You’ll learn tidbits about me, through reading my posts.
Yet I thought it would be fun to make a list of 101 random things about me.
Here goes…

101 Things About Me

1. Sometimes we have cereal for supper. I’m completely OK with that.

2. My Twins were born by emergency c-section. Shortly put, one started pushing the other out causing a whole mess of chaos. The in-utero bully is still the bully of the other, to this day.

3. I am the youngest of 7 – an Oops a miracle

4. I have an intense fear of spiders – super intense!

5. Whenever at home, I wear PJ’s or Yoga Pants – I’m all about total comfort over anything.

12. Both my parents have passed, yet I know they are with me.

13. I have watched The Biggest Loser while eating potato chips.

18. I am very patriotic and love my country. Yet the extreme winters are enough to make me flee.

20. There was a time when I considered myself a ‘twi-hard’. I even met Chaske Spenser’s family. I’m over it now.

29. I took Nursing in college

30. A pet peeve of mine is seeing kids walking UP the slide at a playground. It’s like driving down the wrong side of the road. Where are their parents?
