  6. there's a deep yearning in my soul to travel the world with my husband
  7. i've still never used an eyelash curler. (a friend snipped off her lashes once, plus mine are naturally very curly so it all works out:) )

  1. I also have anemia and can't donate blood. What do you do to combat your anemia?

  2. I am missing the smell of Lilacs so far this spring as my trees are not yet in bloom. and best of all i finally got to open the pool and bring out the patio furniture ( totally random and useless fact for you lol)

  3. I am anemic too! Or I have a history of being at least! In the last few years, I have taken to eating a lot of super foods, and my iron levels have risen to normal. Lots of spinach, beans and veggies!

  4. I've never watched the Star Wars movies...I keep thinking I should, but then life gets in the way.

  5. I went to a one room school until 5th grade in Montana :-)

  6. I cannot donate blood either due to anemia, I have never used an eyelash curler for fear of poking myself in the eye, and I have serious flip flop tan line that wont go away(:

  7. I love spring lilacs too, one of my very favorite smells and I am loving them all in Seattle.

    6. I'm on Blog Lovin' because I saw you were!
    7. I just donated 10 inches on hair, so I cannot do what you do with your long, wavy hair. Could you post some short hair styles pretty please?
    8. I've never donated blood.
    9. I've never used an eyelash curler.
    10. Find me at

  9. #8 gives me all the warm fuzzies! So sweet!

    My random thing is that I have an unhealthy obsession with growing things. I can't leave a store without looking at seeds or buying a new type of mint. I don't have a yard, just a tiny porch, and it is literally covered in fresh, green wonders. My neighbors always stop on the way to their apartments to ask me questions, and I love it. I can't wait to have a yard.

  10. I'm not sure I understand...childhood...without chocolate?! Thats cray haha

    1. haha, I scrolled down just to comment the same thing... and ask "What?!! Please explain!" ;)

  11. I totally understand #8! Lucky for me my son wakes up a few times at night so I never miss him for too long. ;)

    My fun fact(s): This year (2014) marks 10 years since I graduated from college AND 10 years since I moved to Russia, pretty crazy for this American girl.

  12. Random thing, I do random fact wednesday every week on my blog! What a coincidence to see this here today :)

  13. Love it! Thanks for sharing!!

  14. I love posts like this so much! I can't believe you waited so long to taste chocolate! I think I first tried it when I was about 2 and my mom said I was totally savoring the moment. Now, needless to say, I'm sorta kinda addicted. :)

    I'll give you 3 facts:

    - My ultimate goal is to own a castle in Ireland (or England, but I hear taxes are cheaper in Ireland)

    - I have swam in the Hearst Castle pool twice.

    - I am afraid of getting paper cuts.

  15. That's my big fear about eyelash curlers. -Hanna Lei

  16. OMG I WANTED TO BE AN EGYPTOLOGIST TOO!!! What are the chances? Ahaha, nice!!! We are so totally cool. :D

  17. I used to watch surgeries on the discovery health channel when I was little ha. And now I want to travel the world and have babies with my hubby :)

  18. I have epilepsy. I had my first seizure when I was 14 and it was in the shower. My dad had to help me and apparently when the paramedics came I was trying to take off my robe. Embarrassing. Been off and on medication since then. Had a seizure about 1 1/2 years ago and freaked out my kids so I'm back on medication. So I've been dealing with this for 26 years. Wow, that sounds like a long time when I say that.

  19. I always wanted to be a marine biologist. My favorite family vacation was Sea World and would go back in a heart beat!

  20. the sun makes me sneeze. it does that to my dad too.. my mom thought he was faking it until i was born and i started doing it. it's something to do with being indoors and adjusting to the brightness.. it tickles our sinuses.
