100 Things About Me...That I Don't Think You Know

I promise that starting tomorrow we will have regular posts again. I have kind of been hiding from the world. Well, I'm back. Tomorrow and Thursday we will have picture posts from Peanut's birthday and from my camping trip last weekend. Then next week I am doing a week long series about pumping.

On to the list!

  1. My name is Sarah Elizabeth, this translates to Princess and Gift from God, it was a given that I would be spoiled.

  2. I really want to be part of a revolution.

  3. The only reason I don't cover up when I breastfeed in public is because I found out that people will come over and look under my cover anyways.

  4. Breastfeeding for as long as possible has become a challenge now, its less about what is best at this point.

  5. I have only had 3 other "real" boyfriends besides Psycho Knight.

  6. I'm not entirely sure why we have to give people we write about nicknames; I think first names would suffice.

  7. My first concert was Britney Spears; this makes me hang my head in shame.

  8. I may act kind of slutty, but I can count on my fingers and also name all of the people I have been intimate with.

  15. I pick at my skin, especially the bumps on my arms, when I am depressed or anxious.

  16. I recently found out that number 15 is a form of self mutilation. There is a name for it and everything, not that I remember what that name is.

  17. Some days they anxiety is so bad that I can barely breathe when I think about getting out of bed and going to work.

  18. I withdraw from Peanut and his needs when I get depressed. To make up for this I over compensate by forcing myself to be ultra attentive.

  19. I really want another baby, like tomorrow.

  20. While I want another baby, I am scared of giving birth again because I have had issues from the epidural and the Stadol they put me on was scary so I will do it naturally next time.

  21. I love sensations; I will go out in the winter with no coat on just to feel the cold.

  22. I got a new piercing a few months ago, but I can't tell you about it.

  39. I still get angry when I think about how my labor went.

  40. Psycho Knight, who was just my best friend at the time, was there when I had Peanut. Not in the room during the actual pushing, but he was there for most of the labor.

  41. He has no idea how much that means to me.

  42. I have a whole list of blog topics that I have never written about.

  76. I loved that truck very much and would drive a big truck if I could afford to.

  77. I used to shave almost my whole body.
