20 Random Facts

I was tagged by TrueLoveIsAMama for a random fact finding mission.

1.  I cannot tolerate olives or green bell peppers in any form.
2.  Before I had children, I was employed as a Contracts Administrator for the now defunct Cingular Wireless.
3.  I took ballet lessons until I was 15 years old.
4.  I have an irrational fear of beheading a construction worker working in a manhole with my car.
5.  My kids and I occasionally crank up the music and practice dance moves in the living room.
6.  I'm a convertible girl.  I previously owned two of them and I will own another one again one day.  Mark my words.
7.  I love sports.  Especially college football.
8.  I spent every New Years Eve with my paternal grandparents until I was 15 years old.
9.  I have one sibling, a younger brother, who inspires me to be a better person.
10. I had a severe case of cold feet on my wedding day and my maid-of-honor had to convince me to walk down the aisle.
11. The best decision I ever made was to walk down the aisle and marry my husband.
12. I had a "thing" for black and white cows.  I collected them.  I wore them.  

That's me in the front with the hand painted cow t-shirt and matching earrings.  And no, there is no explanation. (The Ear-Of-Corn costume requires a whole other explanation.)
13.  I'm a neat freak, or maybe I should say "recovering" neat freak.  Children tend to cure you of that particular propensity rather quickly.
14.  I worked at The Gap at the local mall during high school and on college break.  I fold a mean t-shirt.
15.  I have a crazy aunt who recently sent my children Christmas presents dated from the last three years.  Oddly enough, Clayton wasn't born in 2005, but she had a present addressed to him.  So I guess in addition to being psycho, my aunt is also psychic??
16.  I adore Chic-Fil-A Sandwiches.  When I was pregnant with Clayton and living in Copenhagen, I had my mother smuggle four sandwiches in her carry on luggage.  
17.  I do not mind doing laundry.
18.  My dream job would be a cast member on Saturday Night Live.
19.  I absolutely adore snow skiing.  Since becoming a mother, I haven't had the opportunity to go skiing very often.
20.  I will NOT drink Pepsi.  It disgusts me.  Is it because I'm from Atlanta? You decide.

So there you go.  A random collection of 20 facts about me.  Enjoy.

Don't you miss that 30% off Gap, I know I do. I'm with you on the olives, SNL and skiing but not on the Pepsi and the laundry :)

I'm cracking up at SNL!! That would be SO perfect for you. I'm totally with you on the Pepsi, but laundry? Really? When do you want to come over? =)
