29.. (because apparently i can’t come up with 50)… things about me.

  1. My full first name is Mindy, not Melinda
  2. It kind of annoys me when people ask me if my first name is Melinda, I’m not sure why.. but it does.
  3. I love show tunes – Wicked, Spamalot and Cabaret are my current obsessions. Current means.. for the past 3 or more years… apparently.
  4. I like to write/type [… ] this generally means there is a pause in how I speak … but not necessarily a comma (although sometimes it’s in lew of a comma)
  5. My husband is my bestest friend in the whole wide world. We love, we fight, we laugh – it’s good. Oh and he’s the best dad – it’s so fun to watch.. and he makes me laugh.
  6. I need to learn to focus on the positive more. I lecture hubs about doing this all the time.
  7. I love to decorate – but have no idea where to start – get tired and have empty walls. I am lazy
  8. I desire to make pretty things and get paid for it. I desire to make happy things and feel fulfilled in my career.
  9. I am a foodie. I love to eat, I love to cook and I LOVE COOKBOOKS
  10. I wish someone would hire me to design cookbooks. (Ideally from home)
  11.  I think I’m funny
  12. I have always wanted someone to call me a half pint. This will never happen. I am not half nor a pint
  13. I have favorite bad words. I say them often. I have been working on getting better at this. F.
  14. I miss Charlie, my beloved black lab, every day.
  15. I get excited for fall. I love back to school shopping – all I want to do right now is go buy new pens, sharpees, and a few new outfits … and have my mom pay for them.
  16. There is a purse that I want, and since finding it, I have thought about every day. It’s $268 and made by Dooney and Burke. The most expensive purse I have ever owned was $32.50.
  17. Learning to be content in the now is not easy for me.. I have not learned how to do that.
  18. Favorite bands include: Barenaked Ladies, Train, Counting Crows, Maroon 5
  19. My perfect (non-fall) Saturday includes breakfast (simple and easy), good coffee, farmer’s market, nap, play time (in water?) with Alex, drinks, grilling and dessert with hubs, bird and stew.
  20.  My favorite Fall Saturday includes breakfast, good coffee, Columbia, Les bourgeois, tropical liq, football game (past me would scoff at this for sure!), dinner and home in bed
  21.  I love mail
  22.  I am unorganized – but wish I wasn’t – but not sure how to fix it.
  23. One day, I would like to own a little shop – I would sell some personalized stationary, invitations, some home décor, a book or two – and probably have a little coffee nook. This has been my dream for as long as I can remember. Sometimes it was just a book store, just a stationary store or just a coffee shop – but all together is the ultimate.
  24. I am obsessed with magazines
  25. I like to day dream
  26. Captain A has been my most fun adventure. He’s the best, most fun, hilarious 18 month old on the planet
  27. I do not particularly care for the furry things that live with us.. and I am a huge pet lover. These 2 dogs do nothing for me though – it’s sad
  28. I love to eat out. I have been craving sushi and bogey’s for a week now.
  29. I need a better camera
