the february fifteen

February 15, 2013

I have loved reading posts by other bloggers that share random personal things about them. To me the ones that have done this make their blogs that much more friendly. I was inspired so starting this month I thought it would be fun to share fifteen random facts about me and life on the fifteenth of every month. For March fifteenth I am happy to answer questions if there is anything that you would like to know! Just feel free to email me!

(1st) Every summer photo album's title on my personal facebook page is phrases from the song "the water is wide".

(2nd) In this month alone I will write, edit, and re-write over 100 pages of writing for grad school and for the book I am writing.

(3rd) After number two you might be curious to know if I like writing. I love it. And I love grad school and learning.

(4th) I am allergic to chicken. Yes, I can imagine your look... I had the same one last year when I found out. *smiles*

(5th) Yes, I am tall. NO I did not play basketball. (Well, ok not completely true. I played for thirty minutes when I was in high school before the coach kicked me off the team for being to nice.) I can still play a mean game of horse. *smiles*

(6th) I think that writing out numbers is prettier then just putting the number symbol. See what I mean? hahaha

(7th) Even though I dream about being on the Amazing Race, I think that the Biggest Loser is one of the most inspirational shows on television. I am so honored to have gone to school with Michael Dorsey from the Biggest Loser. Cheering you on Mike to win the at home competition!

(8th) I LOVE mail. Seriously love it. So I was saddened to hear that starting in August mail is not going to be delivered on Saturdays.

(9th) A great thing about my life right now is having a schedule that matches my sisters' so we get to talk every morning. SO AWESOME.
(10th) I admire those that can memorize tons of scripture every day and month. That is not me. I do best when I focus on one verse or a small series of verses and really imprint this on my heart. Psalms 41:23 is the verse that I am memorizing this month.

(11th) Less then four months to camp. I am sooo thankful!
(12) I drink at least three bottles of SMARTwater everyday.

(13) Yes, I do have a crush on Prince Harry. Yes, I did have his picture set as background on my visionboard when I was teaching. And yes, I LOVE when my lovely former students give me calendars as gifts like this: {Thank you FFS!!}

(14) My favorite book that I have read this month is "God on Mute". It was suggested by a dear friend and it is wonderful. I can't recommend it enough. You can find it on Amazon HERE

(15) The best decision that I made this past month? To start this blog. *smiles*


  1. This is a fun idea! I like it. I had no idea they were going to stop delivering mail on Saturdays... Snail mail is the best

    1. Hi Jen! Thank you so much for stopping by! I know... I was shocked too when I heard this! From what I understand they are still going to deliver packages but they just won't have regular mail service. :( Sad! Thanks again for stopping by Jen!
