25 (Additional) Random Facts

It's been a year since we did this; thought it might be fun to do again.  I certainly enjoyed reading my friend's list!  I tried not to duplicate anything I put on my list on facebook last year.

1. I won’t eat leftovers. Unless it’s pancakes; I’ll reheat those babies.

2. I love Nutella. It’s probably my favorite chocolate. Shoot. I should have done Laura’s chocolate exchange!

3. I have become comfortable being “liberal.” It’s actually brought me closer to my faith.

4. I have been a Realtor for four and a half years.

5. I grew up in a small town, but have no desire to live in one again.

6. I love entertaining, but I usually have a meltdown a few days before because it overwhelms me.

7. I think that differences in politics sometimes equal differences in values, and it’s that, not politics, that draws us apart.

8. I sing songs to my kids every night when I tuck them in.

9. I love to read, but do it much less now that there’s a TV in our bedroom. That bothers me.

10. My favorite part about parenting is watching my children learn.

11. I think that Modern Family might be the funniest show on TV. Ever.

12. I am living a very charmed life.

13. I use powder laundry detergent. I think liquid is a ripoff.

14. I am not very thrifty otherwise, but am working on that.

15. I am sad thinking about Matty going to kindergarten, but I’m ready for that next stage in life.

16. I love love love contemporary Christian music.

17. I adore being in my thirties.

18. I fell in love with guacamole in 2009.

19. My four-year-old wants to marry me.

20. I sleep with an electric blanket year-round.

21. The boys call my husband “poppa.”

22. I listen to two radio stations: AM950 (I particularly love Ed Schultz) and KTIS.

23. When the kids are in the car, we listen to children’s songs.

24. There is no place I’d rather be than under a palm tree. Anywhere they grow.

25. My favorite color is green.

Thanks goodness..No shockers to me in there.

As always, laughing at Cory's comment.

Don't reheated pancakes get a little soggy? Or do you toast 'em? Or maybe you like them that way. With Nutella. :)

Modern Family rocks. And green *is* the best color. Loved everything on this list, Leanne! Fun, fun.

Leanne said...

Nope, they don't get soggy. And I *love* them with nutella. Delish.

Green is the best color because it's the color of life, right? Here in MN we see green in the "alive" months. Leaves, grass...I can't wait to see it again!!

Hee. We would not make good roommates. I can eat leftovers all week and never grow tired of them. ;)

I also have no desire to live in a small town, though I would make an exception for the towns on the Oregon coast. But the funny thing is that I generally consider Hillsboro to be smaller - except there are around 90000 people in it, LOL.

When I watched the kids Sunday, I was reading them a story and Matty said he wanted to marry me too! :)

Andy said...

Have you had Nutella Crepes? I always get them at the State Fair or the Renaissance Festival (I don't know...crepes don't seem terribly renaissance-y). YUM.

Fun exercise--yes, I'm sure having to pick 25 new things and being a year older makes it seem like it's being done for the first time. :)

*make (Plural = make...not makes.)


Feel free to delete. I just needed to post it for me.

Leanne said...

Make? Are you sure?

I always enjoy reading random facts about people. I'm the same way about #6. And, I love Cory's comment. :)

Powder laundry detergent. You are cute.
And Matty has good taste.

Amanda Kay said...

I buy powder too. Sometimes I feel old fashioned for doing so, but you get more loads out of it!

I have yet to try Nutella.

And my funniest tv show right now - The Office. I have always worked in offices, so I'm not sure if that's why I love it so much, or if it's just my kind of humor.

Leanne said...

Amanda - The Office is h.i.l.a.r.i.o.u.s. It's not just you. I love every character on that show. It was my favorite sitcom until Modern Family! :)
