30 factoids!

Hello lovelies,
Today, I am going to do something a little different. I am following the lovely Danielle over at Sometimes Sweet and the beautiful Amanda from Hello Pretty Eyes in posting 30 facts about myself. Some of these facts may be known by some of you, but I hope that most are unknown.
However, before I begin I need to thank Katie the beautiful face behind Love Is Everywhere for awarding me with a lovely award. Thank you gorgeous!

Let's begin...

1. For some odd reason my dad wanted 2 little French girls so he named my sister, Dominique and myself Danielle, even though we are half Irish and half German. My mom claims that she had no idea my dad was picking those names and that she was still under general anesthetic while my dad named us. haha.

2. My sister and I had our own language until we were like 6 or 7. Looking back now, it was just a bunch of gibberish.

3. I didn't have my first kiss until I was 18 and it was with a boy who turned out to be a huge jerk.

4. My sister and I are complete opposites and used to fight all the time, but now that we are apart we have become the best of friends.

5. I HATE creepy crawly things. If I find one in my house I freak out and feel like I have them crawling all over me.

6. When I was younger, I used to have a reoccurring dream of my childhood cat turning into a vicious cat and killed my whole family while I tried to hide from it and we were always on a boat. Haha. We never owned a boat and my cat was one of the sweetest cats ever. You would think that I would be scared to death of cats now, but I'm not! I love them.

7.  I have been bit by a dog. BUT, it was all for training. I got into a huge bite suit and ran away from my dad and then the dog attacked and pulled me down to the ground and he continued to pull me across the grass. Then, I put on a bite sleeve and took a couple of bites like that. I was kind of afraid of my dog for a while after that. (My dad is one of the K-9 officers for our city police department.)

8. I am still afraid of the dark and I am afraid of open closets and bedroom doors.

9. I met my husband on myspace.

10. I get car sick especially if I am in the backseat.

11. My husband and I had 2 weddings. One in my hometown and one in his hometown of Guadalajara.

12. I love to sing and I am pretty good at it, but i won't sing for you or anyone else; those days are over. I only sing in the shower and in the car.

13. When we got married, my husband sang to me at our reception. It was pretty much one of the sweetest things that anyone has ever done for me.

14. I have a work persona and a me persona. If I am at work I feel like I can talk to anyone about anything, but outside of work I am very shy until you get to know me.

15.  I was in the choir all through school and I was the youngest member of my church's choir. ( I was 13 and the rest were 40+.)

16. I love to travel and miss going on spontaneous road trips.

17.  All through school I wanted to be a prosecuting attorney, but then when it came to learning about laws I realized that it wasn't for me. (It was too boring for me.)

18. I have never had a cavity or a broken bone.

19. I cry when I get angry.

20. I have lived in Charolette, NC; Silver Springs, MD; Pittsburgh, PA; and St. George, UT; all within 2 years.

21. If I find something at the store that I want i will carry it around with me and then latter put it back. I am very bad about being spontaneous when it comes to shopping.

22. I am the most indecisive person ever. Don't ask me what I want for dinner because I cannot tell you.

23. I loved to write research papers in college. I never admitted it then, but looking back now its something I miss.

24.  I don't like to be alone. I believe its because I always had my sister around growing up.

25. I have a temper and I am a bit spoiled. (It is all my hubby's fault.)

26. I still swoon over the Backstreet Boys. (but I'm not into their new stuff at all.)

27. I still have a reoccurring dream that I go to school without any shoes or socks on and now it progresses to me losing my pants. (Very strange, I know.)

28. My favorite dreams are the ones where I wake up laughing.

29. I do believe that zombies can happen one day.

30. I absolutely love all of you and I look forward to hearing from each of you!

I hope that each and every single one of you have a fabulous day!!<3

I think being apart from a sister will make you closer. My sister and I are best friends...we see each other once a year. We used to battle hard when we were young.

I don't think I want a dog to bite me...suit or not!

I loved reading about you and getting to know you better! I totally have a work persona too. I am way more outgoing at work, when I am home or out I am totally shy and withdrawn. I can't believe how much you have moved in 2 years that sucks!I moved like 6 times in the last 2 years, twice back to the same place though. All my houses were like within 10 miles apart so it wasn't that bad. I couldn't even imagine moving cross country ugh! I hope you have a fabulous day love!

Loved this post! I had crawly things as well! If I see one at my house, someone else has to remove it, even if it's the tiniest thing ever! And then I get that itchy feeling all over my body.

My first kiss ended up being with a boy who was a big jerkface too. What a waste.

Is your lie that you got kicked out of Bible school?

Also I am so afraid of the dark.

Bonnie said...

30 facts? I don't even think I could come up with 30 facts about myself.
That's a lie. I could.
I love talking about myself. mememememememe.

My first kiss was a 16, and I regret it. He was an asshole. He was also my first boyfriend. He was still an asshole, then.
Backset carsickness? Let's be best friends.
Boy bands are underrated these days.

We had very similar reoccurring dream growing up. A cheetah would run down the road and turn into a grizzly bear and slaughter my family. Can't tell you how many times I had that dream!
