Beautiful Mess: 20 Facts About Me

  1. I’ve lived in 4 states and moved a total of 14 times in my life.
  2. I have ancestors from Russia, Poland, Ireland, Sweden and England.
  3. I started working on my family tree in April of 2012 and have found genealogy to be really interesting. It fascinates me to know the address, occupation, etc of long ago ancestors.
  4. I got to take an AncestryDNA test in April and the results showed that I have 100% European ethnicity. Thanks to House Party for accepting me as a host for the AncestryDNA House Party happening in June.
  5. I’m the oldest of 4. I have a younger brother, sister and step-brother.
  6. I played the violin in 4th grade and the clarinet in 5th & 6th. I was never any good and always last (or pretty close to last) chair.
  7. I had the chicken pox when I was 10, from December 1 – 7th, 1989. I know who I contracted it from too.
  8. I like horror movies, even the cheese-tastic ones you find on the SciFi (I refuse to spell it the new way) channel and might be considered B-rated.
  9. Related to #8 is that while I like horror movies, I hate being scared. I don’t like people jumping out at me. And for certain horror flicks if I’m watching them for the first time it has to be in the day time and I cannot be alone.
  10. I love to read. When I was in elementary and high school there were nights I wouldn’t go to sleep because I’d spend the entire night reading.
  11. I’m a total tv junkie. I watch mostly drama’s (especially crime drama’s like Law & Order: SVU, Criminal Minds, CSI:) with some sitcom’s (2 Broke Girls, New Girl, The Millers) thrown in.
  12. I like watching house hunting shows and some of the renovation shows on HGTV too.
  13. I’ve never seen a James Bond movie.
  14. I dream of winning the lottery, but I’ve played less than a handful of times.
  15. I ramble. Like it takes me a while to get to the point in a story because I either go on more than I need to or I get sidetracked.
  16. My favorite numbers are 4 and 24.
  17. My personal blog has been hosted at at least 6 different sites over the years.
  18. I created my first website around 1997 using AOL’s Easy Designer. It basically consisted of gifs and links.
  19. I love driving in my car, windows down (at least partially), music I love playing on the radio.
  20. I have an addiction to watching Law & Order: SVU marathon’s on tv.
