Anyway! I came upon a note of 25 Things About Me that I wrote on Feb 18, 2009. Tomorrow, it will be 2 years since I've written that note (gosh, how long have I been on facebook??), and as I read it, I realized just how different I am now! It's crazy, although some things are the same. So, I thought I'd share the original note with you, and then revise it, a whopping 2 years years later. :)

(im scratching my head thinking, "why did no one tell me I was so strange??" although, im probably still strange. or even more so) :)
and now the revised version (Feb 17, 1011):
- I love to write. It's my favorite hobby!
- my favorite color is "blushy pink" :) remember??
- I do think about the future, but not as much. I think as I've gotten older, I've realized the importance of keeping your head in reality! So far, God's only given me the present, and this is where I should be.
- hahahhahahaha! this one makes me laugh! I DO still want lots of kids! But I feel like God has laid it on my heart to, one day, foster children, which means that they (more or less than 10) may not all be in the house at the same time. When I said I wanted 10 or more, I was really wanting a busy life-style and a full house where I could create a system to run our life and be really organized. does that make sense?? ;) probably not. I just want whatever God gives me!
- this one remains the same. although, i've met people since then that i think i will be friends with for a while. maybe. hopefully. :) im still working on the, "as iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another" thing. :)
- my dream job is to be whatever God wants me to be to the best of my abilities. plain and simple, whether that be mommy and a wife, just a wife, or an astronaut! (Oh, God, please; NOT an astronaut!). ;)
- i do still love gardening, but i dont do it as much as i used to. i think i spend a lot/most of my extra time reading or writing.
- oooooohhhhh, i debate over this one all the time in my head. one day it's a tulip. another day it's a daisy. Today, I like snap dragons. Can I just say that I love Botany, and let that be that??
- hm. im not as healthy of an eater as i used to be. but i think thats ok. im only young once, and while my metabolism's still high, i'll enjoy carbonated drinks! :) although, i am careful to not over-indulge or to just eat whenever i feel like it. i dont want to make bad habits now, and then carry them into my life later. i have to be in good shape to preach the Gospel! :)
- i love exercising. but cyn and i are both too busy for every tuesday and thursday now. :)
- i still love NCIS! but i also love: 19 Kids and Counting, American Idol, Lie to Me, and House. And, of course, movies!
- i still enjoy taking pictures!
- im not even going to revise this one, because I don't even know why i said it in the first place. it's not something important you should know about me!
- im getting better!! i try, really i do. :)
- ha. yeah, well, God's got other plans. Maybe in NYC, San Diego, the Appalachians, or Chicago. you know, maybe. :)
- i........ well, no comment. (see #13)
- no comment
- still love summer! and I'm so excited that it's finally getting warm around here! :)
- since i wrote this, 2 years ago, I have had my wisdom teeth taken out. and that counts as surgery. :(
- mmmmmm, not so much.
- i like natural and earthy tones, but still happy. i really like white.
- yes! i still love hershey's chocolate!
- daddy's still in the Guard, and is actuall being deployed to Afganistan soon. that's really different. it's requiring a lot of trust in God right now.
- still love country music, but also hymns and Hillsong!
- i'll probably leave the country sometime, on a missions trip or something. who knows... :)
wow, so a lot of things are different. :) if you want to know even more about me, you can go here!
