33 Facts for 33rd Birthday!

Being that today is my 33rd birthday, i’ve decided to jot down 33 facts about myself that maybe you guys didn’t know :).

  1. My mother named me Jennie after her favorite character on All of my Children :).
  2. I was given the middle name Lee because my dad wanted to name me Lillian, after my mom, but she didn’t lol. So they settled on shortening it to Lee (At least that’s my understanding of it! :P)
  3. I am the oldest of 7 siblings!
  4. I have 12 nieces and nephews!
  5. I met my husband at the tender age of 15! I did not like him at all, until we were 16 and in Global class together <3.
  6. I am petrified of insects and bottom feeders because of all the the legs they have! Ugh I shiver just thinking of it!
  7. I have been to Hawaii and Alaska! Both are incredibly beautiful!
  8. I played with barbie dolls well into being 12 years old lol. Leave me alone, I was young and innocent! :p
  9. I’ve been parasailing! Being about 200ft up in the air was very eery but really quiet and relaxing. I was terrified but I did it, along with my husband so I can have a new adventure!
  10. I really love the Holi Hali Indian festival of colors! I’ve been to the festival twice. It’s such a blast! Everyone bringing in Spring, with family, friends and strangers and just throwing color all over everyone with smiles and laughter :).
  11. My father is 6’4, mom is 4’9 and i’m 4’10 lol. Huge difference, I know!
  12. My favorite movies are: Grease, Ferris Bueller’s Day off, Footloose, Teen Witch and Pretty in Pink!

  17. I really love elderly people. Even the cranky ones! lol They have lived so much and it’s great to hear their life stories.

  24. When I was young, I use to play ‘steal the bacon’ a lot with the kids from the block! Such a fun game!
