25 Things You Don't Know About Me

August 30, 2011

I've been so bad at blogging!  I have a million things I want to blog about, but never make the time to do it.  From this point on, I promise to be better {hence the two posts in two days.}  

Our AT&T team at work has lots of new members, so in order to get to know each other, we have added a new feature to our Monday meetings called "25 Things You Don't Know About Me."  So yes, we might have stolen it from US Magazine, but it it's a great idea and has been very interesting so far.  Without further ado...25 things you don't know about me:

1.  The only cartoon I've ever seen is "Cinderella.
2.  I have never seen "Gone with the Wind," "The Sound of Music," or "Alice in Wonderland." 
3.  Like Bell Biv Devoe, I too believe that you can never trust a big butt and a smile.
4.  I spent the majority of my Freshman year listening to Country music {SPJST Lodge, anyone?} and taking fashion tips from people like Garth Brooks and Reba.
5.  I took ballet, tap and jazz for seven years.
6.  I didn't talk to anyone but my mother until Kindergarden.
7.  The first concert I ever attended was The New Kids On The Block.  #Duh
8.  I had a gall stone attack on a Sunday night while watching "Keeping Up with the Kardashians."  I had to have it removed, and still have some of the stones that I made the doctor give me to look at!
9.  I love cutting, styling and coloring hair...my dream job in high school was to become a hair dresser.
10. My first job was as the hostess with the mostess at the Black Eyed Pea on 290.
11.  I can not play any musical instruments and obviously can't sing.
12.  My first car was a Ford Probe, and it was the best car EVER.
13.  I have been in commercials on the radio.
14.  I am 100% Italian with family from Italy an Sicily.
15.  I have a side business making accessories for women and children- www.swishproductions.etsy.com.
16.  I have made tutus for children in Paris and Africa.
17.  I am extremely OCD with calendars and papers...I HATE scratch outs!
18.  Snuffaluffagus is my eyelash idol.
19.  I read magazines from back to front.
20.  I bought a home when I was 24.
21.  One of my first posters was Doogie Houser holding a clip board and posing while "making his rounds."
22.  My favorite 80's video is "Cradle of Love" by Billy Idol.
23.  I shopped side by side with Paris Hilton once at Patricia Field in New York...she might not have known that I was there, but it happened!
24.  I have two dogs- Guido & Stella.
25.  Growing up, I had two chickens named Lane and Reno.

I can't believe summer is almost over!  I love summer for a few reasons {one of them being my birthday} but I could live without the summer heat!  A couple of weekends ago, the JL tearoom girls and I took a mini vaca to Fredericksburg to try and beat the heat.  Although it was pretty warm, we still had a great time.  The house was great and we had so much fun!  If you are ever planning a vacation to Fredericksburg, stay at the Red Stairs house.  It was so cute and everything about it screamed Fredericksburg.

The girls 
The land of the peaches...
We heart you Gwen Stefani
Thanks girls for all the help planning and all the memories!  I couldn't think of another group of girls that I would have wanted to take the trip with!
