Starring: Me? Why not.

I was tagged by The Juice Is Worth The Squeeze in a fun post where I am supposed to tell you 10 honest things about me that you may already know.  
Scary, right!  So, here goes nothing!


(they love taking baths)

1.  I have an obsession with cleaning my ears.  I have since I was a little girl.  I remember I got the end of a Q-Tip stuck in my ear when I was tiny, and my dad told me never to stick anything smaller than my elbow in my ear.  My mom had to clean them for me for about 2 years after that incident.  I still have the obsession - and didn't listen to his advice. oops.

2. I have a flat out, psycho fear of vomit.  We all hate it, right?  Well, my fear is probably like yours of spiders, snakes, or heights.  Its that real.  I turn into a nervous wreck and I have missed out on a lot of things in life because of this fear.  Amusement Parks, airplanes, bars, anywhere with lots of people, I get nervous.

3. Up to this point in my life, the hardest thing I have ever gone through was losing my mom's best friend "my second mom" Barb my senior year of HS.  I remember being there the night she died - those memories are the most vivid ones I have ever had.

4. I pop my knuckles.  Bad.  Not even when I am nervous - I just always do it. 

5.  I talk to myself.  I think it has something to do with my really strong inner consciousness.  I talk myself into things.  I am extremely spiritual.

6. I love kissing my weenie dogs, especially on top of their little ears.  They are so soft - and sometimes I will go for 5 minutes just giving them as many kisses as possible.  I am that crazy dog lady.

7.  I am so unoriginal.  I am the combined artwork of everyone I know.  I love finding things I love in others and copying them.

8.  I am scared of the dark.  I get all shaky at 3 in the morning when I leave for work.  I turn on every light in the house - and I always think the headlights in the car behind me are after me.  Dork, right?!

9. My parents are my favorite people in the whole world.  I am comfortable saying they are 2 of the most incredible people in the world - for their very own unique reasons.  Honestly, I wish they would write a book so I could raise my kids the way they raised my sisters and I.  They are pretty dang close to perfect.

10.  When I was running the yesterday, I was thinking about my wedding dress and veil and I got goosebumps.  I spent the whole run thinking about TL and that special day - I forgot I was running.

Okay - enough about me!  
I want to know about you!  I hope you ALL do it... but here is who I tag:

Iva @ Iva Messy
Kimberly @ My Wooden Heart
Heather @ Alis Grave Nil

* If you've already done it - share 10 more things about yourself!  There's plenty I don't know :)

Don't worry...I take ideas from other people too to create. I think something always comes from something else. I love that you are crazy dog lady and thanks for offering to take the pup. Glad he has a home now. :) I get afraid of the dark too...when my roomies weren't home I kept all of the lights on except mine because I was a scaredy cat. he he. Have a great day love!

Elizabeth Marie said...

I loved your list! I am obsessed with Qtips as well, and TERRIFIED of vomit. I laughed out loud when you said you always think the car behind you is following you-I do that all the time and get SOOOO scared!

I'm so sorry to hear about your second Mom! xo

ONiC said...

omg i tho you talking about me in the first fact hahaha. i can relate :]

Life Abroad said...

This was a fun post to read! I'm also obsessed with cleaning my ears, and the ears of my boyfriend haha! I definitely agree about the 3am darkness thing...I'm such a scaredy cat when it comes to that sort of thing!

RCaitlin said...

4,5,6 Totally can relate!

Holly said...

thanks for the tag!!

and dont feel dorky about being scared of the dark! ditto :)

Kristin said...

I'm with you on the dark. I avoid staying home alone at all costs! p.s. Your weddings shoes are beyond fabulous!

Jules said...

I love getting to know my blog friends better and I am a crazy dog lady too. I treat Chase (our littlest) like a baby. Hubby says that our dogs are very spoiled.

The way that you fear vomit sounds like the way that I fear snakes! I am terrified.

The Queen of Hearts said...

I don't "talk to myself" but rather, I say my thoughts out loud. I think there's a distinct difference. You probably are like me where you just have to say some things out loud, you know, while walking around or whatever and there are those who have conversations with themselves. That might be a little crazy, but, we're not crazy.

The Socialite said...

OMG I have an obsession with cleaning my ears too! lol My fiance thinks it's so weird. haha I'm also scared of the dark too. Well actually...it's more of a "I don't like sleeping alone" thing.

Tracy you're a rockstar! ;)

kirstyb said...

JennyMac said...

Those dogs are so cute! And I used to pop my knuckles all the time too. Ugh. I had to stop but it was a hard habit to break.

Piper Jacquelyn said...

For some reason I always convince myself that the car behind me is following me as well, ha! Just found your blog & am looking forward to reading more!

polishedsense said...

Your doggies are adorable. I love that shot of them in the tub with the soap bubbles!

The New Black said...

Your #1 made me laugh. In the shower I will always turn the shower head to a thick stream and turn so that it goes directly into my ears. I don't know why, but I love the feeling. I am sure that it isn't good for them either, but I still do it.

I am with you on the vomit too. I don't know how I am going to be a Mom that cleans up after her kids because it will make me sick too.

Mrs said...

I pop my knuckles too - I swear I've done it since elementary school and its a habit I've never been able to get rid of, bad bad bad!
