40 Things

40 Things

Inspired by Janine’s list at Destinations and in honor of my 4oth Birthday I have decided to attempt the 100 Things list. Remember that one?

I’m starting off with 40 (of course) and I’ll eventually build on that.

Here goes-

I drink milk with dinner.

I read Oprah Magazine cover to cover.

I like doing crafts.

I have never lived anywhere outside of So Cal.

I’ve watched baby sea turtles hatch and make their way to the ocean.

I will always love the Grateful Dead.

I’ve broken 3 bones.

I was a cheerleader in High School.

I wish I could play the piano.

I don’t like lattes.

I still miss Sex and the City.

My first concert was to see Journey.

I put notes in my daughter’s lunch everyday.

I believe in magic.

I live for my 50mm compact micro lens.

I gave birth twice without an epidural.

I’ve been to Key West.

I actually like Chuck E. Cheeses.

I’ve shot too many weddings to count.

I’m a published author.

I don’t brush my hair.

I’ve been called a beer snob.

I’m a Nintendo Ambassador but I’m not a gamer.

I cry every time I read On The Day You Were Born to my kids.

I keep a stash of MnMs in my office closet.

I love my minivan.

I hate to mop.

I order oatmeal at restaurants.

Nature is my sanctuary.

My first car was a VW Bug.

I touched Justin Timberlake.*

I couldn’t live without my girlfriends.

I lost the diamond from my wedding ring and then found it.

I had a blood clot after the birth of my second child that went undetected for a week.

I wear slippers but not a robe.

I used to sing at open mic nights with a friend.

I like to watch golf on tv.

I traveled across country in a VW once when I was 5 and again when I was 25.

I eat ice cream almost every night.

I am 40.

*Just on his shoulder as I was trying to get by. And no, he didn’t touch me back.

    Happy Birthday! I loved your list…to the Grateful Dead, I say oh yeah! I also shared your belief in magic and your epidural free birth–hmm, wondering now if these two go together! 😉

    I love reading these things! Great list. It’s so interesting to find out some of the little things that makes up a person (that you’ve never met).

    Happy Birthday! Loved your list and I could include 12 of your “things” on a list of my own. 🙂

    I missed TT today at Picture This. It’s not been a pretty week.
