2. my great-great-great-great grandfather was the 12th president of the united states! zachary taylor.
3. i never swim in the ocean. i'm afraid of big waves and not being able to breathe, not sharks or creepy-crawlies. i love pools and lakes.
4. i am 5'7". i like my height.
5. i don't watch downtown abbey, so i don't get about 65% of the tweets in my twitter feed.
6. i'm more nervous about being in the hospital than i am about the actual labor and delivery of junior.
7. people glare at me when i sing out loud in church because they think i'm trying to be funny. i am totally tone deaf.
8. i wish i was quiet and mysterious and clever. really, i'm chatty and i often say irreverent things and then blush bright red.
9. i'm not just trying to be cute when i say my husband is the most handsome man i've ever seen. i really can't think of anyone i've ever met who beats david in the looks department.
10. i never notice if my curtains are open, and it horrifies my husband when i start wandering around the apartment in my underwears (or, gulp, less). i grew up in the country...i never thought about people seeing into my house.
11. i generally do not eat pork.
