10 things you don't have time to read...

1. I think God tests my patients every day. Most days I fail the tests.However I pray that he never stops testing me, because one of these days I'm going to get it right.

2. I hate Wal-Mart. It gives me anxiety every time I go into that store. To much going on, and to many people walking around in their pj's... and WHY are there always 30 check out lanes, but only 4 are open and 2 out of the 4 are self check out lanes...WHY??

3. I don't like to cuddle...there I said it. I can only stand it for about 5 minutes, then I get hot and claustrophobic.

4. I believe that God made one perfect child, and that every mother has him. (or in my case her.)

5. I hate milk, and to make myself sound more interesting I say its because I'm lactose intolerant, even though I don't actually know if I am. I still love chocolate milk though...

6. I am overly self conscious and shy. I tend to be my own worst enemy and I envy people who have that "I am who I am" attitude.

7. I feel like advertising, and just society in general has made people (myself included) think they need more than they actually do. Bigger houses, fancier cars etc.. However moving away from family and friends has really put what is actually important in life into perspective for me. Not saying that I am now living a simplistic life, but I am more aware.

8. I have a real live problem/addiction with social media. You will always find me attached to my phone, checking my emails and facebook every chance I get. I am trying to work on cutting it back a little. Besides it will seem like I have way more emails, and comments on my blog and facebook if I just wait longer to check them ;)

9. Sometimes I think the only reason I might want another baby is because I love naming them.. 

10.  I have no happy-medium when it comes to sweets. If they are in my house, no matter how many times I convince myself that I'm not eating them, I do... No matter how many times I say that I am just having one... I have 3. So I try not to keep them in my house at all because I simply have no self control when it comes to chocolate chip cookies.

  1. Love it! I hate Walmart too but for other reasons. And yes, we all have the perfect kid :)

  2. Hahah I keep a name list, too! I swear I'm going to have to become a crazy old cat lady because I have so many names lined up and I'm all done having kids. My husband wants to start beekeeping and he jokes that I should just name all the bees. Thanks for the post!

    Love Sarah
