(Well, not this exact once obviously since it’s mine and I’m not parting with it…but one just like it)

But first, since it’s my birthday I get to blather on about myself for a bit.  Here are five things about me you might not know.

1.  One dream I have is to play Maria in The Sound of Music.  I have no idea why.  It’s not like The Sound of Music is my favorite movie ever or anything, I just really love all the songs and I think it would be so fun to be in a musical.  I have no clue when that opportunity would present itself, but if it did I’d be so on it!

2.  My hair is currently the longest is has ever been since I was 5 years old.  I’ve always been one to try to grow it out but get tired of it and cut is short again, but this time I just keep letting it grow and grow.

3.  Once I wore footie pajamas to school (as a teacher) on pajama day.  My feet hurt by the end of the day from standing basically barefoot on concrete floors all day.  But I looked cute.

4.  I will own, wear, and get up on a pair of pointe shoes before I die.  I didn’t do ballet long enough to get my pointe shoes and I always regretted that.  I sure hope they make pointe shoes in size gargantuan 11.

5.  When I ran my very first 5k I made a gigantic novice mistake and ate a big breakfast that morning, thinking I needed lots of fuel.  I’m talking big bowl of oatmeal plus bacon, and eggs big.  That was a mistake.  I threw up.

(Michael just looked at this picture over my shoulder and said “oh hey, that’s a picture of your first 5k.  You puked bad.”  Yep, and he was a trooper and stood right by me and held my ponytail up so it wouldn’t get barfed on.  I knew he was a keeper.)

So back to the giveaway at hand…

  1. It’s interesting that you would like to be Maria in a Sound of Music musical someday…I was in the sound of music musical in high school and played Louissa. It was lots of fun!!
