I don’t know if there are 15 interesting things about me, but I’ll try.
I won the BLUEST eyes baby contest for the South Ogden Baby Beauties pageant when I was 2ish years old.
|My eyes were really blue when I was little but they’ve faded since|
I can do all 5 ballet foot positions only with my feet turned inward instead of outward.
I have a super long tongue. So long my mom used to call me, “Gene Simmons”
I pierced my navel when I was 19 years old. The guy pierced it wrong and it always veered off to the right. It got infected, I took it out after 6 months, but the scar remains, both on the inside and outside of my belly button. What a waste of $50.
I was in Times Square the day the U.S. dropped bombs in Iraq. My NYCbestie and I had just come out of a Broadway show and we were caught in the middle of this huge war protest. I’ve never been in the middle of so many human beings in my life. A historical day to remember for sure.
The hubs and I actually “met” several times before we officially “met met” and started dating. One of those times he offered me ice on a particularly hot day and I asked him he had sucked on it first. He said no, but he could if I really wanted him to.
At one point in my life I was pretty obsessed with the Oscar-wining actress and late Princess of Monaco, Grace Kelly.
|Mostly because I just wanted to look like her….|
I have very good auditory memory and one of my favorite pastimes is quoting movies. My brother and I mostly relate and communicate with each other through movie quotes. Which leads me to….
I can quote the movie “The Princess Bride” verbatim at the right tempo and pace. Although I still think the book is better than the movie.

Every summer I won the Governor’s Reading Award in Elementary school by reading on average 200 books instead of the required 20. I just love books, okay?
I own a pair of shoes in every color and I organize them in my closet on the shoe rack according to color.

Perfect for number 12, I lost 12 pounds the first trimester of my first pregnancy because my “morning” sickness was that bad (they should really call it all day sickness). I was even so dehydrated at one point that I had to go to the clinic and be put on an IV for 2 hours. It wasn’t until my 3rd pregnancy that my doctor told me I could take half a Unisom and a B6 vitamin at night to help quell my morning sickness. A little too late there, doc.
My favorite, or “lucky,” number is 7 because I was born in the 7th month, and I just really like that number. The hubs’s favorite, or “lucky” number is 13. My parents were married on a Friday the 13th, so that’s a lucky number and day in our family.
I was hospitalized for pneumonia in 3rd grade after a kindergartner pulled the fire alarm and they made us stand outside in the rain for several hours. I have limp asthma-stricken lungs and they just couldn’t take it.
My second child was born 16 1/2 HOURS after my sister’s second child, even though our due dates were exactly 5 weeks apart. C was born 1 minute after midnight or else he and E would have the exact same birthday. That was a big weekend for our parents.
