11 Things about me.... Randi Rodriguez!

1. I am the ONLY person in my family who has blonde hair and blue eyes. And it ain't fake! (just a few highlights). Seriously. Everyone, even the married in ones are brunette with dark eyes (and tan skin at that!). 

2. I am an Army brat. I have 2 brothers who are Marines, a sister in law who was former Marine and I swore up and down that I would NEVER marry a Military man. Until I fell in love with Andy. Who happend to be my bff's brother.

I love my soldier and wouldn't have it any other way.

3. I have always wanted to have big plump lips like Angelina Jolie. I'm constantly searching for the perfect lip plumper.

4. It's very rare if my fingernails are not painted. I HATE my hands so I try to make them better by having perfectly manicured fingers. The reason I hate my hands: they are tiny.

5. My favorite type of food is Mexican, and if you noticed my last name is Rodriguez. Yep, I married into the right family! My MIL's cooking is AMAZING!

6. I've always wanted to live in the South, and now that I'm here... I don't love it. Maybe it's just Savannah. or maybe the side of town I'm on... but it's not all sweet tea and fried chicken ;)

7. I absolutely despise grocery shopping. My SIL/BFF and I always talk about how much we dislike it and hope some day we are like our momma's and learn to love it.

8. I had my first surgery when I was 27. I had a tumor next to my ovary that they had to remove. Now I have a nasty 5 inch scar on my bikini line.

9. I'm deathly afraid of spiders. They can be teeny-tiny or huge... hate em' all.

10. I never leave the house without at least eye-liner on and would LOVE to have eye liner tatooed so I don't have to put it on every. single. day.

11. Every day I wonder why in the world I was given such an amazing man as my husband. And every day I try to make sure I tell him how much I love him :) He really puts up with alot!

11 New Questions (from Jessica!)

  1. So glad you participated - loved reading your facts about you! I also had no idea you were in Savannah. I'm in Macon, so I don't think I'm that far from you!!! We should do a blogger meet up one day!:)

    PS: If you're in the Richmond Hill area, I TOTALLY understand why you don't love living there. I had family there, and it can be a hard town to live in.

  2. I love the South! I've always wanted to visit Savannah!!!!
