I Am . . I Am Not . .

I am 26 years old
(soon to be 27, January 12th )

I am a hazel eyed girl
( Alex eyes are exactly like mine and we will see about Avin )

I am left handed 
( Alex will be left handed as well and we will see about Avin )
 
Smoking 
( it is nasty, disgusting and I do not know why people do it )
 
Modeling
( I wish I could get my girls into modeling - but would never pay to get them started )

I am a big time day dreamer
( if I where to win the lottery, I know exactly what I would do with it )
 
I am horrible with grammar and spelling
( where/were, to/too, there/their - I am always messing them up )

I am a believer of Small Government
( yes that would mean that I am Republican )
 
I want another baby 
( it is no secret I long for another baby but the husband says no way )

I am not a believer of Home Schooling
( it may be great for some people but the interaction with others, the taking direction and discipline from others, meeting people from different walks of life and sports are all things I long for for my children )

I do not believe in Abortion
( there is always another answer )
 
I have a serious addiction to Baby Gap
( almost everything I buy is on sale, from a consignment shop or on ebay )
 
I am Glad I have girls 
( I can not deal with the guns, shooting each other, talking about killing each other and hitting or beating each other up.  I would kill them or kill myself he he only kidding but seriously )

I have an issue with my girls wearing the same Holiday dresses
( I come from slipt families and I have issues if Alex wore the same dress to each place, 
pictures people pictuers! )
 
Blue is my favorite color
( I don't wear much of it though )

The idea of cloth diapering makes me sick
( I could not do it, my husband throws onesies away when Avin has blow outs, neither one of us could do cloth diapers )
 
I need a wardrobe makeover
( my girls are always dressed cute and stylish but not me, I need major help. Someone want to send me to What Not To Wear )

Who needs Welfare?
( enough said, get rid of it )

There are two trips I can not wait to take someday in life.
( travel throughout Alaska and Go on an African Safari - all for the pictures and wildlife )

I can not stand the heat
( if you asked my husband I am never happy, either hot or cold )

I hope to someday meet a few of my blogger friends 
( a few - Katrina, Heather, Sharstin, Annie, Paige, Katie, Stephanie, Melissa, Candice & Stefanie )

I want to finish school
( i just need to do it but life is crazy busy and I can't keep using that as an excuse.  I wish you could just do on the job training, ok that would be kind of scary but still I would love that - I would love to be a nicu nurse or just volunteer there )
 
Not A Sucker For Romance 
( just hoping my husband remembers are anniversary on Wed the 29th - 3 years )

Big Time Multitasker
( I can never do one thing at a time, always have to be doing 3 or 4 things at a time )

Messy
( that sums it up, my house is never clean! I mean never ever clean unless we are having a party or a lot of people over.  I am ok with this because we spend 90% of our time outside after work with our children and when I come in I want to relax and watch my shows, my house can be dirty I don't really mind, I am enjoying this time with my children and with my shows or editing pictures )
 
Alex and Avin Schooling
( I will be learning right along side Alex and Avin when they are in school.  I sure hope I can help them when it comes to homework, I know my husband will be able to )

Clean Freak
( part of me wishes I had a little of this in my blood but there isn't, I am getting better though, slowly )
 
Take Control 
( I don't always do this but I can not stand when kids run all over the parent.  Parent's need to take control and lay down the laws and stick to them - I need to do this sometimes to I know.  A child doesn't need 10 reminders and 10 chances! )
 
Runner 
( I am not a runner but I wish I was, I might start making a few goals in life, running would be one of them, I just want to run, something to get rid of stress and have sometime to myself )

Routines 
( I am not a routine person.  my girls have learned to just sleep when they are tired, in the car or in the carseat/stroller.  After having Avin I have been trying to get better because I want her sleeping in her crib so I try to get her to nap there when we are home and not at work ).

Etsy
( yes I am addicted to Etsy, so many great things and great people on there )

Time Management
( I am horrible with this and when I want something done I usually want it done right then and there, talk about driving people nuts )
 
Uneven Number In A Wedding Party
( I can not stand when there is a bride and 3 bridesmaids, I want the bride to be centered and an even number on each side of her.  Same goes for the groomsmen! Drives me crazy when I shoot a wedding that has an odd number of bridesmaids or groomsmen, never looks right to me in pictures )

Well that is enough about me.  I know you all wont agree with the things I said but they are true and real things about me.  Love them, hate them, agree or don't agree - THEY ARE ME!

I thought my hubby was the only one who threw away onesies when they get poop on them. Ha!

I also need a wardrobe makeover. My kids always look cute and I can look like a slob. ;)

I like your list!

Annie said...

I loved this post!! We have a lot on common :)...and I really hope that I can meet you and our other blogger buddies IRL some day :) I feel like I have so many good friends through blogging!

Stephanie said...

Those were great! Fun to read a little bit more about what makes you...you!! I am so right there with you on the uneven number in a wedding party thing! I like to make even numbers of bouquets too, I'm always paranoid I'm going to forget one when they are uneven!! However, the worst is when there are totally unmatched numbers of groomsmen and bridesmaids! I had a wedding once like that and it drove me crazy!! Who does that???

Katrina said...

Loooove this post. I love finding out more about people. I'm nosy like that. :)

I hope we meet someday too. We're going to have to. Our children are destined to marry haha.

What a cute post! We'd get along great ;) I'm also left handed and have been wondering if my girls will be left handed, too! Interesting!

Shay said...

LOL! The cloth diapering thing made me laugh! I love cloth diapers, but it's not for everyone! :)

I enjoyed this post! We think Riley is going to be a lefty too! I always thought I was the only one who noticed things like an odd number of bridesmaids or groomsmen! That drives me crazy! Haha! I'm also right there with you on the whole wardrobe makeover. I can't even remember the last time I bought myself a cute new outft but you better believe my kids will be dressed to perfection every day! :)

It was great getting to know more about you! I love seeing pictures of your beautiful girls, but it's nice to hear about you once in a while! ;)
I had to laugh over the one about your girls wearing the same holiday dresses. I have an issue with that, too. My kids have far too many clothes!
Thanks for keeping it real! :)
