38 at 38

Today is my 38th birthday, so I thought I'd make a list of 38 random things about me that people may or may not know. 
  1. I love having long hair, but I hate the time it takes to actually do something with it, so it's usually in a ponytail or a messy bun.
  2. I highly dislike politics.
  3. I am on medication for high blood pressure...thanks, Dad!
  4. I love mashed potatoes.
  5. Counted cross stitch and scrapbooking are my favorite hobbies, although I haven't done much scrapbooking in the past few years.  I have more supplies for both than I will ever be able to use in my lifetime.
  6. I love to make lists, any kind of lists.  Grocery, inventory, to-do....
  7. I still call Argyle "home," even though I haven't lived there since 1996.
  8. I can't remember the last time I slept through the night.
  9. I have 3 tattoos and want at least 2 more.  I want a Celtic Tree of Life and a ladybug.
  10. I would much rather text people than actually talk on the phone.
  11. I love flannel sheets.
  12. I love Coke, especially from McDonald's.
  13. I wish I was a better photographer.
  14. I am addicted to reality television.  And not just the game-show types.  I like ones like American Pickers, Flip Men, and Auction Hunters too.
  15. I cry over stupid commercials and TV shows.
  16. I hate being cold, but I dislike being hot even more.
  17. I take super-hot, extra-long showers.
  18. I am a huge procrastinator.
  19. I hate wearing shoes.
  20. I believe in psychic mediums.
  21. I am in the process of starting my own business, Personally Yours by Tasha.
  22. Target and Wegmans are my favorite stores.
  23. I don't go anywhere without my cell phone.
  24. I listen to talk radio all the time.
  25. I eat some kind of chocolate almost every day.
  26. I have to most amazing best friend, and even though we live over 400 miles apart, we talk (via text) pretty much every day.
  27. My toenails must be painted at all times, usually some bright, crazy color that I wouldn't dare wear on my fingernails.
  28. I wear contacts, and have for 20 years.  I'd love to have laser vision correction done, but I'm too chicken!
  29. I make a wish when I see that it's 11:11 on the clock.
  30. I can't watch scary movies.
  31. I love the sights and smells of fall.
  32. I need to lose about 25 pounds.
  33. Purple tulips are my favorite flowers.
  34. I wish I could bake like my Gramma Sibyl.
  35. I have a horrible singing voice, so I only sing in the car when I'm alone or when I'm with Brynn.
  36. I am a very disorganized person.
  37. The sound of someone grinding their teeth is equivalent to nails on a chalkboard to me.
  38. When I was younger, 38 seemed old.  Now that I'm 38, it doesn't seem so bad.  I am blessed with a wonderful daughter, a great family, and amazing friends.  I can't wait to see what this year has in store for me!

  1. Well..hello! I haven't "seen" you in years. :). i love this list, and I think it took courage. Yikes, could I do that?

    So, you hate being hot but you take really hot showers???? lol.

    1. I know, I hate being hot but love hot showers...kind of contradictory, huh? I'm weird like that! This list took longer to put together than I thought it would, but glad I did it. There were some things I thought about putting on there that were just a little too personal for the general public.
