Under The Tree-June

If you have lost a child and have not yet red about Under The Tree you can do so here.

This month is a little different. Instead of focusing on grief, it will be more of a 'get to know you' kind of thing. So here are some likes and dislikes and a little more about me.

Hair Color: My natural color is blonde. When I was younger I had white-blonde hair. As I've gotten older my hair has gotten darker. Now it's more of a light brown.

Eye Color: Hazel. I love my color of hazel.

Profession: Nuclear Medicine Technologist. It's just one of the modalities in Radiology.

Relationship Status: Married

My Favorites

Color: It's always been blue. My room when I lived with my parents was nothing but blue. I've become more fond of other colors as the years have passed, like green.

Movie: Facing the Giants and Fireproof. I love them!

Animal: Dog. I love dogs. They have such personalities and give you so much affection.

Store: I don't do a lot of shopping. I don't have a favorite that I just have to go to. It used to be American Eagle back in the day but I don't think their clothes are all that great now.

Childhood Memory: I always enjoyed going to my friend Autumn's grandma's house. A bunch of us would stay there and we'd make up stuff and play weird games. Always a great time. I remember one time in high school I drove around the block in my Jimmy with my friend Denise riding on top of it. lol

Hobby: I like to scrapbook but there's not a lot of time for it. I enjoy reading too!

Song/Singer: I love Jeremy Camp!!!! I really like Matthew West too.

Book/Author: Oh my gosh. I love Twilight!! *drool* Yep, I'm one of those. The Host is Awesome too.

School Subject: I've always had a love with Science. If it's science-related then I am there!

Vacation Destination: Hawaii hands down. I've been there 5 times and I plan on going again. We've went there since I was little and on our last trip Carleigh was still with us and that just makes it extra special.

Food: Anything that's a carb. Does that count? lol I am a bread person. :)

Restaurant: Cheddar's or Red Lobster. I always get a virgin strawberry daiquiri at Cheddar's. It's awesome.

This or That

Coke or Pepsi: Neither. They're both gross. Odd flavors in my opinion.

Beer or Wine: Neither. They're both gross. I don't drink.

Coffee or Tea: Neither. They're both gross. Period.

Apple Juice or OJ: Neither. They're both gross, but a little less gross then those mentioned above. I'd drink them if I was thirsty enough. Do you see a pattern here? I either drink water or organic milk. Occasionally I will have a pop but not that often. It's either a Sierra Mist or IBC root beer. I consider it a treat.

Summer or Winter: Summer because I get cold easily. I love feeling the warmth of the sun on my skin.

Cats or Dogs: Dogs. I am so not a cat person. Wretched cats poop in my flower beds.

Salty or Sweet: I'd much prefer SOUR.

Boat or Plane: I guess I'd say plane because it could get me to where I'm going faster. I don't have a problem with either.

Morning or Night: I am a morning person and always have been. I cannot stay up late at all. But of course I get up at 3:30 am almost every day!

Money or Love: Love. If you have money and no love than that is a sad life.

Breakfast or Dinner: This is a hard one! I like both meals but breakfast is the most important meal of the day they say.

Forgiveness or Revenge: Forgiveness. I feel no need to ever get revenge. I'll leave that to God, thank you.

House or Apartment: House. It's bigger and I can choose to have no neighbors right next to me making loud noises at all hours of the night. Yeah, a house sounds much nicer.

Like to cook: Well, my hubby cooks more than me. We eat on the grill a lot and that's his area. Plus, he took over a lot of things when I was on bed rest with Kyndra and cooking was one of them.

Have you ever

Got a speeding ticket: Yes. I was going 79 in a 65. This was back in my college days. My friend and I were driving back to Findlay from Polaris in Columbus.

Wished you were someone else: Not really. I like who I am.

Cried during a movie: Of course.

Describe yourself in one word: Compassionate

Biggest fear: Losing someone I love for all eternity. This is why I pray that all come to know Jesus Christ and follow Him. I want to be able to see them again.

Biggest mistake: Not keeping Jordan. I will always regret that for all my life.

Your proudest accomplishment: My children. Nothing I've done could be better than them.

Dream job: I'm already living my dream job as a Nuc Med Tech. It's something I was set on doing since I was a sophomore in high school. I've never regretted it. I love it!

Special Talents: I always considered myself good at playing the clarinet back in the day. It's been a long time though. I think I was pretty decent at sports too. Those are pretty common talents. A weird talent is my thumbs can bend back in a very odd way. Naturally, too, without even trying. It's rather kind of freaky.

Where would you rather be at the moment: In my bed napping. I would love a nap. A nice, long one.

Famous person you want to meet: I really have no desire to meet any celebrities whatsoever.

Song to be played at your funeral: I like Wish You Were Here by Mark Harris

I hate it when cats poop in my flower bed too...and what's with the spooky way they look at you like they know something? (OOPs...sorry the cat fear is creeping up again!) I love carbs, too (Doritos included of course!). It's so awesome that you already work at your dream job! Cheddar's sounds good to of my favorites. You cracked me up with being all grossed out by the drinks mentioned. So healthy! =) I think compassionate is the perfect word to describe you...and so many of us are blessed because you are.

Love you...

My dad has hazel eyes, I just love them. Fireproof is awesome. I have the journel to start but keep putting it off. Okay, sour like Sour Patch Kids, I love them. It was nice getting to know these things about you. Take care & God Bless.

I enoyed getting to know you better! Yes, you are VERY compassionate. I like Red Lobster and Cheddar's, too. As for milk, I had to drink goat's milk as a baby and when Mama took the bottle away, I did not, and never have, liked milk since. I do like the things you think are yucky. except alcohol. I don't drink.Got my gift today and I am SO proud of it. Thanks! Sarita

LOL at *drool* So many people use that word when they describe the Twilight series! I must start reading!

I love that you hate all those drinks!

I just remembered I have something for you! I will drop you an email now.

My love to you and thanks for taking part!

Thanks for sharing! I have hazel eyes also. I hate tea and coffee also, but I do like pop. I think that compassionate is the perfect word for you!
