25 Things...

I think I may have been tagged about 25 times to do this 25 things about me business. So finally,  after much procrastination and delay, here you go:

1.) I am the oldest of three kids, and I have two brothers. I used to want a sister so badly, but now I'm glad I am the only girl. :-)
2.) I love getting flowers. They make me happy
3.) I love my birthday, and I celebrate the whole month. I also celebrate my half-birthday!
4.) I love being out of my twenties, and into my thirties!
5.) I love all things holiday, and celebrate them to the fullest extent I can.
6.) I met my husband at a wedding, Married him two years later (after dating long distance), and have been happily married to him for over eight years. I am grateful for his continual love in spite of the fact that I am an ocd control freak :-).
7.) I love being an auntie, and I have a beautiful niece and nephew.
8.) I have wanted to adopt babies since I was in high school, and my Pastor's family adopted two children from Cambodia. Seeing their love and heart for those children started a desire in me to be an adoptive mom.
9.) I have a heart for orphans, and would secretly like to start my own adoption agency.
10.) I (and my husband:-)) am in the process of adopting two children internationally (and simultaneously). My first daughter will be from Taiwan, and my second daughter will be from China. I can't wait to bring them home!
11.) I really enjoy cleaning my house, OCD about it, really, and I look forward to it every time.
12.) I enjoy shooting guns, it gives me a perverse sense of enjoyment.
13.) I would secretly love to get a tattoo. My tattoo of choice is the chinese character for the word "hope"
14.) I love the beach, but have a serious primal fear of the ocean. Too many living things, too many unknowns, too much poop (everything poops there).
15.) I have absolutely no tolerance for alcohol. One marguerita, and I'm pretty much wasted.
16.) I didn't eat red meat before I married my husband, now I am no longer freaked out by it.
17.) I love Chipotle (the restaurant) more than any other food. I think about it, plan for it, really, I could eat it every day, and be the happiest girl.
18.)Even though I grew up in Montana, I cannot STAND the cold. I loathe it with all of my being, and I firmly believe that the only place for snow is Christmas day.
19.) My husband is my absolute best friend! I am so ridiculously crazy about him, I can hardly stand it. My life is everything I could have hoped for and more because of who we are together.
20.) I enjoy cooking, but not by myself. And I derive a ridiculous amount of joy from watching other people cook for me, especially my husband.
21.) My father, brothers, and sister-in-law are all military veterans.
22.) I love action movies. I have to be in the mood to watch a romance or comedy, but I am always up for gratuitous violence.
23.) I randomly think of quotes from "Friends" to cheer myself up regularly.
24.) I love video games, and have two personal gaming systems (a psp, and a mini nintendo gameboy).
25.) My myers-briggs profile is ESTJ. Part of my personality profile reads: Tradition is important to the ESTJ. Holidays, birthdays and other annual celebrations are remembered and observed often religiously by this type. The ESTJ is outspoken, a person of principles, which are readily expressed. The ESTJ is not afraid to stand up for what she believes is right even in the face of overwhelming odds. ESTJs are able to make the tough calls. Ha! I love that!!

I love this! Thanks so much for posting! Your husband is super-lucky to have a wife who still dotes on him like this after 8 years, and even luckier to have a wife who loves to clean house! Wish I had a little more of the latter in me. :-)
