I've been tagged again - twice. And, since we're enjoying a lazy Saturday evening at home, I figured I would knock 'em out. First, the lovely Freckles Chick tagged me to tell 7 random things about myself. Secondly, the fabulous Canridings tagged me with the Honestly Weblog award to tell 10 honest things about myself. I'll just go with 10 things, because it's late and I'm tired and surely cannot think of 17 things to tell you without boring you to tears.

Here we go.

1. I met my husband in a bar. And, I actually hit on him first. I spotted him about a week prior at a Math and Science awards banquet (yes, I'm a nerd) and thought he was the hottest little thing I'd ever seen. The next week, feeling brave with a few beers in my belly, I approached him. The rest, as they say, is history.

2. I shower at least twice a day. I wash my hair that much too. I know, it's bad for my hair, but I have to have "fresh" hair for the evening.

3. Not proud of this one (we're being honest, right?), I've puked in my husband's truck 3 times now. The last time being last night. Picture me, stumbling into the house, and him in the driveway hosing out his truck at 2 a.m. He loves me, he really loves me.

4. This has probably been the hardest year of my life. Between all of the house drama and fertility struggles, I have easily cried more this year than all other years combined. But, I wouldn't trade it for the world. I've learned more about myself, my husband and my God this year as well.

5. For the same reasons above, this has also been one of the best years of my life.

6. I'm horrible at remembering birthdays. There are about 4 people in my life who's birthdays I actually know. I wish I was better at it. I'd love to be that person who sends cards to everyone on their day 'o birth, but I just can't do it.

7. I'm happiest when I'm in the hospital, working 75 hours a week. I'd take that over sitting in clinic from 9-5 any day.

8. I don't want to admit this to my husband, but he's turned me into a football fan. These last few weeks we've sat at a sports bar, shared appetizers and watched a good game. I love getting to share one of his greatest passions with him.

9. I am extremely jealous of people who are pregnant. I think my reactions seem genuine when I find out a friend is expecting, but most of it is superficial. I don't know that I'll be able to truly be happy for someone until I am able to experience as well. I hate that.

10. I could probably sleep all day, every day now that I'm working. I have an excuse, though. I do wake up at 4:30 a.m. most days. But, I could easily go to bed right when I walk in the door at the end of the day if it weren't for having to eat and spend time with the husband.

**If you're still with me, I was the winner of a recent Pass It On contest, from my freckley friend. So, I'll be out looking for goodies tomorrow and having a drawing of my own in the next week!**

And, before I forget, I guess I need to tag some folks as well. But, doing this took me a lot longer than I planned (it's hard to come up with random things about yourself!) so if you are reading this, I'm tagging YOU! Leave a comment and let me know you did it.

LOL @ #1--so romantical. I met mine at a kegger in college. Good times.

And I've been guilty of taking a
2nd shower right before bed. It actually helps me sleep!

I love your random things =)
