100 Tid Bits... about me!

As promised, I have pondered, racked, and picked my brain for 100 miscellaneous morsels, about me, to share with you.

I only have one thing to say... do not hold any of the below information against me. Please have mercy on my soul and judge me not, for the Lord has commandeth it so! And anyways, it's all my parent's fault. (just kidding mom! I knew that would make her gasp.)

  1. Wow! first one to comment. lots of tidbits I didn't know about you. Have another baby, you know it will be a girl!!! I love my family too, but I crave alone time where I don't have to serve anyone and I can just relax and do something I want to do!

  2. Okay- You HIT a MOOSE on your BIKE??? I bet your the ONLY one who could say that, how does that happen?
    And- I LOVE math!! LOVE LOVE LOVE. I aced all my college math classes and then dropped out because I couldn't handle english or history. I could be a Math teacher if it paid good, and if I got paid to go to school to be a teacher.

    Oh- I still get zits, worse than a teeny bopper, they pop up and then take 2 weeks to go away the next day another pops up in the exact same spot. I am fearful of scars for that reason.
    I loved reading more about you!!
    What a fun post, I can't wait till I can do mine.

  3. I can't believe you hit a moose and were chased by a bear, and lived to tell about it! Most of the other stuff I think I knew. (Except Steve with the Chinese splits!) Wow! How does a person respond to their date doing that???

  4. What a great list! I loved learning so much more about you. I knew the crafty creative stuff, but the moose and the bear take the cake!

  5. What FUN to learn this stuff about you! That's HILARIOUS about you hitting a moose on your bike! I hate math too. I had to take Algebra twice in High School and I ended up dropping it in college. You know what I hate about zits at my age? They leave marks that take a year to go away. Argh! Thanks for sharing your fun stuff - your secrets are safe with me.

  6. i like knowing more about you! you're such a fun person, seriously!!!

  7. WOW!! Love the list! So fun learning more about you Jen!
    I am with you about the Math. I am 3 classes away from my degree and this Math thing is all I have left! My biggest road block yet to that degree. Uugghhh!!

  8. fun, fun, fun, you are such and interesting person!!

  9. I have to agree with the math and zits!! Get you an Alex to tutor you through Math amd you'll pass with flying colors. I did.. It's really bad when you have to have your teenage son tutor but the way that I look at it whatever works... Fun learning new things about you. I can honestly say I've never run into a moose although one almost ran into me while we were camping woth the family at Cottonwood. Yes that was the same trip that mom peed her pants and had to wear dad's sweats!!! He's only a foot taller than she was. They were up under her armpits and still bagged a mile around her ankles. I'm laughing just thinking about it.. I miss mom and Kay too. You might as well have a baby cuz you know it'll be a girl everyone else's third child was a girl.. Go on give it a try.. at least the practicing will be fun...

  10. Wow! What an interesting list. No driver's license until 18?!

  11. Your list was so fun to read! There are so many hilarious ones, like hitting a moose, eating previously used gum, and wetting your pants, that's so funny. I didn't know that you went and worked at Ricks. I went to ByuI, I loved it up there! You have had so many different jobs, wow, you can do anything! That's amazing!

  12. Jen, I love your personality! You are awesome! It was so fun to read about you! You have a million talents, I'm so jealous! Way to go!

  13. Zits are the bane of my existence and I am way older than you. Very fun list, I love people who put it out there and tell the truth! We'd be good friends in real life, I'm not a thing like you,(except for sewing, that I do) so we would appreciate the others different qualities. And I would use you for your creativity and I would make you laugh.

  14. Oh...I am a door slammer too. But unlike you, I am not trying to break the habit, it's how my family knows I am really ticked off!

  15. 50. deserves a story
    oh and I must have missed the moose thing but I want that story too
    baby question. you're such a good mom and I'd love to see you with more :)
    but this....I mean I just think I accidently took this wrong but...well?
    this: My favorite parts to kiss on my baby is the space between his jaw and ear and his chubby cheeks.
    lead on my part to confusion on my part about this:
    My favorite part on my husband is his abs. Okay, and his rear. He has a very nice rear.
    because I was still thinking of the favorite parts to kiss...should I have kept that to myself? I just had to laugh at my misconception. :)

  16. I wish I could edit comments...sorry about the extra "on my part"


Tell me what you think... only if it compliments me and my, sometimes humorous, sometimes weird, sometimes creative, post! No meanies allowed!
