5 Random Facts for Friday

Abbi from Higher Miles posted a list of random facts about herself this morning and it looks as though a lot of others have joined in. I've really been enojoying reading everyone's lists and figured I'd have some fun and post my own too!

1. Our 3rd son was born in our minivan!! (you can read about it here). Way to get your attention, huh? it's true though...

2. I met my husband in Germany while I was visiting a friend whose husband was stationed there with the army. My husband was in the army too at the time but is British (it's a long story....). We got married a year later and lived in Germany for 3 more years. I loved living in Germany, it is beautiful there, there's always something to do and the people are very friendly.

3. I love being outdoors and all the activities that come with it; running, camping, swimming, skiing, hiking, etc...my favorite place to be is in the mountains. I would love to live in the mountains some day and eventually I know we will. I keep reminding my husband of this. Where I live now is just too far away from the mountains for me...

4. I'm from Pennsylvania (we call it Pee-Ay). I've lived in about 19 different houses in a couple of different states including Virginia (where I currently live), New Mexico , New york and Germany.

5. My father is a minister, so I heard this a lot, "Oh, you're a PK (preacher's kid), they're the worst". I don't think that's true. I think it's made me who I am and I like who I am.

So fun! Living in Germany, jealous. I have always wanted to live abroad at least for a year, no real reason why other than for the adventure. Babies in vans... Gonna have to go catch up on that one!
