30 Things

I was reading over blog-land today for a little inspiration and noticed that Sometimes Sweet did something fun a few days called Thirty Things. So now it's my turn [please please please also share some fun things about yourself!] And for those of you that I owe homemade goodies... I bought the supplies and I will be sending those puppies out this week! Sorry I'm slacking a bit!

Thirty things I betcha didn't know...

[01] My full name is Kara Diane Workman Hooker. Diane Workman is my middle name. Awesome, I know ;)

[02] I have two adorable doggies names Pete & Samson. We cuddle often.

[03] I also have a ferrett named Imogen. She's 5 years old and I named her after the main character in the movie Down to You. She enjoys playing tag with Pete & Samson. Samson, my 70 pound boxer, is afraid of her.

[04] I am deathy afraid of condensation and am probably the only one at the bar with my beer wrapped in napkins. I will cry if you touch me with condensation! {weird, I know}

[05] I always twist my can tops to the side. It's a habit, but it helps me always know which drink is mine.

[06] I am happiest outside. If I could live in a tree house I would. I would also sell my possessions in a heart beat if it meant I could free myself from capitolism and it's obsession with money.

[07] I am addicted to tattoos! I have a solar system themed quarter sleeve, the HRC campaigne logo on my left wrist, alpha & omega on my right wrist {getting covered soon}, stars on my lower back, a henna inspired flower on my food, a star and a swallow on my hip, some of the lyrics to Imagine on my shoulder blade, The Giving Tree up my side. I want more... I'm currently planning a chest piece :)

[08] I was on swim team for 10 years. I still miss the smell of the pool, however I do not miss the way it made my hair feel.

[09] I had dreadlocks for 7 months last year. My husband hated them, otherwise I would've kept them in longer.

[10] I have been married for 2.5 years. Our anniversary is August 8, 2008. I really want to go on a hot air balloon ride for our 5th!

[11] Sean and I picked out our future daughter's name while we were still in high school. Clementine.

[12] I have been with Sean for 10 years... he's my very best friend!

[13] I usually try to work out 3-4 times a week. My goal is 5. My workout usually consists of jogging and I really want to be able to run 5 miles straight by the end of the summer.

[14] My husband & I are thinking about buying our first house in August!!!!!

[15] When we move into a house, I want to get a cat and name him OR her ghandi. I already bought it a buddha-temple cat house.

[16] I consider myself to be a mix of Buddhist and Agnostic. I think when we die, our energy is recycled and we can be found in nature for eternity.

[17] I am a dreamer.

[18] I have a small obsession with kitchen plants. I'm always trying to plant herbs or grass... but it doesn't really work because our loft only has skylights. No windows.

[19] I have seasonal depression, and winter literally makes me sad.

[20] My favorite place ever is the river. I spend all of my weekends there when it's warm out.

[21] I used to rock climb in high school, and I really miss that. I think about starting again at least once or twice a week. I am afraid of failure.

[22] When I was little I had an imaginary friend named ''ghost''

[23] Halloween is my favorite holiday. Valentines Day is second. Obviously I have a candy obsession.

[24] I am in the process of applying to Grad School and I should find out any day now! I'm getting my Masters in Social Work with a Certificate in Gender Violence.

[25] I turn 25 on June 25th :) :) :)

[26] Speaking of birthday's.... Michael Jackson died on mine. Awesome.

[27] I currently work as a Substance Abuse Case Manager with teenagers. Part of me loves it, the other part hates it.

[28] I want to have kids in 3-4 years. Lots of them.... but I will settle with 2 unless I can convince Sean otherwise.

[29] When I was in high school I used to spend all of my extra time wandering around in the woods rather than going to parties or drinking. I used to pretend I was the only person for miles, and sometimes I would imagine what it would be like to actually live in the forest.

[30] I have the best friends in the world!!! {Really, I do!!!}


  1. ....and you like soggy salads & ... i'll spare the world the other thing you like to munch on!

    can't wait to see you & the mr. this weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. love 30 things! you're so rad :)

  3. Really interesting to read all of these. I have never thought of myself as being agnostic and Buddhist but I believe our energy is recycled too. x

  4. This is great! I'll try to do one too. :) I love your mindset on your beliefs. It's quite peaceful thinking it that way. Love that you have a ferret! Hahaha. TOO COOL. Clementine is suuuuuch a pretty name! Sorry I'm so random, but you're awesome pretty much.

    Have a wonderful day and no worries about the goodies. Take your time! :)

  5. 31. You're also a master at jello shooter races - with your partner in crime (me) :)


speak your mind! always!
