2. I have one brother, who is 14 years older than I am, and we are pretty much polar opposites. But, along with my husband and my dad, one of the three greatest guys I know.
3. Jason and I have been married for almost four years. He is, hands down, the nicest guy I have ever met.
4. And...my dad is probably the most hard-working...and the biggest coffee drinker. I inherited my coffee addiction from him.
5. Jason and I really, really like living in Fort Worth.
6. But my asthma and allergies have been plaguing me since we moved here. I think that's the only thing we don't like about this area, though.
7. Our favorite restaurant here is Chapps. Their cajun chicken sandwich makes me melt. It's my second favorite food, next to pineapple pizza, which I could have for supper every night except on the nights we eat at Chapps.
8. I spoil my dog (Fred), I buy him cute clothes, I like him better than I like most children, and I am OK with all of that. (I also realize that makes me somewhat peculiar. Oh well.)
9. I majored in journalism at the University of Alabama, and I went on to work in journalism in the print, television, radio AND Internet sectors. But I liked public radio the best.
10. I still listen to NPR every day, and I've gotten so comfortable with it that I can no longer stand listening to or watching any other news source for more than about five minutes.
11. I got my Master’s in Library and Information Studies. This program was in the College of Communication and Information Sciences, and I always get confused about which was Studies and which was Sciences.
12. I was always much more "conservative" than my classmates in both journalism and library school, but I think I'm more "liberal" than most people at Southwestern. Go figure.
13. I became a Christian when I was 10 years old, but I recommitted my life to Christ when I was 24. These decisions are equally big to me.
14. I grew up in the Church of Christ, but now I attend a Baptist church. This is a small difference to most of the world, but it was a huge difference to my family.
15. I rarely cry.
16. According to Myers-Briggs, I am an ISTJ. My husband and I are semi-obsessed with guessing personality types.
17. I still have (and use) my first typewriter. But I also really like my iPod and Jason's Macbook.
18. I have been playing the piano since I was seven years old.
19. I love just about every kind of music.
20. I am a really heavy sleeper, and I am irritatingly perky in the mornings. Probably from all that deep sleep. :)
21. I have scars all over the place from when I was an accident-prone kid. The most notable is the piece of lead still stuck in my knee from the pencil I inadvertently jabbed in there. I'm still pretty accident-prone as an adult. Some people call this klutzy. ha
22. I started reading when I was three years old, and I haven’t really stopped since.
23. I was a head taller than every other kid in my class until about the 8th grade. Then they all started growing, and I stopped…at almost 5’3”…where I remain today. I really, really wish I was tall. Like basketball player tall. My husband says my height is perfect. See? Seriously--nicest guy ever.
24. I wish my life looked more like Christ’s.
25. When I really think about what His life looked like and the changes I would have to make, it scares me to death. Luckily, He's not through working on me yet. :)
