MY SHRINKING PANTS & 101 USELESS THINGS YOU DIDN'T WANT TO KNOW ABOUT ME
My size 28 jeans that didn't even fit me until about the time I started this healthy lifestyle about 9 months ago. The black pants are a NON-PLUS SIZE Target 2X and for those of you who don't know, there is a huge difference between a PLUS SIZE 2X and a NON PLUS SIZE 2X.
Now for 101 Things About Me I bit the logo off of SHANILIE over at LOSING OVER HALF OF ME 1. I am a California girl through and through even though I now life in the Pacific Northwest 2. I secretly wish I was Mexican (sometimes) because I love their culture 3. I LOVE Zumba because I like to shake my ass in front of people (Yep, I'm a show off) 4. I have my novel character voices in my head. Which I suppose would explain why I'm SKITZO 5. I pull my hair out one strand at a time when I'm nervous and roll it (since I was very little) 6. I once shaved my eyebrows completely off and drew them on in black pencil for over a year. I looked Asian 7. When I was in 7th grade I hooked my best friend up with my IMAGINARY cousin who lived in Alaska. 8. Then I killed him when I got tired of it cuz he was imaginary and I had that power. I gave him a fatal illness. 9. She believed me 10. I sing reggaeton in the shower 11. I once ran from the shower, butt naked, to the living room to answer an expected phone call and then ran back to the bathroom where I promptly slipped and fell HARD on my ass 12. I speak Spanish fluently. 13. I know how to cuss in Italian, Greek, Japanese, Portuguese, and French 14. I'm a very jealous person 15. I secretly love all the teeny bopper TV shows like iCarly, Victorious, Wizards of Waverly Place and Hannah Montana 16. I also LOVE LOVE LOVE cop shows. NCIS, CIS, BONES, WHITE COLLAR, MONK, LAW & ORDER and so forth and so on. 17. I wish I could be on Survivor 18. I love the smell of Zest soap and when I was pregnant with Breezy, if I had thought it would taste as good as it smelled I would have eaten it 19. I want to KILL Dora the Explorer 20. I don't mind washing and drying clothes but I HATE folding them and hanging them up 21. I don't mind cooking but I HATE doing dishes 22. I LOVE authentic Mexican food like Tostadas de Tinga, REAL chiles rellenos, REAL tacos, atole, champurrado, REAL tamales, eggs with real refried beans (not canned) and green chile. 23. I thought I wore a size 9 shoe until I turned 21 and had my foot measured. I actually wear a 7.5 or 8. 24. The biggest pants size I ever wore was size 32 and it was tight 25. I am a TWIHARD and secretly wish Edward would come to my town (it's the same state lol) and sweep me off my feet 26. I think my iPhone has actually become a 5th appendage 27. I wear Twilight Woods and Black Amethyst perfume from Bath & Body Works 28. My favorite flower is the Orchid closely followed by the Lace Tulip 29. My favorite color is baby pink. My favorite color combinations are pink and brown or pink gray and black 30. I have all four wisdom teeth but they are upside down and therefore still painful because the roots are on the surface 31. I am secretly grateful that God did not give me any boys (I LOVE MY GIRLS) 32. I love Spongebob Squarepants and pee my pants a little when I watch from laughing 33. I cannot stand people who chew with their mouth open (the only excuse for this is when you are sick and cannot breathe through your nose) 34. My boobs are different sizes (like severely) 35. I had braces for 5 years but I made them take them off for my Senior Pictures 36. When I was little we had 20 finches, 3 parakeets, upwards of 15 hamsters (4 teddy bear and 11 mini teddy bear), 3 dogs and 2 cats and numerous fish 37. The idea for my first finished novel came to me when I was 10 years old. 15 years later it's finished. 38. Other than my husband I only had one other boyfriend 39. I am the opposite of a germ-a-phobe 40. I only brush my teeth once a day. In 26 years I have only had 2 cavities 41. I admittedly wear granny panties but can't wait until I can buy sexy little numbers from Victoria's Secret and raunchy little numbers from Frederick's of Hollywood 42. I miss the freakishness that was Santa Monica Boulevard in Santa Monica with the street performers, the working girls, the punks and transvestites and other crazies and going there every weekend (sigh) 43. I love the movie Pretty Woman and wanted to be Julia Roberts for the longest time 44. I used to love horror movies as a teen ... not anymore. 45. My favorite cartoons ever are Duck Tales, Gummi Bears, ChipNDale Rescue Rangers, Bonkers, Darkwing Duck, and the normal after school line-up that they don't even bother to show anymore. 