11 Random Facts About Me
1. I love peppermint candy. I buy enough candy canes after every Christmas (when they go to clearance pricing) to last through the year.
2. Baby Girl wore my wedding dress when she got married. I actually didn’t care all that much for the dress when I wore it, but it was perfect on her!
3. If I watch TV when I’m tired, no matter how much I want to see the show I’m watching, it’s almost guaranteed I’ll fall asleep. DH has spent almost as much time telling me how shows end as I have watching TV!
4. We have a bean bag chair that’s big enough for two adults to cuddle together in and filled with memory foam chunks! It’s so comfy!
5. My son, Buddy, peed on my foot earlier this evening while I was chatting on Facebook with Ginger from The Wild and Wonderful World of Gingerssnaps. And then a little while after that he peed on his Tonka Truck dump truck! Potty training isn't going so well.
6. My chickens lay brown and blue eggs. I love the range of blues the eggs are and that some of the brown ones have freckles!
7. I love the feeling of getting my toenails trimmed when they have grown out long. (I’m a freak and I know it.)
8. My favorite adult mixed beverage is a Dirty Vodka Martini, preferably with blue cheese stuffed olives as a garnish.
9. My favorite ice cream flavor is Breyer’s Rocky Road. It’s deliciously awesome!
10. I miss the sound of the whipoorwill as the stars come out and the lightning bugs rise out of the damp grass.
11. I feel true regret when I think that Buddy may never know what it’s like to run barefoot through that same damp grass, jumping to catch fireflies to keep in a jar by his bedside.

4. What is your favorite color? Blue
5. Who is your favorite President? I don’t really get into politics, so if I had to pick a favorite president I’d pick Lincoln.
6. What is your favorite type of food? I love vegetables. So much that I could actually be a vegetarian if I didn’t enjoy eating meat so much!
7. Do you believe in ghosts? I’m not certain; but I think they probably exist.
8. If you had only one day left to live and you knew about it what would you do? Spend the day having fun with DH and my kids.
9. What is your favorite sport? I’m not really into sports, but I occasionally enjoy watching football.
10. Do you fold your pizza in half, keep it flat or eat it with a fork and knife? If it’s too hot to hold, I eat it with a fork. If the slices are hugs, I fold them in half. Otherwise, I keep it flat.
11. What is the craziest thing you have ever done? Deciding to have a baby at 37 feels pretty crazy. (I’ve done waaay crazier, but I’m not sharing it here!)
