15 Facts about Lo at 14

Note to readers: Today brings not only the first day of Fall, but the 14th anniversary of the birth of Sweetanlo, my firstborn. So today she's posting 15 facts about herself. One for every year and one to grown on.

Sweetanlo's 15 Facts at 14.

  • 1. I'm an obsessive reader.

  • 2. I get to drive next winter. YAY!

  • 3. I love to travel.

  • 4. I love to watch old musicals.

  • 5. I'm taller than everyone in my family except my dad.

  • 6. I would rather stay up late than get up early any day.

  • 7. I own all 12 of Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events, and will be getting number 13, The End on the day it comes out October 13th which is a Friday. Ooh Spooky!

  • 8. 22 is my favorite number. Guess why!

  • 9. I love to eat New Mexican food.

  • 10. I've been playing the flute for 3 years, and I love to sing.

  • 11. One of my favorite bands is Casting Crowns.

  • 12. I have three best friends, we've known each other for 10 or 11 years. I love spending time with them.

  • 13. I call flip-flops slippers, because one of my best friends, Nan, is from Hawaii and she taught us to call them that.

  • 14. Nan is going to take me and our other friends to Hawaii in a couple years.

  • And one to grow on.
  • 15. I'm a total spendthrift and money tends to burn a hole in my pocket, so I love to shop.

See ya next year! (You can check out my blog, Sweetanlo's Soliloquy. Just email my dad at for the password. )

Great list! Wish I had a friend in Hawaii, would give me a great excuse to get back there! My daughter is so with you on #6, so am I to tell the truth!

Fantastic list! I love that you are an avid reader. And I would dearly love to become friends with the friend who is taking you to Hawaii! It's a beautiful place I would love to revisit.

We have many likenesses... but not #5. I'm quickly becoming the shortest in my family. My 6 year old is up to my shoulders. I never really saw myself as short until now...

Blessings to you!

Happy, happy birthday! According to your list, we have at least 8 things in common! ;)

Keep up all the good work, Sweetanlo. Being a young woman of integrity is something you will never, ever regret, I promise.
