Coming Clean...

So...I've been tagged by this cute store and this fun momma, and I decided to accept the challenge...to TELL THE TRUTH and give you 10 facts about me that you probably didn't know before...


The rules are as follows...

1) Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in content or design.
2) Show the 7 winners names and links on your blog, and leave a comment informing them that they were tagged...
3) List at least 10 honest things about yourself.

***
And...here are my 10 things...buckle up...


1. The summer before my senior year in high school, I got veneers over my four top front teeth. Thankfully my teeth were always straight and I never had to have braces, but I had a gap in between my two front teeth and the teeth beside them were shorter. So, in a few hours, I got a perfect smile! That's the way to do it, if you ask me...and to continue on with teeth honesty, I haven't been to the dentist in at least SIX YEARS...embarrassing!!!!
2. On my 16th birthday, my parents surprised me with a beautiful red camaro! It was sitting in a dentist office parking lot with a "For Sale" sign on it. But, when we got out to check out the price, it said "NOT For Sale...Happy 16th Birthday, Brittney!" I was shocked...and loved the car so much that I drove it until I was 23...that's 7 years!!!!
3. On Wednesday, I came home, turned on the faucet, and NO WATER came out! Guess who didn't pay the bill? So embarrassing!!!! But, to my defense, when I got the late notice and checked our on-line bill pay, the amount due was the EXACT SAME as last month...so I assumed it had been paid...I didn't even check the date...OOPS! ... Thankfully, the man with the magic wand came and turned our water back on within 30 minutes...and it only cost $20.00!

4. I don't wash my face at night before bed. In middle school, I started to and broke out more...so I stopped!
5. My feet are SUPER claustrophobic! If my feet get too hot, or I can't wiggle my toes in my shoes, I panic. So, I rarely wear shoes with socks...and really prefer flip flops! It's my favorite thing about the summer.
6. I own a sweet little house in Abilene, Texas. It was willed to me by my Papaw and was the house that my mom grew up in! It would make the perfect little shabby chic cottage type house!

7. During my senior year in high school, Thursdays were dress up days during football season. So, on clown day, I seemed to be one of the few students that dressed up! (I actually won "Best Dressed" for that one!) During Pre-Cal, my friend Thompson and I were taking pictures together while doing a group assignment on the floor! ... At that moment, my mean teacher got so mad and SENT ME TO THE HALL! Seriously...am I in 1st grade? When she came and talked to me about it, I seriously almost took her picture...if I could have only been so brave!!!

8. I totally believed in Santa Claus until 4th grade...and dumb Vince VanCleave is the one that told me! Bless my heart!
9. I have met very few famous people...but I have met Leslie Nielsen at the Kiva Inn in Abilene when I was about 3 and got his autograph on my kid's menu. ... And, the summer before my freshman year at Baylor, I visited my RMY, Sharee, in Midland and met Matthew McConaughey at the Country Club. He was super drunk but still super cute...and, we got to take a picture with him.

10. My pre-teen heartthrobs...Joey from NKOTB, Nolan Ryan (I had about 100 of his baseball cards neatly organized in a binder) and George Straight (I went to at least 6 of his concerts). I mean, who doesn't love middle aged men when you're 8? My walls were proudly covered in pics of these guys!



So, there you go...

Now...I want to hear from YOU....

Sarah & Sharee: Because they're two of my longest and dearest friensds and I want to see if they can tell me something that I don't already know!
Kori: Becuase she's a brand new blogger! YAY!
Molly: Because I know her post will make all of us laugh!
Mary G.: Because she's an amazing lady that means so much to Matt!
Laura Sue: Because we share a bday and I have a feeling she'll have some good ones!
Mary & Baby Joy: Because I'm praying for this sweet family and would love to know more about this amazing Momma!

Wow, I have some things in commom with you! I too haven't been to the dentist in a while and I don't wash my face at night. I too find that everytime I try to do it, my face breaks out!! I belived in Santa way too long (and played with dolls even longer) and while I didn't have a crush on Nolan Ryan, I was in LOVE N'Sync and George Strait (I went to his concert with my BFF every year), I mean what Texas girl didn't love Pure Country?

OK, I won't forget to do this but I'm thinking, so it may be a day or two. I think I knew most of those things about you, except for the water bill part. So funny!
