Happy Birthday to Me


This past week was a lot of fun.  I took my niece to the movies, then I had another niece come over and we had a pajama slumber party.  Filled with singing, dancing and eating way too many cookies:)  But it was a lot of fun, I sort of sacrificed a few workouts to spend the time with them, but that's okay because they are more than worth it!  They all help keep my young, that and up to date on all Disney princess everything!


I did something this past week that was a total first for me.  I know a lot of you will laugh, because most people start doing this when they are younger.  But I dyed my hair for the first time ever.
See I had a few blond hairs on top of my head, that may or may not have been mistaken for grays:) I am strange I love my hair color, so I was nervous to change it.  So I picked a color that looked very similar to my own.  Which in reality was a shade or so darker.  But apparently it was so similar that not a single person this week even noticed, not even family and I told them I colored it, haha.
But it's all good, the only important part was to get rid of those "blond" hairs:)


In a couple of days, I will be turning another year older.  I am one of those weird people who love birthdays.  Age is irrelevant anyway, it's all about how you feel and act.  Anyone who knows me, knows I have no intention of ever growing up, so I guess I will be able to be forever young:)
So on my birthday, I never work...ever.  I take that day just for me, and sleep in, run or go out to lunch.  I will eat cake and sticky rolls and not care a single second about any of the calories!


So since this week I have a birthday, I decided to do one of those fun fact posts.  Hopefully I will be able to keep this fresh and not things I have mentioned before:)
I found a website that gives over 800 random questions to answer about yourself, so I picked a few to share.

How many pillows do you sleep with?
Usually 3 and occasionally up to 5, I don't know why I just like pillows around me I guess:)

How many hats do you own?
I really don't know on this, I am going to say it's over 30 for sure.  I love running hats, and love lots of different colors so I own ton's of them.

Can you ice skate?
Yes, I did a lot as a child.  But haven't done it in years, although I did tell one of my nieces I would take her this winter.  On the mornings I run along the local canal by my house, on the day's its froze over, I remember heading down there as a kid and skating on the ice.  Although we didn't have skates, usually we just slid around in our boots and hoped we didn't break through the ice:)

What was the last song you danced to?
During the sleepover with my niece I made her watch the original Annie with me, and we did get up and dance to The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow:)  Yup, I am a dork, but I am fine with it!

If you could bankrupt one person or company who would it be?
This one is tough, I don't really envy specific rich people.  I figure they earned it and whatever.  But whenever I hear of rich people who are idiots or leaving all their money to their pets or something dumb like that.  That grabs my attention, so ya if I could take someones money it would be someone who was planning on leaving it all to their cat, LOL
As for companies, it would have to be a corrupt one, maybe a oil company (when they raise the gas prices back up, haha.)

Have you ever invented a fairly unique meal or drink?
Hmmm, well when I was younger around the age of 12, I used to like to make pink mash potatoes with baby blue gravy.. Ya, no one ate it but me, and I could never understand why:)

What is your favorite type of fish?
Well I do love sharks!

Have you ever played golf?
Nope, I look at golf and can't find anything appealing about it so I have no desire to ever try it.

Have you ever walked into a wall?
Many of times.  The worst was when I was 18, my friends and I got off work in a mall and we were in a hurry so we were running through it to get out quick.  I had forgotten they locked the glass doors all except one at close.  I ran full speed and smacked my face right into the glass.  That hurt worse than anything, I am actually shocked my nose didn't break.

Have you ever handled a snake?
Yes, many times.  I have even eaten rattlesnake before!

Have you ever contemplated suing someone?
I used to work as a para-legal and I sued dozens of people each day.  So I am not really sue crazy for myself, it would take a lot to do it.
But I was once hit by someone in a car who was here illegally and with no insurance and the damage they did to me and my body in the accident and the fact that because the cop was busy they got away and not even arrested.  For a time I really wanted to sue anyone who was here driving illegally and anyone who doesn't have their own car insurance.  If I am going to be honest, I still don't agree with people like that!

Did you ever have a tree house as a kid?
Not a tree house, but my did make us a huge hut with windows and doors, and big enough for us to have about 10 friends in it at a time.

How fast do you type?
The last time I was tested I could type 70 WPM without error, but I can type a little faster than that, however their will probably be some errors:)

What is the largest amount of money you have ever won?
I don't know if you consider this winning, but I won a surprise award once at work and with it came a $5,000 cash prize.  But for contest winning, I won a blogger award contest a few months back and landed a $500 check and I thought that was pretty sweet!

What was the last movie you saw in a theater?
It was Unbroken and even though I knew the story before going in to watch, I thought they did a beautiful job and found it very inspiring!

What is going on in your week?  Do you ever have slumber parties with your kids, grandkids or nieces and nephews?
Or pick one or two of the random questions and give me your answer!
