5 things

you might not have known about me.

1. One of our toilets is currently broken, which just leaves us one to use and for a family of 5 that can be a battle. (Way to start the day off with class, huh? Toilet talk. Sheesh, Beki.) The Man says it's an easy fix, but he's currently too busy working on our flip house to make time for it.

2. I tweet. I'm completely hooked on twitter. I resisted for a really long time. I pride myself on being a bit of a rebel who likes to go against the norm.
I don't own a cell phone. Have never texted anyone in my life.
But in January I finally gave in and signed up for twitter and holy cow, it's changed my life! Seriously, it's amazing. Come follow me. But don't ask me to explain it, because I don't do that very well.

3. I'm a bit stubborn sometimes (stop laughing, Mom). I always get my way. Pretty much. And if not, I pout.
I have such a lucky husband. He's so nice to let me win arguments.

4. When I was pregnant with The Baby, our home was broken into in the middle of the night. While we were here. What's creepy is that I'd known for years that it would happen. In my mind, I'd practiced the 911 call a thousand times and knew exactly how it would sound, what I'd say, how I'd react. I knew that I'd hear glass shatter and wake up in the night to a break in. Crazy, huh?

5. I've been to Hawaii a few times, but only when I was single. My brother was in the Air Force and stationed there at the same time I was a flight attendant and could fly for practically free, so I went to visit him a few times. I'd love to take The Man there someday!

Oh, and Lilo wanted to say Hi.

(I almost never use my pictures SOOC {straight out of camera - no editing} but I loved the way this one looked without touching it.)

Happy Wednesday to you!

1. your furbaby is adorable
2. I caved in & am on twitter now.
3. I'll follow your tweets, follow mine if you want.
4. I'm a nonconformsit too. My Mother always says "Jello conforms to the shape of the vessel it is placed in, Never Conform unless you think you are Jello."
5. Never been to Hawaii but would love to go.

1. Good luck with the potty issue.
2. I, too, resisted Twitter for a long while, but *sigh* I'm spending way too much time over there.
3. Yep, I'm stubborn too. Good thing my husband is so easy going. :D
4. Having someone break in in the middle of night is one of my worst fears. I've had a recurring nightmare for years where that happens. s-c-a-r-y! Thank goodness you were all safe!!
5. I've been to Hawaii many times but never with my hubby.
6. ack! Lilo is adorable!!!

That's a list of 5 things I can't touch, glad no one was hurt in the break-in. I am still refusing to twitter even though everyone I know twitters. We will see how long I can hold out. I know once I try it I will be sucked in too.

awesome pup picture!

I love that shot of your pooch. I'm just now getting into editing my photography, so I use a lot of sooc right now.


Christina said...

Potty talk is for real, man. Where would we be without toilets?
Great picture of your dog! What colors!
And do you know, I tweet in my head. Talk about silly-I think of the things I would say if I did twitter. I'm getting ready to go to bed, and am avoiding the break-in part-yikes! Hope the rest of your week is great.

I think Lilo needs a twitter account. Lilo and Gidget could be friends!
