50 Facts

Most of you already know me pretty well but i thought i'd do this today for fun. Plus I can't think of much to write about right now :)

1. My full name is Abigail Elizabeth but everyone calls me Abby. Or Abbs.

3. I was a Girl Scout for 13 years of my life (thats a LOT of cookies)
4. I am close to both my parents, but am so much like my dad.
5. I was very close to my grandma Louise. She died when I was 15. And yes, that's where Rachel's middle name comes from.
6. I am a big worrier and have been my whole life. I wasn't officially "diagnosed" with anxiety until this past year. I thought how I felt was normal

9. I have never had a broken bone or cavity in my life.
10. I've worn glasses since I was 8 years old. I am very near-sighted.
11. I am a horrible driver. We won't go into all that though!

13. I love to write (obviously) I love having this blog as my outlet and to remember things.

15. I am very, very fearful of bugs, snakes, clowns, tight spaces, and public speaking.

24. I feel deeply and am extremely passionate. I am the sweetest person you ever know, but don't ever do me or my family wrong, or I will unleash the inner BEAST!

27. I love to plan and host parties. I go all out for birthdays, they are the best.
28. I LOVE LOVE LOVE babies. I would have had 100 if I could have. I really did want a 4th, but health and finances kept us from it. I work in the Boxcar Babies class at church so I can snuggle all the babies. When my friends have babies I LOVE to spoil them!
29. I hate talking on the phone, just not a phone person
30. I am extremely shy until I get to know someone, then they bug me to shut up ;)

39. I am more of a mountains-girl than a beach-girl. But i do love the sound of the ocean!
