nothing really.

so far, 2011 has been pretty uneventful for me.
which is ok.
january usually is a blah month anyway...
the holidays are over.
it's cold and gloomy outside.
you realize what you really spent on Christmas.
your neighbors elliptical is begging you to come back and show it some love.

honestly i have nothing exciting to really blog about...
so i guess i'll blog about me,
it has occurred to me that i really haven't given you the 411 on our little family.
so here are 25 things about me that will probably bore you...or not.  :)

i live in the same small town i was born in...

i have been married for almost 18 years to my super-cop craig who is 6 years
older than me.

i am a lover of animals... sometimes even more than some people.

i have been a hairdresser for nearly 19 years and
run a small salon out of my house.

i'm still waiting for that "dream job" ...whatever that is.
(but i will tell you, it has nothing to do with hair!)

we currently have 2 animals...miley the dog & harri the cat. one point we had 3 cats and 3 dogs all at the same time.

i love DIY projects...i will tackle just about anything.

i am a control freak and a perfectionist....i blame  love my dad for that.

i can cook, i just don't really like too.
i have to be in the right mood and really be hungry.

i  still sew on my sewing machine, standing up.
my mom taught me when i was so little that i had to stand to reach the machine.
my home-ec teachers failed to turn me. 
even the really evil one.

i am only 5 ft tall....
i'm ok with that.  sometimes it has it's advantages.

i love all things "creative"  ..sometimes my mind is so clogged with ideas swirling in my head i can't concentrate.  
is that A.D.D?

i heart flea markets, garage sales, thrift shops and antique stores.
i love a good bargain!

i have one brother that is 6 1/2 years older than me.

40, is getting ever so close.  eeeks.

i love working in the flower garden and on my fish pond.

i DISLIKE WINTER (period, exclamation point, period)

i love my 100 year old house and all it's quirks.

i am no longer frightened of painting furniture or woodwork white.  
that doesn't mean i won't wince at the first brushstroke though. :)

i have owned 2 convertibles, both green.

my favorite place to visit is?  ( fill in the blank )

i own a disgusting amount of boots and flip flops.

i currently have a nasty sinus infection that may kill me this weekend. 
(ok, so maybe that was a little dramatic)

i never go anywhere without my water bottle & lip balm.

i live in the best little neighborhood EVER!

any questions?


  1. I love how small you made the 40 comment - could barely read it! lol

  2. I love this post. Love to find out interesting facts. Are you really 5 ft. tall? If you are, you're now my best friend. You're in good company.

  3. I think this is so neat! I also lived in the same town I was born in - 30 miles west of you - ok, Hutch.

    Love, your blog. Just wait till you're almost 80! That does give one pause...

  4. you have your mom's birthday to look forward to in Jan....she's having the birthday w/cake hopefully but no aging :)

  5. Im only 5'1 there are advantages, like wearing heels and not towering above people, but disadvantages like trousers being too long and not knowing how to sew.... lol


i heart comments!!
