Joining the zillions of others for...

1. Martin Luther King Day, 13 years ago, I got stuck in a baby swing. It involved jelly and the paramedics. Yes, this is real life. (You can read more about it here.)

2. If you give me a foot massage, I will give you my first born . . . or a hug.

3. I laugh and fart in my sleep. I also do these outside of REM. (I'm an over achiever like that.)

4. I'm terrified of bugs and the dark. (Yes, I'm 3 years old.) Bugs in the night? I might as well be on Fear Factor. Absolutely terrifying.

5. I'm obsessed with growing my hair out, which is a problem since it's as brittle as your grandmother's toenail. Since we've been married, I've only trimmed my hair and it's grown maybe three inches. (A year and a half people!) I spend an ungodly amount of money on conditioners and dry masks because one of them is bound to work, right?

6. I'm not a dog person. Crime, I know. Animals are fine and cute and whatever, but are they worth it? I mean, maybe some cute bundle of love will change my mind . . . one day. But until then, I refuse to allow a holy terror to poop in my house, jump on my guests, and demand all of my attention (Grahm does that enough!). Needy lil devils. And holy guacamole, they're expensive.

7. I've only kissed three boys. One of them is my husband. Am I boring grandma prude or what? (You're welcome, mom.) Maybe I should have been flapping my lips in the breeze willy nilly when I had the chance! Now these bad mammajammas are on lock down.

I hear you on the hair thing!! Last time I got a haircut (a real haircut) was June of 2010. It's not January 2013 and it's FINALLY down to about my shoulder blades in the back. Ridiculous.

And I'm totally with you on the dog thing, too. I do not like dogs. They stink, they slobber, they poop a lot, they're noisy, and they're time consuming. I'm pretty sure that makes me a blogger outcast, but whatever.

*NOW January 2013. Sheesh.

Suze said...

I'm trying to grow my hair out too. It's hard not to cut it!

And I agree with you about the dogs. I always think I want one, and then I go to my mom and dad's house. The have a lab puppy. No, thanks.

I must be a boring grandma prude too...haha. I've kissed only a handful and one of them is my husband and I'm pretty proud. That's a huge accomplishment these days. :)

Take Biotin for hair. It's a great vitamin for nail, skin, and hair! :)

Kim said...

I def remember reading about how you got stuck in a swing and I'm sorry I couldn't stop laughing! You crack me up!! Dito on bugs and the dark! Let's not mix the two of them please and thank you!

Sara said...

I have the same problem with my "luscious locks." So brittle...so dry...I can't do anything with them. That's why I am known as the ponytail goddess of the midwest. :-)

Sam said...

Girl, my hair is just like yours. I feel like I've been trying to grow mine out for 10 years and I still need weave. Hallelujah for weave!

Rachel said...

You are so hilarious, lady. So so funny. The foot rubs? I'm the same way. I melt like butter. My hair grows like a weed lately thanks to Biotin supplements. Have you tried those?? And I'm not a dog person either--gasp! Just don't have the time to dedicate to a creature that's going to eat my things and poop in my house. No ma'am. That pic of you and hubby is SO PRECIOUS. Love it. And you, duh!

Shay said...

You are the cutest. Except the farting- that's not so cute but since I am 5 I would laugh my bum off. And I have been trying to grow my hair since I was 9...when you find the secret that doesn't include extensions let me know!

CoastWithMe said...

I don't know what it is about farting that just sets me off....ever since i was a little girl.....it brings on uncontrollable laughter! I swear...your like my happy pill! I just need one dose of you every day and I'm set. I freaking love you girl! I'll give you a foot massage whenever you need one lol....just write a post for me in return:)!

CoastWithMe said...

sorry lol you're

Holly said...

New follower here! I really enjoyed getting to know a little bit about you and I love your complete honesty! I wanted to share with you a trick for hair growth -- my neice as alopecia (loss of hair on the body or head) and let me tell you she has seen many doctors. After numerous oils and lotions and conditioners and what not one doctor told her mom she was wasting her time and he told her a secret. Massage her head every day. A good 10-15 minute head massage will help stimulate the hair pores and it helps hair grow. I won't tell if you talk your hubby into massaging your head for double the time ;)

Helene said...

ohhh how i adore you. #1 is the best thing ever. ever. and foot massages kissing only 3 boys.

Lauren @ Love, Water and Wine said...

I want to grow my hair out too but it just WON'T. I have brittle and thin hair too and it's awful. Let me know if you ever find a miracle product!

You always make me laugh, Jena!!! I'm not a dog fan either, I think they are cute and all but at a distance and I figure with all the money and work involved you might as well have a baby!!!

Rod and Alex - aka: "Rolex" said...

My sister's hair is just like yours! Impossible to grow!
Oh girl, you need to get a dog--you'd hopelessly fall in love! Trust me!
