25 things about Jenn....repost from Facebook

25 things about me
Today at 12:17pm
1. We own a store called Greenies. I am working there right now.

2. I don't really know how to swim. I should probably take lessons.

3. I would do a triathalon if it didn't have swimming (see above) or running.

4.I took German in high school but can only remember how to count and some random words. Also I can sing a couple of Christmas carols.

5. I took piano lessons all the way through college. It is something that I need to pick up again. I don't like to play classical stuff though.

6. I hate walking around barefeet. I wear slippers in the house year round.

7. My best friends are from college. Which means that they are allover the country and I don't get to see them enough. Cruise anyone?

8. My favorite food is cheeseburgers in the summer...speaking of summer...

9. I love summer. I love going for bike rides and car shows in the fairlane and bbqing and camping and oh man I can't wait.

10. We have 1966 Ford Fairlane Convertible. It is red with red and white interior. I love the fairlane feeling. I helped re-cover the seats when I was 8 months pregnant. Not very wise cuz it was really really hard.

11. I heart snowboarding. I really like doing rails but I am terrified of jumps. Darin taught me how and he is my favorite to ride with cuz he pushes me to try new things. Even though we tend to get lost and have to hike out. Hiking is my least favorite part of snowboarding.

12. I learned how to surf in Mexico. I did ok and would really like to do that again someday. I should learn how to swim so I don't die doing it.

13. I got stung by a jelly fish while learning how to surf. It was the tiniest sting probably ever but it hurt like a mother.

14. I hope to go to Europe one day. Especially Germany. That stems from taking German in High School. I am intrigued by WWII and love any books or movies about it.

15. I love baking and like cooking. My favorite is trying new recipes. I can spend a descent amount of time looking at recipe blogs and love to read cookbooks. Ivy and I try to make cookies once a week. She just wants to eat the cookie dough and gets really mad when I don't let her. She also likes to help me cook.

16. I learned how to can this past fall. We have hundreds of quarts of pears and peaches and applesauce and pickles( I came in time for applesauce) in the basement.

17. Broccoli is the worst smelling thing in the world.

18. If I was really rich I would have someone wash and comb and do my hair every day. I love the way it feels. Its worth the money to me to go to a salon for a haircut, even though I know quite a few people who are excellent stylists.

19. It is hard for me not to put up Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving. As in right after Halloween.

20. I think family is the most important thing in the world.

21. I play guitar hero until my wrist hurts so bad I can't play anymore. You would think I am better than I actually am. Maybe thats cuz I have my favorite songs that I like to play.

22. I think Bella Swan is the dumbest, whiniest character ever.

23. I hope that Ivy thinks I am the best mom ever cuz I think she is the best daughter ever. Even when she is getting all of her teeth at the same time.

24. I teach the 12 and 13 year old sunday school class at church. I think the kids are really cool and I worry about teaching them right.

25. This took way too long and was kind of hard. I actually despise that these surveys crossed over from myspace to facebook.

I know what you mean re. home projects hee-hee! I was going to put up a tile backsplash, but now I think I'll wait until the summer. I am dreading that project because I know it's going to be filled with surprises. :-)

That is awesome you guys restored the Fairline yourselves. It is so satisfying when you see the end result!

Any trips lined up to OR soon? I'd love to catch up. :-)
