Jenny of Chandelier Jenny did this on her blog and I couldn't help but do one here too!
I occasionally stutter and stammer. Sometimes I do this when I'm nervous or if I'm talking fast. I have to stop and take a breath before I continue.
I'm messy. My car and my bedroom are usually a bit of a mess. This is something that I've been trying to work on, and when I move I'm not taking half of the stuff I own. The less I have the less mess I can make! My room isn't too terribly bad right now, but it's certainly not clean.
I sketch. This is something that I've kind of let go of, but that I really really must get back into. Perhaps I'll start back up again and turn it into a weekly blog feature :) You can see an example on Flickr here. It's the last thing I sketched and it's been way too long!
I make a lot of my own bath and body stuff. I love handmade soaps and don't buy bar soap anymore. It's fun and the lather is so much better! Bath salts are fun to make too, and I have soooo much of it right now. I promise to share recipes soon!
I'm a major dork. If you were to walk into my bedroom one of the first things you'd notice is that I have a lifesize standup of Han Solo. I love Han Solo!
Feel free to do this on your blog! Leave a comment if you do, I'd love to read five facts about you!
I love reading the answers to little surveys and tid-bits from other people so I couldn't pass up the opportunity to do this one when I read it on Caitlin's blog To Make Love Stay! Be sure and check hers out! Feel free to do it on your blog as well and leave a link in the comments section! I'd love to read 10 Facts About YOU! :)
I've decided to grow my hair out reealllly long again. I haven't had long hair since high school! Back then it was all the way down to my waist...and then I chopped it off and just haven't been able to keep myself from chopping chopping chopping every time is starts getting close to my shoulders. I am determined this time though to grow it out! I would LOVE to have hair like this:
So I can do things like this:
I haven't had my hair cut in a couple of months and it's beginning to take on the 'justin bieber' look...with a mini ponytail at the back...yeah it doesn't sound like a good look does it? :) Sooooo...this is the plan:
And then I'll just keep growing it out from that point with trims every now and then :) My hair is really thick and when it's long it's also very wavy-it's going to be so pretty!!! Wish me luck on my super long hairgrowing journey...it's going to take FOREVER!!!
