Day 2 - Educate on something you know a lot about.

Today's prompt - Educate us on something you know a lot about or are good at. Take any approach you'd like (serious and educational or funny and sarcastic).

This one threw me for a loop.  Hmm, there's a lot of things I know a little bit about but for some reason why couldn't pinpoint something I know a lot about.  I really don't give myself much credit I guess.

One thing, er, person I know a lot about is myself.  Over this past year alone I've learned more about me than ever before and I'm pretty sure it has to do with the Big Guy upstairs.  He makes me think. 
So, here's my list of things I know about me. 
Quirks, likes, dislikes, frustrations - you name it.

~ I'm terrible at saying "I'm sorry".  My husband can attest to that.  I'm working on it.
~ I'm a good mom.  I try my very best all the time.  Nowhere near perfect, but definitely good.
~ I'm great at making excuses for myself.
~ I could be a better wife.  My husband is awesome and we definitely are still learning how to do this marriage thing 3 years in so being a better wife is always something I'll strive towards.
~ I'm a good friend.  I love my friends so much and always try to be there for them.
~ I'm a good cook.  I make a mean lasagna, chicken and baked fish.
~ The sun shining makes me happy.  Automatic mood enhancer.
~ Praying makes me humbled.
~ Hearing my daughter pray makes me cry.
~ I drive too fast sometimes.  I've gotten better though.
~ I look best with dark hair.  I've tried to go lighter with highlights many times and it never, ever works.
~ I don’t do bangs well.  Also not a good hair idea.
~ I have big feet and I hate them.
~ I'm trying to be better about taking pictures and learning how to use my Nikon.
~ I have to wear mascara every day, specifically 2 kinds.  It gets the best results.
~ I feel prettiest when I wear black.
~ I always have and always will struggle with my weight.
~ Poor grammar makes me cringe.
~ I'll always consider myself "in progress".
~ I love my family more than anything.
~ I'm a proud child of God.

So - there you have it.  A bunch of tid-bits on information about myself.  Growing up and getting wiser to me means really taking the time to learn more about yourself.  This past year has definitely been a huge learning experience for me.  I've dug deep and remained thoughtful.  If you have any questions feel free to ask, I love sharing about myself.
