28 Facts about me on my 28th Birthday

I got the idea for this post from Awesomely Luvvie.  Here are some facts to let you get to know me.

  1. I was named after my fathers favorite aunt.
  2. I can't say I have only one favorite color, but my favorite for a long time was red, and now I love red, hot pink, and aqua blue.
  3. I am a chocolate lover, so if you ever gift me chocolate, we are best friends for life.
  4. I am just like my grandma- loudmouth, country, and loves me some Dr. Pepper
  5. I was disowned for dating(and later marrying) a black man.  We have been married for nearly 8 years and have two sons. :)
  6. I am second born and the oldest of the girls in my family.  Four brothers and two sisters in all.
  7. I love to bake but I hate to cook.  Yes, I know....
  8. I have been blogging for nearly 3 years.
  9. My favorite movie is Purple Rain, although Prince now seems like an entitled jackass, did you see the Grammy's?
  10. My favorite author is Jacqueline Carey.  I love both her Kushiel and Namah book series.
  11. I suffer from asthma.  
  12. I love fashion and would love to make clothing but I can't sew a straight line to save my life.  
  13. I don't drink tap water or even cook with it.  I really should get a Sparkletts or Ozarka subsription.
  14. I am addicted to eBay and had to ban myself for several months because I will buy damn near anything if there is FREE SHIPPING!
  15. I own a sewing machine and it has been sitting in my utility room for over 8 months. (see #12)
  16. I love my husbands aunt's eggplant even though I am slightly allergic, it doesn't keep me from eating it!
  17. I have recently discovered and fallen in love with Peppermint tea.
  18. I don't have a drivers license.
  19. I took Cosmetology in high school for one year, so I know how to give a mean mani-pedi.
  20. Currently dying right now because my DVD player konked out on us before the holidays so we had nothing to do but watch Netflix on the Wii and surf the web(which obviously I don't have a problem with-check my Pinterest if you don't believe me)
  21. My favorite singer was Mariah Carey, but lately I just haven't been impressed with her.
  22. My brother and cousin are awesome tattoo artists, although I am too chicken to EVER get one.
  23. I had well over 700 twitter followers until I just recently deactivated my account.  Too much social media can be a bad thing.
  24. I can only eat Brown Sugar Pop Tarts because all of the other flavors give me heart burn.
  25. I love the Twilight series.  (don't act like I'm the only one)
  26. I wish they could bring back Super Nintendo so I can play Street Fighter and Donkey Kong again....yes I do realize I can play it on my Wii but its not the same.
  27. I own hot rollers that I have only used three times since I bought them.
  28. I would love to rock a curly fro one day.  I am seriously contemplating cutting my hair to achieve this.
