7 Things

I know what you're thinking and yes, you are at the right blog! I've been tagged once by Bre'anna and mentioned by Aimee to list 7 random things about me. Since this is a blog for Jon and I, I'll try to mention some random things that involve both of us! Here they are:

  1. Jon and I are moving in 6 days. What? You already knew that? Well, the truth is I can't seem to escape this fact due to the chaos and boxes that is our house. I'm going stir-crazy here. I wish we would go to sleep one night only to wake up to our house completely packed and move-ready. Of course, I'd hope they'd leave me a few changes of clothes for the next few days, but who's being picky??
  2. Since Jon and I have been married, I've realized how picky I am about cleaning. This came as a huge surprise, considering my mom's favorite phrase to describe my room was, "It looks like a pigsty in here!" I've had to "let go and let God" a few times when it comes to Jon helping me with cleaning, allowing him to clean as he pleases.
  3. I have to make our bed a very specific way. I like the fitted sheet to be smooth and tight and for the flat sheet to be tucked in just right. Jon, on the other hand, likes the end of his side to be untucked. See, my husband is 6'5" which means his feet sometimes hang off the bed. He likes to free his feet when sleeping.
  4. The previous fact leads to my next: I'm a cover stealer. I never thought the day would come when I'd say that! I used to pride myself on being a calm sleeper, hardly moving during sleep. I think that was when my sheets were anchored down on both sides. Now that Jon is "free-footing" (I totally made that word up), there is nothing to hold the sheets on his side. Therefore, if I happen to get up in the middle of the night, I make sure to do away with all evidence of me stealing the covers by pulling our comforter BACK onto Jon. He still figures it out and somewhere in our morning routine he states, "So, SOMEONE stole the covers last night." And now we all know who he's talking about!
  5. Another great segway into my other fact: Jon has head-butted me twice in our 9 months of marriage. Now, I'm not talking soccer ball head-butts, but more of a I-just-wanted-to say-hi-and-let-you-feel-my-head kind of head-butt. What's strange is that I always manage to wake up RIGHT before he does it. Then I spend the next few minutes laughing hysterically and my fast asleep, head-butting husband continues sleeping peacefully.
  6. I see double when I tilt my head back. This has prevented me from watching many a movie lying on my back. However, it does allow me to drink and drive...NOT that kind! I mean that I can drink my water, but when I tilt my head back I just see the second road. Pretty cool, huh?! I've had this little issue since I was has to do with a muscle in my eye. I have, however, compensated for it and the look I make when compensating has been lovingly referred to as "Popeye." In fact, when I was in high school, some of my dear friends stole borrowed a cardboard cutout of our dear friend Popeye and gave it to me as a graduation gift. So thoughtful! 
  7. Jon loves the cute dorky pictures of me from when I was younger awkward. I'm glad someone besides my parents think I was cute during that time. One of his favorites is one of me picking tomatoes and holding it up for the camera with my big glasses, dorky blue jean shorts, braided belt, and on the verge of making the awesome Popeye face. In fact, he liked this picture so much that he used/s it as a book mark, which means other people get to enjoy make fun of this fabulous pic of yours truly. If I can get it from him I MIGHT give you a sneak peak.
So there are my 7 random things. Now it's time for me to tag friends. But this is going to be a short list because I don't have 7 blogging friends anymore since most of you have been tagged already or completed the list.

Shannon - You are a wonderful friend and always have such fun things to say. Plus, maybe your random post could include pictures of your adorable family!
Andrea - I may have to wait a while for you to post your 7 things since you're leaving to go out of the country in a few days. Perhaps your list can come from your travels!
Claire - I'm tagging you in addition to Aimee's tag because I care. Plus, your last entry was titled "Silence" and I don't want it anymore.

Sweet. Mercy. I just laughed my head off while reading your 7 things. Best post ever. Hands down! I was also reminded how similar we are in our marriages...cover stealing, anal bed making, etc. Thanks for the shout out. :) Love you!!
