Well there you have it. When I started this post I had no idea what I was going to write. I thought "25 things? That's easy!" - wrong! I had a hard time coming up with 25 things about myself, Weird huh? Did I miss anything? Feel free to ask in the comments. It's kind of fun to have something other than a 1 way conversation on


  1. Wow, some of those things I did not know about you! Speaking as your mother, though, yes I can think of a lot are a loving mother, you have a beautiful singing voice, you are very clever and smart, you are compassionate, you are fairly private, you like to sleep, you secretly love playing video games, and one more before I go to bed, you are a GREAT DAUGHTER!

  2. First of all I do not have a beautiful singing voice! You must still be wearing "mommy goggles"..haha.

  3. haha i do not think i have ever heard you sing. but i have to disagree with mom where she said "you are fairly private" no you are the most private person ever, there is know "fairly" about it .. lol


  4. What's funny is I never would have thought of that word to describe myself.
