7 Things About Me...

Jessica tagged me with this. I'm supposed to list 7 random things about myself.

Here are the rules:
Link to the person that tagged you.
Share 7 random or weird facts about yourself.
Tag 7 people with their links at the end of the post, and then scout them out to let them know they've been tagged. (I may or may not do this step - so if you reading this and I tagged you - surprise!)

Here goes:

1. I have known since I was 5 years old that I wanted to be a teacher. My kindergarten teacher told my mom that I would one day be a teacher. She was right! I played school with my sisters and cousins every time they would agree, and I bossed anybody who was younger than me around like crazy!

2. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Ranch dressing. I eat it on everything: salad, chicken strips, french fries, pizza, veggies, grilled cheese sandwiches, french bread, tator tots, and so much more!

3. I have never been out of the country. (Unless you count barely crossing the border into Canada when we vacationed in Michigan.) I dream of one day going to: a beautiful island in Mexico, France, Figi Islands, Switzerland, and anywhere else that is outside of the United States.

4. I am not a "primpy" girl. I actually rarely wear makeup. When I do, my makeup regime consists of face lotion, eye liner, mascara and chap stick.

5. I got married to my high school sweetheart at the age of barely 19; Zack was 18. We have never looked back and said that we got married too young. We do not feel like we missed out on anything or regret it at all.

6. I have actually never had anyone very close to me pass away. My great aunt passed away when I was around 7 years old, but I was too young to really understand it. My great grandma passed away last year, but we haven't really been very close since I was a little girl. I don't know what I'll do when any of my grandparents or other family/friends pass away.

7. When I was growing up, I always wanted kids. I dreamed of being a mommy. I would play with my dolls ALL the time, and even pretend to breastfeed them! I used to say that I wanted 12 kids. Then when I was teenager, I said that I wanted 4 or 5. Now, it's so crazy, I am seriously considering having only 1 child! Nobody in my family can believe it- they are all shocked. I LOVE being a mommy; it is the BEST thing in the world. I love it so much that I just want to give all my time and love to Zayde. I want to be able to give him everything and provide for him, and I'm afraid I can't do all that for more than one child. I think I put so much on myself to be the best mom and give him the best, that I don't know if I can do that for anymore children. We are still praying about it, because I don't want to be selfish- I want to do what is in God's will and plan.

I tag Miranda, Mandy, Leah, Kellye, Christy, Kristal and Rachel N. to tell me 7 things about themselves!

I knew all your fact too! You and I are going to have to scrounge deep to come up with something we don't know about the other! : ) Zayde is so lucky to have a mom like you who actually thinks things through and prays about decisions. I will love you and support you no matter what you decide! : ) You are a fabulous woman and friend!

I too have never had anyone close to me pass away--I fear that day. I did have many home made dresses by my grandma--she was a great seamstress. I also have thought about having only one child, which I've always said I wanted 2 or 4. I think we will have at least one more, but if we don't, I will be perfectly content.

There's nothing wrong with having only one child, you have so much more time & engery & funds to give that child the very best you have to offer them, instead of been tried & pulled in different directions. Don't get me wrong you will be tired even if you have only one but at least you are able to find a moment to yourself & able to enjoy that child & spend time with them as they grow up. Each phase your child goes thru you will want to be apart of it. Children grow up so fast.
