37 years I have been alive today!

So I thought I would tell you 37 things about me.

1. I was born during a blizzard and my mom made it to the hospital but not the delivery room.

2. I have 2 sisters and one brother.

3. I was married when I was 16

4.In high school I was the president of FHA (future homemakers of America)

5. I saved a stranger's life after she fell off a curb and cut open her radial artery , she later became on of my greatest friends .

6. I have great style

7. I love fresh ripe strawberries

8. I have beautiful blue eyes
9. I am not afraid to loose weight.
I am keeping what I just wrote because it's typical me
I was watching TV while I was writing this and they just said loose weight.
Ok the real # 9 I am not afraid to die.

10.When I die I want all my best girl friends to wear red stilettos to my funeral.

11. I am still madly in love with my husband after 21 years.

12.I cant stand hypocritical people.

13.I love my baths so hot that you can barley stand to get in them.

14.When I was a little girl I always said I wanted 10 little girls. I am so grateful that Heavenly father saw fit to only give me 4

15.I love musicals, when I was little me and my siblings would make up our own musicals. None of us sing very well but it was tons of fun.

16.I love rollercoaster especially fast ones.

17.I love girls nights out, I haven't had one in way too long.

18. I am a chocolate snob

19. Dale proposed to me with a ring he bought in a .25cent machine

20. I love being bare foot

21. I have never gone skinny dipping ( but I have gone swimming topless)

I love eating the lunch special at Vagabond Blues.
salad, a big hunk of bread and homemade soup

23. this one kills me to admit, but right now I weigh what I weighed when I gave birth to Kadie and more than I weighed when I gave birth to Shelly.

24. When i was little I swore I was adopted, then in my early 20's I was reading my medical records from birth and they were for another baby girl named Jennifer Peterson born on the same day in the same hospital I questioned if they switched our birth records or am I really the other Jennifer Peterson.

25. I love snuggling with my kiddos

26. I wish I could have one more baby.

27. When I am driving in the car alone I turn the radio up  and sing at the top of my lungs.

I love this view I drive by it 3 or 4 times a week and I always think one day I will get a family picture taken here.

29. I think I am one of the girliest girls I know

30. I often wonder how life would be if William didn't have Trisomy 18

31. I can honestly say Dale is my best friend in the whole world!

I love being with him.

32. I love trying new foods

When I was a little girl I thought I was Snow White

34. I love the smell of rain

35. I love to read romance novels and murder mysteries

36. I love fresh flowers especially pink roses

37. last but not least I hate ice cream.

My question of the day.
What is one thing you want to know about me?


Beth said...

I do have a question! I tried to Google this and really couldn't find an answer though! I love your picture up at the top where you're kissing and you have your leg raised! I've always seen that from long ago in old movies or posters etc., but don't really know what that means or where it originated? Can you explain?

Beth said...

Oh and duh....Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sarah C. said...

Happy, happy birthday! The last one floored me - silly, I know, but you hate ice cream?? I hope you have a fabulous day. Oh and a question...hmm...ok, what's your favorite pair of shoes right now? :)

shaina said...

I want to know why I didn't know I was supposed to wear red stilletos to your funeral. You need to let me know these things!

Now I know why we are friends. We have SO MANY similarities. I could have written half of those!
Love you!!

I too dislike ice cream! I just don't get it. It's COLD! How comforting is a COLD dessert?!?

Just wanted to hop on here to wish you Happy Birthday! If I had red stilletos, I would wear them to celebrate your happy day!

Oh, my question? Do you know why your favorite shoes are called "stilettos"? Interesting, no?

Ann Marie said...

Happy Birthday Lady!!!!

Sooo darn fun to read these things about you... I always love to find things I have in commen with people!

We are twinners with Rollercoasters.. Pink Roses and Baths. ( my Chad says " I don't know how your skin isn't burned off" because I take such HOT baths.. he-he.. but oh my... it's relaxing and feels good on my aching bones..

I hope you have a fabulous birthday weekend!

My question... If someone gave you $100 to spend at any store.. where would you spend it? Fabric? Shoes? Please share!

Happy Birthday. My mom was 16 when she got married. I was 19 1/2 and people tell me that is young. I was 27 when I had my last child, but I just had 3. And I love non sensible shoes, too.
