A Few Things About Me – 30 Days of Lists

So here’s list # 1 on the 30 days of lists that was supposed to start on March 1st.  I admit that I’m a little bit behind, but I’m hoping to catch up this weekend.  In honor of the #30, there are 30 items on this first list.

  1. When I think of things about me I immediately think of the other people who are an integral part of my life…family, friends, pets, etc.
  2. I’m a wife of 33 years to my wonderful husband, Terry.
  3. I’m so thankful that God brought him into my life.  He’s pretty amazing for putting up with me all these years.
  4. I’m a mother of a daughter (Amy), a son (Kevin) and a son-in-law (Andrew).
  5. I’m so proud of all three of them.  I could brag on them all day long.
  6. I wish I could see them more often.
  7. I love going to Disneyland and California Adventure. (That’s where the photo was taken.)
  8. I have a 20 year old cat named Shredder.  (she’s not in the family photo since she didn’t come to California Adventure with us.)
  9. Just about me…  I love to take photos – I consider myself a tourist of life.
  10. I cry very easily, mostly about happy things…not sure why – just the way God made me, I guess.
  11. I love God and the am constantly amazed by how much he loves me, in spite of what I do that must break his heart.
  12. I wish I had more of a green thumb so I could bring more of God’s creation into my home and yard.
  13. I enjoy interior decorating.
  14. I never have enough time to do all the fun and creative things that I’d like to do.
  15. I love unique architecture.
  16. I love to travel.
  17. I have an idea for a travel related blog, now I just need to find the time to work on it.
  18. I live in Phoenix, AZ.
  19. I miss having all four seasons.
  20. I lived in a very small town in northern Ohio until I was almost 16.
  21. I lived in Southern California for 18 years.
  22. I’m learning to love the beauty of the desert.
  23. I work 4 days a week helping several non-profit organizations.
  24. I tear interesting pages out my magazines when I find something that I want to refer back to again. (recipes, decorating ideas, gardening tips, restaurants, web sites, etc.)
  25. I was in the gifted program in high school (that was a blast) and graduated a semester early.  woohoo!
  26. I’m a chocolate snob.
  27. My favorite is Lindt Intense Orange Dark Chocolate bars.  Just buy me a case of it and I’d be happy as a clam.
  28. My absolute favorite food is Alaskan King Crab.  Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!  That (and maybe a good steak) would be part of my last meal, if I had to choose one.
  29. I love watching live musical theater and live musicians.
  30. I love hearing foreign accents and finding out where they’re from.

Hey!  Check this out.  A fellow blogger at R.S.V.P Responding to Life that connected with me through Amy’s blog, just put up a post with some responses to my list above.  Isn’t that just so sweet of her?  She’s a dear woman from Pennsylvania.  I love the internet!  Our world is growing smaller every day.
