Random Facts

(After being tagged several times recently on Facebook I put together this list. I thought since I'd share it here on the blog...just for fun.)

25 random facts about Liz Dixon---

1. I love having a tall husband. Just makes me feel gitty inside to be able to look up to him all the time.

2. I’m a reality tv-junkie!

3. If I could go back to school to have any career, I would be a nurse. All my medical experiences have taught me so much about the importance and role of a nurse. I had some amazing nurses throughout my hospital stays and also had many awful nurses. But I will always be thankful for those wonderful nurses, and I would want to be one of those nurses that really cares for her patients.

4. I have five kids under 5.

5. I have a magazine fetish. I read and collect magazines.

6. I do not use salad dressing. I eat my salads DRY. Always have, always will.

7. I make up words all the time. Ask Donny!

8. After 10:30pm I am a very silly girl. You should see me playing Scatagories at that hour.

9. I love to cook.

10. My first car was a white convertible Mazda Miata! His name was Snoopy. I LOVED that car!! Thanks’ Dad!

11. I’m an 80’s girl! I LOVE 80’s music!! Takes me back to many fun memories with my sister.

12. My relationship with Christ is by far the most important part of my life. Everything I have been through is a testimony of his grace and mercy, his strength and his healing powers. I believe in the power of prayer!!

13. I LOVE, LOVE being in front of large crowds. I majored in Personal/Interpersonal Communications and Public Speaking. I prefer to prepare a speech and then present as apposed to speaking off the cuff or impromptu speaking.

14. I love planning and making preparations for events...birthdays, game nights etc.

15. I LOVE thunderstorms…but I am afraid of the dark. (Yes, I still get scared at night when Donny is out of town and the house is dark. I usually end up singing Jesus loves me or whatever the first song that pops into my head to give me comfort).

16. I had a hysterectomy at age 27.

17. I go crazy over SNOW. Even though I was born and raised in Texas and have never really experienced a real snow filled winter.

18. I repeated 10th grade. ( I transferred to a private school, after being out of school for some time due to illness)

19. I am a candy-holic.

20. I had brain surgery the week after I graduated from high school. Thankfully, I was able to walk the stage to receive my diploma.

21. I’m a HUGE Rachel Ray fan!! I love her 30 min meal shows, cookbooks, talk show, and personality. I find that either people love her or hate her…I’m LOVIN Her!!

21. I love keeping up with celebrity gossip. I know, silly… but I do.

22. In high school I was a cheerleader, mascot, student council vice president, in the drama club and key club.

23. I’ve always looked up to and respected my Dad. He was my biggest role model growing up. I learned what having convictions, morals and beliefs really meant, from watching him. I am the person I am today because of my Dad.

24. I always wanted to be a mom, because I wanted to be just like my mom: Making special snacks for us after school, being involved in PTA, volunteering for school events, leading Bible studies with other moms, etc.

25. My favorite color has always been red…but as have grown up I’m falling more in love with the color orange. It is in the red family after-all. The color orange just makes me happy! And I did marry a huge TENNESSEE fan…so it’s always “Go Big Orange” around our house.
