100th Post

Oh my gosh, I can't believe it's my 100th post! I feel like I should do something fun for this post...how about 100 random facts about me?

Nah. I'm not that interesting a person. Better make it 10 facts.

10 Random Facts about Lindzee

1. My name is really Lindzee Armstrong, but my first name isn't legally spelled L-i-n-d-z-e-e. That particular spelling I came up with in 5th grade, because it would "look cooler on bookshelves." (Seriously, that was my reasoning back then.) Anyway, I fell in love with the spelling and it stuck! My parents spell it that way, I sign things that way, and it was even like that on my wedding invitations. But I've never changed it legally.

2. My favorite color is pink. I love it. Like LOVE LOVE LOVE it. Kind of a cliche, but it's an awesome color, so I don't care. It's gotta be a bright pink, though. None of these pastel/rose/blush hues of pink.

3. I've been to 11 countries outside of the United States, and I've been to 35+ states. I don't know an exact state count because we traveled a lot when I was a baby too, and my parents don't always remember if I was with them. I adore traveling, and have been very blessed to do a lot of it. My all-time favorite place I've been is Paris.

4.  I graduated from college with my associates degree a full 5 months before graduating from high school. This got a lot of eye raises when people read over my resume at job interviews.

5. I've never kissed anyone but my husband.

6. I'm obsessive about alphabetizing things...books, movies, etc. My fiction books are all alphabetical by the last name of the author, then by the title within that author.

7. I have to have the clothes all facing the same way on their hangers or I lose my mind.

8. I LOVE chocolate. Probably even more than I love the color pink. I think that defiling chocolate with nuts should be a crime punishable by vegetables. You know those girls who are really really really crazy about chocolate? Times that by a zillion and you've got me. Except for white chocolate. Because that's not even real chocolate.

9. I really don't like nature. Or dirt. Or bugs. Or anything outside, really. My idea of "nature" is green concrete. I'm really a city girl at heart.

10. I always thought I'd grow up to be a high school English teacher, but after watching the movie National Treasure in junior high, I realized I loved history enough to double major. When hubby and I got engaged, we decided in the interest of starting a family I should pick one major or the other. I ended up adoring history and not really digging English, so I dropped the English major and stuck with history. I've never regretted it either!
