Fun Fact Friday

I can not stand the feeling of a car going backwards down a hill.

I seriously freak out! (This also applies to roller-coasters that go backwards but I still think that a car is worse.) I can't take it when I'm the passenger or the driver. I'm not really sure why or when this dislike started but I'm getting the heeby-geebies just thinking about it.

Aaron finds this very amusing and likes to torture me with it. It was the worst when we took a trip to San Francisco. On almost every incline he would take his foot off the ignition for a couple seconds just to see me freak out. He is such a sweetheart ;-)

Okay, your turn! Tell me one of your fun facts!

I got a haircut!

It was way past due. The girl that I used to have cut my hair moved to Washington State about 1 1/2 years ago and I haven't had it cut since (well, except for some unfortunate cutting that I did on it when I was desperate for a trim).

Aaron noticed on Facebook a friend of his was offering haircuts and he jumped on it for me. I was really glad because I met this super cute girl and got a great hair cut!

Man, was my hair long! You don't get a picture of the back of your head very often.

Aura took a little length off and added in lots of layers. I really like it. What do you think?

The good news is... She will cut your hair too! Her prices are unreal (inexpensive) and she can either do it at her place or, get this, she will come to you! Not only does she cut hair she does color, highlights, perms, extensions, updos, threading, waxing, makeup, facials, nails, and massages. She does hair cuts for men/boys too. I really enjoyed how knowledgeable she is in all things hair. This girl knows what she is doing.

Fun Fact Friday

Hi Everyone! It's Friday!!!!! I got the idea to have a Fun Fact Friday from this cute blog. I think it is such a fun idea and I want to know some fun facts about you!

So, to start off I will share a fun fact about me and then you get to leave a comment about a fun fact about you.

I thought I would start with a very early in life fun fact.

I was walking by 7 months old
(taking first steps at around 6mo)

(already getting into trouble)

No crawling, just got up and started walking. Most of the time on my tip-toes. Those of you with kids are probably cringing a little bit imagining your 7mo old walking around. This fact actually scares me! I hope it's not a genetic thing because I know when I have kids I am going to be wanting them to just stay put for as long as possible- around 1 yr old sounds about right (actually 18 mo wouldn't even bother me).

I truly believe that this early walking led to the fact that as a little girl I was incredibly clumsy. I did a lot of walking and a LOT of falling down. I had continous scabs on my knees till I was probably about 7 years old. (Probably part of the reason I was put in ballet at 2yrs old.) To make things worse I wasn't a tough little girl either so each fall meant a full on melt down- my poor mom.

So, 20 years of ballet later, I pretty much have the walking thing down. I can even pull of graceful sometimes:)

How about you? Have any fun facts about yourself as a baby? Or, really any other fun fact you want to share.

I'm excited to hear them!

Yes, this did happen...

What do you get when grown men find fake mustaches at a bbq get together?

*No those mustaches are not photo shopped on*

(these pics are actually worth enlarging to get the full effect of the mustache art)

Aaron walked around this party speaking in Spanish- as in from Spain Spanish, with the lisp-all night.

I drew the line when he tried to kiss me with it on. It Tickled!

A beautiful blog post...

(I've been wanting to do a post about my friends blog for a couple of days now so here it is.)

I know most of you remember the give away that I did a couple of months ago for Rachel Gubler's new CD.

She has recently made a blog where she is writing some pretty cool posts. My favorite recently is that she is posting the stories behind the songs that she picked for her CD.

The first one is truly a story of trial and triumph with her sweet little girl that was very sick when she was born.

So check it out, leave a comment, add it to your blog list! I'm sure there will be more good blog posts to come!

Click here to check it out!

Thanks! Have a great weekend!
