five things.

| back in the day...when i was just a wee babe. |

one | i do not like coconut. i like how it smells, but i don't like eating it. it's a texture thing. the only exception to this rule are girl scout samoa cookies, which i'm pretty sure are sent from up above.

two | i have weird thumbs. they are short and stubby, and they look like they belong to a gecko.

three |  i played basketball for the YMCA in middle school. i was on my brother's team, and i was the only girl in the league in my age group. also, i couldn't make a shot from the foul line throwing the ball regularly, but you better believe i could make it throwing a granny shot. mad skillz.

four | i had braces for a freakishly long time (over 3 years) because at age 16, we were still waiting for my 12 year molars to come in. i was a late bloomer.

five | like any good home schooler, i worked at chick-fil-a for three years in high school. i have since erased the phrase "my pleasure" from my vocabulary.

that's all for today folks! what's one random fact about you?

My best friend has weird "nub" thumbs too! We also thought it meant she was good at math (which she is) are you? Maybe it's a sign of your impending genius!

These facts are so fun =) My boyfriend is the same way about coconut... loves the smell, can't stand the texture. I've tried to sneak it into meals but he knows every time. One random thing about me is that I have to sniff a cup or glass before pouring a drink into it. Who knows why! LOL.

Christina Main said...

I'm in literal shock on the coconut thing! Gasp! BUUUUUUUUUUUT I love you more for all the rest! You're too cute!

Megan McIlvaine said...

haha! i know. i'm actually sad that i don't like coconut. my dad has a german chocolate cake for his birthday every year, which means that i don't eat cake on his birthday. he's alright with that because that means more cake for him! :)

That miiiight just be the cutest baby picture of all time. A random fact about me is that I am really good at picking things up with my toes... haha.

Kari Haywood said...

I don't like straight coconut either. However, I've toasted it in the oven and LOVE it! If it's not toasted, you're right...very much a texture thing!

Amy said...

ok - i have finally found the reason we're not twins.
i LOVE coconut! :) hahahha
gecko = love ;)
i had no idea you were home schooled! that is awesome!!
and chickfila! yayyyyyyyyyyyyyy my roommate and i always joke about the "my pleasure thing" like if we were to say "the building is burning" chickfila worker: "oh, my pleasure" HAHAHHA ;)

Samantha@Elah Tree said...

You were home schooled!?! I don't know why but I'm always surprises when I find out someone is home schooled. I love coconut, like a crazy person. No worries, if we ever hangout that means more coconut for me, just like what you said about your dads cake.

Megan McIlvaine said...

haha. i was! i know, how did i turn out so normal?? ;) i absolutely loved being home schooled and getting to be involved in lots of extra curriculars. definitely a good experience :)

Megan McIlvaine said...

-- home school for the win! but for serious...i liked it. i did go to public school for kindergarten. my teacher wore a wig. hahah.
-- hahahaha. seriously. they say "my pleasure" to EVERYTHING.

Megan McIlvaine said...

Megan McIlvaine said...

Elizabeth Mayberry said...

Meg McIlvaine said...

Meg McIlvaine said...

Meg McIlvaine said...
