Get to know me!

Ok I've been tagged by a few lovely ladies now and it's about time I get to it.

Here's the Rules:
1-Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog
2-Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird
3-Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs
4- Let them know they are TAGGED by leaving a comment on their blog

My random facts that you may or may not know about me:

1. I hate the thought of anyone touching or even coming anywhere near my belly button. I can't even stand it! Scott is constantly mocking me by sticking his finger in his belly button and it totally grosses me out!

2. I constantly have dreams about chewing too much gum or candy especially when I have something really important to tell someone. Usually it's a life or death kind of important and I can't talk because there is too much gum or candy in my mouth. It's the worst feeling ever! I have this dream at least once a month for probably the past couple years.

3. I am totally neurotic when it comes to making lists, grocery lists, things-to-do lists. Any list. If I make a spelling mistake or need to rearrange the items, I'll start the list over on a new piece of paper. I can't cross out anything or it drives me insane. Also I hate it when Scott adds things to the list. I always get him to tell me what to add and then I'll add it.

4. I can't wait to meet Scott as a father. I think it will be like meeting him for the first time again and falling in love with him all over again. I know he is going to be a great father. Now I'm wondering if too many of my things about me are actually about Scott. What can I say, I guess I am still in the Honeymoon phase (even though we've been married for over 3 years, isn't that stage only supposed to last for a year??) You ladies are right though, I do have an amazing husband. He tells me everyday how lucky he is but I really think I'm the one that lucked out.

5. I feel like I have to shave my legs every Thursday night. Even if I just shaved them Wednesday night. I like the feeling of freshly shaved legs on Friday. If I don't, it can ruin my whole Friday. (I didn't shave them last Thursday for the first time in well over a year and it bothered me constantly on Friday, I learned my lesson)

6. It really bothers me when there are dishes in the sink. I would never go to bed and leave them in there. I always feel like everything needs to be tidied up before I hit the hay. Just me being neurotic again I guess.

7. I have had a really rocky relationship with my Dad. There were times when I would go without talking to him for 2 years at a time. I don't think things will ever be great between us and he is not someone I think I could count on. I always envy my friends who are "Daddy's Girls". I can see how much their Dads adore them. But after years and years of heartache I've realized that it's better to have him in my life than not. He's made too many mistakes but at the end of the day, he's still my father and I just have to accept that. You play the hand your dealt right?

Well there you go. Now you now all about me!
My week is going GREAT! I feel like I'm totally on plan and I have gotten to the gym twice this week so far for 2 major sweatfests! It's funny that the elliptical never really makes me breath heavy but I sweat like you wouldn't believe after I've been on it for about 25 mins. Last night I did 40 mins on the elliptical and burned 400 cals! Nice! I also spent about 2 hours cleaning and cooking last night. I tried a new WW recipe. It was in an old WW recipe book that my Mom gave me. I think it's called Cheeseburger Melt or something. It's basically just lean hamburger, pasta, tomatoes, and cheese with a few other things thrown in there. We'll test er out today at lunch and if it's great, I'll post the recipe tomorrow.

That's it for me today. We are ghoing to MIL for supper tonight. I think Lasagna is on the menu. I wonder how many points Lasagna is....any ideas??? It's basically your run of the mill lasagna only with no cottage cheese. I'm going to watch portion size and hopefully there will be a salad as well and NO garlic bread (HUGE weakness of mine!) But I'm planning on another date with the elliptical before dinner so that should keep me in line!

How is everyone making out this week?


  1. Thanks for sharing! It's fun learning these little quirky things about each other. So you're one of those list makers! I'm an occasional list maker, but I find that it's only when I feel the need to bring some order to what's going on. My Scott is a list maker. Our #1's are really similar! Mine's my ear and yours is your bello button! lol

    Basic Lasagne ranges from 6 - 14 points. I looked it up in the points tracker. It says 1c of lasagne with meat sauce is 6, but one serving of lasagne at say Pizza Delight is more like 13. So I'd probably count at least 9 points to be safe and estimate depending on how much cheese she uses. Mmmmmm lasagne!

  2. way to go on the exercising! you're motivating me to get back in there today. i did mon & tuesday too, it feels good! i'm like you, i sweat buckets on the elliptical but it's not like i'm panting, like i do when i run. i don't know that i will ever like running but i definitely like the fact that i can do it now, ya know?

    i don't know...lasagna is pretty delicious, its gotta be up there in the points. i know the lean cuisine lasagna serving is 6-7 maybe the real deal is 9 or 10? i really don't know but there is a lot of cheese in it, ya know? have fun though and try to have like half a serving and half a piece of garlic bread? moderation is key i think :)

  3. wow! i love the part about scott as a dad - so cute!

    and I sort of take for granted my bond with my dad. I can't imagine what that's like for you and the decisions you've had to make but am impressed by your strength :)

    I usually count "foreign" lasagna (with NI i can't verify) as 8 for about a cup or so. usually a safe bet.

  4.'re completely neurotic we've learned. That's ok, I don't have to deal with you too closely. I think you and I would be the odd couple if we ever met. Though I'm also grossed out by belly buttons. I'd say everything else just about it opposite! (not that my hubby isn't great, he's just not great in the same way yours is great, we are completely unsappy and mushy and pretty much do our own thing but that's what works for us). However I think I'd love for you to come live with us so you can do dishes every night!

    Good job on the gyming. You're obviously working your body if you're sweating, but it's important to work the heart and lungs too so try and push it to breath heavy once in awhile. Try intervals of super fast or something.
    Did you get the spreadsheet?

  5. Thanks for sharing with us! This meme has been so cool. Most of the people that have done it are people whose blogs I haven't been reading that long so I feel like I know everyone so much better.

    Good job this week!

    Good job this week!

  7. After reading your list I can see what Randi means by all of us having these things in common that we think are weird. Turns out they're not so weird after all.

    Your dad, the lists, recurring dreams, your hubby as a father...I can relate to all of that.

    Cheeseburger melt...mmmm...I think it's past my lunchtime!

  8. I am exactly 1, 3, & 6. I'm so glad that someone else can relate to the belly button thing!! LOL


    Thanks for sharing. :)

  9. Oh SO fun to read!

    (and I am totally have bellybuttonphobia too. CAN'T stand the thing. ooo, I'm getting nauseous just thinking about it...)

  10. Omg...I am the exact same with lists.... #3, and #6 except I feel I need to have not only the dishes done, but everything else before bed :S

  11. Carolyn - Maybe you or anonymous would like to come over and do our dishes! LOL!!!
