25 things you don’t know about me…..Melina’s edition

After Janelle’s idea to write a list of 25 thing we didn’t know about her, we decided it would be a good way for you all to get to know each of us better. So here is my list of 25 things you didn’t know about me:

  1. My name was going to be Renee but while my mom was pregnant, she and my dad watched the James Bond movie “For Your Eyes Only,” the bond girl in the movie was named Melina Havelock so I’m Melina Renee.
  2. My initials have never changed, even though my last name has. I have always been MRW.
  3. I’m a Colorado native, I was born at Swedish Hospital in Denver.
  4. I’m a middle child. I have two bothers and there is less then 3 years in-between their ages.
  5. In 7th grade I went to Honduras and Roatan with a group of my peers and science teacher.
  6. I enjoy listening to music and going to concerts. I don’t know who sings most of the time but know the words to a wide range of songs.
  7. Matchbox Twenty was/is my all time favorite band, I don’t listen to them much anymore but if I hear one of their songs, you can bet I know most of the words.
  8. I like to put M&M’s in my popcorn. And M&M’s were the favor at my wedding, Matt & Melina.
  9. I took dance clasess the majority of my childhood, Jazz, Tap, and Ballet.
  10. I have been bungee jumping more then once, my 1st time was outside of Circus Circus in Las Vegas as a teenager.
  11. Collecting post-it notes, pretty pens, and office supplies is a bad habit of mine.
  12. My first car was a silver soft top Jeep Wrangler. I LOVED it and hope to have one again, next time it will be a 4 door though.
  13. I have shoulder dimples, they are very obvious and I have been asked about them more then you would think.
  14. Watching reality tv competition shows with my husband is a guilty pleasure. Survivor and Big Brother are 2 of our favorites.
  15. I dislike the color pink, ketchup and ham.
  16. I have coached my boys soccer teams, even though I would say I’m not really good at coaching.
  17. In highschool I waitressed at The Black Eyed Pea and through college I worked at an assisted living facility.
  18. I went to CU Boulder, I almost have a degree in Integrative Physiology. I’m hoping to finish it sometime soon.
  19. I have been a stay at home mom for the past 11 years. In that time I have also done in home daycare, some part time office work, and volunteered in my MOPS group and at my boys school.
  20. I love doing DIY projects; painting, crafting, organizing, building things….I enjoy it all.
  21. 4 or my 5 grandparents are still alive. We lost my one grandma almost 4 years ago but I was lucky to have her a part of my life until I was 30.
  22. I grew up with a lot of extended family around. Family and traditions are important to me.
  23. I love puzzle games, like Sudoku, or from back in the day Tetris.
  24. I have been know to say you should only run if being chased but while organizing a 5k fundraiser over a year ago, I decided I should be able to run one and started running semi regularly.
  25. Writing about or bringing attention to myself is not something I’m very comfortable with, so this blog is definitely a learning and growing experience!!

Thanks for reading and be sure to check back frequently so you wont miss 25 thing you didn’t know about Sarah.
