{10} Secrets

1.  I was born in Santiago, Chile during the time my parents lived abroad for 8 years as missionaries.

2.  I hate State Farm Insurance with a passion. I have my reasons. When I find out someone has them for insurance I have an uncontrollable urge to convince them to switch!

3.  I like playing RPG video games! I am a nerd...

4.  I love researching ancestry. It's a bit of an obsession. It has sparked my urge to travel to Scotland someday and see where they lived and were buried. Who Do You Think You Are is one of my favorite TV shows!

5.  I have a terribly hard time saying goodbye to my doggies every morning. It literally breaks my heart as they try to come with me and I have to tell them no. I love them so much!

6.  My guilty pleasure song is Never Say Never by Justin Beiber.

7.  I'm way too open about my life. If you ask, however personal, I'll probably tell you. If you don't ask, I might tell you anyways. :)

8.  I check my bank account a ridiculous amount of times a day because I always want to know what has gone through and how much money we have in there. It doesn't change that much but I still like to check.

9.  I think old cemeteries are beautiful and fascinating (this is the weirdest thing about me and people think I'm nuts - please don't stop reading my blog because of it.)

10.  I have a tattoo of "XIX" on my hip for the 19th Amendment. It represents the women that fought hard in years past so that we could have the rights we do today. Just a few of my favorites: Abigail Adams, Alice Paul, Amelia Earhart, & Carrie Chapman Catt

“The world taught women nothing skillful and then said her work was valueless. It permitted her no opinions and said she did not know how to think. It forbade her to speak in public and said the sex had no orators. It denied her the schools, and said the sex had no genius. It robbed her of every vestige of responsibility, and then called her weak. It taught her that every pleasure must come as a favor from men and when, to gain it, she decked herself in paint and fine feathers, as she had been taught to do, it called her vain.” -Carrie Chapman Catt

I really love that quote! I'd never read it before, but I'm feeling the need to do something with it.
