Now its my turn

Remember all that time ago when the “5 things you don’t know about me” floated around and everyone jumped on it to share? Well, I thought I’d be cool and wait until it completely died down where no one in blogland was doing it and do mine. In reality, this has taken weeks weeks to create so technically it could have been posted during the whole fad, but I didn’t realize it would be so hard to think of 5 things.. and I wasn’t sure I wanted to say one of them, so it was a lot of back and forth until I decided to throw caution to the wind and just go for it.

So, this is me. Giving you 5 things that after reading this, you can’t say you didn’t know about me anymore.


1. I've been engaged before.   (hello cat, you can come out of the bag now)
2. I like the smell of skunk and associate it with lemons. I realize they don't smell like lemons in any way, but every time I smell a skunk I think, mmmmm, lemons. {does this put me in the minority??}
3. I have a flossing accountability partner. Every night we text each other that we flossed. That's the only way either of us will actually floss (consistently) and its been working for the past 4 months or so. Our gums have never been happier.

….and you probably thought I was joking.
4. Its a must that I use the bathroom whenever I go somewhere. Just the thought of getting in a car accident and knowing I'll pee all over myself while unconscious, ensures I have an empty bladder before leaving... even though I realize pee all over me is the least of my problems, if I'm passed out from a car accident.. but why add insult to injury.. am I right?
5. G-man and I love to listen to John Tesh on the radio and we (ok, maybe just I) call him “Teshy” and say, “Hi Teshy” or “Its Teshy!!” when he comes on to give his facts… and I may or may not wave to the radio in the car on occasion. Teshy has wisdom, you guys!

There you have it!! Five truths about little ol’ me!

I think I should start this trend back up, what do you say?? If you didn’t do a post listing the 5 things we don’t know about you, I give you my full permission to share and you’re more than welcome to blame me for resurrecting it if you get any grief from others. My excuse I’ll use is I grew up in small town Utah where we never got the “trends” in stores until 2 years after they happened, so I don’t know any better. 

Pin It Now!

these are fantastic! I just started flossing about 6 months ago and I'm kind of addicted. My dentist is so proud. Also, YES you are in the minority :)

You think hubby would be enough accountability but nope. I still DONT FLOSS....well, every now and then but absolutely not as much as I should. I hate the way it feels. GAG!

I LOOOOOVE John Tesh! I used to listen to him every morning on the way to work. He has such a friendly voice!

I maaaaay do this soooon!

You're right. Peeing yourself WOULD be the least of your problems, but you made me giggle out loud with that one.

As for the skunk thing? Ummm... what??? I love the smell of lemons. Skunk, not so much. I.e. Not at all. You realize of course, that every time I drive by a dead skunk, I'm going to think, "Emily is crazy! In NO way does this god awful stench, smell like lemons." Okay, I might not think those EXACT words, but I'll definitely be thinking the "crazy" part. I might have to start calling you, "Pepe LePew," just because. Pepe, for short, of course. ;)

Bring on the craziness, Em! It only makes me love you more.

P.S. We love John Tesh, too. You've just gotta love a man that makes you feel smarter every time you listen to his show.

Haha! I loved these! That is quite hilarious about flossing. I think I might try it though. ha! I have to use the restroom before I go anywhere too. It just has to happen. I think it's logical!

...yes, you are definitely in the minority with the skunk-lemon association.
