10 Things About Me

Hi friends!  For those of you on facebook, I'm sure you've seen lots of your friends posting a list of things about themselves.  If you "like" their post, then they give you a number and you have to post that many things about yourself.  I've enjoyed reading more about my friends, but haven't "liked" a post. 

This reminds me of the tagging craze of my early blogging days in 2008 and 2009. 

Instead of posting things about myself on facebook, I thought I'd share with you lovely readers a few random things about myself. 

So, here you go...10 things you may (or may not) know about Jenny.

1.  I don't like raspberries, cherries, hardboiled eggs, or shrimp.  That's why you won't find any recipes with these ingredients in it on my blog (except for raspberry freezer jam that I make for the boys in my family.  They have been known to lick it off of the knife.)

2.  I love avocados, chocolate, and peanut butter (not all three together though).  Sometimes I sneak spoonfuls of peanut butter and nutella when my kids aren't looking.  I also love pretty much anything that someone else cooks for me.

3.  I played the oboe in high school and college, but have only touched it a handful of time since I've been a mom for the last nine years. 

4.  I attempt to play the organ with the pedals for church every week.  Some hymns sound ok, some sound a little rough.  It's getting easier.

5.  I got married when I was 19.  To my defense, I had completed two years of college and I turned 20 four days after my birthday.

6.  If I sit on the couch after 9 pm, I fall asleep within a few minutes of sitting down.  This is why I try not to sit down before I go to bed.  I haven't stayed awake during a whole movie (while sitting on the couch) for at least a year and a half (since I was pregnant with my last baby).

7.  I hate putting things away:  groceries, clean clothes, papers, etc.  I'd rather make cookies instead.

8.  I'm a little afraid of bears.  However, bears love my garbage during the fall.  I'm just afraid that I'll run into one while I'm hiking with my kids.

9.  I like to run and go to the gym (especially to the Insanity class that I go to).  I'd like to be able to keep running as fast as my 7 year old, but he's pretty fast!

10.  I've eaten oatmeal with raisins and brown sugar for breakfast almost every day for the last year.  And I don't really even like oatmeal or raisins, but they're growing on me. 

All righty...there you go.  10 things about Jenny.

That's all for now.  Have a great day!
