A Moment of Randomness...

A few random things about me...

Fall is my absolute, most favorite time of the year...simply because my favorite outfit is a sweatshirt or hoodie, with shorts and flip flops.

I can predict what is going to happen in almost all Lifetime movies, and be 100% correct.

I love to buy things for my house, but they then end up in one of the spare bedrooms for months until I figure out what to do with them. For example, I have a clock that I begged for at Christmas of 2010. Ended up getting the clock, and it still is not hung up anywhere, simply because I can't decide where to put it.

I want to be a person who loves to read. I have attempted this several times, but the only books I like to read thus far are the bible and the twilight saga...oh, and I guess Charlotte's Web when I was a kid....I had the whole first chapter memorized at one point.

I am totally a scaredy-cat.....of heights, SPIDERS, the dark, certain areas of town at night (some during the day!), the back of my trailblazer at night (someone could be hiding in there, lol), attic spaces, basements, shower drains (the boogey monster could come up through there), and the list goes on and on....

I love my dog as if she was my child. I know some people think this is crazy, but I don't know what I would do if something happened to her. She is perfect for me...and is also a scaredy-cat as well.

I am very competitive and I love playing games...specifically monopoly, spades, gin rummy, Seinfeld trivia, nertz (only with my sis *Calie Taylor* as my partner), and really any card game.

I have a knack for speaking with sales people or customer service people on the phone. I am often asked to call for people and pretend to be them so their problem will get taken care of, and usually get something for free!!

I love to eat out, and could possibly do it for every meal if it was affordable. With that being said, I do not love to cook, lol, and I would never do it if I didn't have to.

I love to people sister and I used to sit and pretend we were people we were watching and make up conversation they would be times.

Whenever I eat tic-tacs, I have to have an even number of them in my mouth....why? you ask...well, because when is it ever right to be odd??

I like to smell things....erasers (*Heather Ohl* is right there with me, lol!), plastic blow up things for the pool in the summer, sharpies or really any kind of marker (especially the grape scented ones...), newspapers, gasoline, bleach....and it's not like I go around sniffing these things all the time, I just like the smell of them.

I absolutely do not handle being bored well.

I like to pour juice into a cup, freeze it, and then eat it with a spoon later. Or, even better, freezing a capri sun drink...that is fabulous!!

I am a sucker for tv shows that are centered around high school or college kids...probably because I would go back to that time in a heartbeat. I would even move back into the dorms, as long as all my friends were there too!

I used to be a major germaphobe....there was one period of my life where my bare feet didn't touch the ground, even in my own house, for a very long time. Of course, I am now over this, and work in a hospital....germ city!!

I could watch movies from the 80's over and over.

I love road trips. I could drive anywhere, at anytime, on any amount of sleep. Preferably at night, with the radio blaring songs that remind me of being on a highway at night...funny, I know.

I would love to be the person that gets to pick out the music that plays in the background during television shows.

I am a wife, daughter, sister, friend, charge nurse, babysitter, dishwasher, house cleaner, defensive driver, prayer warrior, helper, organizer, confidant, and so much more....

I am Mary Margaret Martin.


  1. I love it. And you can make all my phone calls to customer service reps from now on!!!

  2. Mary, I am so proud of you! You probably get tired of hearing this from me.... but you do it for me! I loved reading all your little quirps but I already (as mom) knew most of them. Now your a mother with a long haul in front of you... you'll just keep loving and doing and before you know it, you'll be a grandmom! I love you, I love Cory and I love Spice....I thank God for you and your family everyday. Enjoy life!
