Today is my birthday... So, in honor of Me, here is a list of 100 things about me. It was from my other blog, but I decided to move it here. A friend had challenged me to come up with the list.
1. I love being a Mommy
2. I really wanted a little girl, but God blessed me with a son. I have fallen so in love with him, that I actually kind of hope that our next baby is another boy.
3. I would go barefoot all the time if that was possible
4. I would much rather be cold than hot. When you're cold, you can always add layers, but when you're hot, it's not like you can run around naked.
5. Winter is my favorite season. I love to look at the snow, it is so beautiful... but it is best enjoyed from the comfort of the house or car - with the heater on.
6. I have never drank so much that I threw up or passed out.
7. I am adopted
8. I take pride in being a "know-it-all." I am almost always right and sometimes, you can even win money from your brother-in-law when you are indeed correct.
9. When winning said money from said brother-in-law, I used to think... hmmm what will I buy myself. Now I think, hmmm... what will I buy for Dillon.
10. I love all things Disney. Disneyland, DisneyWorld, Disney Movies...My head is so full with Disney Trivia. My brain absorbs it like a sponge.
11. My dream kitchen would have 3 ovens and 2 dishwashers. The kitchen I am actually getting is going to have 2 ovens and 1 dishwasher. I have room for 3 ovens and 2 dishwashers, but I'm being realistic... I really don't need 3 ovens and 2 dishwashers.
12. One of my favorite hobbies is planning parties (for myself and helping others.) I love putting together all the details - the menu, entertainment, the decorations... My favorite party so far was Jason's 30th birthday party, followed by my GameNight New Year's Party.
13. I really enjoy cooking. I even have a few "signature" dishes that get lots of requests at family get togethers.
14. I like eating spicy foods. I didn't used to. Kung Pao Chicken & Buffalo Chicken Strips are my favorite spicy foods.
15. I have no sisters... but I have a brother and 3 step-brothers. I always wished I had a sister.
16. I like swimming, but I HATE getting my hair wet while swimming.
17. I finally like my hair. Shorter, darker and straight. Jason likes it the "natural" way - Longer, blonder and curly.
18. I would much rather load the dishwasher than unload it and put the dishes away.
19. My favorite restaurant is Ruth's Chris. Too bad it's so expensive.
20. Even though I love cooking, I would eat out every day if I could. And by eating out, I don't mean take-out.
21. I like chocolate. My favorite is dark chocolate.
22. I don't really like pizza, but I craved it while I was pregnant.
23. I have been in love three times. Two of those I still am in love with - Jason & Dillon.
24. I love riding roller coasters. I wish I could find one that was actually scary.
25. I can't wait to go back to Hawaii. I loved it there so much.
26. I hate that like 99% of frozen foods have those stupid red peppers in them. It ruins the food.

28. I rode Mission: Space at Epcot.
29. I am not a morning person. I like staying up late.
30. My favorite thing to drink is Iced Tea. It must have lots of ice in it. I hate Iced Tea without ice.

32. I have more than one "baby Einstein" cd on my iPod.
33. I once had yearly passes to Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm at the same time
34. Cutting Dillon's nails is one of the scariest things I have to do on a reoccurring basis.

63. My favorite movie soundtrack is from Edward Scissorhands. I walked down the aisle to the song "Ice Dance"
64. I miss performing on stage. Acting and Singing - I miss both.
65. I loved singing in the Fullerton College Concert Choir. The audition for that was really nerve racking.
