Wifey’s 25

I know, I know, its Hump Day at Wifey’s House and there’s no sex post. Gasp! There's just me … and 25 things about me.

I wrote this list for the “25 Random Things about You” note that has plagued Facebook and figured I’d share it at Wifey’s House, too.

So, here’s 25 random things about Wifey … please don’t hold, ahem, any of them against me:

1. Napoleon is my favorite husband. Yes, he’s my only one, but he’s still my favorite.
2. I’m a child at heart. I let my kids go down the stairs head first because I remember how much fun it was when I did it.
3. My sister is my best friend; we call each other Mi Hermana (my sister in Spanish).
4. I’m a certified personal fitness trainer … and I love beer.
5. I would eat pasta every day if it wouldn’t blow me up.
6. I live in the south and I don’t drink sweet tea.
7. I gained more than 40 pounds with my second child.
8. I lost 70 pounds after my second child.
9. I’ve run one half marathon and do The Peachtree Road Race every year.
10. The first car I bought was a ’77 white, four-door Chevy Nova with red plaid “Gucci” interior. Her name was Lillian.
11. Some “friends” I went to high school with stole Lillian and crashed her. She was renamed “The Stolen Nova” and was put to rest.
12. My second car was a Chrysler Laser – The Brown Hornet. I drove it until the door fell off – literally.
13. I Twitter. @wifeyshouse.
14. I’m taking piano lessons ‘cause it’s never too late to learn.
15. I went to the best HBCU – Hampton University.
16. I worked for the best women’s HBCU – Spelman College.
17. I had the time of my life working for the “original” LaFace Records.
18. I don’t miss the madness … just the people.
19. I love writing.
20. I’m a “24” fanatic; and I watch “The Today Show” every morning.
21. I love the NBA ... and the NFL.
22. I play women’s and mixed doubles tennis in an Atlanta tennis league.
23. My wedding was on TLC’s television show “A Wedding Story.”
24. I just took a cruise in the Mediterranean for a television show on The Travel Channel.
25. No, I’m not a reality TV star, but I did have dreams of being a sportscaster in high school.

Don’t worry, I’m not tagging anyone, but feel free to throw yourself under the bus and share a few random facts of your own; inquiring minds would love to know…

Winks & Smiles,

Loved reading your list! Wish I had your love of fitness; I hate it, but it doesn't matter because I have to do it anyway.

I'd play along but there are only 8 things about me in total.

Nice to know you better. Would have loved to see the wedding feature!

Wifey said...

Thanks Y'all! :)

MoziEsme, I think I'm going to post a clip from the Wedding Story. I've had a lot of people ask.

Great list, I did one, but I didn't repost it on my blog. I do have one request going over the last few posts... Could you quite blogging about beer? Now I want a nice black ale really badly and sadly it is neither in my budget or my diet. ;) Maybe next week...

Dude, where's the sex? Just kidding! WOW! Lots of great stuff about you! No sweet tea??? Sad...just so very sad! Now I know I want to meet you in person!

LOL---the whole facebook tag thing is out of control isn't it? I loved your list. I was going to ignore the facebook one until I was tagged about 43 times...I succumbed.

This is a great list. I have been tagged more times than I can count for it and have yet to do one. And I don't think that I ever will.
