I've been writing a lot about the girls, my family, crafting and decorating. I haven't written too much about myself though. So, here are twenty-five things about me.
1. I have two younger brothers. When I was little, I really wanted a little sister. Now, I have two sisters-in-law.
2. If I won a million dollars, I would pay off my student loans, and buy a bigger house.
3. If I had a lot of money, I would be one of those crazy people who redecorates their houses every year. This is fed by my pinterest addiction.
4. My first bachelor's degree is in advertising. My second is in nursing. I am so happy that I went back to school.
5. If I could, I would live on diet coke, baked lays and goldfish crackers.
6. When I was pregnant with Maggie, I craved nachos and squirt. When I was pregnant with Lucy, it was chocolate milk and brown sugar pop tarts.
7. I was born with one kidney.
8. I have always wanted four kids, two girls and two boys. If my next baby is a girl, I am not sure if we will try for number four.
9. My house is 95 years old. We are probably only the 3rd owners. (the people who lived here before us lived here for 67 years)
10. I am obsessed with Ikea. We remodeled our kitchen with Ikea this spring and I can't wait to go back.
11. I have to limit myself to one trip to Target a week or I will be broke in no time.
12. Planning and cooking dinner is the most frustrating part of my day. I wish I could hire a personal chef.
13. I love old houses. I would love to buy an old Victorian someday.
14. I am allergic to dogs. This makes my husband really sad.
15. My fifth wedding anniversary is coming up in about six weeks.
16. I have lived in two large cities and one small town, but I have never lived in a suburb (and I don't plan to). I am a city girl.
17. I feel like a magician when I get both girls to take a good nap together in the same room.
18. I hate to cook but I love to bake.
19. I don't like to run but when I was running regularly I was in the best shape of my life. Then I got pregnant.
20. One of my biggest fears is that I will die young and the girls won't remember me.
21. I always wanted to move to Boston.
22. I worked as a nanny for three years. It was one of my favorite jobs.
23. I became much less judgemental at other people's weddings once I had my own.
24. I have twenty-six first cousins.
25. We went to Italy on our honeymoon. Best decision ever.
