25 things about me

Like everyone else who is part of the world of Facebook I am doing this post.

1. My fav color is pink. However, I do not have anything pink in my home decor. Shame I know. I blame my husband.

2. When I was younger I wanted to be a fashion designer, and then through my teenage years a dentist. I ended up becoming a nurse; random!

3. My two front teeth are fake. When I was in fifth grade both were crushed to dust by a concrete floor during a game of keep away. (I was tripped!) They are now crowned after numerous (probably 100s of hours) visits to the dentist chair.

4. I love jewelry. I have a gemstone collection and actually make jewelry on occasion. Bling!

5. My dream car is a BMW Z3, not Z4, I like the old school one from the late 90s.

6. I am claustrophobic to the point I freak out sometimes at the mall during Christmas, however I do ride in elevators but sometimes I close my eyes.

7. My favorite flowers are pink roses and white daisies. Together is better.

8. One of my biggest pet peeves if when I see children unrestrained in a car. It is against the law and car seats save lives!

9. This is somewhat embarrassing but I can burp the alphabet. Yes a useless but amusing talent.

10. I can not sleep with pants on. I have to be in a shirt and panties to sleep well. When I travel if I have a room with door then Game on! I only will wear pants if it is really cold (camping) or I am sleeping on someones couch.

11. I will wear flip flops year round. I don't care if it is 10 degrees outside, they are comfortable! I am not wearing them so much lately because I have not been able to get pedicure so my feet are hiding in socks.

12. I have a large shoe collection. In our master bedroom we have two closets. I chose the one with the built in shelves (it is a little smaller) just to store my shoes. When we moved away from JMU I had to get rid of a lot of shoes. We had limited space in the moving truck. I cried as I picked which ones to give to Salvation Army. I still shed a tear when I think back to that day.

13. My favorite store is Target. I shop there at least 2 times a week.

14. I oil paint in my free time. I am not very good but it is relaxing.

15. My favorite alcoholic drink is a Venetian Sunset. It is champagne, grenadine and pineapple juice. Delicious but only with higher grade champagne.

16. I love my work clothes. Scrubs are like pajamas, so comfortable!

17. I hate paying bills. Its not really about the money but the process of paying them.

18. I can get ready to go out faster than my husband. I have it down to a science after all these years.

19. My initals are "PP". This is odd seeing that I work on a floor where a specialty is Urology. So I am Nurse PP. It is so awesome to hear this everyday I work. Note the sacrasm in my typing. I usually go by "PMP" because I'm pimp like that!

20. I prefer to eat vegetables rather than meat.

21. I LOVE Project Runway. Its an obession. Durham now has Bravo so I do not have to watch it on the laptop via Youtube.

22. My favorite holiday is 4th of July. I just love the spirit of it. St. Patty's Day and Christmas are my second favs.

23. I dress my animals up all the time. I don't care what people think because my dog loves to dress up as Tinkerbell and the cats love their outfits too!

24. I would love to become a nurse educator one day, but just as a side job. I love to teach but I need the action of patient care to be satisfied.

25. I am ready to start a family now. Maybe soon??

There are my 25 things. Maybe down the road I can add to the list.

I love pink!! Hubby hates it, but I'm in love.

Don't be ashamed of burping. My hubby and I have burping contests all the time.

I wear flip flops all year round, except when it snowed that one day and when it is 20 in the morning.

Don't feel bad about your initials. Mine were PC before I got married.

Ha, your two front teeth. Remember when you broke one while we decorated the hallway and you had to make an emergency appointment before the homecoming dance? Was that sophomore or junior year? Good times.

Dude, and why aren't we friends on facebook? I looked for yo but couldn't find you!

Hi! I just found myself on your blog and after reading your 25 List, realized we have a lot of things in common, such as: wearing flip-flops, burping the alphabet, sleep attire, etc. :)
