Blog Everyday in May Challenge: Days 1-5

So I decided to go ahead and link up with Story of My Life the Blog and participate in the blog every day in May the challenge.
Here are days 1-5 that I already missed:
Day 1: The story of your life in 250 words or less (or one paragraph... no one will be counting your words... probably)
I was born in Brooklyn, NY and lived there until I was 4. Then moved to Memphis, TN, then Edison, NJ, then back to Memphis, TN. I lived in Memphis (Germantown and Cordova really) from 2nd grade until Sophomore year of college. I attended Bradley University in Peoria, IL, where I met my husband Justin through mutual friends.

We got married in 2005 and we now live in a suburb of Chicago, not too far from the Wisconsin border. He does technical support and I am a project manager. We have two cats named Guido (5) and Tobi (9) and we love sports, hanging out at home, video games, and going on vacation. I love working out, running, knitting, crochet, scrapbooking, reading, blogging, and being with my family.
Day 2: Educate us on something you know alot about or are good at.
I like to think I am pretty great at doing crafts. I love scrapbooking, but not for others unless it is a book about a tropical vacation. All of my scrapbooks around Mexico are 50 plus pages long. Sometimes my friend and I will go scrapbook at Archivers in the mall or at each others houses.  I also like to paint and make things that come in a kit, like these cool foam houses we have for different holidays.
Day 3: Things that make you uncomfortable
Lets see this one is not too hard. Usually large crowds make me pretty uncomfortable because I am so short. I always feel like 7 years old if I am stuck in a large crowd or a crowded elevator. Also if I have a plan for something and it does not go as scheduled I can feel pretty uncomfortable about what is going on.
Day 4: Favorite Quote and Why You Love It

"We'll be friends forever,
won't we, Pooh?" asked Piglet.

"Even longer," Pooh answered.- Winnie the Pooh
I have a few friends I don't get to see as often as I like, but this quote reminds me that we will still be friends forever, if not longer. I especially think of this when I think of my best friend Lauren, we have already been friends forever, so what is forever more!
Day 5:  Publicly profess your love and devotion for one of your blogger friends.
Alright I think for this one I will just list a few of some of the blogs I love reading, I have so many I truly enjoy:
My old friend, who is a mommy, teacher, and baker- Sarah @ Moske Monkey Business
A girl whose running amazes me and who is an awesome new mommy- Caroline @ Simply Smithwick
A hip Tampa Runner Girl- Meghan @ Little Girl in The Big World
Another runner and Tampa girl- Tori @ In Love and Peanut Butter
