Probably more than you want or need to know...

I saw this on my cousin, Steph's blog. I know it's useless and silly, but it's been a while since I did one of these, and oh why not! :)

65 facts about ME:

1. First thing you wash in the shower?
My hair

2. What color is your favorite hoodie?
I think the only 2 hoodies I have are both grey. I wouldn't consider either favorites.

3. Would you kiss the last person you kissed again?
Absolutely! Snotty face and all!

4. Do you plan outfits?
Not usually. I am an extremely conservative dresser. Neil’s grandma, who is about the hippest 81 year old I know, recently complimented a skirt I was wearing that was probably the loudest piece of clothing I own. After telling me how much she liked it, she said, “And you don’t normally wear color!” I laughed, because she’s absolutely right! I am a plain jane when it comes to clothing! It isn’t that I don’t like color and flowery patterns because I really do! I just hate shopping, and can never seem to find what I want when I make the effort! Plus, what's the point when most of the things I wear just get snot (and other bodily fluids) on them anyway!

5. How are you feeling RIGHT now?
As though I’ve been hit by a truck! I started Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred this morning, and have just been reminded of how incredibly out of shape I am! It’s a good feeling though, ultimately. Maybe in 30 days my butt will look as good as it did the day I got married!

6. What’s the closest thing to you that's red?
My dumbbells.

7. Tell me about the last dream you remember having.
Last night I had a dream about Neil’s uncle Curt, aunt Malinka, and his 2 cousins, Blake and Jenna. We were visiting them in Salt Lake, and Malinka was re-doing the house. Random…

8. Did you meet anybody new today?
No, but it’s still morning.

9. What are you craving right now?
Water, which I’m drinking…

10. Do you floss daily?
Not even close! I’m the patient who flosses religiously the week leading up to my 6 month cleaning, and then usually the week following. Shh, Stelene. Don't tell your husband.

11. What comes to mind when I say cabbage?
Hmmm… a couple recipes that I’m eager to try out. And one I made just yesterday with ramen noodles and chicken. Yum!

12. Are you emotional?
Not as emotional as I used to be. I can be a dwelling worry wort though, which might be worse!

13. Have you ever counted to 1,000?
Nope, and don’t plan to.

14. Do you bite into your ice cream or just lick it?
I don’t eat much ice cream, but when I do, I lick it. My teeth are extremely sensitive!

15. Do you like your hair?
I’ll like it more when it isn’t all falling out! I finally stopped nursing this week, so I’m hoping to see some improvement soon.

16. Do you like yourself?

17. Would you go out to eat with George W. Bush?
If he's paying!

What are you listening to right now?
Chloe telling me to look at her thumb, and Ryan whining (he’s sick, poor guy).

19. Are your parents strict?
Well, we haven’t lived under the same roof for nearly a decade, so it’s hard to stay. Growing up though, they were very laid back.

20. Would you go sky diving?

21. Do you like cottage cheese?
I can’t eat it right out of the container like Neil can, but I don’t mind it in certain things.

22. Have you ever met a celebrity?
Yes! I met Lou Bega (Mambo #5, anyone?) outside the bathroom at the Olive Garden in Salt Lake back in 2000. I was with my brother, and he introduced himself, and then me. Last summer I saw Diana Krall in concert, and while I didn’t actually meet her, she acknowledged me and Ryan in the audience. Read about it here.

23. Do you rent movies often?
Yes! We love Redbox!

24. Is there anything sparkly in the room you're in?
Given the fact that my daughter is 4, I’d be willing to bet that there is something sparkly in this room. Even if I can’t see anything from where I’m sitting, I'm stickin' to my answer!

25. How many countries have you visited?
Only one. Neil and I went to the Grand Caymans in 2007. Wish we could go back.

26. Have you made a prank phone call?
When I was younger, yes.

27. Ever been on a train?
Not in years, but yes.

28. Brown or white eggs?
I don’t really know the difference. Whatever’s less expensive as far as I’m concerned!

29. Do you have a cell phone?
Unfortunately, yes.

30. Do you use chap stick?
Frequently, throughout the day.

31. Do you own a gun?
Neil does, I think.

32. Can you use chop sticks?
Now do you really need to ask this question? I am the sushi queen! I could teach lessons on proper chop stick etiquette!

