Quirky Monday: The One With Things You Should Know About Me If We're Gonna Be BFF

One of the blogs I follow has done a couple of posts called Things You Should Know About Me If We're Gonna Be BFF.  I liked it both times, so I decided to do my own.  Especially since I post so much about my girls, I think it's time I took the stage ;)

When I am single, I can be wild & fun (& rather careless with spending my money)... when I am in a relationship, I am a homebody.

I tend to be lazy, but I recognize that & try to be more active because of it.

I have a love/hate relationship with bangs (on me).

I have addictions to Target, sugar, my cell phone & my pinterest app.  No joke.  Addicted.  I need rehab.  Well, I would if I had to stop them.

I really would love long hair, but my hair is so thin, it just doesn't look good.

I have the shortest toes you ever did see... and they look like they all got chopped off because they are all so close in length.

I hardly read books.  It's a super rare occasion when I pick up a book.  Did I mention my husband is writing a book?  His is one of the few I have read in the past 10 years.  In fact, besides reading the scriptures, in the past 10 years, I can count on 1 hand how many books I have read.  Maybe 2 hands, but it's pretty close to one hand.

I really like to spend money.  Especially when it's a good deal.  Like so much that it's possible it should be combined with my addictions above. 

I love Target commercials.  (hahahahahaha, inside family joke, but it's still true!)

I have only have broken one bone... but I broke it 2 separate times.

Because of the house we are currently living in, I will forever be a gardening nerd.  (it has a huge garden with soil made of gold or something)

I think I am pretty darn funny sometimes, even though I know I think I am funnier than I really am.  I really don't care that other people don't think I am as funny as I am.  I just enjoy making myself laugh.  :)  Did that even make sense?

I like to be in the spotlight (not on a stage, just in smaller groups), Rick used to joke that I wanted kids so the attention could be on me.

The older I get, the more I realize I can be pretty OCD.

The thought didn't ever occur to me that I didn't have to match my socks when I put them away until I married Rick.

I'm terrified of heights.  I don't even like being on a bridge big enough for cars to drive on.  Although, I do pretty good on air planes... weird? Yeah.  Oh yeah, and I'm a big, big wuss when it comes to rides.  Like amusement park rides.  Except for Disneyland rides.  :)

I blog for journaling's sake, but I'm not complaining that some of my posts have been repinned a total of 600 times & counting... but who's keeping track of that?  ;)

I have dreams like once every 2 months that I have a loose tooth.

When I was younger I used to collect toy pigs (stuffed, banks, etc.) and umm.... panties.  Yeah, as much as I would like to brag, I'm not going to expound on that one on the internet...

I grew up as the baby of 6 kids, but the 5th child is 5 1/2 years older than I am, so I kind of got the best of both worlds - kind of only child & big family all at once.

I'm 5'7.5 inches... but it's just easier to say I'm 5'8" :)

I would be so scared (and I know I am crazy), but I would LOVE twins.

I often say things that sound a lot worse than I mean them.  Then I obsess in my head for a week or two being embarrassed that it sounded so bad.

I'm super indecisive.  I'm getting better, but I still would prefer that all of my decisions were made for me.

I thought of a lot more than I thought I would!  Next week I'll post Things You Should Know If You Are Gonna Be Paige's BFF.  :)

Oh I can't wait to read about being Paige's BFF. I'm on a not so secret mission to be her favorite of all time. Brittany is my biggest competition but since she doesn't read blogs I will have an advantage! Muahahahaha.
