30 Day Challenge Day 1 and Day 2

One of my favorite things about blogging is meeting other bloggers - and I thought I would take this opportunity to partake in Katies 30 Day blogging challenge
So I'm a few days behind - so I'm going to take this opportunity to catch up!

Day 1: introduce, recent picture, and 15 interesting facts

Hello there! I love getting to know other fellow bloggers - so here is your chance to get to know me, or if get to know more of me in the next 30 days! i started this blog to document my life, and i never imagined others being interested in what i have to say or what i am doing. in my blog i will be honest with you, i will be an open book, and i'm excited to share it with you at least for the next 30 days.

Here is a recent picture of me [and Justin]. I very seldom have a picture of just myself... so this is as good as it gets. we were on our way down to THE Ohio State campus for the OSU vs Miami game last month
now here are 15 interesting facts about moi

[1] i have 2 great grandmas - 94 and 96 [my 94 yr old ggma - reads my blog! love it!] 7 grandparents [4 grandmas and 3 grandpas - all of my parent's parents are divorced and re-married] all still alive and kicking! i am beyond fortunate! and i love that this is one of the ways i communicate with them!
[2] i love routine and making plans - and it doesn't go over very well when either one doesn't go as planned - i'm getting MUCH better at this!
[3] i can watch golf all day long, but as soon as i turn the channel to a tennis match - i'm fast asleep!
[4] i absolutely love Christmas! Did you know its only 72 days left :)
[5] i would totally love to go back in time and be a fly on the wall for 1 day when Justin was in college - i love hearing his stories!
[6] i work at a hospital [thank G in HR] but i'm deathly afraid of needles and blood! eek!
[7] flip flops and socks totally wig me out! like heebie jeebies beyond uncomfortable type feeling
[8] my orthodontist looked in my mouth when i was in 3rd grade and simply just said "youre a challenge... let me tell you that makes you feel good as a nervous little kid - i have to admit - he did a pretty good job!
[9] i'm loving my iphone and enjoying having a smartphone again! as of right now her name is bella for isabella the iphone.. the verdict is still out on her name - any other suggestions would be appreciated?? am i the only one who names their phone/car??
[10] i despise the words moist and penetrating/penetration [esp during football games - when the running back penetrated through the defensive line....eww gross!]
[11]there is something about a guy with a sleeve that is totally hot- however i do not want J to ever get one! i know... very contradictory.. but its the truth!
[12] i would love to have blonde highlights again... unfortunately its just not in the budget for me to have it as a constant up keep
[13] the only scripted show i watch is modern family... yes i'm a reality tv junkie!
[14] I totally wish that i could have a a dog - b/c i love the names I have picked out - but I don't know if I will ever be ready for a dog! its a HUGE responsibility! but i love the names [mulligan, bogey, palmer and watson]
[15] my dream job would be an event planner... i love the large aspect of planning events as well the little details

Day 2: Meaning Behind Your Blog Name

I was more excited to start blogging than coming up with a creative/witty/hidden meaning behind my name for my blog- so there it is -I came up with Lindsey at Lovin' My Life. I truly believe in the title of my blog - and I totally love my life, the ups and the downs... so I do love my life! Maybe one day - I'll change it to something a little more creative! But until then - its staying the way it is!

Aly @ Analyze This said...

Caroline said...

My iphone's name is Miss America! Love it!!!

Katie K. said...

Glad you joined in! I am loving all of the new people that I am meeting through it! So jealous you all went to the Miami game...we had to watch it on TV!

Lindsay said...

I LOVE this. I could relate to alot of these facts. I think we'd have a lot in common girl :)

Tickled Pink said...

I actually laughed out loud with the moist/penetration comment. Too funny!

Kelly said...

Omigosh, you're sooo lucky to have all of your greatgrandparents and grandparents, WOW! All of mine have passed away :-( What a great gift that you have!

#5 made me laugh ;-)

And I was a tricky braces patient too... I had sucked my thumb all of my life (true story) but I actually got my braces off 6 months early because I was so diligent with wearing my headgear, hah!!

Love the puppy names!! :-D

Mama Laughlin said...

Yay! I love this!!!

haha- Mulligan and Bogey... you really ARE a golf fanatic!!!

Oh, and I hate moist and penetration as well.. and I'm totally immature when I hear it in football games and I giggle when I hear it or yell out "thats what she said!"

megan said...

Love the dog names you have picked out! My friend and her husband got a Goldendoodle the weekend of the Masters to they named her Birdie. :)

Jenn @ West Sac Honey said...

LOVE that you have so many grandparents it's truly a treasure to have them there for you still that's amazing. I lost mine at a young age and I envy people who still have theirs around I've officially adopted my boyfriends as my own.

And yes just reading the word penetration eeew and typing it is gross.

Modern Family is hands down the best show on television. I have never laughed so hard at a show in my life. Great post - looking forward to the next 27 days...
