Ten...

Here are some very interesting (to hubs & my parents at least) facts that make me, well little old me!!! Hope you have as much fun reading them as I did writing them out...

01. My favorite ice cream for as long as I can remember has always been mint chocolate chip... I was never a vanilla or chocolate girl and I'm not sure what possessed a two year old me to want to try the green ice cream... that was an early sign, I would be different ;)

02. I am an avid list maker... before I can get anything done, I like to compile in neat little list in bullet format of all the tasks ahead... my favorite part of course, is crossing things off... and I have been known to add things Ive already done to a list, just to be able to cross them off...

03. My dancing career started when I was so inspired at my cousin's ballet recital that I knew I just had to join in right then and there... and so I did... I ran on stage during her performance and started doing my own dance... I was three!!!

04. I am not so secretly obsessed with FRIENDS... I own the complete series box set... can recite just about all the lines... use the show like a kid uses their security blanket... and have often related any and all of my life's scenarios to an episode... I'm also a Monica...

05. People think I am everything but Hispanic... I am 50% Cuban, 50% Peruvian, and was born in Miami... Spanish was my first official language... and Ive been mistaken for Indian, French, Arabic, Italian... and just about anything else that has dark hair, brown eyes, and olive skin...

06. I am always hungry it seems... no matter what time of the day it is, I'm usually munching on something... and I can get very cranky if I don't get food fast enough sometimes... so I tend to carry snacks around in my purse... sometimes healthy, sometimes not so healthy...

07. I met hubs as a camp counselor one summer in the states... he is British and so we started dating long distance... for five years... then he proposed in a tree and carved our names into it... we now live on the other side of the pond and have been married for almost a year... he is my lobster!!!

08. Running has never been my thing... actually I have always hated it... which is why it shocked the hell out of all of my friends and family when I announced I was running a half marathon two years ago... I have now ran three... and I now consider myself a runner...

09. I can touch the tip of my tongue to my nose and have broken my arms three times... not in any way related but equally as weird...

10. Cleaning and organizing are my thing... I do it when I'm bored... when I'm stressed... when I'm sad... and especially so when I'm procrastinating, which almost always... there's just something about doing mindless tasks that work like therapy for me... I told you I am a Monica!!!
