25 Random Things About Me...

I've seen this recently on some of my friend's blogs so I thought I would follow suit. I really like reading this on other people's blogs... because it's fun to get little insights to what makes them tick. I like being surprised and thinking, "I didn't know that about them!" and it's always fun to relate and think, "Hey! Me too!" Some things you may already know, but hopefully some will surprise you. Or at least make you laugh.

1. I do not like it when people call me Mandy, that is not my name and I will not answer to it
2. I like the smell of Payless Shoe Stores
3. I've never lived in an apartment
4. I played tennis my freshman year for Stephen F Austin State University
5. I love fireplaces and can't wait to have one in my house one day
6. I eat Cinnamon Roll flavored Oatmeal every weekday at my cubicle
7. When I am in a hotel room, I always sleep in the bed farthest away from the window
8. I've been to Austria, The Netherlands and the Czech Republic
9. I've put re-runs of Beverly Hills 90210 on my Season Pass on Tivo so I can watch it every night
10. I fall asleep every night to Frasier on TV - set the sleep timer and I'm gone!
11. I will eat Spinach & Artichoke dip at any restuarant
12. My hair has never been colored
13. The prettiest sunset I've ever seen was in Hawaii
14. I'm not a fan of animals
15. My favorite book is Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers
16. I interned in the Sports Dept at WFAA-TV and 94.9 KLTY
17. I've always wanted to work for ESPN, live in Bristol, Conneticut and be a sideline reporter for Monday Night Football
18. When I travel, I always check to see if there is a PF Changs within walking distance of my hotel.
19. I would eat Chiloso sausage, egg and cheese breakfast tacos every morning if I could
20. I wish I could cook like my mother, aunts and grandmother
21. My dad and I loved watching the movie Father of the Bride b/c they played basketball together like we did.
22. If I get sick, it is strep throat...I can't remember the last time I was sick with anything different
23. I wish people would be more happy with what they have than what they don't have. You live in America - you are already blessed!
24. I didn't pierce my ears until my senior year in college
25. I used to work at Subway - I was a Sandwich Artist!

I don't think I'm too crazy...haha
