Another TAG!!!

My pal Shawna tagged me (of course she did because she knows I stalk her blog)! This tag is to reveal 5 surprising or secret things about yourself so since my life is pretty much an open book (especially since I started blogging) I'll try to think of 5 things!
Here goes:
1) I used to be SHY. Yep, I mean very shy! You'd never know it now but man I would not have talked to anyone on the internet if my life depended on it. I would have never met up in person with someone I met online without having a "bodyguard" with me if at all. I was quite quiet in school! LOL! You'd never know it now! ;)
2) I was in a Beauty Pageant. Some of you already know this. Yep, in my Junior Year of High School I was in the "Miss Teen Massachusetts" pageant. With 100 other girls. Unlike Shawna ;) I didn't win but I was one of the top 35 finalists. It was fun and I think it helped me come out of my shell a bit. So although I could have killed my mom for entering me, after it was over I had a great time.
3) I lived in Hawaii. For 3 years when I was 10, 11, 12. When my parents were still married. My dad was stationed there in the Air Force. It was beautiful and I hated it! LOL! Yeah, if you are a 'white' kid living there it's not all paradise. I got picked on by the Locals in school big time. I was so glad to get out of there. Now in the cold winter, wishing I could go back! ;) I have also lived in Alabama, Ohio, Maryland, and Massachusetts.
4) I'm scared to death of dying. Can't even think about it without getting all freaked out so that's all I'm gonna say about that subject!
5) I never wanted kids. I changed my mind when I was 29 and got pregnant with Jake and then 3 years later had Josh. Up until that point I didn't want any kids of my own. I liked other people's kids but I liked giving them back more! ;) Now I have no idea what I did with my life without my guys!
So some may or may not be surprising but that's all I could think of! I told you I was an open book! ;)
I'm tagging: Rachael, MiYon, and Jolene, Kristi (getting you back for the email!) and M.E.! Happy Writing! And Happy Monday to the rest of you!
