100 Things

100 things about me.
1. I am a child of God.
2. A wife.
3. A mother.
4. A sister.
5. A friend.
6. I am a survivor. A survivor of a TBI, school, Grainger's basketball, and the beginning of my cooking career. Some combinations can be lethal!
7. I am sincerely dyslexic. I spend more time decidiing which WAY to write something rather than which language to write it in, how to spell it, or whether or not it is the appropriate word to use, which are all common obstacles for me!
8. I LOVE to paint, draw, design, create, etc…..
9. But I am afraid to start. Afraid I will mess it up! I have TONS of ideass and nothing to show for it.
10. My hands touch my knees when I let them rest at my side!
11. My name is Tiffany Nicole and when I was 5, I received a Cabbage Patch doll for my birthday named Tiffany Nikki. In college I joked that I was named after a cabbage patch doll!
12. I LOVE fresh produce, like oranges, pineapples, mangoes, and on and on…
13. But I am afraid to get the juice all over me!!!
14. I think sour cream goes on anything.
15. I use fat free sour cream so I CAN put it on everything!
16. I eat salsa out of the jar.
17. When I go shopping at the mall, I don't pick out the fashions that catch my eye, I head straight to the clearance rack to see what COOL stuff I can get for the CHEAPEST price! It's like a contest!
18. And I really do have a competitive spirit……
19. And I'm stubborn.
20. I can't hold a serious conversation without THINKING of something funny!
21. I think I'm the only one who gets my sense of humor sometimes!
22. I have over 100 nicknames. Most of them are a tangent off of an earlier nickname. They all basically stem from each other.
23. I am directionally challenged. In accordance with the 2D maps that we refer to in order to find our way around town, North would be UP. South would be DOWN. I operate on a 'right,' 'left,' and 'straight' basis.
24. I cannot imagine having to live with stick straight hair. I love my curls and hate them. I might be better off with no hair.
25. I've actually almost had that 'do before!
26. I love rainy days! But not like I used to…. It used to mean laying extra hours in bed and reading a delicious book with a gentle pitter patter or torrential downpour.
27. But now I delight in splashing in puddles with Nicole or cuddling on the couch and watching movies or or or…
28. I am SO excited about a real New York winter!
29. I love snow!
30. I'm afraid I will also get REALLY tired of it REALLY fast. I could be in for a LONG winter!!!

38. And won't go near the real stuff!

40. At the end of the day, my sense of accomplishment is whether or not my family liked the meal and if they are full…..

45. I get it now!
46. I am a morning person at heart.
47. But I am being reformed by Dave-the-night-owl.
48. I LOVE avocados, but the more I eat them, the more I get a tingling sensation in my mouth. I am developing a biological resistance……

75. I am so excited that Dave is getting a miniature schnauzer puppy for Nicole's birthday….. (Don't tell her!)
76. I feel like I am getting the surprise!
