I'm it

I was tagged by my sister-in-law Jeanette, and even though I don't consider myself very interesting, I shall try my very hardest to have unique joys, fears, obsessions, and interesting facts.

Joys: (This one is easy)
Clean Kitchen
New Socks
Torrential rain storms
Cute AND comfortable shoes
Soft grass
Ice cream

Fears: (Not quite as easy)
Disappointing people I love
A family member getting in a debilitating accident
Not reaching my potential

Running/being healthy
Brushing my teeth
The Gospel

Interesting Facts:
I'm running a half-marathon tomorrow!
I have never broken a bone
I was in a Dairy Princess Pageant
I had braces for 6 months
Never been to Disneyland, but my favorite Disney movie is Aladin ("I can show you the world...")
I have a goal to run a marathon on the Great Wall of China

The truth comes out...

Thanks to the blog of my friend Kyle, I decided to take this ice cream quiz. Well, I must say, I am surprised. I mean, of course I agree with the first part--being cute and sweet and a bit mischievous isn't all that bad but the second part is what I'm wondering about. Do I really not take anything seriously? I mean, I thought I was pretty serious about taking this test. Especially on one question that had me stumped about what I would do if I were working in an ice cream shop and it was super busy. I seriously would try to convince people to order random flavors and combinations. So what? Wouldn't you?

I'm learning that ice cream is a really sensitive topic. You can tell a lot about a person by what kind of ice cream they order. Example #1: We just bought some goo-ood ice cream (it really should have another name...more exotic and yummy sounding- like ice ambrosia). Mr. T would even say that he pities the fool who doesn't have this sweet taste on their pallets. This just goes to show how brilliant and serious we really are.
