What you may not know about me . . .

Thanks to Katrina Lantz for giving this blog award to me.

Since I'm a very obedient person and adhere to all rules (a-hem) I will do what all who post this award must do; Post 15 things that you probably don't know about me.

1) I study 2 disciplines of martial arts; Taekwondo and Hapkido

2) I don't mind going to the movies by myself. I actually kind of like it when I feel like a need an "escape"

3) I have broken both of my legs and both of my arms, but not at the same time. This last broken ankle was the clincher. I'd really like to stop breaking bones now.

4) In 7th grade, my English teacher accused me of plagiarizing a poem that I had written for an assignment. (It was called Lead Foot Granny) I was so embarrassed that I didn't keep it. In hindsight, I wish I had.

5) When I was 16 I got to travel through France for a month with my French group.

6) My husband and I only knew each other for one week before we started talking about getting married. I was only 21 when we got married. The odds were against us, but we'll be celebrating year 18 this May.

7) I had some unusual pets as a kid such as; a turtle, an iguana and hermit crabs

8) I love turkey bologna.

9) My favorite Starbucks drink is a skinny vanilla latte.

10) I was hit by a car when I was 5 years old (see #3) with a broken arm, leg and my face split open, I was lucky I survived.

11) I was a gymnast and a figure skater when I was younger

12) I went to the same church with Clay Aiken a year before he went on American Idol. My jaw dropped the first time I heard him sing a solo from the stage.

13) I once went to a hard-core biker wedding. I went dressed in shorts and still felt over dressed.

14) I once had a friend who had a guinea pig that would do back flips after it ate broccoli.

15) I have a tattoo.

Now I'm supposed to tag people. The rules say it should be 15 people, but honestly by this point it's hard to find bloggers who haven't already had this award given to them. I'll just tag some people and not worry about how many it ends up being. I mean, there aren't any blogging award police out there, is there?

I am tagging:

Kelly Pollark, Rena Jones, Angela Ackerman, Bish Denham, MG Higgins, Cynthia Chapman Willis. Also, if I didn't post your name but you want to participate then consider yourself tagged!


Angela Ackerman said...

Oh I winced when I saw all of those broken bones lsited. I hope your ankle is doing better!

Thanks for the tag--you're the best!

Thanks Angela!

MG Higgins said...

Thanks, Christy! What fun and interesting tidbits about you. Now I'm craving a skinny vanilla latte. :)

Katrina L. Lantz said...

Wow. I love learning new things about my blog buddies. Hapkido sounds really cool! Is it similar to Jiu Jitsu? And figure skating! That's hard. You, my friend, are very talented.

I'm off to check out the other award winners' blogs.

Happy Monday!

C.R. Evers said...

HI MG! I'm craving a vanilla latte right now too!

Thanks Katrina! Hapkido does have similarities to Jiu Jitsu. the techniques are a lot more practical for use if a real life self defense was needed as opposed to Taekwondo and Karate.

Kelly said...

Thanks for the award, Christy!
And ouch on your broken bones! No more, ya hear?! Great learning more about you.
I also have one (hidden) tattoo and I had hermit crabs too!

What a fun list!!

My husband and I got married exactly one year to the day after we met. And we were talking marriage after a week, too! I was 22 when we tied the knot and now we're celebrating 20 years of marriage :)

And I love Clay Aiken!

Anna Staniszewski said...

Ha, I love #14! I feel like there's a picture book idea there somewhere... :-)

Cynthia Chapman Willis said...

Many thanks for the award, Christy! What fun! Love the fifteen bits of info. Now it's my turn. Hmmmm.

C.R. Evers said...

Thanks for stopping by guys! :0)

Rena said...

Thanks! And what an interesting list, especially about the guinea pig.

C.R. Evers said...

yep, that guinea pig was pretty entertaining.

Tara said...

Hmm. We have some odd things in common. Hubby asked me to marry him after 3 months. I was 21 when we got married and it will be 18 years in June. I was also a figure skater through my teens :-)

Nice to meet you.
