100 Facts About Me - Parts 1 & 2

If you are on Twitter, you have probably seen the hashtag #100factsaboutme going around. Instead of clogging up Twitter with it, Megan over at Megan Writes decided to do it in a blog. Since I am behind, I'm doing Part 1 and Part 2 today. The other two parts will be up in a few days. I've only got 6 more facts to think of!

So, click on Megan's link up there and join in!

1. I don't usually like it when someone shortens my name. VERY few get away with it. If somebody calls me Jess, I normally answer with 'ica.'
2. I'm WAY too tender-hearted. I seriously cry at everything. Commercials, daytime soaps, dogs tied to chains outside, homeless people. M has told me to close my eyes before while we are driving down the road. It's BAD!
3. I'm a huge animal person. Once we get to our "new normal," I'm going vegan.
4. I've met LeAnn Rimes, Sara Evans, Carrie Underwood, Jessica Andrews and Candace Cameron Bure.
5. I love concerts. Some of my favorites were Bon Jovi, Kid Rock, Carrie Underwood, and Reba to name a few.
6. During deployment, we paid off everything except the car and truck.

8. I am an avid reader. I love everything except scary books.
9. I'm addicted to Food Network, HGTV, The Golden Girls, Ghost Adventures and Lockup. Crazy, right?

18. Sometimes I think I'm ready for kids. Sometimes I know I'm not.

I have also never broken a bone. Let's hope that doesn't happen now!

I have started to like checking the mail too, but we don't ever get anything. Boo!

That's so cool about your family tree! I wish I could do one for both sides of my family, but it's hard.

Thanks for linking up! :) I hope you had fun sharing your facts and reading other's posts!

I've heard that you can make pickles easily by cutting up a cucumber and putting it in the pickle jar with the juice after you finish a jar of pickles. I've never tried it, but I'm tempted!

Oh, I have the same motion-sickness problem. D doesn't believe me when I tell him Im going to throw up driving through our hilly neighborhood! Someday I'll show him!
