27 Fun Facts About Me

I am celebrating my birthday this week…and I thought it would be fun to let you know a few silly things about me. Since this is my 27th birthday, welcome to 27 Facts about Me.

1. I love bread and butter – I could probably consume for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night snack!
2. I’ve had braces – twice on the bottom due to a bucket smashed into my mouth during a water fight.
3. As a toddler, I stole my older brother’s candy and hid behind the bed to eat it all secretly (My dad said I was the most rebellious child but then grew up to become the snuggly and easier young adult…so there’s hope).
4. My worst household chore is keeping the dishes clean.
5. My favorite color is red.
6. My favorite candy is Andes mints. Send me a box and I’ll be your friend forever.
7. My favorite ice cream is anything cheesecake flavored. Strawberry cheesecake, blackberry cheesecake…you name it.
8. I love books – I might be considered a bookoholic.
9. My favorite exercise is biking…I am currently in love with my new bike (my birthday present!)
10. I love relaxing at the beach (its my favorite spot!)
11. I have a strange fascination with roller coasters, jumping off 100 ft water falls and doing other crazy things.
12. I’ve been to Cambodia, Russia, Dominican Republic & the Philippines on various mission trips – where I’ve also consumed a fried tarantula, and a raw baby duck in its egg – they are delicacies in SE Asia.
13. I love organizing and de-cluttering – I get a strange high!
14. I’ve never liked coffee or any alcoholic beverage (I’ve just recently started enjoying a sip of IPA beer here and there).
15. I’ve traveled around the United States camping on two separate occasions as a child.
16. I never received a college degree…but I love to learn and will never stop till the day I die.
17. I have a black thumb (as opposed to a green thumb when it comes to gardening). Things die at my touch.
18. I was homeschooled through high school and I’m not socially awkward (at least I think…;).
19. I am the oldest girl of 8 children…I have 3 sisters, 4 brothers, 4 sister-in-laws, 7 brother-in-laws, and 8 (going on 9) nieces and nephews. I’m pretty blessed!
20. I have insecurity problems.
21. I never had a best friend as a child. In fact I had few friends at all until my adulthood.
22. I am a certified piano instructor.
23. I love writing and want to write a book someday, Lord willing.
24. I was born and raised in one house and never moved until I got married.
25. I love being out in nature and treasuring Gods creation…Hiking is very special to me.
26. I never learned to do my own makeup till I was 20! In fact, I never wore any before then…
27. I love to laugh and I can laugh REALLY loud.
28…one to grow on…I’ve never broken a bone in my body!
I’d love to hear a few fun facts about you too! Please share!
