Seven Things About Me(some of these you might already know)
- My brother is my hero. He has been since I was little. He is an amazing man, brother, and now husband to my wonderful sister-in-law. When I was about 13 I wrote him a poem called My Hero. I even wrote it using my limited calligraphy skills. He still has it in his home today. He was also Man of Honor in J and I's wedding.
- I love sports! Well most of them...not too big a basketball fan except College b-ball during March Madness. I currently play in two Fantasy Football leagues and love it!
- I can play both the bass guitar and the violin. Although it has been a while on either one so I'm not sure what it would sound like. On that same note I can read music to play an instrument but not for voice.
- The nickname Churchy came from one of my husband's friends when he first started dating. J is a sailor and at points in his life had been a bit of a hmm how to say this...well a player. And when R heard that the girl he was going to date worked in a church and attended church on a regular basis he wasn't sure how that was going to work out with J. So he would refer to me as Churchy in conversation. To this day R is still embarrassed that I know. I obviously found it funny since I use it on my blog.
- I am a procrastinator. I was told in college that it was due to the fact that I was really a perfectionist and if I put it off til the last minute it wouldn't be perfect and I could explain it as a rush job. I shrugged it off at the time because in my mind I'm far from a perfectionist. But more recently I've been noticing some perfectionist characteristics so we'll see.
- I believe you get what you pay for in all things. And sometimes I'm ok getting something inexpensive because it works. Other times I want to get the quality item because it lasts.
- I love writing, beading, and sewing. I find them to be a great outlet. But I often put them off because I just don't take the time to do them. Much like exercise I always feel better after I've done them even if it is just for a few minutes.
