Summer Blog Challenge- Day 3

15 Interesting Facts About Me:

1.  I don't let anyone but myself do the household laundry.  Ever.  I had one bad experience allowing someone else to do it.  Let's just say bleach was involved.

2.  Once upon a time I had an idea to open a bakery.  A banana bread bakery. 

3.  I cannot prettily frost a cake for the life of me.  Every attempt I have made has miserably failed.  I am now a bundt cake woman all the way. ;)

4.  I do not know how to drive a standard.

5.  I used to be pretty good at photography.  I actually have 2 high school senior portrait sessions and a wedding under my belt.  I took all those photos with an old 35mm Pentax. ;)

6.  If you told me 10 years ago that I would be doing everything in my power to remain a stay-at-home as long as I possibly can, I would have told you you were crazy.  I was a stay-at-home mom with my son for 4 months, and decided then that I was not cut out for it.  13 years later with my 4 month old daughter, I can't imagine going back to work right now.

7.  My husband and I graduated from high school together 17 years ago.  We never dated in high school. We reconnected over Facebook 2 years ago, got married 1 year ago, and had our baby girl 4 months ago. <3

8.  My husband and I brought our baby girl home to the same house he was brought home to by his parents 35 years ago.

9.  I want to someday become a certified yoga instructor, with specializations in fertility and prenatal yoga.

10.  I taught at-risk, inner city teens for 7 years.  Rewarding, but I burnt out.  I may go back to teaching one day after my daughter starts school.

11.  I like scrambled egg and Miracle Whip sandwiches.

12.  I ran track as a sprinter all 4 years of high school.  I was co-captain of the girls' team my senior year, and placed 5th with my 4x200 team at states.

13.  My first bike as a little girl was a He-Man Master of the Universe bike.  I may have been a little bit of a tomboy.

14.  I scrapbooked my son's entire baby book, and am trying to do the same with my daughter.

15.  One skill I wish I could master is sewing.  I am terrible at sewing.
