That's how old I turn today.
I love birthdays and I love getting older. To me each year brings something new and with something new there is usually happy times involved. I love what each year of my life has brought and I look forward to each and every new year more now then ever before because I have a husband and a child ( soon to be children ). These years of my life are what I have been waiting for, what I always dreamed about so of course getting a year older is something I look forward to.

I thought I would pull together 26 things about myself. Some of you might know every single thing, some of you might only know a few of them. There might even be someone out there that didn't know one thing, I doubt that though!

  • I am left handed
  • I broke my foot when I was younger ( I am not sure which one though and actually my mom broke it )
  • I have hazel eyes
  • I still get giddy when I think about my husband
  • I went to sylvan learning center when I was in middle school and high school ( math was and still is my worst subject )
  • I don't plan on ever moving away from Minnesota
  • I have been lucky and have been able to travel a lot with my family ( Mexico - 4, Florida - 3, California - 2, Canada, Las Vegas - 2, Chicago )
  • I am addicted to reality TV and my husband hates it ( idol, bachelor, biggest looser, so you think you can dance, survivor and more )
  • I had a breast reduction at age 21 ( I believe ) - I am hoping to breast feed this baby but had a lot of trouble with Alex so not sure I will be able to with this one.
  • I couldn't tell you what my favorite alcoholic drink is ( i don't order enough drinks with alcohol to have a favorite and I always try something new and usually don't like it )
  • I was a cheerleader in high school and middle school - I cheered on competitive squads ( Eden Prairie Comp Squad and Minnesota All Stars ). With those squads I was able to travel to North Carolina, Chicago and Florida
  • Orange HI-C from McDonalds ( Yes Please )
  • Alexandra is my middle name ( Alexander was my grandpas middle name )
  • Not only do I love reality TV but I just love TV ( house, chuck, 24, the big bang theory, heroes and more )
  • I enjoy playing cards with friends and family
  • I love my live in GEEK, even if he doesn't always help me ( yes my husband works for Geek Squad )
  • In the summer one of my favorite things to do is sit outside with my neighbors while Alex plays with her friends. Its relaxing and it always me to socialize and chat!
  • I secretly hope Alex follows in my footsteps and plays volleyball, is a cheerleader and just overall enjoys sports ( if we have another girl, I think Alex will be the one in Hockey )
  • I have a blackberry ( I love text messaging and black berry messaging )
  • I am loud - yes alex takes after me
  • I am not a neat/clean freak - my house is almost always mess ( just not on my top things to do )
  • My favorite restaurants are Redstone, PF Changs and Biaggis
  • I love mint chip ice cream
  • I love the Twilight and Sookie Stackhouse Series
  • Total Chad and I probably own about 800 - 1000 movies ( we have now started buying blu ray )
  • I don't have a favorite Movie but I love Action and Comedy/Romance
I think that might have been 1 or 2 more then 26 but now you know a little bit more about me! I didn't think I was going to be able to come up with 26 things but I did it and I still have a lot more I could add. Leave anything out, want to know more about me or something I mentioned, just ask :)

It was great learning more about you. I share your love of several TV shows. My husband has well over 1000 DVD's-crazy, but he loves collecting them!
