"We don't have much time, she said, so I'll just tell you about me."

I hate sitting in traffic. I will drive miles out of my way to avoid traffic jams. I have insomnia, I only sleep for a few hours at night. I like to ride my bike. I love containers and putting things in them. I am not a good painter. I like to make things. I take pictures everyday. I love celebrity gossip and US Magazine. Daisies and tulips are my favorite flowers. I love pizza. I like funny movies. I like art. Story People make me happy, you would know that if you ever came to my house. The prints are everywhere. I love that Kravitz, knows I am the smartest person alive. I believe in karma. I have a great memory. I don't like the heat. I don't come out of the house if it is over 80 degrees. I love Hershey's chocolate. I am good with names. Please and Thank You go a long way. I love staying at home with Viv, Jude and Phoebe. I love 90's indie rock. I watch Ellen everyday. I like to wear earrings and bracelets. Heinz Ketchup makes just about anything taste better. I don’t like spicy food or pickles. I like my name. I enjoy rainy days. I believe in ghosts. My daughter,Vivian, is named after my Grandmother, I am named after my Great Grandmother and Phoebe is named after my Great-Great Grandmother. I want to do a cross country trip in an RV. I remember phone numbers. Craft supplies are a weakness of mine. Oh, how I love a good craft pro-ject! I am a History geek. A big one! I can watch the History Channel for hours, I love books on US History and I would take a historical and educational vacation over visiting a beach any day of the week. I never went to college and don't regret it at all. I am a picky eater. I can be high-maintenance. I HATE Wal-Mart, but I love their prices – so I go. On the other hand, Target feels like home. Makes me happy just to be there. Everything I save at Wal-mart gets spent at Target! Moochers make me INSANE!!! I HATE tax time! I have seen DMB in concert 9 times. I am full of useless knowledge. The smell of a newly bathed baby is my ultimate favorite. I can be obsessive, I am definitely impulsive – but I am not compulsive. I am a TV junkie. My dog drives me nuts sometimes, but I love him - so it is okay. Things I want to learn: patience, to cook, and to use power tools. ABC's & 123's are my favorite comfort food. I love that Jude has a sense of humor and likes to play practical jokes on my sister. I love surprising people. I love to laugh. I strongly prefer to wear matching bra and undies. You know, in case I’m ever in an accident. I was a rebellious teen and I am convinced that my mom is paying me back for it by gifting my children Lego's. Teeny -tiny ones! Brown is my favorite color. I like my sister and brother - even if I didn't have to, I would still like them. They are fun! They get me. I hate voice mail. I never check it. I’m a rule bender. I kick-ass at trivia. I love my son’s laugh. I love the smell just after it rains. I like to be on the go. I don't like waiting in long lines. I want to travel more. I love catalogs. I hate putting laundry away. I love anything about the early 1900's. It if took part in Newport, RI - then even better! I love a good facial. I don't like to cook. Thank God for Wegman's pre-made meals, take out and mac and cheese! Yes, Jude was named after the Beatles song. Not a fan of sand. I believe that what doesn't kill you - makes you stronger. I am pretty strong! My favorite car was my Mercedes SLK. I miss it everyday but, you can't fit car seats in a 2 seater! Denver is my favorite city. I almost always wear something black. I like to be comfortable. I am the worst pregnant person ever. I am pretty much obsessed with all things Vanderbilt. The whole clan - can't get enough of them! If I won a million dollars one of my big splurges - just for me... would be for an all access tour of Biltmore. A leave no rock uncovered, see it all tour. The most adventurous thing I have ever done: Hot Air balloon ride through the Rockies. I HATE camping and would rather set my hair on fire than subject myself to sleeping outside. I love being a mom of 3! I’ve never broken a bone. Sprained a few. Spelling errors irritate me. Use spell check! I love accents! Anything said by someone with an accent is worth listening to. I hear myself quoting my Dad a lot as I get older and I am okay with it. He is a smart cookie! California is my favorite state. No, Phoebe is not nicknamed after Justin Bieber - the Beibs is a hybrid of BeBe and Phoebs. I am protective of "my people". I can handle the truth. I talk to my mom everyday.
I like me!
