My First (and second) blog award.

Ok this is my first major blog fail….I think.

I received this award a few weeks ago from Bec at the i heart blog and on Thursday I got it from Jen at Hamster Central. So I guess I better get my butt in gear huh?

Here are 7 very random things about me

1. I’ve donated my hair to Locks of Love 3 times and I’m working on my 4th! I’ve donated 16, 12 and 10 inches.

This was the last time I donated in 2008.

2. I hate rooster decorations. It’s kind of an inside joke with Mark’s family now. Our house had rooster wall paper and it drove me nuts. I finally re painted and got rid of it but from then on every time we go shopping they point out every rooster. In fact look what ‘R’ got me for my birthday:

3. I where black ALOT its a part of my job we need to where dark contrasting colors. So every day I’m either wearing a black top or black pants to work.  ‘R’ once joked that it looked like I worked for a funeral home.

4. I have lived in 13 different houses/apartments and one hotel (my parents ran it) in 27 years. (No, I’m not an Army kid)

5. I went on a mission trip to Honduras and lived there for 3 months when I was just 16.

6.  The choice to make sign language my major in collage was a 2 min decision and it was one of the best ones I’ve ever made.

This is me after interpreting for Point of Grace.

7. I love Asian food here are some of my faves Beef and Potato (Vietnamese) Pad Thai (Thai) Kim chi, Bulgogi, ManduJapchae (Korean) So I guess its a good thing I married MAC (he is 1/2 Korean.)

  1. Locks of love…you know, I’ve always wanted to try doing that. Too bad I never knew about it when I lived in the US and I’m pretty sure they don’t have anything like that here in Japan.

    I think it’s amazing that you chose to major in Sign Language. So many people often choose to major in things that their families expect them to (like me) or they choose to major in something with the highest potential to earn money. You on the other hand, chose to do something that will help others and I think that’s awesome.

    I like Asian food too but I may be biased since I am Asian 🙂 Cute picture of you and your husband though 🙂
