Happy birthday to me!!!!
December 1st, 1979 welcomed a little baby girl into the world!!! A friend of mine posted a cute blog about herself in 34 facts on her 34th birthday! This is my 33rd but there's no way I can try to put together that many random facts about myself! haha! So, these are the top 10 I can think of!
#1 - The island of Maui is where I was born and lived 6 months of my life! Mom and dad moved back to Michigan after that! :-P
#2 - I learned to play the accordion in college and it still is one of my favorite little quirky things that I consider a part of myself! I love figuring out jazz songs - playing the melody on the keyboard and the chords with the chord buttons!
#3 - I majored in music education and after about 10 years in the classroom I am so happy and fulfilled to have a private piano studio of about 25 kids!
#4 - What About Bob has always been one of my favorite movies. If you know me well you've probably heard me quote something from the movie...."I feel good, I feel great, I feel wonderful!"
#5 - Doncha-wish-your-hubby-was-a-prince-like-mine? Well, not really a prince but he did fly to Germany to propose to me in the Heidelberg Castle! Right inside the left turret below the main castle front! He knows how to keep a secret and pull off a surprise for sure!!! :)
#6 - We have fierce Jeopardy battles in our house. Our 3 year old likes to play along with us! The rules are that you can answer the question as soon as you know the answer - and final Jeopardy is worth 2 points! :)
#7 - my grandparents owned a horse while I was growing up and I spent 6 weeks with my legs in casts after I fell off.
#8 - John Corbett introduced himself to me at the Boundr'y restaurant in Nashville! He was a bit buzzed but I was flattered that he kind of flirted with me! (Nick was not happy) ;-)
#9 - My first car was a mustard colored 1973 Chevy Impala named Garfield. It was like driving a boat!!!
And #10 - One of my birthday traditions growing up is that my mom would take me to the Nutcracker! A tradition that I plan to carry on to my daughter (and son if he wants to go!) Nashville has a wonderful adaptation!! I don't know if we'll go this year or just watch the Balanchine version at home!
If you want to know what to get me for my birthday, I won't say no to a new Brother PR650e!!! wink wink! :)
Have a great weekend!
