10 Things About Me

1. We have been TTC for almost 21 months..rapidly approaching our 2 year TTC anniversary in August.

2. I suffer from emetophobia (a phobia of vomiting) and have since I was about 7 years old. My phobia is more about other people vomiting and I cannot stand to hear or see it happen. I have gotten slightly less anxious about this compared to when I was a kid...but I still have a way to go. Hopefully having children will help as I'm sure dealing with vomit will be a regular occurrence.

3. My favourite band is the Foo Fighters! I have all their albums and have seen them in concert several times. My favourite song from their collection is Next Year.

4. I love to bake. Cupcakes, muffins, biscuits, cakes...I try to only do it when my DH comes home otherwise I would be eating my creations all by myself!

5. When I first finished school, my career choice of the time was photographer. I even got into an exclusive arts university to study a Bachelor of Photography, but after 6 months I changed my mind and decided to stick with photography as a hobby!

6. I have 1 sister who is almost 4 years younger than me. We fought A LOT growing up but became friends once I moved out of home. I now consider her one of my best friends.

7. I met my DH 2 weeks after I turned 18 and we have been inseparable ever since!

8. My favourite toys when I was growing up were my barbie dolls. I had a massive collection of dolls plus a suitcase full of their clothes. I spent hours setting up houses for them all and could spend all day playing with them. One year I got some quints dolls (little barbie sized babies which were super cute) and I was then obsessed with making Barbie pregnant and having kids...(I guess I was obsessed with TTC and babies even when I was a kid!).

9. When I was really young I wanted to be a nurse (obviously before my vomit phobia) and had a little uniform that I used to wear and I carried around my toy medical kit.

10. We have a massive DVD collection. I'm talking hundreds and hundreds of movies. However, every time I decide I want to watch a DVD I look through them and decide we have 'nothing to watch'...go figure!

Oh thank you so much for the award! So sweet!

And I love the story about trying to make your quints dolls pregnant! Too cute!

I love reading non-IF stuff about fellow bloggers, it's so interesting :)

Kelli said...

Thank you so much for the award..what good new to see this morning...too bad my phone wouldn't let me respond!

I <3 the Foo Fighters too and would sing along to their album walking home from college.

Have you seen the movie "Adam"? I really liked this one.

HAHA I had the Quints too. And there was a variation of them where you'd get a magic bag and you wouldn't know how many babies or which sex they would be, so you'd buy it and have like triplets or quintuplets. I made my barbies give birth too. They'd be pregnant with clothes stuffed up their dress. Agh. Poor six year old Lauren who had a million Barbies and thought being a mom would be so easy!

PS I used to live about 4 miles from Dave Grohl when I lived in Virginia during part of high school. He had a cow farm. I never met him but I like to think we breathed some of the same air.

Cyndi said...

Oh Gosh just realized I placed the comment above on the wrong post! It was meant for your post above!

I love baking too! The DVD collection ... I know what you mean! I am the same way, nothing to watch!

Thanks so much for the award!

Well, I obviously am lousy at acceptance speeches because I completely forgot to thank you here! So, I guess better late than never: THANK YOU! ;-) I'm glad I found your blog and good luck with the wait.
