The Facts of Me

I decided to link up with Whitney for this fun new thing called The Facts of Me.  The idea is when you go to museums, zoos, Seaworld type places you learn all kinds of interesting facts about stuff.  So why not tell you some facts of me here in my little corner of the internet!

I dont know how interesting much of this is but alas here we go a few facts of me:

  • I grew up military (Air Force) and have lived in 7 different places
  • One of which being Tokyo, Japan...my junior and senior year of high school
  • When I was little I had super long hair that would tangle underneath very easy, my parents are divorced and one time while at my dads house I cut a huge chunk of knot out of the underside of my hair, I blamed it on my dad and didn't confess for probably a good 10 years later!
  • I had head surgery as an infant...my fontanelles (soft spots) closed around 3 months old and so now I have a huge scar and a lumpy head... no crazy short hair for me!!
  • Due to that my head was growing in the shape of a football, thankfully the surgery corrected that :)
  • I give myself a better pedicure than the ladies at the salon
  • I was in a sorority in college and to this day think it was one of the best decisions I've made, I would not have met my husband or many of my still to this day best friends if it weren't for my sorority
  • I ALWAYS fall asleep at the movies even if for just a few minutes..call me Granny K
  • Growing up we always had to have milk with dinner which I hated but now, its one of my favorite things to drink with dinner
  • Really ghetto rap music is my favorite music to run to, it's what really pumps me up
  • That being said, there are two worship songs on my ipod that always seem to play during the part of half marathons when I start to hit a wall...its not always the same part of the race and I keep my ipod on shuffle...God is so good and always carries me through
  • Which brings me to my mantra when I run " I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength" and "They will soar on wings of eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." Whenever the race gets tough and I start to hit a wall...I repeat those verses over and over and it really gets me through
What are some interesting facts about you?

Ha! Funny what people have in common. I'm such a sucker for falling asleep at the movies no matter what! And then I love running to some good ole' rap music--sometimes the more old school the better!

Tamara @ Everything Happens said...

Hi- I'm a new follower from the linkup! Loving your blog & can't wait to read more :) Hope you have a great day!

Girlfriend, I am THE QUEEN of falling asleep during movies. Maybe it's because I drink wine while I watch them? oops. ;)

I feel you on the falling asleep during movies. I can stay awake during the day but if it is after 7 pm I am seriously so out. Even if it's on the weekend. So hopeless! Just found your blog and have loved getting to know you better. Hope you don't mind if I follow along!

new follower :)

So.. still here from the link up.. HA! If you don't mind sharing the two worship songs you listen to when you run, I would love that! I listen to hip hop for the most part, but I would love a good worship song to help me when I hit that wall (if only I could hit a wall once, I'd be golden.. HA!)

I'm Katie a 27 year old mommy and wife. Welcome to my blog where I will chronicle the happenings of my life as I find the balance between being both SAHM by day and CVICU nurse by night.

I love Jesus and strive to be more like Christ every day. Running, reading, and cooking are some of my favorite past-times. I love photography but I am no pro, but it helps I have such a cute subject to practice on!!
