Monday Meet Up Linky Party

Hey Everyone! It's time for another Monday Meet Up!

meet our guest

Hi!  I am Melissa and blog over at Adventures with Captain Destructo. The blog follows my daily adventures with my crazy and quite spirited son aptly nicknamed Destructo.  This year I have also started blogging more about me instead of all Destructo and am following my New Year's Resolutions each month to see what I actually accomplish.  I am so happy to be able to co host this hop with the lovely Brooke.
Here are ten random facts about me:
1)  I hate grey aliens with the big eyes with a fiery passion.  They petrify me.  Weird I know.
2)  My current favorite Bible verse is from Philippians 4:6-7.  "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."  It is fitting for a person who struggles with anxiety at time.
3)  My all time favorite blog post I wrote was As I Sit Rocking my Son.  I still get teary eyed when I read it since it mainly touches on how fast children grow and it seems like the first two years of Destructo's life have literally flown by in the blink of an eye.
4)  Something I am excited about is the blog series I am going to be doing on Thursday's about raising spirited kids.  You can check out the first weeks here.
5)  I am an animal science major so I know tons of useless trivia about animals.  Just ask me if you ever want a random factoid.
6)  My favorite season is spring although fall is a close second.  I see God so much in spring time in the flowers blooming all the birds having babies.  Plus it is so nice to feel happy again after a long dreary winter.
7)  The household chore I would never ever do if I could get away with it is dusting.  I hate it.  It makes me sneeze.  I put it off way too long until I can see a layer of dust and then I put it off a little bit more in the hopes my mom will do it.  She cleans houses for a living and can't stand things like this.   It sometimes works.
8)  I am an avid bird watcher.  One of the highlights of my life was seeing a Roseate Spoonbill fly over head when we were on vacation one year and seeing loons (which are one of my top favorite birds) in the wild.
9)  I am a cherry coke addict.  I gave it up for Lent.  It has only been three days and I am already not happy.
10)  My all time favorite movie is Sweet Home Alabama and I have probably watched it 500 times.  That isn't that much of an exaggeration either.
