100 Facts About Me Part 1

I am going to attempt to do this 100 Facts About Me thing being hosted by Megan.  I don’t know if I can even come up with 100 things, but I will try.  I am going to break it up into 4 posts.  I have not yet fully figured out how to break it up.  The first post will be general info about me!

1. I am the middle child.

2. I have 2 sisters.

3. I was raised by a working class dad and stay at home mom.

4. My parents are still happily married today!

5. I was raised Catholic.

6. I graduated from the University of Notre Dame.  (Yes I have a $200,000 brain and choose to stay home and wipe butts all day!)

7. Going to a Catholic college made me turn away from Catholicism.  I am now a practicing non-denominational Christian.

8. I have 8 aunts and 7 uncles that are living.

9. When my mom’s family gets together for holidays, we rent a place because there are at least 70 people!  This is just my aunts, uncles, and cousins.  No extended people beyond that!

10. Thing2 was born on March 10.  We got a phone call that day asking if we wanted to be presented to his mother as a possible adoptive family.  Clearly, we said yes!

11. March 11 we got a phone call that we had been selected to be parents to Thing2!

12. If money was not an issues, I would have at least 6 kids.

13. March 13, Thing2 was placed in my arms by his NICU nurse.  He was discharged to us later that day.

14.  March 14, Thing2’s birth mom signed away her rights and we knew he was really ours!

16. I have one living grandparent.  He is turning 80 next month and is in great health!

17. I have 2 nephews.

18. I have 6 nieces.

19. I will have a new niece or nephew in September!

20. Thing1 was born on July 20.

22. I was 15 when I started dating Armydad.

23. Armydad proposed to me on December 23.

  1. Haha I have the same situation with my family politically.

    That’s cool you went to Notre Dame! I have some friends that are graduating from there this spring 🙂 I went to Saint Louis University and had a similar experience with religious views after college. While I wasn’t Catholic to begin with, I learned a lot more about Catholicism when I went there and had a better understanding of my own faith, which is similar to yours.

    Great facts! Can’t wait to see the rest!

  2. It’s been so fun to read your facts! I too lean towards the liberal side of the road, but my friends and family are very mixed. I mostly prefer to stay out of politics though!

    Looking forward to seeing your next post 🙂

  3. Ummmm, you probably didn’t need to mention you were Catholic. Your family size and number of aunts and uncles gave it away. (And all you out there – that’s no slam on Catholics… I am one!)

    I thought you have me beat by one on number of nieces and nephews! But we’re tied! My #9 is a bun in the oven right now too! I hope it’s another nephew – so I can claim two to my 7 nieces!
