20 Things From My Twenty Years of Existence
Today I turn TWENTY. Time has flown by. I thought I’d share a few little details about me and the past 20 years of my life.
You may or may not know that…
ONE: I wrote two books before the age of ten. Both are unpublished, of course, but my 10 year old self is still proud. lol I’ve always loved writing.
TWO: My most ordered meal is a Caesar Salad.
THREE: I love Stevie Wonder. When I was really little I was convinced he’d sing at my wedding one day. We shall see.
FOUR: The only person who can quote You’ve Got Mail more than me is my brother Jared. Best movie ever.
FIVE: I don’t watch very much TV. With one exception… I’ve seen every episode of Gilmore Girls at least a few hundred times. Same goes for my mom and brother. It’s a family thing.
SIX: I love buying gifts for people! It’s just fun. I like to listen to what people are saying and then find ways to bless them with surprise gifts.
SEVEN: I buy more books then I do anything else.
EIGHT: My favorite things to buy myself are purses and books. They go well together don’t you think?
NINE: May is, of course, the best month of the year. For me, it’s filled with countless birthdays including my parents, close friends, family members and my own. I get specific reasons to celebrate a ton of people in my life who I love. It’s also the start of summer which brings with it cherry and blueberry picking.
TEN: My most ordered Starbucks drink is a Venti Iced Black Coffee with one pump of Vanilla and zero cream. Mmm
ELEVEN: My favorite place to visit is Bethel Church in Redding. Redding is nice too but Bethel is like the spiritual Disneyland to me.
TWELVE: I get wicked motion sick which means no roller coasters, no theme parks, no fast cars, no spinning in my chair, etc. lol But I’m convinced God is going to heal me of that. Then I will go to Disneyland to celebrate.
THIRTEEN: I am a loyal Orbit gum chewer. There is no other gum for me. I go through one to two packs a week. We have a bowl filled with packs of gum in our kitchen right now. Why have a bowl full of candy when you can have gum?
FOURTEEN: I’m a baker. Nothing fancy I just really love to bake. Not because I like spending forever in a kitchen a midst the flour and sugar mess but I love to feed people. Even more so then I love to bake.
FIFTEEN: I’ve started two business. One was meant for a short season while I was in high school and did wonderfully. The other I started when I was 18 years old and it’s still going strong. I plan to start and own a variety of businesses in my lifetime. I love business!
SIXTEEN: I’ve been on two missions excursions so far and am currently planning number three. The summer of 2010 I stayed in San Cristobal, Dominican Republic for one month and interned with some of my favorite missionaries in the earth. Fall 2013 I visited Carrefour, Haiti for a week on a missions trip. In 2015 Haiti and I will be together again, at last.
SEVENTEEN: My plan is to set heart and foot on as many nations as I can before I “go”. Not to collect plane tickets or to bulk up my, “where have you been” list but to spread the love of the Father to the nations. However that may look in each occasion.
EIGHTEEN: I can’t stand bracelets. I’m a ring and earring girl all the way. Sometimes I throw in an occasional necklace here or there, which is almost always my Giving Key…Because it’s my favorite.
NINETEEN: My mom is my absolute best friend. I have no shame in saying that. She is an incredible mom and women of God. Her constant faithfulness and persistence in pursing the Lord and loving those around her inspires me. Love you, Momma! xoxoxo
TWENTY: There is nothing I am more sure of then God. Even when I have trouble explaining Him, when I don’t understand what He’s doing or what I think He’s not doing, when i’m close and in times where I’ve been far – I’m still sure of His love, faithfulness, and extravagant grace.
