3 Things You May Not Know About Me - Blog Hop

1- I have an extra set of ribs. Most people have 12 sets of
ribs, but I have 13. They are short and squatty and totally__________(insert your favorite word here)
a. interesting
b. freak show-ish
c. lucky
d. gross
e. all of the above

2-My feet are claustrophobic! They do not like socks or shoes and they really hate tucked in bed covers! We cover ourselves with only a down-comforter at night, with easy escape routes for my feet! It's really great that it is warm enough here to wear sandals year round!!

3- I have a bit of Closet OCD. I like all the clothes to be organized in a certain way and almost every one's closets are organized differently. Lily and Daisy's clothes are organized by color. The boys' clothes are arranged by coordinating/matching outfits and my clothes are organized by the length of the sleeves. I have maybe 2 pairs of pants that need to be hung up, and I let Donn organize his own clothes! My Closet OCD is closely related to my Laundry OCD (certain items get hung up, others are folded in a very specific way)! **edited** Donn told me to add Proper Dish Placement in the Dishwasher OCD!

*Bonus* And here is one extra item you may not know about me: I have always wanted a Cozy Coupe!
Last week it was reported in the news that the Little Tykes cozy coupe was the most sold car in the US in 2008. It beat out the Honda Accord and the Toyota Camry! Well, I have wanted one of these cars since we had Lily (9years ago). For one reason or another, we never got one. We were looking at them just last week while trying to get some Birthday ideas for Miss Daisy. I thought they were kinda expensive and pretty much ruled out getting one. Then, the other night while Donn was out riding his bike, he saw a Cozy Coupe siting at the end of someones driveway along with a bunch of other garbage (foreclosed home :( ). He asked me if I wanted him to go back and get it. I said we should check it out and if it was in good condition we could keep it. Take a look at this:

I think it is in great condition! It is missing all of the stickers but it is hardly faded at all. I let the kids have a car wash and they cleaned it up. And I found out that I can order brand new stickers for it on the Little Tykes website! So we got our Cozy Coupe for $1.45 + shipping! I LOVE IT! I do have a bit of guilt that we never got one for the other kids because all of them have played with it every day since we got it!

I've been taking a free class at JessicaSprague.com on photo-editing and have been learning some fun new tricks! This is my most recent homework.

I too love the cozy coupe, but thought they were too expensive. I'm a huge yardsaler, and I bought one on friday for 3.00 and another on Saturday for 10.00. Now I'll go online and order new stickers for them, I didn't know you could do that!!

Kathryn @ Expectant Hearts said...

Your pics are great! We also got a cozy coupe at a garage sale. WAY too pricey new!!

Thanks for visiting my blog! Yours is way cute! I wanted to tell you -- I also have closet OCD! My clothes all have to be on white hangers and are organized by type (spaghetti strap tank, wide strap tank, t-shirt, etc.) and then by color (white, green, blue, purple, yellow, orange, red, brown, black). It's nice to know there are others out there with closet OCD! =]

That's so totally odd you have an extra set of ribs. But I'm sure some of us have odd things like that we don't even know about!

Jennifer said...

So glad you stopped by my blog - I have to admit I was a bit overwhelmed with all the links at the blog hop!! But I love meeting new friends.

What a beautiful family you have! And such cute names... I LOVE the cozy coupe! Goodness, how I would love to have one for my sweet granddaughter who will be visiting next month! I might just check out Craig's List right now!

I enjoyed reading your blog hop post. Your thirteenth rib is one of the most original things I've seen so far.

I always wanted to get a Cozy Coupe for my kids but couldn't afford it and must not have shopped at the right garage sales. Glad you found one at the right price.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Appreciate you stopping by.
