wedding. Awww.
58) We dated long distance our entire relationship.
59) I am a little overprotective of Will. Michael always asks when his plastic bubble is coming in the mail. HaHa
60) If I had to live in another country, it would be Australia.
61) I think everyone looks better in black and white pictures.
62) I hate packing!!!
63) I wish I liked to cook more.
64) I wish healthy foods were more convenient.
65) My new favorite candy is Reese's Big Cup.
66) I get overwhelmed easily.
67) I love naps, but rarely get to take them.
68) After becoming a mom I rarely wear heels and I love heels.
69) I try to never say never.
70) I am a dog person, I don't trust cats.
71) I think I am a pretty strong person, mentally that is.
72) I haven't worked out in a year, I feel like a sloth.
73) I have to admit I watch my share of reality tv.
74) I don't always use my time wisely.
75) I would love to continue, but I have to go to bed...

That is hard to do. But, a great way to learn about yourself. Also, a great way for me to learn about you considering I haven't seen you in such a long time!

Courtney,
I just learned more about you in that one blog than I ever did in those years at LU and Pi Delta cram sessions! Loved it!

josh and darci said...

Loved it! How fun to learn new, quirky things about people. Hope that all is well in your world. Good luck with the packing and moving.

Court- I know there are lots of new things, but I still felt like I knew the majority! I love it!! I hope packing is going well!
What about singing?

Carrie, The Modern Housewife said...

The Robertson's said...

Oh you did mention singing, but I felt like it needed more discussion, Sheryl.

I think freckles are very cute which is fitting for your personality. You do have great long dark hair. If I were you I would keep it long also.
Canteloupe? Really?? I have to sleep with some kind of white noise. It drives Matthew crazy. Is that why you sleep with a fan, for noise? or to keep cool?
