Fun and Quirky Things About Me

I decided it would be fun to write this post after reading a post a friend of mine did sharing weird and wacky things about herself. Here we go, some fun and quirky things you may not know about me!


  • I cried when, not long after getting my drivers license, I hit a bird & it got stuck in the grill of my car. (Why a friend took a pic of this I have no idea. Why I still have this picture is beyond me - see it to the right, the red circle/arrow are the bird...creepy!)
  • Again, going along with the driving theme...not long after the above bird incident, I backed into a white post and chipped the green paint off the car. My little sister was with me so I decided to "bribe" her into not telling my parents - she made out like a bandit at the store that day. Guess what she did the second we walked through the door? Yep, she told anyway!


  • I was taken to Hawaii as my senior trip...but I was only in 10th grade when we went. I enjoyed all the sights on that trip. See for yourself ;-)
  • I graduated from a very small school - there were 19 in my graduating class (k-12 was and still is all in one building).
  • I'm a little OCD. As an example, my closet is organized in a very specific way: (a) it starts with tank tops, then moves to short sleeve shirts, then long sleeve shirts & then sweatshirts (b) the hangers have to go in a specific color pattern - pink, blue, pink, blue, pink, get the picture.
  • I once dyed my best friend's hair (many many moons ago)...let's just say dying hair & drinking Boone's Farm wasn't a good idea! Okay, okay, it really wasn't that bad - although she may tell you differently.
  • I've had to use one of those bags on an airplane for people who get sick. It was an awful experience, I'll spare you the details.
  • My son was 11 days over due!
  • That 11 days over due "baby" (who is 17 at the time of this post) weighed in at 9 lbs. 13 1/2 oz. and was 22 1/2 inches long. I had a c-section.
  • I was named after a dead dog.
  • I love tattoos & at the time of writing this, have 7 of them. My newest one is on my arm and I got it in June (2016) while on a business retreat with a couple friends:
  • I am lucky to be alive. Seriously. I was in a horrible drunk driving accident in 1997. I was the drunk driver.
  • I've never broken any bones.
  • I was a cheerleader for several years.
  • I hate spiders. And snakes. Anything creepy crawly, I don't like.
  • Bridges scare me. I live an hour from the 'Mighty Mac' (Mackinac Bridge) and have never driven over it because I'm too afraid. (It's the longest suspension bridge in the Americas, with a total length of 8,614 feet suspended. It is currently the third longest suspension bridge in the world. Source:
  • I'm petrified of public speaking...until I get a chance to grab a microphone and talk for a few minutes. Then I come alive and don't want to give that mic up ;-)
  • I love trying new things with my hair. Once I cut it short and had it dyed almost blonde. I figure it's only hair and it'll grow it back/the color will grow out. Hmmm...speaking of hair, it's time for something new!
  • I sometimes struggle with still being single. All I've ever wanted is to be a wife and a mom.
  • I have a quirky sense of humor and can easily amuse myself. These pics are not only proof of that, but could be why I'm still single ;-)
