100 things you might not know about me.

1. I don't have any tattoos and never plan on getting any. I've never liked them on the opposite sex either. Although Joe talks about getting dolphins(sub world)or his wife and daughters names- And either would be OK with me.
2. I really love been married. I love signing my new last name. When my new SS card came in this week... I had a big grin on my face. I'm not so fond of my new initials SLL-but...hey, can't win them all!
3. I love a good bargain. It's hard for me to buy something that isn't on sale/that I don't have a coupon for.
4. I am a hopeless romantic.
5. I really know nothing about makeup...even though I grew up in the beauty industry. I can barely put on blush correctly. My husband thinks this is great.
6. I love laffy taffy. And truffles. I don't buy either.
7. I wish I lived more green. But I don't know a lot about it.
8. I LOVE getting dressed up and going out to nice places. I would rather do that once a month then go to Applebees/TGI Fridays every week.
9. My ALL TIME favorite movie is Man on Fire. I still cry and I've seen it over 10 times.
10. I am consistently re-evaluating my life - financially and emotionally.
11. When I was younger...I wanted to be a teacher. That's what I went to college for. Lucky for me they have you in the classroom 2nd year. Phew! I knew after my first day this wasn't the gig for me. Funny, I ended up in a classroom anyway.
12. I don't LOVE shopping like most women. I love a good walk with my husband. A good chat. A good book. Not a good stroll in the mall.
13. Purple is my FAVORITE color. I hate PINK. My baby shower invites will say. Purple only- if I am giving birth to a girl.
14. I always wanted to have three kids. Joe wants 1. We are compromising at 2. I'm hoping the second round is twins- so I get my way. :) We'll see what life has in store for us!
15. I am horrible at math. Failed Alger bra in HS. And then Geometry.
16. I am passionate to a fault.

18. I don't have any trust issues. It's nice.
19. I REALLY wish I could relax a little more. I worry about everything. Mostly things way in the future. I've recently started getting nose bleeds from this instead of just insomnia. *sigh*

21. I feel like if you can't pay for it with a check- you shouldn't buy it. I hate debt. Even car debt. I have it figured out to the penny what we pay on Joe's truck in interest every day ( 1.82 ) THAT bugs me.
22. I think I will love being pregnant. I think Joe may not love me being pregnant. And I know myself enough to admit that.
23. I don't really like the dark. I get scared. This is why we have a gun. So if there are any prospective robbers/rapists reading this. I will blow your head off.

26. I feel like there is never enough time.
27. I want to go to Disney with Joe before we have kids. And then I want to go when the kids are extra young. I know this is silly-they won't remember it...but a wise person once told me(When I said, what a waste!) I didn't go for them. I went so that my husband and I could see and capture the looks on their faces.
28. One of my favorite things in the world is to curl up next to Joe and read. While he is reading.

Love the list! I might have to do one of these.

I laughed about what you said in another entry about reading Joe's emails over and over. I do that too! It's ridiculous! I can stretch a three-liner into two days of feel-good. And when he sends me an especially gooey one, god, I practically memorize the damn thing, and I still feel googly every time I read it. I guess that's what you do with every crumb you're tossed when you're starving...
