29 Random things about me on My Birthday

Today is my 29th Birthday and I am going to write 29 Random facts about myself to celebrate the day! I got this idea from Laura at The Bignell Family, she did this for her Birthday last Friday.

1. I am the biggest Mamma's girl you will ever meet!

2. My dream is to adopt a little girl one day. I have been bugging my husband about this a lot lately. I made the mistake of getting my tubes tied when I had Kobe (I pretty much had to for medical reasons but I am still upset about it).

3. Before meeting my husband I had been a single mother of my two oldest sons for 5 years. During those 5 years I bought my own house and brand new car (two things I am very proud of).

4. I love to read...I am the biggest book worm you will ever meet. Books are my friends :o)

5. I have a thing for clean bathrooms. I hate dirty bathrooms and I am always cleaning my bathrooms.

6. I moved to the states in 1991 and my first year of American school I won the spelling bee for my grade.

7. I love Baskets...especially Longaberger Baskets.

8. My favorite colors are Pink and Olive Green.

9. I love having clean sheets on my bed, I think it is nasty when people sit on my bed in their dirty clothing that they have been wearing all day. To be honest, I don't like for anyone to be on my bed.

10. I love Bath and Body Works Sweet Pea Hand Soap. It is one of my indulgence, I always have it in my bathrooms.

11. I am a very bubbly person, even if I am hurting or feeling sad I will always smile and act as if there is nothing wrong.

12. I always dreamt of writing a book.

13. I buy things that I know are not my style and give them to someone else (most of the time it is something that I know my Mamma or my sister will like).

14. My favorite perfume is Escada Magnetism.

15. I used to want to be a lawyer when I was younger, now I want to be a nurse.

16. I was homeschooled for 3 years when I was a teenager.

17. I am scared of getting electrocuted and hate plugging things in.

18. My first job besides baby sitting was working at Burger King.

19. I am a very emotional person, meaning I cry A LOT!!!! Commercials, movies, books, my children and husband...they all make me cry.

20. I loathe grocery shopping and try to do is as seldom as possible.

21. I am the oldest of 4 sisters (no brothers).

22. I was a military brat.

23. I spent 2 months in Bahrain in 2005.

24. I am extremely claustrophobic and I am scared of heights (I wasn't as a child but I seem to be getting worse with age).

25. Even though I am claustrophobic, I love to fly. I just have to be able to see outside and I can not think about the fact that I can't get off the plane if I need to.

26. I have lived in 3 different countries.

27. I have lived in 3 different states and am moving to my 4th state.

28. I have a really bad temper. If you do something to hurt my family or friends....watch out!!!

29. I'm scared to death of bugs (I can't sleep if I start to think there may be a bug somewhere in the room) but I am not scared of mice.

Happy Birthday!!!!! What a fun post!

Funny - we're the same age! I've been 29 for years now! So, get used to this age...it's THE PERFECT AGE. Camp out, make yourself at home...it's a yummy age!

So, the thing I'm most surprised at about your list? Hmmm. Well - I knew you were smart - but to be in the States for a YEAR and win the spelling bee? Now THAT'S impressive! You are one determined woman! I get that. Your whole list is about that. :) Pretty amazing, Helga. I imagine you are impossible not to like.

Have a great birthday. What special thing are you doing to celebrate? Cake? Ice cream? Dinner?

Happy Birthday! I hope it's great! I love the random things idea. I might have to steal it. Course I"ll have to add on a couple more or maybe I'll stick with the 29 theme. I like that!
