some random facts

I'm feeling a little in a blogging slump.  I'm tired/lazy, and don't have much exciting to post about.  I do have some pictures I need to play around with and I'll post them when I don't feel quite so tired/lazy.  But here are 5 random things about me.  Nothing thrilling - but I guess since this is my journal, it's good for me to record some of these every-day things.


  1. I am OBSESSED with towels.  I have to use my own towel and it grosses me out when someone else wipes their hands on my towel.  And I am obsessed with how towels smell.  The thing that grosses me out more than anything else on this earth is a towel that smells like mold/mildew.  I have been known to actually make myself sick because of the smell of a towel or washcloth.  I am so picky with the smell of towels that I've been known to take my own towel with me on vacations.  Oh - and I can't use a wet towel either - like if Cory uses a towel to dry off with - I CANNOT use it too - YUCK!
  2. I don't really like vanilla ice cream – at least not on it's own.  Sure, with a nice hot piece of my mom's boysenberry pie; or if it's with a bowl full of "Brown Betty" (the BEST Hot-Fudge-Cake – I'll need to post the recipe when I'm not feeling so lazy) – but on it's own – I can totally pass it up. This is not something I can say about most treats…
  3. I blow my nose louder than just about anyone on earth.  In fact, in 1st grade I had a cold and I blew my nose - one of the teachers at the school yelled at me and sent me out in the hall because she thought I was doing it to try to get attention.  I remember crying because that was just the way I blew my nose!
  4. I really enjoy going to movies by myself.  I love sitting wherever I want, not having to share the popcorn (and being able to put as much salt on it as I want!) - and I just really enjoy the time to myself.  In fact, after a long hard day with the boys the best thing Cory could do for me is to offer to watch the boys while I go to a show by myself.  Sometimes I feel guilty, but for the most part I feel relaxed - like I've gotten to escape for 2 hours.
  5. I don't love wearing my wedding band…that sounds horrible – but I just feel claustrophobic with rings on my fingers (especially when I'm not 'skinny').  It's right up there with how sometimes when I'm wearing my hair down I also feel claustrophobic and just have to pull it in a pony-tail…I guess I'm a bit of a freak.

You are too cute. I love reading more about you. And you should post the recipe. I think you made it for us the first time we went to your house to visit, and Troy still talks about it all the time:)

the towel thing makes me laugh.

I think a movie by myself sounds heavenly

And don't feel bad... I rarely wear my wedding ring... makes my husband sad but I just don't like things on my fingers... and I hate the click click click it makes when I'm trying to type and my ring keeps hitting the keyboard.

And a Vanilla ice cream cure? Come visit me and I'll take you for Blue Bell homestyle Vanilla... so gooooooood!!

I'm glad I'm not the only one that feels claustraphobic with their hair down. I can only stand it for a little while, then I have to put it up so it will stop touching me and get off my ears. Glad its not just me! :) Love you. Alicia

WOW - I had no idea we were so much alike. I'm sure your mom can tell you how psychotic I was about my towel when I was growing up (I still am - I've always taken my own towel on vacation and cannot stand using a towel that someone else has used or that smells funny).

I spent a lot of my tween and teen years alone on Friday nights watching movies alone. I still love it. This week I just discovered watching movies by myself on the laptop. Mr. Magoriums magic emporium ! ! ! A Great MOVIE - and I don't like to share my popcorn.

I also could never wear rings. I have lots of them - like 3 different wedding rings and I wear them for a couple weeks, then I just can't.

I do like vanilla ice cream though. sorry.

I love you just the way you are... :) Aunt Charlotte

Funny about your loud nose blowing!

and ditto on the vanilla ice cream - I only like it with CHOCOLATE.

I'm not wearing my rings at the moment because either I gained too much weight with my pregnancy or my fingers swelled up the first month. I took them off and I haven't been able to get them back on again.
I have to agree with maryruth - blue bell does an amazing vanilla - we're spoiled in Texas I think. Vanilla is actually my favorite - sorry. Although it is a bit better with cookies or sherbert.
