My friend Marisa tagged me last week for my very first tag. Here are seven random things about me:

1. I don't prefer carbonated beverages and dislike cola. I will only occasionally drink Sprite, if I'm nauseous.

2. My sheets have to be perfectly smooth and tucked in tight when I go to bed at night. If the sheets are wrinkly around my feet, I feel like it tickles my toes!

3. I love onion rings, but don’t like onions. I hate raw onions on a sandwich and pick the onions out from fajita platters. My family laughs at me when we go to Frisch’s because I often order a patty melt no onions & an order of onion rings.

4. I have a diamond shaped cataract in one eye.

5. I hate the sound of clipping fingernails & toenails. It’s like nails on a chalkboard for me and just makes me cringe!

6. I hum a lot and often don't even realize when I am humming. As my husband pointed out when we were dating, I hum on my inhale breaths as well as when I am exhaling. I didn't even realize that wasn't normal!

7. I hate the single bathrooms in public places without stalls. I cringe every time I head to bathroom and find one. I end up double checking that the door is completely closed & the lock is properly engaged. If I hear the door knob jiggle, I get a nervous flitter in my stomach. I just hate the feeling that someone might possibly walk in on me!

I tag: Brook, Angela, Andrea, Emily, Carrie, Shannon, and Jen!

Hi Amber! Thanks for the tag...I had fun! I also really enjoyed reading your answers. Your onion story cracks me up! Hope you guys are doing well. I continue to pray for you both!

Liz said...

Me too! I hum at work all the time, my bosses think I'm nuts. :)

Hi! It is so fun to read these. I have to have the sheets just right too or I don't sleep well! :) Thanks for the tag!

well I have to say I thought I knew everything there was to know about you, but your fear of public single bathrooms is a new one to me! Hmmm, guess you really do learn something new every day, funny thing is, I really don't like those either! Like Mother, like daughter ;0) and just for the record dear you have diamond shaped cataracts in BOTH your eyes!!!!

Fun post!
I, as well, like onion rings but not onions. Do you actually pull the onion out of the ring? I do, because if I get that crunch in my mouth from an onion it just gags me. :-)
BUT, I think it's Ruby Tuesday that has onion straws. Now those are yummy...

Hi Amber,
I found you through Julia's Hooked on Houses tour today.
I love the old Victorians you posted about. I am restoring an Old Victorian and getting ready to choose a color for the outside.
So I was in heaven.
Thanks for the inspiration
