10 things about me

1. I have the worst hand writing in the world. I write like a left handed little boy. This is an ongoing joke with my in laws cuz they write like angels. So if I ever write you a note don't judge.
2. I am single handedly trying to bring back the scrunchie, i love em. The are so perfect if you have thin, fine hair. The never pull. Plus American apparel sells them, so that means they are cool right? Who's with me on this?!! I am trying to recruit.
3. I much rather take a bath then a shower.
4. I am always cold. I can rock the heater in my car year round. This can be very annoying to anyone who has to ride with me. I also always take a blankie to the movies, it's like Antarctica in theaters.
5. Speaking of cars...I hate to drive. Hate it. if you love me, you will chauffeur me around.
6. I am kinda a slob. My house/car can get messy. My backyard looks like a million kids live here. I am really disorganized. This has not come in handy in dealing with Davy's medical stuff. Whatever, I'm working on it
7. I am pretty punctual. Except if it's a party involving my husbands extended family, cuz they are an hour(no joke) late to everything and there is nothing worse then sitting around and waiting for the party to start.
8. I am lifetime member at weight watchers....eww should I admit this? Oh well I just did.
I did WW to lose my baby weight after ollie and I liked the program. I am currently on it now. Let me know if you have any good recipes.
9. I have suffered with insomnia since I was a youngin. It sucks. I have tried pretty much everything and nothing works.
** My sis in law just reminded me about my shakey legs. Which kinda goes along with my insomnia. I shake my legs a lot. Especially when I am trying to fall asleep. When we are having a girls weekend, no one wants to sleep with me. But Scott likes it. He says It's like being rocked to sleep. I think he is just used to it.
10. I watch The bachelor pad. Judge if you want, this show is entertaining. Anybody else watching? Seriously guard and protect your heart Casey and cross eyed Vienna are wack-a-doo. Why are people not kicking them off?
Instead of a book club, I would love to start a bachelor pad club, where we would sit around and discuss play by play how crazy these people are. Wow, I have hit a new low.
For the record, I do love to read.
There you go, that's a little about me.

Loved your post Ruth, thanks for "keepin it real".
I love Bachelor Pad too. It's a pretty harmless guilty pleasure, right?

Amberly said...

I'm always cold too, need to be on time and bach pad is completely entertaining. Vienna and Casey are crazies and I don't know for the life of me why the rest of the lovlies don't get rid of them. love your honesty.

Nan said...

I caught bachelor pad last night. Jake is gross. Also #11 shakey leg.

I love scrunchees too, and those mini hair claw things. I didn't even know they were uncool till my sister filled me in. I'm totally in the Bring Back the Scrunchee Society.

Taylor said...

I just came across your blog a few weeks ago and I love it... first of all, my son is OBSESSED with YGG and I would like to say thank you because he was a bad baby and it was the only thing that made him stop crying. I might or might now have 42 episodes on my DVR. (we also just had an awesome ygg party for him when he turned 2 last week)

Secondly (and most important) is bachelor pad. What is wrong with these ppl that they don't kick out the crazies. I secretly love to hate Vienna but there is something disturbing about guard and protect casey. creeper. I like your blog even more after your list :)

I'd like to think, if we knew each other, that we'd be friends.

PS. I am in love with your daughter.

Genevieve said...

Wow! 10 for 10. Did we just become best friends!?

Julie said...

I hate to drive. Thought I was the only one.

kym said...

I tape Bachelor Pad for two reasons. 1. So I can FF through the commercials. 2. So I can watch it Tues morning after my husband leaves to go to work and dint have to hear him continually say, "i am getting dumber by the minute watching this!" Besides, it's late August, what else is left to watch until the new Fall season?
Scrunchies are a part of my daily wardrobe. I figure they can't be out of style that much because they are still MAKING them! You don't see Banana clips around these days...
And I always bring something when I go to the movies. Nothing worse than watching a movie you've been dying to see only to feel like your sitting in a Frigedaire.
Thanks for keepin' it real, yo!

