Day 2

A picture of you and the person you have been closest to the longest

Besides family, Beth (Treado) Simms has been my nearest and dearest friend since 2nd grade. Even though it's only day 2 of the challenge, I'm going to cheat and reference one of my previous posts about my friendship with Beth and her awesome wedding last January.

In other news, Charlie got his first tooth yesterday! Only 19 more teeth to go!

Day 1

A picture of yourself and 10 facts

That's me circa 1983. Seriously Mom. What is on my head? You should have been locked up for this fashion disaster!

Sadly though, the most recent picture I could find of myself was even worse than this one. Since I'm finally back into my old jeans (who knew it would take 5 months...guess I should have said no to a few of those pregnancy cravings), I guess a new picture or two is in order. I'll put that on my to-do list.

Time for some facts.

1. I still press the space bar twice after ending a sentence. Jordan thinks this is weird. Anyone else out there still holding on?

2. I can swallow horse pills but cough syrup makes me gag. No NyQuil for this girl.

3. I saw Food, Inc. and it's scarier than Saw.

4. The older I get the shorter my "don't do" list becomes. I used to "not do" the color purple (the actual color, not the movie), real Coke, or mayo. Now I own a purple shirt that I really like, I will sip on a Coke slushy, and even like Bang Bang Shrimp which has mayo in it. Go me!

5. I shower at night 90% of the time. I don't know why more people don't do this. Who wants to go to bed dirty? Ewww!

6. I took piano lessons from 1st grade until 11th grade. I can still play "Mary had a Little Lamb" on demand. I'm pretty talented.

7. I'm terrible with punctuation. Sometimes, I, go, a, little, overboard, on, the, commas, or just put a lot of periods in a row........just for fun.

8. I had natural childbirth and would do it again in a heartbeat.

9. If given the choice of a personal trainer, chef, or maid, I'd choose the maid!

10. Even though I live in Dallas, TX, I still call Georgia "home".

30 Day Challenge

I'm ready to try this one more time. But I'm no fool. I know I need a plan. Boundaries. A deadline.

So here's the challenge. 30 days of blogging (let's be honest and make it 30 posts in 40 days). And since words alone are boring, there will be PICTURES! Everyone knows that's why you "read" blogs anyway.

Day 01 - A picture of yourself with ten facts
Day 02 - A picture of you and the person you have been closest with the longest
Day 03 - A picture of the cast from your favorite show

Day 07 - A picture of your most treasured item

Day 09 - A picture of the person who has gotten you through the most
Day 10 - A picture of the person you do the most ****** up things with
Day 11 - A picture of something you hate
Day 12 - A picture of something you love

Day 28 - A picture of something you're afraid of
Day 29 - A picture that can always make you smile
Day 30 - A picture of someone you miss

And in an attempt to make it more interesting, I will not allow myself to use the default answer of Jordan or Charlie for everything. Okay. Go.
