I bet you didn't know.........

I got this idea from a blog I follow, but I am going to alter it a bit because there is no way there are 30 thing about me that are interesting. 

20 Interesting Things about me
1) I love sweet or Bing cherries, I eat them by the truck load.
2) I have been riding motor cyles since I was about 5 years old.  (ummm, mini bike too)

 3) I am a Daddy's girl and was a poster child for Tomboys when I was younger
4) I think my parents are amazing people and I adore them both. 
5) I am a closet NSYNC fan (boy band from way back)

You are a Dancing Queen, young and sweet, only seventeen....oooooo, oooooo      ok, ok,.....I'll stop.

6) I love ABBA (80's band)
7) I hate my upper arms and my neck area-if I had the money, they'd be fixed.  YESTERDAY
8) I dislike shopping
9) My favorite flowers are gladiolas

10) I wanted to be a veterinarian, but couldn't afford college in 1980 when I graduated from high school. 
11) I have more patience with animals than I do people. 
12) My favorite color is sapphire blue.

This is NOT me, our dumpsters are green.  Just sayin'

13) I can't pass up a chance to dumpster dive, the thrill of the search is too much fun
14) I think my sister gives of herself more often than I
15)  I have never smoked pot or taken illegal drugs..........that's right.....never. 
Looks so harmless...........

16) My high school years were painful and I was a shy, insecure young lady.  (I know, hard to believe)
17) The happiest times of my life have happened since I turned 40.....(except for the birth of my son)
18) I have a very weird (aka inappropiate) sense of humor which leads to laughter at inappropriate times.  (like funerals-ugh)

I WISH this was my barn..........

19) I have dreams about owning a spectacular barn that is full of animals and a huge indoor riding arena. 
20) I didn't attend a concert until I was 38 years old. 

Now you give it a try.  Can you find 20 things about yourself that we don't know....random things? 


  1. This could be Dame Edna Everage's post. Never smoked a gladioli? You haven't lived!

    1. I'm not sure I could handle much more "LIFE" Tom, I'm really fragile. (NOT)

  2. Lots of these could be on my list, too, including #15. Hey, we lose enough brain cells with pregnancy! heh

    1. The rest of my brain cells left at the start of menopause. psssttt.


He who angers you, controls you.

And my favorite.......You can't control what others say or do, but you can control your reaction.
