Thankful Thursday

Because we all have something to be thankful for...

I'm thankful for new friends that I have met in the blogging community. I "met" Jamie through the SITS 31 Days to a Better Blog Challenge and we became blog buddies. Jamie is currently training to run her first marathon {not half, but a FULL marathon} that takes place next month. I'm taking away a lot of great advice through Jamie's blog, so if you are a runner, or want to be a runner, go check her out! 

Anyway, Jamie tagged me in a post a couple of weeks ago and I am just now sitting down to respond. {I'm such a bad blog buddy. Sorry Jamie!} Here are the rules:

1. Post these rules.
2. You must post 11 random things about yourself.
3. Answer the questions set for you in their post.
4. Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
5. Go to their blog and tell them you’ve tagged them.
6. No stuff in the tagging section about you are tagged if you are reading this. You legitimately have to tag 11 people.

11 Random Things About Me:
1. I was born during an ice storm.
2. I am deathly afraid of snakes and sharks.
3. My favorite flavor of ice cream is mint chocolate chip.
4. I have only received one detention in my entire school career. It was for forgetting a pencil on the second day of school in 6th grade World Geography. {I'm such a rebel}
5. I'm ambidextrous. I mainly use my right hand, but I catch myself randomly switching to my left hand {expect when I write}.
6. I played the flute and piccolo in middle school and haven't touched it since
7. I have always wanted a large family {3+ kids}. We currently have two sons and plan to adopt in the near future.
8. My favorite color is sapphire blue.
9. I am married to my high school sweetheart.
10. I was a cheerleader throughout middle school and high school and almost cheered in college, but changed my mind once I got there.
11. I don't have a facebook account. {I did, but deleted several months ago after they published all of my phone contacts onto my MIL's facebook page.}