33. Who are you going to be with tonight?
My 3 favorite people, whose names start with N, C and R!

34. Are you too forgiving?
Sometimes, but the worst part about it is while things appear to be okay on the outside, I still sometimes hold grudges. I’m trying really hard to overcome this unhealthy habit!

35. Ever been in love?
Yep! And I love how the older I get and the longer I’ve been in love, the more in love I grow…

36. What is your best friend(s) doing tomorrow?
Hmmm, well I know what my husband is doing. As for my other best friend, why don’t you ask her yourself?

37. Ever have cream puffs?
Love them!

38. Last time you cried?
It’s been a while since I had a good cry, but I get teary-eyed daily over little things. I’m a tender person, what can I say?

39. What was the last question you asked?
I asked Ryan if he was ready for a nap. He immediately walked in the opposite direction, so I’m taking that as a “No.” Or maybe he’s just in denial.

40. Favorite time of year?
From the first day of college football season to Christmas.

41. Do you have any tattoos?

42. Are you sarcastic?
Yes, especially with Neil. Sometimes it’s how we express our affections for one another.

43. Have you ever seen The Butterfly Effect?
I don’t think I have.

44. Ever walked into a wall?
I wouldn’t doubt it.

45. Favorite color?

46. Have you ever slapped someone?
Sure have! In kindergarten, I slapped a girl across the face because she stole my friend’s ring. I was suspended for the rest of the day, and my mom, who taught at the same school I attended, was pretty embarrassed. I really don’t know what came over me, because I was a pretty timid 5 year old!

47. Is your hair curly?
Nope. Straight, straight, straight!

48. What was the last CD you bought?
Don’t recall, but the next CD I plan to buy is William Joseph’s latest album.

49. Do looks matter?
Depends on what we’re talking about.

50. Could you ever forgive a cheater?
That’s a tough call because I’ve never had to. I don’t think anyone can honestly answer that question until they’ve endured it.

51. Is your phone bill sky high?

52. Do you like your life right now?
Love it.

53. Do you sleep with the TV on?
I don’t make a habit of it, but sure, I’ve fallen asleep in front of the TV before.

54. Can you handle the truth?
Absolutely! I’d always rather have the truth, no matter how difficult it may be swallow.

55. Do you have good vision?
Nearly perfect. I am very fortunate.

56. Do you hate or dislike more than 3 people?
Hating takes too much effort!

57. How often do you talk on the phone?
I hate talking on the phone, but I do a fair bit of it.

58. The last person you held hands with?
Can’t remember for sure, but I could narrow it down to 3 people. :)

59. What are you wearing?
Workout clothes. It’s okay to be jealous. I’d want to see me too if I were you!

60. What is your favorite animal?
Hmm, probably a dog. I love rottweilers and bulldogs.

61. Where was your profile picture taken?
Flaming Gorge, summer of 2007, when we were camping with Neil’s family.

62. Can you hula hoop?
The last time I tried was at an Achievement Days activity when I was about 6 months pregnant with Ryan. Yeah, didn’t go so well.

63. Do you have a job?
I sure do! And it’s the best job in the world!

64. What was the most recent thing you bought?
A soft shell jacket at REI for Neil’s birthday (with the help of Dad and Mom Halliday’s gift card).

65. Have you ever crawled through a window?
I have! In fact, I have crawled through a dog door!

Now it's your turn! If you're reading this and have a blog, consider yourself tagged!

I know I'll forget some things, but I loved this! How fun to read all about you - what I didn't know, what I did. So glad you took time to do it! Inventive: crawled through a dog door?! Adaptable: you (and Ryan - he probably enjoyed it!) with the hula hoop! Quick!: loved "sparkly...." (that's our girl!) and Ryan in denial (can see him too - dear little thing...). Wise - "hating takes too much energy"; Funny - "I'd want to see me too!" Ah - what a nice break in my day. You're the best!
Love you soooo.....
