25 Things you don't know about me!

I wasn't going to do this post because after reading my mom's, I thought there was no way I could come up with 25 things you don't know about me. So I commented on my moms and went to bed. All of a sudden my mind just started ticking with things I would post if I were to do this and I HAD to get out of BED and start making a list so I wouldn't forget anything by TODAY!! Therefore, you have this post:
25 Things you don't know about me!
( I fully expect my immediate family to know all these things, so they don't count)
  1. I LOVE horror movies.
  2. I've seen physical evidence of Big Foot and I BELIEVE!
  3. I was driving through Yellowstone National Park during the big fire in the 80's.
  4. I am a headbanger and LOVE the "hair bands" from the 80's. I've seen KISS, Bon Jovi, Def Lepard, and many other metal bands in concert.
  5. In High School, I won the Arian Award in band. It is awarded to the best band student and if you knew my band teacher you'd realize this was a true award because he was a trumpet player and very partial to the trumpets. So a trumpet player always won. I however, played the clarinet, but I won my Senior year and I even played a solo at our last band concert (Trumpeters always got the solos).
  6. I died giving birth to my first child: code blue and everything, they had to revive me. I saw "the light".
  7. When Garry and I were living at BYU, my brother and his friend came up to visit, they must have been around 12 and Garry and I took them to a gay theater in SLC to see the Rocky Horror Picture Show, not realizing it was a gay theater. It was sure fun!
  8. The first concert I ever went to was Night Ranger.
  9. I had all four of my kids naturally without drugs.
  10. I have killed an elk and a few deer and I've gutted and skinned several deer.
  11. I once ate a dog treat thinking it was beef jerky.
  12. In high school, jeans were popular and just starting to be worn by girls. I didn't want to be like everyone else though, so I wore a dress or skirt ALMOST every day to school just to be different.
  13. I drove a pea combine during the summer to make money for college. I drove the night shift and it was cold, nasty and ever so boring!!
  14. I've never had my wisdom teeth pulled.
  15. While still in high school, I went on a 25 mile 5 day hike into the High Lakes with my dad and 2 friends to be the first in my stake to earn my 5th year girls camp certification.
  16. I camped out all night to get Rick Springfield concert tickets.
  17. When we lived in Maryland I was hit by a semitruck in my little Subaru and ended up suing the company and winning $11,000. It provided our downpayment to buy our house we now live in.
  18. I got bucked off a horse and I'm pretty sure I broke my nose. It was swollen and purple for over a week.
  19. I used to eat chicken bones with my Grandpa every Sunday after Sunday dinner.
  20. Garry and I went camping on our honeymoon and my aunt and uncle and their 8 or so children were in the same campground and we spent most of our honeymoon trying to avoid them.
  21. When I was a teen, I wanted to marry a farmer and have 12 kids.
  22. I was babysitting my brother in my younger days and he was such a brat that I would have to chase him around the house with a butcher knife as a threat for him to be good.
  23. I am Switzerland, white, I want everyone to be happy. I hate conflicts and debates.
  24. My life long dream is to go on an Afican Safari.
  25. I hate to make dinner.

There you have it. I dare you to come up with 25, go ahead, give it a try!

Your list was fun! and, I don't think I knew about the $11,000 or the chasing with the butcher knife--yikes! You have had a great life! Everyone should try this--it's fun to relive memories, and everyone's list is so different!

Fun list.

I love this! You saw the light? I'm glad you didn't follow it! My sisters chased me with a knife when I wouldn't do the dishes--I was never that mean of a babysitter! So, you've dared us to come up with 25 things...this could cause me to do some deep thinking.

Amzing things that I'd never have guessed... headbanger & Kiss? Deer hunter? Saw the light? (I may use this as a blog topic as I saw no patent mark.. ha)
