Well, here we go! If you are reading this, you are one lucky duck! This is my first post, and what better way to start this blog than to introduce myself with 20 random facts about me!? Most of these you will be able to log down in your "book of useless information" - which might very well become a daily companion while following this blog - (so don't lose it) - but here goes!

  1. I am a proud mama of 5! I have 2 sons and 3 daughters. 1 daughter is from my previous marriage, and 4 are step children.
  2. I got re-married May of 2015 to a charming ginger who is more like me than I could ask for. It's like being best friends with myself. (That has pro's and con's....) 
  3. I am 3rd of 7 children. I have 2 brothers and 4 sisters. 
  4. I have a degree in Architectural Technology as well as one in Construction Management. I love to design things and watch them come to fruition. 
  5. I am horribly terrified of moths. Not even going to talk about this. Maybe later...
  6. I still have never seen Top Gun. (Gasp! Scoff! I know...I just need to get my hands on a copy that isn't a VHS. I am able and willing, I promise!)
  7. I have naturally curly hair. And LOVE it! That is rare, no? I sometimes straighten my hair, and then have no idea what to do with it! 
  8. I really really love movie theater popcorn. 
  9. Favorite junk food is brownies.
  10. My favorite healthy food is apples and KRAFT string cheese. 
  11. I am a string cheese snob.
  12. I color coordinate my shoes and the closthes in my closet.
  13. I love makeup. 
  14. I scrapbook!!!
  15. Photography is a passion of mine. I'm still learning. Passion is there - skill....not so much.
  16. The BOOM of fireworks is magical to me. It's my favorite sound. Next to my kids laughing.
  17. Pumpkin. *Sigh* Pumpkin anything. Anytime. All year long. 
  18. I really, really, really, really, want a red Tibetan Mastiff or a mop dog. 
  19. My hair grows abnormally fast. (Usually a great thing, except for when I have highlights)
  20. I am really excited to start this blog! Nervous, but excited!

Well, there you have it!
