25 Random Things About Me!

I read a post over at Craft-O-Maniac and truly enjoyed reading it. Jen devoted a post to her. She told her readers some things about her that let us get to know her better. I thought it was such a clever idea. So, I decided that I do a post about me, and things that nobody (or very few people) knows about me. Probably to you, none of this will matter, but hey, it is me!  Meeting people through blogging has been great, but you really don't get to know that person. And, I want you to know me! we go:
25 Random Things About Me!

1. I LOVE salt. I put salt on everything...Doritos chips, buttered toast, you name it, I put salt on it.
2. I have self diagnosed myself with OCD. My mind never shuts off. I am always planning something new.
3. When I grow up, I want to be an ultrasound technician.
4. I love the smell of fresh cut grass. Nothing smells better!
5. I am my children's biggest fan. I was given 5 wonderful gifts that I will never be able to repay my Heavenly Father for.

6. I have to vacuum everyday, and there has to be straight vacuum lines in the carpet. (I really should have hard wood floors everywhere in my house)
7. I want to adopt a child.
8. I drink 8 to 12 Diet Dr. Peppers a day - really, I do.

10. My favorite outfit is a pair of jeans, a white t-shirt and a pair of flip flops.
11. I would give anything for a better self image and some self confidence. (should I chug on over to Mamby Pamby Land?) I second guess everything I do.
12. I don't like to read. But, I hoard magazines. 

13. My favorite tv shows are First 48, Forensic Files and Criminal Minds. (Boy, admitting that makes me feel like I am into gruesome murders)  
14. I love red and turquoise together.
15. I would marry my husband again. I love him.

  5. Those were so fun! I drink a ton of soda too. I usually do Diet Coke topped off with Diet Dr. Pepper, but I love Diet Dr. Pepper too. Thanks for sharing more about yourself! have a great weekend!

  6. It's all true!! AND, I would like to add a few things to this list that everyone should know about you, Irene, so here goes -

  7. Irene, like you I drink 4 or so Diet Piespi's a day. I love how you shared your "list" with us. So cool. I'm following the Friday Blog hop. Come on by and follow me back. Also, I LOVED your rolodex project. I just bought one that is round and must have 300 cards to it. But, I don't know what to do with it. One of those thrift store items I just had to get. LOL Any ideas?

  8. Loved reading these. So fun to learn new things about the bloggers I follow.
    I was a HARD CORE Dr. Pepper drinker for YEARS, drinking at least a 44 oz a day.. but after having my babies switched to Cherry pepsi. Go figure

  9. How cute! Now I am totally curious!!! Is that Mishawaka High School???????Oh please tell me! Lori

  10. Like Sharon...I too would like to add a few things to the list and I will tell you about the hot tamales!

    1. Irene is one of the kindest, most generous people I know. I am proud to call her one of my best friends.

    2. Irene is totally addicted to hot tamales! She can eat boxes and boxes at a time.

    3. Irene looks awesome in her curly, curly hair but straitghtens it most of the time.

    4. Irene has a hard time saying no...but I'm working on that!

  11. How fun! You are the only person(other than me!) who I've heard has to vaccuum everyday! Yea for OCD people like us!

  12. Thanks for all the lovely comments! I think everyone should try to write 25 random things about isn't as easy as you would think!

    Love you Barb & Sharon!

  13. I'm not sure why so many lds women think that it is "cute" to brag about being addicted to anything, even if it is soda pop. It is still so disturbing and sets such a terrible example to all the young women in our church. The newly revised For Strength of Youth pamphlet actually talked about staying away from drinks that give you a high. No, it doesn't specifically say soda, but really, does the Lord need to outline everything single thing for people to be obedient? Grow up and be women!
