25 things

I've been tagged on this on Facebook a couple of times... and decided to post my reply here. You're supposed to write 25 random facts, goals, habits, etc., about yourself and then 5 or more people to do the same.

I tag, Julie over at coolmomguide, Heather at ItSpewsForth, Jennifer, Amy, and Ryan at cooldadcentral.
25 things about me

1. My first car was a VW Beetle. My brother wrecked it for me.... so I never actually got to drive it! I had a sweet personalized tag for it that said "SARAH2-2" because I once took ballet... I guess that was payback enough for his wrecking it. He had to drive it with that tag on it.

2. I started working a 'real' job as soon as I was of legal age, prior to that I babysat some children that went to our church, or worked little odd jobs at the church office, or for a local business office with filing or key entry. I never felt like my parents were mean for requiring that I work in order to pay for gas, etc., for the car I drove (and also helped pay for!)...

3. I've only had 4 jobs in my life (and have been working since 15.5 legally - that was when 'work permits' were issued!), and worked at each place for no less then 2 years. The longest employment was 8 years, and I still work for them.... just from home, independently.

4. When I was little, I wanted to be Wonder Woman. Somedays, I still do.

5. Growing up I was a Prissy Tom Boy.. I say that because I'd play chicken w/ my brothers on REAL motorcycles... and I had a hard time being the chicken. I climbed trees, shot bb guns, and had no problems at all keeping up with the big boys.... but I did tend to love my dolls, cabbage patch kids, and ballet slippers. I guess it was a good mix.

6. I have never been overseas - but want so bad to go to Ireland, England, and Greece. Maybe someday.

7. I love Capn Crunch... and Im not ashamed.

8. The first car I 'financed' was a red Geo Storm. And I rocked it. HA.

9. I was named after Hall&Oates Smile Sarah... most people who know my family think there was some deep biblical meaning behind my name. But really, it was all about Hall&Oates.

10. I am a preachers kid (number 9 makes more sense now, right?)

11. I know more about automobiles then the average man.... not bragging, it's just true. I work for Ford and Toyota, and once worked for Goodyear - and it's sortof a prerequisite. I do administrative work and it requires my being familiar...

12. I'm quite frugal - most wouldn't know it but it's so... just ask Julie, and Jennifer....and my husband. HA.

13. I like pimento cheese.

14. I also like dipping Wendy's fries in a Wendys Jr. Frosty.... HA - the inner child in me will live FOREVER.

15. I didn't weigh over 100 pounds until after I turned 23, not sure why - genetics, metabolism, etc. I tried my best to gain weight, and never could... sometime around 23 my metabolism changed!

16. I had chicken pox twice, and the 2nd time was 2 weeks before my Junior prom. That rocked. Thank goodness for Glamour Shots makeup!

17. I didn't go to my Senior Prom - I went to the beach with friends instead.

18. I almost became a widow at 29. A miracle happened, and my husband survived a massive heart attack and triple bypass surgery - 5 short months later we had another miracle to be thankful for - we were pregnant!

19. I'm living proof that the .01% chance of becoming pregnant while on birth control is not a lie. (see #18)

20. When I was growing up, I wanted to be a Veterinarian.

21. My vision is so poor that if I'm not wearing my contacts, in order to read something, it LITERALLY has to be pressed to my nose to read it. No Joke. My contacts prescription is -8.50 and my glasses are so thick AFTER the super thin lens option that I still get wise cracks like 'you could burn ants with those things'...

22. I love funnel cakes. I haven't had one in several years... but MAN they're good!!! Thank goodness they're not regularly available... I'd be a fatty.

23. I have never rode a Ferris Wheel. They scare the heck out of me... but I've rode pretty much everything else there is at a theme park!

24. What scares me? The thought of something happening to my kids, petifiles, cancer, heart disease, and anaphalaxys. Otherwise, I'm not very fearful.

25. The best and worst things I've experienced in my life.... best - becoming a mother.... worst - losing my brother.
