Semi Interesting ~

I received an award the other day from Ginger at The Neff Family! She is one of my new favorite bloggers :) She is seriously just so sweet and has the cutest family. They are another Army family, have an adorable little girl and another little boy on the way!

Rules are to list 10 interesting things about yourself and tag 7 other friends. I don't know if I'll be able to think of 10 different things, but I'll give it a shot...

1. I've been thinking about going back to school for a while now. I haven't yet because I couldn't decide what to get my degree in. I'm pretty sure I've decided on Social Work. I want to do something in the adoption process. I would love to help families out who are looking to adopt.

2. Speaking of families - I want a baby.. like NOW. I suddenly have baby fever that's crept over me in the last couple of weeks. So we may or may not be TALKING about it. No need for any mothers out there to get excited just yet.

3. I've started reading in my Bible every day. I printed out a guide online that gets you through the entire Bible in a year. I've been doing this only since Nov. 2 and it's already changed me. We're trying a new church this Sunday and I'm pretty excited.

4. I have the widest taste in music ever known to man. For example: my two favorites are The Fray and Lil Wayne, but my all time two favorite songs ever are I Can Only Imagine by Mercy Me

and Over the Rainbow by Israel Kamakawiwo'Ole

5. I'm really a HUGE nerd at heart. If reading didn't make me sleepy, I would read all day long. And I'm the master at Sudoku. The regular 9x9 grid bores me. I need the big one that mixes 5 grids together.

6. I'm really excited about the whole moving around the world aspect of the Army. I realize this may change after the 700th move, but for right now, I'm soaking it up. The thought of living in another country thrills me. But I'll be devastated if none of my family ever visits me.

7. I have incredibly unruly hair. I have to straighten it every day now that it's short so in order to even leave the house on a daily basis it takes me at least an hour to get ready including shower. Yuck.

8. I've had the horrible habit of nail biting since I came out of the womb. People say it's disgusting with good reason, but it really doesn't gross me out. I know.. it should...

That's all I have. I'm spending way too much time thinking about this!

That's all I have time for *that takes a lot time to do!!* I'm just breaking all the rules today..

I'm loving the new layout! What is the site where you found the guide for reading the bible in a year, that sounds awesome! Brian and I read at night but I don't know if we're getting as much out of it as we could be.

Oh and I totally bite my nails sometimes and it doesn't gross me out either! Haha

I'm with you on the incredibly unruly hair and the at least an hour of time spent getting ready every day. I'd hate to know how many years of my life I will have spent getting ready by the time I die. It would probably really depress me!

I'm taking a sociology class this semester and I love it. My teacher is a social worker and she is so nice. Love the class but I don't think its the career for me.

There is a program available for active duty military spouses that may work for you. It will pay up to 3 grand for two years. Email me if you want more info and I will find it back.

Since my hubs is in the Reserves now it won't work for me.

Congrats! :)

I'm bad about biting my nail, too. Really bad. Like to the point where David said, "You should go get your nails done." Yep, he is fine to bankroll fake nails for me if it means I don't bite my nails.

Brandi said...

OMG Yayy! You did pick me. WOot (Beyond excited here, not even kidding hehe).

Ok nail biting, I FELL YOU! Seriously I only quit ... well I'll leave that for my list of ten things because honestly that's gonna be hard. LOL

Yay for wanting a baby, I wish I could have a kid today ... lol Not gonna happy though.

Ok SO going to go do this right now. : D

BABY!? hooray! you know i got the fever a lil while ago too...its subsided now, only because I know we have a plan :) please move back here and we'll have babies together, k?

and i bite my nails too, girl. the longest i didnt bite them was the 2 months before my wedding.

i think you should GO FOR IT- with school. You just gotta sit down and do it. You would be wonderful at social work :) And you would be so fulfilled! But I know you, and you would get sooooo emotionally involved!

Your so cute! I enjoyed learning more about you. I agree I am so thankful that we have the chance to move all over the world!! I think it is great for our family. That is awesome that you are reading the Bible everyday! We have family devotions everyday and usually read a proverb a day. It gives us such encouragement for our day! Hugs, Ginger
