SEVEN

A few weeks ago, David and Victoria Beckham welcomed their first daughter into the world. I was walking through our suite lobby when the news was announcing her birth and that D and B had named her  
Harper Seven

And I started thinking how  the number 7 seems to show up in my life in weird, unexpected and slightly creepy ways. Just a few examples:

-My sister was born on a 7th
-My first date was on a 7th
-I started my job on a 7th
-I dated the same guy for 7 years
-We also broke up on a 7/7
-One of my best friend's Rina was born on the 7th
-My first boyfriend was born on a 7th
-I got my first apartment on a 7th
-I live in apartment 2203 - 2+2+3=7
-I graduated college in 2007
-7 is the number of times I shouted at the TV last night when Obama interrupted the Bachelorette

..........

I don't believe in "lucky' or "unlucky" numbers but I do find it interesting. Maybe I'll have 7 children. Or be a $7 billionaire. Maybe seven is the number of people I'll unknowingly insult this week or the number of attempts I'll make before I actually go to a Taylor Swift concert.
Any of you have favorite or least favorite numbers?

I can't believe that you ONLY yelled at Obama 7 times last night. My wedding anniversary is on 3/31 (3+3+1 = 7). :)

Ashley said...

megan said...

How in the world did you remember that your first date was on the 7th? You have one good memory. I'm really not sure why, but my favorite number is 3!

annahita said...

the number 14 has a very similar connection to my life [and my husbands], crazy how that works out!

Lindsey said...

How interesting!! I haven't even watched the Bach yet because Twitter blew up saying Obama interuppted. Now I'm pissed and I'm sure I will yell at my DVR when I replay it back. BOO OBAMA!

Katie said...

A. Go play the lotto.
B. Only 7 times you screamed at Obama? I'm not the biggest Ashley H fan, but I'd much rather watch her (simply for her wardrobe) than him. TRUTH.
C. #3 is my # of choice. If you billionaire and beat me by $4, let's split it and call it even? ;)

Young and Fabulous said...

caley-jade rosenberg said...

Hahaha, your last one made me laugh!
I have a thing about ALWAYS looking at a digital clock when it is 12:34 so the numbers read 1234!

Shannon said...

19 Shows up a lot for me. I was born on the 19th at the 19th hour, I was 19 inches long and my mom was 19, I always seem to look at a clock at 7:19 (my b/day is 7/19), never fails.

Megan said...

I hope you make $7 billion dollars because I know you will share one teeny million with me. : )

PS: I hate odd numbers. Total fact. That's why we got married on 10/2/10.

Elle Sees said...

10 and 18, my birthdate. I encounter those numbers constantly!