46. I love cats 47. I missed half of my sophomore year of high school because my bronchial asthma was misdiagnosed as pleurisy and other nonsensical issues with my lungs and was thus prescripted medicine that only made my asthma worse. It took an asthma attack and a blue faced trip to the emergency room to find out it was 'just asthma'. 48. I was given an epidural with Buzzy. One numbing poke. One big needle and DONE 49. I was given a spinal with Breezy. 25 numbing pokes. 25 other needles of varying sizes and only after 1.5 hours and the 25th needle was my spinal block FINALLY in place. 50. I have permanent unbearable pain where my spinal was placed whenever any pressure is put there 51. I can turn my feet backwards 52. I can curl my tongue into a three leaf clover 53. I LOVE dark chocolate 54. I am a magic eraser freak (the Mr. Clean kind . . . not the kiddie kind) 55. I can be ticklish or not ticklish. I can turn it on and off. Lucky me! 56. I have a third boob. Well, at least a place where one was supposed to grow. I guess the correct way to say it is that I have an undeveloped third areola (the dark part of a boob) 57. My favorite ice cream is coffee heathbar crunch followed closely by chocolate. 58. Among my favorite veggies are broccoli, artichoke, and butternut squash 59. I love having acrylic nails but rarely actually get them 60. I shave my toes, my knuckles and my upper lip 61. I don't feel 26 years old. I still feel 18. 62. I get abthyst ulcers on my tongue sometimes and it looks like a butcher took his knife to my tongue 63. I am allergic to cinnamon gum and cinnamon candies (but not real cinnamon?) which causes said abthyst ulcers 64. I am not allergic to any medications but my entire family says we are allergic to penicillin (sp?) because the only person in our family whoever took it died within minutes 65. I am the oldest of 5 children. Me and my sister from my mom and my two brothers and sister from my dad 66. My youngest sister is only 5 years older than Buzzy 67. Buzzy and Breezy have never met my dad or any of their aunts an uncle's except my sister who lives with us. (They have 8 aunts and 9 uncles total) 68. My girls' oldest uncle is only 5 years younger than their great grandpa. Mind BOGGLING!! 69. My grandfather is 30 years younger than my father-in-law 70. I have a very sarcastic sense of humor 71. I am a moderate republican 72. I am anti-abortion 73. I DO NOT HATE people for their choices, but I DO BELIEVE many people make BAD/WRONG choices (including myself) 74. I find it comical that our president was publicly called a monkey 75. I sometimes think I am going to go crazy if my children don't stop talking/whining for 10 seconds. 76. I believe in a loose version of the idea 'children should be seen and not heard'. There are definitely situations where this applies and certainly others where it does not 77. I can type 77wpm - no errors - when I try 78. I love Nips candies 79. I CANNOT wiggle my ears 80. I CAN raise both eyebrows independently of each other 81. I wish I could tie a cherry stem with my tongue (my mom can) 82. I have a lot of areys in my family. Carey, Gary, Mary, Terri, 83. My middle name is Breanne 84. My maiden name was Tint - yup - TINT 85. My dad paid my mom when she got pregnant with me to have an abortion (I don't think he knows I know that) 86. My grandparents told me mom if she wasn't going to keep me they were going to adopt me 87. They have always treated me as their third and youngest daughter 88. My grandparents were 35 and 36 respectively when I was born 89. My great great grandmother (who everyone says I am the spitting image of) was alive until I turned 2. 90. Until the last 5 years of my life (when I have lived in Washington) I used to go to Disneyland 2X every year of my life. I miss that. 91. My grandfather used to work for Disney Studios and created Peter Pans shadows in the Peter Pan ride 92. My great grandfather helped create the original KING KONG 93. My late great aunt Kathy was a hairdresser to the stars and I have autographs from actors as early as Lucille Ball, Dick Van Dyke, Jerry Van Dyke and Mary Tyler Moore as well as more recent actors who I am not as impressed with 94. Despite my weight I can bend myself into pretzel shapes, pulling my legs over my head, reaching well past my toes both sitting and standing and I can almost do the splits 95. I can feel my hip bones when I lie on my side. I cannot wait until I can feel them regardless of how I am laying/standing 96. I hate sports although I don't mind watching them every once in a while 97. I have been told I have more hair on my head than three adult women combined 98. As a teen I used to shave my ENTIRE BODY 99. Once upon a time after Breezy was born I was interested in getting an elective hysterectomy 100. I am now grateful I didn't do it. 101. I am thinking someday I may want a third or even fourth baby (siiigh) XO Kristen
