Today I decided to write my profile... and this is what came out

I have a fear of paper cuts
I become easily obsessed with things (don’t let that scare you, it’s always healthy obsessions - although that may be an oxymoron)
I think people who want to run marathons are crazy, but secretly, I'm jealous of them
I've seen justin timberlake in concert 6 times, and counting….
I find those awkward moments in life hilarious
Life would be a lot more exciting if people broke out in random song from time to time
A dream of mine is to be in a completely random place and suddenly everyone there knows the choreography to a dance and starts doing it, kind of like high school musical or grease
I have really bad posture and every day I fight to not bite my nails
I'm a whiz at Wheel of Fortune
The word "moist" grosses me out
I'd rather go to a musical than to a movie
I make To Do Lists with things I've already done, just so I can check them off
I want to live by the ocean some day but vacation in the mountains
I can talk for hours and hours, but I'm also a great listener
My parents used to call me megaphone when I was little because I would never shut up
I have more energy than a 3rd grader. I can never sit still. Ever since I was 5, I've had this problem when I start laughing and I'm supposed to be serious, its almost impossible for me to stop.
Dark liquids make me nervous
I love to read all kinds of books
People would describe me as a happy person with a good heart
Im a huge iowa hawkeyes fan
I absolutely love rollercoasters
I've always wanted the power to move things with my mind (and one time I thought I could)
I have an addiction to music.
I'm going to be a great mom some day
I feel a great sense of accomplishment when I can complete a crossword puzzle by myself
I notice the little things in life, and I enjoy them….
I expect guys to open the door for ladies
I'm close with my family yet I don’t see them that often
I value friendship more than you know
I enjoy that my life is random
I say I'll try anything once
I love christmas carols and classic hymns.
I'm a shopaholic who knows how to budget and save
I've got personality for days

and I think thats just about it..... for now!

After todays events at Virginia Tech...

I feel deep sorrow for the students who experienced what went on and sadness for the families who lost someone. Basically today, I was left with a loss of words as I watched the news. I was reminded of a song today and I just thought I'd share the lyrics.....

I'm finding myself at a loss for words and the funny thing is it's okay
The last thing I need is to be hear but to hear what You would say
World of God speak, would you pour down like rain
Washing my eyes to see, your majesty
To be still and know that you're in this place
Please let me stay and rest in your holiness
Word of God speak

I'm finding myself in the midst of You
Beyond the music, beyond the noise
All that I need is to be with you and in the quiet hear your voice

Word of God Speak......
I'm finding myself at a loss for words and the funny thing is, it;s okay.

And now I'm officially obsessed...

I spent a good part of my day reading articles about Zach, listening to commentary, watching some videos, etc etc etc. Here's a few that I liked. I also, added the conversation my aunt and I had during the Masters.

It takes 'normal guy' to slay Tiger
Opinion: In the final analysis, this Masters that made no sense makes perfect sense. That is, Zach Johnson makes perfect sense._ "I'm just a Midwest guy from Cedar Rapids, Iowa," Johnson. "Just a normal guy. That's what it's all about."

And this is why I'm a fan….

Johnson blessed to win on Easter
Zach Johnson will take a win at the Masters any day. That he did it on Easter made it even more special.

During Easter, my entire family was watching the tournament. My aunt, throughout the tournament yesterday, kept commenting on Zach b/c she knew we were big fans of him. She kept saying things like "Jill, why aren't you married to him? I mean come on, you should be in georgia with him" "Why didn't you go after that guy?"
My response: "well, that would be nice but I think he's married"
My aunt "Well I dont care about that. Hes going to win the Masters!"
My response - "haha, true..."

Later at the end when he won and he was kissing his baby and hugging his wife
my aunt : "On second thought, maybe you shouldn't go for him
my response :well maybe I could be their nanny!

Mauer vs. Wright

So my Dad and I had a little heart to heart on our way home from Chicago tonight. And by heart to heart, I mean we talked about who we thought was a better baseball player, David Wright or Joe Mauer. I'm a big David Wright fan (for obvious reasons) so I naturally think he's the better baseball player. At 24 years old, he plays a wicked third baseman wearing that number 5. With 67 homers to his nameand .311 average, whats not to love. But, my Dad knows more about baseball than anyone I know. So when he has an opinion, I generally listen. Joe Mauer had a pretty good year last year so I guess I'll give him that. We'll just see how this year goes for him..... But I do love my Mr. Wright!
