25 Things About Me

Mommy, Esq. and BostonDish both tagged me on Facebook for this meme but I thought I would post it on my blog to share since my blog is linked to my Facebook page. For those of you who know me well or have even been reading my blog regularly, many of these won't be surprises. But I hope to throw a few unexpected nuggets in too!
  1. I am a picky eater. And I hate it. Here's hoping the baby takes after DH!
  2. I would love to write a fantasy novel but I'm lazy and prefer reading other people's works and appreciating/critiquing them.
  3. Shhhh. Don't tell DH but I don't mind cleaning. I just need to be motivated and preferably have NPR's "Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me" on in the background.
  4. Shopping is boring if I go by myself.
  5. I love living in the South and don't miss the snow at all.
  6. I love that we were able to buy a house but worry we bought at the peak of the market.
  7. I want to create a totally awesome landscape in our yard. Think fountains and waterfalls. If only it didn't require lots of time, money and back breaking work.
  8. I miss family and friends in Massachusetts, especially with the little one on the way.
  9. My middle name is Williams. I hated it when I was a kid but now I think it's pretty cool to have a family name as a middle name.
  10. My sisters are my best friends (I never thought I'd say that during the high school years!).
  11. I couldn't have moved to Charlottesville for B-School or Charlotte for a job without the support and encouragement of my dear husband.
  12. I don't believe in soul mates but I believe DH is a perfect fit for me (and vice versa I hope!).
  13. I like my job but don't love it. I'm not sure I need to love my job to feel fulfilled.
  14. I wish I was an expert in one thing.
  15. I worry unnecessarily about things.
  16. I dream about winning the lottery but never play it.
  17. I work for BigFinance but DH handles our money. Good thing he does because that means we save lots of money.
  18. I don't miss smoking at all. 10 months, no problem.
  19. I don't really like watching movies. Especially re-watching them. But I re-read books constantly.
  20. I think my dog is the best-est dog in the whole wide world. He really is our first "baby."
  21. I could take multiple naps in one day and still sleep through the night.
  22. I am a day dreamer.
  23. I hate to exercise. Seriously hate.
  24. I am worried about labor, delivery and everything that comes after.
  25. I am excited beyond words to meet our little girl.

I have a feeling that if we knew one another in RL, we'd be friends too! During graduate school, I actually wrote a fantasy novel - it wasn't great but I still loved doing it. As for labor and delivery - perfectly normal to worry about it, be afraid of it, etc. But it is all worth it in the end. By the way, did you figure out a name? I recall you were having second thoughts!

Add to the list:

26. I am very competitive, particularly in family card games.

The Competitiveness is a Jenkins/Dye family trait so it can't just be applied to me!
