for the love...

I've been tagged about 15 times on Facebook to fill out the silly 25 random facts about me. You know the "fill this out and then tag 25 people" thing. Since I'm hardly ever on Facebook, I decided to do it here instead. I can't imagine that there are things that I haven't said before, but here goes...

1. I love my blog way more than Facebook.

2. I have more headbands than jewelry. I'm not a jewelry type of girl. I made myself stop buying it cause I just don't wear it very often. Headbands though....I'm addicted. Most of them are just ribbon from random packages or clearance bins.

3. I don't like to cook, but I really, really wish I did.

4. I haven't printed out pictures since 2006. Digital has killed my photo printing.

5. I haven't gotten a haircut since May of last year.

6. I think I was born in the wrong era because I adore 1940/40/50's clothes, music and style.

7. God is teaching me to give sacrificially lately. And it is one of the most freeing things/terrifying things I've ever done.

8. I think about orphans about 50% of the day. And they are always from other countries. Mostly Chinese.

9. When I dream of having a family, the kids are never white, American kids. They are a rainbow of nations. Africa, China, South Korea, India.

10. I don't enjoy talking on the phone. Don't take it personally if I don't call you. It's not you, it's me.

11. I'm an incredibly shy person. Always have been. Working in this environment (camp) has forced me to be more outgoing, but it's still extremely hard for me.

12. I love young adult fiction. It's my favorite section in the library to browse.

13. I've always wanted to have a Great Dane. I think they are adorable.

14. I'm taking an art/craft class from two of my favorite artists. It starts in 2 weeks. SO excited! More details soon.

15. I dream about living in Hawaii at least once every day. If I could transplant my cottage to anyplace, it would be on the North Shore of Oahu.

16. My cottage was built in 1963. We think the only insulation it has is a small bit in a section of the ceiling. None in the walls, nor the floor. Brrr-rrrr.

17. I have a fear of tests. I'm a terrible test taker. Yeah, college was rough.

18. I've seen Julie Andrews, John Williams and Will Smith in person.

19. I've been an avid journal keeper since high school. I have notebook upon notebook full of my thoughts, dreams, heartbreaks and lessons.

20. I love mayonnaise. I could eat it by the spoonful.

21. My first job after getting my degree was washing dishes 3 times a day for 150 people. God changed me forever during that summer. I saw Him more clearly than I ever had before.

22. My favorite time of day is twilight when the sky and the water melt into each other. I never get tired of staring at it.

23. When I was 22, I never thought I would reach the age of 25. For some reason, I had this feeling that I would die young.

24. I eat sandwiches every day for lunch. I LOVE them.

25. I get almost giddy excited when I fly/drive home after a long time away. I LOVE where I live. love~love~love. We used to visit this town when I was growing up, and I would dream of living here. And now I still can't believe that I actually do. It's one of the coolest places I have ever been in the entire world.

I feel the same way about mayonnaise.

Val, that makes my heart so happy. The arteries may be clogged, but they are happy.

Funny Val should say that because #20 made me throw up in my mouth a lil bit. And I don't even hate mayo. Just the thought of eating by the spoonful makes me nauseous. But I enjoyed the rest.

again, I'm a little behind. #20 made me throw up too...I hate Mayo. I can't even touch the stuff. YUCK!!!
