I'm an Honest Scrap

Thank you SO much to the incredibly gorgeous Pink Sass for the Honest Scrap award. You are missing out if you don't read her blog...not only is she so cute, but her posts are so fun and girly - just what I LOVE! :)

With this award, I'm supposed to list 10 honest things about myself. So, here goes....

1.) I've lived on both coasts and right smack in the middle within a span of 3 years. We've been in Kansas, California, Texas and Rhode Island. I always thought my favorite coast was west...but I think I'm more partial to east now. But, of course KANSAS will always have the #1 spot in my heart. There's NO place like home. :)

2). I subconsciously eat my food in a certain order. Let me give you an example of a Ruby-Style lunch. I start off with a veggie, usually carrots. Then, I eat my fruit: apple, clementine, banana etc. Then, I have some kind of side i.e. yogurt or cottage cheese. Next, I have my "main" portion, usually a sandwich.  Finally, I HAVE to finish every single meal with something sweet. I can't help it. My mind subconsciously "saves the best for last"!

3). I only drink from a straw. Just about everything. Water. Pop. Juice. Crystal Light. Most alcoholic beverages.

4). I might be slightly OCD when it comes to numbers. I never do anything on an even number. For example, I always set my alarm for 6:43 or 6:07 etc. Or, when I used to conduct training classes, I would give my group a break and tell them to come back at 9:37. Odd? Yes. I guess I just like that extra "3 minutes" to sleep.

5). I NEVER cross my legs. Seriously. When I was younger, I heard that if you crossed your legs a lot, you would get spider veins. I haven't crossed my legs ever since then. No joke.

6). I love to kiss my dogs' ears. This is a very weird habit that I simply cannot explain.

7). I can't eat toasted bread. It cuts my mouth! Especially the Quiznos bread...I can't eat it because afterwards it feels like Edward Scissorhands had a hay-day with the inside of my mouth.

8). I pass out...kind of frequently. I had several tests run, and it's really only low blood pressure/low blood sugar. The last time I passed out was when we lived in Dallas - in the middle of a RESTAURANT. Luckily, Mr. Ruby caught me. Oh, and even the thought of needles makes me pass out.

9). I never really get a good night's sleep. Ever since I was a kid, I had issues with sleeping. I have to have the perfect conditions: dark, noiseless, and kind of chilly. My parents always made fun of me and called my room "The Cave".

10). Being so honest was a bad idea. Completing these 10 facts made me realize how incredibly quirky I am. Hmm. Luckily I have a man who loves me no matter what! :)

Totally agree with you on the spider veins. I heard that a long time ago and never cross my legs now!

Allison said...

Oh my gosh I never heard that about spider veins! Guess who will not be crossing their legs from now on? :)

Mrs. Cup said...

I love this!! We are all quirky...don't worry! :)

Jules said...

So fun! Everyone has their quirks. I definitely eat in a certain order too and I forgot all about the spider vein thing until now. I remember hearing that from my aunt when I was about 10.

I'm #5 all the way too- I read it also when I was younger. Plus a lady doesn't cross a leg over a leg at the knee, a lady crosses her legs at the ankles!

kHm
