The One Where I Tell You 25 Pieces of Meaningless Information

So here at the A Ro blog it is my 400th post.  In honor of that major feat (as I really didn't think I'd last this long) I am going to give you some tidbits of information about ME!!! 

I am sure some of you thought that it would be a giveaway...but nope not this time but I have some inside information that there MIGHT be a giveaway sometime early next week...oooooohhhhh

Now some of you (3.5 to be exact) might know some of these things already so just skip over the ones you already know about and take note of the ones you don't as there will be a quiz sometime next week.

not really
  1. I have a dog named Maggie...see an easy right off the bat tidbit of information.
  2. My favorite color is purple not sure why we as a society feel like we really know someone as long as we know their favorite color...need to find out where that came from.
  3. I have no evidenced by the rather large scar across my belly which prohibits me from ever wearing a bikini that and the fact that I like donuts.
  4. I have the overwhelming urge to make my bed everyday...
  5. I hate to drive...thankfully my husband humors me and will drive anytime we are together and will even go with me places just I don't have to drive.  It isn't that I DREAD to drive, just don't have fun doing it.
  6. I wish I knew how to pop my gum...I realize that some of you think that is a disgusting habit, but I think it is totally cool.
  7. My Tupperware cabinet is so organized that I am the only one allowed to put anything in it or take anything out of it.
  8. My first rock concert was to go see Rick Springfield with my neighbor friend...and my times.
  9. I have had glasses or contacts since I was three years old, and they were NEVER straight on my face in any of my childhood pictures.
  10. My Bath and Body Works flavor is Warm Vanilla Sugar...oddly enough it is Rich's favorite flavor too :)
  11. I hate to backtrack...I am always thinking about how to get somewhere in the most direct way.
  12. I was a vegan vegetarian for 2 years...the key word is WAS.
  13. I am the oldest of my siblings and the about 6.5 inches.
  14. I can tie a cherry stem in a knot with my long as it is a rather long cherry stem.
  15. I am a classically trained opera singer, turned mother, turned teacher...thank goodness I am a better mother and teacher than opera singer.
  16. My Starbucks drink of choice is a iced skinny cinnamon dolce latte decaf, I like to call it the hardly-worth-it-latte
  17. I secretly like Katy Perry...although I guess it isn't really a secret anymore.
  18. I need to hit snooze exactly 2 times before I can get up.  This makes knowing what time I need to set the alarm a math lesson every night.
  19. I hate dog hair even though it is the secret ingredient in most everything I cook.
  20. If you are facing the bed I have to sleep on the left side.
  21. I am an early to bed early to rise kind of girl...yep even on the weekend.
  22. I hate public speaking but have no trouble at all singing in front of large crowds.
  23. I love shoes and if you ask my kids they will tell you that I have a million pairs.
  24. I don't like anyone to touch my feet therefore I have never had a pedicure...I know that I am missing out on a heavenly event, but it would cause me to pass out.
  25. I married my high school sweetheart after 20 years and thankfully he loves me because and in spite of all these things.

  1. Ha-#19...I know what you mean : ) I secretly like Katy Perry too. My oldest daughter is home and we are hoping to get pedicures today. I love them but am trying to decide how I feel about walking out of the salon today in flip flops in 30 degree weather. I do not wear shoes for the whole day when I get a pedicure...I know they tell you they dry in a couple of hours but I've ruined a few by putting on my shoes too soon.

  2. Loved reading your answers.

    I guess I'll never have a pedicure either, for the same reason.

    I also sleep on the left side of the bed.
    This is because hubby sleeps by the door and the fan.

  3. An unmade bed makes me feel like the whole house is dirty. CH is the last one out, so it's NEVER made when I get home. I'll make it right before I get in at night. Looks like you're not alone on Katy Perry: I like her, too.
    I'm extremely ticklish, but am loving pedicures! They keep you talking so you don't pay attention to what they're doing!

  4. I TRY to only snooze once so I set the alarm accordingly (my snooze is 8 minutes - weird), but usually I hit it at least twice. I've had one pedicure - it was hard because I'm VERY ticklish - but once she got a firm grip on my foot & massaged it a little I thought, "what foot phobia?"
