35 things

I am turning 35 tomorrow.
That is like a real live adult age.
I still mostly feel about 22.
But am starting to look not so 22.
Where the heck did these wrinkles come from??


I am going to be busy being celebrated tomorrow, so I thought I would do a little posty today.
(I take my birthday very seriously.)

So here are 35 things you never knew you never wanted to know about me.

1.  I will re-read a book if it is good enough.  I read To Kill A Mockingbird every other year or so.
2.  My underwear drawer is more granny than sexy.
3.  I hate to unload the dishwasher.  Hate.
4.  Hearing the mail drop in my box makes me happy.  The possibilities of what may have come are endless.
5.  I secretly want Ellie to be the next great female golfer.
6.  I could eat popcorn every day of my life.
7.  My closet is a disaster.
8.  I am a neat freak.  So the above is driving me crazy.
9.  My current favorite color is green.
10.  I get overly excited when I see my tulips and daffodils coming up.
11.  I can hold a grudge.  I'm not proud of it.
12.  I love my feet.  They are pretty.
13.  I think the amount of homework Ellie gets is a lot for a 5 year old.
14.  I still miss the show ER.
15.  I collect salt and pepper shakers.
16.  I am so in love with my cat it is embarrasing.
17.  I want to learn to knit.
18.  My husband can make me laugh harder than anyone else.
19.  I never sleep well.
20.  I will go out of my way to avoid confrontation.
21.  I will park farther away from a store to avoid a tight parking spot.
22.  I am a huge dork.  My family laughs at me all the time about the silly things I do.
23.  I am terrified I am going to see the end of the world.
24.  I secretly think I could solve a crime.
25.  I love to meet friends for lunch.
26.  I am really hard on Ellie sometimes.  I expect a lot.
27.  I only shave my legs every other week or so.  I am not a hairy person.
28.  Speaking of shaving, I went to "Brazil" recently.  I won't be doing that again.  It hurt so freaking much.  If you see me in real life.  Ask me about it.  It's a great story.
29.  I have realized that being out of your comfort zone is a fun place to be.
30.  I am on 26 of my 100 miles for Lent.
31.  I can be selfish.  Don't like this either.
32.  I want to go to NYC so bad I can't see straight.
33.  I wish I dreamed about my mom more.
34.  I wish I were more confident.
35.  I plan to consume nothing but cupcakes and wine tomorrow.

Happy Birthday to Me!

Happy happy birthday, Tia! You're a whole 6 months older than me. I'm jealous of your not-too-hairy legs.
