Happy Birthday Tanya!

As today is Tanya’s 25th birthday, I’ve written 25 facts about her that you probably wouldn’t know without living with her. Happy birthday, Tanya!! We love you.

  1. If it were up to Tanya, she would still be in high school.
  2. If it were up to Tanya, she would still be in high school dating Troy Bolton. She even had a dream about this. She woke me up in the middle of the night to tell me all about it.
  3. She recently had another dream where she was on the current edition of the Bachelor, and was handed a rose after a group date with the Bachelor.
  4. She loves to sleep and needs a minimum of 15 minutes before getting out of bed.
  5. She loves pajamas. She swears that she could never have enough. Sometimes I have to remind her to change out of them when we leave the house.
  6. Every night, Tanya goes to bed with socks on. Once her feet are warm, she kicks them off. By the end of the week there are always multiple pairs of socks at the foot of the bed.
  7. She had $17 in her bank account when we got married.
  8. One of my favorite ways to drive Tanya crazy is to move items around in the kitchen. Sometimes I like to move things like the toaster and spice rack by an inch just to watch the aftermath. Without fail, as soon as Tanya walks into the kitchen, she knows that something is up. She then moves everything back to its proper place and checks all the cabinets and drawers just to make sure I didn’t touch anything inside.
  9. She doesn’t remember the first time we met. My roommate and I visited her in her apartment at BYU. She does, however, remember meeting my cute roommate during that visit.
  10. She loves to play UNO on XBOX.
  11. Her favorite food is juice.
  12. Her favorite candy is Almond Joy.
  13. She doesn’t like onions, applesauce, and raisins.
  14. One of Tanya’s New Year’s resolutions from 2008 was to go on a one month fast from juice. I’m not sure what prompted this resolution, but it never happened. Impressively, she did stick with all her other resolutions.
  15. She is a perfectionist.
  16. Tanya doesn’t need or use deodorant. Apparently Tanya doesn’t sweat.
  17. Tanya is a very intelligent person, but she does enjoy the occasional airhead moment every now and then. One of my favorites was when Tanya asked me to blow up some balloons for Marisa’s first birthday party. When Tanya realized that the first balloon wasn’t floating, she asked me, “What’s wrong with this balloon? Why isn’t it floating?” I didn’t know how to respond to what she had just said. I was shocked.
  18. Tanya is so tiny that she’s outweighed by her 10 year old nephew. Tanya is also 3 months pregnant.
  19. She loves reality TV. She watches the Bachelor, American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, So You Think You Can Dance, Real Housewives of Orange County and Atlanta, John and Kate Plus 8, the show with the Duggar family, Small People Big World, and many others that I’m forgetting.
  20. She is the oldest of 3 children in her family and loves to be bossy.
  21. Tanya vows to only run on a treadmill.
  22. Tanya kind of had a meltdown when she turned 22 because of how old she thought she was.
  23. She has a couple of gray hairs.
  24. She is an excellent mother.
  25. She is an excellent wife.
