Because I am crazy

I am doing NaBloPoMo.

Because I am crazy!

I have done NaBloPoMo the past 2 years and I just feel like I HAVE to do it! But also I do want to :)

Some of the posts may be not the best content, but I will put something up everyday!!

Yesterday was Halloween, (Obviously) and on Saturday night some friends and I went out to the bars. It was so fun!!! Can you guess what my friend and I went as?

Does this help? We are prending to do this picture :)

Yep we are Snooki and Jwoww from Jersey Shore! Neither she or I had ever watched an episode of the show before, so on Saturday morning we watched a few episodes!! It is not a completely terrible show, just like real world, kinda. I was OBSESSED with real world as a teen.

I struggled with where to wear my pump. I ended up clipping it to my leggings which were up halfway up my body because they were too big, so my pump was like in the middle of my back.

It was the best looking spot (because I couldn't see it!) But It was NOT the best place to get to my pump. My sister was standing up against a wall at one point and I put my back up against her, and I stuck my hand up my shirt and pulled it out! I hope no one saw me... It was dark... and crowded!!!

too long for twitter!

HEY! Quick blog post because I could not adequately tweet the whole thing!

I don't change my sensor very often.. I just let it go until its bad so I have a LOT of leftovers. Which is fine, but they expire!!

I have 18 sensors that expire on November 29 2010. I am going to keep 8 of them but I have 10 that will end up being thrown away :(

These things are precious!! So if you use a Minimed Continuous Glucose Monitor and would like a sensor or 2 just email me at and I'll ship it out to you!

I'll pay for shipping unless its out of the country, but I'd rather these guys have a good home! Its that or the trash can!!

25 things

A few weeks ago I wrote about my diabetes burnout. I am since over said burnout, but today instead of writing about diabetes, I have decided to make a list of 25 random things about me that do NOT include diabetes!! These are in no particular order, just the order my brain thought of them. lol.

1. When I wear my hair in a ponytail, it is always to the left side. I wear my hair in a ponytail pretty much every day! I am known for my side ponytail. I have heard people say on more than one occasion while they had in a side pony, "look! I'm wearing a jenny ponytail today!" lol.

2. When I'm hanging out with the most amazing 3 month old EVER, and her bow falls out, I usually put it in my hair and then don't realize it for hours later.

3. I have the most beautiful, amazing, chunky 3 month old niece in the entire world. I love that girl so much, I didn't know there was a piece of me missing until she was born!!

4. I love sewing, especially stuff for babies, so I set up this etsy site.

5. I have the same thing for breakfast every morning, a Nature Valley Oats n Honey granola bar and a diet Pepsi.

6. I wish when its 11:11. I wish for the same thing every time.

7. I have lost 25-ish pounds since march, and my friends are finally able to notice it. lol scrubs are NOT form fitting.

8. I have gone out to the bars three times in the last month. I NEVER go out, so this is a big deal!!

9. My sister Katy is FINALLY 21. I realize this is not about me, but I feel like I have been waiting FOR 6 YEARS for her to be able to go to the bars with me, so this is a big deal. I have only been waiting like 2 years and 8 months. lol.

10. I really really REALLY want a nice camera. As in a DSLR. However I cannot afford it.

11. I am 5'1" tall and wear a size 8 shoe, and have bigger hands then a LOT of men. I am so unporportional.

12. I went to South Bend this weekend, it was a nice break from life :) Just Maddy my dad and I went it was great!

13. My favorite color is pink. It has always been pink and will probably always be pink. I just love it.

14. I don't use any pillows when I sleep. If I do use a pillow, its a super flat one.

15. My sister is my best friend. I love that.

16. I love peanut butter. LOVE IT. Could be a borderline obsession.

17. I am also slightly obsessed with Laney. How could you not be! Look at her!!

18. I am a rule follower (for the most part) and it really bothers me when someone intentionally does not follow the rules and they get away with it. grr.

19. I love to read. My dream house has a library filled with all different types of books and a huge overstuffed couch with lots of pillows and blankets just begging to be layed in!!

20. People often think I am WAY younger than I actually am. As in almost 10 years younger than I am. An 18 year old host at Applebees asked if I needed a kids menu... duuudddee.

21. I got my dimples from my Mama.. I used to dislike them, but now I love them. :) Although I think they make me look even YOUNGER than I am, I love that I inherited them from my Mom.

22. I am 1/4 Mexican, believe it or not :) My family and I did yard work a few weeks ago and my dad and I were making jokes about the Mexicans doing the yard work aka.. US!

23. Laney is laughing, and its quite possibly the MOST AMAZING noise ever. We got it on camera today, but I think it probably shouldn't be displayed over the Internet because I have to make these terrible baby talk voices to make her laugh!! It is so very worth it.

24. I love Law & Order SVU and NCIS. I really wish they were on right now.

25. I made DEANS LIST last quarter!!! My GPA was a 3.95!! best GPA of my LIFE!! All A's and one A-

Well there ya go!!! 25 very random things about me. :) enjoy your Tuesday!!
