28 Things About Me to Celebrate my 28th Birthday

Although this is now several days late, I’m just glad that I finished it since the babe was sick all of my birthday weekend. We are still having some issues returning to our regularly scheduled programming, so it is definitely an off week. A slight bummer after TWO awesome weeks, but hey, there will always be ups and downs in life.

1. I love all things sweet. For my birthday celebration, I ordered 2 dozen mini cupcakes from Sweet! By Good Golly Miss Holly.
2. I love the outdoors.
3. I hate to sweat, which is why I don’t spend all that much time outdoors.
4. I love video games. I’m no expert, but I love them anyway. Especially World of Warcraft and all the active Wii games.
5. I love to read. Anything. Fiction, non-fiction, fantasy, it doesn’t matter as long as it’s well-written.
6. I’ve fallen in love with the Disney Channel and, embarrassingly enough, Hannah Montana.
7. I’d love to scrapbook, but I’m one of those people who needs uninterrupted time, a large blank work space and ALL of the items to make a page or book before I sit down to do it. This has resulted in a ton of supplies and not many scrapbooks. I’m only sad that Aly’s isn’t farther along than it is.
8. This is my first birthday where the day hasn’t felt special. Apparently I’m reaching the “old” stage of life.
9. I don’t know what I’d do without my Blackberry and Blackberry Messenger. My phone bill would be HUGE if all of those were text messages! I also would have missed out on the support and sympathy from cousin Robyn while we were both pregnant with our firstborns.
10. I hate to run. Unless I’m feeling a crushing amount of stress, to the point where I’m going to curl up in a corner and just bawl, you will never see me run for fun. Now, if you throw a Frisbee, I will catch it and run to do so if need be. But no running around the block for this gal.
11. I love food. Cooking and eating are two of my favorite things to do, and I’m not too limited in what I eat.
12. I can’t wait until my daughter is old enough to color with me. It’s one of my favorite pastimes, and Crayola has come out with so many new, cool things since I was the coloring age!
13. I prefer important places like the living room and my computer space to be uncluttered. This never happens because Aly’s play room is the living room, and my computer space is currently at the bar that collects all the stuff no one feels like climbing over the baby gate into the kitchen to put away. I’d still prefer them to be uncluttered.
14. I love candles and pretty candle accessories. I should not be allowed anywhere near Yankee Candle or Bed Bath and Beyond.
15. I actually like light and medium bodied coffee and often wish I could drink them black. Unfortunately, my GERD won’t allow me to do that.
16. It’s pretty difficult for me to create this list. 28 is a pretty high number, but still, you’d think after 28 years I’d have less of an issue creating it.
17. I love theme parks, so I love living in the Orlando area, even if it does get hot as a kiln here in the late spring, summer, and early fall.
18. I prefer to travel by car rather than airplane. There are so many more things to see and do that way, although if you really need to be somewhere quick, you can’t beat taking a plane.
19. I’m a nervous flyer who spends most of the flight concentrating on my breathing or reading a book. I dread the first time I have to take my daughter on a plane and try to explain everything calmly to her.
20. Laundry is my least favorite chore. There are so many steps and it’s so time consuming, I really dread doing it. My new chore plan has made it tolerable, but still my least favorite chore.
21. I want a boat.
22. I want to learn to operate my boat so we can cruise up and down the St. Johns and part of the Eastern seaboard. It’s so relaxing being on the water.
23. One of my must eat high calorie foods is Panera’s Cinnamon Crunch bagel, preferable with hazelnut cream cheese. Ohsotasty and irresistible.
24. Bacon is the only meat I’ll eat without thinking twice about it.
25. I like large, mismatched coffee cups. Who needs a matched set of coffee mugs when you can use souvenir mugs or mugs in cool colors/designs in various shapes and sizes? I’ll leave the matched sets to the serious tea drinkers of the world. 😉
26. I like tea, but only with a ton of sugar. I blame that on living in the South. It’s just not tea without a ton of sugar.
27. I found my girly side when my daughter was born and now have a huge fascination with purses and bags. I’m afraid my Macy’s gift card my mom gave me for my birthday won’t be used for new clothes, but will instead help pay for a new bag. 😛
28. Last thing… What should it be??? I’m terribly indecisive and second guess myself on everything. I need to give this list just a quick glance then publish it before I talk myself out of replacing some of them…

  1. […] need to write down where this stuff comes from so I can link back!) and since I just celebrated my 28th, I want to work on my list for when I get to 30. It’s been a great daydreaming adventure, but […]
