25 Things You Don't Know About Me

 I admit it. I do, occasionally, like to read US Magazine. One of the features in their magazine is a spotlighted celebrity and "25 Things you Don't Know About Me".

I thought it might be fun to come up with my own list. So here goes:

1. My middle name is Carol
2. I've owned 9 cars:
        1985 Ford Mustang
         1992 Mitsubishi Mirage (totaled it, thank you dump truck    and 18 wheeler that made me the middle of their sandwich)
         1993 Mitsubishi Mirage (the previous one saved my life, I was getting another)
         1995 Honda Civic
         1996 Saturn SC1
         1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse (my favorite!)
         2000 Ford Explorer (liked this a lot)
         2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue
         2004 Ford Taurus
3. I've visited 5 countries
4. I've visited 15 states
5. I avoid confrontation. I will bite my tongue as long as possible. 
6. I want a tattoo. I know WHAT I want (I think) just not sure WHERE
7. I really can't stand toys all over my living room. But I have given in...with 3 kids, I'm outnumbered.
8. I've never been to Vegas and am just dying to go.
9. Ditto for New York City
10. I can't stand for people to talk when I am trying to watch a movie.
11. I can be VERY grumpy when I first wake up. Very.
12. I want a minivan. Yes, I really do. Or a GMC Acadia. Minivan would be more practical.
13. One of my biggest pet peeves? Typing an entire email in ALL CAPS, please, don't shout at me.
14. I LOVE the ocean. But really just being near water is so very calming to me.
15. One of my first jobs was as a manager for Claire's Boutiques
16. I love to wander around a bookstore with a coffee in hand and nowhere to be.
17. I have huge crush on Toby Keith. HUGE. MASSIVE.
18. Zach's middle name is Toby. 
19. No it isn't. It's Edward. Seriously.
20. I love sarcasm. (OK so maybe you already knew that one.)
21. I am an extremely impatient person.
22. I am a neat freak, but not always that organized.
23. I make an amazing Chicken Pot Pie
24. My favorite thing to do is travel. It makes coming home that much sweeter.
25. I like to play trivia.

WHEW. That was harder than you might think. And a bit fun! I would love to read 25 things from you guys!

I avoid confrontation, too. And I would love a minivan... never thought I'd say those words, lol. What kind of tattoo do you want?

I have a friend who drives a minivan. I love to make fun of those things, but I drove that van to Ohio and back once and it really drove great. Very comfy and easy to drive.

We need to have a blogger meet up in Vegas sometime.

5 - Really? I'm calling fowl on that one.

6 - Let's go! I'm ready for another one!

8 - Ditto

9 - Ditto, and I lived less than three hours north of it for three years!

11 - It's genetic. I'm even worse after a nap if I have one, which is why I don't take them often.

15 - I still remember all the Claire's boxes at Christmas

17 - I don't get it. We have wildly different tastes
