I was tagged by Julie 1 month ago!

You can tell how well I stay on top of this whole blogging thing! Julie tagged me a month ago.....share 7 random facts about myself. So, here they are:

1. I love oatmeal. I eat if for breakfast almost every day from September to May (I don't eat too many hot breakfasts in the summer). A lot of people don't like oatmeal at all or they just think it's okay. But I love it--maybe I get this from my dad!

2. I love Manhattan, New York. I first visited there when I was a freshman in college, and then Mandy and I spent the summer there a few years later. It is one of my favorite places I have been--I could live there. Don't worry everyone, it will never happen:)

3. I (like Mandy) organize my closet by sleeve length as well as by color. So all of my white short-sleeved shirts are together, then pink, then red, etc. Then there are my long-sleeved shirts color-coded. Then my dresses. My skirts and dress pants are also organized by length and color in a separate closet. It just makes it so much easier to find what I'm looking for. I also have to have everything hanging on the hangers in the same direction!

4. I love working out. It's not something I do just to stay healthy and in shape (althought that is important) or because I feel like I have to be a role model in my career (which I do). But I really enjoy working out--running, lifting weights, sports, etc. I love it--call me crazy--Chad does!

5. I like math. I have always liked how numbers fit nicely into formulas and equations so you can solve them. Since I teach exercise science courses, I get to teach some statistics in my Tests & Measurements class, some physics in my Kinesiology class, and we work with lots of measurements and formulas in my Physiology lab. I enjoy things like doing our taxes and balancing our bank account (except when it's low!).

6. I love to read. If I had the time, I could read for hours (which I do sometimes when I am on break). Of course it has to be an interesting book, but I probably enjoy reading much more than the average person. Even when I was in college and had a crazy school/work/social calendar, I was often at the public library. When Chad and I first moved to Caldwell, one of the first things we did was go to the public library to get library cards (not that Chad really uses his;).

7. Chad and I were married on Friday the 13th! Some people think it's an unlucky day. Some people actually have a fear of Friday the 13th (paraskavedekatriaphobia). I have never believed it to be an unlucky day--probably because I'm not really superstitious. It has definitely proven to be a very lucky day for us!

I tag anyone who dares to share their secrets!
