Qrazy Quirks

Ok, so I've been tagged. Thanks Gina!

* Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours.

* Tag 6 fellow bloggers by linking them.

* Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger's blogs letting them know they've been tagged.

1. I absolutely hate when the seam in my socks isn't straight (at this point most of you are probably thinking.."what seam in socks?" Trust me, there is a seam in socks. It's located at the top of the socks and runs across your toes. For some reason the seam is constantly driving me crazy, and if it's not just right, I take my shoes off and try again and again until it is.)

2. I notice everything. If we have hung out recently (or in junior high), I could probably tell you what you were wearing and remember even small details in a conversation we had (this has somewhat faded since being pregnant, but still there for the most part).

3. I have an obsession with plucking eyebrows and definitely over pluck mine (I am working on that).

4. I HATE ironing. I would rather clean a bathroom anyday than do ironing. At least I feel like I get the bathroom cleaner than when I started...when I iron I am pretty sure I iron wrinkles in :(

5. I don't like anyones feet to touch me. I tend to think feet are gross. Even if they are clean and manicured well, I just don't like feet touching me.

6. For being someone who claims to "notice everything", I seem to tell the same stories over and over again. In junior high, my friends and I played true colors and a question came up about who repeats their stories and I received every single vote...not even kidding. I was so embarassed for like a month I would always start out stories with "I am not sure if I have told you this or not, but..."

Some of these were kind of dumb, but that's all I could come up with...(Weird I know, there are a lot I just couldn't think of any better ones).

Amen Gina

My cute neighbor Gina Catenzaro totally inspires me. She posted an eye opening and inspiring blog about putting away Mrs. Jones. She talked about how easy it is to get caught up in the unimportant things in life...I think we can all attest to that. Zacc and I constantly are comparing ourselves to our neighbors and trying to keep up. We both drive cars that are over a decade old and have quite a bit of character to them. The mazda's windshield wipers are so broken that when you turn them on high, they actually leave the windshield, wrap around and hit the driver's side's loads of fun to drive in a rain storm, but both of our cars are paid for and I need to do a better job of remembering that's what is important.

Zacc and I both feel stupid when we see the Darling's and we are both wearing hand-me-downs from Katie and Stephenson (I don't know why...their hand-me-downs are still way better than anything we have). To be honest, I love Katie's hand-me-downs, I just wonder if it's weird for her to see me wearing them.

I tend to be a slow learner and have to learn most lessons several times before they finally set in. Often times it feels like two steps forward and one step back. I guess we just need to always try our best and then cut ourselves some slack when we fail. So Amen Gina, here is to a more fulfilling and honest life.
