:: eleven factoids::

::1:: i met my husband in first grade. we played together at recess and one day he told me that he thought i was a cutie pie. i wouldn't speak to him again! (i didn't want a boyfriend then!) fourteen years later, we went on our first date.
::2:: if i had to choose 3 foods to eat for the rest of my life it would be: cheese, chocolate chip cookies and salad.
::3:: i dream about hawaii and really, really want to call it home one day.
::4:: every time i go in the sun, i sneeze two times.
::5:: my first embarrassing moment was in preschool when i threw my sandwich across the room at a boy who was teasing me. i didn't want to go back to school. 
::6:: i collect felt and wool roving. (nerd!)
::7:: i do not like scary movies. not one bit. nope.
::8:: snapdragons are my favorite flower. they remind me of my grandmother.
::9:: i'm a bit emotional. i most recently cried when our neighbors cut down the tree in their backyard that housed a squirrel family. even now, thinking about those homeless little squirrels, i get a little teary. 
::10:: i can name all 50 u.s. state capitols. my brother and i used to have a contest to see who could do it the fastest. montpelier, dover, austin....
::11:: jumped off the rock at waimea bay while we were with good pals.