Hi....I'm Georgia....and I'm a Lifetime Weight Watcher, too. LOL. Killer new recipe. Trader Joe's lentils (sold in their produce section), mixed with a jar of their bruschetta, then throw in some feta, and Whaaa-Laaaaa a delicous mix that is a great dip with crackers, its good on top of greens, its good rolled up in a wrap. Its just DELISH.

Mossi said...

RUTH! Why are we not watching Bachelor Pad together? I'm so in...

Sharla Watene said...

Ooops... that was Sharla not Mossi :)

Kate said...

I'm never cold, but I always bring a pair of big socks to the movies with me because the theaters are absolutely freezing! I loved your list.

Jen~ Lipstick and Laundry said...

AWESOME FYI... I too watch The Bachelor Pad... very entertaining, but my ears bled on Monday when Kasey SANG... oh have mercy...

Chantalle said...

Such a fun post! What was with the ending?? I think Jake goes crazy when he doesn't get the rose and starts 'taking people down with him' or whatever he said to the camera. And the mask swimming in the pool?? What was going on.
PS- Have you tried the WW black bean brownies? My friend made them for a church event and didn't tell us till we had eaten them. They were dense and yummy!

Debby said...

Did you know that they are trying to take cursive writing out of schools......so I hope you like to print, hah.
Yeah, scrunchies......I used to have so many.
Check your thyroid since you are cold so much.

our big bus said...

I love your List....thank you for being real...So much sounded like me now I can feel Normal again. I love your blog. No TV over here, but my kids loved YGG when we did.

tesla nichole said...

Ruth, I have a scrunchie in my hair now, my hand writing sucks and I LOVE Bachelor Pad too :D

'It's Guard and Protect time... Are you ready?' Bahahaha, loser.

Chez Zizi said...

Cute post. My husband's cousin has something like that, she shakes her leg and has insomnia I think she called it restless leg syndrome or something like that. Hey, if anything it helps rock you to sleep.

katie said...

look, girl. i've got a master's in american lit, a house full of books, and a heavy list of books to buy on my nook, but i'd put it all away in a second to watch bachelor pad. heaven on earth. i'm right there with you!

Jessica Crozier said...

Re: scrunchies. I have thin fine hair too. I could use some pizazz to this lifeless mop I call hair.
Re: Davy's meds. It's on my mental to-do list to do a post about how I keep Emma's meds organized. I like my system.
Re: Bachelor Pad. I'm still trying to figure out why/how Jake went home and not Casey. His voice is soooo annoying. Casey and Vienna def win for wackadoodle annoying couple.
Great post! :-)

Beth said...

Love this post...for someone who has known you longer than anyone. (Since the day you were born)
Your list is very acurate. Funny how the same we are but yet so different, even though we came from the same place. I hate to drive, have even worse handwriting, cannot sleep, LOVE baths and reading, but I am always hot and am a little crazy about cleaning and oraganizing. Windex is my best friend. I cannot watch the Reality TV you watch.


You could add how you LOVE going to the movies, (even by yourself) shopping for the best bargains and are pretty hip (Is that the right word or is the word cool?)

Love you baby sister : )

NailNewbie said...

I always Knew I had a taller and prettier twin. Glad to finally meet you.

Ora said...

Ruthie... we must be cut from the same cloth! It's good to hear I'm not the only TV junkie, cold, up all night, restless legger around!

greta ott said...

hi! I am a long time reader..and new commenter, but I had too, because I think we are soul mates!
of you 10 shares, nine of yours would be exactly mine, except for the disorganized part, I am a bit of a neat freak...but the rest...kinda creepy.

Red She Said said...

If you are being totally serious about the Bachelor Pad club, I am soooo in!!!!

Cathy Woodruff said...

Are we sisters or what.... except for being on time thing....

Hi, I'm Amy said...

You're hilarious! I hate driving too. I always make my husband drive & whenever I complain about his driving he threatens to stop chauffeuring me around. :)

P.S. It was really fun hanging out with you at Kim's baby shower!
