25 Things About Wendy

May 19, 2011

I swear the only reason I signed up for Facebook is to share 25 things about myself.  Remember when that list was all the rage?  Well, that was about two-and-a-half years ago (yes, I was slow to jump of the FB train).


Anyway, I like lists.  I like talking about myself (you know you do too).  And I thought I’d revisit my list to see if it was still accurate.   




1. I really, really like the smell of fresh cut grass. It reminds me of my dad.

2. I don’t understand why people wear skinny jeans. They simply aren’t flattering, unless you are stick thin, then it’s ok – and only on women.

3. My dog snores louder than my husband. 

4. I absolutely hate the show “I Love Lucy.”

5. I secretly love watching football but refuse to let my husband know he’s turned me into a total convert. 

6. I like to play fantasy football too. I came in second place two years in a row!
(this one not so much anymore)

7. I’m obsessed with buying organic fruit and veggies.
(when I have the time…and “obsessed,” really?)

8. I still don’t know all of the multiplication table. 8 times 7? No idea. Need a calculator or count on my fingers!
(my current guess: 52)

9. I could drink a Starbucks coffee everyday. Grande Pike, room for cream. So good. (still love this drink but instead order a tall Pike in a grande cup so I don’t have to dump out as much coffee to make more room for cream)

10. I could also eat a box of Lemonheads everyday too…but I don’t.
(I can’t even remember the last time I ate Lemonheads!)

11. Every time I’m at Hoag Hospital I wash my hands because the soap smell reminds me of when my daughter was born. 
(I also filled up a travel bottle size of soap one time so I could use it at home)
 12. I watch the absolute worst of the worst reality tv.
(did you catch the season premiere of Real Housewives of NJ?  Loved!)

13. I clean my house after the cleaning people come because they don’t do a good enough job and I’m too chicken to fire them.
(I fired them!)

14. It absolutely kills me to hear my baby cry.

15. I miss Howard Stern on regular radio.
(I got the Sirius Satellite now but still have to listen sans toddler – BABA BOOEY!)
 16. I love staying in hotels.

17. I collect aprons.

18. I like to think about re-decorating my friend’s houses before falling asleep at night. 

19. I get tongue twisted every time I order an “Arnold Palmer.”

20. I’m not at all spontaneous. 
(God, I wish I was.)

21. I think everyone should send a thank you card for a gift received.

22. I prefer a cake donut over the other ones.

23. I love to watch Lockup on MSNBC.
(I haven’t watched in a very long time because I’m consumed with Extreme Couponing now)

24. I’ve never been a big fan of Christmas. But love Halloween, 4th of July and Valentine’s Day.

25. Misspelled words drive me nuts! 
(Even more, I hate when people find my misspelled words)

OMG- The Arnold Palmer… that is so funny. We drink them all the time here (Hubs' mom always has unsweetened iced tea and lemonade in the fridge) and I have to call them "Robert Palmers" because I get too tongue tied :)

Do you get all dressed up in a skin-tight dress and slick your hair back and sing about how "Simply Irresistible" lemonade and iced tea are together?
