My fat Frank

*25 Random Things* - Updated

Soooo...I know I haven't posted in a really long time, still waiting for the original purpose of my blog. But, anyways, I was on Facebook today and stumbled on a "note" I wrote over 2 years, and realized, wow how things have changed. So I'm going to post the original note and comment on each (maybe) of the 25 bullet points. The note was called 25 Random Things, and now here is 25 Random Things updated:

Rules: Once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with
25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end,
choose 25 people to be tagged. (or if you are like me, less) You have
to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it's because I want
to know more about you.
(To do this, go to "notes" under tabs on your profile page, paste
these instructions in the body of the note, type your 25 random
things, tag 25 people (in the right hand corner of the app) then click

1. I went to college for almost three years as an education major and realized I hated it and changed my major to Accounting. - I then pursued a Masters in Business Administration and graduated in November, 2010. 

2. I graduated with my bachelors degree in December from UNC Charlotte and currently work at an accounting firm doing income taxes...and I LOVE it! :-) - I still do taxes on the side but my full time job is SUNY Fredonia's Revenue Accountant and I LOVE it! :-) Happy my years of education is paying off!

3. I have lived in the state of North Carolina for over 3 years and absolutely love it, I can't think of anywhere else I'd rather live... - I have now lived in Fredonia, NY for over a year now. I am happier here than I was in NC, although I do miss the NC winters and some of the greatest friends I'll ever know <3 

4. Except, I've always wanted to live in NYC for a year just to experience the craziness! - Yup, still want that! Really need to take a trip out there, I haven't been in years! 

5. I got married to my best friend on July 5, 2008 and it was a giant party and the best day of my life! - Yup, 3 years later and I love Casey more and more every day <3

6. I want to be a mommy within the next two years and am deathly afraid that I'll have something wrong with me and it won't happen :-( - Well that obviously didn't happen as this original posted was done on Feb 1, 2009. And my fear did come true as we have been struggling for over a year to get pregnant! 

7. Casey and I want to have a set of twins...first! Unfortunately twins do not run in either side of our family :-( - Still want twins, and going through infertility treatments has greatly increased our chances of twins, but hopefully no more than twins!

8. I love all 6 of my pets: Hopper, Ali, Sadie, Norman, Bentley & Mini Goat :-) - I still love all my pets but there have been some changes. Hopper passed on 3/2/11 due to cancerous tumors that just ate away at him, I miss him and think about him every single day. Bentley disappeared not long after the original post was done, we think Norman may have been behind it! Haha. Mini Goat lives with a family in Cherry Creek, but will likely be going to a new family soon because we can't have her here in Fredonia. We have two other cats, Frank & Ethel. 

9. I knew I would marry Casey very soon into our relationship...that's why I moved down to NC with him after only being together for 6 mos. - Best decision I ever made!

10. Even though I hate the cold, I miss NY very much...it's mainly because all of my family is there, I wish they would just move down to NC - Still bitch about the cold, but happy to be back, wouldn't trade it for the world, love being around our families. 

11. I love to fly in planes, even though I'm afraid of heights. - Still true although the last couple times I've flown, I've gotten more nervous, not sure why! 

12. I'm very much afraid of water...I can't tube or ski behind a boat even though it looks like fun...I tried last summer and almost had an anxiety attack because I was afraid of drowning (even though I was very a life vest)...weird I know - Still very true! Scares the shit out of me!!

13. Casey and I have owned our own house for over 2 years...this makes me feel very accomplished at only 22 years old. - We owned our NC house for 3 and 1/2 years and sold it to our great friends, Chad & Kristina last June. We now own our house in Fredonia as of this year :-) 

14. I love going to the gym and kickboxing is my new found glory :-) - Still love going to the gym, don't do many classes because of how the classes interfere with work, so I mostly use the elliptical, treadmill, and my bicycle. 

15. I have approximately 10 bikinis...bikini season is very long down here and you have to be prepared :-) hehe - Still have a bunch of bikinis, but have only worn 2 of them this summer!

16. I own over 50 pairs of shoes and 30 pairs of jeans. - Still true, still addicted to both...plus purses!! 

17. I have a hard time getting rid of things, I wonder..."what if I want to wear this again, or what if I might need this?" - It's much easier getting rid of clothes and stuff I don't use being around my Sister's, they love the stuff I give them. I like getting rid of other stuff now to help the needy. 

18. I am addicted to shopping...and I honestly can't help it! - Tee-hee-hee :-) 

19. I love my husband very much and cannot wait to see what the future holds for us. - Still excited to know what our future will hold!

20. I laugh at almost everything and almost always have a smile on my face :-) - Mostly true, unless I'm super stressed!!

21. Do not ask me what I think about a movie because I will most likely love it and then when you watch it and hate it, you will blame me :-) ...theres not many movies I don't love pretty much only war movies and zombie movies - Still true, I'd make a horrible movie critic!

22. I love to play guitar hero on our wii - Played with Brandy a few weeks back and had a blast! 

23. I'm recently obsessed with the twilight series and am pretty sure I'll cry when I'm done with the fourth book :-( - I did cry when I was done with the 4th book. I'm constantly reading, purchasing my Nook Color was such a great investment!! 

24. I am thankful every day for my friends and my family, I don't know what I would do without them - They mean the world to me!

25. I love almost every kind of music except metal. - Pretty much true!!
