The Big 50

Well, I've seen this done on a few other blogs and I'm going to attempt it here. This is my 50th blog post (my, how time flies when you're having fun) and I'm going to tell you all 50 things about me. You may know them already, you may not, you might not care at all. But, for your reading pleasure, here they are:

1. I have the greatest job ever. Seriously, I meet some great people and I love watching them heal and go home.

2. Peppermint tea makes me happy. Really happy.

3. My new favorite online cartoon is Seriously, those little emo dudes are so cute.

4. I love being in love.

5. I want to travel. I have a goal to visit as many countries in the world as possible.

6. I am SO excited to be a mom. I see cute babies and little kids at the store and other places and they always make me smile.

7. Music makes the world go 'round. I truly believe this with all my heart.

8. I am completely addicted to shoes. I love them. "Clothes never look any good... food just makes me fatter... shoes always fit."

9. I am trying to quit drinking soda. So far, so good.

10. I have a think for polka dots. I think they are so flippin' cute.

11. I haven't seen my natural hair color since high school.

12. I think that every girl should get a bikini wax at least once in her life.

13. I believe in monthly pedicures. When my feet look and feel good, so do I.

14. Victoria's Secret makes the best bras ever. I won't wear anything else.

15. My favorite color is pink.

16. I think crocs are the most comfortable shoes ever... Ugly as sin, but so comfy.

17. I love to read. A lot.

18. I once had my belly button pierced. It was uncomfortable to wear denim.

19. I have a strange affinity for station wagons. I love 'em.

20. I think it's time for dinner.

21. I did some intense shopping today. It freaked me out a little.

22. Ikea is amazing. If you haven't been you need to go.

23. I've lost 30 pounds in the last 6 months. I've got about 30 more to go.

24. I check out peoples' veins in the grocery store. It's a nurse thing.

25. I have the greatest family every. Seriously. They're the best.

26. I don't like real diamonds. I think it's ridiculous to pay that amount of money for a rock.

27. Doctors annoy me.

28. I would really like to be asleep right now.

29. I think spooning is fantastic. Everyone should experience it regularly.

30. My favorite food is potatoes. I love those little buggers.

31. I've only ever had one patient die on me. It was a very spiritual experience.

32. I like treasure hunting at the D.I.

33. I have a weird thing about people touching my neck. It makes me all shivery.

34. I believe that holding hands is one of the fastest ways to feel connected to someone.

35. If I had a super power I'd want to be able to fly. Think of the money you'd save!

36. I'm a jean snob. I'll only wear Gap.

37. I'm a list-maker. I have all kinds of lists.

38. Most of my lists live in a Jessica Rabbit journal.

39. I think animal prints are hot.

40. Tomatoes make me gag. It's a texture thing.

41. I love it when my boyfriend calls me Babe.

42. I have expensive taste but bargain shopping has been bred into me. I love finding a good deal.

43. The next car I buy will probably be a Subaru.

44. I bruise easily.

45. I love candid photography. People make the best faces when they think no one's looking.

46. I won't take any drug stronger than ibuprofen. I hate feeling out of control, even just a little bit.

47. I text Google on a regular basis.

48. I can't go a whole day without talking to Steve.

49. My legally blind coworker is sitting next to me and has no idea I'm writing about him. He also rides a motorcycle which scares the hell out of me. Blind people should not ride motorcycles.

50. I need a haircut.

Phew, I did it. It only took me 3 hours and many, many breaks in the middle, but I listed 50 useless things about myself. Hooray!

Hope all is well with everyone. Life is good here.

That was awesome! I love these things. Surprisingly, I did not know most of that stuff. I agree with most of it though. The polka dots, totally dig 'em. Really good post.

Okay Selkie... I'm willing to bet that when you birth your first adorable child you'll be wanting something stronger than ibuprofen!!! Good list!!
