Here are the next 25! I know, you are so excited you can't wait. No need to push, everyone can have a turn to read them. =0)

26. I didn’t know that people drank alcohol in high school. (See #23)
27. Some things I carry in the car at all times include a Frisbee, a towel, animal beanbags in a bucket, sidewalk chalk, and a first aid kit. (I would be fun to be stranded with).
28. I like to sleep with a pile of blankets on me. I like the weight of it all.
29. I don’t have a favorite season. I love them all as they get here.
30. I have never been drunk.
31. I have never taken a single drag of a cigarette.
32. I have never been tempted to do either 30 or 31.
33. I love REAL potato chips.
34. I am allergic to caffeine. It makes me so sick it isn’t even funny.
35. I love to run during training, but usually dread the run part of a triathlon. I don’t love to train on the bike but love the bike part of the race. (Kooky, I know.)
36. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism with minors in Studio Art, Biology, and English. Which is funny because I am now a physical therapist.
37. I have never, ever dyed my hair.
38. By my sophomore year of high school I was practicing gymnastics at least 25 hours a week at the gymnastics club that my parents sold their souls to in tuition. I didn’t appreciate all of that until recently. (See look, here I am ready to take my baby to practice.)
39. I was a high school diver and gymnast and I am here to tell you that diving is WAY scarier than gymnastics.
40. I love the word “undulate” especially as it related to swimming fly but maybe in other ways too. =0)
41. I was 4 feet 11 inches tall when I got my drivers license.
42. I grew 5 inches my senior year of high school.
43. I need at least 8 hours of sleep and I get it almost every single night. (I don’t do well after 9:30 pm.)
44. I am still a very, very picky eater but I have always been willing to eat peanut butter. Just ask my mama. (And yes, that really is me.)

45. I love to rock climb. Unfortunately Nebraska is a very flat state.
46. I had more sports equipment than my husband when we got married. He is still trying to catch up.
47. Guys that shave their legs, chest and arms… sexy. The less hair the better. (Faces may be the exception to that rule.)
48. I have overly sensitive ears. I wear earplugs when I use the vacuum or the blender.
49. I have done rescue breathing two times in my life. Once on a child who nearly drowned, and once on an adult who stopped breathing after a seizure. Both instances were at the pool I worked at in college. Both lived. The 4-year-old little girl actually ended up throwing up in my mouth. Gross, I know.
50. I only like movies with happy endings.

#49- everyone I have ever CPRed hasn't been successful (mental note not to drop in front of me I guess)
#40- undulate is a good word. My favorite is vesicourethropexy. Rolls right off the tongue like butter.... ;-)

#30 - sometimes I wish I had never been drunk :P
#35 - I hate the run, but love the tri swim. Funny though, I hate swim training.
#19 - makeup is overrated and ponytails rock!

Ok... SO we still have SO much in common. Except #30. I grew up in Washington State. Apparently, that is what we do there :-)

btw - did you know I met Bigun rock climbing? Sho nuff!! Florida isn't very conducive to climbing either. I really really miss it!

28) Thats me too. I have a down comforter but I would rather use about ten heavy blankets instead.

48) I sleep w/ ear plugs.
