I Belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints

Thanks to Marla for the inspiration behind today's title, a clear admission of who I am and what I believe.

Anyway, as promised today is the day! Drumroll, please... I am going to tell you the truth about all my lies! (Insert "Little Lies" by Fleetwood Mac here for background effect)

1. I love, love, love to exercise. Actually, I don't. I do it, though.
2. My husband and I met on a blind date. TRUE! We were set up by my roomate and his friend, who just happened to be best friends. I was pursuing a mission for my church at the time and he was the 3rd blind date my friends had set me up on that month in an effort to remind me that I wasn't entering a convent, lol! The first two blind dates were anything but fun, and my attitude about the third one was pretty sour. In fact I wore overalls because I was too comfortable to change into anything sassy. Karma got her revenge on me... because we hit it off so well that he took me back to his parents' house later that night to introduce me to them!
3. I've never had a cavity in my life! Half true - I just found out I have 4. My FIRST 4, though. I have not made an appointment to have them filled yet. We'll discuss my abhorrance of dentists later.
4. I am 1/4 Hawaiian. 1/4 Italian, actually. But I'll explain why I have a Hawaiian name for inquiring minds. My mom was born there and felt genuinely connected to the culture. My best friend growing up was Hawaiian, we celebrated Hawaiian style, I learned to hula at the age of 5 and began performing with my mother (who later went on to compete in the well known Merrie Monarch Festival), and eventaully had the opportuntiy to live in the islands after we had our first child.
5. I hate sports because I am no good at them. I love sports and am okay at them. :) I played softball for 10 years and enjoyed basketball, but both my viola teacher and my mother were afraid they were going to have to insure my fingers if I got too involved.

So, Zoe (you can breathe now) and Rachelle got it right! Good for you girls!!!

Thanks for clearing that up for us, Lei. Otherwise I never would have guessed.

Rachelle said...

I got it right! Woohoo! And thank you for declaring your beliefs so thoroughly. I would have never know you were one of those evil Mormons otherwise. Oh wait! I am one too. Ok, I take back the evil part.

I'm a Mormon, yes I am . . .
and if you want to study Mormons
I'm a living speciman . . .

I like the IDEA of exercising. When it comes to putting it into practice, I'm not so keen.
