1) I put ketchup on my scrambled eggs. [Background] When I was a tot my doctor wanted me to eat eggs, however, I wouldnt.  He suggested to my mother to put my favorite condiment on it....KETCHUP! Loved em' ever since && still lovin' em! [my son shares my ketchup eggs with me...Im passin on the tradition haha]

2) I cant sleep with socks on...dont ask Im not really sure why!

3) I  [ [ L O V E ] ] cars && four wheeling. Call me a tomboy, but they are part of my passion!  [I can drive stick too woot!]

4)  I always back into parcking spaces, dont ask.  My whole family does it so I guess it just stuck with me hehe.

5)  I cant stand it when ppl walk on the left side of me, I NEED to be on the left side or I get really anxious.  Again, dont ask haha. [ya'll prolly think Im crazy huh?!]

6)  I think carbs & sugar are the devil && I avoid them almost 100% of the time.

7)  I have had an eating disorder since I was 12 years old.  [background] When I was 12 I was heavy, my mother [who is bulimic, anorexic, && a compulsive exerciser] told me it was okay to puke up my food.  In highschool it got so bad if I ate ONE chip I would throw it up. I believe the only time since then that I have not had my eating disorder was when I was pregnant, and even then was hard. I am still to this day constantly battling with myself...its an everyday struggle. [so you can see why i stay away from carbs & sugar...heh]

8) When I eat gum I HAVE to eat two pieces at a time =P.  Also, I only chew gum for 5-10 mins...I think its nasty after that point.

9)  I used to be a sample lady at a local grocery store...haha.  Kinda funny cuz usually they are all really old =].

10)  I know this one is prolly obvious, but I love my son more than life itself.  Sometimes I dont know what I'd do without him. Hes my life.


I hope nobody thinks Im too crazy!  =] Thank you to everyone who takes the time to read this! I love u all!

Feb. 1, 2008 at 2:14 PM haha you're so funny...I don't think you're crazy! I do think it's pretty funny that you were a sample lady at the grocery store, though! Haha! Sorry to hear about your struggle with an eating disorder, but I think it's great that  you're so up front about it. I'm sure there are other moms on here struggling with the same thing, and it always helps to know someone else understands what you're going through! Glad we're friends! :)

Feb. 1, 2008 at 4:11 PM Hi! Here's 10 facts that I already posted to a journal entry on my page. Come by and add your 10 to it and learn about other cafemoms. Thanks!

1. I'm "Bi-Coastal"- having grown up in CA and now living in VA.

2. Some of the best parties I have are on my own, dancing to my hearts content and having a 'lil wine!

3. My favorite colors are green and purple.

4. My favorite time of year is when Spring is turning to Fall and the trees look ablaze with beautiful red, orange and gold colors.

5. I'm a Cafemom's addict!

6. My forest-green Jeep Liberty is named Reggie Kermit (RK) for reliability (Reggie sounds like a reliable, very capable person) and Kermit for his green color and great character. Thanks to my friends Stacy and Mattie for coming up with this! Never thought to name my car before.

7. I have a special love/facination with small towns. Growing up in busy CA is probably why.

8. I take my coffee black!

9. My pregnancy craving was breakfast, breakfast, breakfast!! I would literally have about three each morning! LOL

10. I absolutely love animals!! ALL OF THEM! My favorite quote on a cute plaque in my mother-in-laws house is "Cats are little people with fur coats!"
