25 Random Things-Imported from FB

Keep checking in to see Chris' list....He doesn't know it yet but I tagged him to do this as well!

1. My greatest fear is going blind.....and I have no idea why.

2. When I met my husband in 2002 he told me I was too young for him.....HA!

3. I want to own a vineyard someday and make my own wine!

4. I speak fluent Spanish and I've been to Mexico 8 times. One of the times I camped in a tent in the dirt. There were tarantulas in our tent one night when we went to bed EEK!

5. I own the entire DVD series of I Love Lucy and watched every episode within 2 months. I still watch random episodes when I have nothing else to do.

6. Chris and I call each other Hony. It comes from a graham cracker made by nabisco sold only in Mexico and Puerto Rico that I love called Hony Bran... weird...I know!

7. I can read a 600 page book in a day.

8. My grandpa has 23 grandkids and 41 great grandkids and 1 great-great grandkid. I have a BIG family.

9. I have never had a car payment!

10. I hate soda. All of it.

11. I am graduating from nursing school in June!!!!!!!!!!!!

12. My favorite color is yellow.

13. I have 2 chihuahuas sleeping on my lap while I'm writing this :)

14. I grew an inch taller after I got married. Late bloomer I suppose :)

15. I sleepwalk and talk in my sleep.

16. I've moved 14 times. 13 of those times were before I was 11.

17. I've been known to skip church to watch football. Bad I know.

18. I live an hour and a half from the Oregon coast but the last beach I visited was in Malibu, CA. I think the last time we went to an Oregon beach was almost 2 years ago.

19. I like to go fishing. But only with my brother, he says I'm good luck!

20. My favorite animal is a penguin.

21. I love going to the dentist. I think it is relaxing...must be the memory foam chairs.

22. I sanitize EVERYTHING. Tray tables on airplanes, my notebooks, doorknobs, tables at coffee shops and school, my cell phone. I always have alcohol swabs in my purse.....I have issues but at least I don't get sick!

23. I am really dreading working the night shift when I first start as a nurse.

24. I've worn a $325 pair of shoes with a dress from Target that cost about $10...but they say one quality item makes everything else look better!

25. I am joyful-and not just when things seem picture perfect- always, because I know that God is in control of my life. It's a beautiful surrender and there is NO better loss than to lose myself in Him. Jeremiah 29v11 For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Wow! Gutsy move, Sunshine. Thank you for being so transparent. Just one more quality that makes you so wonderfully special.

I learned a lot more about you. Always wondered where Hony came from; but would never ask.

I especially loved your last insight. What a remarkable strength of faith you have at young age. To be joyful in ALL situations because your faith is in The Lord. Your parents, you and the Spirit did a great work in you. I take great joy in watching His plans unfolding in your life.

Thank you for your gift of sharing yourself with us. It started my day with a big smile.

Hi Trista! I found your blog from a comment on Sarah's blog--I didn't even know you had one! I loved reading these fun facts about you--especially the shoes and dress one! I hope you and Chris are doing really well and congrats on graduating so soon!

Yay I love Lucy. Whenever we were sick growing up, my mom would rent I Love Lucy movies for us. For Christmas, my parents got us each a different season. I also want to say, that I was checking facebook and your blog with your exciting news. I thought it had to be a joke of some sort, but was curious to find out what it was. You're puppy looks so sweet!
