25 Random Things about M-E!

This is all the craze on Facebook right now so I thought I would post my list here since (1) I have not posted in a while and (2) it does not require pictures (see #1). If you read this and want to play along, leave a comment with the link to your own blog so I can read all about you.

1. I have flat feet.

2. I married my high school sweetheart.

3. I am adopted.

4. I was born in Houston, Texas.

5. I love coffee. I drink 2-3 cups a day. I started drinking coffee when I got married so I would not waste the pot of coffee we had to make for my hubby each day.

6. I love all things Disney. My husband and I have been to Disneyworld every year since 2001.

7. I love to plan and organize things ... events, meals, closets, etc. I would like to become better at executing all of those well laid plans.

8. I was very overweight in high school. I'm not going to give you a number, but I lost 40 pounds between my sophomore and junior years. I lost an additional 15-20 the year after I graduated from college.

9. My middle name is Claire, which is also my daughter's name.

10. My undergraduate degree is in psychology. I wanted to continue and get my Ph.D. and teach college students, but decided law school was more practical. I wish I had gone to nursing school instead. Can you say "job security."

11. I have never gone to a movie alone, but I think it would be nice.

12. I am afraid that my children will have weight problems like me, but I don't want to be one of "those" moms.

13. I played softball in high school. My position was catcher.

14. The song "You are Worthy (Prince of Peace)" makes me happy ... and a little winded after singing the chorus.

15. I love to write with sharpie markers, especially when I am marking things off a list.

16. When I was little, I wanted to be a doctor and a mountain climber.

17. I would love to make a quilt one day soon with my big basket of fabric scraps in my sewing room.

18. My children are my proudest accomplishments and the joy of my life.

19. We are huge Alabama football fans. My husband and I are both alumni.

20. I wish I had not had a serious boyfriend in college. But, I also know that I might not be where I am in life today had I not gone down that road, and for that, I am thankful.

21. We have the best next door neighbors in the world. We love hanging out with them on their back porch after work (when it is warmer of course).

22. I wish I had the girlfriends that I had now when I was in college. I have great friends!

23. In law school, I observed Lent every year even though I am not Catholic. One year I gave up pizza (you eat a lot of pizza in law school) and one year I gave up caffeine. (Obviously, that was long before children.)

24. I would like to run a 5K this year. That is a big goal since I have not run more than one mile since I got pregnant with my daughter in 2005.

25. I lived in Auburn for one year after I graduated from college.

We do have a lot in common---like #1, 14, 15, and 18. I can't see you playing catcher, but I'm impressed! Wow---I'm calling you whenever we plan a trip to Disney! Love them all!
