25 Things About Liz

Just for fun, today I thought I'd make a list of 25 random things you may not know about me.  Just think of this as the typical "100 Things About Me" list that I should've written for my 100th post about 200+ posts ago and never finished.  Twenty-five is hard enough.

So without further ado...

  1. I have a fascination with books.  Not just reading them, but I love the covers... to smell them, feel them, and I always judge a book by its cover.
  2. My feet are always cold.
  3. I have a fear of being trapped in a fire.
  4. It freaks me out to be upside down, so I do not like standing on my head and never learned how to do a cartwheel.  Somersaults were even debatable.
  5. I do not watch any of the most popular TV shows like The Office, Lost, 24, etc....
  6. Speaking of Lost... I don't get it.  Really.  I've tried.
  7. The only vacation destination I love is Disney World.
  8. Everyone thinks my husband is younger than me, when in fact, he is 7 years older than me.
  9. I have never seen any of the Rocky movies, nor do I care to, for that matter.
  10. My full given name is Elizabeth.  I was named after royalty.  :)
  11. My favorite movie of all time is Anne of Green Gables, which I guess is more like an epic series, since it spans 4 VHS tapes.
  12. I took piano lessons from age 4 to 16.
  13. Psalm 27 is my favorite.
  14. Ephesians is my favorite book of the Bible.
  15. John Piper is my favorite non-fiction author.
  16. The attribute of God that I love the most is His sovereignty.
  17. I have never ice skated, roller bladed, or skied.
  18. I own 3 pairs of running shoes.
  19. My favorite food is Chinese.
  20. I never tried tapioca pudding until I was 35 years old, and I discovered I like it.
  21. I had a brief try at scrapbooking but found I was too much of a perfectionist for it to be a relaxing hobby.  It would take me hours just to create one page.
  22. I am a recovering perfectionist.  :)
  23. Whenever I am driving down the street and see a cat I say, "Kitty Kitty", every single time.  I don't know why.
  24. I used to sew my own clothes.
  25. I just bought a Flip Mino camcorder, which I plan to use very soon to produce riveting vlogs for you to view.

So there you have it.  Twenty-five random facts that you never wanted to know about me.  Thrilling, huh?


  1. Fun list! It took me FOREVER to write my 100 things post.

    I've never thought about thinking of a favorite attribute of God. His sovereignty is a big one. For a long time I was "stuck" (but in a good way) on His faithfulness: just couldn't think of it enough.

  2. Liz,
    I find these so fascinating. I LOVE chinese food....can you eat with chop sticks? Where do you go for good chinese around here? I go to the Chinese House on Mishawaka street/across from the 7-11. It has the best chinese that I've found around here. The owners know me, cause I stop in so often (would explain the 20lbs that I need to lose). I walk in and they say, (with chinese accent) General Tso's, pork fried rice, egg drop soup....and I say, "Yup". I always order the same dish at every restaurant I go to....I have no imagination. I can't wait to see more vlogs...another Day at the office would be great! :D
