Look Who's Late to the Versatile Blogger Party!

About a million years ago I was tagged by Emily @ in the between and XLMIC @ Taking it On to participate in the Versatile Blogger game.

The "rules":
1. Thank the giver (Thanks Emily & XL!)
2. Share 7 random things about yourself (see below)
3. Tag 15 people (below).

I’m a nerd. I really love Microsoft Excel spreadsheets and utilizing formulas in spreadsheets. I finished 4 years of college in 3 years (part of this is thanks to a few credits I picked up in high school). I really loved my accounting, information systems, and operational management classes in college. My job now has nothing to do with this stuff now, and that makes me a little sad.

These are not really my glasses.

The first time I spoke to my husband I was wearing a Santa Clause outfit. HOT.

(he is the one in the back with his eyes closed...he's still a blinker)

The next time we spoke I was wearing a Jeep t-shirt, which I still have and probably always will.

He told me that he liked my shirt. We both drove and loved Jeeps so that’s how we started talking and we realized we had so much in common. The rest is history.

I’ve never changed a baby’s diaper in my life. I babysat kids 2 times when I was younger, but they were old enough not to crap their pants. I want to have kids one day, but I don’t consider myself “good” with kids. They kind of scare me. I’m hoping God will just give me those skills (to include diaper changing) whenever we decide to have kids. Yes, I am going to be that girl at the hospital asking the nurses how to change a diaper. I’ll probably be referencing Google and YouTube a lot (fun fact: if you type "how to change a diaper" in the YouTube search, there are 9,440 results. I think I'll be okay).

We haven't gone in a while, but Andrew and I like to go shooting together. I have my concealed carry permit. So you know, don’t try to be a creepy stalker or anything.

I can fall asleep in about 3 minutes. If it takes me any where near 10 minutes to fall asleep (or heaven forbid, 20 minutes), I consider that “having a really hard time sleeping”. Also, I always make a noise (a hum/grunt noise) and/or have a full-body twitch when I’m falling asleep (right before I’m actually asleep). That’s how my husband knows I’m asleep and he thinks its funny. Sometimes making my noise and twitching wakes me up.

I have the worst poker face ever. I am so terrible at keeping a straight face when I need too.

I live in the same city where I grew up and I have no intentions of moving. I also went to college here. I don't get out much! I love where I live and I love being near my family.

Okay, your turn. I picked these completely randomly, however they are "newer" followers of mine (which means I am going down my Google followers list and seeing who else has a blog!):
1. Jeanette @ Journey to Health & Happiness
2. Jen @ Concrete and Coffee
3. Corrina @ Mama Needs to Run
4. Katherine @ Neon Blonde Runner
5. Candice @ I Have Run
6. Zaneta @ Runner's Luck
7. Lisa @ Early Morning Run
8. Jen @ Running with the girls
9. Michael @ Slowly Tri-ing
Okay - now blogger is being stupid and slow so I can't click on any more names right now. Seriously, if you want to play along, consider yourself tagged!


  1. That is so funny about you twitching or making a noise when you fall asleep. Love the you met your husband when you had on a Santa Suit. :)

  2. Holy macaroni! I typed a big long comment and Blogger got rid of it. URGH!

    Basically I think we'd get along great. I drive a Wrangler and have my concealed carry permit, too. Wee!

    Oh and why were you wearing a Santa outfit?

  3. Aw thanks for tagging me!!
    I am very similar how I fall asleep at the drop of a hat. Usually within 3 minutes...the only thing that messes with my sleep schedule a little is switching back and forth with nightshifts. Then it'll take more like 5 minutes to fall asleep haha!


Leave me some love!
